liam 1 }, born May 5, 1785, in Northwood ; died June 11, 1874,
in East Concord, N. H. ; married April 27, 1806, Dea. Jona-
than 5 Piper, of Stratham, N. H., born Jan. 21, 1781, died
Aug. 3, 1829, aet. 48 (g. s.), in Northwood, son of Jonathan
Piper, of Stratham, born July 31, 1742, and Olive Light, his
wife, of Exeter, N. H., born April 12, 1752. He removed to
Northwood, where he kept a store, and a tavern. Was a Select-
man for six terms, from 1809-1814, a Deacon of the Congre-
gational Church, and a much esteemed citizen. The Piper
tavern was situated on the main highway and turnpike between
Concord and the lower towns, Exeter, Dover and Portsmouth.
The traffic and travel on the road was very great, and as the
tavern was noted for its neatness and excellent fare, it was
much patronized. Mrs. Piper, a very capable woman, contrib-
uted not a little to its success. In 1817, President Monroe
stopped there, and in the summer of 1825, Lafayette and his
escort took breakfast at the tavern while on a visit to Dover
from Concord, and upon their return remained over night.
Daniel Webster, and other great men were often guests at the
Piper tavern.
