After much study, collaboration and discussion with generous Steuben County historians, it has become apparent that Rev. War Veteran, Isaac Haradon is buried in Painted Post, Steuben, NY and that his actual gravesite location has not been verified. Isaac is one of my 4th great grandfathers. His gravesite is likely to be at one of four possible places in Painted Post (Hornby). The farm on which he died or if extant at the time, one of three neighborhood cemeteries: West Hill, Rhoda, or Goodsell. The Rogers Road farm location was actually that of his son Parnach Haradon. Isaac and Anna lived on that farm in a separate and very nearby ("..a few feet") house as indicated by a Haradon family letter. The farm was later known as the William Henry Green place. The location can be found on the Hornby Forks map (just southwest of page center). His daughter, Sylvia Dawes Jewett and her husband Thomas are buried at West Hill. A family letter indicates in 1824, that Sylvia and Thomas lived about 1.5 miles away. The Jewett homestead can also be found on the Hornby Forks map.
Currently there is no record of Isaac's 1824 death at Painted Post, Steuben County. He and Parnach are mentioned in the Hornby Section of Roberts, Millard Fillmore, Historical Gazetteer of Steuben County, New York, 1891. The earliest references to any Isaac Haradon at fultonhistory.com are some 40 years after his death.
