      Visited Elizabeth's grave June 4, 2000, along with David, Marvin and Margy. To find it, turn left inside the north entrance, and go all the way to the north end. Her grave is a little to the left of straight ahead, and downhill a little. There is a small walled section just before you reach it, and there are very few stones nearby. The stone is starting to lean forward and may fall if no one props it up. We left silk roses, it looked like no one had visited for a long time.
      Tried to visit the Rector cemetery to find William's grave, but the hill is overgrown with brush and the man who lives at the bottom of the hill said the ground had slid some years back and the path up was hidden.
      Visited the Rector Cemetery in Nov 2009. William's grave, if it is there, is unmarked or so overgrown that it cannot be found. This was Marvin's 2nd visit and he said the stones were in much worse shape.

      Samantha's marriage record shows parents as William & Martha.
