I hope you found your answer about where William Girton is buried. If you have not, may I direct you to the "Tired Warrior"'s web site concerning Columbia Co. cemeteries. He recently updated the information on the Dutch Hill cemetery. He states that the land was donated by William and Thomas Girton. Many Girtons are buried there. The list on line does not include William or Thomas. However, the info says that the donation was in 1812 and the first burial on the list was 1831. It also says the oldest stones are worn smooth. I suspect our oldest relatives can be found right there in Dutch Hill. Maybe there is some special way to bring out writing on old stones. I am across the country, in Washington State, so can't drop over and check it out myself, but if you find anything there I sure would like to know.
Joan
