Omitted in Index of Thurstons — Harvey Nelson, page 440.

A letter dated Stratham, N. H., May 31, 1878, says, — "The old Swamscot bury-
ing-ground, where all the first settlers were buried, has laeen plowed up within a few
years. The gravestones were either broken up or carted away, and used for other
purposes.^ There is no one by the name of Thurston living in town at the present
time." The above shows the singular mutations frequently occurring in regard to
families and names. A century ago it would appear that the principal part of the
place was owned by Thurstons, and the enterprise and activities of this whole re-
gion were almost entirely in the hands of persons of that name.
