Farm is at the junction of the Westford Hill Willington Road and an old road leading to the Samuel Walker farm. Near the road is a small cemetery, not easily seen, with several graves in it. The only reference I have found with names states the following:

Resting Place
of
Orin Hughes
and
Family

The Barbour Collection of Ashford Vital Records gives the birth of Orrene Hughes d. Jonathan and Eunice on 14 Nov 1778. This was probably a mistake in the gender and instead of a daughter was a son, Orrin who married Mehitable and had the following children:

  • Elial, b. Jul 1804; d. Aug 1804.

  • Lyman, b. 16 Oct 1806.

  • Jonathan, b. 22 Jan 1812.

  • Sally, b. 10 Aug 1814.

A Jonathan Hughes married Sylvania A. Squier, both of Ashford, 2 Jul 1837.
