Thank you for your response to the person who inquired about the Leighton family monument in Dover, NH. However, my name is Nancy Auclair (not Ault). It was very nice of you to refer the person to me. My Internet Service Provider sold out to Time Warner Cable, so my e-mail address has changed for anyone trying to contact me. I use the email address: and will be happy to help any Leighton to find their roots. We live about 45 miles from the monument, and only about 30 minutes from Wakefield, NH I believe. We will be happy to take anyone to see the monument in Dover. It is a work in progress, and will probably always be so because the flowers and shrubbery have to be change periodically - they die off or get mowed down. The Simpson's, who own the land, keep the area around the monument mowed and it always looks quite nice. They do this as a courtesy to the Leighton family - they are not descendants of Thomas Leighton. We all owe them a debt of gratitude for allowing me and my husband to take care of the monument and for keeping it mowed with a path to the road so that others can visit. Many thanks for referring people to me. Nancy Lea Leighton Auclair (Kennebunk, ME)
