Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Beverly, Mass into a family that took grave tending very seriously. Many of my earliest memories are of being with my parents planting flowers and tending the graves of many past family members. In my elementary school years I would walk through the Central Cemetery morning and evening every day to get to school and back. The only thing that ever bothered me was seeing stones where the names were either gone or almost gone. It is the loss of a person all over again. I would like to play a small part in preserving some of these links to the past.

Do you have the grave marker inscription for Uri Tuttle #83316783? It's impossible to read from the images you've supplied.

Hi Dick,

Thank you for taking some photos of the marker of my 5th great grandfather, Samuel Downs (III). May I have your permission to use the photos in my ancestry.com family tree? I will give you proper credit in the caption. Thanks.

RE: Grove Cemetary

Incidentally, our childhood 'cemetery memories' are similar. Did the same thing with my parents until they passed. Decades ago, my grandfather had been a longtime superintendent @ Saint James, living in a house adjacent to the cemetery (along the old Route 8 / then 'Riverside Drive'). We used to play hide-'n-seek behind the monuments. ;o/

RE: Grove Cemetary
Thanks, Dick. I'm used to cleaning around (or cleaning off) markers, too; and I walk away with a good feeling. Mt stomping grounds are nextdoor at Saint James. I'm much less familiar with Grove, and get a bit disoriented; but my photo requests are for people I once knew. Just posted another and do hope that you'll stumble upon the Petereit graves at some point.

Regards,
RonC
