Edward and Laura Dodge lived for a time in Stoddard, New Hampshire. They built a home near the bottom of a mountain which later was sold to a friend. They then built another home higher up. On the left, is the foundation of the first home. On the right, great grandson, Norman Earnest Dodge shows us the cellar hole of the 2nd home. The mountain is now overgrown with trees, but when Edward and Laura lived there, they farmed the land, so the view would have been wonderful, looking off to distant hills and mountains, and in the fall the hills would have been ablaze with trees decked out in reds and orange, with a little yellow thrown in for variety.
Edward Blanchard Dodge married Laura Woods and together they had 15 children. A number of them died young. Of the ones that lived, there are many descendants.
