"Close to my heart you'll always be - Genealogy is the connection to you and me!"|
Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care, it is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist, you died, and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beat a pulse, entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled, one hundred years ago, spreads out among the ones you left, who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew, that someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. (Author Unknown)
BTW for those of you sending all the corrections regarding only one name in the first block of records for searching ease, even when the individual has 3 or 4 names, as in good Catholics who always have Marie or Joseph in their names (which is usually the first name) - be careful what you ask for - I'm working on the corrections, however if you search on Marie or Joseph now you get over 2,500 of my names alone. Good luck finding the individual you are looking for, especially if it's Marie and you don't know how many times she married. I find those of you insistent on this interesting - especially as Find A Grave refuses to fix my husband's relative who has no first name - his name is Spotted Tail and because he's famous his record is handled by management - they have Spotted for his first name and Tail for his last name. Not CORRECT, but what the heck, it fits in the box.

|David Minton||Stone search|
I am looking for the gravestone of Lawrence Long.
Born about 1901 died 12/18/1954
Believe burial at St Francis Cemetery, Phoenix AA. Might be a VA stone, maybe.

After researching on Ancestry, the info you emailed me on this memorial is correct. I corrected the names of Alice's parents. The funeral home obit has been deleted from their website, and the obit published in the Boston Globe doesn't state her parents' names.
Hi Suki: I just noticed that you added a flower to my father's FindAGrave memorial. I really appreciate that. Bob

|Scott Willis||William T.Willis|
Thank you for responding,as well as the story and pictures...Oh how in the story as well as the older picture u cant deny that he's not my Father,how i look just like him and im the same way to this day the comic..without leaving my # on public forum how could we communicate on a more private level?
|Scott Willis||William T. Willis|

|Warren Cushing||RE: Henri Parent 1869-1928|
Thank you for clarifying that a bit more. I see what I did wrong now.
My Georgiana Cushing was the daughter of Frank Cushing and Anna Martelle. She married Harold Frank Parent on 14 Oct 1925 in Burlington VT.
Name Harold Frank Parent
Event Type Marriage
Event Date 14 Oct 1925
Event Place Burlington, Vermont, United States
Spouse's Name Georgianna Helen Cushing
Spouse's Gender Female
Spouse's Father's Name Frank Cushing
Spouse's Mother's Name Anna Martelle
I also did find the marriage for your Henri Parent and Georgina Martel in the Maine Marriage Index.
Name Henri Parent
Event Type Marriage
Residence Place Biddeford, Me
Event Date 24 Jan 1912
Event Place Maine, United States
Spouse's Name Georgina Martel
Spouse's Residence Place Biddeford, Me
Henri Parent's birthdate of 1869 seemed somewhat suspicious when compared to Georgina Martel's 1890 birth. That's what threw me off course. That entry was just a little bit too close to call, but I think you are correct with what you have posted.
Hi Suki again:
I was just trying to match up the names in Rose's obit with the names you have listed and discovered that the obit says she is survived by four sisters . After looking at the original copy of the obit that I have I discovered that I left out the name "Mrs. Emma Pinard" between Mrs. Exilia Romeo and Mrs. George Gagnon's name. To make it correct you may want to insert it in her obit. Sorry for the mistake. That is a nice picture of Rose at the checkout counter in the store. I remember that cash register, the scales, and that table. Do you have any other pictures inside the store? Bob

Hi Suki: Thank you for allowing the edits for birth and death locations for Rose.
Did you know Carlos very well? Words can't express how good he was to me. I worked for him from 1952 until the summer after I graduated from college in 1960. My father worked for Saco Lowell and moved to Greenville, SC in 1958 with them when they moved south and I kept living in our home on Pool Road. In the spring, summer and fall during high school I worked for him taking care of the grounds of many of the estates he took care of. I had no way of getting to work except on his bus which he let me ride for nothing. During college I worked in their store starting early and stayed late in the evening, so he provided me with one of his old pick up trucks. It was working for him and learning from him that eventually led to the three business I owned later in life. He was sooo good to me. Rose was also OK. If you knew her at all you know she could have her bad moods and be difficult but we understood and respected each other.
One of my biggest regrets I have is that I did not know he had died until about two weeks after he passed and I missed his funeral. I think of him often.
I have unsuccessfully tried to find out by writing to the PUC if the bus line ceased to operate before he died. I know he auctioned off the store in January, 1966 a year and a half before he died but I can't find out anything about the bus line or his school bus contract. I know the bus line by the early 60's was nothing like it was in the early to mid 50's as was the case with most public transportation with a much shorter schedule and no service on Sunday. But I would like to find someone who can tell me about it. I have even tried to locate his former drivers but they are all gone now.
Here is the Biddeford Journal obituary for Rose and Carlos:

This doesn't tell much about him. I have maintenance of his Find A Grave memorial and should write a good biography for him. Bob

I understand your wanting to keep Rose's memorial. If I edit her birth and death locations will you approve it?
I have a copy of her obit and will send it if you don't have it. Bob
