Bio and Links
An interest in creating a family history book for my family led me to realize how much information you can get from tombstones and cemeteries. It's amazing how unique they can be to the individual and the story they can tell.

I got the information from you. It says it in the obit. "DAKIN of Northampton, Jan. 29, 1978, Mary J. (McGowan) Wheelock Dakin of Rockridge, 25 Cole Meadow Road .... In her memory, gifts may be made to the E.F. Young Memorial Fund,Rockridge, address above."

Rockridge is not a town but a senior living facility in Northampton. If she did not die there she died at the hospital 2 miles away. At her age it is unlikely she would have been sent to the hospital when she was already in a medical facility. Either way, she would have died in Northampton.

RE: Grave of Anna Mary Taylor
You are welcome! In case you may need the information in the future, I referred to this listing of the burials from the 1930s. Going row by row, I got every stone there. Unfortunately Anna's was not among them.

Catherine Pugh
1) Others buried with Catherine Pugh at Plot Location Hanover 90 are:
Edward Knox Sober (1863-1942)
Annabel Bole Sober (1860-1935)
Lillian Bole Critsor (1869-1960)

2) If Joseph is buried at West Laurel Hill Cemetery, he must be buried elsewhere in the cemetery, or his headstone at Hanover 90 must be unmarked. To be completly honest, I had a hard time finding Catherine's headstone; I was looking for her under a family headstone under her married name (Pugh), not her maiden name (Sober).

Hi,

Yes, you may use any of my photos you'd like including on the Ancestry site. Please credit me as follows.

Indicate " 2010-2014 John Glassford on Find A Grave" as source of photo.

I'll transfer the Dearborns to you at West Parish Cemetery here in Andover, MA. Shame the cemetery did not send you the photographs.

Best,

Marcy Dunning
Emily Hinds White
Hello. My name is Marcy Dunning and I am Miriam Dyer Dunning's daughter. Mom was trying to remember where Emily lived in Baltimore in the late 1930's, so I started digging around and found the research you've done here. I had the Baltimore Public Library search a couple of old city directories from 1930 and 1936, but the librarian didn't find a listing in those. I'm wondering if you have any other information.

Thanks!
Marcy

Thank you for catching the wrong death date. I noticed I didn't have her married name on the memorial either. I must have been having some serious senior moments when I entered this one!

RE: Lettice P C Fellow
You are certainly welcome! The headstones in the cemetery are unfortunately not cared for very well. Many are partially covered with dirt and grass. I am glad that his is legible.

Dear B Dearborn,

Thank you so much for posting the tombstone photo of my cousin Floyd "Mike" Bruce Libby Sr. for my family and me!

Helping those who live so far away from their deceased ancestors and relatives is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is also a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us.

May God bless you and yours in all your endeavors!

With heartfelt gratitude,
Kati McSweeney
