Yes, the Zimmerman stones are cast from some type of cement or concrete. Jacob Zimmerman's stone seems to have been carelessly made - neither his forename nor surname is centered on the stone. All the others are.

I put Leon Zimmerman's 1912 Spencerport High School senior year picture on the website, and noticed you had created his page. Lucky guy, Leon - his class consisted of 2 guys and 10 girls. I did check your other memorial pages and added a couple pictures of gravestones.

Hi Tom.

No idea what happened to the stones of Elizabeth (Harvey) Scott. Probably dumped in a pile somewhere (although I can't find where) or thrown out in a clean-up effort. So, there's no way to take a better look at the "7" "4" problem.

I think I will leave it there as it is the most readable of all photo. I used shaving cream in 2002 to get the photo. The New England Historical Genealogy Society recommend it. I have not seen the "rule" posted in any cemetery, but do know if not washed off will well, it could be a problem. We took a lot of water with us.

Sponsorship of Memorials
Hello Tom,

Happy Holidays! It's been some time since we corresponded, but I hope you're well.

Thank you so much for sponsoring the Hosford-Ransom-Dewey memorials. As you've seen, Fay and I found and photographed Sibil Ransom's original gravestone (in the woods on the old family farm in Poultney). I suspect that David is there, too, and his parents; and that the monument in the East Poultney Cemetery is merely a cenotaph. But conditions were pretty miserable in the woods (hip high grass just getting there, and then lots of vegetation and mosquitoes) and we didn't have the stamina to check the whole area. Plus a tick bit me and burrowed into my neck, so we got out of Dodge as quickly as we could. It was a tough job, but every time I look at Sibil's stone, I am thrilled and know that it was well worth the trouble.

All the best.

Janet

I changed the order, but can not delete any photo that I did not post. Thanks and are you related?

Hi,

I guess we are all totally at a loss. I was going by what is on the gravestone as this is the only date that has been found at this time. I will keep searching, you never know what you can find in other sources.

Thanks for the heads up,
Mary Jane

Hi Cousin, Am sorry I do not have a copy of the Richarson Memorial on my computer. You may be able to search for one. I have a hard copy. My aunt accidentally found a copy in the St. Petersburg, FL library thirty years ago and somehow sourced out a reprint copy for me. It is 900 plus pages long. I will probably never get all the information entered in my Ancestry tree.
