Subject: Cemetery inscriptions, Hudson, NY
Author: JRPunderson

Classification: Cemetery
Surnames: EDWARDS, JENKINS, MARION, MELLEN, PUNDERSON, TALMAN

Cemetery inscriptions from Cemetery in Hudson, Columbia County, NY
Names: JENKINS, MELLEN, PUNDERSON, TALMAN, EDWARDS

This information is from notes I took on a brief visit to the cemetery in 1980. The cemetery office was closed at the time so I have no information about the location of the graves. All these grave markers are in the same plot. I arranged the names here to show the relationship of the five generations and added some notations in square brackets.
