I grew up in Maine, and now live in NH. The main goal of my cemetery visits is finding my ancestors and their collateral families, as well as seeking out the burial places of the soldiers from the 27th Maine Volunteers. I will also photograph all known Civil War veterans within the cemeteries I walk and, being the historian for NALF (National Association of Leavitt Families), I'm also looking for all Leavitt graves out there!|
See you in the graveyards!

Thank you so much for the tombstone photo for Zebedee Cushman! It is excellent! I really appreciate you taking the time to locate and photograph it! Thank you!
Its not a snooty thing, but excellent history. Winfield has at least three Mayflower ancestry lines, and probably four. These Hasty's are linked into the Strout, Jordan, Nickerson, Freeman, Treat families of Cape Cod, and the Coffins and Starbucks of Nantucket. Really interesting stuff. BTW, I lived in Brunswick for two years, then over in Madison, NH, south of Conway for seven. The genealogy group in Parsonsfield, ME was very active back then. (late 90's)

Hi again, Steve....
You mentioned photos and Augusta and Flora, so I went back to see the photos, but their names do not come up in a search so I was unable to see them, or their entries.
Also, I noticed that Winfield's entry has no wife, nor children listed.

|Dr. Jane||RE: Laurel Hill Cemetery - Winfield Hasty|
Steve, Thanks so much for the rapid reply.
I had NO information about the family, not even their names. Are you related? How do you know about the daughter, Flora? I wonder if there were any descendants.
I have Winfield's Civil War letters that he sent to the family in Arapahoe, NE. I brought them here to my home to scan them and will share them with the Maine Historical Society. He was stationed at Camp Chantilly in VA and nearby in Alexandria when he wrote them.

Hi Steve -
I have checked this site many times hoping to find Winfield Hasty, the child that my ancestor Oliver Staples Hasty left behind when he went west. The entire rest of the family is buried in my Nebraska hometown and every memorial day I have wondered about the branch left behind. Thank you for posting the grave. Any chance there are any photos or any knowledge of anymore Hasty's buried there?

My Name is Mark.. Was wondering how you are related to the 27th maine. My Grandfather's Grandfather was in the 27th Maine. He is not listed on the website but when I get to Maine will put the Hooper Family Plot on the site. James Wilbert Hooper is on the site in Pine Grove. I've been living in Farmington since 1978 and my mother grew up here.

|Dina Woodman Reed||Cemetery Newington|
In the History of my family it says In 1890 Mrs. Sarah Ann (Furber) Ball, a granddaughter of Jonathan and Elizabeth (Pickering) Woodman, erected a marble monument in the family lot in the graveyard by the old church in Newington. following is the inscription : Jonathan Woodman,1772-1806; Elizabeth Woodman,1777-1859; Captain Nicholas P. Woodman,1779-1860.
Elizabeth Woodman's maiden name was Pickering and I noticed there were many Pickering's listed in the Newington cemetery.
Is the Newington Cemetery the same one as the one by the old church? Did you see a monument for the woodman family?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
