Bio and Links
Bio Photo In early 2011 following the death of my mother at age 95, as I was cleaning out drawers and boxes, I came across scads of family genealogy information and photos that had been accumulated by my father and maternal grandparents over the years. Since that time, I have become obsessed with continuing to trace my family's lineage in the hopes of passing the information down to my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.

When I became stuck trying to find the death location of one of my second great grandfathers, Josephus Morgan, I found it on Find A Grave. I was so impressed with this website and the volunteer who had taken photos of his grave, I decided to become a volunteer and give something back to what I had been given. While I signed up to volunteer earlier in 2012, it is only in June that I have taken the plunge and claimed/fulfilled my first missions. I have been bitten by the bug, and hope to complete many more. My wife Marsha has joined me in helping to find sites and trimming the grass and sweeping the leaves off markers. I will be happy to transfer management of memorials I have created to any relative.

RE: Whitneys in Harvard Center Cemetery
Hi Peter,
So glad you were able to zoom in.
The word is "undissembled" means "not pretended", "genuine" it's a word not used much today according to an online dictionary.
You did better than I did trying to figure out some of the words. I have to remember that what looks like an "f" may really be an "s".
Imagine the time it took to engrave a headstone like Oliver's back then, and the cost.
I see old stones that clearly shows someone took shortcuts in the amount of letters in one's name. Guess if your paying per letter you cut corners where you can.

More snow coming tomorrow so it may be a while until I can get back to Harvard Center cemetery.
Have a good week. Gail

Hi again Peter,
If you click on the close up photos that I took then click on them again they will zoom in really close. Hope this helps for now until I can get back and do retakes.

Hi Peter,
Of course you may use the photos in your tree.
It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday when I left for Harvard, but 10 minutes after arriving at the cemetery the clouds just seem to hang over the town, blocking the sun, making some stones hard to read. Can't win, sometimes the sun is too bright and I pray for a cloud. Can you zoom in more?
I plan on going back and retaking them on a day I know will be mostly sunny but figured these shots would do for now. We have no snow, at the moment, so I hope to get back there soon.
Wish I could trace my ancestors that far back in this country, my earliest arrived in America in 1870, so I've exhausted all the U.S. vital records I could find.

RE: Laura Sullivan
I'm sorry Peter, I have no way of knowing if memorials she created can be transferred to you now that she is deceased, I will see if I can contact Find A Grave some how and ask them what I can do

Thank You for all that you do for this site and families. In this place of time we really don't know our neighbors let alone our past relatives.

Glad you were able to use the Info. Locating burial sites for CW veterans is a hobby of mine
