Thanks for the photo
Thanks for the photos. I think this proves that this Wm H Howard is not the one I'm looking for.

Thank you!

Many thanks for locating and photographing the gravestones of John and Elizabeth Clewly Clifford. They are my g-g-g-grandparents and I hope one day to visit that cemetery in person.

Abraham Dow
Thank you Ben for the pictures of Abraham Dow's grave and cemetery. I've been trying to read the inscription on the bottom of his gravestone. I thought perchance you'd be able to make it out from the original.

I also noticed that poor Abraham's headstone that remains standing, but it looks like there were others buried on both sides of him. What's your make on it?

If there's anything I can do for you down here in DC, NoVA and MD, please let me know.
I belong to the DAR and have access to a huge and incredibly awesome library, not to mention the Nat'l Archives and the LOC.

Again, thanks so much!
