In my first post about Founder's Park in Hampton, New Hampshire I offered to post the photographs of the surname stones. Several readers made requests last week, and here are two more stones requested by reader Shelley Bishop (who is also related to Reverend Stephen Bachiller in the first post). Shelley is the author of the "A Sense of Family" blog http://www.asenseoffamily.com/:
SANBORN- the first Sanborns in New Hampshire were three grandsons of the Reverend Stephen Bachiler (John, William and Stephen) who arrived with him in 1632. I am also a Sanborn descendant through John, who married Margaret Page.
MARSTON- William Marston came first to Salem, Massachusetts and then to Hampton about 1636. He was a Quaker, and he suffered religious persecution both in England and in New Hampshire.
