|Ann Bechan||Lucretia Felton|
I checked in the materials I have from Oakham, Massachusetts, regarding Lucretia Felton. I was unable to find any record for another Lucretia or for a Silas. I do believe that the grave site posted as being in the Center Cemetery is likely of Lucretia Sturges (Nye) Felton, wife of Benjamin. It seems highly unlikely to me that two Lucretia Feltons would die during the same year in Oakham. My only hesitation in saying definitely that the Lucretia indicated (erroneously, I believe)as being buried in Oakham Center Cemetery is Lucretia Sturges (Nye) Felton is that one source lists a death date of March 26 and another of August 26. Even the source listing the March 26 death indicates burial in Pine Grove cemetery. I am going to try to contact the person who first listed the grave as being in Oakham Center Cemetery and see on what information she based that listing.
Meanwhile, do you have access to the Felton Family Genealogy? It was a source for Henry Wright's Genealogy of Oakham. I discovered that it has been reprinted by Higginson Books and is available for purchase: http://www.higginsonbooks.com/genealogies.html
Good luck in finding your Lucretia. If I can ever be of help in finding information regarding other Oakham-connected graves, don't hesitate to contact me.
|Ann Bechan||RE: Lucretia Felton|
Sorry that the Lucretia Felton in Pine Grove Cemetery is not the correct one. I've copied down the information that you specified about your Lucretia and will see if I can find anything about her.

According to his NC death certificate, Elmo R Barbour's dates are incorrect. DOB should be 9/26/1912, DOD 10/13/1915.

THANKS FOR POSTING THIS. HE WAS A HARD ONE TO FIND. HE WAS MY GREAT UNCLE.
|Roy Aycock||Martha Parker|
I just wanted to thank you for the work that you and your party have and continue to do. I have been searching for my great GrandMother and found that she is buried at this cemetery. Her name is Martha E Parker born May 6, 1856 and died November 4, 1933 and she will be added to this cemetery. Thanks again.

Thanks for the correction of death year.
|Midge Frazel||Lucretia Fay Felton|
I am preparing a presentation for the Rice family and saw your request. I will try to get back to Springhill for the sister.
I took the husband also, which I will post soon.
My husband is a Fay descendant.
