Vandals topple 21 headstones in Hinsdale
"Wednesday, November 12HINSDALE, N.H. -- Police are investigating 21 gravestones that were toppled at St. Joseph's Cemetery sometime over the weekend. Vandals worked their way up the middle of the graveyard, cracking many of them sometime Friday or Saturday. "One of them was damaged severely," said Hinsdale Cemetery Superintendent Lewis D. Major, pointing to a 1,000-pound angel monument that was pushed over, breaking the statue's head and wings. No evidence was left on scene by the vandals. According to Major, the stones were discovered Sunday morning when local residents were on their way to Mass when the vandalism was uncovered. "Why would anyone do that to a graveyard?" said Major. "I've been there over 25 years and that's the first time anything like that has happened in there." The cemetery experienced similar acts of vandalism three weeks ago, when three headstones were knocked over.
Hinsdale Police could not be reached prior to press time."

Lately a couple of single families in my direct line have been giving me one headace after another, so I have been working on a "case study" started it this evening. My first goal is to bring together all of the information I currently have on a single family element, and create a investigation book for that family. This "investigation book" will have copies of ALL material relating to the study target, it will be indexed and sourced.
The next goal is to evaluate and narrow the focus of the information to just the people that are related to the case study. This will allow me to evalutate all notes, article, books, census materials, etc that I have and show the things that are missing and hopefully open some doors. This has work for me before so I'm hopeful it will pay off again. Will keep you posted
