RE: hello
Yep, it's your Mom's friend Kevin. Most of my relatives are in Forest City Cemetery, but I search through others as well. I'll be heading back to Florida after Fryeburg Fair.

RE: Dexter Lineage
Hello Donna. Isaac and Keziah (Wing) Dexter are also my 6th great-grandparents. Which of their children do you descend from? I descend from Freeman Dexter who married Polly Thurston.

RE: Nathalie Conant Corrigan
I'm not related to the Conant family. I transferred Nathalie (Conant) Corrigan's memorial to you for management because you are related. I'm hoping you can learn where she is buried and can add the cemetery information in place of "burial unknown" on her Find a Grave memorial.

RE: Dexter Lineage
My friend is the Dexter/Coffin;
Thomas came with the Winthrop Fleet in 1630 he did go to the Plymouth Colony and lived in Barnstable in 1658.
He had a son Thomas b in England m Elizabeth. d 19 March1714 settled in Sandwich. Somewhere along the line he started a thriving business. He had a son William who had a son Benjamin who was the father of Thomas. Benjamin had a son Samuel that the Dexters in Ct. stem from.
thomas Great grandson Seth took the business to Windsor, Hartford, Ct that Thomas had started in 1767 and stayed in the Dexter family til 1988.
When the Dexter died he left it to his son in law and his son Seth. HR Coffin married Juliet Dexter. The last one to own the Dexter Corporation (which still bears its name) Arthur Dexter Coffin one of the orginal owners died this past year in Windsor, Ct. He had a summer home here in NH and so does his daughter.
One of the Seth's was a deacon and was 75 when he died. Seth and his wife Elizabeth had a son Constant who d Oct 26, 1785 29 yrs old

What makes this family interesting is that Samuel's son's Seth and Samuel seemed to marry into families that take one up to Moses Dexter and he went to Vermont and there are Dexter's there now and in Maine and NH along with Ma.

There is a history online of the Dexter Corpration and I think that you would find it very interesting.
My friend has a brother who lives in Ct.

The Coffins go back to Tristram Coffin who came from England to Plymouth, Ma. Then one of them married into my Davis clan. And a one of Coffin brothers went to Nova Scotia where my Aunts father William H. Coffin was born and came to Ma.

It seems I end up with connections to just about every body. LOL Not bad for an old lady of 82 yrs.

I am a Smith by marriage, but have done Ed's Smith's back to 1425 to Richard b 1425 in England and he died 17 May 1526 in London.
He had a son John b 1485 d 1538 Corsham, Wiltshire.
Most of these Smith's are from everywhere by the looks.
Ormskirk, Polstead in Suffolk, St Margaret, Ipswich,Epworth, Lincolnshire,Norwich, Norfolk and looks as tho they stayed in Norfolk area from
1587 when this John came to Boston, Ma with his 3 sons in 1635.

As for Uncle George he and my Mum were Porters.
And yes I do have a listing of some of the Canterbury cemetaries. Most of York Co. and the Upper and Lower in Meductic.

Meductic is where my Mum and her brothers and 2 sisters grew up. One of her sisters drown in the St. John River. I spent many a summer in Meductic and down in Springfield. Was over to Rushagonis 2 yrs ago to see my cousins Ruby and Rankin.

I will see what I can do.

Dot (Moss)Smith from NH
