Birth: May 5, 1780
Grafton County
New Hampshire, USA
Death: Sep. 23, 1845
Edgar County
Illinois, USA

Jonathan, father of Jonathan Sanborn Basford is buried in the Houston Stratton Cemetery, so named as the property on which it sits straddles the property owned by both families. Only 33 people are buried here, many of which are related to Jonathan in some fashion. Pity his wife Phoebe N. isn't among them. Her burial is still unknown at this time.

Enormous thanks to Lizbeth Pierce of Find A Grave for finding this burial. And even more thanks to Lizbeth and her brother for tromping out in the cold to reassemble the headstone, which had been broken by a tree, to take this photograph. Now *that's* dedication!
