RE: William Pinckney Cooke Okay. Thank you for the quick response. I have put in some request for pictures of other headstones. Hopefully I can get those. William's sister Barbara that married Jesse Lay, is my 3rd great grandmother. If you have any other information or even pictures that you would be willing to share, I would really love to have them. If you would like to email me at the email address on file, that would be great. Hope to "talk" to you again. Linda
William Pinckney Cooke My name is Linda Olsen (#47343820), Judith Cooke is a distant relative of mine, 3rd great grand aunt. I was curious when you took pictures of the headstone for Judith and William Cooke, did you happen to get pictures of any of the other headstones in that cemetery? Last names: Lay, Odom Thank you for your time.

RE: Lemuel Robbins Jr Sorry on that one, Bruce. I was all confused with the Jr's & Sr's and all the children having same names and too tired to be sending requests. Mainly, I just wanted to share the new link with you. Now, I have to find John , Jeduthan's father and husband of "Jehosebeth Jourdaine Robbins"
RE: Jehosebeth Jourdain Robbins Hi Bruce: Thank you for your additional information on this memorial. As requested I added Jehosebeth's maiden name. I also found in the Plymouth Colony Records Jehosebeth's marriage to John Robins, and added it to her memorial. As far as year of birth, her gravestone does say she died in her 83rd year and the year she died was 1723. If you subtract the age (83) by the year of death (1723) yes, that would give you 1640. But there is room there. You do not know which month she was born and the gravestone says in the 83rd year of her age which means she was probably 82 years old when she died. There are many births in Plymouth Colony which are not documented. You did mention a book about the Nicholas Robbins family. Is this available full text on-line? I would not mind adding the information from the book to my memorial as long as I can document where the information came from. I feel documenting the information gives researchers and family seeking ancestors the discretion to either accept or reject the information. Thank you once again, Sandy
RE: Lemuel Robbins Bruce, I'm going through a piece right now that lists Johnathan. There is no other info on him which makes me think he died young or some time after birth. I'll paste the piece here, starting with Jeduthan's father, John Robbins.

RE: Lemuel Robbins The oldest towns in the present county of Windham were granted by the Colonial government of New Hampshire. Of New Hampshire Grants on the east side of the Green Mountains, the seventh in chronological order was called Townshend. Lemuel Robbins was one of sixty-nine grantees for a tract of land to contain five hundred acres there. It seems all burials of the district before 1799 were on the farm of General Fletcher.
I think I'll have to create a memorial for him as burial unknown, as no way to prove he's buried there.
