Isaac Huse, son of Abel Huse and Mary Whittier, was born in Methuen, Massachusetts on 16 September 1759, died in September 1833 in Manchester, New Hampshire; married Joanne Rowell on 1 July 1802 in Londonderry.  She was the daughter of David Rowell and Sarah Cheney, born in 1780 and died on 1 July 1820 in Manchester.   They had seven children: Isaac, Mary, Jerome Bonaparte, Lydia, Susan, John and Elizabeth.

The land next to this cemetery was once the property of Isaac Huse, and later was the location of the Derryfield meetinghouse.  It was the center of Derryfield, hence the name "Center Cemetery".  Isaac was a veteran of the Revolutionary War, answering the Lexington Alarm, and enlisting three times.

According to Early Records of the Town of Derryfield: 1782 – 1800, Isaac Huse was voted as  the constable, moderator, selectman and other civil positions for Derryfield.   Derryfield was renamed Manchester in 1810, the year the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company was incorporated.   In 1810 the largest tax payer was Isaac Huse at $16.30.  He was chosen as the first representative from Manchester in 1816. 

Isaac Huse was a descendant of Able Huse and his wife Eleanor, some of the first settlers in Newbury, Massachusetts.
