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!

photo taken for Arthur M Clemens,
I see you posted of photo of this gravestone. Please send me a message if you are a descendent or know a descendent of his parents or siblings. I have a Sunday School Cradle Roll certificate for this infant. I would like to try to reach family before I toss it.

Hi Diane - thanks you very much for the photo - greatly appreciated. I continue to try to find additional information about Harvey and his wife Yvonne in the papers, on-line but can't find anything. Your photo gives me some hope. - Dave

RE: thanks!
He's buried in North Dakota:

He and Amy divorced and he left Rhode Island in the 1880s and moved to Dakota Territory, where he remarried. My guess is Amy's gravestone says "wife of Albert D. Cordner" because it was purchased at the time of her daughter's death in 1864, when they were still married.
