Pots, pans, silverware, and a foot warmer were among the nearly two dozen items stolen from the New Hampshire house where statesman Daniel Webster was born, a state parks official said. Webster, a lawyer and orator who served as secretary of state under three presidents and represented Massachusetts and New Hampshire in Congress, was born in the two-room cabin in Franklin in 1782. Randy Kovach of the New Hampshire State Parks told WMUR-TV that most of the items, which were taken sometime between July 3 and July 8, are replicas and don’t have much value. Franklin police said they’ve reached out to pawn shops and are using K-9 dogs to try to track down the items.
