Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born into an old New England family and raised in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. As a youth I didn't know (or care) much about my family history. Now I have been bitten by the genealogical bug, or maybe it was a shark, and it's incurable.

I dedicate my efforts to those who have been forgotten

I live in Forest City, North Carolina, an 11th generation American!

Look for my memorialized individuals at Ancestry.Com, "One American Family" tree

Much credit and honor must be given to those who compiled much of the information I've added for the New Hampshire cemeteries. They are Anita Downing for her Pine Grove Cemetery transcription; Beverly MacIntosh for her transcriptions of Woodstock cemeteries and much more; Barbara Avery for her Woodstock Town Records; Lester & Rita (Hammond) Mitchell and The Campton Historical Society for their copy of Campton Cemetery internments and Jane Westfall for her copy of the inventory of internments at The Homeland Cemetery in Bristol. Special acknowledgement and thanks goes to R. W. Musgrove and his "History of Bristol, New Hampshire" for much confirming evidence for those buried in the Homeland Cemetery.

Much heartfelt thanks to all of those who have added to my knowledge of my family history.
-------------------------------------------
Many many years ago when I was twenty three,
I got married to a widow who was pretty as could be.
This widow had a grown-up daughter
Who had hair of red.
My father fell in love with her,
And soon the two were wed.

This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life.
My daughter was my mother,
For she was my father's wife.
To complicate the matters worse,
Although it brought me joy,
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy.

My little baby then became
A brother-in-law to dad.
And so became my uncle,
Though it made me very sad.
For if he was my uncle,
Then that also made him brother
To the widow's grown-up daughter
Who, of course, was my step-mother.

Father's wife then had a son,
Who kept them on the run.
And he became my grandson,
For he was my daughter's son.
My wife is now my mother's mother
And it makes me blue,
Because, although she is my wife,
She is my grandma too.

If my wife is my grandmother,
Then I am her grandchild.
And every time I think of it,
It simply drives me wild.
For now I have become
The strangest case you ever saw.
As the husband of my grandmother,
I am my own grandpa!!

A million times we'll need you,
a million times we'll cry.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
no one else will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.

from the memorial to Anthony Thomas Pellicci, 1929-2009

How soon fades
the tender flower
....from the marker of Ruby Lee, 1917-18
-------------------------------------------
Oh, for the touch of the
banished hand
A sound of the voice that
is stilled.
from L.M. Capps' marker
-------------------------------------------
Dear Ancestor,
Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone,
The name, the date, are chiseled out in weather-beaten stone.
It reaches out for all to see, it is too late to mourn,
You did not know I would exist, you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are part of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone,
And in my breast there beats a pulse entirely not my own.

RE: Transfers
Thank you so much Sir. I'm distantly related (5th & 6th cousins) to most of the Parrish clan in North Carolina. The Parrish family came to America from England in the late 1600s. They passed through Virginia and landed in NC. After the "Civil War" they dispersed through the USA.

Thank again.

Good morning. you have a stone photo on findagrave memorial 35061976.
Would you please post that same photo onto memorial 27352272.
Did not want to lose your photo when I work through a duplicate situation with these contributors (sometimes the memorial with the photo gets deleted and that's no good).
Thank you, Susan srperhala2010@yahoo.com

Hi Scott,

Thanks so much for the link for Susan's husband. I just requested his transfer from BL as I've much to add and link to his page.

Unfortunately, he is one who got lost in the shuffle. Apparently I was working on Susan's line, was interrupted and never got back to finishing up Tim's family page. Your hint brought me back to them.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

Hannah (Cook) Clark
Hi Scott,

I was looking up family members and was wondering if these two are the same person #70532704 and #68181488. The information I have on the Hannah Clark I am related to is that she was born about 1793 and married Joseph Clark. She lived in the Campton and Plymouth areas of New Hampshire. Maiden name Cook, daughter of Cutting. Hoping you might have some more information about this individual.

Thanks for your help both now and in the past,
=) Megan
