Yes ma'am, I got both, but just got to your 'DNA' msg about 2 hours ago, interrupted by a long call from a high school sweetheart, and am trying to chart your branch of the Dellinger tree. I hope to have results within a day or so. :-)
I'm pretty sure I would enjoy calling you 'Cuz' or 'Cousin', no matter how far 'removed'. ;-)
Always, in Find A Grave and seemingly Dellinger brother/sisterhood or should I now say 'cousinhood', e49
RE: Jacob Rinker Cemetery It certainly is an old, old cemetery. If you look across the road and along the creek, you will see Col. Jacob Rinker's original stone house. Thomas Hudson's stone house in on Rt 42 almost to Hudson's Crossroads. So hard to believe they lived in these tiny houses with all those children.
The entrance to the cemetery is near the creek where the road bends. There is no sign, unfortunately. Look for a metal gate. Next to that is the entrance to the cemetery (not paved or gravel...just grass and weeds). You can see the cemetery from the road. have fun.
RE: Jacob Rinker Cemetery Yes, there is public access. The cemetery is a couple hundred yards from the road through a farm gate and across a field. In poor weather the gate is typically closed since there is no road as such. I've driven in in good weather and the caretaker does maintain the access very well.
