GRAVE STONE RECORDS

From the ancient Cemeteries in the town of

Claremont, New Hampshire.

INTRODUCTION.



An increasing interest in famil\ history and yenealugv has caused numerous
inquiries concerning early families of Claremont.

In many instances no replies can be made for lack of evidence that the
parties were buried here. No town records of death exist prior to 1846. Many
of the stones have already become so weather beaten that it is with difticultv
they are transcribed, and a few years will entirely obliterate them.

Believing that a printed record of these will be of service to posterity as
well as of value to the historian and genealogist, a transcript has been made of
all the stones in the West Claremont churchyard, the village burying ground,
the Jarvis yard, and all prior to 1S46 in the Catholic cemetery. The town
records gi\'e dates of deaths of all interments here since that year.

The usual couplets and verses upon the old stones have not been copied
unless they in some way give facts worth recording. In other words the record
is a plain statement of facts with such notes as it has seemed proj^er to add for
reference or information.

To this transcript it is not proposed to add any extended notes. In some
instances, however, items are introduced regarding the native place, and service
as soldiers or public officials. Whenever the maiden name of a wife or widow
is known, but does not appear on the stone, it is inserted in parentheses.

The usual abbreviations will be used, omitting inmost instances the words
"died," and "aged."

The names are arranged alphabetically for easy reference.

THE OLD BURYING GROUND. CLAREMONT

MLLAGE.

The first mention of this yard occurs in (lie town rccurcls as follows :
"August 27, 1 79J. Voted to give off the school lot two acres of land lor a
Ikirying yard near the meeting house.

"Voted — to acce]it a highway from .\tkins i'.ridge (now called the iipin r
bridge) to the meeting house through James Strowbriclge's land.

"^'oted — to exchange one acre and two rods of land olf of the school Ini
\o. 29 with Mr. Samuel Whipple inv one acre and \\\u rods of land on whieh
the meeting house stands.

"March 31, iSoi, Mr. John Whitty was appointed sexton [n dig graves in
the Burying yard near the meeting house.

"March ij, 1S04. Voted — That a hearse and harness be pidcured foi' the
Hurying yard by the meeting house and also one for the church burying yard."

1!\- reference to the town treasurer's accounts it is found that tliese hearses
were built by William Rhodes at a cost of S1S2.61, and that Capl. 'riniothy
Munger was paid ,'^63.00 for a hearse house.
