Bio and Links
I have an interest in Maine cemeteries and genealogy. I often walk through cemeteries up the coast in Maine and try to take photos of tombstones that are falling and breaking as it is sad to see. I am willing to share those photos as some descendants may never get a chance to see the actual tombstone. I take many photos of the same tombstone to include closeups and of course am reluctant to get rid of them. If I have taken the photo and you want copies of any other related to the monument and/or tombstone for your personal use just leave me a message so that I can email them to you.

Any photos that I have uploaded may be copied for your personal use only. None of the photos may be placed on another website, sold or bartered or used for commercial purposes.

If you want to use the photos for your personal use genealogy tree please feel free to do so but do not load them on as the tos there states that they can then do what they wish with the photo.

Almost all of the memorials I have entered are a result of "mowing rows" in larger cemeteries and photographing the whole smaller cemeteries.

I am way behind in posting the photos. If you want photos of a memorial I created you can use the request a photo option or you can leave me a message with the memorial names and numbers.

E. Maria Bateman
Thank you for entering the memorials for people buried at Highland Cemetery in Norwood, Massachusetts. Would you do me the great favor of checking your original notes for Memorial #134902901, E. MARIA BATEMAN, to verify her date of death as 1891? I have other documents (Census records, city directories) that seem to indicate that she was alive as late as 1924. She was born in 1860 in Dedham, Massachusetts and married FRANK W. BATEMAN in 1883. I appreciate your help and your continued work in documenting burials in Massachusetts and Maine!

Maria Barrett and Daniel Barrett

Maria (Faherty) Barrett is my 2nd great aunt. I was hoping you might remember where she is buried in Highland Cemetery in Norwood by any chance. I saw you added the memorials for her and her husband Daniel. I bet their kids are buried there too. That's a big cemetery. I'm hoping to go and take a picture.

Happy holidays from a Bristol Bartlett descendant

I wondered if you were the creator of the Job Smith Family Cemetery on FindaGrave?

I've been unable to located this cemetery on any maps. Do you have a specific location for it in Steuben?

Would you please consider transferring # 115307127.? Lydia Graves Smith (Frederick) Richards is my ancestor and I would like to maintain her memorial, link her family members together and provide info. Her husband you also have, David L. Richards , also in Needham Cem. #115307120. If you don't wish to transfer perhaps you can link her with her husband.

Thank you
