Find A Grave Memorial# 135423578
I finally approved your edit request for this memorial. I was wondering if you have any idea what the first name of her 2nd husband is. Would like to add it to her memorial.

Mike Burnett
Lucretia Conkling Miller DOB
You have on the face page of Lucretia (Conkling) Miller's Find-a-Grave (70037742) a date of death as 1781. However, on the grave marker that she shares with her husband, Burnet Miller, the marker is inscribed as date of death 1818.

Please correct!

Alfred Davis
Alfred is buried next to the fence in Section 59 Lot 1579, in the first grave of row 33. He does not have a headstone.

Joseph most likely doesn't have headstone, at least 3 of us at different times have photographed this Section and the cemetery has no record of a headstone.Joseph is buried 1st grave 33rd row. Just on the other side of the path to the south 1st grave Row 34 Dr. Robert Davis has headstone. I will double check and get a picture of the grave site my next trip to the cemetery. The grave is close to the fence.

RE: Pratt Cemetery, Cambridge
Thank you for replying. Did you talk to anyone in Cambridge who knew more about the location of the cemetery? I see you give a location of it near the corner of two roads. When my sister looked there, there was no obvious cemetery.
Would you recommend we ask the Cambridge Historian? I appreciate your help with this!
Any tips you have for locating our ancestors is appreciated!
Thanks again. If we find any stones when we are back there, we will let you know.

Pratt Cemetery, Cambridge
Some of our ancestors are listed in your Find A Grave being buried at the Pratt Cemetery near Cambridge, NY.
My sister was in that area and could not find the cemetery. Has it been abandoned? Are there still headstones there? We are planning a trip for later this Spring and would like to stop there.

We are interested in Audre Allen Ford and Mehittable Ford. Have you been to the cemetery or is it only known through records?

Thank you for your help!

Oliver Wilcox children
I'm helping a friend complete her DAR application and we're stuck trying to prove that her ancestor John Wilcox was the son of Oliver Wilcox born 1747. I see that you have them both listed on the find a grave site, memorial 120071233. Is there any chance you could share the documentation that would help us prove this link? Thanks so much!

Ebenezer Green, Dorcas Grant, Ezra Moore
Hello Elizabeth,
See that you are interested in the above 3 people- Dorcas and both her husbands. Like you, I look at the whole family, all the sibs, aunts, uncles, children and grandchildren. So the Grant line is pretty clear, and the Green line is okay, But for the Moore line I am not even sure of Ezra's parents. I have recently found Ezra's Rev war Pension application on line, which says he was born in Pembroke NH. There is testimony from a cousin who says their fathers were brothers but does not name either one. Early Thetford Vermont records indicated both a James and a William Moore. And by 1800 there have been 2 Williams, 2 James, 1 Thomas and 1 Ezra

1790 Census VT Thetford Orange Co., VT: males 16 & +/ 15 & -; all females; all other.
James Moors 1-2-1; Thomas Moors 1-0-2; William Moors.

1800 Census VT Moor Wm 0-0-1-0-1//0-1-2-0-1; Moor James 2-0-0-1-0//0-0-0-1-0; Moor Hannah 0-0-1-0-0//0-0-2-1-1

Are you interested in this problem. My best guess is Ezra and William Jr. are sons of William, and James and Thomas are sons of James. Know a few more sourses to consider.
I'm a descendant of Col. Ebenezer Green's sister Jerusha.

Whites at Mt Carmel
Hi Elizabeth!
I see you requested a George White from Mt Carmel. I actually photographed the entire cemetery. I have about 10 Whites, but not a George. Although many stones are illegible.
I am still working on "reading" some of those ones. Sometimes I can change the coloring on the picture and get names.
If you want I can email you the Whites that I have...just send me your email address!

Hey Elizabeth!
Happened upon the memorial for Charles Strong/Tabor and realized there are 2 memorials for him? One you have listed in Johnson Cemetery and the other you have in Lakeview. Can you check into this?

RE: Dr & Mrs Wesley Strong
Hi Elizabeth,
Glad the found the info helpful. I will trudge on with the Davis gang! As to the 1968 payments, here's my thought.

The early records do not indicate payments for any of the lots, yet they DO list lot owners. I wonder if the descendants of those families were burying family members without paying anything to the cemetery?

Maybe Protection tried to get some money coming in by requiring family to bring the burial fees of those already buried in a given plot up to date before anyone else could be buried in that plot. This makes complete sense when you consider the payments made to your plot - 2 payments made in 1968 for 2 people that died more than 40 years part.

So Pearl, who died in 1968, couldn't be buried in Protection until the payments for the other folks buried there many years before, were brought up to date.

Make sense?

zimri danly
Zimri Danly wasn't a veteran of the Revolution rather war of 1812.. Fought in the battle of Sackets harbor. Listed on the payrolls 2nd Sergeant, promoted 1st Sergeant, then commissioned Ensign (Militia).

