|Ben G||Evergreen Cemetery, Portland Maine|
I see your requests for this cemetery, but is under about 2 feet of snow now. I expect to get to all requests in April. Don't give up!

|CC-Genealogy||re: lost cemeteries of Tioga Co, NY|
I think you can determine where those 'lost' cemeteries may have been if you were to obtain a map from about 1920 or so, and then look up the descriptions given by the Beulah Patterson Brown chapter of the DAR. I tried locating some that were close to Nichols via Satellite photo and current map, but some of the roads have changed too much for someone who has never lived in the area to know which name applies to which road.
I also know that my Johnson ancestors lived in Bradford County PA just south of Osborn Hill where their family cemetery probably once stood. They are all now located at the Nichols Cemetery.

Though I have not visited Nichols Cemetery myself,I have several direct relatives buried here and throughout lower Tioga County. I am told that along with the burials that were first made at Nichols, there are also several small cemeteries and burial sites that once resided in the surrounding countryside that were consolidated into Nichols Cemetery in the most efficient manner as possible. I am seeking further information, but it is my impression that the headstones were quite often placed back to back. Though family groups and cemetery groups were mostly kept together in one or two rows, the very next row could be an entirely different group, or even a single individual.
My local contact who was at Nichols Cemetery today (but who did not have your question) said that there probably would have been too much snow ensure an identification for that small stone lying on the ground. I will seek further information from another FindAGraver and see if she can determine from her records who is buried there.
My best to you.

Thank you for your SAC regarding Amelia's place of birth. I will meet you part way on this and add a note to Amelia's bio where I define more about her place of birth. Obviously without a birth certificate (and sometimes even when one is available), we are dealing with variables of accuracy.

Thank You, but my cousin Barry Hinman deserves much of the credit for that information.
|Denise Haviland||RE: Haviland|
Hi Don't know if I ever answered your question about me being a relation of the NYS Westchester county Quaker Havilands. In fact I am. According to the Frost Haviland book my 4X G grandfather was Wm of Dutchess Co.-who ended up in Albany county. His son was Charles who ended up in Greene County. I think Wm. was a grandson of Jacob(son of the original Wm). Wm's father has not been proved-I think he was the Wm who fought in the F&I War and was awarded land in what eventually became Dutchess county. Still trying to figure all that out! DH

I made the correction. Thanks. Guess I was thinking of our relation, Henning.
