|Bio and Links|
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.

Hi Peter, Yes, you may use the photos. I'm happy the stone was so legible after 280 years! Mary
|Paula Towne McRonald||RE: Re John Lowell|
The newer book is more accurate. It was checked rather carefully I understand, but like any book will have a typo or two, plus further research may find an error, or more info, but all in all it's accurate. I have yet to find 100% even in the best books, but this one is close. I've followed the references and sources for four people and they have proven to be accurate. And I used what I found for a lineage society to prove those generations. Follow up is always a good idea. But when I did, as I said, it was spot on.
|Paula Towne McRonald||Re John Lowell|
A really good book was written by Christopher Child about the Lowell family...you can get a copy at NEHGS. The Descendants of Judge John Lowell of Newburyport, Massachusetts, by Scott C. Steward and Christopher C. Child Also The Douglas Richardson Royal Ancestry Series for the Royal lines of Percival Lowell. Well researched and sourced.

Moses is my husband's 4th great grandfather. I have almost given up hope for a gravestone picture. I believe the Lowell Cemetery is quite small and he died a long time ago. If I get anything, I will let you know.

You're welcome to use my photo of the stone for Lydia Morgan and Seth Benson. "Credit" isn't important to me; it's just that I get upset with people's sense of entitlement and lack of courtesy. Thanks so much for asking before taking.
|Chazmanbsr||RE: Benjamin Morgan|
Good Evening Peter, Thank You for your kind words. Sure please feel free to use the photos as requested.
|Dina Woodman Reed||RE: Edward & Joanna Woodman|
I forgot to say that I would be glad to offer any information I have....just ask
|Debra Ann||Thank You.|
Thank you for the transfer of my parents memorials to me. You and Marsha must know I will take good care of them.
|Bob O||RE: James Henry Downs & Lydia A Booth Downs|
Feel free to use the pictures anyway you want - glad I could get them for you.
