RE: Hotchkiss & Bryant photos
You're welcome! Please forgive me - I uploaded the pics and meant to send you this info but ran out of time that day. I put in an edit for the transcription noted. The stone does say Ester E. not Ester F. It's just hard to read from the photo. I have a couple of different shots of that stone. I can upload to the memorial or email to you if you'd like. That is also right down the street from me and I'll be there again. If you'd like, I can try to get a clearer shot for you. Some additional info - per the cemetery database and the lovely gentleman who manages it - Charles O Bryant is the listed owner of these plots. They are in the "Old Section" which is Section C. Charles purchased Lot 55, plots 1-7 in 1863 (possibly Jan 7). Ester E. Bryant is in 55-3, Charles O. Bryant is in 55-4, Hannah Hotchkiss is in 55-6. Plots 1,2,5,7 show as empty. An interesting note - on Charles' detail page, there is a note that says "first undertaker - data based on Kane County genealogical society."
Happy hunting! Susan

West Cemetery, West Cornwall Vt.
Hello! The tablet headstones in this cemetery with the tree/urn motif are the closest in style to the early gravestones I am finding in my area. There is anecdotal information that some of our first unknown CNY carvers came from that area of Vermont, but I have been unable to verify that. I was wondering if any of those stones are marked or signed, or if there is any information as to who the Addison area carvers were? As trades tended to run in families, I may be able to find the same surnames. Thanx for the great photos, BTW.

RE: Nancy Boutell
I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide. Multiple Amos B.,s lived in Danby. One Amos l enlisted for 3 years in Co F 4th Vt Regiment 29 Feb 1864 ( H. of Danby by Williams pg 312, also in H. of Wallingford by Thorpe pg 148)
He was taken prisoner and transferred to Andersonville where he died from disease 1 Oct 1864...

When I contacted Anderson National Cemetery for info on his grave location, his records had been mistranscribed a century ago. His unit was noted as Vi, not vt..They thought the soldier they buried was from Virginia, not Vermont. They assigned another name to his grave.. That person survived Andersonville prison and died decades after the civil war!

RE: Abigail W. Howe
I went back to see if she had any ancestors with a last name Woster but no, I bet it is suppose to be Newton after her mom Avis Newton. Since it is your memorial, you do what you feel comfortable with.

Hi again Janet,

Thank you so much for sending me a link message for Achsah Stevens with her mother, I did not know that she had remarried. I would have never found her. I suppose you don't know where her first husband Samuel Stevens is?

Thanks again,
Johnnie Zollinger

No, I understand it wasn't a wild goose chase. Parts of that survey are quite old, and there are several stones around the cemetery that are broken off or worn beyond any possibility of reading by any means. I suspect he's probably around there somewhere, but the stone is not longer extant. I will keep an eye out again when I do my last pass through to double check my work, but I did keep an eye out especially for this one and I never did find it.

RE: How about Spafford?
I am truly convinced that her maidan name was Spafford, not Shafford as I thought for years based on newspaper related to my gg grandfather's death. thing is I still am not finding any information about her, I believe that she was born or at least lived in Vermont before she married Noah Smith. Unknown when she married do know that my gg grandfather was born in 1837, and Orange in 1840. I did tell you that I found her memorial that indicates she is buried in Sugar Grove Cemetery Sugar Grove (Kane County)Ill. year of death 1845, along w/Noah, also there is a Howel Smith ?-1851, there and head stone indicate that he is the son of Phebe and Noah. And a George Smith 1838-1861 in the same cemetery, his headstone indicates he is son of Noah and Phebe also. To summarize I will assume she and Noah married before 1st son born in 1837 (another assumption because I don't have a year of birth for Howell), they migrated to Illinois between 1840 and 1845 with at least one son maybe two. Leaving one son w/ Noah's sister in Vt. and another son with Noah's sister in New York. What a difficult life. Do you have anything to add to this branch of the Smith family?
