Bio and Links
I began doing a family tree in 2010. I had help from an ancestor who compiled info on our family from his arrival in the US up to 1937. However, the part of the family who stayed in New York has been hard to try to reach or find. I have photographed all of our stones in the Lincoln Township Cemetery and Arvonia cemetery. I am an early retiree due to injuries from my career as a registered nurse and a teacher. Now I have time to do the geneology and take pictures. Hope to find out more about the family who stayed in the East!

Persons requesting photos. I do have back problems so. . . if the weather in Kansas is bad-- as in blinding snowstorms or weather above 105 degrees--at those times, I will not be going out for photos!!:) Hopefully I will have photos on file within a week of receiving the request. Anyone for whom I have taken photos are more than welcome to use these photos on any site which will allow photos that you have not taken. I see no reason for someone to have to re-take a photo. Please feel to use the photos for any of your family work. Cheryl

Thanks for going the extra mile.

Willa J. Allen, married Rev. Lee Harris. Maybe under Allen?

Willa Harris:

Thank you very much for checking for the burial. The obituary states that she is buried in Mapleleaf. I just added it to her burial. I was told by something that probably means Maplewood.

Her mother and father are buried at Maplewood. Rachel and James Allen.

Thanks for trying.

Dear Cheryl,
The photography you did of Eugene's tombstone is just perfect. I am meeting with his niece at the end of the month and will show this to her. Thanks again.

Edith, Warren and Nina
Hi Cheryl,

I found Edith and Warren today and uploaded their pictures. I was hopeful that Nina would be in the area of their graves, but she was not. My husband and I searched all of plot 8 for her without success (there are a lot of overturned headstones on this plot which are unreadable). I see she was only 16 at death. Is it possible she was buried with other siblings or her parents/grandparents? If you have their names and locations in New Forest, let me know and I will go back. Without something to go on, it will be a needle in haystack trying to find her.

Let me know when you have the other names and grave information ready.

RE: NewForest

Send them to me first and let me see if I can find them.

The other cemetery is Forest Hill and it is right next to New Forest. It is much larger, but is much nicer and very well maintained and the records are organized. They don't have an online index like New Forest but they do have a very nice person working there who has put everything on the computer so she doesn't have to manually search any longer. If you have ancestors buried there, you can email her with a list and she will provide you with the burial locations. I am very familiar with that cemetery as I have several relatives there and have taken a lot of photos. If you obtain names and locations, I will get the pictures for you.

The email is

RE: Senoffs and Johnsons
I searched the New Forest list for requested pictures and only found three from you: Emily Johnson, Nina Johnson and Warren Johnson. Is that right?

I then searched the link that I sent you and here is their plot information:
Emily: Plot 8, Lot 1049, Grave 5
Nina: None listed (David Johnson is listed as the parent).
Warren: Plot 8, Lot 1049, Grave 4.

I will search Plot 8 again for you soon. I feel your frustration :(

If there are other graves that are supposed to be on the list, let me know what they are.

RE: Senoff and Johnsons
Hi Cheryl,

I tried to find Waterman and the other Johnsons in Lot 8 without success. The problem with most of New Forest Cemetery is that it is on a very steep hill. It may explain why no one was able to locate the other graves for you sooner. Also, this cemetery suffered a lot of damage several years ago from kids who tipped over what seems like hundreds of headstones making them unreadable. If you can contact the caretaker and get an exact location on the Lot(s) where a particular grave is located, the family name of the person who owned the lot or even the number of graves that a person is buried with on each plot it may be easier than looking for one headstone. I will be happy to try was good exercise for sure!

Here is a link to a listing of some cemeteries in Oneida County that have graves and locations. New Forest is included. It will give you some information. (You may already be familiar with this).
