    I'm not at all sure is really Abial Frost, even though the photo looks like it's of the same person pictured in the other photo of Abial. The trouble is Abial died 13 Apr 1849 and this picture is printed on paper with an albumen coating. (The original is slightly shiny and there is a place on it where the coating has flaked off.) Albumen paper was invented in 1850 by Louis Désiré Blanquart-Evrard, which is after Abial died.

    Ancestor Chart: Abial Frost
    Ancestor chart summarizing Evelyn's research into the ancestors of Abial Frost. It is obviously very much a work in progress. At the time it was made she had managed to work back to (4) John Frost's father, (8) Thomas but has none of the details she later uncovered.
    Descendants of Thomas Frost of Arrowsic Island
    Descendants of Thomas Frost of Arrowsic Island
    Despite its title this seem to be a summary of sources for an ancestor chart (now lost) for the ancestors of Thomas Frost of Hebron, CT, b. 1718. This Thomas Frost, who is listed as number 1 here, is the Thomas Frost who Evelyn identified as Abial Frost's father.

  • Notes  Died:
    • I asked Evelyn Frost Rush, "Your hint ... that the original photo if Abial might still be in the possession of the Town Historian in Warrensburg got me looking around on their Web site. There, I tripped over a page that is called the "1850 Federal Census Mortality Schedule." In it, Abial is listed as having died of "Dropsy" in April of 1850 at the age of 76. Doesn't the information you have for him list his death as having occurred in 1849?"

      She responded, "...I had a researcher, Betty Buckell, research it for me. She found his gravestone in the Wilsey Cemetary and I have a photo of graves taken later when I was there. The date is clearly cut in the stone and was 13 Apr. 1849 and it even said "in the 75th year of his age. It is also found in the records compiled by several Thurman/Athol Town Historians and is a compilation of 17 small Thurman/Athol cemetaries."
