Re: Mrs. Lillie Southfield Memorial # 102048673. I have added your edit request to the memorial with a note that she is noted in the articles as his mistress. Thanks for sharing, sometimes the facts are difficult to prove so all possibilities must be considered.
Abigail (above) is my 6th great grandmother. I have just begun developing a profile for her on my family tree, and I am finding it difficult to get any information about her beyond her marriage to my 6g grandfather, Capt. Andrew Wiggin. I am hoping you can help me.
In her memorial you give precise dates and locations for her birth and death. Can you provide me with your sources for this information? I would be grateful for any direction you can give me in trying to locate documentation for these facts and, hopefully, for the names of her parents and any other facts you may know.
Thank you very much for memorializing her, helping to ensure that she will not be forgotten.
I just transferred George Potter to your care then I realized I failed to change the bio stating the incorrect parents. You will want to do this. Sorry I forgot. Don't know where I got the wrong info on him. Thanks for correcting me. Peggy
In my travels today I was able to photograph the Colcord's in Dudley Cemetery (Brentwood). Also, I noticed that Capt John's parents are buried in Wadleigh a few streets over and are already photographed. I copied Lydia's memorial number before I wrote this message in case you wanted to search it fast. 82494335
Colcord's Hey there! We've spoken before of our shared Eastman heritage but now I wanted to let you know that I've just put in (and have many more to go) a boat load of Colcord's in the Plains Cemetery in Kingston, NH. I know that a number of Eastman's and Colcord's had been married in the area and was not sure if they had meaning to you. Check it out if you like and if you're missing something let me know! I have next weekend off (no kids) and would like a few projects!
