Hi Rod,
I live in Greenwich, NY. Right next to Easton, NY. I restored a cemetery with my Girl Scouts and in doing that one I was asked by an older lady if I could help her restore a cemetery in her neighborhood. I agreed and it is called the Bigelow Family Cemetery.
In this cemetery I have found. Erastus Bigelow and his wife Lucy. children: Erastus, Sophya and Polly. Also I think the name is Hanah Durham. Hard to read the stone.I am just at the beginning stages of work but thought you might like to know about this cemetery. I have had guys helping me with chainsaws to get through all the grapevine. First time I went to check it out I was crawling on my belly because the overgrowth of the vines were so thick. Well, I can now stand up and search for head and footstones.
If you are interested in more information on this cemetery let me know.

Sophia, dau of Erastus & Lucy Bigelow                                    Polly, dau of Erastus & Lucy Bigelow
