I saw your flowers and note on Jared Gardner's memorial at the Gardnertown Cemetery. I have Bowdish ancestors buried in the cemtery as well and I visited in 2012.
There is a passage about the cemetery in one of our Bowdish genealogy books that I wanted to share with you.
"The stone wall was built by Jared Gardner and others in 1858, the date is marked on one of the stones near the gate. The wall is in good condition now. Thomas Green said it would 'stand as long as the earth lasts.' The stones were quarried near there, some of them are six feet, or more, in length."
Jared seemed like a good man.
