|Jane K||Missing Decatur Relatives|
I am searching for the graves of Nahum B. Thompson and his sons. Both of his sons obits say they are to be buried in the family plot in Decatur. Nahum was a prosperous man, once a member of the NYS Assembly. His first 2 wives are at Decatur Center but not Nahum. I wonder if there is an abandoned cemetery on the family farm? Looking at the Beers Atlas of 1868, you can see Thompson Corners just north of the village of Decatur at the Y in school district #1. No house stands there today and the area is completely overgrown. Others who might be interred there are:
Nahum B. Thompson: 22 March 1797 - 8 November 1876
Julius R. Thompson: 1830-20 August 1890
Nahum B. Thompson Jr. June 1837 -29 December 1915
Since you live nearby, you might be aware of this plot or you might like to go exploring someday! If you find anything, I would be very grateful to know about it.

I just visited the grave on the internet of my dad, Clad Cargin in East Meredith NY. Thank you for taking the time to post a picture of his grave on line.
Most of the family lives in Iowa now.

|Deborah Sweet||East Meredith Cemetery, James and Ann Connor|
Hi! I'd like to request a change to the information you have posted for James W. Connor (1868-1939) and Ann J. Connor (1860-1932), both buried in East Meredith Cemetery, Delaware Co., NY.
You have them linked as Husband and Wife, but this is WRONG! They were, in fact, UNMARRIED (both of them), and Brother and Sister, who just happened to have shared a home for decades (very common especially back then, for unmarried siblings).
Both died in Otego, Otsego Co., NY, where they had been living since at least the 1925 census.
You might also want to know that they were both children of James Connor and Sarah Jane (Wright), who are also buried in this cemetery. Sarah Jane Wright is a member of my Wright family. I descend from one of her brothers.
I am sorry, the correct Memorial is # 106815903
|Glendale Chamberlain||Elisha Chamberlain Dates calculation|
The Birth year/date on the Memorial# 106815819 for Elisha Chamberlain is incorrect.
He was born on Dec. 25, 1793 (not 1794) in Otsego County, New York and he died on Jun. 18, 1865, at the age of 71 years, 5 M. & 24 D. as inscribed on his stone marker.
Elisha is my 2nd great grandfather and I'd like to link him to my great grandfather once the date is correct.
Thank you for your kind consideration.
