  • 15.
    At an unknown site in a pasture up the hill from Beech Grove Road near 
    West Auburn is the graves of two little girls.  They are supposedly 
    buried along the fence line about half way up the hill on the Benscooter 
    farm that once belonged to John Smith.  In the barn that still stands, 
    is their gravestone that was bought and inscribed but never placed at 
    the graves.  The stone is unweathered and in excellent condition having 
    been sheltered all these years.  ***A
