"Memories of You" was a pop song published in 1930 (lyrics by Andy Razaf; music by Eubie Blake). It was best popularized by the incomparable Benny Goodman and his orchestra. My Dad used to practice it at home on his clarinet when I was a kid, though I never knew what it was called back then, and didn't know the lyrics. Now every time I hear that tune, it brings back my memories of those happy days, and memories of my father and other loved ones gone ahead.|
It's been said that no one is finally dead until he is forgotten. Another thought along these lines runs: You are not really dead until after your name is spoken aloud on earth for the last time.
At every gravesite, no matter how old, how poorly marked, how long forgotten, there lies the memory of a precious life lived with a beginning, a middle, an end, and a story worth telling and remembering. Each tombstone marks a significant day of human sorrow. And around most every tombstone was once gathered the unbreakable force of love.
Findagrave and its volunteers are here to respect those memories and to help keep those individual stories and names alive, whenever possible. Each memorial made here is for one more person who is gone but not forgotten.
Turn Again To Life
by Mary Lee Hall
If I should die and leave you here awhile
be not like others sore undone,
who keep long vigil by the silent dust.
For my sake turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand
to do something to comfort others than mine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
and I perchance may therein comfort you.

An observation on your research and 2 record suggestions.
Your memorial for Dustin Hamlett is accurately transcribed from Willeys, but 2 records with dates of death which are exact suggest his name could have been Justin. The 2 records of death reflect a person who was in the Civil War and died of non battle related issues. He was from Londonderry, NH.Although Willeys probably took information from the gravestones, there is no stone at Valley except Ellen L a child possibly his daughter, who may have been born 1 month before his death. The death record also shows a relative with first initial of "E:(Ellen?).
Here are the two records:
Assuming you have access to Ancestry, otherwise I can print them for you.

I have uploaded your requested photo. Valley is a relatively small 17th century burial ground(200ydsx65yds). Mary is buried next to Elizabeth Leach. Elizabeth is buried next to Joseph and Olive Leach. I would estimate Willie and Rosella are buried 35 yds or so from Mary in section (W) and Ellen Hamlett is buried in section(EE) about 100 yds away from Mary in the Hovey lot. Not sure if there was a relationship there or not.
you are most welcome.
if Eliza (Turner) Bennett is in your tree I'd like to discuss further. She was born 31 OCT 1815 Chester, Hampden, Mass. died 9 JAN 1881 Becket, Mass. She was the wife of Jonas Bennett.
agreed, 1s and 4s constantly confused along with 7s. changed transcription

thanks very much for taking the time to send me his birth date. It's great to revisit memorials created awhile back as I always try to look at them with a fresh eye and check the online resources for new info. In case he of specific interest to you, I've added to his bio:
Monroe Turner of Conway died this afternoon at Franklin county hospital. He was a former resident of Ashfield.

The farm of the late Monroe Turner will be sold at auction Saturday afternoon. It is on the old road between Conway and Williamsburg.
