HomeAbout Moss Bluff Manuscript

Frank Burnside Kingsbury was born 1868 in Michigan and died 1960 in Cheshire County, New Hampshire. He was a successful published author of many books relating to New Hampshire history and genealogy of its citizens. Mr. Kingsbury wintered in Moss Bluff, Florida and compiled information on the Moss Bluff area history and residents between 1938 and 1941. This manuscript, The History of Moss Bluff, Florida, 1835-1942 was never published although Mr. Kingsbury tried for many years to have it published. The manuscript eventually found a home in The Historical Society of Cheshire County, NH. In January of 2022 the original manuscript and addendum was given to the Marion County Genealogical Society and is now available for researchers in a searchable PDF format on this Website.
