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 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 in MA. This VIRTUE line allegedly hail from Northern Ireland.

Any leads will be greatly appreciated!

RE: Gideon Beaman-Hinsdale, NH
I only just removed the portrait from the album and saw what was written, knew it was a relative but not Gideon Jr until recently! glad I looked. BTY, He has a duplicate listing at another cemetery (Chrockshett or something like that) so I am glad I knew he resided in Hinsdale before I posted it to the wrong one. Cheers, Beverly

Owen Family in Appleton Cemetery
Okay... you can ignore most of the edit message I sent you on Thomas Kennedy/Emma Owen Streit)... I am totally confused.

All of the Owen family's death records said they were buried in Deering Cemetery in Deering, NH... but you have found their headstones in Appleton Cemetery in Hillsboro.

So... did Appleton used to be called Deering?

I'm glad I finally tripped across your graves in Appleton before I entered the entire family in Deering. lol

John Judge in Pine Grove Cemetery
Thank you for you notice you could not find the memorial for John Judge in Pine Grove Cemetery. 114609753

His death record from Hinsdale New York clearly sttes he was buried in Pine Grove.

If you are familiar with that cemetery is there someone I can contact who would be able to identify where he might be buried there. Very possible the stone is no longer standing, or that in 1930 no stone was placed because of the economy at that time.

Thank you

Thanks for posting the photo of Harrison Hinckley Shumway's gravestone. He was a g-g-g grandfather of mine. I didn't know where he had been buried. I'd like to contact you privately about some of the details, if you don't mind.

Hey Cheshire-
Sorry about my recent edit, I read the date of Joshua's first marriage wrong- His first wife Mersylvia (Spelled several different ways on the documents I have) doesn't actually have a memorial on here yet unless she remarried and I was not given the name since I am a direct descendant of Joshua and Martha.
Thanks for catching that!
