  • Some info from History of Town of Goffstown 1733-1920 by George Plummer Hadley. Vol 2, pg 452. Note: Town history gives 7th child as Loring; 1850 census has same age child as Lavena. Written name appears to be Lavena or Lavinia.
  • From "A Pictorial History of Dunbarton"..after the death of the original owner, Capt Parker, the property was purchased by Eliphalet R Sargent in 1835. His son David succeeded in ownership,and then David's widow, thus the name Sargent Homestead. The plan drawing, as made by Harlan Noyes, was of the original 1 1/2 story structure of the farm.
