Cemeteries & History of Farmington, New Hampshire

Thompson Burial Plot/Camp Road Cemetery
Photos by Kim Varney Chandler.
For more genealogy information on the Thompson family, see http://www.geocities.com/varneykr/genealogy

Buried here are (with visible tombstones) James Thompson, his wife, Charlotte Roberts Thompson; their daughter, Emily, aged 6; Elizabeth Canney Thompson, wife of James' son, George W Thompson; and Clarissa Thompson.

This plot is deep in the woods, on land still owned by the Thompson Family. The surrounding property belongs to the Swift Water Girl Scouts. All of the property at one time was in the Thompson family, and an old cellar hole is en route to the cemetery.

The cemetery is in great disrepair and in need of upkeep. It is hard to tell who else may be buried there, and my assumption is that more headstones are now missing.
