Daniel Aldrich
The Daniel I posted never lived in NY, so I doubt he is the father of Merton.

RE: Hello my new friend!
Here is what I have come up with, I hope it helps.
He was in the Peninsula Campaign. In the battle for Malvern Hill, he was wounded in the head and taken prisoner, He was exchanged prior to the battle of Antietam, where he was killed on Sept 17,1862. b. 23 Sept 1834, Sullivan County, NY. His father was Daniel M. and his mother, Catherine Crissey. I have no information as to when he married, but his wife, Mary C. Angell applied for a pension on Apr 7,1882, application # 291,362. His enlistment records list him as single, so don't know when he married. The information comes from the NY Town Clerk's register 1861-1865, and pension records.Ted

RE: My goodness gracious...
About Clausland Cemetery, if I had documented, sadly I can't take credit for that one! Have a nice weekend!

Menton C
You mentioned that Menton died of wounds, but the rosters say he was killed on Sep17,1862, the roster also does not say that his body was removed. But he was an officer, could very well have been sent home or removed later. What kind of marker does he have. If he has a proper burial place, then the memorial I have created for him, then it should be deleted. Ted

Rev John Cornelius
Hello! Thanks so much for your email. There are two Reverend John Cornelius' ... one's middle name was "Wesley" and he was my 2x great-grandfather. I don't think the other one's middle name was Wesley though, the one married to Martha. I would love to see the obituary though, and do appreciate your interest!
Best regards,

RE: Gotta love ya!
I am up to date with all my edits, so if they are not done yet, it's because I didn't receive them.

So awfully sorry! You are quite correct that she is buried in Aurora, which is exactly what I had in my records. I must have had both cemetery pages open at the same time and brain-cramped when I entered her memorial. That has been corrected. Thanks for bring it to my attention.

Kellie Walton
Thank you!
I just wanted to say thank you for all your work and effort on the Haring line. It's been a pleasure to read your detailed memorials. Your pretty mom would have been my tenth cousin, once removed ... so that practically makes us sisters. LOL What an interesting heritage we share!

Take care and thank you again.

Thanks so very much for the kind words. They are really appreciated. I have to put up at times with so many negative remarks that you are a breath of fresh air. I am ALWAYS glad to add anything anyone wants included in a memorial. Please send it along at your convenience.

RE: Whew Whew Whew....
Hey there,

I sent you an email, it didn't bounce back so hopefully I still have the correct email address.

Me too, I am glad when winter to gets to So. FL.

Hello my friend
Looks like you have embraced the spirit of the search. You have been busy my friend.

I have been more busy inside my house than outside. I love walking the cemeteries but the heat of So. FL is not good on my health.

But I hope to get back out and about.

Welcome Back!!
Thank you, thank you! I checked out the one you mentioned and I loaded a birth and a death certificate. That is why it looks like two.
Keep in touch my new f/g friend!! :)

Hello my new friend!
I went ahead and added all the stuff I had to your memorial on Ashby Clinton.
Trust me, I completely understand trying to work on your phone. It can definitely be frustrating.
Thanks for all of your help, and I really enjoyed reading your biography.
Until we meet again, Terry

John Tayloe Corbin
You're welcome! Very glad to help. Genealogy, as you know quite well, can get very confusing! My own family seemed to delight in coming up with new ways to spell the family name... and my wife's early ancestors delighted in naming their children after themselves, and their brothers and sisters did the same with their kids, and of course from child #3 on, the children's names matched those of their aunts, uncles, and cousins. Thank God for the occasional middle name! My wife's tree has so many John Corbins it's mind-boggling.

I read your bio - very touching and inspiring! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Best wishes! Pete

RE: Simply had to take a few moments to give you praise!
Such kind words! You made my day!! Did you find anyone from my memorials that we might be commonly related to? I read your bio, it seems we have a lot in common. I survived cancer in 1994, then a bad accident in 2010 that has left me disabled. We are still here, so I guess we have ancestors to find and their stories to tell..... your memorials are wonderful also!!

RE: Hello there Emily!
Thank you so much for the link. I am returning to Albany in September, so I am on the lookout. I have figured out where Patrick Dillon lived, having found in the New York State Library archives an 1850 map of the wards - he ran a hotel near the waterfront.
