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.

Bella Wyman - Hepzibah Drinkwater
Hi again...after reading your bio I thought I would ask about the above 2 people. I have been unable to find anything on them or where they may be buried but since you do so much with the Maine Cemeteries I thought I should just ask in case you ever come across them. Per the Wyman website Bela is buried in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery but again no proof. And again..Thank you in advance ..Sincerely, Wendy

Greenwood Cemetery
Hi...Was wondering about some listings in Greenwood Cemetery that you created. Loving Tracy who is Lovina Emory Guptill Tracy (my ancestor) and her husband Abner Tracy. I found a death record for Lovina 127274932 but have not found any for Abner 127274933. I was wondering if you have any information on him? Thank you in advance for your time and please feel free to contact me by email. Sincerely, Wendy

Thornton graves in Suffolk County, MA
Hi, I came across your listing for William, Sarah and Lillian Thornton from Mt. Benedict cemetery in West Roxbury, MA and I added photos from when I was out there in person.

William and Sarah were my great-great grandparents. I was hoping you would be willing to transfer these three entries to me. As part of my genealogy projects, I am trying to locate and document family-related graves so I have been logging and photographing the Thornton family graves here in MA for the past month or so.

112791877 William
112791896 Sarah
112791901 Lillian

Best regards,

Hey Folks,
Thanks for the GPS location for the private family cemetery on 170 Wyman Road. My wife's families' ancestors. We visited 30 Aug 2015. We do have questions about your interest in this site and in more the information on property or of residents/relatives. We ALSO telephoned the property owners (since 1961) the next day to alert them of our unannounced visit; they were very gracious. Please contact us! mockswede AT GEE mail DOT com. Thanks.

Memorial 122650959
Hello, Thank you for all the work you've done on this site.
Regarding the above memorial, it is for one of my ancestors in Massachusetts, but I am curious how you came by this information as you seem focused in Maine. There are children missing from this record, as Martha and Arthur had 7 children, not just four.
Would love to hear from you, as I''m visiting relatives in MA this weekend and we're talking about our ancestry.

Sincerely, Lauren
