Bio Photo November 3, 2015 ----

I finished my Gardner and surrounding towns database. It centers on Gardner but I included information on the early residents of Templeton, Winchendon, Westminster, and Ashburnham, Massachusetts garnered from the town histories, censuses, and vital records. It is uploaded to and has over 101,000 individuals.


If you do not wish to have a memorial online for your relative then let me know and I will delete it.

I have not cleaned the stones so you might come across a photo of one of your relative's stones and think, "what a mess". If you would like a better picture posted then I can go out and retake it no problem and do a little clearing away of dirt and weeds to boot. I just figured I could get all the photos done in a more timely manner and then make a better effort on the ones people actually are interested in seeing.

I have determined the genealogy of most of the original settlers (see my website below) of Gardner MA. Most of these people are buried in the Old Burial Ground while a few are in Green Bower and Crystal Lake Cemeteries. I have also traced the lineages of their progeny as far as the early 1900s and sometimes further.

I am not originally from this town and so I would be glad to transfer the memorials if you want them. As always, feel free to download any photo I've taken and I'd be glad to do some searching in my area if you can't do it yourself.

'Nuff said. Ed

RE: Andersen/Olson stone
thank you so much. I forget sitting here in 60 degrees that you are all experiencing a nasty winter. I thought that was what the lettering on the stone said. And I agree with your connections. Ella MAry, and Selma are sisters to my g-grandfather's second wife, Sigrid Andersen. Thanks for doing this. Reverie

Andersen/Olson stone
Hi, If you live near Gardner, would you please let me know what the writing on the stone for Anders (Andrew) Andersen, in Crystal Lake Cemetery says..the stone large print, is Andersen and Olson...but I don't know who the Olson is other than the daughter, Selma. the wife's maiden name was Saddquist (Sandquist) so I am confused. Thank you for searching and making the research of those who do not live close so much easier. I live in Virginia if I can help you in any way. Thanks, Reverie

Sure, unless he is a family relation to you than feel free to keep him. :) He is the brother to my 2nd great grandfather.
If you are not related feel free to transfer it - my #47433626, I don't mind that either. :)
Thanks for making those changes!
Have a Great day!

Thomas Miller 75848334
Hello Ed,

I attempted to delete the memorial for Sarah Marshfield Miller Foster, but since you created it, I had to fill out some information. We will see how that works.

In researching the memorials for Sarah I noticed we have a duplication with our Thomas Miller 75848334. Technically your/my memorial was created first like with his wife's.

The duplicate is: Lieut Thomas Miller
Created by: M Cooley

The memorial you created has a little more detail but she has the grave site and stone on hers.

This one will be more difficult to resolve since I do not maintain both memorials and this creator has no contact information. Do you have ideas as how you would like me to handle this?

I have added you to my friends. If you are so inclined I would be honored to be added to your friends.
