Tombstone Tuesday ~ John Senter, Hudson, New Hampshire

These gravestones were photographed at the Senter Cemetery, Hudson, New Hampshire.  It is located on the corner of Derry and Robinson Road at USGS Nashua North Quadrangle, E30311, N474278, Zone 19 (42° 48' 51"N, 71° 24' 30"W)


The unusual green quartz boulder on the left
has a bronze plaque that reads:
IN MEMORY OF 
JOHN SENTER 1742
HIS WIFE
JEAN FOSTER 1765
DEDICATED BY HIS DESCENDANTS
1998


HERE LYES THE BODY OF MRS
JEAN SENTER WIFE TO MR
JOHN SENTER SHE DIED JULY 10
1765 AGED 67 YEARS

I'm not a Senter descendant, but this cemetery is right around the corner from me, and I've always wanted to explore it.  It's only a small family burial ground, but there are many surnames on the gravestones inside.  John was one of the original proprietors of Londonderry (Nutfield)  in 1719.

There is a book, John Senter and Jean Foster Descendants, circa 1693 - 2005, by John G. Senter, compiled by Geary M. Senter, Nashua, NH, 2005.
