RE: Rev Joseph Cope
Glad you liked the pictures. There's a fancy iron railing around the plot.
The grandchildren and I went there yesterday after I picked them up from the babysitter's.
Are you related to Rev. Cope?
You may find more information about the family on the easily searchable Northern New York Library website - - Historic Newspapers

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.

RE: Nehemiah Hoskins
Hi Ann,

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,

Nehemiah Hoskins
Hi Ann,

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.

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.
