William, Antoinette, Margaretha (grandma), John Alfred, Herman, Anna Elizabeth, Joseph and Rebecca are buried in Morehouse in the Hart cemetery.

The Hart house was the big house with the star in the peak--has been razed.

Walter and his wife are buried in the Ohio cemetery.  Ulric, wife and son (Henry) are buried in Albany.  Charles and his wife once lived in the house where Chas.and Jan Reynolds now live.  I don't know where they are buried--probably Utica area.  Anna Sophia and her husband are probably buried in the Trenton or Utica area.
