Regarding Neely Tweed
A book was written regarding the incident in question on the front of his memorial.

Civil War Still Haunts Marshall Street by Bill States 1861 Marshall, NC.

There is many corrections that should be made as the book is NOT accurate in the details. I can send you the events that took place from his son's story in which was handed down to my father. Just send me an e-mail at

Just let me know.

John Ashmun in Blandford, MA
I will try to reveal the full epitaph. Hope it was hidden by snow line rather than ground. Coincidentally he is next to the only relative I have in Blandford Cemetery.

The headstone is located at Pleasant Grove Campground Cemetery. This headstone was place here to represent his service in the "Rev. War." He is buried at his home place (prob. private property). Have read he was probably near the barn which probably does not exist today. Do not have any photos. Are you related?

RE: Re: Thurber photo request at Mt Hope

The person who created that memorial creates and manages tens of thousands of them, so I don't know if you'll have much luck getting him to update it. (And, really there is little else he can say besides the last name of the infant since no first name is given.)

The optimal thing to do if you are no longer interested in this person is just to delete your photo request.

Re: Thurber photo request at Mt Hope

In regards to your photo request for "Thurber" (d 1841) at Mt Hope in Rochester, NY: Since the memorial contains very little info, I thought I'd fill you in on the details so you can decide if this is the person you are looking for:

This memorial was created from the Mt Hope Interment Records ( which the person as "Philip Thurber's infant" who was interred on July 21, 1841. From the plot map of the burial location and a survey of surviving markers, it appears that there is no marker for this infant, although there are for the father Philip Thurber and his wife Tirzah.

Please let me know what you want, given this additional information.

RE: Thanks
You are very welcome. I've tried to access the office to see who is buried there, but have not been successful at visiting when they are open. FYI, this was actually my second attempt to find them. There are quite a few older, damaged headstones there, so it is possible they are stacked up with others that were too damaged to remain in place.

Hi William,
I received your email concerning a photo I posted. You have asked for the exact wording on the stone. There is no indication as to which gravesite you were referring to. Can you give me the memorial# or name and cemetery?
I will check my notes,

RE: Wiborn Nichols
Here is the obituary from Shortsville Enterprise 12 November 1914:

The death of Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Wiborn, a well-known resident of Farmington, occurred at her home in that township about 4 o'clock on Sunday afternoon, following a long illness. Her age was nearly 76 years. During the month of July last, Mrs. Wiborn had the misfortune to fall and break her hip and had never recovered from the effects of the injury. She was born on January 5, 1839, in the house where her demise occurred, and she had always made her home there. Her parents were the late John H. and Minerva Power Nichols. She was a faithful member of the Manchester Methodist Episcopal church, having lately been transferred to that church from the Victor church. The survivors are two sons, John Wiborn and Francis Wiborn, residents of Farmington, and one daughter, Mrs. Gracia Blym of Phelps. The funeral obsequies were held from her late home on Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, the services being conducted by Rev. W. W. Lane, pastor of the Manchester M. E. Church. The burial followed in the North Farmington cemetery.


Hope that helps!

RE: Thanks!
I am interested in the Johnson family because I have (had) 3 half-brothers and 1 half-sister who are Johnson's . The oldest of them ( Rev. Michael Wayne Johnson ) passed away in Feb 2011 . I am working on them for my siblings; 2 of whom were born in Corbin as was I . To my knowledge for now , my family has no Johnson's buried in that cemetery . As I research, I find more information . That's how it stands for now . Hopefully you'll find someone to help you out . Good Luck on your search .

RE: Samuel Loomis
Hi William,

The large four-sided monument was in the Woodlawn Cemetery, in Suffield, CT. I'm checking to see if I can locate Samuel Loomis' actual gravestone in Westfield. For his DOD, there is only one cemetery in the area that he could be in. I'll keep you posted with what I can find & hopefully post. Thanks for your kind remarks on my pictures. I try to ensure these stones are legible before posting them.

LT Samuel Loomis
Hi William,

Well, it looks like I'm just repeating what others have already done (except you might be able to see the writing better. The monument is quite large (4-sides, with lots of details, but again stuff that is already out there, I hadn't realized that there was already a stone on the website. For most requests, that is the case, so perhaps you were looking for an additional stone? There are 3 other Loomis stones at the cemetery from the 1800s, but I have to return when the sun is at a different angle to better collect what is inscribed onto the stone.

No they didn't. There are many spaces with not stones or unreadable so it could be one of those. Sue

RE: Rowan Co., KY Graves
I did take a number of photos in Kentucky, but I live about 600 miles from there, and don't get back there often at all. I'm sorry. I hope you get the photos you want. There's something wonderful about seeing and being at their resting places.

Cyrus and Erastus
Though they appear in some lists of records online for Ontario County, I did not see evidence of burial in Bristol twp. for either Cyrus or Erastus. Cyrus died in South Bristol twp in 1852. One genealogy has death for Erastus and Sally, his wife in 1840 and 1841 respectively. There are lists at the Town of Bristol website for their cemeteries. You may want to check out the online lists at or consult with the Ontario County Historical Society (OCHS). The latter has cemetery books and newspaper records. If I have a chance in the next few weeks, I'll take a quick look at OCHS for you. Judy

Unfortunately, that cemetery has many deteriorating markers. It is built on a hillside, and a combination of gravity and erosion are taking a toll. Some of the other Hills family markers are in better shape. I believe you also asked for Silas, but did not see his marker. I will post the other Hills photos when I have a chance.

This is documented in the book Our Kin page 241

I am sorry William I am almost 2 hours from Morehead KY. I spend one day there and visited as many cemeteries I could. I have them posted on my website at you can find them on the "A Site Map" on the right. But I didn't visit the one your looking for. If by chance I get to go back there, I will look to see if your photos request have been filled or not. Best of luck!
