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: Frank Cragin in Woodlawn

Thank you for the message. I wasn't planning on creating any new memorials. I hope that you do! Just need Frank and Beulah's TS. Their child Virginia married Malcolm Craft Mundt. And Beulah was a Gardner. (Ernest and Ella).

Thanks again!

I give up. I checked ancestry, my other photo, and a 1999 detailed transcription of the Weskeag cemetery.

Did you notice that Find a Grave merged Weskeag and South Thomaston Village Cemetery? Nice.

RE: John Hayden
I have no doubt about Feb 2. Compare to the 2 in the 27 below. And, the way the 8 is formed in 1844 gives a clue about how the tail of a 3 would look. It is not a 3.

Can't tell about the I-. I do have another photo to look at and I will check it out to see if it helps. I am sure it is not H, and don't think it is a D. My guess for now would be I, U, or P.

The message about Grace Hodsdon was meant for someone else. Sorry if it confused you.

You are more than welcome for the photo. You can use it any way you wish. The more the photos are shared, the more we all enjoy.

Thank you so very much for accepting and fulfilling my photo request so quickly, and also for finding my Aunt & Uncle without a plot number! You're the best! Couldn't help noticing in reading your bio that our stories/motivations for doing this work are so similar. There's nothing I'd rather do than spend a beautiful afternoon in the cemetery with my camera...but life keeps getting in the way! Again, thanks from "the county" for getting this photo for our family.
