RE: Mortimer J. Horowitz
Hi Michelle,

I would absolutely love to go back to the cemetery to look for more Druckers. There is nothing I love more than a) a good challenge, b) an excuse to go wander around a cemetery, and c) an excuse to wander around that cemetery in particular. It leaves one a little in awe; you see the names and you know that these were the people who built Ellenville and made it what it was.

So yes, I will go back to look. If I don't find more of your family there, I have some very good ideas about where I might find them. There is another cemetery on the hill directly opposite Ezrath Israel called Anche Tzaydik. I've only been in there once, but I know there are way more interments than the 96 listed on this site.

One last clue you gave me might be important. Does your mom remember where the Overlook Hotel was located? Is she sure it was also in Ellenville? There were several Overlook Hotels not very far away, in Sullivan County, and it would not be unusual at that time for families to have lived in Ellenville and had parents or grandparents who lived "up the road" in Sullivan. If it's possible they were in Sullivan County, I know several cemeteries I could also check here.

Anyway, I'll start at Ezrath Israel and keep an eye out as I travel through other cemeteries. I have already found on several occasions that sometimes family members turn up where and when you least expect it.

Hello Michelle,
My mother is Dorotha Whitworth Theberge, with her father John Whitworth and mother Esther Burns. This site is great, I'll contribute where I can.

RE: Memorial# 103397922
if that is how her name is listed in cemetery records -since there is no photo - it makes sense to assume she was not married. In order for the memorial to be searchable from the main page -- it needs a last name, otherwise you have to know the cemetery to find it.

Lydia Daniels Drake
We have emailed each other in the past, and I thought you might want to see this information.

My records, which may be incorrect, shows that Lydia was living with her youngest daughter, Christina Drake Skinner (indexed as Shinnor) in the 1870 US Census of Leclede, Co., Missouri.

In the obituary for Christina, it states that she was the last survivor of a family of 13 children. I have identified 12 of the 13 children of Jordan and Lydia Daniels Drake they were: John, Sarah, Benjamin, Elizabeth, Jesse, Almira, Anna, William, Lydia, Mahala, Adelia, and Christina.

I do not know when or where Lydia Daniels Drake died and was buried, but she was alive in 1870. Her daughter, Lydia, died before 1867, but she was married to Isaac S. Lewis and they lived in Newman, Douglas County, Illinois so I don't think that she would have been buried in the Onargo Cemetery.
