I have been retired for about a year (2008)now but not of my choice Wall Street sucked the heart out of this country and most of the world but I enjoyed over 45 years working as a civil engineer on many Military and Civilian projects. In retirement I began to go look over my parents Photo Albums and Shoe boxes and began my second career as a Genealogist and as a result of my research realized there was very little free information on burial records available on the internet. I was searching for my famous uncle Jack Burns and discover his Memorial on "Find a Grave". I was thrilled at my discovery and immediately joined the site and added my father and mother memorials. I also added some of our family photo of Jack at his memorial. I live just outside Boston, MA and I am looking forward to helping out other people find their love one grave site.|

Here is her husband William to add also.
Christian Messenger – Wednesday, 18 December 1861 – Page 406 –
Mr. William Goucher –
Of Victoria Road, Wilmot, died on the 9th ult., aged 76 years, and leaving 7 children. Mr. G. was a remarkable trophy of divine grace. He lived upwards of forty years in utter neglect of religion, and in entire unconcern respecting his everlasting welfare. During the extensive revival that occurred in this region about thirty-three years ago, a brother, Oliver Brown, who had recently obtained hope in Christ, was strongly exercised with an anxious desire for the salvation of his old associate, William Goucher. Under this influence he visited him, and suddenly accosted him, while chopping at his own door, with the exclamation, “I have a message from the Lord for you.” He proceeded to give him a most solemn warning. – Mr. G. immediately dropped his axe, and went into his house under pungent conviction. An awful sense of his sin and danger seized him. – After a season of keen anguish of spirit, he obtained strong consolation through faith in the Saviour. He then became a member of a Baptist Church, and subsequently walked in fellowship with his brethren to the close of his life. Though he was far from being free from infirmities, yet the reality of the change wrought in him, was apparent to all his acquaintances. As the day on which the remains of our departed brother were interred, was so rainy that his relatives and the people in general could not assemble for public worship, a sermon was preached on Lord’s day, the 1st inst., by the writer, for the improvement of the occasion, from Isa. lvii. 1, 2. “The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart; and merciful men (men of piety) are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come,” &c.

In Wilmot 1 Cemetery, your memorial 121289166 is for Mahitable Goucher.
Here is her obit, you can copy and paste this to her memorial.
Christian Messenger – Wednesday, 27 January 1858 – Page 30 –
Mrs. Mahetabel Goucher –
Died in Upper Wilmot, Jan. 6th, Mrs. Mahetabel, wife of Mr. William Goucher, aged 63 years. Mrs. G. was the mother of fifteen children. As a parent she was attentive and kind, as a wife, dutiful and affectionate, as a neighbour, pacific and obliging, and as a Christian, devout and spiritual. During the long period of her membership in the Baptist Church of Lower Aylesford and Upper Wilmot, she lived in perfect harmony with all the members, and was beloved and esteemed by them. Her last sickness was of only about a week’s continuance. The Pastor, on visiting her found her, as in former scenes of affliction, cheerfully resigned to the will of God, and steadfast in her reliance on the Rock of her Salvation. When her husband perceived that she was near the close of life, he said to her, “Do you know that you are dying? Her answer was to this effect: -- “Is this dying? I had thought it was a dreadful thing to die; but it is very easy. I have no fears, and no distress.” She then repeated the beautiful and appropriate lines of Dr. Watts,
“Jesus can make a dying bed
“Feel soft as downy pillows are,
“While on his breast I lean my head,
“And breathe my life out sweetly there.”
She requested that the whole hymn should be sung at her funeral. Thus peacefully did this valued sister in Christ depart from the scenes of trial on earth, to enter, as we are assured, the mansions of rest in heaven. At her burial a discourse was delivered by the Pastor, to numerous relatives and attached friends, from 1 Cor. xv, 26. “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.”

I attended church with Norman and his wife in El Paso. Most Wednesday nights we sat at the same table for Wednesday night supper and prayer service. He was not her first husband. Joanna's first husband was from Mississippi, my home state. So that is how we first made a friendship. But we always had intersting conversations. Norman was very quiet and let Joanna take the lead many times. But if I asked him questions about his life and previous work he would open up and asnwer gladly. They had some health priblems and I will be glad to shar some personal things with you about his last few years but i dont feel comfortable doing it here. Email me on my oersonal email if you like. firstname.lastname@example.org

TY for the lovely pic and for the edit material on Sara. I have a Kimbrough connection, but no info on the Dodges and it appears they are a primary interest for you! Would you like me to transfer Sara to you in case you have more to add? I have not even located her mother who I believe was a Frances Theodora. If you'd like to manage Sara just send a request and I will be very glad to transfer. The tombstone is in bad condition but is on my list to check for next photo trip so possibly I can place a better picture at that time. Thanks, Sandi

|Robert Davis Purple Sr.||Norman Dodge|
Have you connected with Norman Dodge, also a Find A Grave member (46853609).
He lives in Washington state and comes east to do genealogy research. He has loads of info on Dodge family members and knows of a website devoted to the family.

I came across an obit for Oldham Gates.
Will you add it to his memorial?
Christian Messenger - Wednesday, 07 June 1865 - Page 182 -
Oldham Gates -
Of Farmington, Wilmot, was called home on the 22nd day of May, 1865, at the age of 67 years, leaving a widow and a number of children, with numerous other relatives and friends, to mourn their loss, indeed, but to enjoy consolation from the assured hope of his gain. Brother Gates united with the Baptist Church many years ago, and continued to be an esteemed member of it to the close of his life. He was a man of prayer. His demeanor in his family, in the Church, and in the community, was remarkably upright, pacific, and kind. During his protracted illness the assiduous attentions of the widow now bereft, and the remarkable kindness of his grateful and affectionate children, of whom some came from Boston, Bridgewater, &c. to sympathize with him, and to promote his comfort, tended greatly to console and cheer him. He was enabled to endure his sufferings with much patience and fortitude; and his end may be truly said to have been “peace.” – Communicated by Rev. C. Tupper.

If there are memorials I have posted and you are a family member, just request a transfer and I'll be happy to do it. I'm not very active on Find A Grave now to I check in once in awhile.
