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.

Thanks so much for getting a picture of the Willey headstone
|Susan Bailey||Thank you for the Photo Request|
Thank you very much for the photo request. I appreciate it, particularly as you had to "dig out" the dates from the ground due to the sunken stone. Thanks again.

I think you were pretty lucky to find his wife's and his markers. Great shots even with overgrowth.
I do thank you for your work. Wish I could find more like you.

I had forgotten to thank you for the info on Apollos Hale being a Revolutionary War Veteran - I have since added that, and tried to explain the possible spelling of his given name on the bio.
Thanks also for the link. Clerks often (and STILL do) misspell names...one good thing about military records - if the applicant signs them [and is literate!] you can get the correct spelling, even if the registration officer has spelled it wrong in the heading....oh, my....history is often a matter of many opinions! I really do appreciate your help ~thanks again, Shirleen
(My internet is down & I am changing servers, so am often earthbound right now!)

For the excellent photo's of my ancestor's grave markers, I am awed at how many photo's you have provided at my request. I also appreciate that you go out of your way to find the actual grave of some ancestors that I misplaced in the wrong cemetery. I also appreciate that you have created memorials for some children that I was not aware of.These include but not limited too:
Lena Burnham- 139264907, Harry Downing- 115351814, Carl Downing- 69658432, Wesley Downing-146912500, Mary Nye- 122837011, Newton Nye- 122837005, John Nye- 122837021, Edward Nye- 122837016.
