     Obadiah Bean, my 4x Great Grandfather, was born about 1779 - 1781 in Brentwood, NH, son of Levi Bean & Patience Gove. He married Anna "Nancy" Hoyt , daughter of John Hoyt & Dorothy Glidden on March 22 1806 in Chester, NH (NHVR). "Nancy" was born on May 13 1784 at Poplin, NH (NHVR) She was baptized on 4 July 1784 at Chester, NH, according to A Genealogical History of the Hoyt, Haight, and Hight Families by David Webster Hoyt, or at the Fremont Church in Fremont, NH on the same day according to Bernie Bean The Life & Family of John Bean of Exeter and his Cousins.
     Obadiah Bean is found in the administration papers for his father Levi Bean in 1797 #6295 & the corresponding complaint filed by his brother Levi Bean of Deerfield in 1809 at the NH State Archives. Levi's complaint states that the Administrator, Richard Bean has still not completed the administration of the estate for his father Levi Bean of Brentwood. (Richard being the brother of Levi Sr.) More will be included about this next week, but with in that file there are two documents signed by Obadiah & Jeremiah Bean. One is a document  from Oct 8 1811 stating that in order to pay the final debts of the estate the land in Kingston set off to the widow (Betty Bean) needs to be sold. At the bottom of this document it reads: "We the subscribers heirs to the said estate request that above said petition may be granted - signed by Obadiah Bean & Jeremiah Bean; granted by Nath'l Rogers. This is the land Obadiah purchased on Deed 196 418

The following Rockingham County Deeds involve Obediah Bean Sr or his wife Nancy:

1824 243-163 Obadiah Bean of Poplin & Nancy to Jon’a Dowst 

      According to Richard Roberts, a descendant of Nancy Hoyt (Bean) Roberts who shared this with me in a correspondence: "The selectmen of Poplin gave "Obediah" Bean liberty to retail spiritous liquor for two months, 7 March 1805; to retail foreign spiritous liquor for six months, 20 May 1805; to retail liquor three months, 6 May 1806; and to retail spirits six months, recorded September 1806. "Obadiah" Bean received permits to retail spiritous liquor and keep tavern 18 March 1807 and to retail spiritous liquor by small innities less than one pint for six months, 14 December 1810. 
      "Obadiah" Bean was assessed 20 cents in taxes for "making and repairing The publick high-ways and bridges" 21 May 1824, the lowest figure in his district (amounts went as high as $13.25). "

     Sometime between the years of 1820 & 1830 the family removed to Lowell, MA where Obadiah likely died between 1830-Feb 1833, although no record has been found of his death & no probate exists for him in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. It is likely Obadiah on the 1830 Census in Lowell, MA with 14 others in the household, & it is certain he has died by Feb 1833 when Nancy sells land to her son Obadiah.
      Nancy died on July 4 1862 at age 78 according to her headstone inscription in Edgewood Cemetery, Nashua, Lot 51, Sec. E. I requested a photo of the grave be taken & it is now on FindaGrave.com. It appears she went by both Anna & Nancy. According to Roberts, after the death of her father, her grandfather, John Hoyt, became the guardian of “Anna” and her siblings on March 19 1800, but in the settlement of her father's estate just a month later she is referred to as Nancy. She was not named in her grandfather's will, but was among those notified of the hearing pertaining to the will. The sheriff, in a document that appears to read "December 2nd 1818", gives her name as "Nancy Bean"; next to her name is "Obadiah Bean". She is documented in the following Lowell Directories: 
        1833 Bean, Nancy, widow, boarding house between Adams & Fenwick Sts. 
        1834 Bean, Nancy, widow, bds. at Waldo's, Lowell St. 
        1835 Bean, Nancy, wid. Wm. Robert's, Lowell corner of Lewis St. 
        1836 Bean, Nancy, wid. boarding h. 25 carpet block 
        1837 Bean, Mrs., wid. App. bds at 8
And these Nashua, NH Directories:
        1841 Nancy Bean, Water St. ; George G. Hale, Nashua Corp. Textiles 
        1843 Nancy Bean, wid. ; G. Hale, Nashua -- Walnut St. 
      Also according to R. Roberts a letter dated December 11 1912 found among the possessions of Addie Mae (Holcomb) Bean, Stephen Spelman Roberts listed the children of Obadiah and Nancy (Hoyt) Bean. At that time, Richard had information on all of them except Adelaide and George. Since then, I have shared the info I had on George & Adelaide with him & the MacBean Clan.
                         Children of Obadiah Bean and Anna "Nancy" Hoyt:
1. Nancy Hoyt Bean was born on 8 August 1806 at Poplin, NH (NHVR). She married William Watson Roberts, son of John Roberts and Ann Watson March 6 1831 at Lowell, MA. He was born in Nottingham, England. 1850 & 1860 they are in Hartland, CT, 1870 Granville, MA. He died Dec 1, 1871 in Granville, Ma. She died Feb 28 1903 Granville, MA. 
                                        Their children were:
          i. Joseph W. Roberts b: a1835 married Margaret C. __? They had: Renford R b: 1855
            & Clarence R. 1858
         ii.  Adelaide Roberts   b: a1837
        iii.  Charles W. Roberts b: a1840
        iv.  John D. Roberts      b:  a1842
         v.  Stephen Spellman Roberts b: a1844
        vi.  Edward F. Roberts  b: a1846
       vii.  Lemuel B. Roberts b: a1849

