|Bio and Links|
My recent dive into my family's genealogy has led me to sign up as a volunteer photographer with Findagrave.com. My world changed the day I stood in a little graveyard in Middleborough, Massachusetts and saw three generations of Richmonds, my grandfathers and grandmothers, x2, x3, and x4. I hope that my photos help others feel the way I felt that day.|
My summer project in 2011 was documenting the three cemeteries on Long Island in Casco Bay, Maine while I was there on vacation for two weeks.
I have a legal background and a penchant for dressing up in historical costumes. In my spare time, I sing traditional songs of the British Isles at a 1780 colonial tavern south of Boston, Massachusetts. I perform for libraries, historical societies, museums and coffeehouses. See www.songsofthecolonialdays.com and www.blanchardstavern.com for more information.

I understand about the weather. I have had this happen to me also. I would rather the volunteers be safe than sorry.
If it is not too far, yes please, I would love the markers of Arthur's parents to be photo'd and if you happen to see more Goulds, it would be nice to have them. I am working on my Converse side and they are a part of the Converse Connection! I am very appreciative! I am in Tennessee so you can see it would be difficult for me to go and see for myself. Not sure who has the Memorials since I am doing my emails first.
Very Grateful and have a wonderful day!
Be careful out there!

Thank you so much for the photo for Arthur. It is greatly appreciated.
|Spirit Baker||RE: Richmond edits|
You are welcome with the help. I was just passing by and saw 2 small cemeteries and photoed them and now adding info. My phone isn't working well so I couldn't get Find A Grave to work to see if they were already photoed or I would have never stopped. I was going to go to another cemetery but it was just too hot for my pup. Sounds like you are very busy with the CW. My GGG Grandpa was wounded and died in VA during his 2nd enlistment leaving behind a 2 yr old son who was then abandoned by his mother, my GG Grandpa.
Thank you for keeping up with my edits. I still have some 50 stones to go.

You are most welcome for the information, and please feel free to use the photos and information provided as you choose. It is wonderful to see that there are people who care enough to make sure that these men, and the sacrifices they made, are being remembered.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help out.

Lynn, I saw your photo request for Private Desmond. Since he was one of the many prisoners who died at the Salisbury prison site during the civil war, he doesn't have an individual headstone of his own. Most of those who died there at the prison were buried in the mass burial trenches in what became the original Salisbury National Cemetery. I uploaded three photographs with information in the comments sections to the memorial for you. One of the Unknown Soldiers Monument, one of the trench area, and one of the individual "Unknown soldier" markers that stand around the borders of the trenches. Sadly, that is the best that can be done for those men who died in captivity at the prison in most cases. There are a handful of Union soldiers buried in the cemetery who do have their own headstones, but Private Desmond isn't one of them.

The volunteer photo was my pleasure.
Have an awesome day, Bill
Hello Lynn, You are very welcome….It was a beautiful day and I was in the neighborhood…The Superintendent at the Central Cemetery was wonderful…I know there are other photo requests for Central Cemetery that pre date the Aldens, however I was informed that as a result of a fire years ago many of the grave location registers were lost…I may still be able to generally locate an area and on a good day get some exercise….Glad I could have been of help…Don't hesitate top ask again. All the best Ed

You're very welcome. I am glad I could have helped with the town's project. There are many Massachusetts soldiers buried at Chalmette, let me know if you need any more photos.
Unfortunately Chalmette is one of the poorest maintained National cemeteries I have visited, and many of the headstone are difficult to read because of erosion.
