I visited the Green River Cemetery in June and could not find a grave
for Amos King. Many of the grave stones are overturned placing them
face down making
it impossible to see the inscriptions.
I will send you several photos of the cemetery. I realize they are
not what you had hoped
for, but I thought that they might be of interest to you.

Perhaps this cemetery is the final resting place of my 4th great
grandfather Amos King. Cliff's list shows that there is an Amos King
buried in Book 8 page 83. I looked at the list of Cemeteries and
that this refers to the Green River Cemetery:
8:77-85 Green River Community Cemetery Jct. Rts. 71 & 22, Green
Are any of you folks on this list living in or near this town and
Cemetery? My Amos King was born 1756 in New Salem, Hampshire (now
Franklin) County, Massachusetts. He died in June 1839 at his farm
Canaan and New Lebanon and was a Revolutionary War Veteran who had a
pension. He was married to Hopestill Haskins daughter of William
and Mary Cole. They had about 10 children the oldest is my third
grandfather who died in Benton County, Oregon Territory 1856. One
first pioneers who saw both oceans in his lifetime.
