Bio Photo 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.

RE: Nellie Osgood
I appreciate your efforts. I've made note of the issue on the memorial. I'll see what else I can find that may help prove her place of burial.

Thanks,

Bill
