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.]
