Hutchinson Gravestones
Here are pictures of A. F. & Eliza Hutchinson's gravestones. A. F.'s stone has now been moved to Norwich Cemetery next to his wife's. It was for years in a fence row in Greenfield township east of Martelle. It's said there was a dispute over where the fenceline was and so to "settle" it he was buried where he thought it ought to be. Probably just a story.

Norwich History
Ihave some more information on the founding of the Norwich Cemetery.
Actuallyit was first a town by the name of Norwich. On July 6, 1852 the town was started. I have a handdrawn map of the streets. Apparently the man who pushed for the town was John Dumont who lived at the next 4 corners north of the town. John Dumont is buried at Norwich and is a veteran of the war of 1812. (John's farm eventually became our family farm in 1949) Several Peet's had owned it in the intervening years and after Dad's death, I sold it. My ggrandparents and 6 of my grandfather's brothers and wives are buried there and we have a plot there too. Eber Peet had a dynasty of 8 sons, he gave land to 4 of the sons in the Walnut Creek area and the other 4 sons had farmland on either side of Norwich
Withthe coming of the railroad two miles to the south to the town of Martelle, the town ceased to exist and on October 16, 1865 the Norwich Cemetary Association Corporation was formed. My husband is now the secretary of the board and measures for the graves and is kind of a Sextant.

Soper Memorial at Norwich Cemetery

Among the early settlers in Fairview township, in the area adjoining Greenfield township, were members of the Soper family: represented by the Jacob Soper family, Timothy Soper, and Orin R. Harvey. Their westward trek from Chenango county, New York, to Jones county, made with horses and wagon, consumed five weeks in the fall of 1847. Of the Jacob Soper family, a two year old son, Chauncey, died in 1848; the mother, Mrs. Jacob (Celinda) Soper died in 1857. Apparently both were buried in a private plot around which the Norwich cemetery was platted in 1865, attested to by various deeds by which parcels of land were transferred to the Norwich cemetery. Attached to the Soper monument in the old part of the cemetery, is a plaque with the following inscription thereon:

"Jacob Soper, his wife, Celinda, and their four children: Erastus G., Roswell K., Lillis, and Chauncey, aged from six years to four months, accompanied by his brother, Timothy Soper and a brother in law, Orin R. Harvey, drove a team of horses with a farm wagon containing family wearing apparel, bedding, etc., from the town of Pitcher, Chenango county, New York, to Jones County, Iowa, during the autumn of 1847, leaving their home in New York on the 11th day of September and arriving on the 18th day of October via Ithaca, and Corning New York,; Erie, PA,; Cleveland and Toledo, Ohio; Adrian and Coldwater Mich.; Michigan City, Chicago and Savanna, Ill.

"The same fall, Jacob Soper entered at the Dubuque land office a farm of 320 acres upon which the family settled and on a portion of which they, who this monument commemorates, new lie buried. They opened up and improved the land, reared and as best they might, educated their children, and died comparatively young in years, a result of the labors and privations of pioneer life.

"This stone is erected to the memory of Jacob Soper and Celinda Harvey Soper, in grateful appreciation of what they did, and endured, in order to establish their family in the new and prosperous State of Iowa--by their eldest child, Capt. Erastus B. Soper, A. M., LLD of Emmetsburg, Iowa"

Soper family information from Lesley & Renee Franks. Photographs submitted by Sharyn Mathews who says "I am researching Lucy Soper and Joseph Baldwin Brown, and their families; Joseph and Lucy were my great-great-grandparents. This monument talks about Lucy's brother, Jacob, but I have had little luck in finding similar info about Lucy and Joseph's trek westward. Any info you might have would be appreciated."
