Deerfield, New Hampshire - Military Honor Roll

The Philbrick-James Library, Deerfield, New Hampshire

Last month I visited the Deerfield library to research my Batchelder ancestors who lived here in the late 1700s and early 1800s.  I noticed all the bronze plaques with the honor rolls of Deerfield citizens who served in various wars by the front door of the library.  There were quite a few Batchelder names on these rolls, in the American Revolution and Civil Wars, and some more in later years.  My 6th and 5th grandfathers, both named Nathaniel Batchelder, served in the Revolution and are named here.  Nathaniel Batchelder (1732 - 1778) died at Ticonderoga, and his son Stephen Batchelder (1757 - 1777), my 6th great uncle, died at the Battle of Bennington. My 5th great grandfather, Nathaniel Batchelder, Jr. ( 1763 - 1809), served when he was only 14 years old in Cilley's regiment.  His wife, Mary, received a widow's pension, and her lawyer Franklin Pierce signed the paperwork. He went on to become the 14th president of the United States.
