Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photo: "Ancestry vs. Progeny".

I have been active in family history, in Massachusetts since 1975, Nova Scotia & Europe since 1980, and in New Brunswick, Maine & world-wide since 2000.

My research is focused on eastern Massachusetts, southern New Hampshire, the upper Connecticut River Valley, nearly all of Maine, nearly all of Nova Scotia, Kent York & Queens Counties in New Brunswick, Pelletiers & Ouellet(te)s of Salem MA and Kamouraska in Quebec, Bonavista & Trinity Bays in Newfoundland, Castle Rock & Tower Washington, Metro Portland Oregon, Ostholstein Ploen Segeberg Kiel & Hamburg in Germany, Sarreguemines L'Havre & Paris in France, Faial in the Azores of Portugal, Valparaiso Limache Olmue & Santiago in Chile, Lochaber Great-Glen Ardnamurchan Sunart Muck Mull Perth Blair-Atholl Galloway Dumfries Annan Gretna & KPF in Scotland, Tyrone Derry Londonderry Fermanagh & Armagh in Ireland, and Suffolk Norfolk Herts Bucks Dorset & Middlesex in England.

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.

Larry Tally
Alice Rowell photo request
Good afternoon Barry,
My name is Larry Tally and I accepted your request for a photo of the Alice Rowell headstone in Acacia Memorial Cemetery in Modesto, CA. You also requested that the volunteer look over the surrounding area for additional names that you supplied. While I was taking this photo I did spend time looking for the additional folks that you had listed. Unfortunately, there were no headstones with the names you had listed. I also checked the cemetery record online and did not find these names listed. I loaded the photo for Alice Rowell.
Best regards,
Larry Tally

RE: Hollywood Forever photo request - Reuben Littlefield
Glendale Forest Lawn is not anywhere near Hollywood Forever, they are miles apart.

Sometimes bodies are moved after burial, so perhaps this may have happened to some members of this family.

One suggestion for finding others in the family would be to ask Hollywood Forever to let you know if other family members are listed.

A second suggestion is to check the Forest Lawn cemetery website - they have online burial records for the Forest Lawn cemeteries in the Los Angeles area.

Hollywood Forever photo request - Reuben Littlefield
Barry, I wanted to let you know that I have claimed your photo request for Reuben Littlefield in Hollywood Forever cemetery. I plan to visit the cemetery later this week, probably Friday. Unfortunately Reuben's memorial does not indicate any burial plot location. The cemetery will not provide this information to photo volunteers, but you can find their contact information at You can either call them, or fill out the information request and they should get back to you in a few days. If you are unable to get burial plot location, neither I nor any volunteer will know which section he is in, so your help is appreciated in attempting to get the burial information from the cemetery.

Best wishes,

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,

RE: John P. Whitten
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.

RE: Irving Johnson and Helen J. (Burgess)
I'm afraid I'm just a photo taker and don't do genealogy so I don't know the answer to your question. If not San Bernardino City Hall maybe Sam Bernardino County Hall of Records?? If you find her let me know I'll be happy to do the photo if she's near.

RE: Duplicates
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.

hello...i am sorry, but i can not provide you with any additional information. I merely photographed the memorial and entered the names. Maybe you could contact the church for further 10-43.

Happy taphophiling
