Piscataqua Region refers to a general area of early settlement in NH (Strawberry Banke, Oyster River, Dover etc) rather than a town. The settlements are in the area of the Piscataqua River, the mouth of which forms at Portsmouth, NH. The Thom(p)sons from Plymouth England are well documented and you should be able to locate a burial place from the Piscataqua Pioneers or other NH local historical society. There is also a book by one of the Thompson descendants which may include burial places. By the way Thompson Island in Boston Harbor is also named for the family. If you can't find the book thru a lending library email me as I have some notes on it.
