I started going to cemeteries in geneology searches. As I went thru the cemeteries I realized how much the stones wear down (and all the other factors - cemeteries not being kept up, vandalism, etc) and that someday you wouldn't be able to read those stones.|
I also realized what great things people were doing by taking pics, and volunteering to take pics, for people who were looking for their family and couldn't get to the area.
So...I starting taking pictures myself. Now that we have digital cameras all it costs me is my time. And the results are great...people find family they're looking for and most importantly, those that were buried in the cemetery and the stones were put up for are not forgotten.

Ta for the updated info & really quick response, fastest ever!! hahaha Also many thanks for your time & effort in taking the pics then posting a memorial. By the way, not related, well maybe not related. Had a message from one of her relatives seeking info on the McClure clan of Co. Armagh in my family tree. Thought I'd volunteer the info I just found on this site as well. :-)

Sounds great, I'm interested in Lot G002, Lot owners info, of whose buried there. Abigail Crain Crandall's mother Sibble Crain in particular, could have been removed to Cortland Rural from another cemetery. She died around 1843, living in the west half of Cortlandville. Or she may be one of the stones brought to Cortland Rural. Larry

Thank you very much for the photo of monument....Did you see any marker for other spouse Miranda Boutwell???
Laura's grandfather Ebenezer was at Concord Mass. the first day of the American revolution, he's buried at Chenago
Do you have access to the Cortland Democrat?
Laura's dad Elijah S Boutwell's notice of a probate hearing was published 21 Feb 1890, Mar 7, and 14 Mar 1890, which lists numerous relatives. Its on Oldfulton postcards, but is mainly illegible....
It seems to me a number of early Cortland county residents came from Colrain, Mass. as a part of a religious group...Do you have any info on that?
