Description

Excerpt from Annual Report of the Town Officers for the Fiscal Year Ending December 31, 1996 and of the School District for the Year Ending June 30, 1996
Evelyn Forsyth has been Treasurer for the Town of Gilmanton for more than 12 years. You will find her in the Town Hall a couple of days each week faithfully balancing her ledgers, bank statements and taking care of payments and receipts. This is only one of the various duties Evy has perforated in this town in the more than 60 years she has lived among us. This busy woman has done nearly everything you can find to do in a small town at one time or another.
Evelyn first came to Gilmanton as a child and attended more than one of the one - room school houses. Later she and Harry Forsyth married and settled down on White Oaks Road, where she raised her family of three sons, Ralph, George and Michael. This is where you had seen her every Spring, summer and fall crouched in her garden picking vegetables and weeding. During the early years, she could have also been found taking care of farm animals and selling blocks of ice, harvested from Crystal Lake. These were cut on the lake, transported home, and stored under sawdust in the ice house until homeowners purchased them to keep food cool in summer.
You would also be apt to see Evy anywhere along the many miles of Gilmanton roads in a truck or on a tractor. When Harry was Road Agent, she was always right there, working along with everyone. Before the days of modern equipment Evy used to tow an old grader with a home-built tractor. If there was any repair work going on with the trucks, tractors or sanders, Evy was never far away. Often she was right in the middle of it with her hand in a spot too small for anyone else's.
