I'm doing my best to connect family links (parents and children) to my kin (direct and collateral) and really appreciate all who have kindly added the connections for me. I'm glad to add yours also. |
Check out http://www.graveaddiction.com/symbol.html if you're interested in the symbols found on gravestones. Neat informative site. Are you a taphophile or tombstone tourist? I am.

I may have a bit of new info on his wife Elizabeth "Betsy" McCleary Tate. I am a James Tate descendent. There are a couple of family letters.
|Susan McMullin||Hugh Andrews|
Added another photo.
|Susan McMullin||RE: Hugh Andrews 18842041|
We will check that other piece when we go back again. I assumed that the second piece belonged to Hugh, but didn't really look at it.
|Susan McMullin||RE: Hugh Andrews|
I was mistaken -- we did find Hugh Andrews' marker, and I posted it to FInd A Grave. Unfortunately, as you can see, the marker is broken. We hope to do some repair on stones in this cemetery in the future.

Thanks Lindy...I get lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time...sometimes :) Natural sunlight is the best product of all to use on a hard to read marker :)
|Darrell Landrum||Thomas and Susan Johnston|
I am not certain, but it appears both of their markers have been cleaned with some sort of solvent. I posted new photos of both of their markers to your memorials. Maybe take a look and see what you think?

Thanks for your input on his date of birth. Allen was using a typewriter and there was no white out then. I will change my records accordingly.

|Harry Miller||Mintus Northup's Freedom|
Thank you for adding the message regarding Henry Bliss Northrup which you added to Solomon's memorial. I note in Solomon's memorial that you have indicated that Mintus Northup, Solomon's father, gained his freedom by inclusion in the will of Henry. Actually it was Henry's father, John Holmes Northrup, that had brought Mintus with him from Rhode Island, as a slave, and then released him in his will. Solomon was then born a free man. Solomon in his book wrote "As far back as I have been able to ascertain, my ancestors, on the paternal side, were slaves in Rhode Island." "They belonged to a family named Northup."

Sorry for another note, I spent a considerable amount of time in the cemetery there in Lexington this past summer. I have a photograph that I took of his marker that I thought you might like. I am not posting it to your memorial as it will remove one of your photos already. If you would like to see it, send me an email and I will be glad to send it to you for your use.
