Gravestone Carvers
Be Very Careful, Researching gravestone carvers can be very addicting, Eastern Connecticut in my mind had some of the finest carvers to walk the face of the earth. Many of which even found there way to your area. But then again, your where there is known the "Boston Style" And that's an entire art form to itself. I try to stick to Eastern Ct. carvers. If your interested in the carver of the stone you commented on you can look up the Manning Shop out of Windham County Conn. It was a father Josiah 1725 - 1806 and his two sons Rockwell 1760 - 1806 and Frederick 1758 - 1810. The stone you commented on was one of there more plain ones. If your really interested in gravestone artwork, you'll be amazed at some of the works they put out. http://www.ctgravestones.com/gallery/manning.htm http://www.lib.uconn.edu/about/exhibits/gravestones/mannings.htm

Davidson/Murphy
Hello again:

When I went to take the photos of Samuel and Sarah Davidson I saw several other markers with the surname of Murphy. I went ahead and took photos of the other grave markers and have posted the information for the Washington Cemetery for these other individuals. I am currently out of town and will post the photos when i return.

Samuel & Sarah Davidson
Hello again:

I went back out to the Washington Cemetery today with copies of the Texas Death Certificates for Samuel and Sarah Davidson. I spoke with a very nice lady at the cemetery office and she checked their computer records and found that Samuel Davidson is buried in Section B. Lot 045,
Space F; and Sarah Davidson is buried in Section B, Lot 045, Space E. I walked Section B but did not find the graves. I may have missed them. I will check with the office once again to see if they can help pin point where Lot 45 is located in Section B.

Samuel & Sarah Davidson
Hello:

I went out to the Washington Cemetery today to locate the graves of Samuel & Sarah Davidson. I first went by the cemetery office to get the location of their graves. Samuel and Sarah were not listed in their log book. I checked Texas Death Certificates for both of them and the death certificates record that they are buried in the German Cemetery. I know that the Washington Cemetery is the Old German Cemetery. My guess is that there are no markers; so, the cemetery does not have a record for them. If you know what section they are buried, I will take a second look to attempt to find their graves. Sorry I could not be of more help.
