Thank you for taking this photo to preserve the stone carving and information for my 6th great grandmother. Your expertise and talent are much appreciated.

Thank you for adding my picture with your added graphic to the correct Benjamin Hathaway in Oakwood Cemetery, Stilesville, Delaware Co, NY (Find A Grave Memorial# 50874535).

I have removed the incorrect photo from the other Benjamin, so you can remove the photo you posted with your graphic from (Find A Grave Memorial# 50874478).

I have a photo of the correct stone and will post it once you remove your incorrect photo with the graphic. Thank you for posting, just wish you would have pointed it out to me when you did it so I could have corrected it three months ago rather than just stumble upon it while preparing his bio and links.

Side flash Technique?
You have gotten excellent results on your pics at Center Cemetery in Cabot, VT.
I recently read about a synchronized flash method.
Is that what you used?
I might invest in the equipment if I can achieve similar results.
Thanks in advance for your reply!

Yes, the stone was a reburial from the reservoir. The man's name is George Sands. At the base of the stone are two vertical caskets as you describe. If you can send me your email address I can send you photo's of the stone if you like. My email is

Hi Mary,

Thanks for the info. I have run across several stones thru-out the area,
that I felt may have belonged to this group of carvers. We have one such
stone in the Sanford Cemetery here in Margarteville. This particular stone
has two carved coffins near the base of the stone. They are saying this was
carved by the "coffin man". Supposedly story goes that the number of
carved coffins indicates the number of bodies in the grave? This stone only
has one name on it.

I can email you photo's if you send your address.

Thank you so much for this information. Do you have a primer on his work--what to look for, date range of work, etc? I'm "tracking" carvers on my contributor page using the virtual cemetery feature. If I know what to look for, I can help identify his work... many thanks!
