My sister and I will be making a one-day trip to Delaware to visit a relative. However, while there we'd like to also visit the Bovina Center Cemetary (where there are a whole lot more relatives). Would some kind soul send me directions on how to find the cemetary? We will probably be coming in from somewhere south of Bovina and Bovina Center.
Thanks very much.
The West Glenville fire department has a web page.. They are part of the City of Amsterdam, Schenectady, NY.
Re: Margaret DEMOTT. DeMott's were of Dutch background. see Richard Duprel's website.
I could not find a John MEAD Margaret DEMOTT marriage in the not up to date genealogy that I have.
Does anyone know where West Glenville, NY is or was? I can't find it on a NY map. It states in a couple different records that John MEAD m Margaret DEMOTT, who was from there and they lived and died there.
Not to confuse anyone searching MEAD of English descent in NY, this MEAD/MEET family I'm inquiring about is of Dutch descent. They originated out of Holland>New Amsterdam (NY), some staying in NYC, most moving to NJ and others to NY state around the late 1600s early 1700s.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Over the years, I've been in contact with many of you, searching for my Drock and DeRock families. You've been unfailingly helpful, and I don't think I'd have put any of this mystery together without you. I am coming closer, now, to a place where I want to draw the line in the sand, and start compiling all this information for publication.
I'm hoping to glean as many perspectives as possible as to 'where we came from', among the different lines. The reality turns out to be somewhat different from what many of us were told, and makes for a compelling story. I am specifically hoping to contact descendants / researchers of the following families in Delaware and Allegany Counties:
Delaware County family names include:
Bennett, Berg, Boyd, Carroll (Walton), Clark (Walton), Cleaver, Clever, Cole, Cuddeback, DeRock, DeWitt, Drock, Dyer, Fitzgerald (Sidney), Ford, Franklin (Walton), Gabriel, Perrow (Pero), Purdy, Randall, Sawyer, Seaman, Walker
Allegany County family names include:
Aust, Ballard, Burdick (Caneadea), Chirkin, Clark, Cleaver, Clemons / Clemens, Clever, DeRock, Drock, Fitzgerald, Franklin (Caneadea), Johnson (Caneadea), Lawson, Little (Caneadea), McIntyre, Ost, Pero, Peterson, Phillips (Caneadea), Pool, Ray
Note that several of the county surnames overlap... I show those names in italics. Also - some of these family names are common in the counties. Your specific line may very well not connect, but it's certainly fun to see!
Looking forward to your response, and to sharing information,
Hello, I am wondering if anyone on the list has the resources to do a search for me? I have a Marion Mead b. 1866/67 in Delaware Co., NY, he is in Greene County at age three, living with another family. I would like to find the names of his parents.
Hi, I am looking for a list of children for James Mead/Jerusha Craft, and David Mead/Elizabeth Ballard. Along with any dates that you may have for them. I have a bit of confusion here, that I don't want to go on about in this request, but if someone has some info on either of these families, maybe then you can help me straighten out this possible mess. I'm afraid I may have wrong information in my file and on my FTM site.
Kenneth V. Graves' new book does include a Hiram Graves who married Ann
Botsford on Sept. 11, 1831, but other details do not match; this Hiram,
Graves indicates, was b. Dec. 13, 1809, moved to Indiana in 1844, and d.
Nov. 3, 1855 (page 146). Children were Edwin, George, Delia, Amelia, and
Lamson (page 291). If you want more information, please contact me at

Hi, I found this in the Delaware Co. site and was wondering if anyone could tell me where this was located. Eli Mead is my 4th GrGrandfather and I would like to try and locate the actual site of his home.
At a period more remote than any of these enterprises there was an ashery operated by one Hamican, on the farm of Eli Mead, where it is probable he made a settlement about the year 1816.
I hope there are some Butler researchers out there that can help me. I
have a Sarah (Sally) Butler who married a Charles Gray in Delaware County.
It is said that she was born 1799 in Connecticut. Her father was John Butler
and her mom is said to be Martha (Patty) Eells. Here's the problem. John
and Patty were living in Westchester County in 1790 and 1800, when she was
supposed to have been born. I can think only that maybe she was wrong about
where she was born or else they were in CT for a year or Patty was visiting
family. Maybe someone can help me with where she really was born.

Trying to resolve an issue involving the spouse of Jesse Adams, son of
Justus Adams, early Roxbury resident.
Jesse Adams (1799-1879) was the brother of Elizabeth, w/o Sniffin Ganoung
and Rebecca w/o Henry Ganoung of Roxbury.
Jesse Adams married Hannah Mead according to his neice but the stone next
to Jesse reads "Nancy W. Adams (1801-1848). Could Nancy be a variant of
Jesse had no wife in the 1850 or 1860 census. He had 9 children including
two sets of twins, all apparently born before 1850. He moved to Sheridan in
Chautauqua Co. where he died.
Any leads appreciated.
If the family you are looking for lived in the village of Franklin, you
might want to contact Donald E. Smith, PO Box 3, Franklin, NY 13775 - 607
829-8891 as he is the village historian. Also the Franklin Free Library has
a lot of information on families and wanted to index a number of scrapbooks
and other info.
As I remember Vern and LaVerne are the same person but it has been too many
years since we talked...

You can also subscribe to the mailing list for Missing Links. I have for a
while and look forward to the new newsletter each week. I have even made a
couple of connections with bits and pieces I have "saved" at flea markets
here in Southeast Georgia. One was a graduation announcement for LaPorte
Indiana High School 1919..I found it a local flea market in a box of
postcards. Posted the list of graduates at missing links and was contacted
by more that one descendent. Too neat!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy Missinglinks as much as I do.

Hi, I am looking for the parents of Marion Mead (m). I found him in the 1875 census Ashland, Greene Co., NY with James Tompkins 72, and Sarah Tompkins 64, both born in Greene Co., NY in this census it says Marion was b. in Delaware Co., NY and is adopted. I also find him again in 1870 at 3 yrs. with James and Sarah again. Even more confusing is that later on Marion m. Marian Mead and this is her maiden name. If anyone knows anything about Marion Mead's parents, I would appreciate any help.
