George C. Howard is my husband's 1st cousin twice removed. I would like to know in what cemetery he is buried. Does anyone know?

Maryrose, My best guess would be he is buried in the East Thorp Village cemetery which Allan J. Boardman is now in the process of transcribing. We are planning to take photos there this fall. If you are patient........perhaps we can be of some help. I also see there is a county death record for him which will likely tell you where he is buried. You could write to get it.
