RE: Z. H. Curtis
I plan on going to the cemetery soon, and photographing all I can. Hopefully i will get that headstone too.

RE: Z. H. Curtis
you're welcome, by the way there is a note of

Z.H. "Little Jay has Gone to Jesus" from transcripts from graveyards in the northern part of Columbia County 1936. Could this be the same person? There is no other name or dates on this headstone. Know anything about it? Clytie

Now that I have looked at the online correspondence you have had with Barbara Doxey, I am even more impressed with your efforts to find this cemetery. And I see that you are a descendant of Samuel and Elizabeth Thompson. I suspect that I am, hence my request. I hope to find out what happened to their son Charles Thompson, who may have been my gt. gt. gt.grandfather.

Thank you for the effort you went to so as to photograph the tombstones for Samuel and Elizabeth Thompson. It is much appreciated!

RE: Peake/Finchley cemetery at old Barry farm
Congratulations. You got much further than I did. I just got to the house and then got cold feet about trying to find the gravesite. Is it near a highway that is an extension of the Massachusetts State Highway when it gets to New York? The extension is supposed to go to Albany.

Didn't I warn you that there could be rattlesnakes in the area? That was later told to me by the now deceased head of the Daughters of the American Revolution chapter at Hudson, New York.

Thanks for telling me that you went. You are the Adventuress of the Genealogical World for the year.

RE: The old Barry farm in East chatham
I was only there once a long time ago. I don't know if it is still accessible, or not. I was by myself and there was just an old bedridden woman in the house with a helper (the daughter was at work as a teacher). The owners of the land are not descendants of Jonathan Peake or his sister Elizabeth Peake Thompson. I was given permission to walk further up the hill toward the barn and then over the hill to the burial ground but I was leery of doing it since the area was so overgrown and I was by myself so far from home on Long Island. I was afraid of twisting an ankle or getting some kind of a skin rash. I really should have made more of an effort.

Later the head of the Daughters of the American Revolution in nearby Hudson said maybe it was just as well I didn't do it because there are rattlesnakes in the area. That poor lady died of cancer quite a few years ago.

The tombstones were supposed to be in really bad shape many years before I went to the farm. I think the burial ground might be very near the extension of the Massachusetts Turnpike in New York State that goes from the Mass border to Albany. Good luck to you if you decide to try it.

Mrs. Barbara (Farrand) Doxey