2. Obadiah Bean Jr. was born on March 5 1808 at Poplin, NH (NHVR). March 21, 1825 in the New Hampshire Patriot "This may certify that I, Obadiah Bean of Poplin in the county of Rockingham in the state of New Hampshire, do give to my son, Obadiah Bean his time, to act, and trade for himself. Signed Obadiah Bean"
       The MacBean website says Obediah married Dorothy Sanborn , daughter of David Sanborn and Dorothy Gilman, on October 6 1828 at Salem, NH, but the marriage record states Dorothy Page, both of Hawke. I have not really researched past this, but it seems to me she might have been married first to John Page of Danville/Hawke, son of Thomas & Mary Page who died Sep 4 1823 age 38y 5m 16d in Danville, NH (NHVR). 
    Dolly/Dorothy died Apr 9 1872 age 84y & 1mo & is buried in the Kingston, NH Plains Cemetery with Obediah. Her stone states "Dorothy S.P. wife of Obadiah Bean died April 9 1872 aged 84 yrs 1 mo". This makes his wife 20 years older than he was which seems...odd, but that is definitely what the grave says. In censuses their ages are varied: 1830 has them with a 10y difference; 1840 a 20 yr difference; 1850 it has them as the same age, 1860 it has him as 50 & her as 71; 1870 62y & 82y. Obediah Jr & Dorothy can be found in Hawke in 1830 & Kingston, NH on the 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870 Censuses. He married 2nd Alvira A. (Perkins) Richardson a44 on Nov 24 1873 Nashua, NH; second marriage for both; He was born Freemont 1808; father Obadiah b: Brentwood (NHVR). Her parents were Adam H. & Melite M. Perkins. They are in Kingston in 1880. Obediah Jr. died in Kingston Nov 13 1888, record states son of “Obadiah Bean & Nancy H. Cooper” b: 1807 (NHVR) (Cooper must just be an error it seems). His grave marker states he died Nov 12 1888 & was 86y 7mos 7 das.  Alvira died Apr 8 1915 in Newton, NH & is also buried in Plains Cemetery Kingston, NH. Photos of these graves can be found on FindaGrave.
                           Children of Obadiah & Dolly from the 1850 census are below. 
                                It seems there are likely others that are unknown to me.
          i. Sarah A. Bean a21 b. 1829 d. Dec 1 1905 in Kingston, NH,
            record says dau of Obadiah Bean & Dolly Sanborn
         ii. John P. Bean a19 b. 1831 m: Mehitable J. Bartlett on Nov 10 1851

                     July 4 1898 in Haverhill, MA (NEHGS); lived in Haverhill,
                     MA 1900 Census
                  c. Forest Bean b. a1860 twin
                  d. Harriet A. Bean b.a1860 twin

