1 CD: Annals of the Town of Concord, in the County of Merrimack, and State of New Hampshire, From Its First Settlement, in the Year 1726, to the Year 1823. With Several Biographical Sketches. To Which is Added, A Memoir of the Penacook Indians
Jacob B. Moore
(1824), 2006, CD, Graphic Images, Searchable, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 116 pp, Heritage Books
"This rare history by a youth of twenty-seven comprised only 112 pages in pamphlet form. But it's so replete with details of Concord's first 97 years, the town government purchased copies for every family." "The circumstances attending the first settlement, the hardships endured by the settlers, and their frequent exposure to Indian warfare; the massacre by the Indians and their depredations upon the property of the inhabitants; and the tedious and perplexing controversy with the proprietors of Bow-were all deemed subjects of sufficient importance to interest the people of this town." This volume begins with the annals of the town, the history of the churches and religious societies and the topography of the area. The author then presents biographical sketches of Sir Benjamin Thompson, Thomas W. Thompson, Timothy Walker, Dr. Philip Carrigain, Rev. Israel Evans, Col. Thomas Stickney, Capt. Nathaniel Abbot, Capt. Joshua Abbot, John Bradley, Deacon John Kimball and Lt. Richard Herbert and finishes with the memoir of the Penacook Indians.

2 CD: Diaries of the Rev. Timothy Walker
Joseph B. Walker
(1889), 2004, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 80 pp, paperback, Heritage Books
Rev. Timothy Walker was born in 1705 in Massachusetts, graduated from Harvard College in 1725, and settled in Pennycook (now Concord), New Hampshire, in 1730. For the next fifty-two years he would minister to the people of the town. He was possessed of “good mental abilities, a good education, strong common sense, and marked wisdom” and he served the people as both spiritual advisor and temporal counselor. In the latter capacity, for instance, he made three trips to England over the course of thirteen years to obtain redress for the town’s residents in their fight against the claims of a company that had “little existence but upon paper” and sought to wrest the town from them; he was successful in pressing his claims. Rev. Walker kept diaries for a large portion of his life. All of the extant diaries are included in this book. Three of them have been preserved in their entirety while six are fragmented. Entries cover some or all of the following years: 1746-1750, 1757, 1764-1766, and 1780. This collection affords “vivid pictures of New Hampshire life on the Indian frontier while the question of English or French supremacy on this continent was being decided and while the inestimable privileges of American independence were being achieved.” Joseph B. Walker’s annotations add greatly to the identification of people, places, and events mentioned in the diaries. Original full name and subject index. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a “real” book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep the page numbering consistent.

Hard Time in Concord, New Hampshire: The Crimes, the Victims, and the Lives of the State Prison Inmates, 1812-1883 (Book & CD), Milli S. Knudsen

3 Hard Time in Concord, New Hampshire: The Crimes, the Victims, and the Lives of the State Prison Inmates, 1812-1883 (Book & CD)
Milli S. Knudsen
(2005), 2008, 6x9, paper, index, 560 pp and CD-Rom, Heritage Books
Many crimes were not reported in New Hampshire's local newspapers throughout the 1812-1883 period. This might lead researchers to believe that this period was relatively crime-free; however, the lack of coverage was due to the newspaper's space limitations rather than a lack of criminal activity. Here is the story of the prisoners, where they came from, what put them behind bars and what happened to them and their victims after their crimes were long forgotten by newspaper audiences. Whenever possible, these are the original accounts of the news reporters, the victims, and the prisoners. This fascinating history opens with a detailed description of prison conditions and the court system. Cases of murder and attempted murder are presented in chronological order. Cases of robbery are grouped according to the type of theft. The section devoted to miscellaneous crimes includes cases of bigamy, adultery, rape, sodomy, arson, concealing the death of a child, cruelty to animals, forgery and fraud, and counterfeiting. The outcomes of court cases and the lives that were affected relied heavily on the professionals involved. Therefore, brief, alphabetically arranged biographies of the doctors, lawyers, judges, and sheriffs who participated in the investigations, arrests, and trials of the prisoners have been included. The valuable information preserved on these pages will delight historians and genealogists; but the accounts themselves, augmented by a lively narrative and seasoned with a dash of humor, keep the pages turning. Researchers will appreciate the appendix containing bibliographic references on each prisoner and authority figure; the index to each subject, place name, and person; and the supplementary CD-ROM containing the original database of all 2,100 prisoners.
