Stiles Cemetery View

"I just completed a genealogy sweep up through Herkimer County and beyond. The previous photos of the "Stiles" cemetery were quite depressing; however, due to a lot of work by Alicia and Stu Copperwheat and others, it is now maintained in a very acceptable state. The local town furnished the fencing and Stu Copperwheat and a couple others erected same. Many of the stones are still lying flat but many are readable. The list is somewhat larger than the list already on the Herkimer Site. Among their finds was my gggg-grandfather (think I got that right) Reuben Rider, who died in 1816. His wife Prudence has already been listed on the Herkimer site. Have a great day! Al White"