3. Polly Bean was born on April 11 1809 in Poplin, NH (NHVR). No parents listed on the record.

4. Levi Bean was born on November 25 1810 in Poplin, NH (NHVR). According to Richard Roberts (noted above) on Jan 17 1827 Levi was apprenticed to Samuel Smith of Bridgewater :
       "This indentor witnesseth that Levi Bean, son of Obediah Bean of Poplin in the county of Rockingham State of New Hampshire cooper by and with the consent of his said Father has put himself apprentice to Samuel Smith of Bridgewater in the county of Grafton and State of New Hampshire Husbandman with the said Samuel Smith after the manner of an apprentice to Serve from the Day of the Date Hereafter mentioned for and during the Term of four years nine months and twenty-nine days which Term the said apprentice is to serve his Said Master faithfully in his Service Keep Lawful Company everywhere, and obey; Etc. Etc." 
      I last found him as a runaway from Samuel Smith: New-Hampshire Statesman and Concord Register, (Concord, NH) Saturday, February 16, 1828; Issue [40]; col D "Ran away from the subscriber, on the 26th of January last past, an indenturred apprentice boy, to the farming business named Levi Bean. This is to caution all persons from harboring or trusting him on my account, as I shall pay 00 debts of his contacting after the above date. SAMUEL SMITH Bridgewater, Feb 2 1828" (also published Feb 9 1828)
      A Levi Bean died in Manchester, NH before Sept 23, 1847 per the Farmer's Cabinet aged 37. It seems this could be him.

5. John Hoyt Bean was born on 11 February 1812 at Brentwood, NH/Exeter, NH. He married Margaret Hyde, daughter of Levi Hyde and Elizabeth Gould, on 11 May 1836 at Marblehead, MA. She was buried on Sept 26, 1859* age 49 with John grave 8.  He married 2nd Lucy "Mary" Carter Austin, daughter of James Austin and Lucy Allen, on 5 January 1862 at Lynn, MA. She was born about June 15 1834 and was buried June 24, 1890* age 55, 9d. He died age 89y 9m 1d and was buried on Nov 13, 1901. He is buried in Pinegrove Cemetery Lynn, Ma, Poplar lot 499 right 1/2 grave 8. He died in Fitchburg Nov 12, 1901. His estate was administered by Fred W. Bean (his son) docket# 89393 1901 - I have not seen the original yet, just the summary.
       Sept 28, 1827 in the New Hampshire Patriot - "This may certify that I, Obadiah Bean of Poplin in the county of Rockingham in the state of New Hampshire, do give to my son, John H. Bean his time, to act, and trade for himself. Signed Obadiah Bean"
       He was a large furniture dealer, Bean & Austin Furniture per 1865 Directory-Lynn, Ma.
       John Hoyt Bean evidently temporarily changed his name to John Hoyt Henry in 1833 for a little while before changing it back to Bean in 1843 at that time he lived in Danvers and was married to Margaret and had children Mary J. & John. He is listed as Henry on the 1840 Census in Danvers, MA. The name change is recorded in the Massachusetts Name Changes, but I have not attempted to see if there is a file that might state what the reason was.
       Bernie Bean in The Life & Family of John Bean of Exeter and his Cousins states that among Obadiah & Nancy’s children was a son John P. Bean, born in Fremont, NH. He was married & had a son named John W. Bean who lived in Haverhill, Mass in 1900, but as proven here, I have to disagree with Bernie. While there might have been a John W. Bean who lived in Haverhill, MA in 1900, his father was not the son of this Obadiah, he was his grandson, son of Obediah Jr.

6. George W. Bean was born a1814 d: 1850 See previous blog post

7. Dorothy Bean was born on March 6 1817 at Poplin, NH (per Richard Roberts). I couldn't find this record in Poplin records. However, there is a Dorothy Ann Bean who intended to marry George Sargent in Lowell July 5, 1835, this seems like it might be her…and there is also a record for Dorothy Ann G. Bean who might be her, but both are pretty inconclusive at this point. The latter married Capt. Warren Eldridge Austin of Hollis in Nashua, NH Nov 25, 1841, no parents listed (NHVR). The 1850 Census in Hollis lists her as “Martha A.G.” Ch: Laura Ann a7; Warren L. a5; Marietta a3; Nancy Jane a2. The 1860 census in Brookline, NH lists her as Warren E. a46; "Dorothy N. G. Austin" a44; Laura Ann a16; Warren S. a15; Marietta a13; Nancy J. a11; Martha E. a8. The 1870 Census in Pepperell, MA: Warren E. a57; Dorothy A. a54; Mary E. a23; Jennie N. a22; Martha E. a18. 1880 Census in Brookline, NH: Warren E. a64 & Dorathy A. a 62. She died b: 1816 Jan 6 1888 Montague MA, father’s last name Bean, no other info (NEHGS)

8. Maria B. Bean was born on April 1 1818 at Chester, NH. She married Amos Stinson Morse, son of Josiah Morse and Lydia T. Shannon. Check NEHGS & more census records. She died May 9 1874 Lowell, Ma a56 1m 9d of consumption, record states Obadiah & Nancy Bean as her parents (NEHGS).
   The 1860 Census in Nashua, NH shows their children, & Maria’s mother Nancy with them, as well as Adelaide’s baby girl Emma R. Morse a5 aka Maria’s niece, Emma R. Fogg.

