My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Two Cemeteries, Three People for Tombstone Tuesday

The three cemetery stones were photographed last year, in two different cemeteries, quite a distance from each other, but on the same day. I am not sure of the Stevens relationships in North Andover. The Newhall line might be mine, but I don't have the connection yet to my Malden line.

May the 27th, 1776.
Aged 34 Years.

Susanna Newhall was buried in the Salem Street Burying Ground in Medford, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts. The Find-A-Grave site has a photo as well.

With regard to Kate Hastings Stevens, she lived in the large house with mansard roof behind the Burying Ground. She was a descendant of John Stevens, whose replica grave stone is nearby. Website of North Andover Historical society has information about her role in preserving the Old Center of North Andover, including this burying ground. Regards, Kathy Stevens
