About Henry Dearborn Pierce

Henry Dearborn Pierce was the last child born to Benjamin and Anna Kendrick Pierce in Hillsborough, New Hampshire. He followed family tradition; he could not do otherwise considering his father's lifetime advocacy for the militia, and rose to the rank of colonel. After his military service, the business of running the family farm in Hillsborough remained the focus of his life. A gifted public speaker, he was active in town government, serving as moderator first in 1845 and intermittently through 1867. He married Susan Tuttle of Antrim in 1841 and together they had two sons, Kirk Dearborn Pierce and Frank Hawthorne Pierce...

They are buried at the Pine Hill Cemetery in Hillsboro along with their sons and family.
