George Baker
I am researching the 108th NY Vol. Inf. I found something a while back that listed George Baker (buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Penfield, NY) as being in that Regiment, but it's the only source that listed him as such (there are 13 others in that cemetery who were in that regiment, so I put his name in my roster as a possibility). In trying to find that source today, I came across this website: . It lists names and dates for George, his parents, and his siblings.

I'm not sure how accurate the information is, but it shows George as born in 1859, making him much too young to join the 108th during the Civil War. If anyone has any information about George that states he was in that regiment, would you please contact me at ? Thank you.

Memorial# 52407090
Beverly, this memorial is in the name of Sarepta Baker Cook - do you remember if that is the name on the tombstone or did the name come from cemetery records. The picture is hard to read..

I am trying to decide if this is the Sarepta (Deland) Cook that I am looking for. Baker sounds like a family name, but so far have found no "Baker" in the line. If this came from records do you have the address or someone to contact at Maple Rapids Cemetery?
Were there any other graves around this one?

thanks for your help,

RE: Elizabeth Trefry
Sorry it took a little while to write to you. I live further away from Nova Scotia than you. I live in Kansas. I visited the area to do research on my ancestors, concentrating on cemetery research.

I don't think the person you are asking about is the same person as the Joshua P. Trefry that is buried in Arcadia Cemetery. Next to him is Elizabeth. I wrote word for word the inscription on both of their tombstones. Elizabeth is the wife of Joshua P(itman) Trefry.

In the book "Yarmouth Nova Scotia Genealogies Transcribed from the Yarmouth Herald George S. Brown" prepared for publication by Martha and William Reamy (Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1993) on page 588 refers to a Joshua Pitman Trefry who married Elizabeth Kinney in 1782. His father was John Trefry. This is the Joshua P. Trefry with his wife Elizabeth I believe is buried in the Arcadia Cemetery.

I'm related through Joshua Pitman Trefry's brother, James, who married Elizabeth Allen in 1793.

There were many Joshua Pitman Trefry in Nova Scotia, in many other lines. The first Joshua P. Trefry could be the ancestor you are looking for. He came to Nova Scotia from Marblehead with John Trefry (mention above as the father of Joshua Pitman and James) about 1766. Both John Trefry and Joshua Pitman Trefry settled in the Chebogue Point area (see page 588). In the book there is no mention if they are related to each other and no mention of Joshua Pitman Trefry's wife.

Joshua's line starts on page 603 in the above mentioned book with his first son as Thomas. He married Martha Allen (no date listed). Other sons are listed, Benjamin‘s line starts on page 605 and William's line starts on page 608. Other children are likely but there is no mention of them. If this is your line, and they moved as you said, it is likely George S. Brown couldn't find someone with the knowledge of the additional children.

If this is your line you might want to find a copy of this book (local library or WorldCat) and study the pages I mentioned. I first became aware of the George S. Brown's Yarmouth Herald articles through microfilmed copies of the newspaper in the 1970's. I have Xerox copies of my family lines from the articles. These articles appeared in the paper from 1896 through 1909 and focused almostly on New England families of English descent. Most came from America around the time of the America Revolution (before, during and shortly after). Brown's newspaper articles are a great resource, pointing to clues to those doing Nova Scotia research in that time frame and earlier, when few if any vital records existed. The book is the transcription of those articles. Please read the preface for an understanding of the articles.

I hope this helps in your future research.

RE: Wallace Wayne Taylor
Hi Beverly,

I'm glad the information was useful to you. I had not gone for the actual death certificate. From family information, I had listed that the infant suffered from diabetes. Which could have complicated measles and the other list ailments.

How are you related to the Taylors? Aunt Maud Van Allen Taylor was my father's aunt. I remember visiting her at her apartment in Jackson, Michigan as a child.

Judy Levy Pfaff (myself)
Maxwell E. Levy (my Dad)
Edwina Sanderson Levy (my Grandmother)
Sarah E. Van Allen Sanderson (my Great Grandmother)

Sarah was a sister to Maud Van Allen Taylor.

If your interest is in the Taylor family, then this information might be useful to you:

Martha Amelia Winslow may be his grandmother (Floyd Taylor). Her parents were Wellington and Dolla Winslow. She is the lady who died in DeWitt and had the big obit in the Bath DeWitt Review. I do have a copy of this obit. I could scan it and send it to you if you are interested. The Winslows are buried in the DeWitt Cemetery (Michigan).
