Find NH Town Clerk Records On Line



If you haven’t been using the FamilySearch website for your genealogy research, you are missing out on a rich database that is completely free.  This is the genealogy website run by the Church of the Latter Day Saints, using their huge archives of genealogical material stored out in Utah. It is important to sign up as a registered user on the website, to gain access to the scans of primary source material.  Without seeing the original documents you will be limited to transcribed records.
Don’t be afraid of registering on this website with a password.  It is free, and there will be no spam or email from the Mormon church. Just last night I recommended this website to a complete stranger on a Facebook chat about Nashua genealogy.  Along with obituaries she was able to begin her genealogical journey using these records and some New Hampshire vital records found on Family Search.
To discover all the newly available documents online for the state of New Hampshire, click off “United States” on the home page, and then scroll down to “New Hampshire” on the list of states.  You will see a list of nine databases available, ranging from Birth, Marriage and Death records to the latest entry “New Hampshire Town Clerk, Vital and Town Records, 1636 – 1947”.  Note that out of the nine collections, six have a camera icon next to them, signifying that you will be able to see the actual scanned images of that collection.  The town clerk collection was added on 7 November 2012.
To see the collection, you must click on the line “Browse through the 402, 443 images” and pick the county, and then the town you are interested in reading. Since I live in Londonderry, I first went to the Londonderry records to take a peek. The records are not searchable, but you can browse to search for a certain year or for pertinent information.  As volunteers transcribe these records, they will become searchable in the future, just like the vital records.
There are tools on the left for manipulating the image to make it readable (to enlarge it, or rotate it, etc) and choices for saving images and printing.  This is very important if you find a reference to your ancestor in the town clerk records.  You will find elected officers, town meetings, poor lists, tax records, and even some vital records in the town clerk collections. 
If your ancestors and family members lived in other states or countries, this website is rich in records from all over the United States and all over the globe.  I found baptism and marriage records from my husband’s ancestral village in Spain going back to the 1700s!
Recently, genealogist Randy Seaver wrote about how he found his ancestor’s birth record in the Brookline, New Hampshire town clerk records online.  You can read about how he accomplished this at the post titled “Finding Hannah Sawtell’s 1789 Birth Record in the New Hampshire Town Clerk Records” at this link http://www.geneamusings.com/2012/11/finding-hannah-sawtells-1789-birth.html

Weathervane Wednesday ~ A Penny Farthing


Every Wednesday for almost a year and half I've been posting photographs of weathervanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located).  Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weathervanes.  Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #72?  Scroll down to see the answer.



Thanks to a sharp eyed reader of my blog who sent me a message, I found this weather vane in South Londonderry on a private residence.  A new owner had just removed over thirty trees from this property, so the previously hidden weather vane is now visible to passers-by.  It is a great weather vane representing an old type of bicycle known as a "Penny Farthing".  I've always been fascinated by these types of bicycles since I was a little girl and I saw the Mexican actor Cantinflas ride one in the opening scenes of the 1956 movie Around the World in Eighty Days.  It is called a "Penny Farthing" because the old style British coins were a very large copper penny (the front wheel) and a very small copper farthing (the small wheel).   A farthing was worth one quarter penny.

Tombstone Tuesday ~ Damon Family Plot in Honolulu

The Damon Family Plot can be found in the Oahu Cemetery on Nu'uanu Road in Honolulu, Hawaii.  It is a very historic old graveyard, full of some of the first westerners to settle on the island of Oahu.  Families of New England missionaries,  American and other foreign sea captains and merchants, as well as local Hawaiians, Chinese, Portuguese and people from and descendants of dozens of other countries. It was founded in 1844.
The Damon Family Plot
The first time I visited the Oahu Cemetery was to lay flowers and pay our respects at the Dominis family plot with a cousin from Honolulu.  It was on that visit that I noticed the Damon family plot was located right next to the Dominis plot.  On my second visit I was able to spend more time photographing the Damon stones and reading the Damon names.  I was very interested because the Reverend Samuel Chenery Damon not only was the pastor who married Governor John Owen Dominis and Lydia Paki (soon to become Princess Lili'uokalani), but Rev. Damon was from my hometown of Holden, Massachusetts.  He was sent to Hawaii in 1842 by the First Congregational Church of Holden, the same church I attended as I grew up.  I was confirmed there, married there, and my father had his funeral service a this same church.


