I AM LEAVING NEXT WEEK TO GO TO CONNECTICUT AND PLAN TO MAKE A STOP AT THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY TO LOOK FOR MORE INFO. THE FIRST REFORMED CHURCH SOLD OFF PART OF ITS CEMETERY TO BUILD A COURT HOUST AND THE FAMILIES OF THOSED BURRIED THER WERE ASKED IF THEY WANTED THE GRAVE MARKER TO BE A PART OF THE CHURCH FOUNDATION AND TO DESIGNATE WHERE THEY WANTED THE BODIES MOVED TO...NO RECORD OF REMOVAL OR MARKER FOR CASPER OR MARY IS LISTED. THEY MAY STILL BE BURIED UNDER THE COURT HOUSE. HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET TO THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY INLANCASTER TO DATE.
