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.

McLaughlin graves

Thank you very much for going to check on my request for the McLaughlin graves at St. Francis. If you would like to email me the photo, my email address is It is truly sad how much of a state of disrepair the back hill of the cemetery is. The McLaughlin children never had any children of their own, so no one was left to care for their graves.

RE: Maria Jordan
I wanted to let you know that I have since used your advice on other flat headstones(scraping the dirt away) thanks for the tip! Jim

No problem. I came across it while I was looking for someone else and noticed that you had created the memorial.

FYI... Ellen Hoadley Payne was Sheldon Payne's 2nd wife. Her brother, Frank Hoadley, was the sexton of Grove Cemetery for 40 years from 1887-1927.

Hi again,
YES, please transfer Sheldon to my care. I goofed when I said that he is buried in Hillside Cemetery in Naugatuck. I know (now) that he is buried in Grove Cemetery with his first wife, Mary Price Payne. His second wife, Ellen Hoadley Payne, is the one buried in Hillside with the Hoadleys. thanks so much.Renee
