|Bio and Links|
I was born into an old New England family and raised in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. As a youth I didn't know (or care) much about my family history. Now I have been bitten by the genealogical bug, or maybe it was a shark, and it's incurable.|

I dedicate my efforts to those who have been forgotten
I live in Forest City, North Carolina, an 11th generation American and member of the Sons of the American Revolution

Much credit and honor must be given to those who compiled much of the information I've added for the New Hampshire cemeteries. They are Anita Downing for her Pine Grove Cemetery transcription; Beverly MacIntosh for her transcriptions of Woodstock cemeteries and much more; Barbara Avery for her Woodstock Town Records; Lester & Rita (Hammond) Mitchell and The Campton Historical Society for their copy of Campton Cemetery interments and Jane Westfall for her copy of the inventory of interments at The Homeland Cemetery in Bristol. Special acknowledgement and thanks goes to R. W. Musgrove and his "History of Bristol, New Hampshire" for much confirming evidence for those buried in the Homeland Cemetery.
Much heartfelt thanks to all of those who have added to my knowledge of my family history and added photos and additional information to my memorials.
Many many years ago when I was twenty three,
I got married to a widow who was pretty as could be.
This widow had a grown-up daughter
Who had hair of red.
My father fell in love with her,
And soon the two were wed.
This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life.
My daughter was my mother,
For she was my father's wife.
To complicate the matters worse,
Although it brought me joy,
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy.
My little baby then became
A brother-in-law to dad.
And so became my uncle,
Though it made me very sad.
For if he was my uncle,
Then that also made him brother
To the widow's grown-up daughter
Who, of course, was my step-mother.
Father's wife then had a son,
Who kept them on the run.
And he became my grandson,
For he was my daughter's son.
My wife is now my mother's mother
And it makes me blue,
Because, although she is my wife,
She is my grandma too.
If my wife is my grandmother,
Then I am her grandchild.
And every time I think of it,
It simply drives me wild.
For now I have become
The strangest case you ever saw.
As the husband of my grandmother,
I am my own grandpa!!
A million times we'll need you,
a million times we'll cry.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
no one else will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
from the memorial to Anthony Thomas Pellicci, 1929-2009
How soon fades
the tender flower
....from the marker of Ruby Lee, 1917-18
Oh, for the touch of the
A sound of the voice that
from L.M. Capps' marker
Your tombstone stands among the rest, neglected and alone,
The name, the date, are chiseled out in weather-beaten stone.
It reaches out for all to see, it is too late to mourn,
You did not know I would exist, you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are part of you, in flesh, in blood, in bone,
And in my breast there beats a pulse entirely not my own.

|Anita J. Roy Downing||RE: Thanks|
Hoping to do a little more as time goes by. I see some of the stones I cataloged in the 80's are gone. Sad.
My name is Rebecca Lee Phillips Evans. Ollie Mae and Julie Ann were the NC family my father took us to see when I was a child. I have vivid memories of the farm. Uncle Columbus killed the rooster that chased me:)And snapped his false teeth at me on the porch! My father was the only son of Bonnie Ray Wilson Phillips, sister to Julie Ann. His mother (Bonnie) died when he was 10? days old and he spent his childhood being passed around...I have tried to find connections and have pictures of Bonnie as well as original pictures of Big Tom ( one hangs in my living room with him holding a bear cub!) Please contact me? :)

Yes sent the new links.
|John Vail||Timothy Hutchinson|
Thanks for your suggestion.
Please make your linkage request for Timothy Hutchinson to Connie Legasse, creator of Memorial #117563898, as I have deleted the duplicate I created.
|John Wells||McGlew memorial at Homeland Cemetery Bristol, NH|
Thank you for adding my grandparents to this list, John James and Alice Beatrice Wells McGlew. I will try and find a photo I know I have of their stone to add it to the site. Your efforts are much appreciated and I was surprised to even find an entry for them.

Ok, will delete. Born in Laconia as well (1948) but don't think I have any Barnards in my tree but likely related if you go back far enough LOL! Cheers, Beverly

|Donna Bunker||Arthur J Fleury|
I was looking at your memorial for Arthur J Fleury, and I think you have his DOD wrong. You have his life from 1899-1923. He's an ancestor of mine, and I have him on my tree as dying in 1988. He did have a child, Arthur J Fleury Jr., who was born in 1923 and only lived for one month. The baby might be buried with him, so perhaps the records got mixed up. But Arthur J. born in 1899 went on to have 4 more children after 1923, so I'm sure that his DOD is wrong on the memorial.
Was wondering whether you'd consider transferring this memorial over to me to manage? I'm managing quite a number of other Fleury's and would like to handle this one too. Arthur was my great uncle (i.e., my grandfather's brother). Please and thank you!

I'm not sure if you have the documents, but you list this man as a Patriot. Can you tell me where you got this from? I'm trying to prove this, but he's not in DAR or SAR databases. Thanks!
