On my website there is a list of 60,000 names of people buried in Columbia Co. Also there
is a list of 359 cemeteries to be used in conjunction with the names. See Vital
Records-Deaths, then Columbia Co. There is a Martin Krum listed as buried at the Dunavin
Residence as you stated.
Using the cemetery list, you will find instructions as to how to get a photocopy of the
page on which the record was published. Columbia Co. Historical Society has the book.
Sometimes directions were given so that you would at least be in the vicinity. I
didn't have room in the database to copy the directions which were sometimes
extensive. Also, some route numbers have changed, and very often the property is no
longer owned by the same family (most of the gravestones were transcribed in the 1930s) so
it didn't seem like terribly useful information except for someone like yourself. As
an alternate solution, I made arrangements with CCHS so that you can get the information
easily and cheaply if you want it. CCHS might be able to tell you more about its location
after they read any directions given. Since the stone was read as recently as 1969, there
is a good chance that it is still there.
I was wondering if anyone could help me locate the present day
some ancestors grave stones. In The Columbia. v1(2) 1985, it states that
Martin Krum is buried at the Dunarin (Dunavin) residence, Chatham Center. He
was buried in 1801 so I'm curious if there is still some type of marker at
his resting place. Does anyone happen to know if the Dunarin residence still
exists or how I could find out who the present day owner is? I'm planning a
trip back to NY from my home in California and I would like to visit the site
if possible. Thank you.
