You're mention of the IOOF brings back some information I stumbled across
in my own family when my mother-in-law passed away. The IOOF stands for the
"International Order of Odd Fellows". I believe it no longer exists in Attica,
but according to my husband, it was a fellowship organization where men of the
area would gather, have a meeting and most times enjoy an evening of cards,
etc. Hopefully someone out here will have a further explanation that will help
you. I'll be curious myself to learn more about it as I remember hearing my
father-in-law was also a member. If you do hear anything, please let me know.

SURFING THE NET FOR YOUR ANCESTORS:
This is my first submission to the list. I am looking for information on
the Baldwin family. I am specifically looking for Edwin Martindale Baldwin
born about 1840 in Wyoming County. The 1850 census shows his mother but no
father. If anyone has access to an 1840 Wyoming census I would be interested
in checking for his father. Thanks to all

I have many relatives who lived in Pike and are buried at Elmwood Cemetery.
>From the pictures I have, it appears to be a fairly well-maintained cemetery.
The Pike Town Historian can help you get info for Elmwood. She is:

There is much genealogy information stored in the vault in Pike, but my
experience is that you must contact Mrs. Flint for access/copies. She

Does anyone know how I could get info on
the Elmwood Cemetery located in Pike??
Thanks for any help.
We're looking for the family of Michael Fenton KEARNEY and Catherine
CURRAN Kearney who lived near Attica, Wyoming County (formerly Genesee
County) in the 1820s. Michael and Catherine were born in Ireland
according to the family history, circa 1795. They had four children:
(1) Edward T., born 1825; (2) John Michael, born probably 1827; (3) Ann;
and (4) Catherine Serene. John Michael Kearney was born in the vicinity
of Attica, probably in 1827.
The 1830 federal census reflects a "Finton Kearney" living in or
near Attica, with one adult female, an additional adult male, and two
boys (one under 5, another 5-10). This household might be that of
Michael and Catherine.
The four children all moved from New York, with John Michael Kearney
ending up in the vicinity of Ann Arbor, Michigan and then Livingston
County, Michigan, by the 1840s or 1850s.
Do any of these folks sound familiar?
