The grave of Turpin Kilby
Hi,

Yes, both photos are correct concerning the area where Turpin Kilby is buried. The woods where the graves are located are out in the middle of a field. The day I went out there, the grass in that portion of woods was a bit tramped down- may have been a deer sleeping area.

Turpin's stone is very hard to read- but his family Bible is still with his relatives and it lists his information. His family lived close to where the graveyard is- if you are familiar with the area- it is located in Elmont- which was known at one time as "Kilby's Station"

I think I am correct, that his is the only Kilby grave that is known in the graveyard, the others are for the Davis family- who were neighbors of the Kilbys. The Davis house still stands- and as the crow flies, is very close to the graveyard.

I hope I have answered your questions. If not, please contact me again.

All the best,
Sandy

Thank you so much for your message. I just leave flowers so someone else must have left the picture. Just look for the name under the picture or the name of the memorial creator and that should help. Hope you get the info you need. Best ever, Sarah.

RE: JOHN THEW- KNOELL/VAIL CEMETERY
All of the John Thew(s) that I have listed (1760, 1784, 1788) indicate the inscriptions as I read them from the headstone. Unfortunately, the camera doesn't always give us a good result... plus the day I went to Knoell/Vail it was raining--it's already dark there but the lack of light is evident on the photos.

good luck!

thank you! hearing from people like you make it so worthwhile and I'm glad to be able to help.

The Knoell Cemetery (aka Vail cemetery) is accessed over private property. Looking at the map on FindAGrave in Hybrid mode will give you more visual information. If you'd like to visit this cemetery the next time you're in the area, I suggest you contact the Orange County Genealogy Society ahead of time--a volunteer may be able to set you up.

Lovely hearing from you. Good luck with your research!
