No, there are no stones for Henrietta and Sarah Hirst. If you click on the photos to enlarge them, you will see that I left notes on the photos i.e. "location of Sarah Hirst's unmarked grave" Sarah is noted as SG, which apparently means single grave, and I figured out the location of her grave using the nearby marked graves as reference points. As for baby Henrietta, I'm not sure, other than her grave is probably in this general area of the cemetery which includes the known Hirst lots and also the "baby" section of the cemetery. I searched it all, no stones for either child, which really isn't unusual for this time frame. Perhaps there was originally a wooden cross or some other marker which is now gone. On memorials which I manage, I usually write "unmarked grave" in the "add note" section of the memorial and include a photo of the empty location. You might consider having stones set now for these children. If so, I would highly recommend LaBrake Memorials in Saratoga Springs, who made the stone for baby Ellen Margaret #48905859 at Greenridge Cemetery...take a look... although it looks like marble, it's really white granite and should last a very long time.

Great obit for Sarah Sipperly... I didn't know that she was a Hirst too! :-) Alice
