East Whitefield Cemetery (Colby Cemetery)
Coos County, New Hampshire

Brayhill Rd at Hwy 16
East Whitefield NH

Lat: 44° 24' 06"N, Lon: 71° 33' 02"W

Contributed by Bob Glidden, Nov 18, 2002 [jbgliden@scican.net]. Total records = 58.

From Whitefield, NH, take Rte 16 northeast toward Jefferson, NH, to Bray Hill Road, turn left onto Bray Hill Road less than 1/10th mile, cemetery on the right.

This cemetery supported the small community of East Whitefield and has been full since the 1940's. It is also known as Bray Hill Cemetery.

There are no sexton files to be found, and can find no other records locally of this cemetery. Most gravesites are without surviving markers, as wooden markers were common here.

These are personal tombstone readings supported by newspaper obituary records, which I have done between 1990 and 2002.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
