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. Note: I do not copy/paste info from or obituaries. Edit requests from these will be declined. This is not the place.

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!

1. Thomas ALLEN (1770-1833) of Jay, ME, cannot 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!

Janet Withington (Bouchard)
Hi! Got your edit, suggesting that I change Janet Withington to her husband's name, Bouchard. Withington was her maiden name, and from what I find she seems to have used that name even after she got married: My wife did the same and uses her birth name. Janet was just in tonight's paper and the article referred to her by Withington. Unless you know more about this I'd like to honor Janet's wishes and have used the name she seems to have used in her life. Thanks- Paul

RE: Wrights
I'm glad I could help.

I did notice the memorials say Plot: section 9 lot 313 & 316.

They were actually located at NED Sec. 9, Lot 316.

Hi Cheshire , I have removed my memorials from Pine Hill Cemetery in Manchester for my aunt Anna Wilson McClintock, her husband James and their daughters. I am putting through an edit to connect Anna to parents. Thank you so much for the wonderful photos of their headstones and especially for getting them in the correct Pine Hill cemetery.

Warm regards,

Cheshire, I am researching my fathers family and I have found records that Doris Mary Shepardson was married to my Uncle Irwin Leon Hood on July 6, 1918. I recently submitted a edit to Doris' Find A Grave memorial and it was declined. Can you help me add my uncle to her profile. Hid Find A Grave Memorial # is 53595057. Thanks

Thanks! This just spurred a ton of edits. I had spent time sorting old family photos that my husband grandmother had carefully labeled. It helped me grow my husbands tree and because of that research I had info to add to her and her sisters family.
