  •             On August 27, 2013, word was received from the Caton Town Clerk reporting she was unable to locate any record of Ephraim being buried in Gregory - Wilkins Cemetery. She further stated, it may be his burial was simply not recorded or equally possible he was laid to rest elsewhere. Until it can be documented where Ephraim was laid, a tombstone cannot be ordered. So, if anyone can document the resting place of Ephraim, please provide me with the documentation. I am maintaining Gregory - Wilkins Cemetery as his resting place (citing his obituary) until such time another location is proved to be the site of his interment.
