    Definitely strange....

    For all you folks that cannot see it. I was researching Reenacting a Preacher from the early 1800's...
    There is a marker in a cemetary I own for one Isaac Peace...

    Then yesterday on that other forum a gent emailed me with some of the history of Isaac...and his family....

    I seem to have lived a somewhat parallel life to a Isaac Pease ~ who died and is buried on my land. Isaac Peace lived from 1777 to 1873 his marker reads Pioneer Preacher. He was born and raised very close to where I was born and raised, Cape Cod..... He moved to Wilton, Maine and I moved to Wilton Maine. He married a girl from Wilton, I married a girl from Wilton. He lived in the Brown neighborhood..and is buried in that cemetary. I bought a good part of that land ~ the Brown neighborhood and own that cemetary...

    The first day I walked my land, I went straight through the woods and found that cemetary, it is in the middle of my property and had been not maintained for perhaps 100 years. I walked in and stopped at a headstone that was overturned and buried, bent down dug it up and righted it(it was Isaac Pease)...and for the past four or five years have been restoring the graveyard. Just seemed drawn there and thinking it needed doing.


    I had no idea....about his history...
    Time to find out more, I guess...

    Unbelievable just unbelievable. How many people are buried on your property. next question what the heck you doing buying some property without knowing there are people burried on it. Seems like they are suppose to disclose this to you. next what are you going to do. i mean i guess its pretty cool your looking up who these people were. I think it would be good to try and locate thier kin. It would be neat to be able to contact someone and say your great great great grandfather is burried on my land. Wow i think we need some pics i saw the ones on the other site. but give us some pics of what the grounds look like the whole view. you got me interested. Gary is on vacation right now. When he gets back you need to contact him on this. He is pretty good on history he could probably help you find out some stuff.

    scrat,

    Over sixty markers, many are no longer legible. There are markers with big trees growing around them. The last folks were buried in the 1860/70s and some of those headstones are for Captains, etc...making one wonder if they were not Civil War casualties....

    Raining here and will wait for a sunny day to take pics of the whole cemetary...but here are a couple of stones...

    That's wild. I was hunting one of the local WMA's this spring, and I happened across a Civil War era gravestone, got pics somewhere. (Chickahominy, for those in VA)

    There must be a really interesting history about your spread.:) Sounds like it could be a fun project to take on.

    I just signed up for membership, still waiting for approval.

    I just HAVE to see this! This kind of stuff interests me greatly, as I am into surreal and paranormal things myself.

    So...., your life is very similar to the preacher's

    You walk on the land for the first time, and find his marker, overturned, and right it, and now you are restoring the cemetery...,

    So what's it like knowing what your name was in a previous life? :what:

    interesting is the fun half of this situation: you bought the land and come to find that there are a lot of people hiding out under ground and playing dead to avoid paying rent? and they are claiming squatters rights since they have been there for more than a hundred years and refuse to leave now. now, you being spiritually inclined towards one of them is of great interest. here in connecticut we have olde newgate prision. they give you anymore trouble, you just send them here. we can keep them underground for you.
    +1 on strange coincidences.
    any kids (names?) from his marriages? yours?

    Gizamo, many Revolutionary War Veterans settled in Maine after the war. They were given land for their service to the country. Please look for any "Prescott" stones. That would give me a reason to come see you and that "Fitz" I like so much.

    Here is a some more info that was provided to me over on MuzzleloadingForum...
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    here is a little more info on your Issac Pease:

    He was born Sept 11 in Edgartown, Mass.He was married to Temperance Moore on Oct. 16, 1810 in Wilton, Maine. He had five children all born in Wilton Maine:

    Dorcas Temperance Pease
    Joanna Pease
    Stephen Pease
    Sewell Samuel Pease

    Sewell died in 1892

    you might use this information in searching for Issac.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

    As to any names being similiar, my given name is Stephen....as is one of my son's
    And we have 5 Children...

    And a pic of one side of the cemetary.....

    I portray a post civil war circuit rider for churches and such. I've got some books i'll look at to see if I can find the name.

    If you are interested in portraying an 1800's preacher, I'd suggest getting "Bible in Pocket, Gun in Hand". They are out of print, but you can still get one from amazon.com....

    My wifes family hails from Wilton. I haven't said boo to her about this...

    Wouldn't it be something if Temperance Moore was related...to her.
    As we also have 5 children.....

    I think it would be awesome to own a piece of land with a graveyard from the revolutionary war. Some things need to be taken care of like that cemetary and who better to do it than someone who appreciates the sacrifice they made. Good luck with your search!

    Pease is a famous name in Texas history. The Pease river runs only a few miles from here.
