Records of the Sanborn Family Cemetery, Hampton, New Hampshire>
This cemetery was previously visited only by Folsom. Inclusive dates: 1829-1907. It includes two pet graves. It is located on private property at 10 Gale Rd. in the western part of town. View a map. (This map dates from before the construction of Gale Road.) This property was once in possession of the Sanborn family, and the house was located along Exeter Road. The cemetery was located on the edge of the Sanborn farm's back field. In 1936 the old Sanborn home was moved back deeper onto the property, fairly close to the cemetery, and was expanded to later become the home of Dr. and Mrs. Wayne P. Bryer. In the 1990s, after Dr. Bryer's death, the property was broken up by the construction of a new neighborhood, and the house's address became 10 Gale Avenue. 624 Exeter Road is now the location of a new home. [Data verified on site in 1986 and in v.2 of Vital Records of Hampton, New Hampshire to the end of the year 1900 by George Freeman Sanborn Jr. and Melinde Lutz Sanborn.]
