George Edward Flint and Julia Etta Abbott were my second great grandparents. Their ancestors had lived in the Windsor County, Vermont area for several generations. Most of their descendants stayed in the same area. One exception was their son and my great grandfather, . He first moved to Springfield, MA, then Rochester, NY and finally California.
Last week, we were passing through the South Royalton, VT area and took the opportunity to visit local cemeteries. I knew George was buried in Riverview Cemetery. I figured that was the good starting point.
George shared a lot with his wife Julia and her parents, and Ervilla Hackett. I have included the photo for George and Julia’s headstone. Unfortunately, it is a little hard to read. I find that this style of headstones can be a challenge to photograph. If you click on the link, you can see a larger view.
