back Hillsborough Center, New Hampshire next

As you may not have guessed, however, Hillsborough Center is a long way from the bustling present-day town of Hillsborough. Only about three miles as the crow flies, but out an old northbound road that seems to carry little traffic and less change. Thanks be to God.

On a misty Memorial Day, 2001, I picked up roses in Billerica, where Hepzibah was born, and decorated her grave. I’d been looking forward to delivering an extensive status report to Grandma, and it seemed an appropriate use of the holiday.
*At that time, I knew that the Vital Records showed her as born in Billerica. Since then, I’ve learned that that part of Billerica is now in the middle of Carlisle. I could have bought the flowers much closer to her birthplace, had I known.
