I am trying to find an email address for W.C. Andrews who wrote the
revisions to the sketch of Issac and Hannah Smith found in the NYWyoming
archives. Five of my ancestors Ellen Smith, William H Soule, Agnes May
Soule, Benjamin Johnson, and Mabel Johnson(my grandmother) are mentioned
in the article. Please write me at seeside(a)webtv.net if you know where I
could find his address. My mail was returned from the address given at
the bottom of the article. Thank You, Silvia
I found an old picture of a toddler taken in 1903.
On the back is written
"Our little Edward,
born August 2, 1900,
taken September 5, 1901"
He is probably from the Sheldon / Bennington area.
Anyone know who he is?
I once saw a Wyoming Will Abstract Book, in a different state. I have never
seen it in another library. Does someone have access to it?
I am interested in the surname DAVIS. Of course I wasn't interested in this
name when I saw this book several years ago. Don't know how many DAVIS wills
might have been abstracted. If you have access to this book, could you let
me know how many or the name of the "Will Person" and then I can look at the
names I have uncovered? Thank you in advance.
Does anyone have any information on the DARDUS family listed in the 1860 census of China (Arcade) NY?
It lists :
Peter Dardus 38 farmer Ireland
Sarah " 38 "
Catherine " 16 NY
James 11 "
Peter 10 "
Catherine may be my Great Grandmother.
I just recieved my grandmother's marriage license and Her mother's last name is illegible! The only thing we can see for certain is that it starts with DA____ . So I went through the census for China to find a family with a daughter Catherine whose last name started with DA..In 1860 and 1850 she's the only one that fits. By 1870 she would have been married to my great grandfather, Frank King.
I know this is probably far out but any help would be appreciated.
I'm looking for info on any WARDs of this New York county but only in the
early 1800's and would sure appreciate hearing from anyone with any such
info to share.
My Ward was a Charles Ward, supposedly born in Allegany County, in 1805. I
don't know his parents. He showed up in Adams County, Illinois in 1836.
I'm hoping that he and possibly his parents were living at some time after
his birth in this county.
So, if you can share any Ward family info at all of WARDs in this county,
any time prior to 1835, I would sure appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks in advance.
Carl W. Ward
PS. This Charles WARD was my great grandfather.
Seems like I have so many cemetery questions. Here's another one
On the Rootsweb site there is a listing for Mt Ash Cemetery, Covington, NY
On the Findagrave site there is a listing for Mt. Nash Cemetery, Covington, NY
The Findagrave site has a map that puts "Mt Nash" near the corner of Altoft & State Rd.
I don't have a location for "Mt Ash".
Do you suppose this is one and the same cemetery with just a misspelling on one of them? As it seems strange ther would be 2 so closely named cemeteries in the same township.
In my travels today I found a small cemetery on Denton Corners road about halfway between Tenefly Rd and Rt 19A.
Has no sign with name. Some of the residents are Truman, Price, Smith and Madison, among others.
Does anyone have the name or any info on this?
Hi Stan and all. I visited the area again this past Summer. In particular I
stopped at the office that publishes "Historical Wyoming" in Warsaw. I'm
sure they probably have many more records and photos than I had time to
pursue and they're very helpful. I was able to find clipped copies of some
old newspaper articles with information on some of my paternal grandfather's
family. They also had burial information for my grandfather.
The cemetery on Quakertown Road is Quaker Settlement Cemetery or Quakertown Cemetery.
My Uncle (same one ) was caretaker there for years.
Many of my ancestors ( Griffen's and Durfee's ) are interred there.
Sickley's Corners is about 2 "country blocks " north of there.
Roberta and all,
Strange! My Uncle and I were just talking about Sickley's Corners this week.
According to him (he grew up in Quakertown) it was in the general area of present day Rt 238 and Buffalo Rd.
This is just west of Warsaw, NY.
The reason we were talking about it was, I ran across an old abandoned cemetery which according to some websites is called "Williams Cemetery", and there are quite a few Williams' buried there. But my Uncle says it should be called Sickley Corners Cemetery.
So this is the info I have tho it may be incorrect. Maybe someone has better info.
I have information regarding United Brethren in Christ Church which was
located at "Sickley's Corners" in Wyoming Co., NY. This was in 1880s.
Can anyone tell me where this would have been located?
Yes I would like a copy at your convenience. I'll reimburse you for the information regarding the Wheat Family. This Jerusha might give me some more information regarding her husband Edward Bumpus (Bump) 2nd.
I've been off internet intermittently due to problems with server so am using husband"s machine. One of these days I'll be back on line. Thank you!

I am finding the 1910 census for the village of Perry almost impossible to
read on Ancestry.com. Has anyone viewed the microfilm at the FHL? Since the
most unreadable part on Ancestry is the left side of the page where the names
are and the further right you go on the page the darker the print and easier
to read I wonder if it is the photography of the film by Ancestry rather than
the microfilm. Before I order the film I wondered if anyone has read it.
I am looking for leads on the Holmes family from East Gainsville, Aleghaney
Henry Preston Holmes was born there in 1824, also possibly a brother Volney
Holmes born about 1839. Does anyone else have ties to this family?
