Norman Brooks

Thank you for your gracious reply:) When I am not sure and someone else has already linked I try to verify. Sometimes though the link that is already there is incorrect, so it works both ways.

RE: Alfred G. Smith photo
Yes, I believe he is the right one, it does say G.A.R. on his crypt. There are a couple of other Smiths located very close by (forgot the first names) and I took photos of those, as well. I will be checking the site to see if they are already on and if not, I will add them and let you know which ones they are. Because they are so close, they may be related, but with a name like Smith, it could be a coincidence.

More info later.


PS - On IPC's own website, they have lists of Veterans buried there, from each war, if you are interested.

Schweigert photo request
I wanted to let you know that the photo's I uploaded for the Schweigert requests have faint spots in the center of the monument. I don't what caused it but it's permanent not the photography or sunlight. Kathi

Hewitt family, Central Cemetery, Jay, NY
I have direct ancestor line to Samuel Hewitt through son Alden Hewitt. I noticed that find a grave has updated these graves. Recently, the will of Samuel was obtained and added to my tree on ancestry by me. Alden had been of unknown parentage until then for my family. Samuel Hewitt was married twice with first wife Mary mother of all kids except Samuel Jr and Abigail Jr. whose mother was Abigail Parker. The Way family believes that Samuel m. Abigail Way (b. 1776 LENOX, MA - d. Jay, Essex, NY) dau. of Josiah Way(b.1742 CT - d. 1812 NY). This if true means that Mary is Abigail Way. Do you have an opinion on this? Josiah W. Hewitt may be named after Josiah Way. I am researching this family of Hewitts. I want to prove connections back to Stonington, CT. Have tree on ancestry with dna attached. Dna hits to Capt. Benjamin Hewitt and Marie Fanning. Propose Samuel to be son of Joseph Hewitt and Sarah Babcock. Could we share info ? Thanks.

As an update on the two Backus infants, I have found in a survey of surviving legible gravestones (, the one for their mother...which was transcribed as reading something like "Mary Ann / wife of Orrin Backus / died Nov 19, 1870 / aged 42 years 7 months".

She, and both infants, were all listed in the interment records as being buried in Lot 8 of Section W...but the plot map of that lot shows no sign of them...and the gravestone for her was found in a completely different location, Section M, in that survey.

Unfortunately, finding her gravestone to photograph (and to check the plot map for other family) either by looking throuhg the plot maps or going out into the field would be very tedious because M is a big section. (Plot maps are available here: if you want to look through Section M for it.)

But, hopefully, this information will help you decide how relevant these people are to you.

Re: Photo requests for Backus's at Mt Hope
I've been investigating these three people but am not optimistic about being able to find gravestones for any of them. However, I thought it might be useful to you to have more information about them from the Mt Hope Interment Records.

The two memorials labeled just with the last name "Backus" (1859 and 1860) were both created from entries in the Mt Hope interment records ( that read "Orrin [or Oren] Backus' child". One died at 4 days old and the other was stillborn.

Edward Backus (1890) died of pneumonia at the age of 56 (
