Mahala Kimble Atherton @ Paupack
Looking at the cut of the stone in the one photo, after the fact, hours after having left the cemetery, I'm wondering if her stone ever had her name ... should have examined the top edge, may have been the remnants of "Mother" ??

It is a lovely graveyard, set on a hill above the lake (which was created many many years after burials began)in a pine wood, and surrounded by a lichen covered stone wall. There are a couple dozen unmarked field stone headstones.

Mahala Kimble Atherton @ Paupack
Hi again Allan ~
I just posted two photos of Mahala Kimble Atherton's broken tombstone located in the Atherton plot to the immediate left of the large granite marker for her son, Chester & daughter-in-law Eunice Atherton.

Her name is missing altogether but the dates are almost exact.

If I get up there again I'll shot a photo of the family plot - wasn't thinking it through, battery was running low!

Best, Jane

RE: Helen Simons
No problem. I am descended from Conrad Gumble, so always nice to add to the family lines.

Tree stumps
Went back and looked at Conrad's photo. I don't see anything but the headstone. What are you referring to? Is this the photo you mean?

RE: Conrad Jacoby
Right now, I'm concentrating on the one born 1730.

RE: Conrad Jacoby
No, I didn't notice the stumps, I'll go back and look. I agree, it's a shame. I do about as much looking at trees in cemeteries as I do stones :)

RE: Conrad Jacoby
I contacted the woman who took the photo and she wrote back with the translation, it is:
" Here lies Conrad Jacoby, born on June 7, 1730 and died on March 26, 1795. He was 64 years, 9 months and 19 days old."
I'm working on finding out more about his parents and when his family immigrated to the U.S.
Do you have anything on the immigration?

Conrad Jacoby
Any idea was the inscription on his stone reads? I am descended from him and researching the Jacoby family.
