I have enjoyed reading the Old Marsh Cemetery records as I have been there some years back.  There was another stone that was very hard to read at the time I was there located next to Alley Tenbrook  Sep. 16, 1833.  From history records the following child is also buried in this same cemetery.

Found this in History of Lenawee County:
And also this from the History of Chemung, Schuyler, Tompkins, and Tioga Counties
and also included in our family records.

"9.  Lydia, Ten Brook born in 1812, and died in 1814, and was one of the few if not the first, buried near the meeting-house which was then being built, but never finished, near the residence of Mr. Joseph Hoystings. "

Lydia was the ninth born of twelve children of John Ten Brook III and Allie Lowe Ten Brook.  Their oldest daughter Anna Ten Brook was married to John Mead, my Great-Great Grandfather.

Sincerly,Doris M. Booth
