Body of Message:

Congdon, Alvah, son of Christopher Congdon, RI, NY, PA, and WI, and brother to Minor Congdon, NY, and PA. Alvah moved to Eau Claire, WI, and following is his death information with family members. (The index you were searching at the Eau Claire library was indexed at the cemetery from 1989 - 1991. We currently are processing a more recent indexing done in 2004, and there is an additional name on the pilar, which for some reason does not appear the earlier version.) The first marker follows:

(a 4 sided pilar, E face:) FRED CONGDON / BORN / DEC. 23, 1860 / DIED / NOV. 4, 1923 / ANN ELIZA / WIFE OF / A. CONGDON / BORN / IN CAMILLUS, N.Y./ DEC. 20, 1822 / DIED / FEB. 11, 1880 / CONGDON/ (N face:) ALVAH CONGDON / BORN / IN HOMER, NY / JUNE 2, 1811 / DIED / SEPT. 6, 1889 / C. CONGDON / BORN / OCT. 30, 1780 / DIED / MAY 1, 1873 / (S face:) HENRY JUDSON / BORN / JUNE 16, 1856 / DIED / AUG. 6, 1858 /

The second marker, a footstone: JUDSON / SON OF / A. & A. E. / CONGDON/ DIED / AUG. 6, 1858 / AGE / 2 YRS 2 MS /
