RE: Olivia Sprague
Thank you. Many of the oldest cemeteries in rural northern New England are in similar shape. Sometimes vandalism is to blame, but another culprit is found in the extremes of centuries of cold weather and frost heaves (a phenomenon you don't have in NC) which topple stones.

In 2002 I spent the entire spring and summer surveying and mapping a semi-neglected cemetery in Franconia, NH, which had its interment heyday from the 1790s through 1850 or so, then was allowed to be encircled by massive and overhanging tall pines. My results are visible at http://www.tributaries.info/willowindex.htm

Those pines not only shaded the cemetery, promoting mildew and the eventual rot of most of the marble stones, but also dropped countless stone-breaking dead limbs over the years. There are probably four sunken graves or observable low spots for every extant gravestone, and three broken stones for every intact stone.

Mystery solved Dorman Cemetery and Woods Hill Cemetery are one and the same. Woods Hill appears to be the "modern" name in use. Thanks for your care in noting the Dorman index.

RE: Jonathan Brooks and Hannah Strong Brooks
Thanks, I'll be happy to accept custody. Do you mean to say that they were known to be buried in Dornan in 1921, and that gravestones have been moved since? Or were actual burials moved, which sometimes happens when a cemetery is abandoned or relocated?

Thank you for taking the picture of Asa's grave. So hard to read, I probably saw it but couldn't read it. Appreciate your effort.

RE: Hazel McCowan Bugbee
Thanks for your message. I am not sure who "Alta" was. Was she a McCowan (wife or child of Charles McCowan) or possibly a child of Harry Winter Bugbee and Hazel? I did not find that Harry and Hazel Bugbee had any children, but it is possible I suppose. I would be interested to see what you have regarding Alta so I may investigate that issue further. You can E-Mail me that photo of Harry Winter Bugbee's gravestone if you would like or add it the listing as there is space for 2 more photos and it would be nice to see what that symbol is on that small oblong stone. Thank you for the offer of transferring the other McCowan listings. As it is, my research is focused on the Bugbees and there is probably someone else out there who is more directly related to and able to better research Hazel McCowen's parents or siblings than I. Best to wait for that person to come along and transfer those listings to them I'd say. But thanks anyway. - Allison

Thank you so much for your efforts to record the entire cemetery! Persis' husband has been found...the other two are her parents. I always request a photo when I come across entries because I have found things such as this. I have sent the person that created the site a request for info on how he knows they are there. I am well aware that there is a possibility of poor record keeping and/or burials without stones. I always hope that there will be a stone to get recorded before they become too hard to read. But I am truly grateful for your efforts to try to help! May you be blessed for blessing others.

Hi,
I received a notification that you had fulfilled a photo request for Persis Robinson Brown's site. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=80854335 However when I went to check it, there wasn't anything there. I rerequested a photo. I'm not sure what happened. Thanks for your work on Find A Grave. Have a great day.