In memory of
Rev. Samuel C. Damon, DD
Born in Holden, Mass
Feb. 15, 1815
Died in Honolulu
Feb. 7, 1885
Pastor of the Bethel Union
Church and for 43 years
Seamen's Chaplain 
at this Port.

In the cross of Christ's glory
Towering o'er the wrecks of time
All the light of the sacred story
Gathers round its head sublime

Her children rise up and
call her blessed. 


I counted 30 gravestones on this family plot.  I'll list the names below.  I don't know if more Damons might be buried in the same plot.  There are five Damons listed at Find A Grave buried at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific "The Punchbowl".

The Reverend Samuel Damon was not only a minister, but a genealogist, local historian and he wrote a biography of his life. He wrote a book called The Damon Memorial: Notices of three Damon Families who came from Old England to New England in the XVIIth Century in 1882.  He wrote the History of Holden published in 1894 with David Foster Estes.  When I was growing up in Holden I had my first paying job as a page at the Gale Free public library, which is located at the Damon Memorial building.

Roger's Rangers


Robert Rogers, 1727 – 1795

In New England, one of the most interesting roles to play in battles re-enactments is to be a member of Rogers Rangers.  This is a maverick group, and the actors don’t wear colonial uniforms, but buckskins and moccasins like Daniel Boone.   The Rangers became famous fighting in the French and Indian war, chasing the enemy up and down the Connecticut and Merrimack River valleys, which were the major highways of the time.

Robert Rogers was raised in Londonderry, when it was a frontier to the wilderness.  Beyond Londonderry was disputed territory belonging to Indian tribes and the French.   There were no formal schools in Londonderry at the time, and we can imagine when he learned to read and write, it was at home.  He learned to hunt with his Scots Irish neighbors, and to be comfortable in the wilderness.   In 1739 his family removed from Londonderry to near present day Concord, New Hampshire.   His father called his land Munterloney, after a place in Derry, Ireland.  It was later called Dunbarton, New Hampshire.

Rogers became a scout for Captain Ladd in 1746, and when he was a teenage boy.  In 1753 he was mustered into Captain John Goffe’s company.   At the expedition against Crown Point Robert Rogers was named Captain and the Second Lieutenant was John Stark.  Rogers kept journals at this time, which are an interesting view of the war from the frontier.   His troop was now known as “Rogers Rangers” and in 1757 they reconnoitered Lake George by snowshoes, and attacked a wagon train supplying the French.   This was known as the “Battle of the Snowshoes.”  He was wounded at this battle, but highly commended by General Abercrombie. 

Rogers later took his Rangers to the siege of Louisburg, missing the siege of Fort William Henry whilst he was in Nova Scotia.  He returned to Lake George, New York, in 1758 where he lost 114 out of about 200 men.  After many other skirmishes along the New York border, he was at the siege of Detroit in 1763.  He was to be tried for high treason and court-martialed in 1768 due to his mismanagement of Fort Michilimackinac.   However, he sailed for England to escape the trial.  He was feted by the nobility in England, probably because of the wild tales he could tell of life in the wilderness fighting the Indians.

By now he was known as Major Rogers, and earned a large estate in Concord, New Hampshire.  He married the daughter of a Portsmouth minister.  The marriage didn't last, and his wife petitioned for a divorce in 1778, on the grounds of desertion.   She lived with her second husband on the estate in Concord.

He appeared again in America in July 1775 on behalf of the British Army.   The people of the colonies regarded him as a spy, and he was arrested in Pennsylvania.   He appeared in Hanover, New Hampshire where he paid a visit to President Wheelock of Dartmouth College.  He proposed a deal to Wheelock to obtain a grant of land for Dartmouth from the Crown in exchange for aiding him, yet Rogers disappeared the next morning.   He was finally arrested again in New York, and he fought his last battle at Mamaroneck and was defeated by the colonists.   He returned to England and died there in 1795.

Rogers had a romanticized life, portrayed by writers and actors as an adventurer, yet his life ended in disgrace according to the Americans.  The British probably have a different point of view!

