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!

I was looking at the headstone that you posted for me of Nathaniel Holmes and I was wondering if you took photos all around the stone. I noticed the additional information on the side and wondered if there was information on the back or the other side of the monument?

RE: Simeon Stone
Sandy, So happy I could connect you with your ancestors. I was hoping you would create a memorial for Hannah. I have posted her pictures also. Bob

Thank you so much for the photo of the unmarked stones in the Orange,MA, Jones Cemetery, which I believe you correctly indicate are of wives, Elizabeth(d. 1808), Sarah(d.1847) and daughter Sally(d.1821, age 20) of Jabez Whitney.
There are quite a few Whitneys from my direct line in western Mass. and one, Chas. Mayo, married a girl from Chester,VT in 1860, Laura Acenath Maxfield.

A belated thank you for the photographs you took at my request last August. I've added memorials for the additional family members named on the monument, copied your monument photograph to each, and credited the photos to you.
