My Goal: I try to adopt the small older cemeteries here in southwestern New Hampshire that either have not been covered or completing those that only have a few entries. I do my best to be complete: transcriptions, photo & any known family connections verified by vitals. If town histories are available, I try to enter any additional information for a person.

Now that I have basically completed all of my family lines, I hope I can help you find leads for your ancestors. Please feel free to use any of the stone photos,with credit, or contact me for a transfer. If they're not a direct ancestor of mine, I will gladly release them to you.

Please help honor and preserve our past-ADOPT A CEMETERY IN YOUR AREA.

About myself: I have been a genealogy fanatic for over 30 years, New Englander to the core. It has been a wonderful trip! Through my research, I have found that by three of my four grandparents, we are direct descendants of 14 passengers who arrived on the Mayflower: James & dau. Mary CHILTON; Francis & son John COOKE; Edward FULLER; Stephen & Elizabeth (Fisher) HOPKINS; John HOWLAND; Thomas & son Joseph ROGERS; John & Joan (Hurst) TILLEY w/dau Elizabeth; and Richard WARREN. (I can't believe it!!)

Happy Researching!

BRICKWALLS: 1. Thomas ALLEN (1770-1833) of Jay, ME, can't verify parents allegedly: Thomas ALLEN II from Watertown, MA

2. David & Mary (_?_) VIRTUE whose son, William James (b. 21 Feb 1857), was allegedly of Sussex, Kings Co., New Brunswick prior to his marriage in MA. This VIRTUE line allegedly hail from Northern Ireland.

Any leads will be greatly appreciated!

RE: Hannah Bloss-Fisk
Thank you for the reply.

I am having a difficult time with her birth date, however, and since she is in my family tree, I'd love to know what the real date is.

I have 2 May 1793 in Dunstable, Hillsborough, NH as her birth date - this comes from the New Hampshire Births and Christening Index, 1714-1904. It shows her father's name as Nathan, and her mother Martha. She married Ezra Fisk - my tree member - and her children were Charles and Harriet.

Findagrave has 27 Sept 1791 Lunenburg, Essex, VT as Hannah's birth date. Do you have information as to which is correct?

Thx for the great photos of Caroline Whitney Young and Edward Whitney. I also had a request for Otis Young 95923352 who is probably with them. Did you look for him and not find him or did you not look?

Thank you for taking the picture of her gravestone. I presently live in Utah and seeing family gravestones back East brings joy. Thanks for sharing.
