|Bio and Links|
Daughter of Evelynn Grace Beebe Lovelace (Allen) (83822715, Hennessey, OK Cemetery) and Ralph Lovelace (6037350, FT Snelling National Cemetery, MN). My beautiful little sister is here: 84143742. I am very interested in genealogy of Lovelace, Neighbors, Watt (and associated Michigan families), and McCullough, Lynn, Gregory, and Beebe (and associated Oklahoma) families.|
I am a veteran (U.S. Navy, Retired), as was my father. I pay respects to all whose markers I photograph, but I have to say there is a soft spot in my heart for those who served. I love finding veteran markers and trying to learn more about those individuals.
My current project is photographing old cemeteries in and around coastal Lincoln County, Maine. When I was researching my mother's family, I found it very helpful to have websites available where people had posted historical information and photos from a variety of sources, and that's how I feel about Find-a-Grave and doing this work.
Maine is a state rich in old history and there are a lot of avid family historians looking to websites like Find-a-Grave to piece together the fabric of who they are and where they have come from. I love walking these cemeteries, photographing and trying to read old stones, and finding bits of historical information, such as shipwrecks and such. I find it so interesting some of the things people have put on the stones of their loved ones.
One of the most poignant so far, from an old slate stone in Evergreen Cemetery, Wiscasset, Maine:
"Erected by parental affection to the memory of Mr. James Whittier, son of Capt. Ebenezer Whittier & Elizabeth his wife, who died April 17th, 1798, of a consumption on a passage to the West Indies, Aged 25. The disease which terminated his existence originated in the death of his fair and betrothed friend who lies interred near this monument. In life they loved, in death they are not divided." (Sadly, the other stone is no more, so I never discovered his "fair and betrothed friend.").
It means a lot for me to contribute to Find-a-Grave so people can learn about their families or conduct research.
I do my best to be as accurate as possible with the records and photographs, following the naming conventions and guidelines of Find-a-Grave. Please contact me if you have questions about the information I've posted. I'm happy to make corrections and additions on anything I've uploaded, and I'm happy to transfer your family members to you, however, PLEASE USE THE "EDIT" BUTTON and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION". I will gladly respond if reached via this method.

Val, The transfer of Alfred and Sarah's memorials was made this morning. Thanks so much, Linda
Wow thanks. That would be great. I assumed by coincidence that someone else requested the transfer.
Thanks Val, but you didn't transfer them to me. I guess someone is wondering why! Thanks though.
Thanks Val for adding the links for Alfred Conelley and Sarah Hanscom. After looking for them all this time and just finding them it was amazing that someone else found them too and just requested transfer of management!
Your documentation of Over View has already led me to other new clues. Thanks again, Linda
Thank you so much for posting the memorial with the picture of the headstone for Alfred G and Sarah H Conelley. I had been searching for them for some time. I had traced him from NY to Maine then to Massachusetts. You finding them for me back in Maine is not surprising. Its unfortunate that there are no dates on the headstone but I'm now a step closer to finding out.

Good morning and thank you for the kind message. I have been getting many of the "Other" kind of late. One thing that you may have noticed, maybe not, but the cool thing about his photograph is that his signature is on the backside too.

Thank you, Val...that was fast...LOL
Val, I wondered if you would be so kind as to consider allowing me to manage my 3x uncle, John Hilton, Find A Grave Memorial# 101970152. He died in Andersonville Prison. Thanks so much! Terri
