Here is a great interactive site to read about Historical New Hampshire. You can even add your own favorites. I was going to add Castle in the Clouds photo below. They have a nicer one already there.
Come tour New Hampshire with me at http://nhdhr.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Viewer/index.html?appid=539d068631644a47aea42fb61b718237
The New England Historical & Genealogical Register for the Year ending 1868 Vol XXII page 310 has a notation of the oldest person known. Here is a transcription of the note.
"The oldest Person Known- A colored woman, Mrs. Flora Stuart, of Londonderry N.H., the Manchester American says, is the oldest person known in the United States. She was born in Boston, in 1750, and consequently is twenty-six years older than the Declaration of Independence. As she tells the story, her father and mother, when she was three months old, came into the possession of the Simpson family of Windham, N.H., as slaves and remained with them until after abolition of slavery in that State. She called her maiden name after that of her master's family, Simpson. She lived in Rockingham County, in the towns of Windham, Lononderry, and Candia from her childhood. Long ago she was left a widow, and has now living two sons and a daughter."
This small paragraph has a goldmine of information, for the descendants of Flora Simpson Stuart; the Simpson family of Windham descendants; anyone looking for news of the time "Manchester American"; and the social beliefs before and after the revolution.
I'm posting this in hopes that it may reach some of those descendants.
