I am an archaeologist by trade but genealogy, history and cemeteries are my passions. I live in rural Clark County Washington and travel throughout Oregon and Washington, and would love to take any photos for other researchers and family members.|
Everyone may use my photos and documents however you wish. I take & post these photos for families to enjoy and to help with ancestry research, so please do make use of them!

|Woofgeed||RE: Captain Samuel Pratt|
The info you got from Wash County Historical is avail online too....
There is a drop down list, choose Henderson from the list, and at bottom you'll see the same info the historian gave you. We believe that this is simply stating that there is a few stones in this Henderson Cemetery on Brayton Road and that it is "nearby" within a couple miles I would think, is this one PRATT Stone up on a hill....if you pass along your email address to me, I can give you more info as I gather it, rather than do this through Find a Grave....
Here is a paste of the info from the website...
The grave of a Revolutionary soldier is found in the field owned by Lyman Wright near the Brayton Street schoolhouse.
PRATT Samuel Capt d Jan 18 1815 age 82 yrs
Mrs. PRATTís marker fell and broke and is entirely gone

|Woofgeed||RE: Captain Samuel Pratt|
Here is the "small" Letter written by a Durkee who worked on the farm as a young teenager in about 1950.
Don't know if this helps you directly, but it is some "color" and might be helpful. I personally think that this Samuel, and the one you speak of, were perhaps one in the same...but I have yet to prove that.
Anyhow, here you go....
Recollection Letter of the Gravestone of Samuel S. Pratt
Transcription of Letter by:
J. Scott Langworthy
TRANSCRIPTION NOTE: Transcribed as written.
Warren Rd. Pratt Hill
French and Indian War or
There is a Gravestone on Top of this Hill.
On the Gravestone: The Name Samuel S. Pratt.
I canít remember the Dates on the Stone.
The saying that is on the Stone is:
Behold as you pass by,
For as I am now,
You will soon be,
So prepare to Die and follow me!
Note: When I was 16 years old I had to memorize the saying on the Grave Site, before I could get a job working for the Farmer. The Farmerís Name was: Frank Wright.
I was always told there was a Battle on this Hill. Mr. Pratt and his Horse were killed on this Hill, and buried in the Grave. I thought this would be a good History Subject for the Children.
Ralph Durkee, Jr.
75 Years Old
Ralph wrote this Letter in 2011.
Ralph Durkee, Jr. (b. 29-Aug-1936 d. 9-Jan-2014). Ralph was born in Hartford, Washington County, New York. He was the son of Ralph Durkee and Alice Wooddell.

|Woofgeed||Samuel Pratt (Hartford NY)|
Morgan, there are two Samuel Pratt's on Find A grave from Washington County NY in Hartford...
This one, which I know the stone exists but I think it is only one stone on the top of a hill on Wright Road near Hartford...
I have a friend who gave me a written piece of paper talking about this stone from back in the day. I will add this info as soon as I transcribe it.
The other Samuel, the one you say is your 6th gr grandfather, is in a cemetery called Henderson Cemetery, with other family and other graves.
I'm not related but wondered if you were aware, of this other Samuel, and how you tell the difference between the two, as they are practically the same, in age death and name...????

Yes I added them but they didn't have the same last name Northrup and Johnson
|AnisahD||Re: Fountain Cemetery, SD|
Morgan, I see you are managing a few of the grave memorials of Fountain. I wanted to let you know of an opportunity taking place this spring.
I have volunteered to "manage" the Fountain Cemetery project efforts and in so doing am working to take the near abandoned cemetery & clean it up, as well as expand the online information relating to those buried in the cemetery.
This spring I will be working on the physical beautification of the cemetery and hopefully building of a directory and a new sign at the entrance of the cemetery (with help from a metalsmith in the area).
I am touching base with those who may have relatives there, so that they have the opportunity to (1) come out this spring & care for graves (2) send memorial wreaths or other flowers for graves or in other ways consider donating to the project.
Feel free to contact me if you have an interest or question. This project has been initiated by our local Brookings Area Genealogical Society and is only one of numerous cemeteries being "adopted" by volunteers.

Thank you so very much for the information about Raymond's date and place of death! Wherever did you find it? Now if I could just find where he is buried!
Thanks, again, for your help.

|Marsha Moon||RE: Brammer Line|
Thanks so much and I look forward to receiving the documentation. Send them to: email@example.com
|Marsha Moon||RE: Frances Alse Brammer|
Where may I find the research on the Brammer line? Elizabeth is the only child of David & Frances Alse Brammer Ragsdale to have a legal death record showing them as her parents. I found David's 2nd marriage and his probated will. I am certain not all of the sons had been listed, but land sales proved Jacob. I just don't know about a David who lived across the state line in TN. I hadn't any knowledge her parentage, when/where she died, etc.. I just felt certain that where ever I found them, I would find the Moon's also. Thank you so much for finding me. I look forward to your response. Sincerely, Marsha Moon
|L Nystrom||RE: Canby Cemetery - Abbott|
You are welcome. No James name was not on this stone. I looked around the stone, but there were no other stones nearby with that last name. I walked a little over half of the cemetery. I started on the other side. I will try to get back there soon to finish this cemetery. Maybe he is in the part that I have not done yet.
|James Greenfield||RE: Thank You Again!|
You are welcome
