Yes, When I went in October I was able to find my father's grave wtih the help of some local walkers. There are markers there for my grandparents too, but though they are both deceased, there are no dates on the markers, and I think they are actually buried in the cemetery up the hill (I have forgotten the name now, Evergreen?) Anyway, I walke through there for a very long time, as long as I could, but never did find Frances or Elijah Newton. If you happen across them in your wanderings, I would be most appreciative to find them. I do get up that way every year or so.

thank you so much for your help finding my father's grave. I was very saddened to see that there was no evidence that anyone had been there in a long time, and it looked like they had actually paved over it...it's only inched from the road through there.....very sad. But the kind ladies who helped me find it, walk through there regularly and promised me they would put flowers on it from time to time.

IN the meantime, my mother-in-law died this winter and she wanted to be cremated and have her ashes put with her husband. But the cemetery here wants nearly a thousand dollars for that privelege, not including a marker, and so she resides in our living room until that time. But it has made me see how important that little piece of rock is to me......
