Kerr Memorials
Thanks Skip, I am wondering if you know if Murdoch & Effie's son Malcolm (Martin) John Kerr is buried in the family plot? He died in Quincy ironiocally in 1902 also but before his father. His wife's name was Helena (Lena) and she outlived him by at least 20 years and may be buried with him.

Thanks : )

Hi, Skip,

Fancy meeting you here; I remember you from Northeastern.

Made the fixes to the memorial. Would you like me to transfer him to you, since he's an ancestor?

re: Memorial# 80810081

Hi Skip,

I added the family linkages as suggested. I may or may not have told you that I documented (and enjoyed doing so) the entire old part of Highland Cemetery (formerly known as old north burying ground until being merged with other cemeteries as Highland by the town) for 8 months in 2011. It took a looong time. I am pretty sure I did not miss a gravestone (when I go back to start where I left off last I always re-take the photo just in case if I am unsure). If the other related family graves are there in the burying ground, there is a good possibility that the stones are either 1-just a stump of it's old self 2-never existed which was/is very common to have memorial-less internments, are now gone/destroyed completely or are currently illegible. BUT... hopefully I missed some gravestones and they are still there. LOL!!
