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.

Thank you for finding George's parents!!

George Mason
Hi Barry,
You may have George Augustin Mason linked to the wrong mother. Our Drusilla would have been 13 when she gave birth to George. I did find a Drusilla and John Mason that lived in another state. They may have been in Maine when their children died. Just a thought.

RE: Re Back Ridge George Mason
Hi Barry,
Glad you called me out on this in such a nice way. Will you please remove Thomas as the father. I was finding so much family info that I didn't read what you had wrote about John. I knew Thomas and Drusilla have a son George.
Hope you can find out who John is!! Let me know.
Have a great Summer!!

My best,

RE: Re Harold Douglas Raymond
Hey Barry,
As you, related but not descended... There are just to many Raymond's! LOL
Been working on them for 12 years! Finding more links and stories all the time. I have over 11,000 family to include the women their husbands and children. It's a National Forest; not a Famil Tree!

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 Cemeteries
"Thanks! Did you find any of the other cemeteries?" I really dont know when I'll be able to go and look. Hubby works weird hours. But they are on my to-do list.

Yes the cemetery on Gregory Street does appear near Middleton Colony and Howe Station is a little north of it too. Looking at the Beta Mapper there is nothing mapped there on Find A grave yet so should be interesting to see what is out there.

The other one I would like to try to find is Nathaniel & Ruth Peabody which appears to be off Peabody street too. But like I said, when I just dont know yet. :)

RE: RE Cemeteries
The main reason I put the "this is not the same as" on Fuller North is because we dont have a location yet and dont want it merged into any of the other Fuller cemeteries.

Yes I had the AKA of Fuller Cemetery added to it mainly because that is what it was called in the Middleton VRs pre-1850.

I think Old Fuller should say something also. I'll think of something.

RE: Re Hannah Lummus Killam later of Middleton
Hannas memorial looks good. It was confusing with all those different spellings in the records. So I think its important to kind of mention them all.

"Also, please drop me an email if you have any further info on finding the actual locations of the remaining minor Middleton cemeteries? (Fuller North, Howe, Symonds, and Elliot)"

I definitely will. (I was holding off on adding those 4, but knew they were in the VRs, because I had no clue where they were.) If you havent noticed I went and updated all the notes/description on them. I was looking last night in some maps books I have and on ACME mapper in topo mode and found two cemeteries listed in Middleton only labeled with "Cem". One off of Gregory Street, which may be Howe, as that appears to be the Howe section of town. And a second one up north on Thomas Rd. Told hubby last night I want to go check out these areas and see what we can find.

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.
