RE: Johnnie Powell Earley
You're very welcome. I had been wanting to visit the cemetery because my wife has ancestors buried there. It was a spur of the moment decision when I stopped for gas in town. I had the time. What I didn't know was if there were any photo requests, so if I fulfilled one for you, then it was my pleasure. The reason I photographed her headstone was because Earley is one of my ancestor names, though none that I know of were in Missouri. Glad I could help!

RE: Samuel Hickcox/Hickox
The grave was located using a map created in 1938 through the local D.A.R. chapter, which still oversees the maintenance of the cemetery. When the inventory was done, complete transcriptions were made of all the markers. Samuel Hickcox' marker only has the carved figural face at the top of the marker remaining; however it was inscribed as follows:
In Memory of Mr./ Samuel Hickcox/ who departed this life/ Sept. 9, 1778 in the 30th/ year of his life./ Of generous temper, unshaken zeal/ He stood undaunted for his country's weal./ He was what you and everyone should be,/ Calm, temperate, just, thus his portrait see./ Admire his virtues, follow where he trod,/ Beloved in life, then died approved of God.
The transcription can be found in "The Old Burying Ground of Ancient Westbury and Present Watertown", published by the Sarah Whitman Trumbull Chapter, D.A.R., Watertown, CT, 1938.
Hope the information is helpful.

Here is a link to a site for the cemetery. There are pictures of some of the stones that might be of interest to you. I haven't been able to find this cemetery yet.

RE: Peder Olson, Nelson, Minnesota cemetery.
I think you have solved a mystery for me. Here is Peder Olson, same location. He sometimes used his Norwegian farm name of Dokken on some records. so I entered Peder Olson and did not make the connection between him and the gravestone that simply said Uncle Peder.

I also think his brother is in the cemetery in an unmarked grave, the victim of a terrible train accident in Nelson Minnesota. I will have to dig to find that.

Peder Olson, Nelson, Minnesota cemetery.
Hi Pat,
I have methodically row by row photographed all the gravestones in the Nelson Cemetery, and entered them on There was not a gravestone for Peder Olson, as per your request.
There may have been a wooden marker at some time, but that is long gone.

Even after entering all the stones, familysearch stats indicate that the Nelson Cemetery is only 83% photographed, but there are many areas in the cemetery where it is obvious that there are graves because of the sunken ground.
It is possible to find his grave location, since the Cemetery records indicate his burial plot:
Plot: Sec 1, Blk 16, Lot 1 1W

I guess that should be my next project, mapping the cemetery.
