Tombstone Tuesday ~ The Hackett Family of Hackett Hill, Hooksett, New Hampshire
These tombstones were photographed at the Riverside Cemetery, Hooksett. New Hampshire. I live off Hackett Hill Road, so I was very interested in researching this family. This part of Hooksett was originally part of Goffstown. Hackett Hill Road now starts on Front Street in Manchester and runs to River Road in Hooksett (both ends of the road are on the banks of the Merrimack River on Route 3A).
