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 ... View more info

From its beginning as a state, New Hampshire provided for the poor and unfortunate who resided in its towns. Individual towns had systems in place for dealing with the fate of indigent persons: support, punishment or removal.
