Looking for Ephraim Hammet. There's one at the Haven Hill Cemetery, but this is Ephraim II. His huge monument is the "Woman at the Well" (Woman of Samaria). I'm hoping someone has some information on this as I have taken my mother to every cemetery in Rochester that I can find, but no monument!

Hi,
Thank you so much for reading my post and replying.
There is a story that goes along with this monument which goes something like; Ephraim told his wife that he wanted a large monument of the Woman at the Well, but his wife apparently did not agree because it would cost too much money (something like that). Ephraim passed away and ended up getting the monument anyway!
My 85 year old mother saw the monument many years ago, and she has a pamphlet that tells the entire story, but the only reference to a cemetery mentioned "Old Cemetery".
Ephraim was married more than once I'm told. One of his wives was Ann W. Clark ...not sure if she was his last wife or not, but I suspect she was. Ann is the only one I have listed.
Thank you again,
Jeff
