You are quite welcome. I noticed that yours was on the ground, so thought it would be appropriate to add it.

Thank you for the quick response - I was filling in some blank locations, and usually go with a combination of sources; but the same stone in 2 different cemeteries....gotta be an "oops" ~ Thanks again.

RE: re: Alice J Moore
Thank you so much! I know my parents are going to put in a headstone for themselves and I hope too put in a stone for my son this fall. I will be sure to message you when each of these events takes place with details and pics that you are free to use.

I have checked out your site and am very impressed with all the hard work and quality! I am sure I will be using it often for my research.

Currently I am working on adding all the missing stones for Reed Cemetery in Colebrook along with Pics. I am also working on the Summer Street & Water Street cemeteries in Lancaster. This being said I know that this takes time. I am in no rush but will look forward to having them in my care when the time is right for you to do so.

Thank you again!

RE: re: Alice J Moore

Yes he really shares the same grave with Alice J Moore who was my step father's mother. Alice was cremated so there was enough room for my sons casket to be buried with her urn.

re: Alice J Moore
Thank you for listing the grave of my step father's mother.

If you do not mind I would like to manage her page as my son is buried here with her in the same plot. His name was Daniel Timothy Ward born Feb. 24, 1987 and he died on Sept. 22 1987. I will be posting a page for my son in the near future.

Alice was a great woman and I loved her as my grandmother. She was married to Frank Moore and they had 1 son Larry Frank Moore (still living).

Thank you again!

Many Thanks for these and a couple of other photos you have taken for me in the past. I was up in Essex and Orleans Counties last week taking Find A Grave photos and briefly stopped in St. Johnbury and puzzled how to find those grave and a couple others below. Any help would be appreciated.

Jessie Winnifred Dwyer Dugee 1888-1967 Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, St. Johnbury

Verna Susie Dwyer Hughes 1901-1983 St. Johnsbury?

RE: Mary (Brittain) Woodward
Bradford is well south. And the UVM Special Collections:§ion=dsc

Has a Jonathan Hunt and a William Woodward both corresponding with an Isaac Tichenor, the latter about an affair in Castleton (down by Rutland).

It also lists: 'Hunt, Nadine A. and Mitchell J.: "The Mysterious James Hunt (1747-AFT 1800), Pioneer of Bolton, Vermont 1794 and his son Captain Roswell Hunt (1776-1842) of Bolton, Richmond, Jericho, and Waterbury, Vermont." 2008'

I remember another William Woodward in the mix, so going on this UVM source alone I'd say there might also be another Mary. (If you can establish her, and that she married James, you have your answer--what's at Find a Grave is wrong.)

As to the Danville Green connection, I once again have to plead ignorance right now--until I can reestablish my line of thinking on that.

RE: Mary (Brittain) Woodward
Yes, I'm sure most of the information comes from your work on this. As to the last marriage, I can't find anything on it now--and I've been away from this research for so long it makes for a challenge.

My guess is that it came from the wealth of information another Woodward researcher has been doing--and carefully recording in blog-like fashion online.

If I'm right about this, you've either seen this information, or could find it.

Now that I've seen your query, let me root around a bit to see where I might have gotten it.

Ellathan Ide Woods
Thank you for your interest in the memorial for Ellathan. The information concerning Ellathan and John Woods marriage comes from her husband's family history records, not town or village records. In some cases, family records are the most reliable source available now, because Vermont did not require that the recording of births, marriages and deaths until 1857. best regards - Deb

Re: Ebenezer Pike
As to why Lucinda remained in Cornish is speculation on my part. I would hazard to guess that two small children were one motivation; the Pike family was quite well established in the Cornish/Plainfield area and so there was some status/support associated. Perhaps the wilds of Northumberland and distance from her family were also factors. As you note, the difference in age is significant but it's not uncommon in this time period and area as population was thin. Also to consider is her status as a widow. I've been unable to find whether she had children from her first marriage.

Your conjecture that Lucinda is actually the wife of the son would imply that he was married to two women at the same time as Ebenezer jr married Mary Hyde shortly after the death of his first wife Sarah.

with kind regards.
The source for the information is:
- History of the Town of Cornish, New Hampshire, vol 2 by William Child (1912)
- Merrimack and Sullivan Counties, New Hampshire Biographies
- The New England Historical and Genealogical Register (1875)
- Hyde Genealogy: Or, The Descendants,in the Female as Well as in the Male By Reuben Hyde Walworth
- The Jenney book: John Jenney of Plymouth, and his descendants by Bertha W. Clark, Susan C. Tufts (1988)

Ebenezer Pike (1754-1819) was born in Newbury MA. He married first (Sept 1801) Mary Salome Marcy, daughter of William Marcy and Lucy Bugbee
- Ebenezer Pike
- Lucy M Pike m John Cole
- Chester Pike (died in Northumberland)
- Pliny Pike (Jan 1793-Dec 26, 1872)
He married second Lucinda Kimball, widow of Alexander Waters
- Salome Pike (1811-) m Joseph P Lovell
- Mary Pike (Oct 23 1812-Feb 24 1895) m Ezekiel Olds Jenney

The son Ebenezer Pike (1789-1861) married first Sarah Chase Bryant, daughter of Sylvanus Bryant and Judith Chase
- Chester Pike (July 30, 1829-Nov 29, 1897)
- John B Pike (Feb 10 1831-)

He then married Mary Hyde, daughter of Elihu Hyde and Mary Hatch
