The early history of New Hampshire is filled with conflict between settlers and Native Americans. Little remains in the provincial records for reclaiming specific family information on native inhabitants who lived in New Hampshire or participated in those conflicts, beginning in 1675 with King Philip’s War. Those who survived were eventually pushed west and north into Canada. See Vermont—Native Americans or pages 15-16 for possible resources.
