I have documented all the cemeteries in Lebanon, NH; the Etna, Hanover Center and Dana Cemeteries. I have also documented all the Civil War soldiers within these cemeteries. I have been researching Lebanon Residents in the Civil War; and also the Civil War Soldiers buried in Lebanon, NH Cemeteries. I plan to include bios on all of these men. I am secretary of the Lebanon Historical Society. I am on the Soldiers Memorial Building Committee (Old G.A.R. Hall). It has been brought to my attention that some contributors are using my "published" documents as their own in the Lebanon and Hanover, NH cemeteries. Any contributor that has done this must give "credit" to me for the documentation.
RE: Lilla Pike Your are right, research sometimes refers to a person with more than just one name. But for this site it's irrelevant. It is a grave registration site, so you go by what the stone says. Any deviation is to be explained in the bio-section. Other than a "period" or a "hyphen", no punctuation is to be used in the name fields. Thank you.
Lillis, Ross, Goss & Kingsbury graves in Dana Cemetery, Hello Fran: since you have devoted so much effort into developing the files on the above. Rather than you transferring them over to me, for adding data, I would prefer to have the files remain in your control. I will continue to develop new data on the various files and present them to you for adding to the grave site. I do sincerely appreciate your efforts. I now believe I understand why Elvira Amanda Ross Lillis Goss, was buried in Dana Cemetery, since her children from Lillis, and Goss marriages were buried there and then of course her second husband. Seems that John A Goss was a farmer and had a farm next to his brother Issac, when he was married to Elvira and they had Willie. Sadly Willie and Elvira died from consumption. Dean.
RE: Sally Ross Hi: Sorry about that, I will make necessary corrections in spelling. It should read Kingsbury. I am still working on all this. My Lillis family came from Dorchester: Henry Lillis 1763-1854 and William B Lillis 1761-1826. We have been unable to locate any of their graves in Rummey or Dorchester, but know that most of them died there. Henry and William came from Kittery York Maine. Dean.
RE: Elvira A. Ross Lillis-Goss Sorry I have no records that show where Samuel Lillis or John A Goss were buried. I do have a copy of Samuel's Will that shows he died in Dorchester and named his wife Eliva and 4 children: Milton, Amanda, Sarah and Horace in the will. Also I have the marriage certificate for Elvia Lillis and John A Goss 3 Jun 1855, in Hanover, NH. I will keep looking. Dean
