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:
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.
