Antti Jarvela 71775558
Hi Andrew, I sent you an edit for Antti Jarvela but his middle name is actually Jakob which I found on his will online. Gustaanpoika is actually his patronymic name (meaning his father's name was Gust). I don't know how you want to handle it but you already have a note that he is the son of Gust so you don't really need that name there. I would add Jakob and remove the patronymic name but that is just a suggestion. Thank you for all you do on Findagrave. Janine

Riverside Cem. Lot 6

Dear Andrew, I see where you read the tombstone in Lot 6, Riverside Cemetery for Estia Bryant, daughter of William & Margaret Ann (Kimball) Bryant, age 11 months, 11 days.

On the Plot map, there is a Kimball listed in Lot 6. Did you see any signs of another grave in that Lot 6?? I am searching for a grave for my GGG grandmother Nancy Edgecomb Kimball Blake. Estia would be a grand daughter to Nancy Blake.

In Lot 8, Andrew P Kimball, Jane P Kimball (daughter), John Blake. Both Andrew and John are husbands of Nancy Kimball Blake. We cannot find a record of her death or burial. Why would she not be buried in Riverside with 2 husbands and a daughter buried there?? Another mystery.

Owls Head Cemeteries
Hi Andrew,

When they merged the Hall Cemetery with the McPhail-Hix we discovered about 6 duplicate memorials. Find A Grave merged three of them that you had originally created with the duplicate. There is one more for Evie B. Wester Hall, Memorial#71729958, created by you on 06/21/2011. The duplicate, Memorial# 82808531, created 01/01/2012 by Sharon Pulkkinen, was in the "wrong" cemetery, the old "Hall" cemetery, a/k/a, Head of the Bay Cemetery. However, the duplicate memorial seems to be more complete with it's information.

How should this duplicate be handled? You have more experience than I do at this.

Thank you.

Head of the Bay Cemetery
Hi Andrew,

Been working lately in the Head of the Bay cemetery in Owls Head, a/k/a Hall. We've cleaned repaired many of the stones and all but a couple in front cemetery have been righted. I have been asked to "adopt" both the Head of the Bay Cemetery, listed on Find A Grave as "Head of Bay Cemetery: and the MacPhale Cemetery in the back, listed has "Hall" and "McPhail-Hix" cemetery on Find A Grave.

I am in the process of trying to identify all of the veterans in both cemeteries. Whereas you seem to have a created a number of the memorials, if you have any information regarding veterans buried in either cemetery I would appreciate it. I plan to place markers and flags.

Currently on Find A Grave there is the Head of Bay Cemetery, Hall Cemetery and McPhail-Hix Cemetery. I have contacted Find A Grave to have the Hall and McPhail-Hix Cemeteries combined and duplicates eliminated. Then have the name changed to MacPhail Cemetery a/k/a Hix, and have the Head of Bay Cemetery changed to Hall Cemetery, a/k/a Head Of The Bay Cemetery.

Thanks for your help.

Alvah Waterman
The base for Alvah's stone was found and his stone has been repaired and placed onto the base. In our survey his stone is #2.

The Long children are buried just to the right of their parents (as you face the parents' stones). There is a field stone marking the grave, but it has been grown over by a choke cherry tree which will shortly be removed by the Rockland Cemetery Association. In our survey of the cemetery, the grave is #215.

Martin Marsh and his wife Ruth have a huge Thomaston Marble stone which we have up-righted and put into a new base. On the survey, their stone is #134.

RE: Infant Farris #62983982
I'll have to see if I still have the file as I think I deleted it as I was done with Plaisted photos. All you had to do was change the cemetery, and that way you don't have to delete you memorials. Hope it all helps with the family.

Infant Farris #62983982
I have sent a photo of the gravestone you requested. The problem is that this gravestone was in Plaisted Cemetery, not Oak Grove Cemetery as you have listed. This cemetery is where his mother is located and the stone is in the same row as Harriet Farris and Hartwell Farris.
