Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in family history (mine and any one else's) for as long as I can remember but actively started researching my husband's ancestors in Maine in the early 1990's. We moved to Maine not knowing that many of his family lines originated here. My specific interests are the Mitchells, mainly the Mitchells of Georgetown/Bath and Leeds. My wish is that I will solve the mystery of who were the parents of Thomas and Joseph Mitchell of Leeds? I have my own ideas. Most of what is published has been proven wrong. Other family names include Lemont, Jacobs, Gilbert, Getchell. I used to do volunteer look-ups for people living away from this area but then life got too busy. Makes you feel like Santa Claus!

I'm not connected to most of the memorials I have created. I will transfer out of Find a Grave guidelines unless it is my own family or a family I am actively researching. Please follow Find a Grave rules/guidelines concerning photos posted, flowers added etc. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you have about a memorial. I love to work with other researchers. If you send an edit please use the edit tab.

Frederick Small #120950502
Hello Christine,

My husband and I have been documenting Civil War veterans in Edson Cemetery, Lowell, MA. We photographed a monument for one of your pages, Frederick Small # 120950502. Research shows that Frederick was a sergeant in the 15th Independent Battery of the Mass Light Artillery. He was the son of John Small and Betsy Leach and husband of Lizzie M. Ahern, who is named as the recipient of his widow's pension. I have put in an edit for his middle initial which is "J" on his death certificate as well as on his monument.

I, too, am researching my Maine genealogy!!

RE: Maguire graves
Hi Christine! Thanks for your note. I'm not related to the Maguires. I will happily transfer any memorials to you that you require. My only link is County Louth. I have Coulter and Hamilton ancestors from the county. I've visited Ireland only once, but would love to go back to do more research. Please let me know if I can help you. Cheers!

Posted a marker photo for Edgar and wife Emma from Evergreen in Oakland.

There is also a couple of other "Smith" markers right next to theirs.

Allen memorials
Hi, Chris! I updated all dates of death (month/year) for all the Allen memorials I created in Holy Name Cemetery. Hope this makes things easier for you if you are doing research. If you want any transfers just let me know. I'm not one of those anal idiots who won't transfer out of guidelines. LOL Ron

Re: McHugh in Norwood, MA
I have posted the photos that I took for the John L. McHugh memorial. I have thousands of photos to post, it just takes so much longer to post them for each memorial once I create the memorial. Closer inspection shows the initial should be J. not L. I have corrected it. Thanks for the correction.
