PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON ON THE MEMOMORIAL if you have corrections or documented additions. I will add the additions as time permits. I will transfer memorials that are not my direct ancestors or close relatives,if you use the EDIT button and state HOW YOU ARE RELATED.
If you leave a message and want an answer, you MUST have an email address listed on your contributor page.
****If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to maintain the records please transfer your records to someone who has an active account and willing to take over the records. I am one of many willing to take over records. This really will help reduce duplicates. It would also be a good idea to leave someone instructions on how to do make these transfers should you go inactive without warning.***** Thank You (Borrowed from another FAG Contributor)
RE: Mayville Cemetery email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, Sue, and I'll send you the entire Word table (through 2011.) There is a good bet you'll find more unknown relatives in the same lot but you can also "find" names in other lots, too. In the old cemetery, there is almost always some connection amongst the folks in any given lot. In NA (the back), lots were sold as A, B, C, D sides of a square, so not so much. That table is the basis for the CCGS Mayville Cemetery book, btw. The book is easier for carrying around the cemetery but searching on the computer brings up all kinds of connections. I figure there is no point in doing all that work if it's only on my computer! ; )
Mayville Cemetery Hi, Sue I transferred your first Mayville folks and if you have any more in there, just ask. I have only one lot of family members but a big Word table of information about the folks in there (with lot numbers), so if you want that, too, let me know.
Nunns for Port Allegany I had a work order come across my desk for this family and did the family connections according to their info... Apparently Fred raised or help raise his younger siblings.... I am friends with Lannie Nunn and he got me straighten out on a few things and had some pictures I will be posting on Find A Grave.. I will be posting correct family ties once I have Fred and some of the other Nunn's actual parents to Grimes Cemetery.... Apologies on the errors...I have things pretty much figured out I think...
Anna Brown chappel (Lallah) In my earlier messaage, I said that Annie (Lallah) was the sister of Homer, but, of course, she was his daughter. I don't know why Annie later became called Lallah, which she was known as, as an adult. She met and married Edw Roberts in CO, and had 3 children, David (who died at age 6 in 1908, Gertrude (a major in the Nurse Corps in WW II, and who died in 1974) and Edward, who died in Belgium in WW II, probably in the Battle of the Bulge). Lallah died in 1968 at age 91. After his wife, Annie Murray Brown, died in 1877, Homer married Annie's older sister, Polly. They lived in Eaton County, Mich. Homer died in Grand Rapids, Mich in 1905 at age 60. My grandfather, Fred, Homer's older brother, married Eva Clapp and they lived in Otsego, Allegan County, MI.Fred died of infection in 1915 at age 45. They had 6 children, the 4th of whom, Freeman, was my father. I haven't found where Charles and Angeline Chappel died or are buried. What do you know about Lina Brown Haskin, who lived with the Chappels? Jim Brown.
Anna Brown chappel (Lallah) I have some info for you. Annie Brown Chappel Roberts and Lallah Roberts are the same person. Annie(later known as Lallah) was my great aunt, the youngest sister of my great grandfather,l Homer Brown--the brother of your ancestor, Martin Brown. Annie was only 6 months old when her mother, Annie Brown died at age 30 in 1877. She and Homer had 6 children, 4 boys and 2 girls, living on a farm in Eaton County, Mich. Homer couldn't care for all the children, and Annie was adopted by Charles and Angeline Chappel in western NY (I have copies of the adoption papers). Angeline Brown Chappel was a sister of Homer and Martin. After Annie was adopted in 1880, within a few years, both Charles and Angeline, her adoptive parents, died. She went to live with relatives. Annie's oldest sister, Lina, also went to NY to live with the Chappels, I believe, but was not adopted. Charles and Angeline had a son of their own, Jesse John. Annie (Lallah) went to live with him when he got married and moved to Kansas. Jim Brown. More later.
RE: Loueza A. Hamilton You are very welcome. Unfortunately we noticed, after the fact, that you were looking for any other Hamiltons in the cemetery. Loueza's stone is covered in a great deal of lichen but there is a second inscription that will require some work to reveal. If you write us at our email address we can let you know when we have an image of that inscription. ~Cheers
RE: Barton Cemetery Unfortunately, Barton Cemetery no longer exists. It is a disappeared/destroyed cemetery. The stones for Zenas & Marilla Barton and Perry Killburn were read by a historian some 20 years ago. Those stones went missing at some point since then. Most likely there was once more stones there but they slowly disappeared over the decades.
