Please help honor and preserve our past-ADOPT A CEMETERY IN YOUR AREA.
PLEASE folks, remember the function of this website is ONLY for DOCUMENTED GRAVE locations of the deceased, not blind family trees or theories. Do that to your heart's content on Ancestry, FamilySearch & the like. No plopping please! Why?

Contributor John plops a name in a random cemetery. Mary sees it & requests a photo. Volunteer photographer Harry then hoofs it for hours on end searching for a non-existing stone! Loved ones will not be able to pay their respect. Understand?? Please be kind. Please be accurate.

I do not connect to "burial unknown", copy/paste info from or obituaries. Edit requests from these will be declined. This is not the place.

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.

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 of 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 (1889) in MA. This VIRTUE line allegedly hail from Northern Ireland.

Any leads will be greatly appreciated!

Find a Grave suggestion
Thank you for your suggestion in regards to Matthew Birchard Goodwin. I cannot accept your request to change his middle name to Burchard however. Birchard is a family name. His birth records also records his name as Birchard Goodwin.
Matthew's sister Alice was my husband's great grandmother. We received a lot of additional information from on the family from Alice's son Wilbur Duane. Thank you for your interest.

Emily A Townsend Robbe 48400824
Hi Sandy,

Great to hear from you. I added the marriage info for Emily.

I totally slacked this year in photographing. I've been busy updating a lot of my old memorials and linking like crazy. I'm trying to add some census information etc. Contributor Lisa D has been photographing a lot of St. John's in Gardner and adding pictures to many of my old memorials based on death certificates - which is awesome. Some of those I created seven years ago.

So she's been letting me add the rest of the family listed on the stones and I try to research info on them. She basically wants to add photos not memorials. So that's kind of a cool teamwork thing going on.

I found where he was buried and sent an edit to the manager so he will be included on the list. Thanks again.

RE: Melissa Howard #168449973
Sorry, I should have made myself clear. Melissa also has a brother A. A. Howard and he isn't listed as a sibling, so I just sent that news release to let folks know there is another brother. Just ignore me, LOL

RE: Photo thank you!
Thank you! I'm now working on finding out how to prove his wife is actually Peggy Peabody. Unfortunately her daughter's birth record lists mom's maiden name as "Peggy Babcock". I need a marriage of Peggy peabody to Amos Babcock, so that's my focus to prove Asa Peabody as another patriot. Thanks for the Amos photo!
