These are the tombstones of Lemuel R. Ladd and his wife, Phebe (Herrick) Ladd. They are the parents of John L. Ladd and grandparents of Charles Henry Ladd. The place is Union Cemetery, Braman Corners, New York, also sometimes called simply the Duanesburg Cemetery. Lemuel was born in Weymouth, Norfolk Co., MA on 18 Jan 1778. He was a long-term resident of Duanesburg, Schenectady Co., NY, where he died on 6 Mar 1849. Phebe (Herrick) Ladd was born on 24 July 1780 in Amenia, Dutchess Co., New York, and died on 18 Mar 1855, probably in Duanesburg. They had 12 children, including John L. Ladd and his next-older brother Lemuel. (This photo courtesy of Lisa Raines, on her Web site. She took it in 2003 and posted it in 2008.)
