Hi Don

Just touching sides... hoping all is well? I sent an email a few days ago, with no response... just hoping everything is well in your world.

Take good care.

Springfield Cemetery Question
Hi there Don!

Hello! Hope you have been enjoying the summer. I consider you the go-to person when it comes to Springfield Cemetery and hope you might be able to help.

Someone contacted me with questions about Urana and Betsey Ellis buried in Springfield. You can see this by looking at Betsey’s memorial, #102293283. I photographed the headstone and created the memorial but have very little information about either one of them.

I found census information for Urana living in 1860 in Springfield, but with a John and Mercy Albert and Abagail Houghton. The relationship between them is not clear but Urana was apparently born about 1813 in NY.

For Betsey I could only find that in 1870 she lived in NY with Peter Ellis. She was born 1818 in NY.

Curiously enough, the 1850 and 1860 US Census for Peter Ellis show that he was living with his wife named Bathsheba, and this is one of the 3 names listed on another side of the same monument showing Urana and Betsey Ellis. However, this Bathsheba lived from 1802 until 1861 and apparently lived in NY. There is also a Find-A-Grave memorial for a Bathsheba Ellis buried in a Steuben Co., NY cemetery but without a headstone photo.

I am trying to tie all this together and was wondering if you had any information about any of them.

Many thanks in advance and take care!

Kindest regards,
MrsJB/47730809

Hey Don,
Thanks for the pic of Simeon Bonds grave stone. He is a relative of mine. I have some of his military records and wonder where you found his cause of death. My records indicate he died of complications of his ankle wound received at Fredricksburg. Any info would be appreciated.
