Merrimack County Volunteers

 

 

 

Thank you all for contributing to the Merrimack County GenWeb site. If you have information to share and would like to join us, please email us.

The following are Merrimack County volunteers able to assist you with the following information:

Ian Zaenger Has graciously offered to look up in "Historic Cemeteries of Henniker, NH".He also has other Henniker info that he hopes to make available as well.

Virginia G. Laplante (Ginger) Volunteer Curator Canterbury Historical Society. I am willing to do lookups for people in Lyford's History of Canterbury, NH. It was published in 1911 and is half geneology and half history up to that date. She also can lookup information in the archive holdings of the Canterbury Historical Society.


Ruth Speed Lives in the Penacook / Boscawen NH area. She has a large amount of material on the area including, histories, town reports, city reports, old pictures, and many old newspapers. I would be happy (as time allows) to do look ups for people, on this area.


Helen - I would be glad to look up any records for the town of Hooksett. I am inputting all the vital records for the town from 1822 to the present. I am willing to help anyone find a limb of their family tree. I also do research at NH Vital Records.

Magdalena Gorrell Guimaraens I have transcribed most of this document on my FTM and would be happy to do look-ups in the following:
I have just found a thick, neatly typed document in my father's files, obviously prepared by a professional genealogist or someone almost so. This document was left to him by his Aunt Edith TILTON GORRELL MOULTON on her death in 1954. (Edith was niece to George Henry TILTON who worked very closely with Francis TILTON in the preparation of his book and whose photograph appears on p. 50 of the said book. Edith herself was very interested in the family history and took her research most seriously.) The dates on the upper right-hand corner go from Apr '52 to Jan '53, presumably when the document was typed. There is no indication who typed the document or of any sources. Having said this, the document is extremely detailed, giving places and dates of birth and death, names of spouses and of spouses parents and their place of origin, no marriage dates, however, names and dob/d for children, spouses, etc., etc. Beginning in 1793 and ending Dec 1952. It would appear that this was prepared as part of a follow-up chapter of one branch of the TILTON family had Francis TILTON and heirs continued with the original book. List of Surnames - Almost entirely NH with a few MA + NY

BACHELOR, BADGER, BENOIT, BENOIT, BENT, BRAUN, BROWN, BUSIEL, COE, COLE, CONROY, COOK, CURRER, EASTON, FOX, GEORGE, GILMAN, GIROUARD, GOODHUE, GORRELL, GREEN, GUY, HAM, HARRINGTON, HUNTRESS, JENKINS, KIRK, LADD, LAMPREY, LOCKE, MOULTON, MULLEN, NUTTER, OSGOOD, PINKHAM, PRESTON, RAMSDELL, RANDLETT, RUSSELL, SANBORN, SENTER, SLEEPER, STILES, SWAIN, TILTON, TIMMINS, WHICHER, WHOLLEY
New Hampshire Locations mentioned (great majority Laconia births and deaths) Cass Hill, Meredith , Center Harbor , Concord , Gilford , Gilmanton , Laconia, Loudon , Manchester, Northfield, Sanborton , Strafford, Tilton. As most of Stephen and Julia's children went with him to California (in 1859 he represented San Mateo County in California State Legislature), the document also goes into great detail of their Californian
descendants. Their names are too numerous for me to go into here. Locations are primarily San Francisco, San Bruno, San Mateo.

Cheri Wilkinson Books I own about Boscawen

"150th Anniversary of the Settlement of Boscawen And Webster, Merrimack, Co., N.H., August 16, 1883." (I'm currently transcribing the 91 page segment of this book which lists births in the town from 1733 to 1850.

A partial copy of a typed transcript titled "Genealogical Abstracts from the Records of the 2nd Church of Christ in Boscawen, Organized September 10, 1804 (Now known as the Corser Hill Church of Webster), Abstracted by Helen Loring Barnes, Typed by Franklin C. Thompson, no copyright notice. One copy is in the Family History Library in Salt Lake. The original is in the New Hampshire Historical Society Library. It appears to have been donated to the FHL in December 1959. This little booklet contains Baptisms, Marriages, Deaths and Dismissions - a veritable gold mine of info. The booklet is 41 pages in length. I have a copy of 26 of those pages.

"Genealogy of the Corser Family In America" written by S.B. G. Corser, printed by Ira C. Evans Co, Concord, NH 1902.

"Chronological Register of Boscawen, In the County of Merrimack, and State of New Hampshire from the First Settlement of the Town to 1820", by Ebenezer Price, A.M., Pastor of the Second Church in said town, printed by Jacob B. Moore, Concord, 1823.

In addition, I've a number of deeds of trust involving FITZGERALD family members and other inhabitants of the town. And, of course, many other files which mention my FITZGERALD's, CORSER's and other inhabitants of Boscawen. The CORSER's were involved in a number of lawsuits which I have copies of..

Gail Dreher I would be happy to help do research for anyone that might be connected to my Elliot(t)s or for anyone that thinks I may be able to help them. My resources include the books, "The John Elliot Family of Boscawen New Hampshire" by Henry Ames Kimball, pub. 1918, Rumford Press, Concord, N.H., "From The King's Plantation to Hometown Heritage, Boscawen and Webster, New Hampshire" by Walter Theo Silver and Linnea Statig Silver, pub. 1997, Peter E. Randall Publisher, Portsmouth, N.H.. I also have many files and surnames I have collected while building my family tree.


Don Davis I would be glad to volunteer to help others do research. I have the following: The History of Sutton,New Hampshire by Augusta Worthen; A History of the Town of New London, New Hampshire, by Myra Lord; Mirror to America by J. Duane Squires (this is a history of New Londson during the first half of this century); A Glimse of the Past by Florence Langly (this is a brief history of Wilmot). I also have access to numerous other sources of Sutton history as I am the president of the Sutton Historical Society
