About Eliab Gardner

Eliab and sons left Deep River MM, in 1811, to moved to Elk MM, in Preble County, OH, then in 1814 the family moved to (Whitewater MM), but settled instead at Salem MM, Liberty, Union Co., Indiana, Eliab and Sarah are buried in the Salem MM Cemetery 3 miles SE of Liberty, Indiana. Their marker is just inside the gate about 10 ft to the north, they must have been about the first burials in this plot. The cemetery is well maintained to this day (1998). The markers were 2X6 wood and in 1972 I could read that it listed Eliab b. Nantucket, and then below that his paternal ancestry back to Thomas Gardner, as Eliab, Richard, Solomon, Richard, Richard, Thomas. Then the same was done for Sarah (Stanton). These have rotted in 1997 and need to be replaced. they are broken off at the ground, but still lay there on the ground. The names were vertically from top to bottom.

Jonathan Huddleston husband of Phebe Gardner, arrived to Salem MM in 1815, probably to follow his wife's parents and siblings.

There is a wood marker abt 10" wide 18" high, just inside the gate on the right, with a simular marker for his wife Sarah Stanton. The original wood marker was very readable in 1974, listed his ancestry as son of Richard Gardner and Sarah Macy, son of Solomon Gardner and Anna Coffin, son of Richard Gardner and Mary Austin, son of Richard Gardner and Elizabeth Shattuck, son of Thomas Gardner and Sarah Hopcot of Salem, MA. more information Don Cordell
