trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.|
Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, and Washington State's Skagit County. I've been known to wander off to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine given the opportunity.
Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find.
Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.
I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown or memorials whose placement in a cemetery is supposition (aka plops).
I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.
My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed... Click here to see the memorials I've added in the past few 7 days.

Dear Lady Goshen, I am trying to restore a baby grave of my aunt in the Slate Hill Cemetary, Hickok Plot that you photographed in 2008. Would you be willing to sell a copy of this photograph that I could enhance as 9 years later, the inscription is no longer visible. Thank you so much for the work you do. The photograph identifier is dated 5/26/2008, memorial of Annie Wood Franchot Hickok Find a grave Memorial #27102307

Sorry I have done extensive research but cannot find proof of the mother of Sarah Currier d 1821. Please read my contributor's page and send me your vital record or book entry research where you got this from.

|Tristram Coffin||Notification of duplicate|
Thanks for letting me know about duplicate listing for George Wing Sisson profile #81992826, created 8 months after original profile #69001951, which I created.
Generally, if a duplicate is located for a profile I've created, I'll pass ownership to the manager of the alternate profile so they have the freedom to integrate and update data and assets as they see appropriate. But only if doing so results in a better experience for users.
In this case however, the more recent profile doesn't include either of the images contained in the original profile, and the new profile owner's account is disabled. Transferring ownership in this instance makes no sense.

I must have made that edit through the edit tab. I don't remember it but I wonder if it was a findagrave generated link. I have an Abigail Smith who is constantly linked with anyone who has an Abigail Smith in their family no matter when she was born or who she married. To top it off, my Abigail is one of those MIA people who we are FINALLY connecting to a family that is likely to be the right one through research, not just put in a family because she's named Abigail Smith.

Thanks for catching my duplicate! I've deleted my memorial.
|Sky at email@example.com||Jane Cilley Tucker|
Additional Information on her was found here: http://www.cilley.net/thecilleypages/cilley-en-o/p4280.htm,
- J. P. Cilley. The Cilley Family. Augusta, ME: n.pub., 1878.
- John R. Eastman. History of the Town of Andover, New Hampshire, 1751-1906, Part II. Concord, N. H: Rumford Printing Company, 1910.
Note that the death date at the above site says "1856" but her stone says "1857".
FYI: My great aunt was also named "Jane" but sometimes called "Jennie."
Thank you for all of your hard work!
