Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found our daughter's memorial here, Kristi CHAGNON, and was surprised, and grateful, that someone took the time to do that. If you'd like to stop by and visit with Kristi, just use this link. She is a wonderful soul. I'm certain she is still here with us.

Now I find strolls through quiet cemeteries to be relaxing -- while hopefully being helpful to someone researching their family. I was never awkward wandering cemeteries, but now I do it with more purpose. It does bring me to a place of peace. It has also taught me a lot of those who have been here ahead of us. I try to keep my camera handy and research names that seem to have no connections so their memorials might be connected here.

My father was from Canada and my mom from Salem, Mass. (She enjoyed sharing that she went sledding on Gallow's Hill.) Her family was from Ireland. I have lived in New England nearly all of my life and have found neighbors to be friends that I'm able to visit -- even after moving to another community.

I enjoy helping folks to connect with their past. I am thrilled when I get a note of "I wondered where he/she was" or "I didn't know about him/her." So please share with me any thoughts you have.

Also, it is much easier making corrections if you use the appropriate tab on a memorial. I would appreciate if you can do that.

Be safe.

Pillsbury in Riverside Cemetery
Thank you for your note on the PILLSBURY graves at Riverside Cemetery. I have updated all of my entries with links and additional information found in original vital records at FamilySearch and Ancestry. I also verified the dates where our entries were different. Please let me know if you have any questions. Otherwise, I believe you may delete the duplicates. I updated a total of 8 graves: Albert Enoch Pillsbury, Antoinette A. Pillsbury, Elizabeth (Dinsmoor) Pillsbury, Elizabeth (Mooney) Pillsbury, Josiah Webster Pillsbury, Parker Webster Pillsbury, Elizabeth Dinsmoor (Pillsbury) Poole and Albert Pillsbury Phillips.

RE: Lulls, Elm Street Cemetery
Your quite welcome. I'm not sure if I mentioned that Lucinda (69432406) is the daughter of Daniel and Mary (Polly) (Paige) Caldwell.
Regards,
Virginia

Henri Jacques.
I did not make a mistake and put him in the wrong place. His name is on the stone in this cemetery.

RE: Martha Johnson
Vital records (marriage and death) of the two sons, Edward and Scott, list parents as Clarence Johnson and Elizabeth Adams. Also see Genealogical and Family History of the State of New Hampshire (on google books) pp 185-186 which lists Peabody Hodgdon Adams' children including daughter Elizabeth who married Clarence Johnson. The only Martha I know is Peabody's wife.

Meadowview Cemetery
Meadowview Cemetery (or Meadow View Cemetery) was first called West Cemetery because it is west of Amherst Village. I'm not sure when it became officially called Meadowview, but people still called it West Cemetery long after the 'pretty' name was created. Personally I dislike seeing the two words spelled together, but guess it really is the official spelling.

Carl Louis Ingraham
What a nice surprise to find that you had entered Carl Louis Ingraham in Pine Grove Cemetery, Brookline, NH, just two days ago. His wife Hilda, my mother-in-law's sister, was the last of the siblings that I was adding to findagrave. Are you related?
