Updated 12/2/2000 by researcher Linda Auer [Linda, if you see this, and are interested in corresponding with others about your personal family genealogy, please check in with a current (2014) email address.]

On the first typed page between Wright, Walter and Wright, Alice J. the name should be Wright, Jane P. The dates are correct.

Frost, Charles J. is correct.
Frost, Prudence is correct.

On the 4 VanDERHOEF's - this is the correct spelling (not VanDERHOFF). Dates were correct.

Wright, Isaac is correct.

Wright, Phebe Jane The full date is "April 12, 1867 Aged 70"

Even though the following were on your typed list, I couldn't find their headstones: Charlotte Wright, Amelia Wright, Jane Wright, Abigail Frost, Charles VanDerhoef or Edw. H. VanDerhoef. As I mentioned to you in an earlier email, this cemetery has had some real bad damage done to it and it is not maintained. My husband and I hope to get back down there in early spring before the grass starts growing. Hopefully we will be able to find the above. Abigail Frost was Margaret Frost VanDerhoef's (Margaret was my maternal great great grandmother) paternal grandmother and Abigail was born around 1765. I don't know when she died. The oldest grave in Tallman is 1833.

A little trivia and then I will close. I have the quilt top (basket quilt) that my great great grandmother Margaret Frost VanDerhoef started, but she unfortunately went blind before she was able to piece the last square. My grandmother gave it (and all of the fabric for the last square) to me so that I could finish it. I got it together, but have only quilted 3 squares. This is on my to-do list for when I retire.
