RE: Charles O. Blake
No, I am not familiar with this Blake, but that is not to say he wasn't a cousin. My Clyde Blake was ultimately a descendant of a Theophilus and Margaret Blake who were indentured servants (came together already married ... which is unusual for indentured servants) to Philadelphia in 1745 (birth dates unk). After completion of their contract they stayed in Pennsylvania for only a few years before buying and moving to a one hundred acre farm in Bath, VA, taking all their children with them. Theophilus died approx. 1797/98 and is buried there with his wife. Many of their descendants moved and proliferated with large families throughout WV. The direct lineage from my Clyde Blake to Theophilus Blake does not include any other man with the same name either directly or through siblings. But as I said, there were many lines of Blake descending from the Theophilus, and I am not familiar with all of them. The most well known Blake lineage is Jasper Blake through Hampton, NH, but there are other lineages as well. Hope this helps!

Buffum Plot
I found and photographed (to be posted tonight) the following Buffum stones:

Ruth C. 1893-1961
Albert C. 1817-1855
Mary 1790-1859
Samuel 1786-1859
Nathan A. 1859-1862
Lydia S. 1828-1912

Within the Buffum plot (which is demarcated with granite corner stones) I found a stone in the same style of those above with the following name: Hortense Audubon. No dates. It is set separate from those noted above.

Also, within the 4 corners of the plot, there are more ornate gravestones for a Caleb Ordway, died 11/24/1884, 58 years, 12 months, and a Clarissa M. Ordway, his wife, died 9/7/1895, 68 years, 2 months. If you want photos of the latter, let me know.

RE: Charles & Annie Buffum
Hi -

I can photograph all of the other Buffum stones if you like. The cemetery is about 2 miles from my house.

I believe I did see a Nathaniel Buffum stone.

I also found a Charles Buffum (1820-1898)
in the Orono Riverside Cemetery, and there are several more interred nearby. I took a photo of the central Buffum marker and of Charles' stone if you are interested. I suspect you might be more interested in the Lunts.

I'll go ahead and accept your changes but then change the place of death to Whitehall.

RE: Mike Solomon photo
Yes, that is correct. The Solomons are in the east half and Hiltners are in the west half. Now that I think about it, usually when the plots are designated like that (east half, west half), it means that the plot was split and sold separately, which means that there is not necessarily any connection between the two.

Thanks for your interest in John Johnson. I have transferred him to you. This grave is in cemetery where I have ancestors, but the yard is in disgraceful condition. I took pictures of stones that were still legible, as they may not be so next time through. Hope you will add the good info you have for him so others can benefit.

Thank you to both you and "littledarla" for doing so much to help me bring my family "past" together. All the work that you both have done, I cannot express how thankful I am. You two are the best. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

RE: Joanna Kimball Vaughan
I don't know for sure about the other Kimball graves at Independence are related. I haven't worked on this family line for awhile.

There are other Kimball's buried at Horse Meadow Cemetery, North Haverhill, Grafton, NH. Also at West Street Cemetery, Rutland, Rutland, VT.

Hope this helps. I can not dig any further for you right now. With the holidays , my caregiving for my husband with Alzheimer's.

After the first of the year, I should have more time, I hope. Are you related to the KImballs? If so, we probably are distant cousins.

Best Wishes,

RE: Moses & Lucy Kimball
Yes, Joanna Kimball Vaughan is Amos and Lucy's daughter and the birth date is correct.

She married Benjamin Vaughan. She was my GGGrandmother.

I have all of her family on Ancestry on Booth Family Pathways.

Happy Hollidays,

Hi, I am going to remove my entry for Leslie Crouch, as it is a duplicate of an earlier entry. You posted a very nice photo to the page, so will you please put it on the original entry at same cemetery, before I remove mine? Thanks a lot, Ted K

RE: Lower Water St. Cemetery
That would make alot more sense of why there is no trace of it now,didn't know they built tracks right over it.No sign of the train station anywhere in town either. Makes you wonder how many towns they did that too,thats not right at all.I give you a shout if i ever find out anything new about it,chances are no-one will ever know now.Thank-you for your input.Take it easy.

Photos of Wait and Wm Scott
Was wondering where you got that wonderful photo.
I am related to the Scott's through their great grandfather, Capt. Jonathan Scott and Abigail Safford. My Robinson family along with the Scott's, Saffords, Fays, Harwood's ect were all close friends, family and neighbors in early Bennington. Thank you. Doug Robinson

RE: Orono Cemetery
Hi,we did look down there once a few years ago after reading the same book about Orono at the library and never saw any signs..We'll have to get ahold of the sexton and find out exactly where its located this spring.When we do i'll let you know if we find anything.My dad always talked about it also,but said there were is no sign of it today which is a shame that there isn't.We'll have to work on that to make sure it does get respected as a cemetary,nothing has been built there since.

Hello - I have a photo of the grave stone. However, I am not able to add it to the memorial unless a photo is removed. Would you please consider removing the cemetery photo so I can put the stone photo on? Thank you - Kimberly
