I am researching the tombstone names in what appears to be a family plot at the North Street Cemetery in Auburn, New York. It includes my g. g. g. grandfather Gershom Powers d. 1831, wife Chloe d. 1818; Jesse Thompson, d. 1834 and wife Elizabeth, d. 1835; and a Hatch family whose tombstones I can't read but looks like wife and 2 children. Can anyone tell me the relationships among the Powers, Thompsons and Hatches?

There is a much earlier query in this forum that refers to Eliza Hatch as Gershom Powers' wife. That query is copied below.

Gershom Powers is also my g.g.g.grandfather (Hi cuz!) and I have his wife as Chloe St. John, d.Feb. 10, 1818 (2 weeks after the birth of her son, St. John Powers), buried Auburn, NY. My source is the Amos H. Powers book, Powers Family, 1884. I believe the information was contributed by Gershom's son, William Gershom Powers, since he personally knew Amos.

So we can infer that Eliza Hatch, if she was indeed married to Gershom Powers, must have been married to him after the death of Chloe St. John and before Gershom's death in 1831.
I don't have any idea who the Thompsons are.
