    • Obituary states that interment was made "in the old West Union cemetery." This is almost certainly the lower portion of Blockhouse Hill Cemetery that was once the Seventh Day Baptist cemetery, rather than the former IOOF section of the upper Blockhouse Hill Cemetery. His wife's 1923 death record stated her burial location only as West Union. Based on her husband's obituary, it is presumed that she too was buried in the old SDB section.
