Hiram Parker was born in 1805 in Lyman, NH. He was married to Martha J. Jones of Pittsfield, NH. The Parkers were in Hart's Location as early as 1830, living on the north edge of the Saco at the lower end of town at the base of Hart's Ledge.
Hiram Parker was the first town clerk of Hart's Location, elected in 1835 and serving 1835-1837 and 1872-1880. He served as a selectman for 33 years. He also served as moderator, tax collector, and school committee member.
Children born to Hiram and Martha (Jones) Parker in Hart's Location:
Lauryann G. Parker, 12 Nov 1830
Thomas Jefferson M. Parker, 28 Apr 1832
Martha Jane L., 29 Dec 1833
Hiram Jr., 5 Nov 1835
On 15 Mar 1883 Hiram deeded his two lots to George W. and Laura A. Gray of Madison, NH.
There is no record of Hiram's death, but it was probably around 1883. Martha is buried in the Parker/Cobb Cemetery, where a footstone marks her grave. She died 13 August 1877 at the age of 69. A depression in the ground next to Martha's grave may indicate that her husband is buried beside her.
Harriet Maria Parker was born 21 Sep 1842 and married John N. Glidden of Newmarket, NH on 24 Feb 1872.
The above information is taken from "Hart's Location in Crawford Notch, New Hampshire's smallest town," Marion L. Varney, Peter Randall Publishing, 1997. It contains much more Parker information including a tintype of Harriet Maria Parker. I think it's still in print and available through Marion Varney.
