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!

Village Cemetery, Peterborough, NH
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

All good wishes,

Tracy Messer

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!

Thanks for looking for Levi Martin. There was a picture on Ancestry of his stone. I was hoping there might be other family members nearby.

Crowningshield Cemetery

Have you photographed the Crowningshield Cemetery on Route 63 just south of the Chesterfield town line in the town of Hinsdale, NH. It is on the West side of Route 63 near the Crowningshield Rd. Just a very small Cemetery and I don't think that there is a Cemetery sign at all.

Would love to have photos of that very small cemetery & headstone photos. I think that most everyone buried there is a Crowningshield or married to one.
