Cemeteries - A Work Compiled by Lu Dawn Ross During her Searches for Fassett & Other Relatives Long Lost - Not to Be Forgotton


July 20 1980

Today I found the graves of Albert’s first two wives, at the Winchester Cemetery at the corner of Forest Lake Rd. and the Richmond Rd., Winchester, New Hampshire.

            Rachel              wife of Albert A. Fassett           died April 30, 1857

            Abby                wife of A.A. Fassett died April 16, 1860

                                    Age 27


On July 26, 1980 I was able to read the following on Abby’s gravestone:

            Life is like the budding flower,

            When killed by frost e’er it blooms,

            So death shows it’s mighty power,

            And hastens loved ones to the tomb.

On July 30, 1980 I found the graves of Abbie’s and Harriet’s paernts, and two of their sisters at the far end of the road where Abby and Rachel are buried.  Also, there were those of two of their sisters.
