I am the historian and Vice President of the Hatch Cemetery Association, Guys Mills, Crawford Co., PA. Amongst our burials is Joseph Faunce who died February 28, 1843 at the age of 80 years.
My research tells me that he is the son of Peleg and Mary Faunce, He married Mercy Bartlett, and is the father of several children, including Eleazer, Joseph, Peabody, William, James and George and daughters Mercy, Mahala, Susan, Mary, Lucy and Saphrona. However there are so many discrepancies as to his year of death and also where he is buried.
I am 100% certain this is the Joseph Faunce who is the father of the above named children. His daughter Mary married Philander Sikes and she and her husband are buried in the same family plot with Joseph in Hatch Cemetery. Lucy married Alexander Sikes and their child Lucy M is buried next to Joseph in Hatch Cemetery. Please refer to the photos attached.
Also refer to Find-a-Grave memorial page #116722368. I have submitted several edits to add him as the father of some of the children I have found and only one has accepted the edit.
How do I get this information in the record books so that this man will have his final resting place verified and his family links completed?
