Regular readers are aware that my spotlight is often on New Hampshire women’s history. My goal for years has been to write at one article a month that is specific to a  woman with New Hampshire connections, often little known. Each story includes a biography, and at least a partial genealogy. Some stories have been about groups of women with a specific theme. This year I wrote nineteen such stories as follows.
