Hi All fellow researchers

I need some help.
I've posted messages on genealogy sites looking for information about my g-grandfather.
He is listed in the 1900-1920 census' as Alfred or Fred Currier, living in Maidstone Vermont, b. about 1865.
He was married to Louisa Masters dau. of Benjamin Masters & Dorany or Lorany (Rogers) Masters.
Louisa- b. 1871 NH, d. 1912.

Alfred, Louisa & Alfred's second wife, Katherine or Catherine
along with a young child of Louisa & Alfred are buried in Maidstone,Vermont.

I've acquired a lot of information on my family, but would like to find their marriages,deaths,etc.
Some are buried in Guildhall,VT( Elvira & Elevena with their spouses, married 2 Allen brothers)
Lancaster,NH and Newport,NH.

The question I have ,is if anyone can look at either the tombstones or find a record
of Alfred's burial or death record. He died 1948. I would like to know what it says on
the tombstone or maybe something in the town history of Maidstone.

The reason for this is that I just got confirmation that his name may be listed as Carrier.

I cannot get a copy of a death record if I don't have his full name.
At some point, the name changed from Carrier to Currier.

I did get a copy of his sister's death record from NH last week. Is says she was born to Joseph
& Angele (Lavertu) Carrier(Currier). I got two different documents, one says Carrier, other says Currier.
I know it was the person who wrote the record as Currier that was wrong, I have his marriage
record which says Joseph Carrier from Quebec, Canada.

I am a g-granddaughter through Alfred's son Amos. Amos was born 1891 in Maidstone.
Other siblings of Amos are: Elevena, Elvira, Hosea, Dana(died @ 2 months), Lewis, Nathan,
Alsina(?sp), all born Maidstone, VT.
My father's brother, Kenneth was also born in Maidstone,Vermont. Our name is Currier.
