Question:

Do you know if any graveyard records exist of early residents in Wentworth, New Hampshire? Also, where would I go to search Probate and land records of early Wentworth, N.H. 

  

Answer: 

If you are looking for pre-1771 Wentworth probate and deeds you will want to search Rockingham County Probate.  If it is after 1771 you want to search the county of Grafton of .  We have both early Provincial probates and deeds for Rockingham, and the later Grafton records you would need on microfilm.   .?  I have examined George F. Plummer's History of the Town of Wentworth New Hampshire (Concord, NH, 1930) which makes mentions the Village Cemetery which may be one of the earlier in the community. I would also suggest contacting the Wentworth Public Library (603) -764-5818, do keep in mind they have very limited hours of operation.

The two largest cemeteries in Wentworth are the Village cemetery near the center of the town and the Foster cemetery on Route 25 south of town. There is also a small cemetery on the Buffalo Road between Wentworth and Rumney. Francis Muzzey, Chairman of the Wentworth Selectmen, who is listed on the Wentworth web site (http://www.wentworth-nh.org/htm/selectmen.html) has compiled complete printed lists of the graves in these and other cemeteries in the area which he will copy for a fee.

Some gravestones are pictured on my web site.
