"WORKERS ON NEW ROAD DIG UP OLD CASKET, 7.1939, LEBANON, NH.
Workers putting in a new piece of road on Rt. 4 between here and Mascoma, recently came across the remains of a casket and some bones of a human being in excavating near the Sanville place on the left side of the old road. investigation proved that the remains were those of Mrs. Thomas Manchester, buried more that 70yrs. ago. She was the stepmother of Mrs. Eugene Downs of this town and at the time of her death in early spring, the roads were in such condition as to make it impossible to drive to Rudsboro, in the town of Hanover, where the Manchester lot was located, so her body was buried not far from her home. The remains were placed in a small casket, and buried again not from the spot where they were found but out of the way of the new highway."
These were the remains of Thomas Manchester's second wife:
Mary (Slack) Rand. They were married: 12.17.1874 in Lebanon and Mary died shortly after they were married.
