As a teacher and with a BA in history, genealogy became a natural outflow for learning the past. Learning about it with direct connections of ancestors have made many historical events become more personal and alive. This has even impacted my students as they do a year long project of their ancestry. My wife, son, and I live in historical New England and enjoy the ability to visit many of the United States places of historical beginnings as well as some of the oldest cemeteries. The photo you see is of my grandfather in the 1920's.

By the way, what was your grandfather's name?..The one you have a photo of on your Find A Grave profile? Just curious.

Locust Cemetery, Poland, Maine Was looking at one of your photos (http://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=90877523&PIpi=60758386)and I'm curious. How did you determine who this is? Do you have a cemetery map for this cemetery?
Freeman Strout Where did you get your information? I have a book that had every burial in Pine Grove Cemetery cemetery that was documented in 1967 by Doris M Roland for the Pejepscot Historical Society, Brunswick ME. & Helen B. McPhee for the Bath Marine Museum, Bath, ME. Only Strouts that they found is on pages 86 & 14 there is know freeman Strout in there. Maybe after 1967 strout bodies could have been moved there. I will do more research when I get back. I'm sure I did not make up that Freeman Strout info 7 years ago. Your Friend, Stuart
