It looks like you've been in touch with Gene and have the information you need. Best of luck in your searches.
|Gene ||RE: Nehemiah Hoskins #74057808|
Both Nehemiah Hoskins and his son Lt. Nehemiah Hoskins are buried in the Willis cemetery (Furnace Cemetery), near the north entrance.
There are no Hoskins buried in the Tufts Cemetery (Hawkins Cemetery).... also called the "Ashuelot Cemetery" on a few web sites. That cemetery was established in 1819, many years after the Hoskins family left town.
Stephen L. Hoskins, son of Mr. Lovd and Mrs. Abigail Hoskins. Died Feb 10, 1803, age 3 weeks
Miss Almira Hoskins, dau of Lt. Nehemiah and Mrs. Abigail Hoskins died Feb 19, 1802 age 14 years.
(no name given) Here lies buried dau of Lt. Nehemiah and Mrs. Abigail died March 4, 1787, age 4 days.
Here lies buried Lt. Nehemiah Hoskins died July 6, 1792 in the 49 year of his gage.
Here lies buried Mr. Nehemiah Hoskins who died Jan 4, 1789 in the 80 year of his age in the 80 year of his age.
If you have any further questions, please let me know. Both cemeteries are located within five minutes of my family homestead.

Lt. Nehemiah Hoskins is being recognized by the DAR for his service during the Revolution. I have no evidence that his father, Nehemiah Hoskins (Sr.) was in the Revolution.
The Hoskins family came to town and purchased 58 acres in September of 1780, on what is now known as "Burt Hill" Over the next few years they purchased another 100+ acres adjoining the first lot. In a June 1784 deed, Nehemiah Jr. was listed as a "housewright."
After Nehemiah and Nehemiah Jr. died, the family sold the farm to Joseph Burt Jr. (hence the name "Burt Hill.")
Pasted below is the deed entry for the farm being sold.
Vol. 42-Page 423 Lovd Hoskins, Tisdale Hoskins, Abigail Hoskins, Ruthy Howard, Amasa Houghton, Polly Houghton, Philip Howard, Abigail Hoskins 2nd and Samuel Hoskins to Joseph Burt Jr. (23 November 1803) $1500.00 the Hoskins farm.
The only entries that I have are at the Willis (Furnace) Cemetery:
Nehemiah, d. Jan 4, 1789
Lt. Nehemiah d. July 5, 1792
Almira Feb 19, 1802
Infant Hoskins March 4, 17 87
Stephen L. Hoskins Feb 10, 1803.
Hope this helps,

Yes, Nehemiah and his family are buried at the oldest cemetery in Ashuelot. It was originally known as the "Furnace Cemetery" but in later years it became known as the "Willis" Cemetery as it adjoined the Osmer Willis farm.
I urged our local DAR chapter to honor Lt. Hoskins and Jonathan Jenks, who are buried near each other. Upon confirming their service to the colonial cause, they will be having a ceremony in September, placing DAR markers on their graves.
As a local historian, I have been asked to say a few appropriate words on both Jenks and Hoskins. If you have any info. to share in regards to Nehemiah, I would appreciate it.

This is all stuff you may do be clicking the edit button and submit the information.

thanks for the info
|Art Currie||RE: 121177336 Elizabeth Knisley Sherk|
Yes, her parents were Anna Stoner & Christian Knisley, with Anna Stoner being a sister of Christian Stoner. We know that for sure from a letter written by Christian Stoner in the early 1800's where he refers to Christian Knisley as his brother-in-law.
Beyond that going back in time my information was obtained from a researcher that I hired in Lancaster to see if he could find out who Christian Stoner's parents were. Through his reaearch, he was unable to definitively find Christian's parents, however through other documents he found Christian Stoner's grandparents. They were Henry Stover/Stauffer & Catharine Eliza Ramsburg.
Where the name morphed into Stoner from Stover/Stauffer, I really don't know. Christian Stoner & his sister, Anna, could have been born Stover/Stauffer and changed it to Stoner before they left Pennsylvania, or possibly the name was changed to Stoner a generation earlier - I really have no idea.
Catherine Stoner Letson could very well be related to Christian & his sister, Anna. The only thing that I am sure of is that she is not a daughter of Christian Stoner & Elizabeth Neff. Given her age, could she possibly be a sister? I only have Christian Stoner & his sister Anna in that family and, given the time period, it is very unlikely that there were only two children in the family.
|Janice (O'Bryan) Byington||RE: John Vidito|
I spent 6 months helping my friend, Bob Videto, with his family research, so sorry, but I'm not really that informed on the family origins. I transferred all of the memorials to Bob when I finished. He has not been able to really do much lately because of his wife's recent health problems. Sorry again that I couldn't help.
|Mike Cronk||RE: Cronk family #68091999|
First, let me touch on 'Rogers'. Linden Herbert Rogers was the second husband of my cousin, Mary A. Eardly. When I do genealogical research, I not only want to know the name of the spouse, but the spouse's parents...particularly, if the spouse is a woman. I want to make sure I have a known and correctly spelled surname. With Linden, I would not be interested beyond his parents. If they are buried locally, I would be interested in looking up their obituaries and photographing their graves. Going further back than that would be outside the pale of my personal interest...but I would be very happy to share Michigan and local resources with you, to help facilitate your own research.
Now, onto James & Mary (Fargo) Cronk. I had no previous knowledge of these two individuals. The Cronk-Cronkite-Cronkhite clan has been in this country since 1641. After the American Revolution, the Tory members of the Cronk family went to Canada as 'United Empire Loyalists'. Many of their descendants have been filtering back into the States ever since. The Cronk-Cronkite-Cronkhite family is very convoluted and when it stretches back into Colonial Dutch period, with its Dutch records, frankly, I'm lost.
Two of our more illustrious Cronk-Cronkite-Cronkhite family members are:
Hiram Cronk - Last surviving veteran of the War of 1812.
Walter Cronkite - American Broadcast Journalist
When you mentioned that Mary (Fargo) Cronk died in 1914 in Middleville, Barry Co., Ontario, I thought to myself, "That doesn't sound quite right." I had that thought because about 20 miles from me is Middleville, Barry Co., Michigan. So, I did a little poking around. I found Mary's 1914 Death Certificate on Seeking Michigan...digital copies of 1897-1920 Michigan Death Records (FREE).
As you can see, Mary did marry again, because she died as a 'Paull'. It also states she was 'single' so I wonder if she divorced 'Paull' or 'Paul'.
Mary appears to be buried in Mount Hope Cemetery in Middleville, Michigan.
That's all for now... If you have some very specific questions about who or what you want to find, that would be helpful.
