Bio Photo Hi everyone!

I love genealogy and believe that many good things can come from visiting local cemeteries and by cleaning them up. The idea of losing some of these smaller sites in Maine and New Hampshire due to vegetation and vandalism worries me. I'm willing to help search for a cemetery if you have a general location!

My family (Eastman, Tyler, Richard, Ellingwood) was based in Oxford county Maine for quite some time but I can't find many of their stones. My plan is to transcribe as many places as I can and hopefully stumble upon some of my "lost" family members.

Our deepest family mystery is what ever happened to Leslie Eastman (1874-1902)? The 1900 census had him in Dixfield and his death certificate has him dying of pneumonia in Rumford but there is no burial location.

I love to help where I can so feel free to hit me up!

Hi Jenny,

Thanks for the message. I have sent a message to the lady who photographed the grave for the memorial to see if she has any information. It's possible it could be in another cemetery of the same name. Hopefully when I hear from her I can figure it out and put the family where they belong.

Thanks,
Lisa

RE: Ye Old Cemetery, Danville, NH
Hi Jennifer,

Yes, that is not Ye Olde Cemetery. I've tried looking to see if I can't figure it out, but haven't been successful so far. I noticed about two years ago that some photos in this cemetery are not of this cemetery. And, yes, you are correct there are interments that aren't really this cemetery. I've written by Find A Grave message and e-mail to the person that posted them a couple of times now and never get any response. I don't know if they aren't around any more or what.

I do have photos of every stone in that cemetery. Working on trying to make them legible. I work full time and it's hard sometimes to find time to work on these.

Who were you looking for there? I might be able to find them for you.

Hannah Palmer
Hello,

I believe the death year on the gravestone for Hannah Palmer is actually 1847 and not 1817 as is listed on the memorial page.

Best wishes,
Jim

Hi cousin
I ran across one of your memorials this evening and then looked at a few of the Eastman's in your virtual cemetery. I noticed that Ebenezer Eastman (1749-1820) is my 3rd cousin, 5x removed. From which branch of Roger's tree are you a descendant? I am down the Samuel (1657-1725), Ebenezer (1701-1746) line.

RE: Waterhouse
Jennifer,

I am sorry, but I can't even remember which memorials I shared for corrections. Sorry about that. I send out too many at times.

Sterling Grave markers
Jennifer:

Sorry about all the rain. The Sterling grave markers I think are near the center of the cemetery near the flag poll. That is another reason I left the photos that I took so you would have an idea of what you are looking for.

If you have a map of Peaks Island, four of the five cemeteries are shown on the map: Pond Grove, Ye Ole Trott Burial Grounds (near Pond Grove), Brackett (near Brackett Point), and Trefethen (not far from the Trefethen Evergreen Improvement Association Building)on Wild Rose...kind of difficult to find off Oaklawn Rd. The Plante Cemetery is the smallest and the most difficult to find. It is off the road near the Peaks Island Transfer & Recycling station. There are no signs. I rode my bike by the dirt road several times before I finally went down the dirt road. There was a large pile of gravel by the road if that helps. Good luck! I am glad to see there is someone else interested in Peaks Island Cemeteries.
Take care,
Bob Hague
