I enjoy walking around Vermont cemeteries and specifically locating Civil War Veterans to contribute to Vermont In The Civil War website http://vermontcivilwar.org/index.php But when I am in a cemetery I find any excuse to linger and take a few extra photos, hoping that a link to family will be made. If you discover a relative amongst the memorials I have located, feel free to contact me about transfer. I am glad to hear from anyone that can add to information or clarify dates and relations.. Happy Trails!|

Hello Sabina, just to let you know that I will be filling your request. If interest to you, I'm adding a group photo of those buried by him. By calculated date of birth, it appears that his wife was 30 years younger. There is another George N. Hill (1888-1918), a son? Thanks, Loretta

If I can get up there when the sun is at a better angle I will get a better picture. I'm not real happy with the one I put up. Thank you none the less.
Thank you SO much for the transfers!! I will get them all found and linked together. - Stacey

I am related but it's a LONG way down the line. If you would like to transfer them that would be very cool! I am trying to link the families together!
Thanks so much, Stacey (#47486713)

Hi, I see that you took a photo of Orange Smalley's grave #96682996, back in 2012. I was hoping maybe you could get a photo of his mother's grave. She is buried about 7 rows in front of the area where Orange is buried. It's a broken tablet stone. I guess the only thing left is "Sophia wife of Dr." on the stone. Do you live near this cemetery? Thank you SO much - Stacey

|Joan Harvey||RE: Joseph Shorey & Mary King|
Thanks for your reply. I also fell and skinned my knees there! I think my next step will be to look for church burial records. This gravestone also appears in a book about Irish immigrants in VT. I know Joseph Shorey (Charest) was definitely French Canadian, but his wife, Mary King, also from P.Q. may have been Irish.
I appreciate the photograph since it confirms dates.
|Joan Harvey||Joseph Shorey & Mary King|
Last week, we walked everywhere in St. Augustine Cemetery, in Montpelier, VT, climbing twice from top to bottom, but could not find this gravestone (my husband's great grandparents). Joseph Shorey is a Civil War veteran, so should have a flag for Memorial Day. BTW, his youngest brother, Alphonse Shorey, has a large monument there under the name Charest, the original French Canadian surname.
Are there any directions you could give to find the Joseph Shorey gravestone? Or are there any cemetery records that give the precise location of the grave?
Thanks for any suggestions. Joan

Thank you for sending information on Josiah Willard's military service. I've added it to his memorial.
