Hi to all,
I've had lots and lots of mail, thank you to everyone again. We're still
waiting for the accountant to get back to us, she was in meetings all day.
The Black Horse C&D (demolition crew) have already begun their work on the
However they are being careful with the original pieces they find, this home
has been redone inside several times, but there are bits and pieces. They
will continue with the inside work until next week and wait for me to let
Shawn Galvin know the boards decision, if they require a letter. If the
decision is $5000, then we have to negotiate a bit.
I still have to find a company with a dump truck large enough to carry the
post and beams and the siding and what ever else is salvaged from the site to
storage, for FREE!! That may prove to be harder to do than saving the home.
That's just the update, hopefully I'll have an answer tomorrow.

Vern: Do you have any information as to what community she lived in or near?
Delaware County includes a very large geographic within which live some 4500
people. Also, there are several different small newspapers that focus on
events within a particular area of the county-Walton, Margaretville, etc. If
you do not have the name of a particular community, you might want to get a
copy of the death certificate which should provide that information. Then,
using info from the death cert you could ask members of the list to check the
appropriate newspaper or the obit. Hope this makes sense to you. John Jack
Does anyone have more info on Nancy Glendenning who m Francis Coulter &
Mary, May 1807, Bovina; m 1 - Wm Graham [who's he belong to???]
2 - Andrew McGibbon;
Mary d 1889, bur Bovina;
Does anyone have more info on Rev John Graham of Bovina ? I do not find
family record of John [who was m to Jane Gray] ever being a minister, so
am assuming Rev John was a cousin to John...both in Bovina at same time.
Who was Ann Graham who m Robt White & had Anne who m 1837 to John G
Thompson at Bovina??
Who was Charlotte Graham who m Robt Gow & had Charlotte 1860-1911 who m
David Wm Miller ??
all in Bovina
Could this Graham family also be the fam of Catherine b 1805,
Hawick, who m
1827 in Scot to Wm Glendenning, son of Wm & Mary Elliot. They went to
Montreal briefly then by 1832 to Bovina. Wm could be nephew to John
Glendenning of Andes.
any info helpful
My great-aunt MYRA SMITH, a long time resident of Delaware County, died
on January 5, 1996. She was 97.5 years old. Sadly, I was never able to
contact her while she was still alive.
Can anyone help me in finding her obituary?

I am looking for information on a Daniel Benedict who was living in Walton in
1850. It is possible he is the father of the Maria Benedict who married Fred
Jay McClenon. According to the 1850 Census it looks like his wife's name is
Nancy. I am also wondering if he is connected with the Early Benedict's of
Dear C. V Snyder;
Though I had no ancestors in Margaretville, my grandfather did grow up
in Andes, so I have a family connection in Deleware county and I do hate to
see those old homes go down willy-nilly to be replaced by nothing. Anyway
if you will e-mail me your mailing address, I'll be happy to send a check
towards the $5,000 you need. We just lost three more homes in Batavia (not
215 years old, (but mid-victorian) so that a local auto repair shop could
expand their business .
E-mail me privately, if you wish at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org Mary C.
To put this in some perspective, does anyone think that in 215 years anyone
will want to slap a historical marker on the commercial monstrosities that
are replacing the finely crafted buildings such as this?
In this day of throw away families, architecture, and heritage, twenty year
old stadia and office complexes are considered obsolete and bulldozed so
that some fatcat can get a bigger, better, grander temple to the sports or
business gods at taxpayers expense.

While checking my files, I came across a listing of the following
cemeteries that my g-g-aunt, Amy De La Gavett sent to the NEHGS back in
1947. The listings were recorded by her back in the 1940's and covers
these locations: Arena Old Cemetery; Laurel & Arena Cemetery; Union
Grove Cemetery; Downsville Cemetery; Arkville Cemetery; Shinople
Cemetery and Shavertown Cemetery & Annex. I did a quick check on the
Arena Old Cemetery, compared to what is listed on our site and it
appears to be different. I didn't check the other ones but figured that
I will double check them out before sending them on to you for the
Delaware site. Granted that the copy is a copy of many coped material
but is readable and should be be sent via the scanner. I will be in
contact with you after reviewing what is already on line. Guess I
should pay closer attention to what I got in my files and believe that
our researchers will benefit from Amy's work.

