Hi Deb! I made the transfer to you and added the birth and death dates from the death record first. The photo we took is just horrible. I wish back then we had known the little trick we use now of lightly brushing the stone with flour to make it readable. The person who made the memorial for Phillip's wife, Susan, has an excellent photo with higher resolution of the headstone. If you write him, I will bet he will add his photo to Phillip. If you get the photo, let me know, and I will remove our awful one!

RE: Sidney Place relationship to Lucy Place Root?
Hi Deb
Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you, busy summer. I had forwarded you e=mail to my cousin to see what she has on the Places. She is a decedant of the Newell's but indirectly of the Places. She is a very knowledgeable. What I found does not link your Lucy to our family but I think there is a link somewhere. I'll try to give you what I have.
I have a Lucy Place b 1871 in IL married to Samuel
Hamilton and then Stephen Newell. Her f was Marcus T Place b 1847, gfather was Isaac M Place, b 1801, ggfather was John Place b abt 1744 in N H. There sure feels like there is a connection but I don't have it. Your Lucy could have come done from one of Sidney's brothers. I have his brothers listed as:
Isaac 1801, George b no date, William b no date, Ransome b no date, Johsep, Nathaniel b no dates, John Place Jr b 1792 at Belknap co NH
Sorry I could not be of any help. If my cousin has any more I will forward on to you. If you find any connection please let me know.
