RE: Rev Joseph Cope Glad you liked the pictures. There's a fancy iron railing around the plot. The grandchildren and I went there yesterday after I picked them up from the babysitter's. Are you related to Rev. Cope? You may find more information about the family on the easily searchable Northern New York Library website - www.nnyln.org - Historic Newspapers
James Brooks Hi Ann, it has been a while since I worked on the family tree, I have developed a problem with my left eye, I have laser treatment tomorrow,and its not sure that that will fix the problem, anyway it may be a while before I can get the info for you, its good to hear from you.
RE: Nehemiah Hoskins #74057808 Both Nehemiah Hoskins and his son Lt. Nehemiah Hoskins are buried in the Willis cemetery (Furnace Cemetery), near the north entrance.
There are no Hoskins buried in the Tufts Cemetery (Hawkins Cemetery).... also called the "Ashuelot Cemetery" on a few web sites. That cemetery was established in 1819, many years after the Hoskins family left town.
Stephen L. Hoskins, son of Mr. Lovd and Mrs. Abigail Hoskins. Died Feb 10, 1803, age 3 weeks
Miss Almira Hoskins, dau of Lt. Nehemiah and Mrs. Abigail Hoskins died Feb 19, 1802 age 14 years.
(no name given) Here lies buried dau of Lt. Nehemiah and Mrs. Abigail died March 4, 1787, age 4 days.
Here lies buried Lt. Nehemiah Hoskins died July 6, 1792 in the 49 year of his gage.
Here lies buried Mr. Nehemiah Hoskins who died Jan 4, 1789 in the 80 year of his age in the 80 year of his age.
If you have any further questions, please let me know. Both cemeteries are located within five minutes of my family homestead.
Lt. Nehemiah Hoskins is being recognized by the DAR for his service during the Revolution. I have no evidence that his father, Nehemiah Hoskins (Sr.) was in the Revolution.
The Hoskins family came to town and purchased 58 acres in September of 1780, on what is now known as "Burt Hill" Over the next few years they purchased another 100+ acres adjoining the first lot. In a June 1784 deed, Nehemiah Jr. was listed as a "housewright."
After Nehemiah and Nehemiah Jr. died, the family sold the farm to Joseph Burt Jr. (hence the name "Burt Hill.")
Pasted below is the deed entry for the farm being sold.
Vol. 42-Page 423 Lovd Hoskins, Tisdale Hoskins, Abigail Hoskins, Ruthy Howard, Amasa Houghton, Polly Houghton, Philip Howard, Abigail Hoskins 2nd and Samuel Hoskins to Joseph Burt Jr. (23 November 1803) $1500.00 the Hoskins farm.
The only entries that I have are at the Willis (Furnace) Cemetery:
Nehemiah, d. Jan 4, 1789 Lt. Nehemiah d. July 5, 1792 Almira Feb 19, 1802 Infant Hoskins March 4, 17 87 Stephen L. Hoskins Feb 10, 1803.
Yes, Nehemiah and his family are buried at the oldest cemetery in Ashuelot. It was originally known as the "Furnace Cemetery" but in later years it became known as the "Willis" Cemetery as it adjoined the Osmer Willis farm.
I urged our local DAR chapter to honor Lt. Hoskins and Jonathan Jenks, who are buried near each other. Upon confirming their service to the colonial cause, they will be having a ceremony in September, placing DAR markers on their graves.
As a local historian, I have been asked to say a few appropriate words on both Jenks and Hoskins. If you have any info. to share in regards to Nehemiah, I would appreciate it.
