Re: Cemetery in Easthampton MA
I've been trekking up through Easthampton on my way to Northampton quite often of late and driving through the countryside always gets me to thinking about which places are old enough that our Braman ancestors might have passed them by in their daily travels and what might the countryside have looked like "back then".
I think it might be fun to get the local cousins together sometime to trade family stories...not quite a full-blown family reunion, but maybe dinner someplace sometime this year? (- Jim, if you read this,I'm hoping you will be interested too -)
I recently reconnected with my mother's aunt who recalls a family story about Amasa's youngest son Newton (her grandfather). Newton and Alice adopted their youngest child (William). Aunt Peggy remembers lawyers from THE Ford family coming to her parents house asking questions about William, who was actually, she says, Newton's biological son...hmmm?! by a member of the Henry Ford clan?! Enquiring minds want to know...;>
