You have a great website! I stumbled onto the site by doing a Google search for Daniel Byington in Wolcott, CT.

Daniel (III) and Susannah Norton Byington are my 4g grandparents. I descend from them through their son Hiram Norton Byington (1800-1888) who married Sarah Holkins of Colebrook, NH.

Hiram and Sarah moved to Ashtabula County, OH, in the late 1820s and later moved in the late 1830s to Scott and Hancock counties, IL. In 1846 they left Illinois, settled temporarily in Iowa, and then trekked 1,000 miles overland to Utah in 1848.

Their son Joseph Henry Byington (1829-1909) married a second wife Hannah Molland, and I descend through their daughter Hannah Maria Byington (1866-1931) who married William Burrup in 1883.

William and Maria were early settlers of the ranching and farming area located near Downey, Idaho, in the 1870s (Downey is located about 35 miles south of Pocatello). William and Maria are buried in the Grant Cemetery, located about 7 miles southeast of Downey and just up the road from their homestead.

William and Maria's oldest child, William Edward "Ed" Burrup (1885-1963), married Elizabeth "Bessie" Fox (1885-1982)in 1907; they are my grandparents.

Does anyone know the precise--or approximate--locations of the ancestral Byington graves in Wolcott, Connecticut, and Rowley, Massachusetts?

Thanks for the feedback regarding the website. Great information about your Byington lineage - I make sure it's aligned with my data. I searched several cemeteries in the Rowley and surrounding areas looking but found it difficult due to the deterioration of headstones. I suspect the first Boyntons are buried in the Early Settlers cemetery in Rowley - that would locate them with their minister, Ezekiel Rogers. I plan to travel to the Wolcott area this summer as well as Camden, NY where Daniel III and wife Elizabeth lived. jeffB
