Hamilton-Hayes Cemetery, Wayne County, Iowa
Dear Cathy, Can you tell me how to get to this cemetery? It looks like the cemetery is located in a field, and the map doesn't show any roads to the given location. I am planning on visiting the area around June 5, 2015. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you Rhonda

Sarah Jane Donaldson
Find A Grave Memorial # 86596581
Sarah Jane (Donaldson) Smith-Adams' death certificate has her parents as Abraham Donaldson and Barbara Shutley both born in New York.
Here are the census records I have for the parents I have, Abraham and Barbara Donaldson:

1850 Hopewell Township, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, Census page 14 & 15, 102
Donaldson, Abraham 31 M Farmer Pennsylvania
Sarah 28 F Pennsylvania
Mary A. 8 F Pennsylvania
Martha 6 F Pennsylvania
Rachel 3 F Pennsylvania
Calvin 1 M Pennsylvania

1860 Hopewell Township, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, Census page 283, 94
Donaldson, Abraham 41 M Farmer Pennsylvania
Sarah 38 F Pennsylvania
Mary A. 18 F Pennsyvlania
Martha 16 F Pennsylvania
Rachel 14 F Pennsylvania
Calvin 12 M Pennsylvania
Sarah J. 10 F Pennsylvania
David 8 M Pennsylvania
Samuel 2 M Pennsylvania

1870 Green, Ashland County, Ohio page 26, #178, 182
Donaldson, Abraham 52 M W Farming Pennsylvania
Sarah 46 F W Pennsylvania
Calvin 21 M W Pennsylvania
Sarah J 18 M W Pennsylvania
David 16 M W Pennsylvania Idiotic
Samuel 12 M W Pennsylvania

Her death certificate also lists her birth year as 1851 and on her headstone it is 1853.

I don't know why her death certificate lists Barbara Shutley and not Sarah? Of course, we both could be wrong???
