This is photo of the Bockee/Wheaton cemetery on NY state route 83 near Smithfield NY. This cemetery is also known as the Federal Square Burying Ground near Amenia NY. This is where according to a 1903 book by M.D. Van Alystyne (entitled Burying Grounds of Sharon Connecticut, Amenia and Northeast NY published by Walsh, Griffen & Hoystradt Amenia NY ) that Joseph Curtis father of James Curtis is buried. My 2006 inspection of the cemetery confirmed that since 1903 Joseph Curtis grave stone has been lost. The 1903 book said the stone inscription said he died in 1785 of small pox.
