Congressman Abraham Maus Schermerhorn
Hi Bill,

I was wondering about the photo you left for Abraham Maus Schermerhorn.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=7258163

The Schermerhorn book say's the photo is Jacob Maus Schermerhorn who was Congressman Abraham Maus Schermerhorn's brother. I'm curious if it's just a mistake or if you know for sure its Abraham? I'm also from this Schermerhorn family and was just curious.

When you get around to it pictures of the gravestone would be great and perhaps that is where his wife Mary (we called her May) was buried as well - Thanks Deirdre

Hey Bill ....
Saw your record for MG Leonard Fish "Red" Wing. Great job on the bio my friend. Also noted your interest in Vermont. I have a webpage that might be of interest to you:

My uncle, Edwin Weber, is buried in Oakwood cemetery. He served in WW I on an amunitions train. His application for headstone or marker shows apaproval frr his headstone 17 Nov 1953 - In your travels around that cemetery do you have any records of him?

His wife Mary Virginia Darden Weber, died in Florida in 1971 and I do not know if they sent her body to be with him?

RE: Thanks for looking for John Nixon's grave
Cool, 3 of those have stones I found and 3 are on the other list and no stone found now. Good place to start poking around.

RE: Thanks for looking for John Nixon's grave
OK Bill, I hope Mr/Mrs Bates do a walk around this weekend and call to say they found John. After finding him in the history book I assume he is in the First Weybridge Hill cemetery so maybe if you go there will be a stone found. Did he have any other family names that might be near him? I have listed all I found and just added the few others that I did not find but were listed in the history book. If you see any connection in the list that might be a starting place to poke around. This is a stony/ledge area and a lot of what look like markers are actually ledge and lot of the old markers can't be read. Seems like he should pop his head up and say hi soon if we keep after him.
