Behind East Derry's Historic First Church
is the Forest Hill Cemetery
and the oldest graves there are labeled "First Settlers"
These are the gravestones of the first founding families of Nutfield, New Hampshire,
the Scots Irish Presbyterians who came in 1719. The first burial was about 1722.
At this time the name of the town changed to Londonderry,
and later split into two towns, the Eastern portion renamed Derry.
For the next few weeks I will highlight some of these gravestones individually
and show the artwork, epitaphs and inscriptions, along with some genealogical information.
