Hello. I went o Mt. Hebron Cemetery today to photo the above graves. They are buried in West Lawn, Lot # 27 N.E. There is no grave marker. I was escorted there by someone from the office and we found the plot. They are surrounded by Frank Thompson, Hazel Jackson Harry Minard and Jacob Schaefler.

Do you by chance know who created the Old Alonzo West Cemetery on Find A Grave? I've done a bit of research and I think they have the location wrong. I'm not certain on that yet, but I'm working to verify it.

RE: Old Alonzo West Cemetery, Huron County, Ohio
I don't have relation in that cemetery. I work in the smaller cemeteries in the area that most people over look. I have been thru most of them and this one finally peaked my interest. I will be doing a lot of research to try and find out more before going back out there. I would be more than happy to keep you up to date! This is a big thing for me as I'm sure it is for you as well! I'm hoping to get thru the area before cold weather sets in. If there are more headstones, a lot of times, if they're buried, it keeps them better preserved. I truly hope that's the case. It would be awesome to put some names with this small cemetery.

Old Alonzo West Cemetery, Huron County, Ohio
I visited the property owners on 8/21/2015. The woman I spoke with has owned her home for just over a year. The house was built in 2001. Her neighbors have been there about as long. Her and her neighbors have heard about the cemetery and have discussed its location. When the pond was dug for her neighbors home there were no human remains found. The cemetery was not located at that spot. When the house that she now occupies was built in 2001 they had to delay the building of the foundation because they found headstones, but no human remains. She has made contact with several organizations and no one has records or knowledge of this cemetery existing. I know that it did exist because the woman I spoke with showed me 2 pieces of headstones that were used as stepping stones by the previous owners. The dirt that was moved from both locations is behind her home in a 4' by 8' section. No one has investigated the area as of today. I have obtained permission from the current property owners to come back out and investigate the site upon making proper arrangements. Her and her husband are discussing the possibility of erecting a memorial stone in honor of those that were buried in this location.

On locating the information on William Moses Simmons (Moses Symonson) just google the name in parentheses. Remember that the family had been in Holland for a number of years and were using the Symonson spelling as appropriate there as the spelling of Simmons. William was living next to a minister. He and his wife were on the third ship to Holland.

RE: Jacob Newkirk
I'd been planning to visit the churchyard for some time, it's right in back of where I live - unfortunately, it's in kind of tough shape. Lots of tree limbs down from the hurricane and the early snow that came through. Also most of the stones are so weather worn you can't read them - where there are stones at all and not just empty plots or stubs of stones. This is one of the oldest cemeteries in the states tho, so I suppose you are lucky if you find anything. :) Best to you and your family this Thanksgiving! -Ben

Interestingly, that obit is dated "December 5, 1865", and speaks of Mrs. Shepherd having died "a few days ago", yet her death date is given as "December 5, 1865" in other sources.
I think the obit may have run in a long defunct local newspaper called "The Jersey City Daily Times".

Best regards,