Linda O and the ladies at the County office have made an offer I know you
wouldn't want me to refuse.
July 29 is the day of the Gathering in 2000. Linda has offered us access to
the records and her great group of ladies to support your searching!! THANK
We will work out something to have the meeting on the front lawn of the
courthouse so spouses have a place to relax and enjoy while we dig for
I thought about having the dinner that night at the Hidden Inn, which is in
South Kortright. It's a historic (of couse) old home turned into a Inn and
restaurant. As the date gets closer I'll check with them on prices.
So start gathering your lists of I need to finds, and your questions I wonder
if they went there? Linda and her team will be there for us again in July!
Hi to all,
thank you for your letters, advice and support. I've had a very busy and
tense day. I finally talked to Shawn Galvin, who helped out a great deal.
He talked to the contractor who has the demolition permit, he want the
kitchen cabinets, stove sink ref. windows and doors and furnace, other than
that its rubble to him. Not to me!!
The parts he doesn't want are the parts I need, so this is the offer I sent,
if the town of Middletown gives him a letter of "Contribution" for the value
of the home, will he dismantle it easily, mark beams and put it in an area of
storage until I can raise the $$ to rebuild it in it's historical form?
Sounds like a great deal right?
The contractor said it sounded okay to him, but he wants the okay from his
accountant first, if it isn't going to benefit him to do it that way it will
cost $5000.00 roughly to have him remove it easily.
So I'm waiting for the accountant to let us know which way it's to be. I'm
hopeing the contribution, because 5000 is a lot of money to raise in just a
I will keep you posted. Again thank you to all who have written, We really
need to get these old homes registered if we can so this doesn't happen
again, NYC is buying out everything it can and historical register is the
only thing they seem hesitate at, notice I didn't say stop, because there is
very little stopping a train at full steam. The worst part is many of our
own are feeding the logs into the engine!!
Good morning to all,
Frustration is the root of this email. I found out last week through the
news paper that a 1784 home on main street margaretville is slated for
demolition this friday. I blame myself for not keeping up on the "news" so
to speak, had I known earlier I might have been able to do something. I'm
making phone calls and hopefully I will get somewhere today with Shawn Galvin
The home was lived in up to a month ago when it was part of a buy out. My
understanding is that NYC owns the land and the county through fema owns the
homes and that it's the countys responsibility to demolish the homes on lower
main street that were sold. They are in a flood plane and fema won't pay to
have them repaired.
This may be common sense to some, but this home is 215 years old, it's still
there floods or not!!
My goal is to save the home and have it moved to another site and have it be
a history center for the town of middletown, chances are slim at this late
date, this is my frustration, 215 years of history is about to go out, you
can only loose it once. It's an absolute shame that some folks just don't
see what they're giving up, the future is based on the past. At the rate our
past is being destroyed I wonder what the future holds!
Thank you for letting me air my frustration. Hopefully today the God of
common sense will hit someone and the house will be preserved for us all to
Now that my family and a few other special people have had a chance to look
at it, I'd like to announce the internet version of my latest book, "The
Family of Glenn and Mary Howard". They were my grandparents, and they both
had many roots in both Delaware County and Greene County, NY. The
introduction to the book explains the book in terms of my goals. If you're
interested, click below:

Linda probably has the answer to her question about Holland Patent by now,
but here it is again: it's a village in the Town of Floyd, Oneida County,
NY. This one caught my interest because I remember hearing the name once in
awhile as I grew up in Upstate NY, and thinking what an unusual place name.
It "makes sense" to me now knowing what little I know about land patents and
other stuff I've picked up since getting into genealogy.
Reading a query submitted 03/ 98, to the Delaware County, NY web site by Dan
Touse, I wanted to contact him. We share the same John GRAHAM immigrant
ancestor. My e-mails to Dan bounce. Dan if you monitor this list, or if
any one knows of a new address, I'd appreciate it if they would contact me.
