HISTORY

     Agnes M. Lindsay was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts on August 11, 1870 (Agnes Morton Snow). She married Edwin P. Lindsay, who predeceased her in May 1925. They owned a summer home for many years in Bridgewater, New Hampshire that they referred to as "the farm" located at the Uplands, Whittemore Point on Newfound Lake.

     Mrs. Lindsay passed away on February 16, 1937.

"Her life was marked by a quiet generosity, seldom equaled. Through others she gave generously to every community project, and many individual needs. Perhaps no better tribute could be paid to her than the fact that those in her employ remained her faithful and interested personal friends."

    As stipulated in her Will, a Trust was established. Agnes M. Lindsay Trust left a great legacy . . .
