Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in the Ithaca area. Most of my family and several generations were from Cayuga County, New York. I do enjoy walking the cemeteries and taking photos of the headstones. When I walk a cemetery where my relatives are buried and see the other headstones, I can only wonder if they knew my ancestors. Perhaps they held their hand during a difficult time or bought them chicken soup when they were ill - I can only imagine. I know where I am going to be buried I knew people who are buried there and I know people who will be buried there. I will be among family and friends and we have shared memories and time together. Did my ancestors too? Too soon people are forgotten and what a wonderful way to memorialize them and share their lives.

Uriah Knapp
How did you know Uriah Knapp is buried at West Genoa Cemetery, and even the lot number? Do you have the cemetery records, or did you find this somewhere and add it, or something else? I believe he is an ancestor of mine, but want to find out what his dates are to be sure.

RE: Ella May Burns
Yeah. Her death certificate says her parents names were Mary Hatch and Robert Burns, but didn't have any viable leads. Her death certificate says she was born in New Woodstock. Ella was born in 1883 and there was a fire that destroyed the 1890 census records. One of the later census records for Ella says her father was born at sea, which is interesting. That's all the info I have though. I've looked for a birth certificate for Ella, but I'm told there likely wasn't one.

Ella May Burns
I saw you took a photo of (Ella May Burns) Dann's headstone. On her death certificate it lists her parents as Robert Burns and Mary Hatch. Do you have any info on them by any chance?

I have a list of the children of William Bradley and Tabitha Hamlin from Tabitha's family bible if you would like to add that to the findagrave listing

is your Cornell email still the same?

RE: Minnie S Cornell Walker

I obtained the obituary for Minnie S Cornell Walker, as I suspected, she did not die in Los Angles as indicated in your memorial, whoever sent you that information was incorrect. Also, I believe her birth is incorrect, in the 1900 US Census, it states that she was born in July 1874, not September 28, 1874.

let me know how you want to proceed from here

Minnie S Cornell Walker
Hi Cheryl,

I found Find A Grave memorial #104994133 for Minnie S Cornell Walker. My question is how sure are you of her death date and place. It seems Los Angles would not be logical for her death, when her husband Warren died in Cayuga County, New York

I would appreciate clarification.
