You might be interested to note, that I just posted an older picture of him. He was the second husband of Marcia Bowen Marsh. I descend from the Bowen family and have several pictures.

Hi, was just wondering if this Valeo & Darlene Rathbone ever lived in South Mills, NC. Darlene at the time was a hairdresser & Val (as we called him) worked as a printer in Va.

|APBandMoore||RE: 114667030 Joshua Rathbun|
Thank you. Yes, its Joshua Rathbun Moore. His dates in an index to Rhode Island, Births and Christenings, 1600-1914 show he was born October 29, 1837 and died February 1, 1839. That would have made him 1 year 3 months 3 days old at the time of his death which doesn't agree with the tombstone. I think there might have been a transposition of the day of the month of his birth with the day of the month of his death. The index also gives his name as Joshua *Rothbun* Moore, although the tombstone appears as Rathbun.
I have Joshua's mother's maiden name as Mercy J. Locke, Mercy's father as Joshua Rathbon Lock(e) b. South Kingston, RI, and this Joshua's mother as Elizabeth Lucy Rathbon. Any Rathbon's in your family tree?

Yes...She was my Gr. Grandmother and William Henry Wyrick, my Gr. Grandfather....a very complicated family history. She was married to Joseph Stevens before she married William Wyrick.

|Randy H||Melessia V. Rathbun|
If you think this is the same person (Melissa Vernette Rathbun was born 09 Jan 1847 and died 09 Dec 1852) I'd appreciate your source.
The info I have is specific about the spelling of her first name, and states that she was born in December 1845 and died that same winter. This came from two of her sisters, Maria (Rathbun) Whipple and Helen R. Rathbun, through my grandmother who was their grand niece.
Thanks much, Randy Hayward

|Jen Snoots||RE: Restoration|
About restoration of West Street Cemetery, I don't know that much is done beyond basic maintenance of the grounds. Here are two articles you might find interesting
There are a number of veterans stones that have been replaced, but the stones for non-veterans don't seem to get much care (there are a few exceptions). I remember reading a news story from the 1890s about vandalism in there (it's always been a problem), and they named off the stones...and 100+ years later I found most of them, broken, probably never repaired. Heck, I found a story from the 1850s about the bad state of the cemetery...a lot of people ended up being moved to Evergreen when it opened because it was a lot nicer.
The best person to probably contact is Tom Giffin, who is the cemetery commissioner in Rutland and also the Pres. of the VT Old Cemetery Association (VOCA). You can find contact info here
Hope that helps!

|Nadeen Sobottka||RE: Flora Dillon|
Hi Robert, no, I'm sorry I am not able to tell you who else is buried with Flora, if anybody. I see that there are no other Dillon's buried at the Forest Home Cemetery that I am aware of. And the picture I took was last Fall, so I wouldn't have it on my memory card any longer, otherwise I'd see who came before and after Flora's tombstone. You will have to call the cemetery. Their phone number is (414)645-2632. Regards, Nadeen

Mr. Rathbun was quite a nice man. The village of Morris park is named after him. He was a charter member of the Morris Rotary. I will get a photo up there for him before too long. Just wondering if you had him in your Rathbun genealogy.

No problem - I had someone down as having a child at 104 years old once and someone sent me a correction. We all work together to get things as accurate as we can.
