I am searching for either an old shirt label of the R.H. Newell & Co., Inc.
shirt factory (established in 1900 in Medina, NY) or a copy of a label (that
I can duplicate). I am currently working on a project using old fabric
samples (I think of the 30's and 40's) that my grandmother, Ethel Andrews
and my mother, Anna Bess Andrews Hall, saved. I am working on a momento
(keepsake) that will recall and document that part of my family heritage and
time. If you can be of help or know of someone I can contact, I'd appreciate
it. Thank you.

Subject: [NYORLEAN] WWI Draft Cards
> Are Orleans County WWI draft cards available on microfilm? They have
Monroe County ones at LDS in Rochester, but nobody there could tell me if
they are available for Orleans County.

The brick wall is broken. Nathan's father was Joseph. From the Boston
Transcript dated 9 Aug. 1909 #485 found in the American
"Descendants give his father's name as Joseph, say his mother was born
a Sherman and that he had brothers: Joseph, David, James, and Samuel. He
married Mercy Madison. In 1898, a granddaughter, Mary Madison (Sherman)
Hills, 89 yrs old, was living in Buffalo, NY. An unmarried sister Elizabeth
aged 75 resided with her. A brother, James Sherman married Lucinda Sherman of
Moriah, Essex Co. NY The latter was daughter of Amos and Pamelia (Hendee)
Sherman. This Amos was son of Amos P. and Hannah (Douglas) Sherman, but who
Amos P (born 1762) was, this deponent sayeth not. Nathan Sherman served
during 1780 in Captain William Dyer's company of Vermont militia. Amos P. was
also a Revolutionary soldier."
This was received from the librarian at the Bennington,VT Museum
Now if I could only find a death notice for Nathan in Orleans Co. or
Wayne Co. and find out who Mary Sherman Hills husband was I would really be
happy. Both are on the Sherman monument in Shelby Center Cemetery.
I hope this will help someone.

I am researching an ancestor named Henry A. Bruner. He was a journalist and the editor for the "Orleans America" . I was thinking that there may be a biography written on him. Is there some way someone could check on this at the local library? He was born in 1823 and died in Aug 28,1903. I found a very short obituary in the Yates Co. Chronicles but also thought there may be a write up in the Orleans newspaper Thank you. Kathy Oster
I would like to welcome those of you new to this site and tell you there are some really great folks who are willing to help just for the asking. I, myself do Volunteer research at Andersonville Civil War Prison in Andersonville Georgia. There are Any research I do is absolutely at NO cost and I am willing to do what I can. There are more that 6200 prisoners on record from the state of New York and more than 2300 who died here, I thought I would send my offer.
Here are my sources of research.
There are 2 online databases to do lookups.....One by name...one by Company and Regiment. I also have a copy of the Dorence Atwater Death list
which has the names and grave numbers of some 13000 graves with only 460 marked as " UNKNOWN " This along with a CD I have which contains 34,000 names of the 45,000 who
were imprisoned there which helps me find prisoner records because of misspellings of the names or alternate names. I visit the prison site every
couple of weeks and have access to the onsite databases as well as the physical files. I would like to let you know of another service I offer which is to take photos of graves for a small fee.
.I also wish to thank the patience of those regular subscribers for my frequent postings.
If there is anything I can do in helping your research at Andersonville, please just ask.

I'm looking for early (1800-1810) baptisms in this county. Does anyone
on the list have any?
I'm looking for SERVICE/SERVISS/SERVOSS.
This surname shows up in the 1830 cencus for Ridgeway, and continues to
be there through the 1860's.
Also, are there any records available on the construction of the Erie
canal? Am I right in assuming that construction took place here? (I'm
not from NY)
Thanks for your time and consideration.
