Comments:

After tramping around Whitehouse Cemetery I decided to take a break and get some lunch. I drove north on Cemetery road to Weckerly Road and there, on the right hand side, I spotted a small cemetery surrounded by a chain link fence. When I turned right onto Weckerly I saw the name "Rupp Cemetery" on a wooden sign.

I ate at a Subway in a little strip mall on the corner of Weckerly and Finzel Roads and later went back to have a closer look at this cemetery. The back portion of the mall parking lot adjoins the cemetery so this was a good place to leave the car. Several gates in the fence were chained and locked but I found an open gate at the north west corner.

Almost immediatly I spotted the name "Farrington" on one large gravestone. Later I found several Bradley graves including one small stone marked "Dr E. Bradley, 1828-1909" - my 2nd great grandfather. I took photographs of these gravestones and, in some cases, I took multiple photographs in an attempt to record indistinct engraving. I have also included close cropped views of some gravestones.

In November 2005 I returned to this cemetery armed with crayons and large sheets of white paper. Making "Rubbings" on the worn surfaces revealed more details. These details are mostly not visible in the photos but I'll include the information in the table below.

You may notice some images distorted or only partially appearing. I have not yet sorted out a remedy for this. The originals are all fine but the problem occurs when the images are viewed or downloaded online.
