Bio Photo Every marker has a story to tell; sometimes I can be its voice

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt.

I don't estimate birth years. The relatives of the dearly departed not only could get the date of death wrong on the monument but the age at death. Too many people take anything they find on the Internet as gospel, and I will not contribute to that bad habit.

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship. I will not transfer out of guidelines. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. Use the edit system. Too many people have requested out-of-guidelines transfers and then never added so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.

I WILL NOT link to a "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.

If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.

My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.

Sources for additional memorial information include:
Suggest A Correction, NEHGS,,, NARA, other on-line sources, personal library, obituaries, newspaper items, etc.

Presenter of Betty Allen Chapter DAR and Friends of Lilly Library sponsored "Celestial Residents Walking Tours": Bridge Street Cemetery (Northampton), Park Street Cemetery (Florence), Spring Grove Cemetery (Florence), West Farms Cemetery (Florence) and a virtual tour of "The Celestial Residents of Chesterfield".

The house…
I see you just added a fascinating house to Noah Parsons (son of Noah and Mindwell) Bridge Street Find-a-Grave memorial. Could you say a little more about what connection this house has to Noah Parsons?? Perhaps I should assume that he lived in it? Or Noah and Mindwell? I'd like to know!

Hello, again!
I added a photo of Horace H. Packard to his memorial and added links to his parents. In the "small world" category, Horace's grandson was the husband of Carrie McCullough, my grandfather's younger sister.

RE: Eunice Lyman #28102032
I don't have another source for her age at death. I don't expect you to deviate from your policy because Eunice died at age 13. Thank you for considering the situation.
