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.

Great minds think alike Pat!
|Bill and April||RE: Photo Palmer|
I'm glad we were able to find the cemetery and the headstone you requested. We did post pictures of all but three of the Palmers listed to be there. I hope this helps your research. Best wishes! Bill
