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.

“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” Pericles
I dedicate my efforts to those who have been forgotten

I live in Forest City, North Carolina, an 11th generation American and member of the Sons of the American Revolution

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!!
borrowed from N.L. Craig
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.

Moses Little gravestone #66727353
I have added the photo of the gravestone that was found on the website included in the caption. This is not a personal photo and I will remove it if you recommend. It is different from the photo already displayed. Could it possibly be the same memorial?

Just want to Know
Hello again. Would you please answer a question for me. As required by Find A Grave Rules, we can no longer scan obituaries to memorials. I now rewrite the obituaries in my own words, not verbatim and excluded any living persons, as required. Do you still want me to send obits this way. If you do not wish to enter such info, would you please let me know so I will not bother you anymore. According to Find A Grave Rules we can still scan death certificates, is it alright to add death certificates to your memorials? Thanks a regards.

Scott, I was wondering if you would link my cousins memorial to her mother. She was my Aunt Ethel's only child. My Aunt Ethel's memorial # is 139547355 and my cousin's memorial # is 64540983.
Thank you,

I was wondering how much info you have about this family, I notice that the family has 2 different spelling ( Glovier and Glover. Do you know which one is correct. They are part of my family. Thank you for any info you may have.
