Henry Bush
I am writing to you to let you correct some info on Henry. Henry is Jacobus brother but they are not twins. In fact Henry was actually born
19 Feb 1761 Marbletown, Ulster County, New York. Baptised 6 Jan 1762. Died 29 Aug 1857 The creator of the head stone got it wrong.

RE: Jacobus Bush
Haha, that might have been me:) My husband calls it my "nerd bucket", someone else had the good idea to travel with grass clippers, gloves, a brush and some flour to put on stones if they're harder to read, and my camera. Some of the older cemeteries are on rough ground, and I stumbled and dropped my camera more than once! Kim

RE: Jacobus Bush
Well, I hope that was Ok that I was there taking photos..I didn't realize that! There were also about 5 stones leaning up against the stump there, which looked like someone had pulled from the ground. Kim

RE: Jacobus Bush
Max, it was just behind the military marker that Starr had photographed and right next to Henry. It looked someone had tried to "tidy up" the cemetery a bit and pull some stones from the ground. Kim

Lorraine Butler
RE: Bathsheba Hathaway Butler
Hi Max.

IF there is a stone, it would have her married name, Bathsheba Butler, or a variation of that (I have seen Bashara and Basheby, and Butter in some records). As I understand it from records at the historic library, she is buried on the farm. I have not found any actual cemetery records, that comes from the records of the farm itself. It appears taht Bathsheba may have been in & out a time or two before she died, then died as a resident there.

Thanks for taking time to look for her.

RE: uh oh on Burlingham
Thanks for the kind words.

Yes, I'm a Cortland County resident. I'm still trying to trace my husband's side. His father was put in an orphanage at a young age, and I have had a problem tracking down my husband's grandfather. We think the family was from Madison county.

RE: Esther Burlingham
Looks like your memorial was put on 1st. When I did photos at that cemetery I tried to avoid adding duplicate memorials of the ones you had done.
She is not a relative. I will see if I can put my photos on your memorial, and then delete mine.

Thanks for linking to the parents, sorry if I had sent you the SAC twice. My email did not work for you, because you might had forgotten the number "1" in the address. Thanks

RE: John Gilbert Wilmot
Thanks for the message. I've actually seen some of his entries in ancestry. I think there are some errors (dates of birth, etc) which do not match up with the records. I have received access to a family tree which was private that shed some light on things. We are most interested in my grandmother, Johanna Wilmot. The only proof of Johanna McCarthy Wilmot's parents would be on her birth certificate and we are in the process of attempting to get it from the New York City Archives. My grandfather, George E. Wilmot is definitely the son of John Gilbert Wilmot. Will let you know as soon as there is more of the Johanna McCarthy proof....thanks again!!

RE: Uncle Henry Zarges' children
Hi Max. I'm a bit confused so I need your help. Camilla Zarges d. 1893. Louise H. Zarges was b. 1917 & d. 1918. I must be misinterpreting your note. Please clarify for me. Thanks. Barbara

RE: Thankful (Remington?) Winchell
Hello Max...

I do not know...I know there are a number of Thankfuls in my line, but, it would take some time to look through the files.
I am swamped with other things right now, plus, my own website which I work on everyday.
If I get a few minutes I will try to find something on this.
Where did you come across my name in regards to this individual?...could you send me the link to it?
Are you a man or woman, btw? Is your full name Maxine?
Layna Jan Wilson,

John Gilbert Wilmot
Hi..I find this very interesting. My sister and I recently have been trying to trace my mother's roots, and discovered that her father was George E. Wilmot (or E. George Wilmot) son of John Gilbert Wilmot. My grandfather, George Wilmot, lived in New York City with my grandmother, Johanna Wilmot (McCarthy). He is not listed on the John Gilbert Wilmot grave stone, as he is buried in New York. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

RE: Weed Cemetery

Hello Max,

It is so nice to hear from you. I am a little distracted by a very sick pet and I haven't been doing much research. But I wanted to ask you a question .... you had mentioned that you G-Grandfather was a fireman - could his employment description have meant a fireman for a rail road? The engineers and those who took care of the engine fuel were often called firemen/fireman. That may be why I can't find him on any lists. The new website you sent me is excellent. I was recently researching the Conklins (which are on my profile) and there are quite a few! Take care!
