I wanted to let you know I have added her death certificate to the memorial. It is not on the opening page.

RE: Joseph Farnham
Hi Jon and Jan,
I was so happy to be able to supply a photo of your Gx4 grandfather's stone! I will have to give you a bit of the back story. I grew up in Madison, Ct which borders Killingworth where this cemetery is. I used to frequent this cemetery as a teenager and once, at age 17, wrote a letter to the Historical Society and town paper asking for the land to be better tended to as I noticed the stones had the names of founding families and several war vets on them( French/indian, Revolutionary Wars). Since then I moved to Boston but have continued to visit that cemetery. In the past few years I discovered that my own family genealogy connects me back to the founding familes of my hometown. What an amazing surprise! I am not connected directly to anyone in this cemetery but for some reason I feel connected in spirit all these years later ( I am 47 now). Over a year ago my daughter and I were there. Many of the stones are being eroded and falling simply due to their age. I photographed about 100 stones and thought I would send images to the Historic Society but never got to it. Last weekend I realized it would be more helpful to post to Find A Grave and was SUPER excited when I saw I had 2 stones that had a request for a photo. Yes, for some reason I read that the stones were not found by another volunteer....it can be confusing walking around a rural cemetery and was likely an over site. Because it was so long ago I am not able to tell you at this time where they are located or if the other two family members are there, and if they have readable stones. However, I will go there this summer and look for you! You can count on it! The cemetery is small; smaller than a city block. I will be more explicit about the location of Joseph Farnham's stone next visit. If you ever went It would not be hard to find though. The Killingworth Historical Society has some interesting information about the beginings of the town... have you ever searched there for possibly stories about the Farnhams? Also, it is quite possible that the maiden names of the women could be other founding family surnames. I wish you luck and will get that info for you at a later date. All the best- Kristen

RE: Cain cemetery
I tried to find her father but was unable to find a headstone with his name on it. There are several headstone in the Cain Cemetery that are not legible as well as several unmarked graves.

I will check again the next time I go. I have some materials to help me read those headstones that have very little relief.

RE: Underwood Cemetery
Jon:
Thanks for updating me. The County Manager tried to look into it for me, but made no headway. Hopefully, it is all intact. If so, can you ask your source if she could update the errors on the maps previously posted so we can get a more accurate placement of the stones?
Once again, thanks for the information.

Michael

I have added information to J. N. Horine and Mary Horine's memorials. I also added a note to the T. J. Horine memorial. I believe T. J. is Thomas Jefferson Horine, son of Jefferson Napoleon and Mary. I am related through the Dean family.

RE: family
Hay! I think I talked to the same person. I always thought the elder one was just Benjamin, but he could have another name of Redden. I haven't seen evidence one way or the other. Hmmmm.

Amasa Read
Hi!
I'm glad I was able to help with your Read family. You asked that I add some detailed info to Amasa Read, son of Ezra, who is buried in LA. You are the owner of his memorial, so only you can add that info. You can also link him to his parents to help complete their family. If there is anything else I can do to help, please let me know. Good luck with your research!

I have all the headstones you asked for but they are saved at too high a pixel. I have been trying to fix that all weekend, my computer skills aren't as good as I thought I guess. ;) I should be able to get those to you as soon as I have that accomplished. I have a map of the cemetery itself that I could scan and send OR when y'all decide to
come visit give me a holler and I'll be more than happy to show you how to get there and where they are located. My email address is vausp@msn.com. I am more than happy to help. R.A. Rhodes's headstone is really dark with mold but the caretaker is cleaning it for me this week around Wed. so that I can take a better picture for you so don't freak out when you receive this one! It's good talking to someone that understands how enjoyable this is. Thanks for asking me. I am also really close to LA if you have anymore sites just ask.
