Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Beverly, Mass into a family that took grave tending very seriously. Many of my earliest memories are of being with my parents planting flowers and tending the graves of many past family members. In my elementary school years I would walk through the Central Cemetery morning and evening every day to get to school and back. The only thing that ever bothered me was seeing stones where the names were either gone or almost gone. It is the loss of a person all over again. I would like to play a small part in preserving some of these links to the past.

Hi Dick,

Would you like to merge our two memorial pages for George F. Jackson? The page I made is Memorial# 75849187. You could upload the pictures you took of his headstone and then the duplicate page could be removed. Another findagrave member brought this to my attention. Thanks,

RE: Your suggestion Russsell Kilian
If I remember correctly I had sent birth and death information beyond what was given and my message may have included my sources. He was married to a distant cousin.

Thanks for your kind offer!

McLaughlin graves

Thank you very much for going to check on my request for the McLaughlin graves at St. Francis. If you would like to email me the photo, my email address is It is truly sad how much of a state of disrepair the back hill of the cemetery is. The McLaughlin children never had any children of their own, so no one was left to care for their graves.
