Thank you every one for your help about Sandy Creek Cemetery. There is one in Orleans Co. and since the lady in question is from Holley I think that must be the one.
Can't believe how may people answered that one tiny question. Thank You. Thank You.
I would really appreciate it if someone who has access to the 1820
Genesee County Census would lookup Charles Simpson who the index lists
as being on Page 293 living in Stafford. I am trying to determine if he
could be the father of Lyman Simpson who later moved to Sheldon from
I agree with you. I have been researching two men b. in England, from the
very early 1600s, that have been confused by earlier researchers as one
person. One man is Henery HERICKE and the other is Henry "Hen" HEYRICKE.
Every record that our cooperative group or researchers has found on the
latter individual names him as Henry or "Hen." as he usually signed his
name. Except the Will of his brother, John, and a second Will of his aunt,
Elizabeth, Viscountess Campden, where he is named as Henry John Heyricke.
Two names for an Englishman about 400 years ago. Granted this is rare!

I am responding to Annes' question of middle names. I don't think it is safe
to try to answer for all of Europe. I do know that the Dutch had the habit
of using their father's first name followed by "zen" which means son.
So, generations ago Theunis Thomaszen Quick had a son named Jacob Theuniszen
Quick. And I would assume that Theunis' father was named Thomas.
On the other hand, my Great grandfather born in Scotland, Thomas Hume (no
middle name?) had a son Thomas Hume, who also seemed to have no middle name,
and no mention of Sr. and Jr. But, in Scottish records of that period, I
have seen some people with middle names.
There are probably whole books on how names have been used. It's an
I'm looking for information on Cleora Stickney b. 1833 at Gainesville, NY.

Jane, Henry H. & Edgar.
Cleora moved as a child to Ohio and later Wisconsin where she died. Any
information on her early childhood, parents and history of that time period
in Gainesville would be appreciated.

A question came up at work yesterday concerning middle names. Hopefully one
of these Genealogy lists can help to answer it for me.
Why do people have middle names? What was the origin?
According to one lady from Greece, she claimed Europeans do not have middle
Does anyone know anything about this???

Hi! Back again. There is a Forest Hills Cemetery on Cortland County-it is
located in Cortlandville. This would be close to Boston.NY a.morgan

On the Wyoming Co. Rootsweb page i've tried both of the e-mail links for Betty Thomas and both return my mail to me.
Does anyone have a current link for her and/or who do I contact to let them know this isn't working?
I am new to the list and am searching the Luther Foster family. Is there
anyone willing to copy and send me the obituaries of Luther Foster, died
16 Nov. 1846 at Warsaw, NY and his wife Ruth Hedges Foster, died 7 March
1860, Warsaw, NY.
I will pay for copies and postage. Please contact me by e-mail. Thank
