|Bio and Links|
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.|

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
A sound of the voice that
from L.M. Capps' marker
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.

|BL Hughes||ELMER BURLEIGH|
WEST THORNTON MERCHANT COMMITS SUICIDE
ELMER C. BURLEIGH FOUND DEAD IN HIS STORE
It was with a profound shock to West Thornton and surrounding towns that it was learned Elmer C. Burleigh had committed suicide Wednesday morning. He was found on the couch upstairs in the general store which he owns in West Thornton about 8:30 by his wife, having taken his own life a short time previous. West Thornton has thus lost one of its most valued and upright citizens. It is said that he had been rather downcast and depressed for the last several days, not appearing like his own cheerful self. Elmer C. Burleigh was born in West Thornton in the house where he made his home up to his death, on November 30, 1867, the son of John C. and Sarah (Avery) Burleigh. He was the youngest in a family of three boys and one girl. He received his schooling in West Thornton, later working as Cook in a lumbering concern that floated its logs down the Pemigewasset River and Merrimac River to Lowell, Massachusetts. He later worked for Emmons Bros. at the Bobbin Mill and as an accomplished carpenter worked at Stag and Hounds in West Campton.
In 1924 he built his General Store in West Thornton and had always been known for his honest and straightforward dealings. His natural retiring nature accounted for the fact that time after time he refused public office.
In 1891 he was married to Miss Abbie Johnson of Billerica Massachusetts and was a native of West Thornton. They have always made their home in the Burleigh Homestead in West Thornton. As Mr. Burleigh was the only one left in the original family of three boys and a girl, it now makes the extinction of this branch of the Burleigh family.
Funeral services are being held this Friday afternoon at the Methodist Episcopal Church in West Thornton and it is expected that Miss Mildred Merrill, pastor will officiate. Burial will be in Pine Grove Cemetery in Thornton. Survivors include his widow, three nephews, Ralph Steele, George Steele and Harry Steele two grandnieces and one grand-nephew. >The Plymouth Record, November 10, 1934, p1.

Thanks for the info. I find people added from a register or list to have quite minimal information. It's satisfying when someone like you can fill in the gaps.

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?
|Record Hunter||RE: Just want to Know|
Appreciate that. I am just trying to follow the rules and not offend anyone, regards.
|Record Hunter||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, thank you for linking my cousin Novella, with her mother.
