There was a photo of the tombstone but it had deteriorated over time - on the back of the photo was written:
"One of the larger stones in blossom Cemetery; Legible on the bottom half of the stone:

"They will never be forgotten
Never shall their memory fade
Sweetest thoughts will always linger

2. Federal Census/Soundex/Index, 1870.

3. Federal Census/Soundex/Index, 1900.
"Information sent after I posted a query:

Hamlin, New York
This cemetery is located on the north side of Hamlin-Clarkson Town Line Road (Rt. 18) about ½ mile west of the Sweden Walker Rd. (Rt. 260) in the Town of Hamlin.
The tombstones in this cemetery were copied in June 1931 by Mary T. Douglas. This list corrected that list and updated it, adding over 700 more inscriptions.
The first burial in this cemetery is that Thomas Williams who died Sept. 22, 1845. There are some tombstones dated earlier but they were probably moved here from another place.
