RE: Old Rossman Ground
Rosemary, you are very welcome. I also have a picture of most of the cemetery posted, however it has not been approved yet so not everyone can see it. Unless you've been there the cemetery is very hard to find. Fite Rossman is my 5th great grandfather through his son Peter and his daughter Elizabeth. Are you at all related. Yesterday we had a little ceremony for Fite with myself and several other Rossmans from Colorado and Maryland. It was very nice

Cordially, Elliott

Hi Rosemary, I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you on this. The weather turned unpleasant so I shut down for the season. Things are beginning to turn for the better so I hope I can find this out soon.

Moses Eggleston
I'm contacting you because you left "flowers" on the gravestone for Moses Eggleston. I descend from a Moses Eggleston, and I'm currently doing research to figure out whether this is my Moses or not. My Moses d. 1851 "across the river" and was buried first in the Old City Cem. in Dubuque. In 1853 early his wife Olive Eggleston, nee Hitchcock, purchased a plot at what is now Linwood - Dubuque and I believe she had him moved. At first I thought he was in the plot she purchased, but after Cheryl posted the pic. I'm wondering now. Are you related to this family? I do have a fair amount of info I'd be happy to share. I intend to go to Dububque again as soon as it's a bit warmer and try to figure it all out. In any event, it's wonderful and Moses has more flowers. Marianne reed7nelson@gmail.com

Ok, I went back to the cemetery and it looks like cassanora at the top of the headstone. Also, on the side theres another name. I took pics of that plus other surrounding headstones with the name hitchcock if you want them.

RE: Hannah Hitchcock
The creator of the memorial knows very well that the Cemetery office has no record but insists, with no corroborating evidence or clue, on ASSUMING that they were buried in the Elm St. burying place and removed to the Springfield Cemetery in 1848 among the 2,000 unidentified remains that were placed in a mass grave. How "convenient" for him!

You're welcome Rosemary. When I get back to Hillside, I'll see if I can make out the rest of Joseph's inscription.

I am not directly related to her , my GG grandmothers sisters son was married to her. Our old family album had many pics that had little tabs of paper labeling relatives. One of the tabs had Jaskas name, but fell off the pic. So I was wondering if you had a pic of her so I can find out which pic in our album may be her.

Thanks, amy

RE: Munson and Amelia
Hello Rosemary,

No no, please don't think I am upset, that you brought Munson & Amelia to my attention, I'm not at all. When I spoke to my son in law, he said pull them, because he didn't want me to have to sort out any confusion, (He has been very protective, I think he's worried that my cheese will slip off my cracker) so I pulled them. After a bit, I pulled out my records to check a few things out and reference his great grandfathers notes. The year 1910 that he had wrote down had a question mark after it, with, "Can't be Woodlawn it opened in 1910", further notation states "West Avenue most likely correct burial of Munson and Amelia, checked, no headstones found". It appears that he did not pursue it any further. I have completed photographing West Avenue cemetery in 2010 and I too, found no headstones for any Hitchcock.

How strong I am, well...... we raised 8 children and I am very strong on tenacity, I could always hold out longer than my children. Are family has always maintained a great sense of humor, so I owe a lot to that, in helping to move forward. With the love, strength and that great humor from my children and 2 wonderful son in laws, we are moving forward.

I thank you for your kind words, understanding and offer of prayer. These are wonderful gifts that other family, friends and even strangers have graciously given, it's very much appreciated. It has been a hard road forward, I miss them all very much, especially my husband and son.

A notation on the West Avenue Cemetery in Canandaigua, they have no older records, they have long been gone. Old burials have only been noted by what is still left of headstones in the cemetery. I will be moveing Munson & Amelia into West Avenue Cemetery with notation: most likely buried here, but have no concrete certainty.

The Best to You Rosemary and Yours,

Hitchcock, Munson & Amelia
Hello again Owlady,

Upon pulling out some of own notes, I have re-entered Munson & Amelia (Case) Hitchcock back into Woodlawn Cemetery. I was the original creator and I feel that removing them was premature. I will do a little more checking, as I believe I know where the problem lies.

The Best to You and Yours, Buttefly~Kisses

RE: Munson and Amelia Hitchcock
Hello Owlady,

I like your handle. I deleted Munson and Amelia Hitchcock after reviewing this information with my son in law, as they are part of his collateral lineage. He is continuing on with his family history and his great grandfathers notations that were wrote down in 1910, say they were buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Canandaigua. I know that many times older cemetery burial records are either non existent or are not absolutely complete. It's very possible that his great grandfathers notation could have been supplied to him by another family member, who could have been mistaken. So, in considering these possibilities we opted to delete Munson and Amelia. If you should find them and add them to Find A Grave, let me know and I will connect the children.

As for Munson Hitchcock in "Bristol Center Cemetery", he is in Helen's records. I also Know Helen and we attend the same church.

I live here in this area and I completed photographing the Oldest part of "Evergreen Cemetery" in Bristol in 2009 & 2010. I also have most of the middle section done. I have completed many other cemeteries in Ontario and Livingston Counties as well. I have been doing this for about 10 years now, as the digital camera has made this wonderfully possible. I have been doing my family history for 45+ years.

Uploading of photos was severely interupted during 2011 and I am just getting back to adding the photos to the memorials I have made. My husband died Easter Sunday, April 24th, 8 months & 8 days later, my son died December 16th, May 22nd my friend kathy died, November 19th our great friend Dave died. All in 2011, then on April 1st 2012 our great friend Stephen died. I lost 5 very special people from my life in less than 1 year.

The Best to You and Yours, Butterfly~Kisses

RE: Munson
That's a very good possibility. But, since their sons and daughters were buried in this vicinity it makes sense that they would be here, too. You are most welcome. Yes, please let me know what
you discover. This has become a matter of interest to me. All the Best, Paul

RE: Munson Hitchcock
Rosemary, Thank you for the kindly remark. I knew about the Munson in Bristol d. 1834 and thought that he had a marker. Helen Fox has no record of Munson d. 1880 in Bristol but she has
the inventory list and not a list of recorded
burials. I remember now that burial records were not required at that time. I've checked all the cemeteries in Canandaigu, Bristol, Farmington and surrounding towns online and don't find Munson. I see now that the memorials for Munson and Amelia in Woodlawn have been deleted.
Paul

RE: Munson Hitchcock
Rosemary,

You are very welcome. I am not done yet. I will contact the Ontario County Historical Society, who has the Ontario Co burials listed in alphab
order followed by the name of the cemetery. And
I will ask Bristol historian Helen Fox who has
the records for Bristol Center Cemetery. I think he is in Bristol Center but without a stone because another Munson Hitchcock is there with a stone. I am going by the Genweb list and that is usually a stone inventory. Munson and his wife had a home there and you can see it on this page
with a reference to Munson and Amelia in the last
paragraph