10. Hiram K. Bean was born circa 1824. He married Mary A. Campbell, daughter of Matthew M. Campbell and Olive C. Moody, on October 29 1845 at Manchester, NH. They can be found there on the 1850 Census. Farmer's Cabinet on Feb 2 1854  "Hiram K. Bean, aged 30" died.  I did not find his wife & daughter in 1860, 1870, or 1880.
        i. Alice Bean b. a1846

11. Benjamin Franklin Bean was born on November 30 1824 at Poplin, NH. He married Mary E. Perle Mar 2 1845 in Manchester, NH, no parents listed (NHVR). They lived in Lynn & then Roxbury where he was a provisions dealer, builder & real estate agent. He served in the Civil War and is listed in the Civil War Records and Profiles on Ancestry.com: enlistment date Aug 26, 1862; Corporal, POW; Enlisted in company d, Massachusetts 42nd Inf Regiment on Sept 20, 1862 mustered out on Aug 20, 1863 at Readville, Ma.; b a1824.

12. Adalaide Q. Bean. According to her death record she would be the youngest child of Obadiah & Nancy Bean born in Poplin about Dec 1, 1828. Adelaide Q. Bean married William Fogg on Sept 20, 1852. Worcester Vital Records NEHGS vol. 62 pg 257. His residence was Worcester, and hers was Nashua, NH. His occupation at the time was an engineer. Son of William & Esther Fogg. Daughter of Obadiah & Nancy Bean. NEHGS Adelaide Q. Fogg died Jan 15, 1856 recorded in Lowell, Ma, but happened in "Ayers City". She was 27 yrs, 1mo 14?days and died of consumption. It says she was a married housewife and was born in Topsfield, NH to Obadiah & Nancy Bean. NEHGS. William Fogg married second Hannah Ward, both age 30, on June 26, 1856 in Boston, vol. 101 pg 79 NEHGS. I did not find any of them on a census record, but it appears Emma was raised by her Aunt Maria.
                           There was one birth found for William & Adelaide
        i. Emma R. Fogg born June 3, 1855 recorded in Lowell, Ma, but born in Charlestown.
          William & Adelaide lived on Sether? St. in Lowell at the time. He was a laborer.
          Father's place of birth is sort of illegible, but I think it says Hebron. Mother's place
          of birth is Poplin, NH. NEHGS. It appears Emma R. Morse is Adelaide's missing
          daughter, Emma R Fogg. Emma shows up on the 1860 census with Adelaide's sister
          Maria Morse. There maybe adoption papers somewhere, I have not checked.
               There are no births for Amos & Maria for an Emma. Emma marries A. Edwin
          Wright on July 11, 1872 in Lowell. He is the son of Calvin & A. Janette Wright
          born July 1851 in NC. Her parents are listed as Amos and Maria but on the 1900
          census in Boston Emma states she was born June 1855 & her father was born in Me
          which matches. It says her mother was born in Ma, although it should be NH. I
          cannot find a death between 1900-1910 for Emma or her husband, nor did I find
          them on a census past 1900. Emma had 3 children 2 are living in 1900.
                      Children of A. Edwin Wright & Emma R. Fogg - Morse are:
                 a. Benjamin F. B. Wright born Oct 1873 d: after 1900
                 b. Edwin T. Wright Jan 1879 d: after 1900

