I am sorry that it came down to this as I dislike having to make a little request. Regarding Obits/funeral notices you may find for memorials I maintain at Chestnut Hill Cemetery, Portville, Cattaraugus County, NY. I have access to all the newspapers in the area and I am posting obits. as fast as my little fingers will go. Please don't send me a obit. for one I haven't got to yet, I will get to it soon. If you have a obit. or funeral notice for one of my memorials that is from, other than, Chestnut Hill Cemetery please feel free to send them. Thank You!

re; DeKay
Hello Mark. I am a grandson of Fred B DeKay, and I am sure that the infant Mildred Margaret DeKay , marked with small circular stone with flat bottom, that says Our Baby was infant daughter of Fred B DeKay and Margaret Augusta (Clemons) DeKay. I will check my DeKay Family in America book to find out what relation Elizabeth Jane DeKay was. TY.. Art Nelson

Sarah Jobe
Is this Sarah Hawley (maiden name)? I'm searching for info on my distant relative Sarah Hawley and I noticed you have a NOTE on this site saying she maybe James Jobe's wife? Is there no proof?

Many thanks: Madeline Hawley Alexander

Portville Victory Club:
I would like to thank the members of the Portville Victory Club for the Christmas box that I received December 20th at Midway Islands. I would like to thank each of you personally, but it is impossible.
It sure makes a fellow feel good to know that the people of his home town are thinking of him and I hope that all my buddies received theirs in as good condition as mine.
