RE: Abigail Williams May DGB, The records can be downloaded online. I have a complete listing for the cemetery and tombs. One problem was with reference to the old tomb numbering system vs the new system.
I have sent the correction (tomb number) to the memorial manager for Abigail's FindAGrave memorial and the 'Plot' entry has now been changed so there will be no conflict with the changed pictures.
The book is called "Gravestone Inscriptions: Central Burying Ground". It is out of copyright and can be downloaded. I will send you an image of the page that gives Abigail's information if you like.
Thanks for the prompt response and thanks for taking the pictures at this cemetery. Jim
RE: Nathaniel Craft Thanks for bringing the duplicates to my attention. The Nathaniel Craft linked to Patience Topliffe is the correct one (he is my wife's 6th great grandfather). According to Massachusetts birth records, Nathaniel was born on 11 Jan 1676 in Roxbury. Massachusetts records also show he married Patience on 26 Nov 1701 in Roxbury. In addition, his death date of 8 Sep 1746 is confirmed by the same records. I can provide copies of these documents if you wish. We are hoping to visit the Eliot Burying ground sometime this year (we live in California) and wonder if you can provide information on gaining access to the site - we've seen published information citing the difficulty in gaining access to the cemetery.
RE: Nathaniel Cheever, 14407056 DGB.I know its been quite awhile since you sent me an email.I Guess it has been corrected as I could not find where I placed his Grave site on FINDAGRAVE .COM. Since Samuel Cheever Married into my Family to Elizabeth Dissamore/aka Dismore aka Dismore I may have made an error while posting Samuel Cheever as he did have a Son named Nathan Cheever.I am how ever pleased to correct any mistakes I make on findagrave.com or ancestry.com as records from 1600/1700/1800/and even early 1900 are full of mistakes as they also used Soundex system and what they think they heard was not what was said.Like my families last name.Dissmore,Dismore,Dissamore,and finally Dinsmore which is the correct spelling.But was not corrected until 1860s generation in Salem,Marblehead,Ma in Essex County and even Boston and New Hampshire area.Thanks.
Bridges at Broad Cemetery Hi, You posted a grave photo for two children with surname Bridges at this cemetery. There was actually a third child that had not been added to findagrave, and whose name can just barely be read in this photo. He was Gilbert Chadwick Bridges. I created a memorial for him. Noting you give permission for reuse of photos, and to save you the hassle, I lifted your photo for this new memorial. If you prefer to post it yourself, let me know. --Amy
