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!

South Cemetery
While looking at some memorials in this cemetery, I came across a few duplicate memorials that you created which I sent you an edit for. There appears to be several others however. You may want to take a look at your memorials in that cemetery.

I made a mistake. Sarah Wood should be the wife of Rev. Abraham Wood, not his mother. Can you please correct it? Appreciate it. Peter

Sandy, thank you so much for looking for them. Someone told me they no longer existed, so I really appreciate your time and effort.

Israel Stowell Jr (1703-1776)
I saw your message on his memorial stating that he was a descendant of the Mayflower passenger Edward Fuller. He is my ancestor so I'd love to know his line back to the Mayflower. Any help would be appreciated! Do you happen to know if this line been approved by the Mayflower Society yet?

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.

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
