I think that's great!
|Patti Leland||RE: Alden Bellatty|
You're welcome. Their stone is amazing! It is very thin though. We put it back upside down to preserve it.
|Linda Bouley||Micah Gross|
Referring to #43442974, this Micah had a son Jonah with his second wife, Hannah Freeman. He is the father of Capt Micah Gross & grandfather of Micah Gross both of whom are buried at Quabbin Park near Ben F as I described before. so that is their connection to him.
|Linda Bouley||RE: Ben Gross|
Since I've done so much work on the Gross family grave sites, I'd really like to know which Micah you are descended from. Capt Micah Gross was quite famous as a soldier & is Ben's grea-great grandfather. Also, is this originally a German name?
|Linda Bouley||Ben Gross|
sorry it took so long to get back to you. I recently retruned to Quabbin Park Cemetery. the snow is long gone & I was able to find the Ben Gross stone & also who his parents were because the stone lists them as Emily (EmilY Ann Moore) & John L Gross He is buried next to his great-grandmother Elizabeth Dyer Gross & to her left is his great grandfather Capt. Michah Gross. His parents are in the row in front of him. His grandparents Micah Gross & Sarah Lamb Gross are also there. I think I mentioned to you before that the Gross burial area is quite large.
I will be putting those pics up as soon as I edit them & I will also make the correct interconnections. Ben's is hard to read, but I'm sure it's him due to the location & by tracing the letters with my fingers.

Thanks for checking the gravesite of Lois Reed & recording that her marker stone isn't there and among which gravestones she is buried.
