Dr. Bernard and Elizabeth Haring Oblenis Thank you for the beautiful Find A Grave pages for Dr. Bernard and Elizabeth Haring Oblenis, and for clarifying Elizabeth's parents. There is a slim volume of records from the Clarkstown aka Nanuet True Reformed Church available in Rockland County libraries and there is this listing:
HARING *Elizabeth, wf. of John A. Haring, bapt. three chldrn. Dd June 1870 Elizabeth, b. to John A. Haring and Elizabeth, bapt. Mar. 20, 1832 *John A., hsbd. of Elizabeth, "First Deacon", bapt. three chldrn.; Elizabeth, Jacob, Jane. Dd. Mar. 1849
The asterisks preceding Elizabeth and John indicate that they "originated this church".
The only Oblenis in the records is Gertrude of Clarkstown, who wed John R. Tenlick Aug. 1856.
Nathaniel Putnam Just caught your public msg to Jack P. when posting my own. Nathaniel Putnam Sr. is GRid 59546939, perhaps. (Benjamin4 Jr. was my ancestor, Benjamin3 Sr. being in common with this line.) Best of luck! Barry
RE: Nathaniel Putnam Section C of the cemetery has a lot of transplants. There used to be another Putnam cemetery (GR10) off of Sylvan St - I think I've seen one or two of these Putnams originally listed as buried there in MVR. Of the 171 Putnams in section C, this particular family all have the same interment date - 8/18/1845. We've been seeing that a lot with other Putnams, Tapleys, Trasks and other old names. I know that Nathan Putnam, in Porters/High Street, was moved there in 1920 from that cemetery.
I was back there yesterday and had a closer look at that stone. I am amazed that I got such a clear picture of it. I can mail you a higher resolution copy than is possible to put on Find A Grave if you like.
