I am trying to determine what cemetery Parmenus Simpson and his wife Elvira Throop Simpson
who lived in Bennington were buried in. I am fairly certain they died in Wyoming County.
Parmenus and Elvira are listed in the census up and through 1870 so I believe they
probably died between 1870 and 1880.
In the 1870 census two of their grown children are shown living with them Parmenus W. aged
43 and Diadima aged 45. In the 1880 census Diadima is listed as the head of household and
Parmenus W. is listed as her brother. I believe they probably both died in Wyoming County
I don't know which religion they were affiliated with for sure but believe
Elvira's father was a Baptist. Many of the Simpson family were Congragationists when
they lived in Massachusetts. Parmenus younger brother was a Methodist Episcopalian.
I would appreciate any and all ideas.
