Death date
I have used that date of 7 May 1893 as correct. My source for that was Family Data Collection previously called Gene Pool Individual Records.
The source on that database is
"Source Information: Edmund-The Family Data Collection - Individual Records database was created while gathering genealogical data for use in the study of human genetics and disease."

Abraham Hoyt
We who maintain the cemetery believe he is buried there & was the owner of the plots. My source are: 1. Hoyt book by David W. Hoyt, page 581
2. Obit of daughter Sarah Jennie Sperring Lewis in 1946.
3. Marriage Records of Clearfield County, page 72
4. Census 1850,1860,1870, 1880,
5. Letter from Milton Lawhead, in the Civil War, mentioning Abram sent him a letter.
6. Family Data Collection-previously called Gene Pool Individual Records
7. In depth cemetery survey by 4 Lawhead cousins.
8. Pumpkins Roots,Jill McLeister(sp)credits Hoyt info from Robin Bush - She a researcher from Taunton, England commissioned and paid by Rurton W. Spear. Hoyt's Issue published this data in the Spring 1996 and Spring 19..issues.
9. Decendent of Seth Hoyt - Revolutionary War Pension Records W2940 Continental (Mass) Hoyt, Seth & Catharine
10. The obit of Catharine written by her son Gould is very interesting.

So no actual death date but we still could find proof. I have not done Hoyt research for a number of years and every day there is more & more info out there.

RE: Orris Hoyt and Jane Shirey
They are buried at Centre Cem at Hyde, Clearfield County, PA. I keep a master list of burials, with direct contact to the cemetery board. There is a facebook page for the cem where I will get a message. Laura Hoyt dau of Orris was my gr-grandmother.

Forest Hills Cemetery Photo
You are welcome. I added the cemetery photo to the Cemetery Profile and I think it automatically appears on the memorials. I think there are a lot of burials at Forest Hills that were moved from cemeteries that we demolished. I can't remember which cemeteries though.
