Additions and/or corrections:

Capt. Wm. Wheat [how the stone reads] and Polly, His Wife [how the stone reads, but over the years it has deteriorated severely, so it's barely discernible] Sally [Whitney] Goodfellow

Correction sent in by Dan Touse
I have the same death date for Lyman, but have his birth recorded as 2 Oct 1837.
Ansyl Stilson's middle name was Ford, so listing should show Ansyl F Stilson. There may have been a transcription error, though it certainly is not unheard of for stones to be carved with errors.
For background info
Ansyl Ford Stilson b 30 Sept 1813, W Meredith, to Nathan, Jr & Sophia Ford Stilson; d 12 Feb 1857, Franklin; he m 30 Dec 1835 at Franklin, to Susan Dewey, b 16 Oct 1813, Franklin; d 24 Dec 1841, Franklin.

Additional info from Annette Campbell
John B. Northup visited this cemetery about 10 years ago. He is my Northup/rup/rop guru and I have his 3" thick workbook on all branches of the family [he never found any trace of my Gilbert's parents either :( ] However, he lists the following for the cemetery behind the school in Franklin. He wasn't sure of the correct name.
Wellington Northup 19 Jun 1824-1868
Susan Northup Sept. 1857- d/o Wellington & Eunice
Eunice Northup 21 Apr. 1823-1873 w/o Wellington. d/o Eliphaz & Desire Bartlett Loveland

Another place on the net I have seen where Wellington Northup was J. Wellington. I have no idea who Wellington belonged to, but there is a William and Amanda Foote Northrop buried here and William is known to us to be a Northup family member, born 1801. This Northup family descend from Stephen, 1645 of RI and is the one who settled in Franklin and Otego abt 1803. I think my Gilbert is a member of this family. It's always seemed strange to me that members of this family "picked up" the rup and rop ending to thier name just before 1800, but possibly coming from Connecticut where the other Northrup family was from and seeing it spelt that way decided it was the right way. This other Northrup family descend from Joseph Northrup of Milford CT 1639, a completely different family from Stephen's, and many of this family lived around Delhi, Andes, etc. --Annette
