  1. I’d like to know if anyone has information on those buried in the Brighton Cemetery in Croydon. This site lists the cemetery as inactive with the headstones removed but not the remains. That doesn’t make sense, legally or ethically to me. I have a reference that two Revolutionary War soldiers were buried there. If that is true, we (I) need to see that they are properly respected.

    1. New Hampshire Genealogy

      That page was written by Bert from the Croydon Historical Society in Croydon when they were actively maintaining these pages. I can add nothing to it beside the knowledge that the more rural cemeteries suffered significant theft of their gravestones in the early to mid 1900s… apparently the slate stone could be resold (as relayed by Bert). You should reach out to both the Croydon Historical Society to see if they have additional information on the transfer of gravestones, and then reach out to the township of Croydon, as the selectmen are responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the cemeteries.
