    We believe that we have a carriage that is signed “Rochester” that may indicate that it was made in Rochester, NH since the family was from New England. We suspect it was made in the 1930s but did not come to western NewYork until 1920 or 1930 as an antique. I am interested in information about carriage manufacturers in Rochester if there were any.

    • In the mid to late 18oos there were several carriage makers in Rochester. Edgerly made carriages in Rochester beginning in 1839. They are still in business today as an undertaker. Nahum Corson and John W Roberts also made carriages in 1878. Is this a full size carriage? There were people who made baby carriages as well.

    It is wonderful to visit your site and learn about Rochester, NH. I am from Rochester, NY, also a lilac city. I was wondering what is the history of the name “lilac city” for your town?

    Hello
    I’ve recently inherited a large painting and the back is signed: “presented to Mr. And Mrs. W. Linscott painted by Emerson D. Linscott Rochester NH 1896. I wonder if you can tell me anything about this person?

    Thank you, Ruth

    Hello, I am looking for information and any historical photographs of North Main Street, particularly images that may show buildings at 32 to 38 North Main Street. I have been researching Macs’s lunch wagon / diner that was located next to 38 North Main Street. It was owned by Charles M. Andrews.

    My name is Thomas McDuffee and my family has long been associated with the history of Rochester. Lt Col John McDuffee (house on Dover Road) is my 5th great uncle and his brother Captain Daniel McDuffee is my fifth great grandfather. This is where I need help. Despite two trips to Rochester and Farmington (I live in Indianapolis) I have not been able to locate the McDuffee Cemetery which is supposed to be on route 11 just west of Rochester on the way to Farmington. The Captain is buried there along with about 30 other family members. Do you have any data regarding the location of this cemetery. A set of 1989 GPS coordinates placed it in the tree line between the Pink Cadillac Restaurant and Tides Fish Market…not sure if this is correct but it is my only clue. I contacted Tides and they had no information.
    Thank you for your time and assistance.

      Hello, My name is Sharon Jameson and I lived in the John McDuffie homestead for over 10 years. I do know where Lt. Col John McDuffie is buried, but unsure about Cap. Daniel. There are a few other cemeteries in the Rochester area where some of the McDuffie Family are buried. One you can’t even see…it’s behind a U-Haul building in Rochester. I loved that old home and hated to sell it. If you ever come to Rochester in the near future, please let me know. I now live in Londonderry, NH, but would be more than happy to see if we can figure out where the cemetery is located that you are looking for.
      Thank you,
      Sharon Jameson

      I just happened to come across your post. There indeed is a historic cemetery located along route 11 located in the area you are researching.
