Cemeteries/ Burghill/surrounding areas
Posted by: Bev Groscost Date: November 04, 1999 at 17:21:14
  of 1001

Hello. Could someone tell me if there is more than one cemetery in the Burg Hill (burghill)
area of Trumbull Co.? In an article I copied it refers to "the west burying ground given to the township by Deacon Elihu Bates and that the first grave was that of Mrs. Samuel Bates in 1837." In that particular article
I have found a reference to an ancestor I am
researching "John Groscost, a soldier of 1812
was buried on lot one, on the farm formally owned by him". Is anyone familiar enough with this area that could help me? This article also refers to "three cemeteries in the township,the one at the center being the oldest".I drove out there and could only find one. Any help appreciated. Thanks.
