In Reply to: Re: HUSON 1812 CEMETERY - BRANT ERIE NY by Fred Gahimer of 343

Hi, Fred,
Yes, we did find the stone for Cornelius. It's the one lying flat on the ground next to Sarah Wing Huson's stone. We brushed it off and did a crude rubbing with whatever paper we had along. Then we reassembled the paper and photographed the image. It came up fairly well. That was over ten years ago. The cemetery was in rough shape then, but I've seen worse. If anyone lives around there and wants to fix it up, or knows of an old cemetery society which will maintain it, we'll make a donation to the cause.

Jane Huson married Salma Hawley, and they are buried in the Quaker Hicksite cemetery in North Collins, Erie County. Their youngest son, Salma Bartholomew Hawley, moved to Kent County, Michigan. This is Paul's Huson link. Salma B had a sister named Hannah or Hulda, who married a Southwick and moved to somewhere in Montana. She was still alive in 1918, but we don't have any other information about her or her descendants. Could she have followed your branch to the area around Crazy Woman?
