RE: James Hawthorn
Could you put this short Bio in?
James and Mary Ferguson Hawthorne were both born in County Armagh, Ireland,
near Belfast.They came to the United States of America in 1842. After
spending a short time in Passaic County, New Jersey, they came to Troy, where they met O.P. Ballard, a mill owner, who loaned them money to buy a tract of land at what is
now Windfall (so named because of a tornado that felled many trees).

RE: James Hawthorn
Thank you for the change. From the angle of your pic it is hard to distinguish the 6 from a 0. James Hawthorn is my husband's great great grandfather. He was an immigrant from County Armaugh, Ireland.

James Hawthorn
I sent you an edit request for James Hawthorn, windfall cemetery, suggesting to change the date of death to 1886. I have examined the stone personally, (this is my husband's Great great grandfather) and notice that last number to be a 6 and not a 0. He does show up on the 1880 census but that was completed in June. If you require more proof than my personal observation, I will try to continue to dig for something that can give me his year of death. Thank you in advance.

Helen: this is the back of my great aunt Grace Kennedy Lamont's tombstone. It has fallen over, so her name does not show. She was the daughter of John Phoenix Lamont and Bessie DeEtta Rought. She died of pnuemonia at age 3. Links:
