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 do estimated 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, Fold3.com, Ancestry.com, NARA, other on-line sources, personal library, obituaries, newspaper items, etc.

|SleepingDog||Henry M. Burt|
Thank you for letting me know that Henry was buried in Bridge Street Cemetery. The Burts are my husbands family members. (A descendant of Henry and Eulalia Burt,)
I was about to move Henry to the cemetery when I discovered that there are three cemeteries by that name---and none of them said that they were in Springfield. So I´m not sure which one to put him in.
Could you please let me know which one of those cemeteries is the right one???
Again---thanks so much!!!
|Beals||RE: Robert Starkwather info|
Thank you. My pleasure. I inherited the Starkweather Family History book "Robert Starkweather and his Descendants", nice to use it in the memorials.

Just wanted to thank you for the time and info that you gave for these memorials. I also wanted to let you know that I have added photos in case you would like to take a look.

Would you be willing to transfer Manley Milton Mowry and Lilla Josephine Mowry to me? My father, brother and sister and our families are the only descendants. If you were able to photograph the gravestones of their daughters, Mary Elizabeth Mowry (1879-1965) and Lucy White Mowry Baird and Lucy's husband, Everett Jamieson Baird, we would appreciate it.

Thanks for your messages. I appreciate it. I have Corbin myself, but if you want to cite it, it could help others.

|Judith Lee Howard Shea||Erastus Hopkins' House|
Dear Dobson Fly,
Thank you SO MUCH for including Erastus Hopkins' house, now demolished, on his Find-a-Grave page. I was so curious! I am reading the book "Letters From Erastus" by Anne D. Emerson, which I discovered doing my investigations. I recommend it! It was just published last year.
