Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Northeastern Ohio, but I have lived in Mass. many years. I have been doing genealogy since 1961. It is a wonderful hobby and it pleases me if I am able to help someone find family or friends they have been searching for.

My special interest is in finding and making Memorials for Civil War Veterans. Much of the information for Beverly's (MA) Central Cemetery has been provided by Dan Driscoll, friend and Volunteer Genealogist at Beverly City Hall.
Beverly Sexton has been of great help to me in the Bedford-Macedonia Cemeteries, Ohio.

Please notify me of any additions or corrections. I'll be happy to oblige.
One thing- Photos of people that I have posted are meant to be enjoyed. I would appreciate it if you would avoid posting them to other internet sites.

It is so good to connect with you!

Hello Mary Helen,

Kathryn was my Grandmother. I remember her speaking of a Mary Helen. Was that you?

RE: Alexander Family Line
Hi MaryHelen,
I hope you received the letter of thanks I sent to you in regards the book you and your husband authored on the Alexander family. I am still delving through the book and am putting pieces together.
Again, many thanks for sharing,

Hello and thank you for your contributions to Findagrave.

While doing research, I came across a map of Osnaburg that you had posted. I was wondering if you would be willing to share the original with me?
I appreciate your time and consideration.

LaFontaine Family
Ms. Balboni, first please accept my sincere thanks for all the postings you have done on FindAGrave. They are invaluable for those of us researching families.

I would like to know if you are related to the Adelard LaFontaine family (St. Joseph Cemetery, Fitchburg, MA)? If so, I would love to ask you a few questions as I have hit a brick wall on my LaFontaine connection in Pawtucket, RI. I THINK his father was Adelard but I have not been able to prove it. I am searching for William LaFontaine who married Lurena ("Rena") Cecelia Harvey (daughter of Maxime), probably about 1921 - this couple may have divorced by 1927-8 - they had one surviving daughter. "Rena" married Joseph S. "Herve" Soly by 1928. Most records indicate that William, son of Adelard, did not marry but I believe he may have for a short period (unfortunately, I am unable to get to divorce records for this time period in RI).

If you would like to contact me directly, my email is

Thank you!

Alexander Family Line
38916208 In the Alexander Line you make mention of an Alexander family bible. Are you in possession of that bible? If not, would you happen to know where this information came from. I saw on the Fulton Co cemetery site that Dr J Frank Alexander had the bible at one time. I would love to have a scanned copy of it for my ancestral records. Thanks for any tips you can offer. Teresa

I am looking for FREDERICK B BAKER, SR, husband of Arlene E. Gates Baker, # 135548312, father of # 142959240. And HILDA LOHNES, she was the caregiver for Annie Dean Baker, # 142959291. If you could help me in knowing if they are buried with the family, would be of much help. Even trying to find an obituary would be helpful. Thank you so much.