George W. Bean Jr. Family Grave, Oxials Path near Paulowina Ave, lot 51 in Pinegrove Cemetery, Lynn, MA
     My GG Grandmother Celestia Ann Bean was the daughter of George W. Bean and Mary A. Rand of Lynn, Ma. George was born about 1814 (1815-acc. newspaper death) in Poplin, NH, the son of Obadiah Bean & Nancy Anne Hoyt (see next week's blog). George moved with his parents & siblings to Lowell, MA sometime between 1820- 1830. He can be found in The 1834 Lowell Directory where it lists “Bean, George, Bar-room, Merrimack St Suffolk square.” This is the same address that his brother John Bean was listed at in the 1833 Lowell Directory, before he removed to Danvers, MA. Mary had also moved to Lowell after the death of her mother taking her younger siblings with her. She can be found in The 1836 Female Directory in Lowell, MA where it lists "Rand, Mary, Mer. bds at 18" 
     It seems by 1838 George has left for Lynn, MA as he is no longer in the Lowell Directory, but he likely lived in a household under another, I did not find him on the 1840 Census. The 1841 Lynn Directory lists “George W Bean, cor. b. Vine st.”. George married Mary Ann Rand on Feb 20, 1842 in Lynn, MA according to the Lynn Vital Record Book. It is said there aren't any original records in Lynn prior to 1850, and the town clerk’s office insists the book has any information that was on the record [Insert eyes rolling here].
     Records consistently indicate Mary A. Bean was born about 1816, in Chester, NH. No record of her birth exists in Chester or anywhere else in NH, however due to extensive research that will be discussed in a future post, I have been able to prove her parents were Joseph Rand & Nancy Rand of Gilmanton & Chester, NH.
    In the next seven & a half years George and Mary would have 3 children, & were expecting their 4th in Feb of 1850. Life as a cordwainer must not have suited George as on Oct 31, 1849 he sailed out of Boston with 170 others on the ship "Richmond" in search of gold & riches as a 49er. His destination Benicia, California. This information comes from File #0395. Westchester, Chester Co., Penna. Estate of William Webster. Information from entries in a diary of Thomas D. Day of Jefferson, Maine written on a trip around Cape Horn in 1849 (http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cascgsi/shiprichmondaj.htm)
    On Nov 2, 1849 the Salem Gazette shows the passengers on the ship Richmond, but instead of George it lists his brother "John H. Bean" who also lived in town. Perhaps Johns intended to purchase the ticket for himself & changed his mind, or perhaps he was helping out George and purchased the ticket for him. It is unknown.
    The 1850 Census in Lynn, MA lists George and his family with no mention that he is in California: George W Bean  26    NH Cordmaker [Cordwainer/shoemaker - It definitely says he is 26, but he was not]; Mary A  35    NH; Joseph F   8  MA; George W    6   MA; Celeste A    4   MA; Mary A    7mo MA [John H. Bean, George’s brother, and his family are only a couple pages away from George's family on this census]
    The 1851 Lynn Directory which was actually printed at the end of 1850 confirms George is the one in California with listing of "George W. Bean 72 Vine (California)" but sadly, George had passed away just about the time this directory was going to print. The Boston Daily Atlas Tuesday, Feb. 11 1851 Issue 190 Column G Death Notices: in San Francisco, Dec 31st, Jacob D. Clark, of Boston, 25; 29th, John Wheeler of Boston, 23; GEORGE W BEAN of Mass.” Also see the Feb 21 1851 issue of the Barre Gazette: Headline: Later from California. Arrival of the Georgia; Article Type: News/Opinion; Volume: XVII; Issue: 38; Page: [3]; Location: Barre, Massachusetts Death in San Francisco: "George W. Bean, Mass, 35, dysentery".
        I've often wondered how Mary survived raising young kids as a widow without any identifiable occupation, and yet certainly not "pauper". I suspect John, George’s brother must have helped her, but speculate when I say…it’s possible John & George had devised a plan for riches together, and when George died out there, it left John with the guilt and responsibility of George's family. There was never a will or administration in Essex County for George.
       Mary can be found over the rest of the decade in these records: The 1854 Lynn Directory lists Mary A. Bean, widow, house foot Vine and the 1855 Mass Census in Lynn shows Mary A. Bean a38; Joseph F. Bean a12; George Bean a11; Charlotte A. Heale a3 [no idea who?]; Celestia A. Bean a8; Mary A. Bean  a5. 1858 Lynn Directory Mary A. Bean, widow, foot Vine St.
                   Over the next decade she can be found in these records:
     The 1860 Census in Lynn, MA: Mary A Bean a45  (Head) b: NH; Joseph F Bean a18 b: Ma  Laborer; George W Bean a16 b: Ma; Celeste A Bean a13 b: Ma; Mary A Bean a10 b: Ma.
     The 1860 Lynn Directory shows Mary A. Bean, widow, house at 97 Commercial.  
     The 1865 Mass Census we find Mary in Lynn which clearly not only confirms Joseph’s name change to Benjamin, but also connects Mary to her sister Jemima: Mary A Bean  a48 wd b: NH; Benj F.  Bean  a21  Musician b: Ma; Geo W. Bean  a19  shoemaker; Celestia Bean  a17 b: Ma shoefitter; Mary A. Bean  a15 b: Ma; Jemima Currier  a39 wd b: NH; Jos M Currier a13 boxmaker  b: Ma; Melvin P Currier a11; Ella F. Currier a9.
     The 1867 Lynn Directory Mary A. Bean, widow, Neptune, corner south ; Geo W [Jr] is on 3 Essex in Lynn [Benj F.isn't listed].
     The 1870 Census Mary is in Haverhill, MA with her daughter Celestia Haseltine, but by the 1880 Census she is back in Lynn, MA: Mary Bean age 64 widow    NH   NH    NH & Alice Bean age 28 daug   widow    MA  NH  NH. She remained in Lynn for the remainder of her life and can be found on the 1890 Lynn Directory on 305 Summer St.
      Mary died Apr 1, 1893 age 77 in Lynn, Ma of consumption. The record states widow of George W. & daughter of Samuel & Mary, although the latter is incorrect (NEHGS). She is buried in Pinegrove Cemetery, Lynn, MA on Fuchia Path lot 56. Her grave is unmarked but she & Mary Alice are buried between Foote and Severance markers. Essex County probate doesn't have a will or admin for her either. I did not find an obit in the Derry News, GenealogyBank.com, or on the external databases with NEHGS.

