History3 - Flanders Baptist and Community Church

This URL clearly shows the beliefs and practices of those people from Lyme, CT who first settled in Marlow. http://www.flandersbaptist.org/history3

You will recognize some of the Marlow names. To see the Marlow reference here, scroll down to look under the heading "Daughter Churches".

This is the most complete picture I have seen in one place about the nature of our first settlers.

The Ebenezer Mack mentioned in this posting may be the father of our first settler, Solomon Mack. The father has been referred to by Solomon as "Reverend". On the other hand, it is also possible that this is "the other Ebenezer Mack," a close relative, the one we believe came to live in Marlow.

Baptist Church located in the Flanders section of East Lyme, Connecticut

Inside a modest, two-story, colonial farmhouse just off Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington, Doris Birmingham opens a creaky, heavy-hinged door, revealing a dank, boarded-up passageway that once led to a functioning basement. Inside the dim cubby, light blares through two small openings that could eas…

1941 Forest Fire

The 50th anniversary program was well publicized. The story was covered by a number of publications including the Keene Sentinel and the Monadnock Shopper News, as well as the NH Public Television show New Hampshire Crossroads, hosted by Fritz Wetherbee.
Ironically, so many people showed up at the local elementary school for the event that the fire marshal had to turn people away. An encore presentation was given the following week for those who missed it.

[Editor’s note: Katrina Fahy has written a number of posts on researching her Scottish, Irish, and German ancestors. Some of her techniques – and successes – are excerpted below.] From Finding William Muir: When I began working as a genealogist, my mother expressed great interest in learning more about her father’s family: the Muirs. While she had much information on her mother’s side of the family, which was quite large, she knew little about her father’s side of the family beyond her grandparents, so I began there… [ 918 more words. ]

From Tom Britton, grandson of Edward Levi Britton (who was Alisson - Alice - Britton's brother), I got a disk full of photos. I
thought you'd like to see these: 1. Alice Britton 2. Edward Levi and his wife Cora Reed. 3. Reed Farm. Sent by Maria Baril.

Alice Britton became Marlow's lady stage coach driver with a route from Marlow to Concord to Keene and back to Marlow. After the stage coach route was no longer used, she became Marlow's school bus driver. She died in 1933.

Who can tell me about the blacksmiths in Marlow ?
I have in my possession somewhere around 100 78 RPM records. Most are from the 30s and 40s. I listened to a few and it was interesting to hear them sing about World War II related events. I have not properly stored these. Some are no better than just decoration other still play well. Would the Marlow Historical Society want these? If not any history buffs with an old record player might find these interesting. I'm giving them away for free. I would like the Historical Society to give a yay or nay before I take individual request.
We got a call from a man in Washington State who has ties to Marlow Historical Society and he was wondering what happened to the Marlow Historical Society website. I am assuming that someone else grabs up the domain name as it is now tied to some organization outside the US. Please advise.
