Hillsborough Center Cemetery
Up in the New Hampshire hills, well removed from the “thickly settled” parts of the town of Hillsborough, Hillsborough County, rest the bones of the Revolutionary-era couple who, more than any others, tie us to our heritage in Colonial New England. After wearing a sword at Concord Bridge, Oliver Wheeler II and his bride (they married in 1773) Hepzibah Munroe removed from their family homesteads in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, in company with a Munroe family group, as the first settlers in Hillsboro. Here is the grave out of which Granny Hepzibah didn’t quite reach to take me by the throat and turn my life upside-down.