                    Children of George W. Bean Sr & Mary A. Rand were:

1.  Joseph F. Bean aka Benjamin F. Bean born about Aug 1843-44. I haven't found a record of his birth. “Joseph” is last noted in 1860, age 18. He doesn't appear to have enlisted, but there are other Jos. F Bean's that did. He seems to have completely disappeared after 1860, but it is that he began to use the name Benjamin Franklin Bean as is documented in his marriage record:  Benjamin Franklin Bean son of George W. and Mary A Bean born about 1844 who married (a21) Aug 2, 1865 Emma Maria Williams d of Geo W & Hannah E. Williams in Lynn, he is a musician.  Emma was born May 29 1845 in Lynn, MA (NEHGS).
     He is not on the name change list for Massachusetts Name Changes between 1780-1892. There is no evidence of another child named Benjamin born to George W. & Mary Bean of Lynn.  Just in double checking the 1850 & 1860 census there is no Benj Bean b: 1842-1846 in Massachusetts which supports at that time he was known as Joseph F. Bean.  Benj/Joseph doesn't seem to have enlisted in the Civil War, only his Uncle Benj F. Bean of Roxbury. No birth is found on NEHGS under Benjamin either.
The following records can be found for him under "B. Frank" or Benjamin F." :

<![CDATA[Those Places Thursday - Are You Interested in Leasing a Piece of History, or in Purchasing & Preserving a Historical Property? Windham, NH's 1868 Campbell Farmhouse Offers An Opportunity for Non-Profit Organizations & More]]>Thu, 20 Nov 2014 19:25:01 GMThttp://nhgenealogist.com/2/post/2014/11/new-england-genealogist-those-places-thursday-are-you-interested-in-leasing-a-piece-of-history-or-in-purchasing-preserving-a-historical-property-windham-nhs-1868-campbell-farmhouse-offers-an-opportunity-for-non-profit-organizations-more.htmlPicturePhoto by Amylynne Baker-Santagate for With Windham Independent
The historical home built in 1868 & located on Kendall Pond Rd. was purchased by the Town of Windham, NH in July 2014 in an effort to preserve its place within the town, but the final out come of the historical homestead is still up for discussion. It is undecided as to whether or not the homestead will be parceled off from the majority of farm land & sold, or if it is an opportunity to lease it as a residence, small home-based business, non-profit organization, etc. 

PicturePhoto by Amylynne Baker-Santagate for the Windham Independent
Anyone interested in purchasing or leasing the homestead should be aware that historical preservation restrictions, & covenants would be required, residential zoning applies, & the majority of the 65 acre farm land surrounding the homestead will be used for an undetermined type of public recreation. 



If those are concepts which are acceptable and you are interested in discussing your ideas or proposals for the homestead with the Campbell Farm Subcommittee, please submit them to CKing@WindhamNewHampshire.com or by US Post to C. King at Windham Conservation Commission, 3N. Lowell Rd, Windham, NH 03087. All ideas & proposals will be discussed in a public meeting. All interested parties are advised to attend.

       More information on this ongoing topic can be found in the local weekly paper:
