RE: Helen Malina Loomis Gage
Helen Malina Loomis married Alden Sears Gage. After she died in 1846 at the age of 39, he married Lucinda Tuttle. I'll try the County Clerks office to see if I can find any info. Thanks

Helen Malina Loomis Gage
Hi - as another Loomis ancestor, would it be possible to get a good photograph of Helen's grave? I'm working on an application to the Mayflower Descendants' society and really need a good photo of the tombstone.

The Benjamin Farney above is already established and it appears there is a duplicate that you manage. His son Vernon would seem to be correct.

RE: William Elthorp #39231769
Thank you for your reply. Sarah Elthorp is in her daughter's home in 1880 and is mentioned in her husband's biography (published 1896) that she is 85 and living in Forestport. She clung throughout her life to the fiction of 1812, the year of her baptism, as the year of her birth.
I expect she is buried in Beechwood.

William Elthorp #39231769
I see the photo of the obelisk for William and another side of it for his son, John #39231768. I am wondering if another side is a memorial to his wife Sarah (Burt)(Aston) Elthorp (1804-1896?). In a biography found online, William and Sarah are mentioned though her birth year is wrong. I have found her baptism record in Warwick, Warwickshire, England of 1812 that states she was born in December 1804.
This past week I have found their entry into New York harbor aboard the LONDON that sailed from London, England and arrived 18 September 1848. Next to their names follows James Smith, Hannah Smith and Selina Smith (a younger sister and her family). These are my ancestors. James used his passport he used when working on the railroad in France. Raised by the Smith family, he did not know until he was married that he was born a Lee. James and Hannah (Burt) Lee moved from Forestport, New York to Poygan, Winnebago County, Wisconsin in 1853. Lees still live on the homestead they created there.
William Elthorp also worked on the railroad in England and France according to his online bio, and that was how James Smith / Lee met his future wife, Hannah Burt.
If Sarah Elthorp does appear on this obelisk, I would like to know the inscription if you have it. Thank you for your help in this matter.
Best regards,
Gene Hill

RE: Re: memorial #42322428
I've transcribed the best I could the blurry obit for Wm. B. Light. If you have anything to change or add least let me know before I request it be added to the bio section of the memorial.
Death of Wm. B. Light
The Well Known Prisler and Secretary of the County Lodge of Good Templars passed away after a brief illness.
The death of Wm. B. Light, the veteran prisler occurred at 11:45 Saturday night, from apoplexy after a short illness. Friday he sustained an apopletic stroke and although everything possible was done for him all was in vain.
The deceased was a native of North New Berlin, where he was born June 12, 1830. He was a pupil of Rev. Dr. M. F. Dunbar, working in a printing office in summer. On the completion of his apprenticeship he came to Utica. He was employed Opal, edited by Dr. ? , of the State ? and printed by William B. Brill. He afterwards worked on the Evening ? , Central New York Farmer, The ? Patriot, the Bee and later the Observer. Returning to Otsego County he remained 8 years, coming back to Utica in 1870 as a compatriot on the Herald. He left that journal to work on the Watchword and the on the Living Issue. Since the last manned office was removed to Lincoln, Neb, Mr Light has worked in local job offices. As a member of the Typographical Union Mr. Light was well known to the craft.
Mr. Light was very prominent in temperance circles, having been from early youth an active worker. He held positions of honor in ? , the ? and Good Templars, was a delegate to the convention in Rochester, New York, Thousand Islands, Saratoga and other places, and since 1875 up to the time of his death was Secretary of the County Lodge I O G T. The members of Oak Lodge meet at the house of Mrs. M. L. More, 81 Cooper Street, to arrange for the funeral, which occurs at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow, and from the Church of the Reconciliation at 2 p. m.
Mr Light was married twice, his first wife, a Miss Lucinda C. Hoag, dying in 1871, having two sons, Olin N. Light of Utica and Will A. Light, the well known North Wood Guide. His second wife was a Miss Hannah Trumble who survives him with one daughter, Mrs. Myrtle G Dufo, of Utica.
