RE: Abner Norcott Family
Oh my head! What a truly unique cemetery that was, which makes it extra sad that they had the stones removed when they left the area. Thank you for the link to that postcard. Couldn't believe the price... it must be very rare. I didn't even come close to picturing it in my head from the descriptions.

Sad about Henry too, and you are probably right about why and how he ended up with the Shakers. What a horrific experience for someone so young. I'm glad you knew where he was buried and are making a memorial for him so he isn't forgotten.

RE: Abner Norcott Family
I checked out the memorials for Henry and Maria and was so surprised to read about the Shaker Cemetery where Henry is buried! So weird they would remove all the headstones and even weirder to think that it is against the law to stop at that cemetery. Wow.

The only one I ever heard worst than that was that they used the headstones from cemeteries for fill and sea walls in the Golden Gate Bridge area in CA. Then one of my own grandfathers way back was buried in 1850 in the TN State Prison cemetery which is now under a strip mall. Sad to think how many people's graves have been disrespected in this country in the name of progress.

RE: Abner Norcott Family
Okay I sent a request to Connie to link Abner Jr to his parents. She stays on top of her edit requests and does them very quickly, so they will be linked soon.

I don't have any info on Abner Sr's other children, because I wasn't really researching that family. So if you have info and know where they were buried you can go ahead and make their memorials, if you'd like.

RE: Charlotte Blodgett
Thank you so much for letting me know her parents names. I like to have as much accurate info as possible to help people find their relatives. I linked Charlotte to her parents and sent a link request to have Abner Dick Norcott linked to his parents.

Thank you again,

RE: Elijah Gray

I have moved Elijah to the Sherburne Quarter Cemetery. The you sent I am unable to reach and goes an empty page at the DAR Library. Since a stone was located for his wife, I have left her at Sheridan. It may just be a marker - we will never know - or she may be buried there. His Father and Step-Mother are both buried in the Quarter Cemetery (both of whom are my ancestors).

I encourage you to join the Mayflower Society if you can prove through documentation that you are BLOOD related to Wm Bradford. I've done it. I'm related to TWO of the original Mayflower pilgrims.

RE: Grave marker?

While there is a grave for Elijah Gray in the Sheridan Cemetery next to his wife Sarah Raymond Gray, there may not be a grave marker for him. I have not requested a photo of his headstone or for his wife's headstone.

You mentioned that you believe he is buried in the Marengo Village Cemetery. Is your source from local papers, family papers, etc..? There is no mention of a burial in the Gray Genealogy by M.D. Raymond for him.
