Barber Lot in Mt. Hope
Hi, Jan,

Thank you SO much for all of your volunteer work and for creating so many memorials! Your work is a tremendous help to us in finding family members.

My sister and I have been working on linking up the graves of our Barber family ancestors in Norwich. We don't live in New York, so we are only doing this on Find a Grave.

We noticed, on James Sheldon Barber's memorial, that you put that he was buried in the "Barber Lot."

We have also seen that there is a "Benjamin Barber farm cemetery" listed as one of the cemeteries in Norwich.

Benjamin Barber Sr., born 1756, and his wife, Sarah Tefft Barber, born 1768 (both death dates unknown), were our 5x great grandparents, but we cannot find their graves.

I suspect the Benjamin Barber farm cemetery was on their farm (which I know existed from their daughter-in law Elsie Sweet Barber's very detailed obituary) and that they are buried there.

But my sister wondered whether the "Barber Lot" in Mt. Hope might be the same thing as the Benjamin Barber farm cemetery, that maybe it is just a section in Mt. Hope.

If you have any knowledge or ideas that could help us to understand this and to figure out where Benjamin and Sarah might be buried, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you so much for your consideration of this matter.

All the best,

Hartwick Seminary Cemetery - Alger Family
You are showing photos of four Alger monuments at Hartwick Seminary Cemetery. These same four burials have been posted by someone else as being at Hartwick Village Cemetery. Is there any way you could double check to make sure which cemetery is their actual resting place. If you could let me know, that would be great. Thanks so much, Kathy Hill (Find A Grave Member #47225156)

Cathe a Day descendant
Mildred E Day Frink
I am researching Alfred Day's descendants and believe George William Day is one of his sons. His family, i.e. Mildred's parents Mary E and George W and her siblings Raymond, Daisy, Clara Eloise, Georgia, and Florence are buried in Sherburne West Hill Cemetery, Sherburne, Chenango County, NY. According to a Day researcher Mildred was the only one who married and had a family. I didn't see a way to link the family to her other than parent relationships which I did try to enter for her.

Judi Schoonover
Louisa Cherokee Parks

I am researching the above. She is the daughter of George Washington Parks and Louisa Spriggs. I am finding contradictions in memorials on her. I have her born c 1850 but there is a memorial having her born in 1829. As her parents weren't married until 1841, that's not likely. I don't believe she was married to Abraham Columbus Parks or Columbus Parks. Any understanding you can give me on her would be helpful and appreciated. You can email me at Thanks, Judi Schoonover

David yager
I am curious as to how you matched the newspaper clipping to David Yager. There were many David Yagers in the area around Oneonta, especially at that time period. (I have many Yagers in my ancestry). The Memorial is # 46355555.

I am trying to sort all the David Yagers out and would very much appreciate some further information on this David Yager. Thanks! Ruth

What a great accomplishment!
Thank you so much for all your efforts at the Mount Hope cemetery. What a great accomplishment!

Several of my relatives are buried there including my Aunt Mary, who was murdered at age 7, just 6 weeks before my father was born. Members of the town contributed toward her gravestone, so even though her parents were poor and it was during the depression, she has one of the largest gravestones in her row. (Back then, they buried people in order of when they died.)

Thank you again for all your efforts!

Jothan Allds 40593032

Jothan is actually Jotham Powers Allds born in Claremont NH and died in Norwich NY. His father's name was Jotham Gillis Alld who is buried in Claremont NH. Lucy Charlotte Powers Chase was Jotham's third wife.

Jotham P. Allds should be made famous as he was a New York State Senator involved in one of the biggest bribery scandals the state ever saw and can be found in practically every newspaper between January & April 1910 (I even found the trial written up in the Nebraska State Journal).
