Bio Photo Hello,
My name is Matthew A. Voorhees, I am currently sixteen years old and have been an active member of Find A Grave since I was twelve years old. Ancestry is my passion, since 2008 I have been fascinated with history, mostly my family's history. I also collect old ephemera (Paper, Diaries, etc.), photographs (Dags, Ambros, Tintypes, etc) as well as several family heirlooms that have been passed down to me. I only rarely do Grave Photo Request because of my school schedule. Feel free to message and or email me.

I'll be glad to transfer any of your family to you that you want. You can request each transfer via SAC, or if there are several in the same cemetery, a list of names works better than a list of memorial numbers for me.

RE: Jonas Kendall, Dunstable, MA
No problem on the delay, Matthew. I have not gone back to the cemetery yet. Even though it is just up the street from me, I need to go there in the morning, because of the way the sun hits the gravestones in the afternoon. As I think I indicated, there is a whole family plot where Jonas is buried. I can photograph each stone and/or copy as much info as I can, if that helps your friend. If you want to contact me directly, you can use my email

Jonas Kendall, Dunstable, MA
Hi! Matthew, I found the gravestone of Jonas Kendall (1833-1920) and took some photos, but am not happy with them, so I will go back again. His wife's stone was also there. There is actually a family plot with about 20 stones.

Are you interested in any other info from this?

Dickensheets, Marian Drake
Hello, Matthew!

You posted the grave listing for Marian Drake Dickensheets in Carmen Cemetery in Hardin County, OH. This leaves me very curious. I would like to know... Did you go to Hardin County and find her grave there? Are you related to her? I am.

I am trying to understand her death place being in Greene County and her burial in Hardin County. That's a long way to have moved a body in May 1844. They usually buried the bodies soon after death back then. Her surviving husband stayed in Greene County after her death before moving to Miami County.

I have her burial as being in Carman Baptist Church Cemetery in Bellbrook, Greene County, Ohio... Contacts in Greene County say the cemetery later became Fairview Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery or simply Primitive Baptist Cemetery.

Please tell me how you have "found" her to be buried in Hardin County.

Thank you for sharing your research.

transfer request
there is a "form" on the site to do a transfer request. it automatically has all the options on it to do the request, including your number. I see no option to just transfer it to you, seems there should be a way, but i do not know what it is.
