I stopped by the cemetery in Kingston thinking it would be relatively easy to find your requests in a small graveyard, but I was wrong. The headstones in the timeframe you're looking for are in poor condition and mostly unreadable.Many lie flat on the ground and are partially overgrown. If the Church can give you specific locations, I'm willing to try again. Sorry I couldn't get them for you.

Proof of marriage in 1769? Annetje was 11 years old at that time.

|Richard Stevens||Dr. Benjamin Stevens|
Hi. There are two Benjamin Stevens in the Stevens Family Cemetery in Franklin Township, Fayette county, PA. The tombstone you describe says that Dr. Benjamin Stevens died in 1812 (03 Jan 1812) aged 38, which means he was born in 1774, not 1737. His father, Benjamin Stevens, Sr., was the one born in 1737. He is the other Benjamin Stevens buried in that cemetery. If you could correct this, I would appreciate it. The older Benjamin was not a doctor. He could not read or write, since he signed his will with his mark. The younger Benjamin was the doctor. If you would make the corrections, I would appreciate it. Thanks!

Judge Almon Stark is my 5th Great Grandfather. Secondary to fathering my 4th Great Grand Mother with an "Unknown Mother" he married an Elizabeth Van Sickle. They are buried together in the Stark Cemetery not far from my home. I think that James was his brother.
Does this help?
Peace, and many blessings,

I just wanted to drop a note. My name is Gary Minor. Jim Bess and I worked together for many years at Jewish Hospital. We had so many great times...He loved to tell us guys stories and he could sure tell them. My wife and I bought our first computer from Jim and Karen.
I will never forget Jim. He was truly a neat guy to be around.
His friend at Jewish Hospital.

Unfortunately after Debbie looked in more detail at the cemetery records I have to change tack again. The records for the cemetery do mention her, but just as being the wife of Jacob Powley, but do NOT say that she is buried at Cataraqui United Church; there is no specific confirmation that she is buried there.
|Brant Gibbard||Annethe Powley again|
Hah! I spoke to soon. I just heard back from the person who heads the cemetery committee at Cataraqui United Church, and their records indicate she may very well have been interred in Section C, immediately to the south of the church, which would put her not far from the place where here husband's stone used to be located before it was removed. Unfortunately there is still no stone to photograph (if there ever was one) so it isnt' possible to fill the photo request.
|Brant Gibbard||Annetje Powley|
Hello Cheryl, I see you have created a burial record for Annetje Van Voorst Powley in Cataraqui United Church Cemetery. What is your evidence for her being buried there? Her husband is certainly buried there (although the stone is no longer in the cemetery, it had broken in several pieces, and I gather is now in someone's basement to keep it from deteriorating further). I have never heard of any evidence that would indicate where she was buried. I was just in this cemetery yesterday and there is definitely no stone for her.
