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.

|Ned||RE: I understand the confusion|
Hi Pat !
Sounds like you are a student of the Varick family.
Actually, my main interest is the Hopkins family. Melusina Varick's grandfather was the Rt. Rev. John Henry Hopkins, First Episcopal Bishop of Vermont. Bishop Hopkins was my great-great-grandfather. As you, I try as much as possible to see that the secondary postings (such as you and I would build) correctly represent the primary sources.
Keep up the good work!

|Ned||I understand the confusion|
Sorry about that.
We had two conversations going at the same time:
(1) I had noted a mis-spelling of Remsen Varick's name.(Memorial 75075459)
(2) I was adding information about Remsen's mother, Amelia Melusina Hopkins Varick. (Memorial 75075440)
(Florence) Marguerite Morrill was Remsen's wife. After Remsen died, she remarried Robert Charles Murchie. I thought you were commenting on her death, but you were actually referring to Melusina's death (1942, about which we agree), so my reference to Marguerite mixed the two conversations into one and confused us both.
I hope I've clarified rather than further confusing us.

|Ned||RE: Mesulina Varick|
I agree that Melusina Varick died in 1942. We have three sources: (1) Hopkinsfolk, (2) California Death Index, and (3) NH Deaths & Burials (the last 2 being from FamilySearch.org).
The CA death index identifies her parents (except the mother's surname is spelled wrong). The NH Deaths & Burials identifies her spouse.
I'm confused about where you think we are in disagreement.

|Ned||RE: Varick correction|
Margeurite Morrill Varick was apparently still living in 1945. No further info from the Hopkinsfolk Register of that year.

|Jim S||RE: The Felts in Valley Cemetery|
My grandmother was Eleanor Felt, her sister passed a few years ago and passed along abit of the history addiction. The past few years, I have been tracing the various lines of Felts: Maine/New Hampshire/Vermont/Boston. Betsey and her father are cousin..up a few generations. we both both trace are lines to Joshua Felt 1691 of Casco Bay, Maine.
In any case, I do have a fair amount of research on the line. I would gladly manage the memorials or feed you the information

|niki cotton||Emma M Cotton unknown-1912|
Buried in Valley Cemetery, Manchester, NH. First of all, thank you so much for the grave pics and the info on Elizabeth and Elijah Cotton and their family. I have been doing Cotton genealogy for a very long time.
This is a confusing family. Through census records- 1900 for Emma M Cotton- she is listed as the granddaughter of Elizabeth J. Cotton.
According the NH Death and Disinterment Records of Melissa K. Cotton- her father is listed as E.H. Cotton, no mother listed, HOWEVER, it states clearly she died in 1857 at the age of 26 tears 8 months, which makes her birth year close to her fathers. I'm not sure what that means, but thought I should let you know.
|Rose Moszer||RE: requests Valley Cemetery|
I will send through the transfer requests. Thank you Pat for making it possible for me to find my family members. I will bring life to the memorials you have created.
Stop by once in awhile to see the progress.
|Rose Moszer||RE: Darius Wilson -Hooksett|
Darius Wilson Sr was born in Pelham 26 Jun 1804 and died in Hooksett 8 Dec 1884.
|Rose Moszer||RE: Darius Wilson, Valley Cemetery|
Thanks again Pat for the transfer of family members. I'm hoping next to find where his father, Darius Wilson Sr is buried in Hooksett.
To be continued....
|Snow||John Stephen Snow #103101061|
