Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in central Massachusetts with my wife Barbara. Formerly the Director of Operations at a Worcester Mass. facility, I am now retired, leaving me much more time for prowling through graveyards!
I particularly like discovering and photographing old gravestones, and consider myself very fortunate to be living in New England where so many of the early settlers are buried. I also try to photograph as many graves of veterans I come across, from those who fought in the Revolutionary War through the present time.

My objectives are two-fold:

1.When I post photos of their graves on Find A Grave, along with as much bio information as I can gather about them, I feel that I am honoring their lives, in some small way.
2. I want to capture as many of these old stones on disk before acid rain, vandalism, snowplows, and whatever obliterates them forever!
(Being a graveyard junkie, however, I am apt to take a picture of any interesting grave that catches my eye...regardless of the era)!

about Martha!
Thanks Jim for the transfer of Martha. Now I can start to link the family to Paul and martha I forgot to thank you for the transfer of Paul. I have a lot of photo requests for the Notre Dame cemetery in Worcester all relatives of one family or another but I guess there is to much snow yet to have them photoed.

RE: Kelley memorials #8288015,8288009 and 8288013
I am sincerely sorry for not asking nicely. My bad! This situation has been very time consuming to clean up and I had sent several messages to Memorial Managers yesterday to try and straighten out the mess and I didn't even finish my message to you before I hit sorry! I didn't expect that you would transfer the Memorials to me, so I do sincerely thank you.

Kelley memorials #8288015,8288009 and 8288013
Hi Jim,

I am working on my Kelley family line and you manage some memorials for my Kelley ancestors. I recently discovered that my 3x Great Grandfather's Memorial (Joel Kelley #77409415) had some discrepancies and discovered that his Memorial should in fact be his father's, Joel Kelley Sr. I messaged the Memorial manager about this issue and the Memorial was transferred to me to straighten out. So, now Memorial #77409415 is Joel Kelley Sr's, rather than Joel Jr. This now leads me to you....

The Memorial's that you manage for my Kelley family members now need to be edited or transferred to me to edit as they are now linked to the wrong person. It is kind of a mess....

RE: Solomon Bolster
Are you saying there is another Solomon Bolster at this cemetery with the dates you cite? The marker states "Mr Solomon Bolster died November 2 1806 in the 18 year of his age". This information is further supported by Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988 which states "Bolster, Solomon, s. Capt. Isaac and Mary, Nov. 2, 1806,in 18th year." I will make a new memorial for this Solomon Bolster which corresponds with the memorial and vital records. You can see by the marker as well as the vital records that 4 children of Isaac and Mary Bolster died in Aug. 1775. However, Solomon is not one of those. You indicate you are a descendant of the Bolsters? So am I. Maybe we could compare our research. If you're interested, please private message me.
