"I know they got married in Danvers Mass so not sure if they moved to New Hampshire for a bit and then back to Massachusetts as they lived in Danvers and finely settled in Swampscott Ma .They had four more children Arnold, George and Gladys did not live past the age of four and are all buried together in the family plot in Swampscott my father was born I believe in 1903 and died in 1945 and he is also buried in the family plot in Swampscott . Can I ask who the Fay is that you found in New Hampshire . William T and Lydia one son William L and a total of five girls Emma born in 1853 but she died in 1861 and is buried alone in Danvers Ma her death certificate list her as Amy I believe it is a typo as she was born Emma Jane and her stone and cemetery record is under Emma Jane . Mary born 1856 ,Angie born 1860 and in 1863 they had another girl and they named her Emma H that creeps me out how they did that and Annette born 1868 . Now Mary Emma H and Annette along with William are buried in the family plot in Swampscott but I am not sure where Angie who died in 1937 is buried she is not in the family plot.
He arrived in Boston, MA on or about 29 Nov 1850]
