REYNOLDS HISTORICAL GENEALOGY COLLECTION Corporal Wilbur F. Chidester, East Watertown, N. Y., wounded 29 .March. 1865.
I fulfilled all your Rogers requests at Trinity Church by Wall Street in NYC today. When I got to the Mary Rogers page you said someone had posted the wrong photo. The photo is correct. According to the church web site, the headstone marks the site of a vault and there are no other stones around so the vault is probably quite large. There is a small green marker under the stone that you can see in the photo. The marker is illegible but it probably says there is a vault there. According to the church records, the following people are buried there:
WADDELL, JOHN (FAM VLT HEADSTONE) 1762 Here lies Interred/the Body of John/Waddell who/departed this Life/May 29 1762 aged/47 Years 7 Months/& 15 Days

Re: the Thomas Mitchell family cemetery in Glocester.
I appreciate your stewardship in caring for the "electronic graves" of our ancestors Thomas Mitchell and his daughter Abby (Mitchell) Greene.
Thomas Mitchell is one of my favorite ancestors, having served as a fifer in the Rhode Island Continental Line Regiment through the entire Revolutionary War, including that horrible winter at Valley Forge.
You mention that the Greene family is your direct line relative. What a small world, as they are mine as well! We must be cousins.
Thomas Mitchell's daughter Abby Mitchell Greene (#19055468) is my GG Grandmother. My direct Greene family line is through her husband Welcome Greene.
Here is my direct Greene line , retaining the name Greene right to my mother: Surgeon John Greene Major John Greene Samuel Greene Samuel Greene Joshua Greene John Greene Welcome Greene m. Abby Mitchell above Thomas Mathewson Greene Dutee Thomas Greene Dorothy Stewart Greene (my mother)
Are you also a descendant of Welcome and Abby (Mitchell) Greene? If so, we'd be 3rd cousins.

Rogers family I am still trying to sort out and find further information about Jonathan Rogers who married Hannah Cobb. My visit to the Exeter Town Hall did not have the names of his or Hannah's parents listed nor their place of residence. Also noted that there is a Benjamin Rogers who married a Lucy Cobb listed in the same book, married by the same person. Is it possible that two brothers married two sisters?
