    Question you may be able to ans. My grandmother, Christine Hurd, (maybe took back maiden name Colligan) ran or owned a hotel in Rocky Hills around 1943, 44. I do not know the name of the hotel but may have heard it. Is it possible you could tell me which hotel she had, or give me a list of the hotel from that time?
    My mother, Hazel Hurd, took my sister with her to Rocky Hills so she could work there while my father was in the Navy. I was left with my other grandparents in Newport, NH.
