Hall District Cemetery Sue, Thank you for your listing of the Hall District Cemetery in Tolland County. I've found my Foskit ancestors there. Can you tell me if the cemetery was ever called Belcher Cemetery? That is what the Hale Collection of cemetery inscriptions is calling the cemetery where these memorials are located.
RE: Rev. John Sinclair You are very welcome! I added that other photo so you could see there are other names on the front of his stone. I can take it off if you want me too. I think I walked past his stone a number of times before I saw his name on the side of the stone. Carla :)
Just wanted to let you know that I have gone to the cemetery twice now but with the snow that we have been having (winter decided to make it's presence after I stated that I would be going there, go figure, lol) many of the flushed stones (on the ground) are still buried in the snow and now with it melting from the rain, in standing water. I've been photographing what stand up headstones I can find in the sections but the snow has been pretty deep in some sections (we have had 18" in the past 2 weeks in Chicago alone) which has been making the search a bit harder. I will attempt another trip this coming weekend if it does not rain and the next few weekends to see if I can find your family for you. I just wanted to give you an update and that I have not given up on the request.
Mount Olive Photo Request Hi. I will be going to Mount Olive cemetery over the next 3 or 4 weeks (weather permitting) to take photos of my relatives grave sites and I saw you had a request(s). If you would call the cemetery office (number on the front page of the cemetery page) and get the location of the burial, I will try to get the photo request for you while I am there. Just add it to your memorial in the plot section. They are very helpful at the office. Kathy
