Albert Skorupka
John - I have fulfilled your photo request for Albert Skorupka. In doing so, I came across several other Skorupkas; some are in the same plot and three others are in another plot nearby (don't know if they're related or not). Bring up Skorupka in the cemetery list and you'll find all the names. - Eileen

RE Re Re Julia Potter
Really enjoyed your story. There is great satisfaction in a "successful hunt", and even when it might just be blind luck, it's pretty cool when you get a sense that you've been led to it. I forgot to mention that while we were looking for Julia the other day, a young lady in shorts and t-shirt (it's still winter here; there's still snow on the ground!) came jogging up the path from where we'd decided to leave the 4WD car so we wouldn't end up stuck. She silently ran through the cemetery, to the back, paused a moment, and continued running up the mountain (there is no development of any kind up that way, and this is a pretty isolated place that is not in any kind of park-like jogging condition, and it is well-up the mountain from anything, to begin with). We looked at each other like "who/what was THAT"? Come to think of it, we never did find the other marker we were looking for... maybe I need to go back there and look where she paused at the back... hmmmm.

Re: Julia Potter
After several hours in this abandoned cemetery (which is only accessible by snowmobile or all-wheel-drive vehicle this time of year), we'd practically given up on fulfilling your photo request. Suddenly, a marker was noticed in the bottom of an adjacent ravine, and further inspection gave us reason to continue the hunt, even though it wasn't Julia's (We were also in search of a local murderess' grave; The one in the ravine was neither her's nor Julia's); Still, we were inspired to look more carefully at the usually overgrown and otherwise unreadable ones. In the spring, summer, and fall, these stones are completely shaded by the surrounding woods, and obliterated by weeds because they are completely untended (even though many are marked "perpetual care"). Surreptitiously, a beam of light (again, suddenly) illuminated a marker in that section of the yard... the pursuit of which brought us in proximity to (the far more legible) HORACE Potter's marker. Careful cleaning, wetting, and side-illumination of the (otherwise totally illegible) adjacent stone (see the difference between the first and second photos...blow up that second one to see remarkable detail!), revealed it as Julia's. You are welcome. (And no, there is no suggestion as to a maiden name from this marker... But that shouldn't be too difficult to ascertain these days, considering the abundance of online resources. Good luck.) -Scott and Susan

RE: Mary Leggett photo
You are most welcome, John! Your family was my first contribution of genealogical kindness. I took more pictures of the Leggett plot. I hope they help, too.
