RE: Maj. Samuel McConnell #7948743
No problem Veronica. I learned a long time ago that
patience & understanding is the name of the game. I'm not perfect so I guess all us humans are in the same boat. But we sure strive towards it. Just being willing & able to help total strangers with this kind of work has got to be rewarding in one way or the other. I appreciate you responding in such a positive way. There are few fuddy-duddies out there that are in the game of getting the most numbers & don't care to much about us out here at the other end. Their loss. You & your family have a safe & enjoyable weekend. Take care & god bless.

Maj. Samuel McConnell #7948743
Hi! Veronica,

Well Diane Loso has posted the right photo. Sam is definatly a Rev. War Soldier. According to what Rosemary sent you. You have to figure out how to remoove them Good luck with that. I'm just sorry I can't help you. I have never learned how to even post them much less understand how to remove them.
I'll pray that it all works out okay. Just don't get flustered with the whole affair. You can't imagine how greatful I am for all you volunteers out there. Please have a safe & enjoyable hunt out there in those old cemeteries. Take care & God bless.

According to the FAQ, you have to delete the photo on Major Samuel McConnell's grave because you are the one who added it. Roemary

Veronica, Accoding to another F.A.G. Volunbteer photographer the photo you posted on Samuel's memorial is not his but for a John K. McConnell.
Please double check & make a correction. This has been very confusing for me. Thank you for your time & assistance.

Lennox Graves
Hi, Veronica. I was at Holy Rood Cemetery today and fulfilled your request for Leo Lennox. I noticed there was no memorial for Catherine so I created one and added the photos there. If you'd like me to transfer that to you, please let me know.

Added by Ken B on Jul 15, 2013 1:14 PM

Robert Scanlon was born April 16, 1917 and his plot is 2Z, 2473 if you would like to include that on the memorial.

Rev Winthrop Young
Veronica ~ I was tickled to find the photo of the grave marker for Winthrop. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to grant me permission to use this photo in my family genealogy. Many thanks ~ Jo

cleaning tombstones
I'm sorry, I wasn't asking you to clean it. I was just making an observation. The unfortunate thing is...I don't live in New Hampshire and I don't know any of the Clough family that may be living there that I could be related to. Please know that I do very much appreciate the pictures you post.

Joseph and Myra Clough stone
Thank you so much for the photo of the marker of the Clough children, Joseph and Myra. If the Lichen could be cleaned off we would more clearly see the inscription "Chilren of Joseph and Mehitable Clough"
The probably died of the illness since they died a day apart.

I am their second cousin five times removed. I would suppose I am probably related to most of the Clough family there.

Jonathan Hart
RE: Bradbury @ North Forest
Hi Veronica, I am glad to have found it this time down. I had that name with me when I stopped at the cemetery almost two years ago, but forgot to look up her stone. Best wishes, Jon Hart.

Iron star
Sorry to bother you again. I was wondering if you can read the inscription on the iron star at Stephen Clough's grave.

Small Family stones

Thanks for the nice photos of all the gravestones, and all you've done to get this old, formerly unlisted, cemetery on Findagrave.

Wm. H & Sarah Young
Thank you for taking and posting the photos of these YOUNG children who d. so long ago. William's stone, although broken, is legible and the photo you got of it is wonderful.

Added by wvy on Oct 09, 2010 11:38 AM

Veronica, I've looked at the photos of the old stones you posted...WOW.
If you want to add any names that you have photos of, then add and I'll request.Or, if you want me too, send a private e-mail.
Thank you SO MUCH this. Thanks is so small when you did such great work.

I have moved the Winthrop Young graves to the Hackleboro cemetery. I put in a request for their stone photos.
Winthrop/Mary had a large family from writings I've found...Solomon was a son...Otis, Jonathan...about 13 of them, I think. So, likely some of the stones are their children and spouses. Will await your finds.

Hackleborough Found
I just can't tell you how happy you have made me finding this old cemetery!!
I took the photo requests off Canterbury Cem, where I had Winthrop & wife Mary YOUNG,listed.
As soon as you list Hackleborough, I'll transfer them and request their photos again so you can post them. Is it really named Hackleborough?

I would be appreciative if you can enter the other names that you found, and the info about them.
I'll look at them, try to find out some genealogy, etc; showing relationships helps to sort them. Thank you so very much. Let me know when I need to transfer Winthrop and Mary. Wow, can't believe it.

Hackleborough Cem
I found another old online book that had a few people's names as having been buried in Hacklenborough.
But don't endanger yourself if it is wooded, etc. there anyone local that would know anything about it? His wife would have been buried about 1889...maybe it was still in use.
I believe it took a local name because of the road, and possibly goes by another name.
Thanks so much. You're a gem helping me like this.

Found Winthrop Young
You've already done so much, but I found a book "History of the Town of Canterbury, New Hampshire, 1727-1912, Genealogy and appendix" James Otis Lyford...and he stated, Chap. XIV, that Winthrop and Mary are buried in "Hackleborough Cemetery..."
I was so elated to see it in black and white.

However, I could not locate Hackleborough on you know if the name has changed or there is one there now? Probably very old and may be in disuse. If it actually exists, I'd be happy to post it to Find A Grave.

Thanks for any info...

Winthrop & Mary YOUNG
Canterbury Cemetery:
I thank you for searching for their graves; I don't have D/C's and only have a book pub. 1889, with biographical sketches of clergymen of that era, and it said Winthrop [1758-1833] was born and died in Canterbury...then, in Otis surname genealogy, it states that Mary Otis Young, [abt 1750-1848], wife of Winthrop, living into her 90's and when "she died she was buried beside her husband in Canterbury." Their source was "Lineage Book of DAR". I don't know how many cemeteries existed there in 1833, so I can't be certain. Thanks for helping me.

Added by wvy on Sep 18, 2010 4:25 PM

Veronica, is there a possibility you will get over to Merrimack County, NH, to the Canterbury Village Cem? Winthrop Young and wife are both bur. there...I don't know for sure if they have a marker, but it's likely. I have requested photos, but I don't think there are many volunteers nearby. You have a nice photo of the cemetery...thank you for any reply.
