Hi Penny:

We have found an old family cemetery near us and I'm writing to you because we are very close to Port Byron (Armstrong Road in the Town of Throop).  I'd like to make sure this cemetery has been recorded.  It is on private land (the owners started to build a home there years ago but never finished and there is no one living on the property at the present time.  We found only four stones but there may be more.  The names are Joel Baker, died Dec. 23, 1851 or 1854, age 71; Louisa, wife of Joel Baker, died Feb. 1, 1851, age 63; Betsey, Daughter of Joel and Louisa Baker, died 1831 or 1832, age 11 or 14; and Joel, Son, died 1812 or 1817, age 3 or 13.  The writing is almost illegible.

Georgena & Roger Gunn
