(This John Mead appears to be the same as listed above but with different info? There is no existing gravestone for John Mead in the Stevens Point Cemetery. There are Mead‘s in the Brandt Cemetery but no John .There is no doubt that the John Mead listed here is the one enumerated in Harmony in 1900: John Mead, Farmer, b NJ, Apr 1829, age 72.

Whether he died in 1900 or 1901 and where buried is the question. No stone in Brandt or Stevens Point Cemeteries)

    I would like to note that the above listed Smith, Agnes is actually ANGUS SMITH, a pioneer of Susquehanna county, from Starrucca, and the first man to operate a wood acid factory in the United States.

    I noticed that listed in the Harmony deaths, my great great grandfather Daniel C. Myrick is buried in the
    Brandt cemetery, however, it does not indicate if he has a head stone. Is there a way to find out?
