Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family genealogy is something I have enjoyed since I was young. As I walk through cemeteries visiting family graves, I often wonder about the history of each individual.

I live in Barre, Vermont, home to a large granite industry. One website devoted to Barre granite says, "It has been estimated that one-third of the public and private monuments and mausoleums in America -- and they are millions in number -- are products of the Barre quarries and Barre's "international" community of sculptors, artisans, mechanics and laborers."

Perhaps this is why I have an affinity for cemeteries and graves. The artists here make the stones and memorials into works of art. I am happy to share some of them on this website.

Apollos Hale
Thank you for your edit on Apollos and especially for adding the wonderful gravestone photos for him, his wife and daughter. I appreciate that so much!

The edit thing concerns me, as he is an ancestor of mine and all our family records spell it "Apollos", of course, after the bible spelling.

It looks like the stone is carved APOLLAS - with the last A having the thin line of the A very faint, rather than it being an I.

Since findagrave does not have a feature in the program to pick up "sounds like" spelling, it worries me that since "Apollos" is the universally accepted spelling, that changing it to an A ...or an I ...would make his name difficult to search - what do you think? I do not like to reject an edit, but I'm afraid it will change vital information.

Rather than my marking it "declined" would you consider just removing it? Thanks so much for your help.... Cheers~ Shirleen

You doll you! Thanx so much for taking photos of their stones - makes them seem ever so much closer than great-times-four grandparents... :-)
