Joshua Thomas, died 9 April 1833, Bolton, NY

I came across a poignant epitaph today from the Bolton Rural Cemetery, Bolton Landing, Warren County, New York.

Joshua Thomas of Bolton, NY predeceased his wife, Molly (Streeter) Thomas by over 20 years. She was the one who handled his funeral arrangements, including his gravestone.

His gravestone reads:

Joshua Thomas
(husband of Molly Streeter)
died April 9
th 1833
AE 67 years 3 mos. & 27 days

“I loved him.”

  1. someday when your mother and I are both gone, with side-by-side headstones, she will want her’s to say “Can’t any of you talk to your father? He’s right there ya know!”Of course on the back of her stone it may have an arrow pointing to mine and the saying “I’m with Stupid” – now THAT would be funny.

  2. Who were Joshua and Molly Thomas’ children? Was Truman N. Thomas (1829 – 1901) one of them?
