WE ARE THE CHOSEN by Della M. Cumming ca 1943.-"In each family we are called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. ...... So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation, to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bone."

Wolcott lineage info?
Would you happen to have any info on the Wolcott-Lee lineage, from Dover & Fishkill, Dutchess, NY. I am specifically looking for Mary Jeanette Lee & William Burton Wolcott. Mary Jeanette Lee's father is Abraham Lee 1805, Dutchess, NY. His father is Jonathan Lee 1774 m. Mary Slocum, Pawling, Dutchess Ny abt 1784. Her father is George Slocum,m. Lucretia Fish.
I can not find any info on Jonathan Lee other than he had 10 children in Fishkill, and there are no records after that about his lineage. We have the Slocum lineage, but are at a dead end for the Lee family.

Thank you,
Dawn Lee Lukas Lee

RE: Bennett O Moen
Uncle Bennet was the live wire in our family. He always told the best jokes, and always had a good word. He worked for Cargill, and was in charge of their sunflower production. They gave him a station wagon with a telephone in it in the late 1960's so he could report from the fields. The picture I posted is his wedding picture. I was told that he was buried in that suit.

I really want to thank you for all you've done to keep track of our burial sites in our family. This heritage will outlast us all and will help our descendants a great deal when they want to research family.

At the end of July we will be driving to Idaho Falls, Idaho. Our nephew, Joe Boyd, is getting married, so it is a great time for family to get together.

One of the best parts of Find-A-Grave is that I've been able to meet you folks.

God bless you with His best and nicest blessings.

Ben Wolcott
They both died from Cholera, they were working at the light house and it was their job to recover bodies from the Lake, at that tome people were dumping dead bodies in the lake to keep them cool but their so many bodies thy had to bring them in to process them. I remember reading about them, I think in one the books on Marblehead Light House, also Merlin Wolcott was direct descendant wrote about them and said his son William is buried in Wolcott Cemetery but no headstone.
Please note I came across court record, Ben was in Norwalk the week before trying change some local laws.

Hope this answers your question.

you are very nice to leave such a nice message - there is a street in Akron with the Ganyard name - near Sand Run Park - probably named for your family.

Isaac Newton Wolcott
Nelson Wolcott, the first of seven children of William and Huldah (Demin) Wolcott, was born January 4, 1806 in Sandisfield, Massachussetts. As a young man, Nelson moved to Griegsville, Livingston County, N.Y. where he took employment for two years as a clerk in the mercantile establishment of his half brother, Isaac Newton Wolcott. In 1828 he entered into a partnership with his brother and took charge of a store in North China, Gennessee County, N.Y. He continued there in business until 1839 when he and N.E. Marston made arrangements with a New York house to open a dry goods store in Buffalo, New York under the name "Wolcott and Marston." The New York house failing, they bargained their goods to a merchant in Indiana and left for Michigan City where Nelson was to take the security offered and deliver the goods. Not finding the security satisfactory, he declined to deliver and the goods were shipped to Geshen, Elkhert County, Indiana where he and Marston continued in business under the charge of Mr Marston until the partnership was dissolved in 1844. Nelson then sold his interest to his partner. In 1847 Mr Wolcott again engaged in the mercantile business in Attica, New York and continued there until 1856 when he moved to Batavia, Illinois.

While Nelson Wolcott resided in China, N.Y., the township was divided and the town of Java was formed. The name of the post office was changed from North China to East Java. Mr Wolcott was postmaster at the time. He also was the first County Clerk of Wyoming county, N.Y. after its formation from a division of Gennessee County. Following his term of office as County Clerk, he was urged by friends to accept a nomination to Member of the Assembly but he declined the offer.

In his early life, Nelson adopted the principles of the Whig Party and became a Republican after the formation of that party. Mr Wolcott said that he was born anti-slavery and on several occasions aided those who were escaping from slavery through the "Underground Railroad."

Nelson Wolcott married Alvina Wright, daughter of Amzi and Huldah (Kellogg) Wright of Middlebury, N.Y., on September 13, 1835. They had eight children: (1) Ellen Huldah, born July 19, 1836, died 1911, (2) Robert Nelson, born April 15,1838, died September 30, 1907, (3) Henry Kirke, born April 19, died February 5, 1932, (4) Laurens Wright, born February 8,1843, died March 19, 1909, (5) Mary Lundie Duncan, born January 3, 1845, died May 23, 1933, (6) Seymour Amzi, born March 8, 1847, (7) William Allen, born April 10, 1849, died April 7,1944,(8) Frank Newton, born December 10, 1852, died 1918,

Nelson Wolcott was a deacon in the Congregational Church of Batavia. He died September 5, 1905, at his home on South Batavia Avenue, following a fall in which he fractured his hip. His sudden death came only four months short of his one hundredth birthday. Deacon Nelson Wolcott is buried in the Batavia West Side Cemetery.
P.S. Isaac Newton Wolcott was our 2nd Great Grand Uncle!

Jennie Wolcott
I made the changes you requested for the Wolcotts and entered the information for Jennie Wolcotts parents. Is her father the Arunah Gage buried in the Marshfield Cemetery? The memorial has a different name for his spouse.
