    Would you please add this photo to Find A Grave if you took it, so it can be used as a source. The photo is so much better than the one currently posted.

    Thanks much!!

    • I am adding the photos of my family to find-a-grave, a cemetery at a time. I am currently working on Millwood Cemetery in Sutton, New Hampshire. I will be posting the old Cemetery over the next few weeks. You can site my blog as a source and or you can site June Butka, private collection photo. I will put it on Find A grave in the next week. Hopefully later today.
