|Bio and Links|
|My wife and I have been very interested in tracing our family history back as far as we can for a couple of years now. After my grandparents and other relatives have passed away I was given all the pictures from their houses so I have a lot of very old pictures as well as very old family Bibles. My wife, children, and I have traveled all over Maine and into New Hampshire visiting cemeteries and taking pictures of our ancesters. It is a great project and we have learned a lot of interesting facts about our family heritage. Some of the names we have in our immediate pedegree are Hodsdon, Waltz, Kimball, Bowley, Garland, Thyng, Creamer, Leavitt, and Bartlett. Robert and Heidi Hodsdon|

I looked through the cemetery listing and found the Hodgdon...with a picture! Went back to the cemetery and found it from the bush in the picture. Told the caretaker who was still there. he said, "Oh, someone called about that a couple weeks ago and I told them right where it was." Don't know why he couldn't tell me right where it was. Regardless, I am glad you got your picture. Someone has trimmed the bush and planted some flowers, it looks good.

The Hodsdon request for Dow Cemetery is no longer active, and I can't recall the specifics. I saw the caretaker and stopped and talked with him today. We looked through the cemetery log book and found no Hodsdons. His daughter has put everything in a spreadsheet which is easily searchable. If you give me the specifics, I will send her an e-mail and ask for your names.

I've added the relationship links as you've requested. Just wondering, are you a relative by any chance?

I saw where there is a picture of him on the site. What kinda picture are you looking for? Apicture of his stone?
Hi, I recently walked Dow Cemetery looking for a Hodgdon. I found now. I did find some Hodgsons.
I drive by frequently, next time I see the caretaker out, I will stop and ask him about Hodgdons. He is friendly and is happy to look through his log book when asked.

Are you going to create memorials for them at Smith Cemetery?

I added a picture for Ernest Hodgdon in Steep Falls Cemetery (though someone else had already claimed the request). There were a number of Hodgdons (all in the same plot) that were not previously listed as interned in the cemetery. I added them along with pictures. I'm guessing that Ernest must be a grandson of Orin and Lydia, but there was no indication of this at the cemetery other than being in the same plot and my guess from the dates.

I went to Saint John the Baptist Cemetery on my way home from the Princeton Flea Market. I was not able to locate their graves. The cemetery was much bigger than I thought. I will try to call someone ahead of time to see if I can get a location before I go next time.
I did find several more Roguskes while I was there. I took photos and created memorials for them. Maybe you will find someone in your family there.
I will definitely be trying again. I just can't resist the Princeton Flea Market. :)
