We found a single gravestone in the woods, where we go camping every year, in the town of Jefferson, Schoharie County, NY. We thought maybe one of his descendants might be looking for him. His name is

Abram Hitchcock Foote
died March 9, 1857
aged 54 years, 1 month, 26 days

On the stone is inscribed:

"Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth:
Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours;
and their works do follow them."

I did find him in a genealogy already posted on Rootsweb.

I have attached a couple of photos in the hope that you may post them on your site. The grave is located in the woods on the west side of Betty Brook Road. If anyone inquires as to his exact whereabouts, we would be happy to show them where he is.
