"Bible and Family Records", by William A. Brinkman, Historian, town of Guilderland, N.Y., 1943,
copy of which was found at Altamont Library, June 2000. This includes a copy of both the final document
and a copy of Brinkman's original notes used to make the document.
I also saw copies of this on microfilm from the Mormon FHC but it was not a good copy to print on the
machine I had available.

2. I did find one error that I know of - Berne: On the right side of the road from Thompson's Lake to Warner's Lake on the Aaron Warner farm. In 1874 there were sixty-five gravestones on this plot. There are now in 1939 nine white stones with inscriptions. The others have none.
Ruth, wife of Cyrel Eaton, died April 13, 1814 aged 16 years, 7 months and 24 days.
She was actually 46 years, 7 months and 24 days.
