NOTE TO READERS: I have listed his burial at the old cemetery in Spencer, Ma behind the congregational church. The original cemetery records were burned in a fire at the church many years ago. However, that is the most likely burial ground for the time also his son is buried there. Many of the original gravestones do not exist.
