William Eaton JONES - Maryland, Otsego Co., NY
Posted by: Linda Alexander (ID *****5503) Date: September 18, 2003 at 05:46:21

I am attempting to prove that William Eaton JONES (b. 26 Dec 1784 - Guildford, New Haven Co., CT) lived and died in Maryland, Otsego Co., NY. He is reputed to have died 28 MArch 1834. His daughter, Celestia Adeline, died 26 March 1834. They supposedly both died of typhus.
It has been stated they are buried in one grave. A blue sandstone marker is said to locate the grave in the Morehouse Burial Ground. This information was taken from notes of relatives who visited the area in the 1930s.
Has anyone heard of this cemetery? Can you tell me where it might be located? The Maryland Cemetery which is near the Morehouse Estate makes the most sense to me. I have a letter off to the sexton of that cemetery.
Have not been able to locate a history of the county in my area yet. Wanted to see if William Eaton JONES was listed as an early land owner. He was in the area aroung 1818 when his first child was born.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
