RE: Andrew Potter
You are most welcome. I am working on getting your other St. Lawrence County pics also, You have done much work on my Howe/Kilbounre family from Wells, VT which I greatly appreciate.

Your work is very well researched and trustworthy so you have helped my family history so much. My great grandfather Edgar Aldous has a one year discrepancy in his headstone birthdate and his other records. Seems to be a a common dilemma with the Howe family ( he married Edith Howe).

If you are ever in the GRanville, NY/WElls, VT area and have time, I would love to meet and talk about the work you have done for so many in my families.

Andrew Howk/Huyck #27906291
You have a lot of Howk/Huyck memorials. I was wondering if I could get your opinion on two memorials. I found an Isaac Howk (#14828587) married to Sarah (#14828628) and I think his father might be Andrew. Can you take a look and weigh in? Thanks, Lisa

RE: Philip Spauldin Memorial
The Spalding/Spaulding/Spalden names are spelling differently in so many places, it's hard telling. I've seen that before where the father does not have the "u" and the children do or some of them have the "u" and some not. Crazy bunch I guess. Sometimes the agency doing the spelling (census, death, Birth records, etc. spelled the best they knew how.

RE: Philip Spauldin Memorial
I appreciate your position. It's tough sometimes. Do you think the "G" was either left off on purpose, or faded with time.

I've seen Spaulding/Spalding spelled with Spaulden, but not with the "i".

Source is book "The Yaw-Yeaw Family in America". First Edition of this book was 1962 and it was compiled by 3 members of the Yaw-Yeaw Family that had done extensive research on their family lines. At that time the research involved direct communitcations with family members still alive. James Yeaw and I (Carolyn Yeaw) are currently updating this book. We check and recheck all information sent in to us from Yaw-Yeaw family members all over the United States. I truly believe our information is correct.
Thank you.

Francis Symons
I found the answer to my question.
I believe from not finding Francis on the cemetery index, and seeing his death certificate, that Francis was placed in at Vault at Green Lawn until being moved to Vermont for burial. If you can find him buried at the same cemetery as his wife, I would be interested in knowing what you find. I will touch base with Green Lawn Cemetery to see if they have any other information on Francis.

Do you know where the parents or wife were buried?

Added by Patty on Jul 18, 2016 4:26 PM

I am going to decline
're messages you left on my public message board: "Joannah (Marchant) Randal
I am going to decline your edit because I don't link my memorials to people whose burials are unknown.
Janet Muff" Thank you for your message, I am not certain to whom you were referring to as I need a memorial number to reference.

Hi - thank you for the edits. I like to have backup for info I've entered. Would you please let me know where the info came from? If from an obit, would like name and date of paper, census and year, etc. Thanks a bunch. Enjoy your Sunday. Kind Regards, Phyllis

I discovered in a will from her sister Rosetta Ray Sterling the name Egbert O. Finel along with several relations, a virtual gold mine of proof. The story of their fate in the book PLEASANT VALLEY of the history of Elizabethtown is about Mariah Ray, daughter of Daniel Ray and Lydia ?. She married a Harvey Gilbert and then an Oliver Badger. Her grave is already memorialized here:

I will email you the documentation so you have it.

FINEL family

Hello! We talked before about Jabez Warren before, but this time I must know if you have a decided interest in the FINEL family as I see you manage the memorials of Ozro and Edward FINEL. Recently I discovered that Ozro FINEL has a decided tie to my RAY ancestry, which is connected to the WARREN and SUMNER families. Any information is helpful... thanks!!

RE: Three children of John Ray (1802-1868) | North Russell Cemetery; Plot 43
Very interesting; does your husband have an Ancestry DNA profile? If yes, via a search filter of surname "Ray," we can quickly tell if your Rays are mine. That is, if his Mayflower line is not mine - and I have 12 via 8 compact signatories! But if related, should show up. My Ancestry DNA profile has the same handle as this Find-a-Grave account: pkarchs. And to be clear, the Middletown/Tinmouth Rays are descendants of immigrant Daniel Ray of Plymouth/Salem, correct? As for the burial of Orin Linden Ray, the NYG&B copy was hand stitched into a larger volume with many other documents - perhaps a personal presentation copy from William George Ray himself to the NYG&B as many publishers did. I'll re-pull it to see what other info might be there, including later notations by others.

RE: Brookins
Hi Janet, Yes, I do assume that Ithamar is buried beside Judith. But I meant in the written vital records of New Marlborough I didn't find any entry about any Brookins or any Morgans, such as a birth, marriage or death, other than the entry for Cyrus and Lois Brookins. I'll go look again sometime when I have more leisure. Thanks for all your help!

RE: Three children of John Ray (1802-1868) | North Russell Cemetery; Plot 43
Citations forwarded via separate email. As mentioned there, I seek information related to ANY SMITH/RAY marriages, period especially male Smith to female Ray in NY, VT, MA around 1790 or so. In searching for the parents of my 3x gr-grandfather, George Ray Smith (1813-1878, F-A-G No. 62999220), Im banking on his middle name being maternally derived. I'm scouring every RAY and SMITH, et al. text this summer with special focus on the collections of the NYG&B at NYPL and the Rare and Manuscript Collections at Cornell U as they were given a huge cache of church records across New England by a collector of "religious treatises" -- entirely off the genealogical radar. I found my George R. Ray's wife's church membership there entirely by accident, of course. NYS Library, Albany in September.

In your Vermont travels, send any/all SMITH/RAY discoveries my way.

Enjoy VT,

Philip in NYC

RE: Cyrus Brookins
Hi Janet, It is an entry from Births and Deaths, so not marriage. But thought you might like a photo of the original entry. I always try to find the primary sources rather than recapitulations. The children are Reuben and twins, Luther and Calvin. Wish I had found Ithamar and Judith, but nice to see Cyrus and Lois.
