Greetings from chilly Idaho, Believe that the listing for Greenfield John is in error. Greenfield Iden is the husband of Amy Iden and father of George Iden. They are listed in Ledyard in the 1850 & 1860 census's. Loved your site. Thanks Rhonda.

Based on photographs of the headstones for these particular individuals, I
feel the following changes need to be made -

HAINES - Charles W. 55 years, 5 mos old when he died

Emily L. wife of J. H. Peckham died 10-28-1885 aged 27 years was a Haines and
is buried in the Haines plot not with the Peckhams. She was the daughter of
Charles W. Haines and Esther Searing Haines who are buried in this same
cemetery.

PECKHAM - Susan Allen died May 9, 1854. She was the wife of John Peckham

PECKHAM - Martha was the wife of Thomas Peckham

PECKHAM - Sally Mosher was the wife of Daniel Peckham

PECKHAM - Job Mosher was the son of Sally Mosher Peckham and Daniel Peckham

PROND should be spelled PROUD

Sincerly

When they were very young, Earl William Mosher (b. 1898 d. 1966) took his daughters to visit his ancestor's family plot. The cemetery is no longer maintained, although a granite marker behind an old tree identifies the front property as the site of a "Friends Meeting House 1810 - 1912." Mosher family graves that were found in this cemetery in August 1998 are as follows:

Clarence Mosher: son of S. W. & O. Mosher
Born: Nov. 4, 1871
Died: Sept.. 17, 1886

Stephen W. Mosher
Born: April 16, 1818
Died: May 8, 1886

Orinda: daughter of W. T. & C. Mosher
Born: Nov. 6, 1849
Died: Sept.. 14, 1877

William T. Mosher
Born: May 16, 1818
Died: Feb. 1, 1886

Charity Finch: wife of W. T. Mosher
Born: Nov. 9, 1820
Died: May 12, 1889

Website http://www.rootsweb.com/~nycayuga/cem/cem84.htm lists the name "Punda" instead of Orinda. It also shows her as being the daughter of "John". I did not see that reference in the cemetery. Could you verify this please. I think she was clearly the daughter of William T. Mosher, and probably (most likely) the wife of Steven W. Mosher.

William T. Mosher was Earl W. Mosher great-grandfather, and my wife's 2nd great-grandfather. William T. Mosher was also the son of Eseck Mosher (b. March 19, 1756 d. November 1826, in Springport, Cayuga County, NY).

I'm also not sure of the year of birth for Steven W. Mosher. The headstone looks like 1818 not 1848. However, because of it's age, this could be a mistake on my part.

Subject: More Photos for Quaker or Friends Cemetery #84

Bernie,
I took some pictures last fall of the Boucher stones in Quaker or Friends Cemetery #84, which are attached to this message. Perhaps you would like to add them to the cemetery listing table.
My transcriptions of the Boucher tombstones, based on the photos, follow.

"KEZIA BOUCHER BORN OCT. 4, 1801. DIED MAR. 7, 1891."

"THOMAS BOUCHER DIED. MAY 10, 1869. AE 80 YEARS."

"ELENOR L. dau. of Thomas & Kezia BOUCHER, born Jan. 8, 1838, died Nov. 9, 1843."

"HENRY S. Only Son of THOMAS & KEZIA BOUCHER, Died Jan. 20, 1856, AE. 20 yrs & 8 mo. Gone but not forgotten"

Thanks,--

I saw your website on genweb. My name is Amy Austin and I have lived on Levanna Rd for about 17 years. I live about 1 mile up the road and walked to that cemetary at least once a week. The reason I am e-mailing you is that about 6-8 years ago Kenneth Gifford was buried there. His headstone is flat and close to the fence. There are some plants there that my family and I brought down to him, this last Memorial Day. I just thought maybe you would like to update your records.
Sincerely Miss Amy Austin
