|Bio and Links|
I've been interested in history and genealogy for many years. I was delighted when we moved to New England. I have been able to combine my interests and find many new ancestors. My grandson used to visit cemeteries with me, running to a gravestone and asking me to tell him the story of the person there. Find A Grave is keeping those stories alive. When I visit a cemetery to search out our family members, I frequently take pictures of interesting headstones, common surnames, or those surrounding the stones I am seeking. I have also photographed all of the headstones in several small cemeteries. For those taken in Whitefield, NH, I have checked the cemetery records of the Whitefield Town Hall for confirmation of the information posted. Please feel free to use these photographs for your personal use, but if posting to another site, please give credit to Find A Grave for the photographs posted.If you have information on some of the memorial pages I have entered, please take time to share it with me. I will post your information with a reference to you so that others can benefit from your research.I am happy to re-unite families. I will gladly transfer the memorial pages of those who are unrelated to me into your care if he/she is one of your family members.[Researching Booth, Drown, Eastman, Haskins, Magoon, Warren, Wright,and related New England families. Also researching Mid-Western families of Schroder, Moller, Williams and more.]|

|Shirley Mitchell||Avis H Ball #96236848|
You declined my edit request to put Avis's maiden name as "Huntoon" (and remove the middle initial "H" which is there because her maiden name was Huntoon). You said it didn't match your data. Could you please tell me what you think her maiden name was? You don't have one on her memorial.
My husband's family knows this family very well, were related to many of the Ball family, and were there when Avis and her son tragically lost their lives in that fire.
On both her marriage cert and death cert her parents are listed as Frank Huntoon and Irene Brown. Because they didn't marry until 1920 and Avis was born 1916 and her brother Bryant in 1914 their father's name might be questionable (or they just hadn't married yet). With no other father ever named on a document we can only go with what is on her marriage & death certs and the fact that she was raised as a Huntoon.

Thanks for your research on C A Magoon (Charles Arthur Magoon 1849-1904). I quoted some of what you wrote on Ancestry.com in a "story" I added, and have given credit for the quote to ddbooth. I appreciate your willingness to share your work. Thank you so much,
|Emlen ||RE: Lorinda Willey|
Your are very welcome!
I haven't taken any pictures for a while as most cemeteries are closed for the winter here in Vermont. I'm sorry but I don't remember which stone it was.

|Patrick Forbes||RE: Photo Requests|
My bad, thanks for getting back to me. I've lost a bit of confidence in the Photo Request E-mail thing lately as it doesn't seem to work all that well, I've found.
|Patrick Forbes||RE: Photo Requests|
It's in Van Buren, Maine. Are you in that area? I only assumed you might be.
|Patrick Forbes||Photo Requests|
Just wondering if you checked the Photo Requests page lately. I have two I’d like if possible.
|Emlen ||MIDDLESEX CENTER CEM. WILLEY STONES|
I have many other Willey stone pictures from that plot.

|John Glassford||Thank you for the Dodge gravestone photos!|
Sophronia Abbott Dodge # 114367521
Susan Dodge # 114367549
Thank you for taking the time to take these photos. By the looks of the stones you got there just in time as Sophronia's stone is in horrible condition.
Thank you for finding a very old grave. Great great great grandfather
