Bio and Links
Bio Photo Not long ago genealogical research was limited to retired intellectuals who wrote family histories that were little more than repositories of dates and places. More and more people today are wanting to record the lives and experiences of their parents, grandparents and other ancestors. Books are now being written filled with stories, humor and interesting events as well as family relationships. But these books are not always as widely available as they could be. People continue to put more and more writing on tombstones, but size and cost are the limitations. Personal and family websites are becoming more popular since they provide more room to write, but there are drawbacks, such as when they completely disappear from the net. That is why this website is so popular. It is easy to define family relationships and link between relatives as well as add some rather large biographies. This is why it is of interest to me. I must also give credit to those who untiringly record cemeteries that produce leads that I have followed when nothing else has been available.

Hi Richard, Just purchased the Nov/Dec issue of "Your Genealogy Magazine". Your feature article on Alfred Betts is very well done and I would like to "Thank You" for doing the Portville, NY area "Proud". Appreciate all the work and research!

Hey Richard,

It was better luck than management. Currently on holidays in Montana, and happened to be in Havre the day I noticed your request.

Glad to have been able to help out! ~LRM~

RE: Patty Lou Morris Photo Request
I went back, with map in hand. I found all the people listed being buried there around where she should be located. I took pictures, but there is no marker of any kind for her. I'm sorry. I did try.

RE: Patty Lou Morris Photo Request
I saved you the trouble. It was a nice day and I recalled that records were kept at River-view Cemetery for the Riverside cemetery. They watch over BOTH. I went there and found that Patty Morris is buried in Section K 13 grave 5.

I went to the cemetery to look for her. I spent about an hour or a little more. It is poorly marked BUT I took pictures of a map they had at River-view to locate the correct place. I am sad to report that there is no marker at that location for her. I can return with a photocopy of the map, but I recognize the names i saw in that area and hers was not among them.

Patty Lou Morris Photo Request
I'd be happy to fill your photo request if you could provide a section number and/or plot number. It is quite a large cemetery and that would narrow down my search. I know it pretty well. My mother and grandparents and GREAT grandparents are all buried there and it is not far from me.

You can contact the church for the section number.

Riverside Cemetery, established in 1791, is in the "Old Union" district of Endicott, New York and is owned and operated by The Union Presbyterian Church.

200 E Main St, Endicott, NY 13760
(607) 748-9651

This link contains a "contact us by a note" section if you choose.

RE: Elizabeth Ann (Armstrong) Arhibald
Hi Richard, Sorry for delay as we were on vacation. I am not connected to the family, so I have transferred several memorials to your care. If there are any I missed, please let me know. Please leave the Thank You to Cherie Officer on any memorials which she provided information. Thanks! Mark
