      Dave Bixby's Cemetery Transcription Project

      I first started this record in 1993 when, in a casual conversation, I was told that nobody knew who was buried in any of the cemeteries in the town of Providence except for the large cemetery in Barkersville which is still used. It seems the other cemeteries are all abandoned and unused, and I could find no records of who might be buried in any of them. Nobody even knew where they all were!

      So since I do videotaping for a hobby I decided to videotape the cemeteries in town and enter the names in an old computer which a friend had given me in 1991. (You can guess how slow this is!) I'd print out the information and give it to the town clerk or historian. My guess was that I'd spend a couple weeks on it. Thirteen cemeteries and nearly a thousand names later I finished Providence! That's not as bad as it seems, as three of the cemeteries only had a single stone each.

      My son is buried in Foster Hill Cemetery in Galway. I also knew that the Sowle and Trevett Families are buried in other towns. So since I had done Providence, "maybe I'll just do a few of the nearby cemeteries - just for a couple more weeks.". That was nearly 5 years ago.

      The work continues. Hopefully I can also extend my work in Greenfield. I've been asked "when do you plan to stop?" I guess that as long as there's one more cemetery around the bend of the road I'll keep going.

      I also videotape the monthly meetings of the Adirondack Fiddlers Club. One day one of the ladies of the Fiddlers called my home to ask a question about the next meeting. My wife took the call as I was out videotaping. The voice on the phone asked "Is Dave there?" My wife answered "No, he's in the cemetery". The voice said "Oh! I'm sorry to hear that." An
