Oscar Swenson Hello! well, reaching out just as a matter of curiosity. My Grandfather, Egerton Cameron Brown (AKA Brownie - Find A Grave Memorial# 120547427) who died in 1967 lived in Brooklyn. As a child, I spent many a summer there with my grandparents.
He often mentioned his best friend, Oscar Swenson also of Brooklyn, who died the same year I was born - 1954.
I was just poking around today and the name popped into my head. Having found his gravestone, just thought I would drop you a note to say hello! Perhaps our ancestors were close friends?
Jane Pettit, Presbyterian Freeport Your record of Jane Pettit 42455067, wife of Lewis Pettit and died 1890, is a duplicate of 23549773, which has the same Jane Pettit, wife of Lewis Pettit died 1890, buried in Rockville Cemetery instead, and she does appear on the Rockville cemetery listing that was made by LDS in the 1950s, so I suggest that you delete your duplicate memorial.
RE: Mary Cornelius Hello Peggy, Unfortunately I never received any messages from you in regard to this page. I don't know why. I save all correspondence, I checked and there were none from you. I only found it today because i was doing some research on this line. I have Corrected Mary and will happily transfer to you and deleted Phebe so that yours only will show up. Mac
RE: Cornwell Thanks for the transfer. For all of them I put down what I could find from John Cornell's Genealogy of the Cornell Family, from John Sylavnus Haight's Adventures for God, A history of St George's Church in Hempstead, and from some other written and oral sources, including what my father knew about his great-great-great grandfather (Abram Cornwell 1805-1883), one of the children of Moses Cornwell (1780-1831).
RE: Allen family Just curious! Robert and William Allen are my great Grand Uncles! I'm a grandson of Grace Emma Allen. Hamilton Allen 1780-1830 is their brother. Hamilton is my 4th great grandfather. That's my lineage. I'm always curious to find distant relatives that my have some photo's I'm searching for. Most importantly, My 3rd Great Grandfather is Hamilton Allen 1822-1869. He was one of the last Chief Engineers of the E.D. Williamsburg, Brooklyn! I'm a career firefighter who is on a mission to find someone with a photo or rendering of him!
Yes many of my distant cousins in the Allen Family do live in New Jersey too! I grew up on L.I.
Thank you for your response. Have wonderful New Year!
There are some links that can be added to this group, and I will be glad to do that. I was going to ask what your source was when I saw there were no photos of the gravestones and was hoping that maybe you had found records at the cemetery office. Do you have any idea if stones exist for these Cornells?
Prentiss Glazier left a manuscript in 1975 of updates and corrections to the 1902 "Genealogy of the Cornell Family," and I noticed yesterday that he cited NYGBR53 as having some information about the burials of this family. Luckily for me, the Long Island History website has apparently transcribed that article and posted it on their site. They give its date but not the volume number, but I feel pretty certain this is the article Mr. Glazier references. Of course, "NYGBR53" covers four quarterly issues of the magazine in a specific year, and one would need to consult the index to find the correct issue and page number. Is this perhaps where you got your data?
