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.

John H. Sayward (Saywood)
Hi Peter, thanks to you I have sent in correction for John and his family. They are Sayward rather than Saywood. John H. is the son of Henry Sayward & Orravilla M. Cousens. His wife is Kate Varney Sayward, Stella is their daughter, Reynolds most likely a son. They also have Carroll buried in a different cemetery. I did not find Orravill M. Cousens in any cemetery? Have you run across the name? She died the same years as her husband, Henry in 1869. Thanks for all your help. Suki Sayward Davey

RE: Reynolds Sayward
OK I found the records for Reynolds, Kate, John, Sherman and Stella, they were under the Saywood spelling. I put in the photo requests. Hopefully the photos will show the Sayward spelling and I can do a correction request. Thanks for all you help. If you ever get to York, Maine you should check out the Sayward Mansion. It's owned by the Historical Society now, but is exactly as it was when Judge Jonathan Sayward owned it. Was passed down through the family until the 1970s. Two old aunties had their photos taken in the back porch doorway 120 years ago, I got to go there and do the same. It's awesome. Judge Sayward is buried in the Old York Burial Grounds where there is a marker for the ones killed in a massacre in the late 1600's. Worth the drive. Regards, Suki Sayward Davey

RE: Smiths in Arlington
Hello Peter, Thank you so much for your time to find and take pictures of the Smith family grave stone for me. Lawrence Sr was a brother of my Grandfather Charles E Smith Sr. from NY. I think Clinton Smith may still be alive so I don't want to start a memorial for him yet. I have been trying to locate any of the Smith relatives I may have in Maine but so far have not been able to find them. I was hoping to take a trip to Turner Maine but just can't seem to get there. I would think Lawrence IV grave stone should be close by this one. Again Thank you very much for your time it is very much appreciated. Bob Smith Pleasant Valley NY

RE: Gillikins in Smith Cemetery
Peter,
Thank you for the photos of Alfred & Phyllis Gillikin. I have not traced Alfred to my family
in N.C yet. If you want to post the Campbell's
headstones, please do so.

RE: Saywards in Cumberland County
I checked the Smith Cemeteries in Cumberland County. The Old Smith Burial Grounds did not appear to have Sayward, nor did Smith Street. The larger Smith Cemetery in Windham had one Albert Sayward, and when I tried to request a photo it came back with "only one photo is allowed" and the photo on there is the Cemetery photo. Strange.

RE: Saywards in Morrell Cemetery
Yes. I did all of them this morning for every Sayward in Cumberland county. Did I miss some? I could do York County as well - Morrell is in Cumberland County - correct? Let me know if I missed some. Suki

Farrar and related families
You're a kind soul.
Thank you for doing the hard work for us in going out and figuring out where the two Farrars are buried. Hope you have a very nice Easter weekend.
