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!

Hi Cheshire, I have already created the above memorial for my great aunt Anna. I would deeply appreciate it if you would post your photo of her headstone to my existing one. I'm hoping there were headstones for the rest of family in plot 1265 and that you have photos. Many thanks!

Your Bluebird pic
Wow... That's a great shot of the bluebird on the gravestone. We are great bluebird fans, and feel that my dead parents visited us through a pair of bluebirds on the day we buried their ashes. I've come to realize that you just have to pay attention, and you will recognize how your loved ones are trying to reach out to you.
All the best,

Dear Cheshire,

Many thanks for the photos of these graves. I actually was at the funeral for Harold many years ago.
Kind regards,

Can you make it so I can manage the information on Louis Lashua 1843-1919 and Julia Blake Lashua 1850-1937. They are my 3rd great grandparents.
