Robert HITCHINGS  was the son of Josiah HITCHINGS .. who had migrated that area from New Boston, NH, in 1784.       I am very curious whether Calvin KIDDER traveled to Canada with the HITCHINGS family.

BROWN - BOUTELLE - ORCUTT AMES - STEARNS
Wish to correspond with descendants or people knowledgeable of these Colonial and pre-Civil War Hillsborough County families. Especially need information on an English soldier, named Hodgeman, who prior to 1770 came with two fellow deserters to Lyndeborough Center area, and were hidden and befriended by John STEPHENSON.

His son William BROWN married Tabitha BOUTWELL, of Amherst, and had twelve children, one of whom, Robert (Mary Erving), owned land in the Purgatory Falls area. One of Robert's duaghters - Mary E., married Seth STEARNS. A Betsey BROWN married Rufus ORCUTT about 1816.

WHITE
Great-grandfather Charles F. WHITE was b. 1815, Hillsborough Co., NH (family knowledge). We know from an 1855 "proving up" document on a Washington Territory donation land claim that he had a brother, George H. WHITE, and a sister, Sarah Jane WHITE (he had named as "heirs in law"). We know that these siblings had not accompanied Charles west as his party consisted of wife Elizabeth BUCHANAN, whom he had married in Indiana, a six year old son, Sylvanus, and a brother-in-law, Michael BUCHANAN. I'd be greatly appreciative should anyone have information on that early 1800's Hillsborough Co., NH, family in which Charles F., George H., and Sarah Jane WHITE are included as children.  Mary L.

DARRAH
I have come to a dead-end looking for the surname DARRAH.  To the best of our research, William (L.) DARRAH was born in NH around 1793.  His son, William DARRAH was born in upstate NY in 1830; lived in Ballston, NY; married Anna LORD.  I would love to know about his parents.  There is not much to go on except that a William DARRAH should be listed somewhere in NH around 1793-1820.  I am starting with Hillsborough because I do know some DARRAH families did come from there.  Any help, suggestions, etc. would be so appreciated.

VOLUNTEER LOOKUPS


Below are resources which volunteers have graciously offered to consult to aid Hillsborough County, New Hampshire researchers:

If you would like to volunteer your assistance as well, by checking non-copyright protected resources for researchers, please E-mail to Ann, using the subject heading: "Hillsborough County, New Hampshire Lookups".

Look-ups available so far for the towns of Amherst and Lyndeborough, NH

AMHERST, New Hamshire Resources:

Jackie Marshall, genealogy chair for the Historical Society of Amherst, has graciously volunteered to do look-ups in some of the databases she has been working on.  The databases are listed below.  Please respectfully LIMIT your request to one or two names at a time.

1.  Amherst, NH Births, Marriages and Deaths, 1884-1903:
Description of database:  Vital record information from the Amherst Town Reports from 1884 to the present.  So far, Jackie has already indexed the births, marriages, & deaths from 1884 to 1903.  If you are looking for births, marriages or deaths after 1903, please specify a close, approximate date when requesting a look-up.
Contact:  Jackie Marshall
Please note: The information contained in these records varies through the years as to what is included in the town report. It is a secondary source, subject to error, but a good indication for family researchers that there will be further information at the Town Hall or state vital records office.

2.  Names of out-of-town residents buried in Amherst, 1884-1952:
Description of database:  Jackie has indexed the existing names of people who died out of town & were brought to Amherst for burial (when the Town Reports have this listing, which isn't every year) from 1884 to 1952. The information for the out-of-town deaths is highly variable, sometimes just a name, sometimes the place where they died, and sometimes more.  Contact:  Jackie Marshall
Please note: The information contained in these records varies through the years as to what is included in the town report. It is a secondary source, subject to error, but a good indication for family researchers that there will be further information at the Town Hall or state vital records office.

3.  Cemetery Inscriptions for Cricket Corner Cemetery, Chestnut Hill Cemetery, Meadow View Cemetery and Amherst Town Hall Burying Ground.
Description of database:  An on-going cemetery survey project is underway, and plans are being made to post the completed index online.  Jackie has offered to look-up information in those completed by volunteers thus far.  She writes:  "So far we've recorded 2,466 burials from the following Amherst cemeteries: Cricket Corner, Chestnut Hill, and Meadow View. The Boy Scouts Troop 22 finished the Chestnut Hill cemetery, my daughter & I finished the Cricket Corner Cemetery, and Meadow View has a ways to go but is certainly well over 3/4 complete. I haven't entered the Amherst Town Hall Burying Ground in the data base yet, but have an index on hand. This cemetery has been transcribed in the past and I'd like to double check the stones. St. Patrick's cemetery still needs to be done."
Contact:  Jackie Marshall

4.  Jackie Marshall's Family Tree Maker File of Amherst Families
Jackie's description of database:  "First I entered all the families that Daniel F. Secomb recorded in the genealogy portion of his book, History of the Town of Amherst, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire [1883]. I've been adding to the
families using the cemetery information, the town reports, and the census. I've also used some other local town histories. You can't imagine how many differences there are between all these sources! Family Tree Maker lets me put in the multiple birth dates (for example) with each source. It would be up to the family researcher to locate the primary record and make the judgment about which is correct. Usually the differences are slight: May or Mar, Jan or Jun, the date off by a few days, or the year having one year difference. Sometimes it's way out of
the ballpark too. Interesting because it shows us how vulnerable secondary sources can actually be. Add that to the fact that I'm re-copying all this & am also susceptible to making typos (9 instead of 0), there is always room for error, but I think it can be a useful clue tool.  Contact: Jackie Marshall