Weathervane Wednesday ~ An Historic Old Hall

Every Wednesday for almost a year and half I've been posting photographs of weathervanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located).  Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weathervanes.  Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

Do you know the location of weather vane #71?  Scroll down to see the answer.





Today's weather vane is located on top of the steeple of historic Union Hall on Anderson Road in Windham, New Hampshire, not too far from the Londonderry border and Beaver Brook.  This hall was built in 1880 to help the residents living outside of the center of town.  According to the Windham Historical Society website "it served the literary, social and religious needs" of the population in this end of Windham. It was built by funding shares from local inhabitants. It is still a popular spot for small meetings and an annual Halloween Haunted House event.

Surname Saturday ~ Ball of Watertown, Massachusetts


BALL

John Ball, an English immigrant, settled first in Watertown, Massachusetts where he was made a freeman on 22 May 1650.  He removed to Concord where he lived with his son, Nathaniel until his death on 1 November 1665. 

John’s son, John Ball, went to Nashaway Plantation, later called Lancaster, Massachusetts.  He was one of three men sent to occupy the land.  He was a tailor, and his first wife, Elizabeth Pierce, went insane about 1660.  The court gave guardianship of three children to her parents, and gave his in-laws guardianship of his wife. She died and he remarried to Elizabeth Fox.  They removed to Lancaster where in 1675 he, his wife, and infant son Joseph were slain during an Indian massacre and two other children (Esther and Abigail) were taken captive. The surviving children were probably living with his Pierce in-laws in Watertown.

His son, also called John Ball, administered to his father’s estate after the massacre. He was a weaver, and learned his trade from his grandfather Peirce.

Some sources for researching the descendants of John Ball include the History of Watertown by Henry Boston, 1860, Stone-Gregg Genealogy by Alicia Crane Williams, 1987, and Divided We Stand: Watertown, Massachusetts 1630 – 1680, by Roger Thompson, 2001, pages 1008 – 109.  There is a book The Descendants of John Ball, Watertown, Massachusetts, by Frank Densmore Warren and Mrs. George H. Ball, 1932 available to read online at Archive.org.  There is a fairly accurate family tree at the website www.newenglandballproject.com

One famous descendant of John Ball is the actress Lucille Ball (1911 – 1989).

My Ball family lineage:

Generation 1.  John Ball, born 1585 in Wiltshire, England, died 1 November 1665 in Concord, Massachusetts.  Two children.

Generation 2.  John Ball, born 1620, died on 10 September 1675  at Lancaster, Massachusetts; married Elizabeth Pierce, daughter of John Pierce and Elizabeth Hart, who died about 3 October 1665 in Lancaster. Five children, including Mary Ball who was the second wife of my 7x great grandfather William Munroe.  John Ball married second on 3 August 1665 to Elizabeth Fox and had three more children.

Generation 3. John Ball, son of John Ball and Elizabeth Pierce, born 1644 in Watertown, Massachusetts, died 8 May 1722; married on 17 August 1665 to Sarah Bullard, daughter of George Bullard and Beatrice Hall. Nine children.

Generation 4. Daniel Ball, born 2 August 1683 in Watertown, died 9 March 1718 in Watertown, married on 10 November 1708 to Mary Earl, daughter of John Earl and Mary Lawrence, born 9 January 1690 in Watertown. Two children.

Generation 5. Mary Ball, born 27 December 1709 in Watertown, married on 4 May 1726 in Watertown to Joseph Mixer, son of Joseph Mixer and Anna Jones, born 14 December 1705 in Watertown. Eight children.

Washington Place ~ Needs your help!

Yours Truly, Mom and Husband at Washington Place
built for my 4x great aunt, Mary (Jones) Dominis

Most Americans have never heard of Washington Place.  It is a historic house in Honolulu built by Captain John Dominis for his Boston born wife in the 1840s.  At a time when most people were living in thatched huts, this enormous white mansion became a showplace.  No one knows why Capt. Dominis built such an impressive home, but within a short time of its construction he died at sea in 1846. His widow was reduced to taking in boarders to help cover the expenses of running such a big household.

