If I've taken a photo of a grave, please ask for permission before republishing elsewhere, online or offline. If I maintain a memorial, and it's for one of your ancestors or relatives, I will almost certainly transfer management of the memorial to you, gladly, if it is not a nearer relative to either myself or my wife.
I'm the US GenWeb Project Volunteer Town Coordinator for Middleton & Beverly, in Essex County, Massachusetts. Feel free to ask me questions about these or neighboring towns, about researching in places where my research has taken me, or on genealogy or the cemeteries we've visited.
RE: Thanks re Welman Harriman I'm glad the correction worked out - sometimes the stone is wrong. I'm trying to do a 100% Find A Grave inventory of Maple Grove Cem., Prospect - adding and correcting as I go. I'm about 2/3 done. Charlie
I cut & paste the memorial nos. on here for the links. So I only do one at a time (the Edit function tells me I can't add another link while one from me is pending), so it can take a while before I can suggest all of the links that I know about.
My account here was inactive for over 10 years until I recently re-activated it after noticing the family link ability. During my inactive period I changed my email address & forgot my p/w, so it took some time for me to hear back from Find A Grave management.
Glad to see you're still active in genealogy. My activity level waxes and wanes. I'm way overdue to update my file at the WorldConnect Project.
Sarah "Sally" Putnam Felton hello Barry, in response to your note, I don't link to Burial Unknown. Please see the Find A Grave guidelines with regard to Burial Unknown and the intent for that category. Use of Burial Unknown as a placeholder for anything other than a very recent death (30 days) is inappropriate. I'm very clear on my profile page that I do not link to Burial Unknown.
I have indicated her parents in the first line of the bio and have cited two sources.
I believe you did ask me to link Sally to her parents before and I declined. I am declining again for the same reason.....I do not link to burial unknowns. Per Find a Grave rules, burial unknowns are allowed for recent deaths only and you have 30 days to find the burial location or the memorial should be deleted. These memorials you made are well over the 30 days allowed. This site is called Find A Grave for the purpose of finding the final disposition of a person. Memorials should not be created just to link family members together. There are other sites for that purpose. I did make a note in her bio naming her parents and I see you have a hot link to her memorial in the unknowns you created. Sorry if I sound like I am lecturing, but burial unknowns are a big pet peeve of mine.
Hannah Marie Peaslee Preston According to the Kane County, Illinois Death Index Hannah died in 1884-1885. Henry was her second husband, married 22 Apr 1881 Norfolk County, Massachusetts. Their first daughter Florence Jean was born Sept 1881 in Massachusetts and second daughter Pearl was born 1883. Pearl was born in Kane County, Ill where the family had moved circa 1882. Henry moved back to Massachusetts after Hannah's death. He remarried 17 May 1885 Marietta Flint in Essex County, Massachusetts. Pearl Preston, died 1933, is the mother of my dearly beloved mother-in-law who is 88 years old. Respectfully submitted, Sherrie Paty Barber
RE: John P. Whitten Barry This is one that needs a call to the office. In the burial report is a Hannah Whitten Preston. She is assigned plot: uc-234-2. The odd part is there is no internment date. So we may need to look at the burial card for the answer. As you know John P Whitten is in uc-234-1. So they should be side by side. When I took the pic there was no gravestone except John's the area beside his was unmarked. She might be in an unmarked grave beside John. The cemetery number is: Union Cemetery 603-528-3423; You will probably talk with Susanne perley. Although the worker Jack will probably do the work of actually poling to see if there is a grave in uc-234-2. if so and no headstone then it is unmarked and the person at the internment time neglected to write the info on the card. If the card has a date and the typed burial report neglected to have it included then we would know when and where she is and no poling is necessary. You will have to call and ask if is listed and if they can see if she is there, as a concerned relative. sincerely rc pickwick
RE: Duplicates Barry: They are not duplicate cemeteries. In Wilmot there is an old cemetery, that was referred to as the Wiswall Cemetery. It is on Find A Grave as Wilmot 1. The second one in Wilmot is next to the Baptist church. Years ago, that one was referred to as the Union Church Cemetery. In obituaries today, the newer cemetery is often referred to as the Wiswall cemetery. Edward and Harriett Fales are in what I refer to as the Wiswall Cemetery. I have them entered in that cemetery. It now appears that they have been added to the Union Church one. They should be moved to the Wilmot 1 cemetery. Once that is done, I will be happy to delete my entries. The picture on Edwards grave (not mine)appears to be clearer that the one I took. That picture should be copied to his wife. Then I can delete mine. Ric
