Does anyone have a copy of George Wright's "West End Addition" map dated 1905 and "Munns Addition" dated 1904. I am trying to figure out exactly where my great grandfather's lots stood. They are labeled on the above maps. Thanks! Amy
P.S> I figured out the Munn real estate question from yesterday...

I just got some land deeds of my great grandfather's. It appears that he purchased property from Munn piano co....Were they owners of land besides the piano co or is this more likely the actual Munn Piano building. Where have I seen this Munn Piano Co. before? Was it in that Story of Walton book? I would be interested to hear about the Munn's and their land in Walton. My great grandfather owned a lumberyard on Delaware Ave. Perhaps, this is the lot he put it on. Deeds are from 1907, 1908, 1910.
I find on this site in the cemetery listings for Roxbury a Sarah
Keator born 1834 and died July 8, 1898. Buried in the Methodist Church
cemetery in Roxbury. There are many "More" names listed there as well.
May or may not be the Sarah you are seeking.
Thank you for the info, there were other Sarah Keators and this is
one of them, my Sarah/Sally was born in 1814 in Westkill, Greene,
NY. Thanks again, Laura Cross Seward llseward(a)mcn.net

Can anyone tell me if there are any newspapers in the Roxbury area,
dated in 1881? I'm looking for a death notice or obit on Sarah/Sally
Cross Keator More. She died 24 July 1881 apparently in Roxbury,
but there is no marker in the Roxbury Cem. with either of her husbands,
Harmon Keator and Solomon More. They both have stones there.
I've checked with Roxbury and they have no information that far back.
Sally and Harmon had 4 children. Church records would also help.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Laura Cross

My name is Amy and I am new to the list. Many of my ancestors resided in Delaware County, mainly in Walton and Tompkins. My great grandfather was Robert Sydney Jones, a respected contractor/carpenter who built many of the homes in Walton and the surrounding areas in the early 1900's. He died prematurely from a fall off a roof of a home he was working on in the summer of 1926. He died 5 months after the fall from head and back injuries. He was a hard working man and even owned his own lumber yard with quarters supposedly on Delaware Street, Walton. I have his obit but would kill for an article about his accident. He lived in Walton but the accident was in Oneonta.
My Jones family from the Walton area include great great great grandfather Timothy Ellis Jones and wife Eliza Teal Jones, great great grandfather Albert Ellis Jones and wife Mary Booth Jones, and great grandfather Robert Sydney Jones and wife Lorrabelle Hunt Jones.
The Booths seem to be mainly from Tompkins....seeking info on great great grandfather Amaziah Booth and wife Thirza ot Thursa. Also, I believe I am linked to Erastus Booth of Tompkins. Any info on Booths of Tompkis/Walton would be greatly appreciated. I can't find Amaziah and Erastus in any cemetery records but they HAVE to be in the area.
Looking for obit of my great great grandfather Albert E. Jones who died 1882 in Walton area at young age of around 32. His death is listed in Walton House Hotel obit section. I believe it was January 19th or around there.
That's all for now. I hope someone might have some info for me. Amy dimos(a)dellnet.com

I am trying to find out if the Thomas Strangeway who was married to Ellen
Henderson is the same Thomas Strangeway who was also married to Agnes Nesbit.
(Thomas and Ellen Henderson Strangeway are the parents of Christopher
Strangeway and Thomas and Agnes Nesbit Strangeway are the parents of Nancy
Strangeway, wife of Archibald Tweedie).

I have this book (not the one on ebay). It is WONDERFUL. If your ancestor
was in the 144th, this is definitely worth bidding on. It was written by an
officer who was with the 144th throughout the war and details all the
campaigns and life in the unit. It has a complete roster of the men who
served and pictures of officers.
