RE: J Wilson Photo Request
The cemetery linked to J Wilson is called County Farm Cemetery. It was a poor (alms) house where people who were poor, widowed, sometimes ill went to live. They were asked to help farm the land to provide vegetables and take care of the animals. The cemetery was only discovered a few years ago. Is it possible that J Wilson may be buried somewhere else?

J Wilson Photo Request
I recently visited the County Cemetery and photographed all the markers. They are only marked with numbers 1 through 48 and one other stone is for a George Miller with no dates listed on it. Is there any information available as to who is buried beside each number? Also there is a you tube video that mentions that there may be upwards of 400 people buried there and hinting that there may be more than one body below each marker. If you have any more information on which marker to post a photo of, I would be glad to post it for you.

RE: Etta (FAG 88446961)
Judging from the dates of your missing child, I think this grave is not your Etta.

The row where she lies is older than that, and the burials I saw along that row dated from the 1850s to 1870s. It is obvious that many of the burials there no longer have markers--they are sunken below the turf, or they have broken, disintegrated, and disappeared. Her grave is unique because of the way it was made, and it is in good shape.

Most of the burials from the say, 1910 time frame are a different style and done with different stone. White marble was still used but nowhere nearly as often. I base my guess that Etta's grave is older more on location--even the corner marker of the plot section has disintegrated. The next plot over has the burial of Enos Harvey--he is now listed in find a grave with his wife. Their 1850's to 1870's era gravestones are in pieces.

The grave is small enough that I believe it is for a child not more than four years old. I have not checked a library for a cemetery list, but I can do that when I get home. I am curious about her, too--but she is of an earlier era, I think.

As to locating a farm cemetery, I am not familiar enough with the area to know where to start. Could she be listed with others on a family stone somewhere, and have been overlooked?

RE: Philip Hoffman
Hello,
Thank you for the message and I am happy to help. After visiting the Spring Grove Cemetery, I went to the village hall and had a conversation with a lady there. We talked about the Spring Grove Cemetery and she informed me that she hosted "cemetery tours" in the area and gave me a booklet on the cemetery where Philip is buried, and there was some additional info on the HOFFMAN family history. Please let me know if you are interested in this and I could scan a copy for you. The lady in the village hall said she would love to have any additional information on the family descendants. Are you a Hoffman family descendant?

I will be out of town for about a week. I could look into it for you--I know of none, but I don't know the cemetery so I would not know.

I am adding some photos to her memorial that show how her grave is situated.

RE: Etta (FAG 88446961)
I went to see her grave again, and it is odd because it sits all by itself, with plenty of room for other graves on either side--I assume those plots are filled, but the markers, likely being marble, are gone. The closest graves, all apparently in neighboring plots, are surnames Shotliff, Harvey, Herrick, and Wilbur. But none are close enough to be associated with her lone grave.
