Records of the Center Cemetery in North Hampton, NH
These records were created by Mrs. Wendell B. Folsom of the New Hampshire Chapter, D.F.P.A. (Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America) in 1938 and donated to the New Hampshire Historical Society. This cemetery is still in use so burials after 1938 are not included here. None of these records have been cross-checked at the actual cemetery, so we cannot vouch for their accuracy. In addition, typographical errors may have been made by us in converting them to the web.
