Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are the Dexter Trail Questers. We are a group of ladies interested in history and historical things. We have adopted as our current "project" the logging, verifying and photographing of each gravestone in Fairview Cemetery, Dansville MI. All visible stones in Fairview Cemetery as of July 2013 have been photographed. We are a very cooperative organization so any time a "family member" seeks a memorial they are interested in maintaining but "owned" by DT Quester, please, notify us by using by using the "EDIT TAB ONLY" and we will be happy to transfer ownership. Also, we are looking for family stories of the people buried in Fairview so if there are any out there floating around in cyberspace, please pass them onto us! We have gotten an "historical" designation to the cemetery and had a great dedication ceremony Oct. 3, 2010.

We are now working on getting records and photos for other cemeteries in the Dansville, Williamston, White Oak, and Stockbridge areas.

NOTE: Our organization is now cleaning markers and resetting some "tablet" markers-depending on damage. For more information, please email us.

DO NOT email us for any memorial requests, use edit tab ONLY.

Also please include your FAG membership number.

It provides a link to the memorial, making quick and smooth transactions. Thank you.

RE: Paddock
The cemetery name in this Bible is hard to read concerning the Paddock's. Is there a cemetery near Dansville called Fairfield?

RE: Mary Ann Curtis

Mary Ann's father, Benjamin Curtis died in Marion, Wayne County, NY. I have not located the cemetery yet. I will add his info when I add the bio to Abigail's memorial.

Thank you for all your work, you have entered several of my ancestors.

Josiah Wolcott, my 2nd2n great-granddaughter
The 1870 census shows 'Josiah' [not Joseph], Adelia and son Burtie [Birt]. Birt is my great-grandfather. Josiah has a twin brother, Joseph.

I see that Findagrave says my 2nd Great-Granmother was Cordelia but called Adelia. I have never seen anything about a Cordelia but I would love to see the source of that.

Shortly after Adelia Taylor Wolcott gave birth to Amelia & Adelia (twins) she died. Her husband Josiah, placed the twin girls with his first cousin Martha Wolcott Koch, wife of Bauch Jacob Koch (coach).
There were two sets of birth certificates made up for the girls, one by their father, where he named them "Amelia & Adelia", and one set by their cousin, Martha Wolcott Koch, where she named them "Cora & Nora". They went by Cora Wolcott Koch, and Nora Wolcott Koch.

Nora died young. Cora [1876-1948] married Harry C. Coppernoll [1870-1959].

Thank you for finding out the grave is unmarked. I forwarded the info onto the memorial's owner so they can add a notation.

RE: Adelia Gorsline Bement
Thanks for asking. There was a L. Gorsline, born about 1858 to Richard Asa Gorsline and Hannah (Rouse) Gorsline. He is in the 1860 census in Wheatfield, MI, but not the 1870 census. His name could have been Louis, as that was a popular name in the family.

Thanks for looking for this grave. Sorry the search turned out to be a wild-goose chase.

You guys are doing great work in the local cemeteries.

RE: Daniel Swan

I'll try to find something on Daniel.

I believe the stone does belong to Philinda. The information I found stated she was 32 years and 6 months old at the time of her death.

I'll let you know if I find anymore on Daniel.
