RE: Mable I Hibbard Barton
No problem, I enjoy doing this kind of thing. I actually spoke with the cemetery caretaker who told me that it was he that created the list of location of all of the interments. He also told me that if the picture is not on Find A Grave, there most likely is no marker.

The Riverside Cemetery in Endicott was added to the national historic register a few years ago, and he did a lot of work at that time getting ready.

Hi Olin:

I just found an exact reference to the burial place of John and Lydia Headlee. After googling "Stingwell Farm", I got to the Headlee Family History by Bill Putnam on line (which I have seen before). Under "Lydia Headlee", it refers to the location of the farm on the "north end of the Stingwell" and states that John and Lydia are buried there. It also indicates some descendants are still living on the land!

RE: James Gilbert Photo Request
Thanks for getting the info. I am just waiting on a few others that requested photos from Windsor Grove to get back to me. I should be getting there in the next week and a half. We have had quite a bit of rain this past week. I just hope the graves are not under water.

RE: John T. Headlee
Hi Olin:

Thanks for your reply. I unfortunately do not have the burial place of John Headlee. According to one reference, he died at Stingwell Farm, Greene Co., PA--maybe he's buried there or in one of the 2 Headley cemeteries, and just not entered in find-a-grave.

We hope to make a trip to PA in the fall or next spring and conduct a search, as well as visit the grave of my husband's ancestors, Ephraim Headlee and Samuel Fordyce. I guess you and Jerry are to some degree related! His paternal grandmother, Guilla Mason Wilson was the granddaughter of Sarah Jane Headley, daughter of Phineas and Matilda Headley (I see that Phineas, John's son, is buried in Headley cemetery # 2)

Thanks again for your work in recording the graves of ancestors.

RE: Mrs Lovicy H. Akin Fell

Well, it's been a very long time since I've been to this cemetery but if I remember correctly, all the headstones like this only have one side with any information (name bd etc)

I took all the headstone pictures in that cemetery up to 2006 or 2007. If there was a headstone for her husband, I would have added it to Find A Grave. However, I could have missed it. That's always possible.

I no longer live in that area so it would be difficult for me to go there to find this memorial. The headstone would have been next to this one. Usually the wife is buried next to the husband but not always I'm sure.

It looks like Piper Funeral Home records were added to Oakwood Hill Cemetery for her husband so he is there somewhere. He just may not have had a headstone. However, I can't see why that would be the case. Hopefully you can find someone who can take a look and get a photo for you.

Would you like this memorial for Mrs. Lovicy H. Akin Fell transferred to you? Let me know and I'll do that.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help about the other memorial and headstone picture.

dear Olin,
I have changed the DOD to reflect your date but kept the original in quotes and added a note to explain why and who gave the different death date. If you'd rather not have your name in the memorial, just let me know and I will replace it with your Find A Grave number
All The Best, Marcialyn

My genealogy fees are pretty reasonable. Where do I send the bill?
If you need anything else from Spring Hill Cemetery, let me know or just request on Find A Grave.

Olin: Thanks for your response. Many folks don't know that only 20% of those buried in the National Cemetery are actually identified. He could very well be buried there because those that they could find were transported here. Unfortunately because of their condition, they were not recognizable so they are in unmarked graves. I found out about five years ago that I had two uncles who fought here. They were out of the 12th N.H.. On 3 MAY OF 1863 their unit took the most casualties. They were like left out to dry. Terrible leadership and I would rather say they didn't have any. To think a commander doesn't know where his troops are. I later learned that they had four brother-in-laws who also fought. Two of them actually being in the same unit. One later lost his life at Cold Harbor and the other finished out his enlistment. I didn't find my uncles burial site til about five years ago. It was shortly after I started into this genealogy. Actually found him through Find a Grave. There was a G.A.R. named after one of them in Ashland N.H. and I was trying to locate any records on that G.A.R. I had contacted a fellow from a neighboring town and he gave me a few suggestions to try. Lo and behold, about a month later he sent me an email stating he was on Find a Grave. I had checked it probably a month or so before that. Strange things do happen. Good luck on your searching. Sometimes you can just google the name reference genealogy and sometimes can find things like that, or, Soldiers and Sailors of the particular state. Next time I make a trip back to the cemetery I will take his unit info and see if they have anything in their published documents. If there is anything else I can help you with out this way, drop me a line. Ross

I'll be going soon anyway. It's my me-time. While I was there last time, I found this grave nearby. I'm not sure if she's kin, but she was married to a Joel Henson Sr. Her page is # 147346861

There is also a Esther and William Taylor stone next to Robert's and Hannah's stone that are almost identical. Maybe mother and father? Or older brother?

Erastus Headlee
I had checked with the Park Service and they have no record of Erastus being buried in the cemetery. That is not to say he isn't there because there is only 20% identifiable. What was your source indicating he's buried there? Ross

RE: Robert & Hannah Taylor
No problem. Their Daughter was next to them so I took her stone photo and added it to her Find A Grave. I went ahead and made the connection with her parents.

RE: Ransom Leonard Barton
I just found Rensselaer Ward (RW) Barton. He is buried in Hiawatha Cemetery, Owego, Tioga Co. NY. He is FindAGrave #146-545-776.

I have not been able to find his 2nd wife Harriet L. (English) Barton. His first wife Anna M.(Phillips) has a stone in the Appleton MN Cem.

RW's father Rensselaer Barton (1815-1898) is buried in the Hiawatha Cem. He is Find A Grave #107927502

RW's mother, and Rensslaer's 1st wife was Nancy Ann (Currier) Barton (1819-1860). She is #146621-505.

Rensselaer's 2nd wife, Effa Ann (Frear) (1836-1911) shares a stone with him.

He may be from a different branch of the Barton tree, or even unrelated. In the late 1800's there were quite a few Bartons living in Appleton MN.

FYI, adjacent to Nellie Hartley's grave are the graves of James Hartley (1858-1919) and Alice Hartley (1864-1948).
