Bio and Links
I am retired and loving it! Originally from S.TX, but have lived in Nev, Idaho, Montana, Ca., and for the last 23 years ,in SE Connecticut.I have a BA in History and Sociology, so worked in the casino industry for nearly 40 years.My love has always been History and I really love doing research . My ancestors were "all American"...Irish- Roumanian Jewish on my Mom's side, and Irish- Hispanic- Native American on Dad's side.
When I go to photograph a request, I will usually take more photos of the cemetery, if seemingly related graves haven't already been posted. Just ask for the management to be transferred!

RE: River Bend/Westerly
Hi Diane. There is absolutely no rush. I really appeciate your effort. I am interested in any of the Bisset and family graves in Westerly, which is where my associated family lived and prospered after emigrating from Scotland. :-)

RE: Kibbe- San Fernando #3
I will never understand why they charge. They are the only cemetery in town, that I know of, that charges. I am not from SA but I hsve recommended certain cemeteries because of the beauty and maintenance so for all they know we could bring them business. If they have customers I back off and wait until I am the only one needing help..... I need CT but in New Haven.

No problem, and thank you for letting me know! I understand completely as my cemetery hoping has been suspended since winter started!

RE: First Hopkinton
Thank you so much for this information Diane. I am so glad that you responded since I may have spent hours searching for a stone that didn't exist. I don't think I will need a picture of the location, but it was very kind of you to offer. That is a wonderful idea to place a stone at her grave. Thank you again for all of your help. Keith

RE: First Hopkinton
Hello Diane, Thank you for your reply. I didn't know that is what "section Z" referred to. But if there is no head stone marker, then how does Find a Grave know that Mary Ann North Denham and Beatrice Denham are in this cemetery? They even have the correct birth date and death date. Are there other records specifying who is buried in this cemetery? Thank you so very much for your response and your help!