The Revolution story, is mucked up, that was by Gr Gr Grandmother Amelia Collins, Dau Issac Collins and Almina Danly who wrote that article. I have her original notes. She questioned that also. I believe Zimri he might have come from New Hampshire. His father might have been a Revolutionary veteran. Maybe... Basing this on DNA relation still need..

Zimri pension and land grants are up on 3fold.

Dr & Mrs Wesley Strong
Hi Elizaeth!
I have been working on Protection cemetery using copies of the original records and maps that were given to me by the caretaker. I am interested in the Davis family and hoping you might be interested in looking into some of the Davis family that are buried in the old section at Protection.

The GOOD news is that I can confirm that Dr. & Mrs. Wesley Strong ARE buried in Protection. I am still working on the old section, but ran into this family while working on something else. I have put in an update request to you for the section/lot/grave numbers for the Strongs. Here's the info from Lot 74 in the New Section;

Grave #1 Ava Bush (no further info)

Grave #2 Fred G Bush, 1 coffin

Grave #3 Burl M Bush, 1 coffin

Grave #4 Margaret E Bush, 1 cremation (this is a bit confusing, maybe you can clear things up). The record lists the previous info, but the map has the words "5/31/97 ERN, Margaret Bush" in the grave #4 position, but then the lot has a large "X" thru it.

Grave #5 Doris Bush, 1 coffin (again, a bit confusing as the record lists the previous info but the map has nothing written in space #5, it should say "Doris Bush" and there is a big "X" thru it.

Grave #6 Attie Clark Strong, pd 3/20/1968 by Clark, 1 coffin

Grave #7 Wesley Strong, pd 3/20/1968 by Clark, 1 coffin

Grave #8 vacant, pd 3/20/1968 by Clark

Grave #9 Calvin Moulton, 1 coffin

Grave #10 Finis Moulton, 1 coffin

The whole "pd 3/20/1968 by Clark" is confusing, too. I am guessing the "Clark" is Wesley's wife who remarried a Clark, but Addie died in 1946 so I can't figure out how she paid in 68 - oddly enough, her daughter Pearl died 1/20/1868, right? That's 2 months before the "3/20/1968" date. hmmmmm. your thoughts?

Send me a message if you think you might be able to help with the Davis gang in the old section - I've got names in Lot 24 which was owned by Warren Everett Davis like; Iva Horton, Alice Hirsh, W. Davis (will), Austin "Putt" Davis (actually have info on him), Nathaniel Pendelton Davis (actually have that info, too), "Nub's wife" (yup, that's all it says - gotta love THAT record), 1st wife Davis, 2nd wife Davis, Sally Davis. Anything ring a bell?

Love to hear from you,

Peter Snider
I would appreciate if you would kindly turn over the Peter Snider to me as he is family. I am working on linking all the family members and have information to add to this individual.
Peter is listed in the Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol 4 p Serical: 11999 Vol 8 and is buried in Emmanuel Cemetery in Mansfield, Ohio.
You do have some information but I have a great deal more to add.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

RE: Edner Saunders #74548542
Hi Elizabeth:
That is so cool about them being in the same company in the war. I guess not to be surprised as these folks travelled together and moved together to new places. I have a print out of the original Find A Grave page you had posted and it had "Edner" as the spelling. I agree with your opinion about mistranscriptions.

RE: Edner Saunders #74548542
Dear Elizabeth:
I am sorry to write to you with what I think is an error on my part. I did some more research on Edner/Ednah Sanders and I found Edner Sanders listed in the 1810 US census in Haverhill New Hampshire. The name Edner I always assumed was misspelled or a male name. I was looking for Edner's husband Avery and curiously enough I can not find him anywhere in the 1810 US census. I know that his family moved to Peru New York around 1810. But it totally surprised me when I went back to the 1810 census in Haverhill and found "Edner" listed as a female and head of the house. Her age matches the Edner that is buried in Peru/Au Sable NY. so I have seen her name as Edner and also Ednah. Ednah came from the TRANSCRIBED Haverhill town clerk records. I know these records are transcribed because when you look at them on they are all in the same penmanship, for over 50+ years. So I called the town clerk in Haverhill to see if I could get anyone to tell me that they still have the original records that I could look at (or pay someone to look at). They did not know if they still have the records- but what I am saying here is: I think her name is Edner and perhaps the transcription or maybe the original records list her as Ednah maybe incorrect. The only other possibly is Ednah was her nickname. But I think it wise to change the Find a Grave memorial back to Edner, and list Ednah as an alternative name/spelling. To recap, I have found her listed as Edner in the US 1810 census and from your memorial on Find a Grave. I have found her listed as Ednah in transcribed town clerk records. I have found a few leads on her birth and parents while researching Edner, but none while researching Ednah. If I come up with more supportive information I will be sure to get back to you and let you know. Again, sorry about this.
Lori Gray
