Holly, I am new here and I am really missing something. What is the
procedure and where do I find the ground rules? I am not sure how I got on
this list, but I am seeking information about possible relative on Staten
Island. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Yours is the one
name that comes up most often, hence I direct my questions to you.
This is not the first time that I have seen a subject line starting with "re"
followed by a subject that I haven't seen before.
In this instance, "re: Ross Family Bible record."
What a minute, I thought, I never saw the posting called "Ross Family Bible
When I have had similar thoughts over other topics, I have dismissed them
with the notion that I must have missed them or just deleted them without
opening them. But now I am thinking that is not it. That I am missing the
original postings and getting the responses. Is that possible? Is anyone else

>I am shocked to find family names on the list you have from the Ross family
Seeking information about spouse and children of Caleb Lyon, born 1822 in Lewis County, NY, died ca. 1875 in Rossville, Staten Island, Richmond County, NY. Reported to have had one son, Caleb and one daughter, Henrietta. Caleb the elder was territorial governor of Idaho 1864-1865. He is supposed to be buried in Greenwood Cemetery, probably in Brooklyn, NY. Would like information about spouse's name, her date and place of death and anything about their children.
Last week there was someone researching the Lisk name from Staten Island? I just notice this on the rootsweb's Pa web page. http://www.rootsweb.com/~palackaw/news/news1903c.html
A wedding took place at the home of postmaster and Mrs. Mark K. Bishop, Fifth street, last evening, when their daughter, Julia Bishop, was married to George Lisk, of Port Richmond, Staten Island, NY. Ceremony was performed by Rev. W. F. Gibbons of the Presbyterian church. After a wedding tour of the New England states, they will make their home at Port Richmond where Mr. Lisk is postmaster.
I thought I heard or read somewhere that this was a State run cemetery. I
don't know if this means that it's upkeep is funded by the state.... Does
anyone know what 'state run' refers to?

Just for your info. I have the mortality schedules for 1860 and 1870 and
would be willing to do a look up. I have transcribed them both and I'm
waiting for them to be posted on the site. Keep in mind though the 1860
Mortality schedule does not have the reference numbers Holly mentioned.
However you will find some luck with the 1870 schedule.
All the best
A lot of people go through censuses without realizing there's another
part on a separate reel and they should be looking through it. I speak of the
Mortality Schedules. The enumerator would ask the family if anyone had died
in the previous year, noting the name, the age, the cause of death, marital
status, occupation and even the month of the event. Then they even began
attaching a number to the deceased, namely the number of the household being
For example, I found in the 1870 Mortality Schedule for Northfield,
#73 Albert DECKER, 24, b NY, oyster dealer d Mary 1870 of consumption
Then I turn to the census and find his family:
New Springville, Northfield, Richmond Co.
#73 Japhat ALSTON, 76, carpenter, b NJ
Catherine A DECKER, 49, k h, b NY
So do take the little bit extra time to seek out the mortality schedules.

I received a letter today from Ms. Agnes Miller 55 Lawrence Ave. Staten
Island, NY 10310-3029. It requested payment for the annual care for my
Family Plot! Mind you, when I went to the cemetrey 2 years ago the area
where my LUCKING's were burried were so over grown that there were large oak
trees tied together by vines & poison ivy.
I sent a letter requesting a photo copy of the records for the LUCKINGs and
never recieved a word back but my check was cashed. I guess that that was
"last years donation".
I think that I will write to this Lady and ask if another donation will get
me a photo copy. It is signed by Charles Stock, I guess that is the
caretaker, but I amy have more luck with the volunteer.
