Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Certified Genealogist whose focus for 25 years has been a regional one-name study of Brooks families originating in early (pre-1700) New England. I maintain a website to share the early generations of these families at and am preparing a book on the descendants of Capt. Thomas Brooks, who died at Concord, Massachusetts in 1667. A secondary focus for even longer has been the old Willow Cemetery in Franconia, New Hampshire, dating to the late 18th century, which I first stumbled across, in a state of neglect, in 1967. Results and maps of an historical/archaeological survey I did there in 2002 for the Town of Franconia can be downloaded at

Brooks headstones
If there are any you're missing around Worcester, just let me know. I'll take a look. I also hang out around Amherst a lot, in case you need any out that way.

thanks Chris will do that. That way she'll stay out of Willow.

RE: Memorial# 142713068
Did you take a look at her obituary? What are your thoughts of her being back in Elmwood on Find A Grave? I'm betting no one knew about it and the ashes were spread there w/her husband.

RE: Memorial# 142713068
Hi Chris....this poor lady....I removed her from Willow and have put her back in Elmwood which is where her husband is buried...that for some reason makes sense to me considering she was cremated and that's where her husband is located.
Thanks for trying to help me on this...much appreciated...sorry to hear you can't go to Willow.

Here's the link to her obituary.

Dudley Eugene Clough
Hi Chris,
Thank you for all of your work on Dudley Eugene Clough. The following is a link to his Certificate of Death:
I know that death certs. often do always reflect the final outcome as to burials, I felt a review by one of the cemetery folks might shed some insight as to his final disposition. Being more familiar with death records, there might be something on the document that I missed, that would mean more to them.
His parents are buried in the Grove Hill Cemetery, Bath, Grafton, New Hampshire, so maybe he ended up there instead.
Please understand that Dudley was not a close relative, however if possible, I would like to place his Find A Grave memorial where it belongs.
Thank you again,

Thanks Chris for bringing this to my attention...she was in the wrong cemetery...she's now in Willow where she should be according to her obituary. Thanks again

RE: Your personal FAG profile
lol Glad I brought a smile to your face. I could have said a lot more in my bio but decided to try to curb my tongue. lol

Names get jumbled in my old brain but we very possibly have interacted in here before. I have done many graves in Lancaster and all the surrounding towns.
