Bio and Links
I have an interest in Maine cemeteries and genealogy. I often walk through cemeteries up the coast in Maine and try to take photos of tombstones that are falling and breaking as it is sad to see. I am willing to share those photos as some descendants may never get a chance to see the actual tombstone. I take many photos of the same tombstone to include closeups and of course am reluctant to get rid of them. If I have taken the photo and you want copies of any other related to the monument and/or tombstone for your personal use just leave me a message so that I can email them to you.

Any photos that I have uploaded may be copied for your personal use only. None of the photos may be placed on another website, sold or bartered or used for commercial purposes.

If you want to use the photos for your personal use genealogy tree please feel free to do so but do not load them on as the tos there states that they can then do what they wish with the photo.

Almost all of the memorials I have entered are a result of "mowing rows" in larger cemeteries and photographing the whole smaller cemeteries.

I am way behind in posting the photos. If you want photos of a memorial I created you can use the request a photo option or you can leave me a message with the memorial names and numbers.

Would you consider transferring little Alice Pendleton's memorial to me? She was my grandfather's (Clyde Colon Pendleton's) little sister. Thanks for your time.

Margaret McNeil Sheehan
I have provided a record of Patrick & Margaret Sheehan from their births and marriage in Canada to their migration to NH in 1899, residence at Sumner, Oxford, Maine un 1905, at Canton, Oxford, Maine in 1910, relocation to Norwood, Norfolk, MA where both died and were buried at Highland Cemetery in Norwood, MA, where their youngest son Ernest Sheehan was later buried.

The death certificate of Patrick reports him as born in Canada, son of William Sheehan & Margaret Cody, the father was buried at Grande-Riviere, QC, Canada, where Patrick married Margaret.

I have personal knowledge of the couple all my life, Patrick Sheehan was a cousin of both of my parents, Margaret McNeil was known to my maternal grandfather as "Aunt Maggie", being a sister to his mother, Anna McNeill DuVal.

I see you have declined to transfer to me or to edit the memorial.

I would not have requested a transfer or an edit were the evidence less than accurate about my relationship to this particular person.

Hi there..I was wondering if, when you have time, you could please tell me a bit about the above cemetery? There are no photos on the cemetery page or a description or location. Many of my relatives are buried there so I went on line to try to find some history on it. I have been unable to find any information. Perhaps just looking in the wrong place. Anyway thank you in advance for your time.Sincerely, Wendy
