This was a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

My tree was done generations ago, thanks to my ancestors. Now my time is spent on documenting cemeteries, research, linking memorials, reuniting families, and connecting the dots.
My virtual flowers now represent edits.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. BUT, request through the system, not here, not email! Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. If you are rude, I will ignore you.

** I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates. PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Most likely, they have already been added.

** PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.' I adhered to the rules, please do the same. I will not link to an unknown burial.

** If your pictures are crooked, of poor quality, out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, shadowed, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will add my photo on the memorial. I apologize, I do not intend to offend. It is not out of disrespect for the other photographer, it is out of respect for the deceased and the family who might appreciate a good photo of the stone. Please have the gumption and consideration to post only decent, well thought out photos.

**USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, or general inquiries for ANY memorial, it gives me easy access to the memorial in question, I have entered thousands. I will Ignore and delete suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left here or in email.

RE: Cushing monument
I found the photo of the Cushing Monument on another website, but there was no one to give credit for the photo OR information as to where it was located.
On the caption, I believe I said that it was NOT a headstone. It appears to be some kind of monument to the Cushings as early Mass. settlers. I looked in the cemetery but couldn't find it there. It might be located in a park or something, I don't know.
If you or anyone else can find and share the location of the monument, it would be helpful.

Matthew Cushing memorial site
Hi Anne: the Hingham cemetery folks assure me that the Cushing obelisk shown with his record is not there - I've also looked there and elsewhere in Hingham, and in Scituate, which has a Cushing plot (Justice William C. is interred there).

I am new to this site, and do not know what it means that you are the keeper of his record, but I wonder if you have any leads?

Thanks and regards, Tom Cushing

Can you provide more details about your reference to "Richardson with sources." I am too new to this to understand your reference. Thank you.

Warm Greetings Anne :) James' mother was Delphine. Delphine was married to my cousin, Homer Henke. It was a second marriage for both Homer and Delphine. Are you related? I would love pictures. Blessings Carolyn in Kansas City :) Homer's memorial page is, Find A Grave Memorial# 102906308. James is mentioned in Homer's obit.
