The Tombstone of Hubbard S. Burdick (1816-1890)

click to enlarge

While photographing Sedgwick tombstones at Greenwood Cemetery several years ago, I happened to come upon this one and recognized two of my ancestral names, Hubbard and Burdick. My seventh great-grandmother was Deborah Hubbard Burdick, a daughter of Robert Burdick and Ruth Hubbard. So I snapped these photos showing the front and back of this large stone which marks the burial site of Hubbard S. Burdick, his wife, and four Burdick children who died young.

Although not in my direct line, Hubbard S. Burdick is said to be also a descendant of my eighth great-grandparents.

Greenwood Cemetery is located in Bloomingdale, DuPage County, Illinois (T40N, R10E, S14, SW quarter of NW quarter). According to the Illinois State Genealogical Society's Cemetery Location list for Dupage County, it's also known as Bloomingdale, German, St. Paul Evergreen Memorial, Evergreen, St. Paul's, or English Cemetery. Nothing confusing about that, huh?

I would live to post that this information turned us into cousins, but that isn't the case. However, Robert Burdick was my husband's eighth great grandfather: Robert, Samuel, Thomas, Zaccheus, Wilbur, Asa, George Washington, Susie Melissa Burdick who married a fellow named Fenton, and they were Bill's great-grandparents. There are so many Burdick descendants, that it is pretty easy to find a cousin through them.

So... we're cousins-in-law? Good enough! LOL!
