RE: LynnFamilyInHornell
...often up in the night to get the better Internet access exchange, but skipped it last the cats always want attention in the midnight hours when they know a human is shuffling around ~ :)

Don't feel off guard about the Lynn daughters as they were both deceased before Lucy...both before the 1910 census. Actually seemed to have died kinda close together ~ wonder if some epidemic was going around 1905-1910, which was before the flu/pneumonia hit...ghzeesh, I've seen articles listing all who died in a week...sometimes most all of a single family.

Sure wish Hornell (I only found by accident that the Hornells who founded Hornell are also in Hope Cemetery) had better old papers online; I got quite spoiled by CattCo having lots for research of deaths & burials.

RE: LynnFamilyInHornell
Kathy ~ look at the close picture of Alvin & Joh/John's marker on this page:

That's what I was seeing about the gap between Joh & Alva that looks like there should be an "N" on the end of "JOHN," but is missing.

We live in the deep country, and the rain has apparently done something with our satellite Internet connection for the last couple day as it's been quite horrible, but I usually can do online research snappily...kept my mind off other things while my husband was off in war zones from about 2003-2010 and I saw him only about one year total out of of 7. So I usually would be quick to help, and will look for anything on these Lynns when I can, but these little guys (Alvin & John) were only babes and not included in any census so very hard to find out for sure. In the 1910 census, Lucy reported that she'd had five children, but only one was still living...this would've been Guy who lived until 1938.

In 1900 when this same question was asked about live births and subsequent deaths, someone besides Lucy must've answered for her as the answer was 3 out of 3 where living...she was already in her 60s so did not have more births ten years later. In 1900 she was living with her daughter Minnie (Hunt?...can't read the name very well...wife of Charles). In 1905 NY census, she was in the household of Charles & Ella Potter.

Trees that list the Lynns on include children Hattie Ella who married Charles Potter, Guy Edward (buried by them with wife Amelia), and Minnie who married Charles Hunt...then there were the two little boys Alvin & Joh/n so that would make five children all together.

Hi, Kathy ~ RE:>>
I would be interested in anything you can find in the cemetery. I didn't have Alonzo's wife's maiden name, which you have added. From my research, Alonzo and Lucy had 5 children, not listed here in order of their birth: Alvin, born 26 Nov 1866, died 26 Dec 1866, should be in Rural Cemetery; Joh Alva, born 21 Jul 1873, died 21 Apr 1875, should be in Rural Cemetery. Daughter Hattie (Harriet?), born in Dec 1863, have no death info for her, but her husband Charles K Potter, born 1864, died 1952, is supposed to be in Rural Cemetery, as are her two sons, John K Potter, born Feb 1888, died Apr 1903; and Edward LeRoy Potter, born 28 Feb 1890, died 2 Mar 1932. I've found nothing to indicate that either of the boys married. Daughter Minnie B was born in Sep 1871 and her husband Charles W Hunt in Aug 1869 - have no further info on either of them. And son Guy Edward, born 1868, died Jun 1938 and wife Amelia D, born 1866, died Dec 1955, both, as you have confirmed, in Rural Cemetery. They had a daughter Helen J born about 1898. Again, I have no further info on her.<<

Lucy's maiden name was listed on, and I have no independent confirmation of same. Guy, Alvin, and "Joh" (I really think his name was John as there is a gap between "Joh" and "Alva" on the marker, and there were LOTS of mistakes back then) Lynn are all in that same plot with parents. I'm not familiar with the family so know nothing about the children/daughters. I might be able to look around if my Internet ever cooperates again ~ :) ~ sorry.

Stephen Seeley #83456710
Hello, Kathy. I honestly don't know if we are cousins. There are so many Stephens, Nathaniels and Hirams that it's hard to sort out. I almost feel like I have to take other people's word for a connection and I don't believe that is how genealogy should be accomplished. My grandmother was Rosetta (Seeley) Eldred. Her father was Willard Ryland Seeley (his death cert has his middle name of Rowland). His parents were Hiram & Eunice (Prentice) Seeley. If you want me to go back further, please contact me privately. I do hope we are related. Thank you again for posting Stephen's memorial and for all the work you do on Find A Grave.

RE: Osgood edits

The Osgoods are not directly related to me. Watson Osgood (1821-1875) had a daughter, Flora, who married Charles B Spencer who is very likely a cousin of mine although I can't yet find the documentary evidence to confirm this. Flora and Charles had a daughter, Donna, who was raised by Flora's sisters, Norma and Charlotte; all three are buried in the Sleepy Hollow, NY cemetery.

Thanks Kathy

The relationship is very distant (8th or 9th cousins) so please wait to transfer them to someone much closer. I just happened across the information and thought that what I found might help someone else.

Kathy, I am going alphabetically! (think its going to take a while!!) The book i have goes to the J's. But the good news is I am at the library frequently, hanging in the PCGS room getting obits and such and I will look in the second book for mountain view and see what i can find! I will probably go this weekend. If i cant figure it out, i will ask another member of the Park County Genealogy Society to help.

RE: Bridget Daley
Thanks you, Kathy! I work on ancestry VERY late at night. And I check everything, this looked like a total match to me. Then I saw that date and freaked after I sent you that note. OMG!!! Anyway, My Bridget Daley involved a Roantree surname. And you're right I have Mary Elizabeth Roantree and Elizabeth goes on and on.
Best wishes,

Hi Kathy,

I'm glad I could help. I've been working on Pleasant Valley Cemetery on and off for a couple of years now. It's such a nice little church cemetery and I like the drive out to it.

Have a great week!

The Howell(s) at Webster Rural Cemetery
Good evening, Kathy-

I tried emailing the only email address I could find at Webster Rural Cemetery but it bounced back. I will try calling them in the next few days but it has been my experience that they are not too swift on responding.

In any case, I totally agree with you. As is my custom, I researched him and found exactly the same information including his Find A Grave memorial in Wilson, NY. In addition to the memorial, the obituary included in it plus the marriage record I found for him and Marjorie where they were married in Wilson, NY were convincing enough to me. If you don't already have it, it's listed in the New York, County Marriages, 1847-1849; 1907-1936 . They were married on September 6, 1924.

I have already referred to the other Find A Grave memorial as the one I believe is correct. I will await information from Webster Rural Cemetery to see what they have to say. If they confirm that he was not buried here, I will leave the memorial on the website so that others don't add it again or send in more photo requests for his grave photo in that cemetery. However, as I have already done, I will leave the other Find A Grave information on the website to redirect people to the true location.


P.S. And, you're welcome for the photos. At least Margaret and Abraham actually had a marker to photograph. All of this makes me question whether or not Joseph is actually buried there. I was able to find a death notice for Burton that confirms he was buried in Webster (his memorial service was at the Chapel on site - I submitted this to Cheryl Ayres, creator of the memorial) but I question Joseph. There don't seem to be any records for him, so, who knows? Do you?
