RE: Oliver Carson
Good to hear from you. I have William Carson's obituary, stating that he was born in Richfield Springs. I have a 1908 article stating that William & Michael Carson are traveling from West Exter (near Richfield Springs) to Mechanicville to attend their uncles funeral.

If any of this info is of use, I'm happy to share.

If I come to have info about Robert and Eliza Carson (immigrants) I'll be happy to share!

Oliver Carson
Hi Scarlett,
You have Mary C. Carson listed as a spouse of Oliver, but she's his daughter, given the age listed for her on census records when she's in his household.

If you're a descendant, I'd appreciate the chance to exchange information. My husband is a descendant of Oliver's brother, William C. Carson, born in Richfield & relocated to Mechanicsville & died in 1908.

RE: Roxina Pelton Irwin

Find A Grave Memorial# 87644979
Abraham Gillett (1793-1839), who had a daughter Laura
Likely Roxina's husband

Other relatives:
Abraham Gillett (1754-1820), father of the above Abraham
Vague possibility the Find A Grave Memorial# 22766372 *might* be him, since the memorial says "Revolutionary patriot", and Abraham was in Pvt Capt Hooker's Conn State Regiment Jan - Mar 1776

Roxina's parents:

William Pelton (1771-1839)
Find A Grave Memorial# 62815462

Ruth Clark Pelton (1772-1846)
Find A Grave Memorial# 62815475

I have a picture of your great-great grandparents Abraham Organ Gillett and Caroline Whitney that I've scanned. I can send it/park it somewhere for you if you're interested.

Thanks again. We really enjoyed the last will and testament you shared.

RE: Roxina Pelton Irwin

Do you know if Roxina was full-blooded Iroquois? Since Iroquois lineage flows down through the mother, if she wasn't it's possible the American Indian ancestors are on Ruth Clark Pelton's side. I have nothing other than Ruth's parents names (don't have her mother's maiden name) & siblings. I realize your volunteer activities (and your real life) take up a lot of time, but if there is anything else in your great-grandfather's book that might be helpful it would be wonderful (but not expected of you). it's possible you've already shared most info in your terrific write ups at their grave memorials. My husband's great-grandmother was Martha Gillett, one of the aunts who helped raise Abraham after his father's death. Thanks so much!

Roxina Pelton Irwin
My husband's 4th great-grandmother is Roxina Pelton Irwin (through her first husband Abraham Gillette). We were pleased to find her headstone, and also surprised that the write-up included the information she was an Iroquois Indian. We wanted to find out how you came by that information. This is the only place where we've seen this information mentioned.

Thanks so much.

Ann Mullen, wife of Charles Mullen

"Murty" Keough
Regarding Mortimer "Murty" Keough (# 64979713), I am trying to clarify a mistake by Findagrave. They list three cemeteries related to St Mary's Catholic Church in Cooperstown, but there are only two. The two that are correct are "Irish Hill" on Glen Ave in Cooperstown (1862-1920's) and "St Mary's Cemetery" in Index, NY (1926 to present). There is no actual "St Mary's Our Lady of the Lake Cemetery" as listed by F.A.G. on Elm Street Cooperstown. That is where the CHURCH is, but there is no cemetery there. Irish Hill is west of town, and St Mary's Cemetery is well south of town. Since Murty died in 1915, he is almost certainly not in "St Mary's Cemetery", which had its first interment in 1926. If he was buried in the cemetery associated with St Mary's church at the time of his death, he might be in "Irish Hill". Next time we go there, we'll be sure to look for him... (anyway, we're hoping to get F.A.G. to consolidate "Our Lady of the Lake" which doesn't really exist, with St Mary's in Index, which does...) Best wishes in your genealogy research! Hope this clarifies, rather than muddies the waters...

Oliver Carson
Researching Carson line that arrived in New York from Ireland & lived in vicinity of Richfield Springs in the mid-nineteenth century.

If you are a Carson relative, do you know the father of Oliver Carson? Do you know if Oliver had brothers named James & William.

My starting point is William Carson who was born in NY to Irish parents. William married Mary Agnes Cronin, youngest child of Jeremiah Cronin and Ann Holleran (these parents were both born in Ireland, but emigrated to US/New York State). Ann Holleran & 2 children are buried in St Joseph's Cemetery @ Lakeview Cemetery in Richfield Springs.

I believe William may be brother to both a James Carson and Oliver Carson, and that their parents are Robert & Eliza Carson, born in Ireland & emigrated to Otsego County, NY

William is my husbands 2nd great grandfather; I appreciate any information you may be willing to share or direction you might offer.

Thank you!

Wm & Sarah Earll; West Union Cem.

We spent some time yesterday at the West Union Cemetery looking for William and Sarah's headstones. Could not find them. However, we did find two plots with other Earll family members in them. I would like to "discuss" the information I have with you, but it is too voluminous for this forum. Would you provide an e-mail address to further explore this information?

Matthews and Carson Families
Hi Scarlett,
I was given three "Treasured Memories" books...
(Books that people sign at funerals to say who was there to give their condolences)
The books are for:
John S. Matthews, Jr. who died in 1974

(No name in 2nd book but, I think it is for John S. Matthews, Sr. - date was September 09, 1950,

and the last was for Bessie A. Matthews who died Nov. 24, 1935. One book has condolence cards with it. There is an obituary for on of the "John Matthews"
There is a funeral memorial card for Ethel(Matthews) Ames, wife of Marion D. Ames, who died March 17, 1970
The people who gave them to me would like themto go to a family member. Are these anything that you would like to have?

Mortimer keough
Just returned from Irish hill cemetery. I found a plot. Not the name you were looking for. I found the Mortimer 1877-1947. Got this from the church records. His name is not listed on the stone. Email me and I will send you what I have. Will go back to St.marys next week and check on the one from 1845-1915.
