RE: Boulware photos
You are very welcome. I was visiting Perry from New York, where I live. My G grandmother came from Perry, and I wanted to see where she grew up. Always like to do a few photo requests when i can.

HI Ron,
Thank you for posting this stone and information. I am descended from Harriet Benson who m. Cephas Williams in Winhall VT. She is said to be a dau. of John Benson & Elizabeth and was b. in Stanstead PQ,CA. I have been searching for her f. & m. for many years and now believe they may have d. in CA and the ch. farmed out with Benson relatives in Winhall-ch. of Daniel. This is based on Winhall census records which I went through yesterday. I wondered how Harriet ended up marrying Cephas, when I could not find her parents anywhere in VT. I think now I know. But of course there is much research to do to confirm these assumptions. The information you provide is helping with this project Thank you!

I da Ellis
Not listed in Angelo, meaning if she is buried there, there is no headstone.
and A. Ellis is the only one listed in Oak Grove, also meaning he was the only one with a headstone at the time Ralph listed them all.

AHA Ananias...
I looked at the other listing, which just has the names, and A Ellis is listed, so at that time when Ralph Henderson transcribed the cemetery there was a headstone for Ananias.. and it is recorded in the Monroe Co History room. So chances are it is on the map at the cemetery. ...sorry to confuse you!

Hi, I attempted to look up their lot in the Oak Grove Cemetery and they are not listed on the online cemetery listing on Lutheransonline where I get most of my info for this cemetery. However, I will leave the request and maybe it is on the map at the cemetery. I am not sure when I will be going to the cemetery to photograph, its been pretty cold and they keep the hilly sections roped off until warm weather.
