** Stella Miller 1937 letter about Harry Baldwin's death and burial. "They said they remembered their mother say he died from the effects of a wound received in his arm during Civil War. That there was a chance of prolonging his life had he allowed the arm to be amputated, but he would not allow amputation. ... the Cook family always regarded him same as a brother as Cook's took him when he was a tiny infant and Mrs. Cook nursed him with her daughter, Kate, who was next to her youngest child." He was reputedly buried on Cook's farm.

Many members of the Howsmon family are buried in Bethel Cemetery

John Britton's parents were Elijah Britton (~1758 Bucks, PA-1816 Champaign,OH) and Jane Evans (~1759 PA-1819 Champaign,OH); Elijah was the son of Nathan Britton and Ann Thomas.
