Yesterday, I began the research on the Benjamin Burrows cemetery gravestones that are in the middle section and the back. Some are flat granite stones with only initials. The Burrows genealogy (which is typed and online at Ancestry.com) is a newish compiled genealogy and it can be searched for keywords. As folks who are buried there are mentioned as "buried on Fort Hill" or buried in the "Benjamin Burrows cemetery", you would think it would be easy to locate all of them. It's not. But, it can be narrowed down because this is the type of cemetery where everyone buried there must be a descendant (or spouse of a descendant) of Capt. Benjamin Burrows.
Some of the woman who were buried here are buried without their maiden names but the genealogy does have them. I am using the Gallup genealogy today to try to find any babies who are not mentioned in the Burrows genealogy. I am stuck on two stones SAG and EEG. There is already a Sarah A. Gallup gravestone but maybe she had two stones. It wouldn't be unusual.
In other news, I found out today that Big Bird really is a canary. I have wondered. I looked for him at my bird feeder today but I guess he's busy with his 40th birthday party.
I pulled my copy of Family Tree Magazine's War Service Reference Guide for preparing to participate in a DAR meeting next week. I think I will work on a list of veterans in my family.
