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.

Thank you for getting the pic! I have one on a dead cellphone and apparently TracFone makes it impossible to transfer images to a laptop.
Walked part of Saint Monica's Cemetery and the squish is almost gone. Found one stone not yet recorded.
Hiram Stanford Martin, Thank you as always for the great photo's of his grave marker. I just discovered them and you posted them some time ago.

Thanks very much, Kim - I'm glad you reminded me about the photo-request facility on here, too. I posted requests for Luther and Sarah, and a few other Pennimans. I hear you about the snow: I'm living near Watertown, NY, and the last lump of snow is clinging tenaciously. "They say" we will have temps into the 70s tomorrow. If so, I think we'll see the last of the snow! :-)

Thank you for attempting to find Nathan. His stone was placed last summer. He should be right next to Edna Fletcher Clark, who has a marker photo by you. At the Clark monument, follow the foot stones inward--a lot inward. I believe this family is all in a straight line from the original stones at the monument. I appreciate your efforts.

Sarah and Luther Penniman were my great-times-4 grandparents. Do they have gravestones? I see you've added a photo their son Frederick's memorial. If Sarah and Luther have gravestones, could you please photograph them the next time you're in Elmwood? I realize - especially after this past winter! - that it may be a while before all the snow melts and the weather warms up. :-) If there are no stones on their graves, please let me know so I can record that in my research.

Just wanted to thank you for the info on the Edwin and Harriet Spencer family.
Also wanted to let you know that I have added photos for them and did some linking of Edwin's children.
