Capt. Ben Start, father of "Doc"
Andelot Farm Cemetery is in vol 4 of Tombstoning in Kent County. Benjamin is entered as "Stark" is why I haven't found this before. The Home Farm entry for his wife, Catherine Lyzer has the citation for Stark being a misspelling. Are you familiar with the cemetery location? I will call Eddie at the farm office and find out what getting access entails if you know someone with a really small yard who would like to exercise their string trimmer. I wrote the Conservancy who referred me to Fish and Game where a clever lady knew the inside procedure and that Eddie was who I should call. I will redo my entry for Doc and his then unknown father. Cordially, Grace

RE: Start/Startt
Thanks, I have been on this since 1994; Jack's relatives had already done the "easy ones." Benjamin "Doc" apparently had siblings Jerome 1835, John W 1842 (not sure who furnished the dates, maybe the one you have,) James 1847, Franklin 1849. Also on the same sheet, from the Start file at the Centreville library, suggests Capt Start, Doc's father, had two daughters with a first wife, besides Catherine Lyzer. It has Solomon 1832 as son of John and Nancy, also. I thought he might be a sibling of Doc. Anything you in your other searches relevant would be very welcome. "Tombstoning..." has none of these folks as far as I can tell.

Do you live near Kent County MD? Do you know about Benjamin Stark/Start being buried at Andelot Farms? I am interested in whether that grave is marked and accessible for a photo. Some large tracts were transferred to a conservancy but I don't have enough local geography sense to know if Andelot Farms were included. Thanks, Grace. I research for Jackie Carpenter, great, great grandson of Doc Start, who I determined was still alive in 1890 being it is he who appears on the Veterans Census. He served in the Army from 1853-1858 at Benicia, CA and left a pretty big family in Shasta County and "left with the soldiers" per a granddaughter, now deceased.

RE: William Burton Hamilton
I'm curious, how did you happen to add Wm B Hamilton? He is my Great Grandfather. Is there a connection?

RE: Boggs Family
Great; I loved to have copies of the originals. My email is

Thanks again,


P.S. Did you happen to see any other older Boggs markers buried next to Robert and Margaret?

Thanks William for the great Photos, and thanks for all your time and effort. Robert and Margaret are my great-grandparents and its wonderful to see that their markers are so well preserved.

Well Done,

RE: Eastburn wide shot
Thank you for explaining! I would be happy to have you transfer the memorials to me. They are distantly related to me, but they are related to me. Thank you for your help. Alane Beck
