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: Libbys in Brooklawn
I created the two memorials for the Libby's. I am maxed out on photo requests at the moment - will have to wait a few days do send those. If you want, you can load the pictures directly without waiting for the request.

Thanks again!

Leland Wentworth Jr

While the Woodlawn cemetery website does list a grave for Leland, Jr, there was no marker. Coincidentally, I found a memorial in Gray Village Cemetery (#118284592). I am unclear if this is a cenotaph or what. Let me know & I will return to Woodlawn to take a photo of the section. I have taken a photo of the gravesite of his parents and will load that momentarily. Again, there was no marker.

Yes, the memorial in Gray Village Cemetery is correct for Leland Jr who died at age 3 months. He is buried with his Skillings grandparents.

Certainly is odd why Leland Nelson Wentworth, Sr and his wife Eleanor (Skillings) do not have a gravestone in Woodlawn Cemetery. Most of the Wentworths are buried in Woodlawn.

Thanks for the photos of Penny & Frederick Laughlin and Dr. Sperry. I am uncertain how they are connected but I will continue to work on it. I appreciate your time and effort.

Thank you so much for the photo of the burial monument of Ada M West Barbrick. And thank you for finding her husband Richard Skelling Barbrick. We created a profile for him (Find A Grave Memorial# 161465129) so you may post the photo you have. Have a wonderful day!

George and Hallie Weeks and family
Back in May you fulfilled my request for a picture of the stone of Hallie Weeks and her family. Hallie was my mother-in-law's aunt and thus my husband's grand aunt. I am so sorry that I have been negligent in responding to your kindness. Although I am late with my gratitude, your efforts are not unappreciated.

Thank you

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
