Yes, Medina is in Orleans county. It is one the Erie Canal and once was a bustling, busy place!
The historian for the township is Mr. Richard Nellist, 517 N. Academy St., Medina, NY 14103. Email rhn(a)eznet.net
But, according to the Orleans county webpage, the village of Medina is located in the Towns of Ridgeway and Shelby and was incorporated on 3 Mar 1832. The web page states that the village vital statistics begin in 1885. The village historian is Mr. Nellist's wife, Shirley. The webpage (rootweb) has additonal information about libraries and historical societies.
Mr. Nellist was so helpful to me in my research regarding "my" Howard and Paul Boddy who were proprietors of White's Hotel in Medina around 1909.
There are some excellent old photographs of Medina found in the book, Orleans County History, Past to Present 1976.
Good luck hunting! Patricia Boddy Tharp
Seek information regarding parents of Mary Frances Payne/Paine, b. Sept.
1836, died Dec. 27, 1916, Albion. Married Charles E. Grinnell, b. Nov. 1832,
died Dec. 29, 1918. Need proof that Mary Frances was the daughter of Joseph
Paine/Payne and Phebe Palmer of West Barre. Any assistance appreciated.

If you have access to the on-line census records and have relatives in Barre, you really should check it out. For some reason, bless his heart, the enumerator asked not only what state, but what town were they born in. This is even true for foreign born people. I have been looking through this record and until I got to Town of Albion, it was the all the same, but all of a sudden there is this extra stuff. It doesn't continue for the whole town, some one must have told them they were doing it wrong but if you are lucky maybe it will give you a fact unknown to you.
So, if you subscribe to Ancestry.com, the Town of Albion starts at page 506 and is worth looking at.

I'm looking for a Phebe or Phoebe LUSK and her parents.
I received the following from Tamara Turner. Any help is appreciated.
I originally started requesting records for everyone on my patriot line for
my DAR application. The State of Michigan did not have a death cert for her
husband Nathaniel Huntoon who died 6 years before her in 1893. So I
requested a copy from the Clinton County records and they had one for both
Nathaniel and Phoebe Huntoon. Unfortunately, it is an 8.5x14 legal size
document and my scanner is part of my printer and only 8.5x11. But I
checked back through my records and realized that I never requested a copy
from the state for Phoebe. I have only had moderate luck in MI with records
around the turn of the century.
Right now, I've got a request into the Clinton County Genealogists to print
out a copy of her obituary that appeared in the Clinton Republican on 7 Dec
1899. I'm hoping some of the verbiage lists her parents.
I originally found some dates for her when I found the "Mother" and "Father"
Huntoon gravestones next to their son Plum Huntoon and not to far down from
their other son Alanson in the Merrihew Cemetery in Olive Twp, Clinton
County, MI http://www.dewittlibrary.com/cemetery/merrihew/Merrihew.htm
The son Plum Huntoon's death cert says his mother's name is Phoebe Lusk born
in New York.
After that I came across Nathaniel's obituary in a Huntoon researcher's work
that states "he was married to Phebe Lusk in Clarendon, New York, December
19, 1835." So I started searching around Clarendon for other Lusks and not
just Huntoons. I found the will site and it was linked to your will posting
on Rootsweb. Then I searched for other Lusk messages and the picture was
starting to fall into place. This is a very unexpected find. I was only
looking for a will for Nathaniel to prove a link in my application and I end
up bringing down a brick wall on a female line that I never hoped to make a
As for Phoebe's birthdate:
Gravestone in Merrihew says 1815-1899
Clinton County DC says she was 84y2m5d when she died November 28,1899
So she was born approx September 23,1815?
In the 1850 census in Murray Twp, Orleans Co, NY she's 35 (1815)
In the 1860 census in Bingham Twp, Clinton Co, MI she's 46 (1814)
In the 1870 census in Bingham Twp, Clinton Co, MI she's 54 (1816)
In the 1880 census in Olive Twp, Clinton Co, MI she's 66 (1816)
That's what I have on her so far. I'll let you know if I find out more from
the obituary or maybe I'll try requesting a State DC. Thanks again for
A hardy thank you to Jennifer, Neal, Susan,, Sandra, Marchia, Candace,
Nicol, & Melodie for the replies. Not only has Orleans County the best
web site, but the kindest and most helpful listers.
I failed to write in my request that I had already searched the county
web site's census records. Some of you even did a search for my BEDWIN
family - bless you!!
Perhaps like many of our ancestors, they were just missed by the census
A requested search with http://www.ancestralfindings.com resulted in this
find - which I believe is my family.
Here's Your Requested Information Regarding:
Jacob & Martha BEDWIN
Only listing I could find in this database:

As the subject line says, I'm hoping someone has access to the 1850
census. I'm looking for Jacob and Martha BEDWIN. They arrived in
America from England in 1848 and settled in Orleans County. At least
that's where I've found some of their children.

This is good question. The answer is both. Mostly the were never carved
on the stone but in some cases, such as remarriages, they were buried
elsewhere. We would have no way of knowing so they were included. And in
some cases there is a stone but they are not dead yet. Those kind were
usually not included but some slipped through.

I was looking through the wonderful cemetery listings on the Orleans genweb site and noticed some of my relatives death dates are not filled in. Does this mean they were not buried there, or they just did not fill it in?
Thanks for any help.
