Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Certified Genealogist whose primary focus for close to 25 years has been a regional one-name study of Brooks families of early New England. I maintain a website to share this information at and am preparing a book on one of these families, the descendants of Capt. Thomas Brooks, who died at Concord, Massachusetts in 1667. A secondary focus for even longer has been the old Willow Cemetery in Franconia, New Hampshire, which I first visited in 1968. Results and maps of an historical/archaeological survey I did there in 2002 for the Town of Franconia can be downloaded at

Corrections and additions are always appreciated.

RE: Dakins | Hillsdale NY
There were several Dakin graves at the other cemetery on old town Rd. None of them were who you requested. They my have been related.

I had a great time. The old community cemetery on old town road is not well preserved. It's sad to see broken or missing head stones. But I did find what you were after with Phebe. There's weathering issues and lichen.

RE: Mary/Anna Gould
I was in the area, so no problem at all! I wish I had better results. Rubbings on some of the deteriorated stones could be helpful... you could request someone to do that....

Chris, I had already added Doris back in 2013 and linked her to her parents, and she has a picture of the headstone on her memorial. Would appreciate it if you would delete the new memorial you just made for her. Are you related to these people? Am more than willing to transfer - I am not in this for the ###'s. Barb

Stiles family
I transferred Ruth's memorial to you and added a photo of Francis Stiles headstone to Benjamin's memorial. You can see that it is obviously the same stone. This is a beautiful old cemetery let me know if you are looking for anyone else here.AAlmost directly across the street is "Rag Land" Farm where a Stiles family member still resides.
