RE: Lucius Hitchcock
You are welcome. There are Hitchcock's in the cemetery, but not his. The thing is, he could be there but in an unmarked grave. One of the city workers told me there was a yellow fever epidemic in Saint Marys, as referenced in his memorial. There is a mass grave of approximately 2000 people that they buried quickly so others would not spread the disease. No one even took the time to put names with the mass grave. Since he died of yellow fever, I am quite sure he is buried in this mass grave with no names. If you want to maybe just make a comment to that effect, it would probably be the closet thing to a picture. Also, this cemetery has a lot of character. There is a head of the Georgia KKK buried in 1928. There is also a crypt where the two wives of a gentlemen who buried them in glass coffins with their hair that went down to their feet. He wanted to be able to sit, talk and comb their hair while he talked to them.

Sincerely, Pam

RE: Hitchcock Pics
You're welcome Rosemary. I understand the importance of this work and I'm happy that I can contribute. I'm not sure if you got my email regarding the Joseph Atwater stone. I was able to dig down far enough to see "Also of Joseph H. Atwater." A few inches deeper, I could make out the word "South." This probably has to do with Joseph H.'s death in South Carolina. Unfortunately I didn't have the equipment to dig any deeper.

Regards,
Joe

RE: Old Rossman Ground
Rosemary, you are very welcome. I also have a picture of most of the cemetery posted, however it has not been approved yet so not everyone can see it. Unless you've been there the cemetery is very hard to find. Fite Rossman is my 5th great grandfather through his son Peter and his daughter Elizabeth. Are you at all related. Yesterday we had a little ceremony for Fite with myself and several other Rossmans from Colorado and Maryland. It was very nice

Cordially, Elliott

Hi Rosemary, I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you on this. The weather turned unpleasant so I shut down for the season. Things are beginning to turn for the better so I hope I can find this out soon.

Moses Eggleston
I'm contacting you because you left "flowers" on the gravestone for Moses Eggleston. I descend from a Moses Eggleston, and I'm currently doing research to figure out whether this is my Moses or not. My Moses d. 1851 "across the river" and was buried first in the Old City Cem. in Dubuque. In 1853 early his wife Olive Eggleston, nee Hitchcock, purchased a plot at what is now Linwood - Dubuque and I believe she had him moved. At first I thought he was in the plot she purchased, but after Cheryl posted the pic. I'm wondering now. Are you related to this family? I do have a fair amount of info I'd be happy to share. I intend to go to Dububque again as soon as it's a bit warmer and try to figure it all out. In any event, it's wonderful and Moses has more flowers. Marianne reed7nelson@gmail.com

Ok, I went back to the cemetery and it looks like cassanora at the top of the headstone. Also, on the side theres another name. I took pics of that plus other surrounding headstones with the name hitchcock if you want them.

RE: Hannah Hitchcock
The creator of the memorial knows very well that the Cemetery office has no record but insists, with no corroborating evidence or clue, on ASSUMING that they were buried in the Elm St. burying place and removed to the Springfield Cemetery in 1848 among the 2,000 unidentified remains that were placed in a mass grave. How "convenient" for him!

You're welcome Rosemary. When I get back to Hillside, I'll see if I can make out the rest of Joseph's inscription.

I am not directly related to her , my GG grandmothers sisters son was married to her. Our old family album had many pics that had little tabs of paper labeling relatives. One of the tabs had Jaskas name, but fell off the pic. So I was wondering if you had a pic of her so I can find out which pic in our album may be her.

Thanks, amy

RE: Munson and Amelia
Hello Rosemary,

No no, please don't think I am upset, that you brought Munson & Amelia to my attention, I'm not at all. When I spoke to my son in law, he said pull them, because he didn't want me to have to sort out any confusion, (He has been very protective, I think he's worried that my cheese will slip off my cracker) so I pulled them. After a bit, I pulled out my records to check a few things out and reference his great grandfathers notes. The year 1910 that he had wrote down had a question mark after it, with, "Can't be Woodlawn it opened in 1910", further notation states "West Avenue most likely correct burial of Munson and Amelia, checked, no headstones found". It appears that he did not pursue it any further. I have completed photographing West Avenue cemetery in 2010 and I too, found no headstones for any Hitchcock.

How strong I am, well...... we raised 8 children and I am very strong on tenacity, I could always hold out longer than my children. Are family has always maintained a great sense of humor, so I owe a lot to that, in helping to move forward. With the love, strength and that great humor from my children and 2 wonderful son in laws, we are moving forward.

I thank you for your kind words, understanding and offer of prayer. These are wonderful gifts that other family, friends and even strangers have graciously given, it's very much appreciated. It has been a hard road forward, I miss them all very much, especially my husband and son.

A notation on the West Avenue Cemetery in Canandaigua, they have no older records, they have long been gone. Old burials have only been noted by what is still left of headstones in the cemetery. I will be moveing Munson & Amelia into West Avenue Cemetery with notation: most likely buried here, but have no concrete certainty.

The Best to You Rosemary and Yours,

Hitchcock, Munson & Amelia
Hello again Owlady,

Upon pulling out some of own notes, I have re-entered Munson & Amelia (Case) Hitchcock back into Woodlawn Cemetery. I was the original creator and I feel that removing them was premature. I will do a little more checking, as I believe I know where the problem lies.

The Best to You and Yours, Buttefly~Kisses
