CD: A Memorial of the Town of Hampstead [Rockingham County], New Hampshire, Volume 1


"The citizens of Hampstead have, without exception, given me every possible aid, and with words of encouragement added much to the pleasure of my work…My thanks are also due to all who have aided me in illustrating this volume…The almost speaking likenesses will grow dearer and dearer as the years roll by, while the old homes or a glimpse of the old landscapes about our town, will be a constant reminder…and I trust will serve to intensify the love and devotion for the scenes of their childhood days…I send it forth with the heartfelt wish that it may do something towards fostering that local interest and pride which are powerful incentives to good citizenship."

Harriette Noyes provides the history of the founding of the town, details of the proceedings of the Centennial Celebration, background to the foundation of educational, religious, military, and civic organizations as well as biographical sketches including the following families: Bailey, Bartley, Bragg, Brickett, Carter, Crocker, Davis, Dickey, Eastman, Emerson, Flint, Garland, Gordon, Grover, Hadley, Hoyt, Hyde, Heath, Irving, Jenness, Johnson, Keazer, Kent, Kimball, Little, Marble, Morgan, Moulton, Nichols, Noyes, Ordway, Peabody, Pillsbury, Pressey, Putnam, Randall, Sanborn, Sawyer, Smith, Stickney, Tabor, Tewksbury, Webber, Williams, Woodman and more. She also provides information on births and marriages from the First Book of Records. An everyname index provides easy access to information and numerous illustrations add historical and personal interest.

The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.
