Bio and Links
Bio Photo Graveyards throughout Cheshire Co., NH; Franklin & northern Hampshire counties, MA. Member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) & the Historical Society of Cheshire County

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: Evergreen Cem.
Hi, Sandy,

I sent pictures for the Smith family, as I had "claimed" them for Find A Grave. I did photos for about 1/2 of section Q. Will return to finish when the weather clears. Sections Q, R and S. seem manageable...I hope! Take care!

Elihu Osgood Clark Dexter
Memorial# 114700683 Hi Cheshire my name is Bonnie and I'm writing to ask if I may use your Photo for Elihu on my family tree (ancestry). I will be sure to credit for the Photo, Findagrave and the creator of the Memorial. Thank You Very Much Bonnie :) I also have a question on the Memorial it lists his birth as Aug. 13 but on the stone it says the 12? Again Thanks :)

Submit Estes Stebbins
Thank you for all the work you do in New Hampshire, and I appreciate your posting the photo of Submit's headstone...she was my 3rd great-grandmother. I'm hoping to get out East again sometime soon to track down more of my Yankee kin: Stebbinses, Estes and Jaquiths.

RE: Evergreen Cem.
How do people coordinate their activities so that people aren't photographing areas that others have already done? What do you do with the pictures once you have taken them? I'm confused because Find A Grave has a list of people whose graves need photos taken. I claimed 7 people in the Evergreen Cemetery, but you said that you had taken those pictures already. What will you do next? Thanks for helping me to understand the process.

RE: Evergreen Cem.
So, you will be putting the photos up on the find a grave site, correct? I won't do Evergreen if you already have it covered. Thanks, Sandy.

RE: Evergreen Cem.
Thanks. Find A Grave sent out an email message that I received yesterday re a request for pictures of the Smith family's graves. I "claimed" the family on the find a grave site to volunteer to take the photos. If you already have the pictures, I will "unclaim" their names and you could submit the pictures. Did you do any other sections? Let me know what you'd like to do.
Thanks, again!

Naramore
May I ask the documentation for the request to change the spelling to Naromore? I have found no families around here that spell their names Naromore. The variations I have witnessed are Narmore, Naramor, Naramore. I would be happy to make the changes, but only ask for documentation.

I submitted changes to this memorial via the edit tab. I found the information on the death certificate. Thank you.

Thank you very much for your recent additions from the Village Cemetery in Peterborough, NH.

I've incorporated a number of links into the new mobile app walking tour of downtown Peterborough, Explore "Our Town". It's available online at peterborough.toursphere.com

All good wishes,

RE: Dorcas Fowler
You are welcome! There would be no way to know that is here grave becasue the inscription is eroded, but I have a map and book that together convinced me that was her stone. The same book indicates that her child Frederick Augustus is also buried in Eastern Cemetery, but his gravestone is lost. I'm a member of "spirits Alive" a group who is working to conserve and restore Eastern Cemetery. Perhaps we'll find it one day!
