Still headhunting. Was in an old cemetery out in the woods, here in Putnam Co. very near the Dutchess Co border. Saw a head stone:

John Peter Lockwood
died 1908 age 70 years
Esther Mead his wife

Same place Anna Lockwood died may 3 1909

Any of these yours??

Mead Cemetery now called the Mead/Russell cemetery.
Very sad place. Straight rows of just upright rocks marking burial places, this area at one time was known as Nelsonville,NY. It no longer exist as that. Happy Headhunting

Kidney at Fantinekill
I made the correction as soon as I saw your note. Thank you for pointing that out. I will look into the records we have and see what I can find at the Library.

Jesse Kidney's grave stone photo

Dear LS,

Thank you for the message about sharing info on the Fantinekill Cemetery. Would you happen to know who has the records for the cemetery? If my Robert was there, there would probably be no stone. He died approx 1871-1875 and left no one behind, except children in the Poughkeepsie Orphange, that would have paid for a stone. I really think my Robert is on this east side of the Hudson, in one of the Pleasant Valley/Salt Pond cemeteries. But again I'd need to find out which ones to research and who has the records. I do plan on taking a ride to Fantinekill one of these days.
I am writing you to let you know, I believe you uploaded the photo of the grave stone of Jesse Kidney to the wrong Jesse Kidney listed on the site. You actually put Jesse Kidney senior(the father)of Civil War fame/era, who died in 1891 on the son's page. He is also named Jesse Kidney (Jr.) but who was born in 1871 and didn't die till 1949. Ooops

Not doing a very good job with this computer. Sorry for the blank messages.
Could you give me the names of your James and John wives if you have them and any approx. date(ie year,abt.)of marriage? I lined up all the names I have and I can see one or two places that the relationship of your Jesse and My Robert may fit in. Somewhere along the line they were second or third cousins. Most of the contacts I've had are relying on the 1860 census when they tell me they probably weren't related. But it goes back much further than that. And they really don't have any real interest to pursue it. I always think.. Why would three boys, with the same last name,all the same age group, all join up at the same time, in the same place, with the same regiment if they didn't have some kind of relationship to one another?
This is getting interesting.
Do you have a
1. John Kidney married to a Nancy Ellsworth who are the parents to : Next generation; John Kidney who marries Jane Waddle
2 Jacobus James Kidney to a Sara Dubois. From these two I don't have the names of children ect.
Jacobus James K. is brother to my John in # 1.
There would be probably two more generation listings after James before your Jesse(C.war)

If you prefer, please feel free to use my Email address. Either way great to hear from you.

Oh, by the way, my family was not from Ellenville originally. It was by some fate that my parents lived there when I was born. My Grt Grandfather by then, by clerical error somewhere the name had been changed to Kenney. I think in the late 1800's when he got married as the family story goes,the clerk incorrectly wrote the name down and my grtgrandfather just left it, liking the way it sounded. But each generation always thought the correct name was originally Kidney. Through my research I just proved it was. Always great to hear from anyone that can shed light with info

Kidney, Willet un. death date
Willet died 1871. Did not live long after the Civil War. He is brother to the Jesse Kidney (Sr) on the grave site listing. Jesse himself is quite famous with the Civil War buffs, having spent 17 months as a prisoner of war. Captured at Gettysburg 7/3/1863. Some of the imprisonment being spent at the notorious Andersonville Prison. Willet and Jesse were in the same unit together 80th infantry. Co A. My GrtGrtGrandfather Robert Kidney was in the same unit, but was discharged after the battle of Antietam Sept 1862. He reenlisted in another unit Jan 1864. I came upon your listing while researching my Robert Kidney.He's somehow a distant cousin to Jesse and Willet. Grandfathers are brothers or something. I haven't pursued that angle much yet. I saw some names briefly while researching something else. are you related to the Kidneys? I thought it was quite a coincidence that these kidney boys are buried in Ellenville, N.Y., where I was born! Debby hope to hear from you.
