I just read in passing about Heckman Field, an early, apparently informal cemetery near Avilla that was used by Catholics before the Catholic cemetery was "built" in Avilla.
I've looked for a long time for the burial place of Mrs. Wessel, wife of Frederick Wessel, who passed before 1860. I wonder if she could be buried in Heckman Field.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this place, and if there are any records of burials there? Any info appreciated.
