Robert Kimball
Kimball Family Lot Glocester
Hi! I noticed you provided the picture for the Kimball Family Lot #44 in RI...

I have been to the site and see no sign nor any marker so I am curious if those were stock photos, if the GPS location for the site is incorrect or (sadly) if someone has removed/vandalized/obscured the entire site. Daniel Kimball and Lydia Kimball are my 6th great grandparents so any help would be appreciated...

If these were indeed actual photos, I will start by contacting the local police to realize that a crime has occurred by disrupting them but I don't want to go that route if there is a better explanation for the "disappearence"

Thanks again for any insight!

Many thanks for transferring the memorial for Mary; I've visited her grave several times. I've been earnestly trying to sort out the family members and burial locations for members of her family, as there has been dispute as to where her parents and grandparents are actually buried, despite the presence of grave markers. I've attempted to present the facts in the various memorials. Cheers...

Find-A-Grave Memorial 31434944
Hi Matthew! Hope you are well. I have sent several edits to you on Cemetery SC009. I have assembled compelling evidence (2 records and the rest by ruling out every other possibility) that this is Lydia Slack, daughter of Benjamin Slack and Hannah Harris, his first wife being Phebe Fenner.

She was the widow of an unknown Berry (most of that family left Scituate after the War to NY and PA etc, and she remarried to Samuel Salisbury.
Seh and Samuel ar listed simply as S S and S L

Still trying to track down the ancestry of Elihu Cole. His daughter married their son.

Hope you are able to get to these edits in due time.

Thanks for all your photos and adds of these cemeteries.

Cemetery Descriptions
Hello again Sir. I respectfully have another request.

I noticed the original transcriber's descriptions are not available in the descriptions area of the RI cemeteries you added here. These are extremely helpful in that they list the best estimated number of actual burials in a lot whether there is a gravestone or not, inscription or not, and other critical historical information dating back to the late 1890s early 1900s when the State originally started documenting the cemeteries.

Would you be able to add those?

Specifically the ones I recently was trying to work on and did not find that info were in Warwick WK070 WK071 and today, I found out that the so-called "Lincoln Lot" WK031 has about 28 burials and there are 6 fieldstones.

WK031 is actually the Pardon Baker Family Burial Ground designated by him in 1789. He was a Revolutionary War Veteran and this info was known to the Army in 2007 before your visit there via a study they made on the Hazardous Waste on their grounds.

The fieldstones are undoubtedly the Bakers, as it was not uncommon back then to not mark the stones, especially if the family were Quakers.

Edits for Walker Kelley Lot Coventry
Hi Matthew!

I just realized when updating some of the information on the Mathewson family in this lot I had already sent several of the edits a while ago and they are still in your pending tab.

Also when I send them I usually try to provide the backup proofs information via "other suggestions" to make it easier for you to just go ahead and click the "accept" button on your pending edits tab when you are satisfied with review of these proofs.

I hope all is well with you and you are able to get to these in due time.

Thank you

I just want to thank you for your work with Find A Grave. I only have seen perhaps one of your entries, that of actor Kevin Coughlin. I saw him on a tv show and looked him up and was very sad to find out he died when I was only a young boy in 1976.

I couldn't find out details of his passing but you provided more than any others I had read. I wonder if you could tell me where you found out about the accident that injured him? I was just wondering if it was a hit and run or if authorities ever arrested anyone.

Thank you again, I can see you have contributed much to this site.

RE: Warren RI cemetery
The cemetery is in desperate need of weed whacking. My son climbed through the thorns to take a couple of photos of graves.
The neighbor (it is in the front corner of her yard)is fine with anyone entering the cemetery to clean it up!

I see you have taken a photo of the Brown lot Cemetery in Warren. I was wondering if you could tell me where it is located. We could never find it. (coordinates are fine too. I have a GPS) Sue
