Records of the Batchelder Family Cemetery, Hampton, New Hampshire>
This cemetery was previously visited by Eaton and Folsom. Inclusive dates: 1823-1900. It is deep in the woods and difficult to find. From the intersection of Timber Swamp Road and Mary Batchelder Road head up Mary Batchelder Road to the top of the slight rise. From the top go left into the woods 50-100 feet and start searching in ever-widening circles. View a map. [Data verified on site in 1986 and in v.2 of Vital Records of Hampton, New Hampshire to the end of the year 1900 by George Freeman Sanborn Jr. and Melinde Lutz Sanborn.]
Deborah Ann daughter of Samuel & Sarah Batchelder Died ----------- Aged 18 yrs. 2 mo. [A badly repaired crack across this stone obscures the date of death and part of the age. The genealogical section of Dow's History of Hampton says she died August 4, 1838, and was born June 8, 1820. Neither Eaton nor Folsom recorded this grave.]
[On one monument.]

[BACK] Thomas W., son of Sam'l and Sarah Batchelder Died at New Orleans, Oct. 1849, Aged 31.
[This monument was tipped over when I found it, so it is difficult to say which side was the front and which the back.]
