I started doing our family tree when our grandchildren started arriving, sixteen years ago. I now have a 6 year old grandchild who lives with me, and is fascinated by my work. Therefore, I am trying to find out our relations for her before my time here expires and I join the world of our ancestors. I do have difficulty in obtaining information as I live in Australia, a very long way from where her ancestors came from.|

Oops...Barb D. provided the photo in 2009...and it is far better than mine.
This is a peaceful cemetery. I could hear children's voices from a nearby farm being carried by the air. Sits off a dirt road over-looking valley and mountains. A lovely New England country cemetery. Very old resting place...many stones unreadable, but, someone has been taking good care of this cemetery for a couple centuries.

I think that Meltiah Cheney Amidown and her husband Henry Amidon are buried in Windham Center Cemetery in CT. They are great grandparents x5 (I think) of mine..I have a photo request in for their gravestones if the markers can be found..
I love tracking my Amidon's. On my Find-A-Grave profile page, right under my email address is the link to my Amidon database on Rootsweb.
Thanks for moving your 3 Cheney's. I just got two more people to get ahold of to do the same.
Have a goodnight.

I noticed you moved one Elizabeth Cheney, but I found one more Elizabeth who d. 1789 and a Wales Cheney. Both belong in North Orange Cemetery.
Your help is greatly appreciated. Glenn Wallace has already moved all his memorials for the Harrington's as well.

I hope you can help me. I am trying to untangle burials in Jones Cemetery, N. Orange, Mass. that belong in North Orange Cemetery, N. Orange, Mass. Someone merged the two cemeteries even though they are separate places.
I am going to email FindAGrave staff to remove the statement that North Orange Cemetery is an alias for Jones Cemetery.
I found that you maintain a memorial for Elizabeth Cheney who died in 1789. My records indicate she belongs in North Orange Cemetery. If you could edit the burial locations of this one and any other that don't belong, I'd be very appreciative.

YOU'RE VERY WELCOME, DON.

I went back to East Parish Burying Ground to look for Abigail's tombstone. I located the plot number (877), which is between Joseph Cheney (plot 878, d. 1754) and Mary Cheney (plot 876 d. 1755). There is definitely not a visible tombstone there. Sometimes the cemetery buries tombstones that are damaged to protect them from further damage, which could be the case here. The Newton History Museum would probably know.

I was unable to locate the tombstone for Abigail Cheney. The tombstones for her parents and two siblings are clearly visible and legible (I think that there are already photos of these tombstones on findagrave.com. Some of the tombstones in this cemetery have been damaged (due to age) or are no longer legible. You might try contacting the Newton Historical Society, who maintains the cemetery and has all of the records, to determine if there is a tombstone there at all.