Mary’s boarders were mostly Americans.  One of her first boarders was Anthony Ten Eyck, the American Commissioner to the islands.  Ten Eyck nicknamed the house “Washington Place” in a letter dated 22 February 1848, on an anniversary of George Washington’s birthday.  The name stuck when King Kamehameha III liked the name and wrote a royal decree retaining the name “in all time coming”.

Mary Lambert Jones was born in Boston on 3 August 1803.  She married Captain John Dominis in Boston on 9 October 1824.  He was a native of Trieste, Italy, which is now in Slovenia.  Mary was the sister of my 4x great grandmother, Catherine Plummer (Jones) Younger.  When she was building the house in Hawaii, she enlisted the aid of her brother-in-law, Enoch Howes Snelling, to send the windows and doors from Boston.  Enoch, a glazier in Boston’s North End, was married to another sister, Sarah Dargue Jones.


The glass in the windows and doors of Washington Place
were sent from Boston by Enoch H. Snelling, husband of my 4x great aunt

For some unknown reason, the Dominises removed from Boston to Schenectady, New York where their three children were born.  Mary lived with the family of Reverend Christopher Yates while Captain Dominis went on many voyages to the Pacific.

 In 1837 they sailed on board the bark Jones to Honolulu, leaving two young daughters, Mary, age 12, and Frances, age 8, at school in Schenectady.  They brought their little son, John Owen Dominis, age 5, with them to Honolulu.   The year after they left Mary died in Schenectady, and in 1842 Francis also died.  Mary Dominis traveled back to Boston and New York in 1843, but her daughters were already laid to rest in the Yates family plot at the Vale Cemetery, Schenectady.  It is hard to imagine her loss.

But Mary returned to live in Honolulu, and raised her son there.  John Owen Dominis became the governor of Oahu and Maui.  He married Lydia Kamekeha Paki in 1862, the daughter of an ali’i family.  She became Princess Liliuokalani and later the last Queen of Hawaii.  After the Kingdom of Hawaii was overthrown, she made Washington Place her permanent home. Liliuokalani lived there for the rest of her life, and died in her bedroom there on 11 November 1917.  She had lived there for 55 years.

A portrait of Queen Liliuokalani graces the dining room inside Washington Place

Washington Place was bought from the Queen’s estate by the legislature of Hawaii in 1921.  It became the governor’s mansion for the territorial and state governors of Hawaii until 2002 when a new governor’s mansion was built.  It is now a historic house museum, and the site of official events for the state of Hawaii, such as parties, press conferences, and official visits from heads of states. Tours are free, and available by appointment.

Although Washington Place is owned by the state of Hawaii, the funds for maintenance and upkeep are raised by the private Washington Place Foundation.  The house is now 171 years old, and the tropical climate has caused several maintenance problems which will be expensive to repair.  With state cutbacks and economic measures being what they are now, the house museum is seeking additional donations towards major structural repairs.  To make a donation please make a check payable to:

The Washington Place Foundation

Honolulu, HI 96808

2012 New Hampshire Thanksgiving Proclamation

from left to right
NH Mayflower Governor John Payzant, Recording Secretary Heather Rojo,
Elder Penny Webster and NH Governor John Lynch

On 14 November 2012 the Honorable Governor John Lynch of New Hampshire signed the annual Thanksgiving Proclamation with members of the New Hampshire Mayflower Society, at a session of the Executive Council at the statehouse in Concord.

The New Hampshire Mayflower Society's mission is to honor the memory of our Plymouth ancestors and to fulfill this mission through genealogical research and promoting our colonial history.  The annual proclamation makes Thanksgiving official throughout the state of New Hampshire, so our residents can now "officially" enjoy their turkey dinners!

Weather Vane Wednesday ~ A Golfer!


Every Wednesday I post a photo of a weather vane from the area of New Hampshire once known as Nutfield, now the towns of Londonderry, Derry and Windham.  Today I wandered a bit over the border into Litchfield.

Do you know the location of weathervane #70?  Scroll down to see the answer.





Today's weather vane was seen at one of the pretty homes lining the fairways on Passaconaway Golf Course in Litchfield, New Hampshire.  This unusual weather vane is mounted directly on the ridge pole of the garage roof, and is not attached to a cupola or tower.  It is a great weather vane for this neighborhood!
