RE: Inquire re Charles Browdwater & Family
The cemetery is on the corner of Tapawingo Rd. and Frederick St., SW, Vienna, Virginia.
Col. Charles A. Broadwater, Jr. and his wife, Ann Amelia Markham, are my 6th great-grandparents. Their daughter, Jane, married my ancestor, Col. John Hunter.

RE: Thank You
Hi Barbara,

You are very welcome. Concrete would look different from what you
see and the etching would be finger etching and not smooth

There are no other Greens in Benton Rural Cem. The walkthrough list
was compiled by Yates Co historian Fran Dumas and iis online

You are = welcome,

RE: Thank You
Hello Barbara,

You are very welcome. I photographed the cemetery on September 19
I had been there before and when a request came in, I decided to get
as many photos as possible for future requests since it is 30 mi away

It is a marble stone

I don't know what the red marking on the stone is. It looks like crayon

The inscription reads John Green died Jan 4 in his 89th year

Well, you sure are welcome. I appreciate your beautiful note to me. May
you have happy holidays!

Charlotte & Lydia Terry
The memorial stones were in very good condition, considering their age. I linked Charlotte and Lydia to their father, Phineas.
The people at Montrepose Cemetery are not very cooperative. I ran into a similar roadblock when I was looking for my ancestors there. I think the only help you would get from them is if your loved one passed away and you opened your wallet for them.
Best of luck to you and all your genealogical pursuits.

RE: Inquiry re Noah Terry
Hi Barbara- Thank you for following up and asking about Noah. As you know it can be very difficult on a weathered gravestone to differentiate between a 1 and a 4. After seeing the sources that say he died in 1815, I can only conclude that I misread the stone and I have now corrected the entry.

Please do put in a request for a photo. I have been very busy most weekends in cemeteries much furthur west than Orient point. I am not sure when I will be able to get out there again.

another nugget
have you seen Noah Terry's quit claim to Phinias Terry & Jasper Terry?

a bit more on Phineas Terry
If you search Old Fulton NY Post Cards
Phineas Terry with the drop down box "exact phrase"
quite a few references come up for surveys he did in Sullivan Co, even those referenced after his death.

And note they sometimes refer to a "pile of stones" at a boundary point on the survey ... no doubt that pile of stones was gathered and placed by him and/or an assistant/apprentice.

If you click through the specific newspaper page comes, some are more readable than others.

RE: Thank You/Inquiry
Hi Barbara ~ thanks for your kind words.

The Phineas Terry burial is interesting because he is the only Terry in the cemetery according to the Gertrude Barber transcription of many years ago:

and the only Terry I saw, as well. Sorry the photo is so washed out, glare from the snow...will try to get back one day and shoot again when the light is better.

There is a brief account of his death (in the chapter on Highland, but it also seems to include Barryville Sullivan Co / page 320 ) here:

and another ref on his mentoring one William T Jackson,in Goshen

I'm not sure about a cross over between surveying and stone masonry and am wondering if he was involved with the surveying of the juncture of three states, the Tri-State Monument, NY NJ PA but the dates don't seem to be right for that,_New_York
It may well be there were numerous surveys of this point, not something I have researched. And without doubt surveyor traveled around!

Would be lovely to locate film of the actual surveys which he would have signed. PA has wonderful records online for state surveys, none that I am aware of for NY, though they must be somewhere. I do have the greatest esteem for the surveyors of this era though, rough job, tough guys!

The deed books, Grantee Index 1809 - 1855 for Sullivan Co are online, though browse only,& show a Nicholas & James G Terry purchased land in 1827, 1831,1834 respectively but no Phineas!

Meanwhile, the Manning Cemetery has some of the most beautifully carved headstone, tall tablets. Lady Goshen took a lot of the photos, and shoots superbly.

If I happen upon anything else I will drop you a line, a thousand pardons if I've mentioned ground you have already covered.

Best, Jane
