My Family members or in the Colfax Cemetery:
1) My 2nd ggf Memorial # 112194049 Albert James BENJAMIN
2) my 3rd ggf Memorial # 111985961 William Robert Benjamin Sr.
3) My 3rd ggm Memorial # 112193891 Happy Always Benjamin Thank-you in advance. I have been building my family tree in Ancestry; I have added some pictures to some of the memorials. I would like to add my grandfatherís name to their memorial. My Grandfatherís name was Walter George Benjamin, my Grandmotherís name was Wilma Pounds Benjamin, and they were both from Colfax. I grew up with spending time in Colfax and have very fond memories. MY Mom was Phyllis Benjamin Rogers.
RE: Sophronia Curtis Blodgett I don't have any pics of Sophronia but you never know when someone might have one. I am glad to find out your husband is related. That would make us cousins. I am actually related on the Curtis and the Blodgett side. I've researched both lines quite a bit. I'd be happy to share with you what I know. Thank you again!
RE: Coresta Hoagland Photo The tombstone is in very poor condition. I could barely read it in person even by braille--I only found it because I have a copy of a transcription that was done in 1984. That said, I played around with the photo in Photoshop and also looked at the transcription (which unfortunately was not literal) and here's the best I can do:
(top two words unreadable) memory of CORESTA O. wife of Joseph (unreadable, presumably Hoagland) d July 18 1874 Aged 37 yr 9 mo also (unreadable word) daughter EFFIE died July 23 1874 Aged 1 mo 13 da
How sad for Joseph--it looks like Coresta died shortly after childbirth and then their daughter died a few days after her mother.
