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.

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: Coles of Greenlawn Salem
the Coles are not my relatives either. John Henry Cole is the father of Matilda "Mattie" Cole (Aug 1868 Saco, Maine - Feb 18 1915 Boston, Mass.) She married Elias Lemuel Grimes on Dec 25 1887 in Boston, Mass.. They had 3 (known) children - James, William and Rachel (Grimes)Roberts. They divorced (date unknown) but she never remarried and said she was a widow. Elias Grimes then married my great-grandmother, Minnie (Tarr) Kelley (widow of Horace Kelley). She and Elias had no children together, but he was a beloved step-father/grfather. I lived with her in Malden, Mass. Elias had died a few months before I was born in 1945.
I only want the correct info posted to help any Cole relatives with their research. Hopefully they will ask you to transfer to them.
I have found my family research to be a daunting, but rewarding, task over the years. So many names have had different spellings, or nicknames instead of actual names. I do my level best to fully document any changes I request.
Thank you so much for all your hard work. I am sure the Cole family will appreciate it as much as I do.
I did see a Gates (or Gaetz) somewhere in my tree, so maybe we will find we are related somewhere down the line. - But let's not hold our breath, LOL.
Thanks again,
Carolyn J Brown

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: Re Joel Peabody (Missouri?!)
Joel is a little confusing. In the Middleton VRs, deaths, pg 134 it actually says he's buried in GR5. GR5 is the abbrev for the Fuller North District. You currently have him in Symonds, which is GR4 and John G. has him in Oakdale with a headstone. Oakdale is GR1. Phew

I'm wondering if the VRs has a typo of GR5 next to his name? 3 of his children who died before him, Hannah d. 1810, Jessie d. 1820, and Joel A. d. 1828 are listed as buried in Oakdale and are on that headstone. His son John W. is the main name on the stone. Looking at all the dates of death, prior to his, its just kind of strange he would be over in that other cemetery. Its possible but still strange. Anyway going by the VRs I think he should be in Fuller not Symonds.

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

Find A Grave Memorial# 27205290 ~ Elisha Johnson
Hi, I am a decendant of Elisha Johnson (memorial# 27205290). I was wondering if you are a decendant and if you have any genealogy information about him or his family you would be willing to share. Thanks, Helene
