Yesterday, took a short trip to Armory Hill Cemetery, Ilion, NY, to look for the grave-site of our First Cousin-1xRemoved “Bub” Hyde (my Grandma Edna Seney Ouellet and Bub's mom Lillian Seney Hyde are full-sisters). Not too hard to find Bub and his wife Marie, they are interred perhaps 80 feet from my parents Steve and Lillian Ouellet Paul. Find-A-Grave profiles have been created to honor Bub and Marie (click: "Hyde" ).
Then a strange thing happened when visiting my parents grave-site, a fact that has not been noted in my many past parental visits–strange this was not noted previously. Facing mom and dad's monument, to the left side maybe twenty feet away is the Ludden Family Plot, and in this plot along with her parents is the monument of Linda L. Ludden (died 2000). And then to the right side about another twenty feet away is the Cormia Family Plot, with grave-site of H. Thomas Cormia (died 1990), interred there with his parents and brother Jim.
