Inez McCluer

Thought you might want to know you have 2 Find A Grave sites for Inez McCluer. 35682247 in the Sandusky Cemetery and 112607043 in the Farmersville Center Cemetery. At this point I don't know which is correct.

Nancy (Wetherel) Colburn
Hello Laurie,

Will you please send me a source that says Nancy Wetherel Colburn was buried in the Podonque Cemetery because I can find no record of that. In fact, the listing of burials at the Allegany County Historical Society does not include her name among the Colburns.

Thanks very much,

Janet Muff

Hi Laurie, I was wondering if I could have your permission to use a photo you took in my family tree. My hope is that someone else will see it and be able to provide her maiden name. Her memorial # is 106614297. If you allow it I will credit the photo. Thanks for considering :) RC

RE: Catrina Polhemus Duryea
Since I did not include Catrina's siblings I must have been focusing on a different generation. I am not sure now what I was working on at the time. I do have a lot more I can include from the Brouwer database on the extended family. I'll add more starting with Abraham.

The Until the Day Dawn Cemetery:
I want to be sure that you know that there are 2 main web sites for the Until the Day Dawn Cemetery.

The first is the Angelica Collectanea web site,'and I have the book that that came from, published in 1955, Compiled by L. L. Stillwell. The web site doesn't really match the book totally, but notes most of the people who are buried at the Until the Day Dawn Cemetery with many having details as to who they are and what they did, etc.

Then there is the Until the Day Dawn Cemetery web site. It gives some info. the book doesn't have and visa versa. Be sure to study both web sites when you add people into that cemetery, each has something the other lacks.

RE: Information requested.
Hi Laurie,

I'm the Genealogist for Clan Macneil USA, tracing the Scots-American descendants.

I've been assisting a member with his genealogy. He's descended from William Levi Strope's second wife, Rachel Strope, Pearl House being the first wife.

Unfortunately, I have no other input on Pearl, and completely understand what a mess the Strope family proves to be!!
