REGARDING FAG PHOTO POLICY ... NO PHOTOS FROM OTHER WEB SITES, THIS WRITER HAS PERMISSION OF THE DIRECTOR OF THE MANCHESTER, NH HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION TO USE THEIR ON LINE PHOTO GALLERY FOR THE PURPOSES OF DOCUMENTING THE INDIVIDUALS OF MANCHESTER WHICH THIS WRITER IS DOCUMENTING AND UPLOADING TO FINDAGRAVE.COM|
Currently photograhping/researching the Valley Cemetery in Manchester, NH. This cemetery was the first public cemetery in the City. The first burial was in July 1841. It is now closed, as there is no longer any space. One must be a blood relative of a grave owner to be buried there. Therefore, no money is generated for care. There are a few Rev War, Sp AM, many CW soldiers, a few from WWI and WWII, Korea and one soldier from Vietnam.
I have added many names from this cemetery, it may look like numbers issue but it is to ensure that an appropriate history, if there is one can be documented by my having ownership and that stones can be uploaded and any information will stand as the love and respect I have for the residents of this fading jewel. If I can find no info or there is no stone, I will document such. I have loved this cemetery for almost 50 years and I will transfer outside the fag guidelines. I am not one to add names without doing research but unfortunately an individual was doing such and was asked to stop and or transfer and the person didn't respond.
The founders of the city of Manchester, and the robber barons of the numerous mills, as Manchester, NH, was at one time the manufacturing capital of the World, are residents of this lovely Victorian Cemetery.
The cemetery is essentially divided into two parts with the "Valley" dividing it. There is one Street that hosts many of the wealthy, however most of the cemetery can have a lot of a millionaire and a mill worker in the next lot. It is a beautiful garden style cemetery fashioned after Auburn Cemetery, in Massachusetts. The 19.4 acres was donated by the Amoskeag Mfg. Co to accommodate the growing city, as church cemetery's became overwhelmed, and laws went into place regarding burials.
This writer is hoping to generate interest from the City and vounteers to keep this cemetery cared for and too show pride for the history of the residents of this beautiful resting place.
Will assist with photo request for Manchester, Goffstown, Hooksett and perhaps So. NH, please let me know what area so I can see if I can assist. Also, if you find any errors in what I have submitted please advise, I carefully research information before adding it to the internet but old records can be tricky. Thanks for understanding.

Thanks so much for the transfer of Walter and Tola's memorials. I have updated their records and will continue to maintain them. I really appreciate your help!

I've now found that the Svenson family left Sweden on May 31, 1882 (cf. Gothenburg, Sweden, Passenger Lists, 1869-1951: Johann Svenson 42, Charlotta 37, Hedvig 16, Hjalmar 11, Arthur 2). Their two older daughters (Hulda 1857-1936 and Amanda 1860-1936) are not reported in that record, though Census info shows that they also emigrated about then.
Thanks so much for the transfer of Mehitable's memorial! Yes, if you could transfer the rest of her family that would be great as well. They will be well taken care of. :-)
I appreciate all your help!

You're welcome Pat! It was a compelling story and deserved to be remembered.
|Rick Weaver||RE: 95432218 Valley Cem|
I've been able to decipher it. I can't spend any more time on it right now but I'll have something for you by end of day.
|Michel Bédard||RE: Charlotta Swenson|
No problem. Thanks for the correction. Appreciate all your hard work.
|Michel Bédard||Charlotta K Anderson Swenson|
Helping a distant cousin, and wondering just how you found the name "Anderson" for Charlotta K Swenson (#81043779). I am not able to track this down.
|James Harrison Turner||RE: Thomas O Lincoln - Valley Cemetery|
Thank you for the offer to transfer, very much appreciated. I hope to do justice to their memorials. Good luck with your research.
|James Harrison Turner||Valley cemetery|
I believe that memorial #95466865 "Thomas Lincoln", represents the plot of Rev. Dr. Thomas Oliver Lincoln, D. D. and family.
His first wife, Malvina B. (Wellman) Lincoln and two of their four children were buried in Manchester, N.H.
Rev. Lincoln was a well-known albeit itinerant Baptist clergyman. He remarried the widow of my cousin John Dykes (Mary Alice (Buncher) Dykes-Nixon, eventually settling in Cumberland county, New Jersey, where he died in 1877. His second wife is buried there.
There was certainly one son of this first marriage named Richard F. (Fletcher) Lincoln, and another named Howard Malcolm (your Marshall?) Lincoln.
I don't believe the two "Grace Lincolns'" you have at Valley cem. relate to this family group.
I have already formulated a memorial page for Rev. Lincoln, and have him in the "unknown burial location" section. I do hope his true whereabouts can be confirmed.
