I need more information on this Jonathan Hill. My third gggf was Jonathan Hill who married Sukey Bosson Dec 1804 in Roxbury. I'm not sure what type of work he did but he may have traveled from home to find work. We know from family letters that he died before the Fall of 1833. This death date would fit when we think he died. Can anyone help find out more details on this death?

Attached is a Jonathan Hill Jr's death in Roxbury Ma Jan 1850. Parents Jonathan and Sally. Maybe the child of Jonathan and Sukey.

Attached is also the town record for his death which lists burial as Warren St B Gd - which is probably Burial Ground.

Here's a little info on that cemetery.
3.Warren or Kearsarge Avenue Burying Ground site, 1818. (A)
Note: Cemetery was closed in 1883. The graves were removed to Mount Hope and Forest Hills cemeteries and the area converted to a playground in 1890.
Copy of Inscriptions upon the Grave-stones in the Kearsarge-Avenue cemetery, Kearsarge Avenue, Roxbury : copied July 1890, by Garrett & Wood, surveyors (Boston, 1890), 28 pp.
Not in WorldCat or at FHL, but found at New England Historic Genealogical Society, Boston.

Forest Hills Cemetery | 95 Forest Hills Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts 02130 | Telephone 617 524 0128 | Fax 617 524 0848 |

Mount Hope
355 Walk Hill St Mattapan, MA 02126
(617) 635-7361

Thinking that if this is the son then maybe the father is buried with him.

I know the dates are way off - but maybe related and you might possibly find something.

Records for deaths online start 1841. You could contact the Mass Archives and see what they have for the year you are interested in -

Good luck

Thank you so much for the help. I'll see where this takes me. We have wondered where he could be buried. After his death, Sukey traveled to the Cincinnatti, Ohio area to live with one of her brothers with their living children. After her death, the children were sent to TENNESSEE to live with Bosson and Mayo relatives. I really hope to solve this dead end some day.
