Hi Sara

I dont remember If I responded to this or not , but I wanted to make sure I did.. Thank you for the note, I am so glad to help you with the photos. What wonderful news that he will be getting his marker. If you ever want another photo after the marker arrives let me know .

I was looking for his resting place and was wondering through the grave sites. The cemetery workers I think thought I looked lost , and were kind enough to pull over and help me look. They showed me exactly where it was at. So I can't take all the credit, its a wonderful cemetery with wonderful people who work there. Its a very peaceful place. I have a family member buried also buried there.

Glad to be able to help you

Hi Sara,
Protection Cemetery has been a "project" of mine for a while now. I have copies of the burial records from the caretaker of the cemetery and have been plodding my way thru them. My great-grandfather, Avertia Hawks, donated part of the land when the cemetery was expanded from the original farm land that was donated by the Farringtons. I am related to most everyone buried there!

I am glad you found the map helpful. I ran into a problem with a f.a.g. contributor who refused to add the word "old" or "new" to the lot locations on any graves she "owned". That becomes a real problem because, without old or new label, there are now duplicate lot locations. I added the map hoping that at least people might realize there really ARE two sections!

Jacob and Hannah and all the "old" Farringtons are on the hill on the right side of the cemetery. I have not been back in the past year, but the easiest stone to locate will be Jacob's son, Ezra's memorial-it is still in good condition. We know there WAS a memorial for Ezra's wife Minerva because a lady by the name of "Mrs. Wagoner" walked the cemetery in the 1930's and recorded every grave she found, and she recorded Minerva's gravestone. This has been vital in determining who is buried in the old section as the actual records are a mess and the death records for Holland only go back to the 1880's. So there was a memorial for Minerva right next to her husband Ezra's memorial. Maybe someday we can locate it. Use Ezra's memorial as a reference point for locating the other Farrington graves in the old section.

The graves in the new section shouldn't be a problem as they are, well, new, comparatively speaking. I have the lot list, so if there is someone you are looking for, send me an email and I can give you the plot and grave number, I have them all here at the house.

If you are not familiar with WNY, you may be interested to know that Minerva's parents are buried not far from Holland. They are buried in East Aurora-you may even be traveling thru East Aurora to get to Holland if you wanted to stop.

Holland Town Hall has a great collection of records that are indexed by last name. You may want to check that out in town before you head up to the cemetery. They have specific hours, so check out the website or call before you go to make sure someone will be in the office.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!

Hello, Sara,

I posted pictures of the only three Ziegler stones that we found in St. John's. One is a double headstone and the other is a single stone. You are very welcome!
