The lists of our Collections are admittedly out of date.  When we open the doors to our museum, we plan to have updated lists documenting all of the items below and maybe more.  We are also exploring ways to make these lists interactive or searchable versus the static lists we currently show.  Again with the museum, we plan to have these lists updatable in real time so you will always have the latest discoveries at your fingertips.  Thank you for your patience.

The Moulton Cemetery contains just one monument, notably that of  John Moulton 10/31/1845 - 14yrs10mo - Son of Abner & Nancy B Moulton and Samuel E. Moulton 10/30/1845 - 16yrs9mo - Son of Abner & Nancy B Moulton.  

The two brothers most likely died of one of the common contagious diseases of the time. Possibly small-pox since victims of that illness were often buried alone, isolated from others.

Their sister, Susan, married Benjamin Stillings and is buried in the nearby Stillings-Towle Cemetery, which is well-documented on Find-A-Grave.  She died 01/12/1876 - 49 yrs, 3 mos.

Moulton was her maiden name. 

 

According to a link from her page to her father’s, Abner Moulton is buried in Vermont, so most likely the family moved there at a later time. 

Thanks to Jess Davis for expanding on our information and to Angela Huertas for sparking the original interest.

Details of Parker/Cobb cemetery provided by Mike Eisner. (January 2022 This information was found on a Facebook site, "Crawford Notch & Environs History Group") 

In reviewing the past posts, I noticed a few posts about the Cobb Cemetery aka Glidden Field Cemetery. I am very familiar with this cemetery. The people buried there are my uncle’s ancestors. There hasn’t been a lot published concerning the Parker and Cobb families. They are important families for Hart’s Location and Bartlett as their history in the area goes back prior to 1830.

In the late 1970s and early 1980’s, my extended family use to get together and hike up to railroad tracks to the cemetery. It was usually my grandmother, my mother and all us kids (cousins). The expedition was always led by my Aunt Judi. She led the group because she knew where the cemetery was. Back in those days it wasn’t so easy to find.

I will never forget going there. To me it was deep in the woods. It was dark even if it was sunny. Surprisingly I never found it creepy. It was always peaceful. I remember the big trees all around. There were no weeds, just some moss.

We would take stone rubbings and clear up fallen branches. All the stones were standing. We loved looking and reading the names. Sometimes there were two names; Hiram Parker and Hiram Parker as well as Phebe Cobb and Phebe Cobb. Hiram and Hiram were father and son while Phebe and Phebe were mother and daughter. I think I asked this same question every year “why are there two sets of graves with the same name?”

For years we made the journey to the cemetery. As we got older and started our own lives, we stopped caring for the important graves. Some of the family, mainly my cousin and I, still go there every year to see what’s going on. I don’t live nearby so I visit when I can. I do know that other relatives visit very yearly, when they are in the area.

For a while we could not see the cemetery because of all the ferns and underbrush that grew up after some trees were cut down. I know that some nice people went in and took care of it. They erected the main stone, etc. I’m glad someone cared enough to save what was remaining. Sadly most of the stones have fallen and were in bad shape. Time certainly was not a friend here.

Here is everything you might need to know about those buried at the cemetery. It follows below.

I have also included a map that shows who lived where in the basic Cobb Farm Road area up to Sawyers in 1861. In 1870 the land near the cemetery was valued at $2000 and owned by E Cobb. Think of E Cobb as near where the Cobb Farmhouse is currently.

H Parker is Hiram Parker Sr. Treasurer of Harts Location. If you notice the homestead is near the Cobb Cemetery’s location. This may be the cellar hole people have mentioned.

P Moulton is Perkins Moulton

L Moulton is Levi Moulton

 

Behind where my grandparents house was are the graves of two of the Moulton children. A story for another day.  Oddly enough there’s a F Cobb - Freeman Cobb that lives near E Cobb but not on this map.

I hope you found this information interesting. Please let me know any further info if you have any. There are a lot of connections between the Parkers, Cobbs, Stillings, Higgins and more. Too much for one post.
