Researching my own family history and try to capture photos whenever I'm near a cemetery in my tree, but most of what I need is on the East Coast. Any pictures of headstones I have photographed have no copyrights attached and are free to be used as desired.

RE: Keezer Headstone
You are welcome. One note though... he is buried in Meadow Cemetery, not Meadow Cemetery I. They are across the street and down from each other.

These cemeteries are fascinating to me as all headstones are placed chronologically. You can see the evolution from headstones to flat stones.

Meadow Cemetery I begins burials from the early 1970s. It is mostly an empty meadow since they closed the NH State Hospital not long after.

I have a document outlining the different buildings of the NH State Hospital grounds and their history if you are ever interested.

Hi Ralph..I've completed documenting the cemetery. All names in the MOCA book have been added. Everyone who has a stone has been photoed, and those without a stone have been noted in the bio. Happy hunting! Kit

Hello Ralph,

You are welcome. I just stumbled across them a couple of weeks ago while researching the Field family. Their daughter Effie was the 2nd wife of Frank Field.

I have sent edits and links to Angie's parents.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper

See 150812257. When I got home and was sorting through photos, I was surprised to find that my random shot of Grace was not in Find a Grave.

Your ancestry tree was helpful in finding her parents and I added the links.
