managing a site Stephen, you have done a wonderful job setting up this information. However, when I sent the addition of the youngest daugther, Edna to you for Crayton and Laura Smith Pottenger, that has not been included previously, I would really like you to add her.
Tom Pottenger had asked if I wanted to manage my Mother, Florence's info and I declined because I do not know how to do those family additions. I have only added the deaths of the babies to the Hesper Cemetery but I do not know how to add the other stuff.
Thank you for suggesting that I manage it but at this time I would prefer not to. Thank you for all you have done to set it all up.
I have a question. The markers are on the same grave (one at the head & one at the foot). Are Bolger & Bulger the same person? The death dates are different. (This is for research & needs to be correct for me to use. Thanks.
Thacher I was at Hope Cemetery in Hornell today and found Lydia Thacher's stone. Is this the only Thacher that you wanted because there are multiple Thachers (I did take all pictures)? If you would want them I could email them and you could decide. There is a hamlet here named Thacherville!
James Place stone Hi Stephen, Was in Munyan cemetery searching, among others, for the stone of James Place. While it is not a large cemetery, it is quite old, and as such many of the stones at this point are very hard to read. I was only able to find one "Place" stone. That of Cyrus Windsor Place and family. No James among them. Do you perhaps have a little more info on him, such as a spouse. Is it possible that he is buried in another's plot, maybe along with a spouse and her family? I live just down the road from the cemetery, so it is not a problem to go back and look again. Best, Tom
Minerva Place (FAG # 92834181) Mention was made last week of the death of Mrs. Place, which occurred at her home in the north end of the village on Monday evening June 2d. Mrs. Place was our oldest inhabitant and had retained her health and faculties in a remarkable manner up to her last sickness, which dated from about the first of the present year. She was born in the town of McDonough, this county, in 1820, and was the daughter of Friend Hayes. She had reached the age of 93 years, 3 months, and 3 days. All the mighty strides that marked a new era in the world’s history, in discoveries, inventions and achievements in every branch of human progress that differentiated the 19th century from all that went before it, was spanned by her single life. She was married to Foster C. Place on January 19, 1843 and most of her life since was spent on the farm where she died. During all these years, in themselves an ordinary life time, she exemplified the merits of a nature essentially home loving and domestic in its tastes and aspirations, enjoying the esteem of three generations and preserving her interest in passing events and the dram of life going on around her until the last. Deceased leaves surviving her one son and two daughters, H.F Place of this village and Misses Vinnie and Emma Place who resided with their mother and made her declining years the ideal transition from a long life of activity to its close in age and infirmity, that is one of the fine things to which too much honor cannot be shown. One son, Leander C. Place, died in 1898. The funeral was held from the house on Thursday at 1:30 pm, Rev. E.B. Singer of the Methodist Church, of which Mrs. Place was a life long member, officiating. Choosing for the base of his remarks the 16th verse of the 91st Psalm, “With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.” There were many fine floral contributions and a large attendance of relatives and friends. Burial was in Evergreen Cemetery White Store by the side of her husband who died in 1886.
