I was up at the Kendrew Corner's cemetery on October 17, 1998. The cemetery was in decent shape, some over growing of certain areas but in all, well kept.

I found Kendrew stones in two rows. Many of the stones are leaning and some have sunken partially into the earth.

In the first row (uphill) are:
1) Thomas Kendrew - Dec 29, 1892
2) Thomas, son of Thomas & Ann Kendrew. Died Sept 11, 1870 {possibly 19} years & 5 months
3) Mary C Kendrew, wife of Thomas Kendrew. Died May 5, 1885. Aged 76 years.
4) Thomas Kendrew {sunken in, couldn't read dates}
5) Elizabeth Kendrew, wife of Thomas Kendrew. Died October 6, 1815, aged 65 years. {Note: Yes, the stone says 1815. I went back and traced out the number, if it is 1845 then the angle on the 4 is very, very light and worn away.

Note also that in this row, there are two very small stones on either side of stone 1. No legible markings on either of these.

In the second row, adjacent but downhill of row one:
1) Charles A Kendrew. Died Nov 14, 1898 in his 52 year. Eliza A, his wife. April 1, 1883 in her 36 year.
2) Eliza {no other info)
3) small unreadable stone
4) small unreadable stone
5) Eliza A, wife of Charles A Kendrew. Died April 1, 1883 in her 36th year.

Yes, in this row there are at least two stones that appear to be for Eliza, wife of Charles A.

There may have been other Kendrews in the graveyard that I did not find.

Also at the corners, is the old church (in good shape), an old grange building (appears to be used as a home) and an old school (in poor shape). I have some video that I told of the area if anyone is interested.

FYI - I am descended from Smith Kendrew.
