      BIRTH: Headstone says Apr 1806.

      From "Henefer, Our Valley Home" (p.89): Frightened--Because of the illness of her husband John, Esther Taylor was forced to work to care for her family every day. She walked to Echo, about 2 miles, to do washing on the scrub board for hotels and boarding houses. It was late at night when she was finished and she had no way to get home, but walk. One night as she walked along the railroad track just below Leonard's Point she heard some weird sounds like crying or moaning. There had been rumors of a cougar being seen and heard around the vicinity and Esther was sure the animal was after her. She was terribly frightened and ran home just as fast as her legs could carry her. Esther was always sorry she did not have courage to stop and investigate the noise because soon after this experience the body of Mrs. Esther Lythgoe, mother of James Lythgoe, was found lying in some trees beside the river. The old lady had been very ill and had wandered away from home. Esther always felt that perhaps she could have found Mrs. Lythgoe and saved her life.
