|Bio and Links|
|I'm a middle school English teacher that spends "spare" time conducting genealogical research. I have spent lots of time in the Forest Hill and Laurel Hill cemeteries, but recently focused most of my efforts at St. Bernard's and St. Joseph's. |
Please feel free to use photos that I take for whatever purpose you choose. However, any and all photos must include proper source information in the citation. This allows other researchers to maintain the integrity of the research process.
I often have additional and/or higher quality images, and sometimes additional information, for many of the memorials. Please contact me if interested.
Please note that although I strive to take the best possible quality photos, I occasionally upload pictures that I plan to replace in the future.
I generally create memorials with the same spelling used on the marker, when one exists. Additional information, such as names of parents, also utilize information/spelling as seen on the primary sources.
Several gravestones at Laurel Hill no longer stand where they were first erected. Several factors, including erosion and vandalism, have led to these stones being placed in seemingly random locations. I try to document both where these stones are now, and where they should be.

My name is bette petermann connolly. I am just getting into doing genealogy of my family. I have a lot of ancestors buried in foresthill cemetery but don't know just where they are. maybe some in laurel hill too. I haven't had much luck in getting started and if you can help me in any way I would appreciate it. Clara was my grandmother, my mother was Lillian Helen Popp, my father, Arthur W Peterman. Are you somehow related to me? I would love to hear from you. bette m connolly, mason, nh phone # 603-878-6055

Thanks for the report, Bill, and apologies for the trouble I caused with an apparently unfulfillable request.
Having searched for a contact point for Forest Hill records, I gather there's a Fitchburg Board of Trustees of Public Burial Grounds. Would they be the next stop to confirm that Brown is actually in that mausoleum? Is it a private family mausoleum, or a large public building?
Again, many thanks for the effort.
|Heather Rea||RE: Frank Coutu|
Thank you , Bill! This must be the correct headstone, as my 2nd g-grandfather did indeed marry Aurelie Leger. The marriage record lists his parents, so I am sure it must be him.
His birth and death dates don't match what I have, though-- I have a baptism from 1844 (St-Thomas, Quebec) and a death record for 10 March 1912 (Fitchburg). Maybe I got something wrong, or maybe because he moved back to Massachusetts in his old age not everything was known about him. It's a new mystery to me.
At any rate, I am sure you got the right photo! Thanks again, this gives me some valuable information.

You are correct. It is Christine. Just checked my descendants from Family Tree Maker and saw that I had made a mistake in the name. Thank you for letting me know that.

Thank you for the photo. After Pauline died, her husband married my grandmother.
Thank you so much for the photo of the tombstone of Eugenie Landry.
