For this week’s “At the Cemetery” prompt, I’m going to take a look at Tedrow Cemetery in Dover Township, Fulton County, Ohio. A lot of Belknap’s are buried there, including Thomas Belknap, our ancestor that originally left New England and came to Ohio to continue our branch of the Belknap tree.
Tedrow Cemetery is located on the north side of County Road J, just east of the village of Tedrow. The cemetery has also been known as Spring Hill Cemetery and Eldredge Cemetery.
Family members buried here include:
Thomas Belknap (1803-1889)
Polly Ann Farr Belknap (1837-1887), Thomas’ 3rd wife
Zera Belknap (1853-1920), Thomas and Polly’s oldest son
Mary Jane Kessler Belknap (1854-1928), Zera’s wife
Frederick Belknap (1889-1920) – Zera and Mary’s son
Newburgh Cemetery is an old cemetery located on Ann Arbor Trail in Livonia, Michigan. Many members of my Everitt ancestors (and one Bolt that I know of) are buried in this cemetery. Apparently, Everitts were early settlers in the area. The cemetery dates from 1827, when Salmon Kingsley, a Revolutionary War veteran, was buried here.

Above: Elizabeth VanGordon Everitt (1786-1872), wife of Uncle George. Her sister Catherine married George’s brother Marshall. They are buried in another Livonia Cemetery that I’ll talk about next time.
Above: Isaiah Bolt (1799-1856), my 4x Great-Grandfather. His son, William Dillon Bolt, married the above-mentioned George Baxter Everitt’s daughter, Mary Jane Everitt in 1860.
