Bio Photo 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

Please do not be mean, everyone who has what they won't do for people won't find any assistance from this researcher. Don't horde grave sites. If you are an FAG Nazi think about what you can do for people who are looking for relatives, you have no right to hold family members of any rank hostage. Stop the insanity of the numbers game, please!


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.

James M. Tobey
He is bur in Kittery, ME with his parents. I believe he was married before he m. Sarah A. (Tucker) Straw and may have explained why she and he are not buried together. James died of hepatitis and gastritis which sounds like Gallbaldder to me..maybe ruptured?
In 1890 the medical support was not all that advanced. I read of their son Gilbert's drowning..a probable suicide..no one left of his family...he was 71 and probably lonely and living in the County Farm.
I love all your notes..they make the burials so personal and historical in nature. Keep up the good work.

Hi Pat,

You didn't ask me to remove it - I added a bunch of Kimball's and probably some Hoyt's last year with links and photos, and you were kind enough to delete the originals with very little data. I am not sure how these two Mary Kimballs crossed, but a newby pointed it out with the following "It appears you have accidentally created a duplicate memorial for this person. A link to the original appears below. Can you please delete yours in accordance with site guidelines?"

Thanks for always working so well with everyone, Pat.

RE: Jonathan O. Hunt
Yes, I figured out who Jonathan O. Hunt is, and who Anna Gilman Hunt is.

Oliver Hunt, son of Henry & Rhoda (Titcomb) Hunt, b. 8 June 1782 Gilmanton NH; d. 24 Nov 1857 in Merrimack County NH. He married 12 August 1804 in Belmont NH to Anna Gilman. In 1810 residing in Gilmanton Strafford Co. NH. In 1850 living in Manchester NH.
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FL6V-66B [marriage]

I believe you had her reported as Oliver for a surname. Taint true -- it was Gilman.

Now the above couple had 5 children:
1. Oris Gilman Dudley Hunt (yes says that on his birth certificate) b 11 March 1805 in Belmont NH, and died 27 June 1847 in Manchester NH;He m1) 29 March 1826 in Gilmanton NH to Eunice P. Sawyer, dau of William & Molly (Lane) Sawyer. He m2d) 30 Nov 1837 in Alton NH to Abigail French. Children include: (1) daughter Aurilla B. Hunt, b. 1830 and who m. 25 Oct 1852 in Lawrence MA to Amos P. Drake, son of David & Lydia Drake; (2) son, Jonathan O. Hunt d Apr 6, 1902, age 68 yrs 5 month [b 1833 VT] Jonathan O. Hunt, son of Gilman D. Hunt, m. 27 Sep 1861 in Manchester NH to Persis L. Moulton, dau of Samuel Moulton.
2. +Jonathan T. P. Hunt, b. abt 1810 Gilmanton NH
3. Mary Olive Ann Hunt, b 10 May 1819 in Gilmanton Iron Works NH and d. 25 March 1908 in Manchester NH; buried Valley Cemetery. Physician and suffragist, never married.
4. Oliver Coffin Hunt, b. 1821 NH; m. Jane --. In 1850 an Oliver W. Hunt (age 24, mason) and wife Julia A. (age 22 b. Canaan) living in Manchester NH.

--If you notice Jonathan O. Hunt would be the son of Oris Gilman Dudley Hunt.

Hope this helps sort them out. I've been working on a project about the naming of Hunt Memorial Pool in Manchester--it was named after Samuel Parker Hunt.

RE: WWII Project
Hi Pat,

Thank you very much for letting me know you appreciate my efforts for our WW II soldiers and sailors.

It's an "honor" for me to work on remembering them and all that they gave for us!

As you are probably already aware I'm currently working on soldiers and sailors from Hillsborough County, NH right now. I plan on completing the entire state of New Hampshire on my website within the next two months.

We all lost "way to many" of our brave men during the past in war .... but it is because of what they all did, and went through, that we have the freedom we have now .... Even your uncle by marriage who committed suicide should be remembered with honor since he more than likely did what he did ... because of all that he went through for us!

Thanks My Friend,
Russ Pickett 46575736
