I got the pictures in this post from Diane Goodwin, who had recently been to the Palmer St. Cemetery in Somerset (assuming Massachusetts). She sent the pictures in this post, as well as the following email. Thanks, Diane! She writes:
I came across this monument in the historic Palmer St Cemetery in Somerset today. The names match Izannah and Jane, and I think Jane purchased the plot from the info on the cemetery plans. Their house at 373 Main St was owned by the Hintz family on the 1871 map. Do the dates match your info on the dollmakers?
There are 4 sides to the monument. Inscribed on the sides:Sarah Hellon
born Feb 23, 1757,

died May 30, 1825
died Aug 3, 1824,
aged 43Jane Hintz Walker
born Sept 9, 1814
died Oct 6 1899
----------------------------Dixie's note here - I'm not sure where I got this information from, but I believe that Izannah is not buried in this family plot, but in another town with a marker that says Izannah F. Walker. I need to search through all the articles I've collected, but will have to do that another time. If any of YOU know more about this, please comment.
