|AAW||Denton Green = Old Town Burying Ground|
The photo you have taken of the sign on the fence around what you call "Denton Green" is the same as that on the "Old Town Burying Ground" Hempstead, a cemetery which is already created on F-G. The list of burials in "Old Town Burying Ground" was taken from a list of inscriptions recorded by Jacqueline C. Frost before the visible graves were buried to make a park. For more detail, please read about "Old Town Burying Ground" Hempstead in F-G.
Unless you have posted the wrong photo, Denton Green clearly IS Old Town Burying Ground, and so you should put your memorials for Denton Green into the already created memorial for "Old Town Burying Ground" Hempstead so as not to add to the confusion about that now defunct cemetery.
By the way, it is highly likely that the stone you claim is in "Denton Green" listing Sarah Frost, John Frost, Abb[e]y Mott, John Mott, and Martha (probably a mistake for Maria) Miller, and the Jacksons is a memorial to those once buried "Back of the Presbyterian Church" Hempstead. Perhaps their remains were first moved to Old Town Hempstead from the Church. Or perhaps their descendants wrongly thought they were buried in Old Town when in fact they were buried behind the Presbyterian Church. Please see the listing of people buried "Back of Presbyterian Church" Hempstead. The similarily of the names is too clear to be coincidental.
For more detail about both "Old Town Burying Ground" and the cemetery that used to exist behind Hempstead's Presbyterian Church please see Jacqueline C Frost, Cemetery Inscriptions from Hempstead, Long Island, NY.

|Lynn||Mary Thickitt photo|
Thank you so much for the picture of Mary Thickitt's headstone. I really appreciate your efforts. Mary was my gr gr grandmother. I see that there was another headstone connected to hers, presumably for my gr gr grandfather but I did not see any inscription. Can you tell me if that headstone was blank?

Not sure about the other two, but I found this on the web. He was sent overseas on October 26, 1943 and served as a Bombardier and gunner with the 527th Bomb Squadron, 379th Bomb Group, operating out of Kimbolton. On January 30, 1944, the crew participated in a mission to bomb an aircraft factory in Braunschweig, Germany.
On the way back to England, the bombers were attacked by German fighters who were sent up to intercept them. One source states that Unteroffizier Franz Schilling, of 7./JG26, attacked a straggling bomber which he shot down. It was his first shoot down. The plane crashed north of Bergen aan Zee.
This was Lt. Winter's B17. It crashed near the town of Schoorl, on the Dutch coast, near the Pirolavlakte. The whole crew was killed in the crash.
