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. 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 or contact me for a transfer. If they're not a direct ancestor of mine, I will gladly release them to you.

Please help 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 13 passengers who arrived on the Mayflower: James & dau. Mary CHILTON; Francis & son John COOKE; Edward FULLER; Stephen & Elizabeth (Fisher) HOPKINS; John HOWLAND; Thomas 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 of Sussex, Kings Co., New Brunswick (son William James b. 21 Feb 1857) This VIRTUE line allegedly hail from Northern Ireland.

Any leads will be greatly appreciated!

RE: Find A Grave Correction for Louis Welch
Hi Sandy,
Thank you very much for the information on Louis Welch at Meetinghouse Cemetery in Ashburnham MA.
I corrected my records.

RE: Bisbees-Ashburnham
Nope- no photos. I found a few death certs on line so I added the Bisbees because it said they were all buried there.

Clarinda Holbrook Chapman
Big thanks for that image of the stone for Clarinda Holbrook Chapman, it helps clarify her birth year relative to her daughter born in 1803.
I very much appreciate this labor of love you've done... a huge service! Thank you! - Butch

Belle Staniels
Please keep the other one in. Yours is correct. I never asked the other person to create a duplicate entry. I was just trying to get her to link Ruth Cram to the correct entry for her mother (which was yours). I've since asked her to transfer my grandmother to me so that I can link it to your entries for Arthur and Belle Staniels.

RE: Belle Staniels
If you right click the photo you can do a "save as" and then put it on the earlier memorial. That way it will still show you as the person placing the photo. I could do it for you, but wanted you to have credit for it.
