Colcord Riverside Cemetery Maine
Hi Skip
There is a tiny stone that only says "Baby" on it next to Arthur Colcord and his wives. Would you happen to know anything about who this might be?

Hi Skip, First, thanks for all the work you do for Find-A-Grave. I write because I am hoping you can provide the sources for the Birth locations of both Charles and Barbara. We have been searching but have not been able to confirm the connection back to Scotland. Thanks! Also, we have not found a relationship to two of the children suggested (Robert and George). Three others, whose baptism records are in the PEI archives, are missing. Thanks!

Also, I am requesting a photo of the headstone. I checked the link you gave, however, after going through all photos on that site, I cannot locate a relevant headstone. The inscriptions are important. Thanks, so much! Susan, Alberta, Canada

Hi Mr. Colcord,

I am doing some records research that involves Ray Colcord, Jr. and his heirship and family. I was hoping you could confirm his DOD for me. I found a differing date than what is shown on his Memorial Page.

Find A Grave Memorial# 154365575

Could you direct me to proof that her parents - as posted on your entry - are:
Elizabeth is the daughter of William Partridge (1615-1654) and his wife, Ann (Spicer) Partridge (1618-1689).

I'm getting conflicting information.
She's my 8th g'grandmother. Thank you.

Hi Skip- Hope you can help with documentation for your Find a Grave death date of dec 31 ,1773 for Jonathan Colcord,sr. Do you have documentation for 1804 death of Jonathan Colcord,jr? I am helping the daughter of Robert Clay Colcord submit records for DAR membership. She and a previous DAR member were told they must show documentation on which Jonathan(sr or jr) provided the service to be members. The Edward Colcord book may no longer be used since it provided no documentation. Can you help? Sincerely
Georgia Matthias

RE: Mr. Nelson's Obituary
Thank you for your message. I like to hear from former students ... keeps Dad alive in some small way. I too am a former newspaper reporter: GA for the Hartford Courant and now-defunct Dallas Times Herald. And while we disagree on "who" and "whom" (Dad would agree with me, by the way, on the use of "whom" when the noun is an object of a verb or preposition), I very much appreciate the photos and correspondence. (I also am pretty sure I threw an unnecessary "that" into my last reply to you, and sent it without editing, so I apologize for ... well, that!) Very best regards -- Nancy

RE: Mr. Nelson's Obituary
Ah, so you disagree with my understanding of the use of "who" and "whom." More important -- you knew my Dad? Are you a former student? I don't live in Massachusetts currently, and it surprised me how much I reacted to the photos you contributed. Thank you so much. I had been doing considerable research on but hadn't been on in a while, and it was lovely to find the link.

John Calvin Stevens gravestone
I believe that you took a photograph of this famous architect's gravestone at the Deering Cemetery in Portland. Would it be possible to get a high resolution photo from you, for a publication on architects' gravesites that I am working on?

Many thanks.
