RE: Salmon Harding
Hi, Heather: I understand your confusion. The Harriet Mellen buried in Richland, NY was the daughter of Henry and Alice Harris Mellen. She was born in 1831 and died in 1927 at the age of 96. Her obituary appeared in the Sandy Creek News on December 8, 1927, page 13. The other Harriet Mellen was the daughter of Nathan and Polly Fox Mellen. She was born in 1795 and died in 1863. Her husband was Salmon Harding (1794-1838). They were the parents of Henry S., Phila E., and John M. On the 1860 census for Sandy Creek you will see that Harriet and son John (he died in 1861) were living with John H. and Phila Hubbs who had been married in 1853. Phila died in 1917 and her obituary can be found in The Oswego Palladium (June 29, 1917). The obituary distinctly says that she was the daughter of Solomon [Salmon] and Harriet Mellen Harding. Her husband, John, died in December, 1921. A death notice was published in the Sandy Creek News on December 15, 1921, page 4.
I have only recently begun a study of the Mellen family and I can assure you they are not an easy clan to trace. I hope this information helps. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall

Salmon S. Harding
Hi! May I offer a correction for this man? his wife was Harriet Mellen (1795-1863). Phila was Salmon and Harriet's daughter. She married a man named John Hubbs in 1856. They lived in Sandy Creek, NY.

Thank you for the Spencer family photos. I realize since they are so old they are hard to read but I was hoping to get dates off of them. Please let me know if you could read them better in person or have other information. Thanks.

RE: Tamblin location
Thank you for the correction. Not being from that area, I thought those were the same cemetery. I have changed this. Thank you very much for your efforts.

Emotional Thank You
As a volunteer photographer with Find A Grave, I work diligently at finding marked graves as well as unmarked graves that others have given up the search for, and I find a sense of satisfaction when I fulfill photo requests in western Colorado where I live.

Assuming that my Father's grave remained unmarked since his passing only a couple months ago and seeing the long list of photo requests for Woodlawn Cemetery in upstate NY, I assumed I would not get a response; however, you certainly surprised me.

The photo of my Father's resting place has such vibrant color and vivid detail of the beautiful floral arrangement, military name plate, marker, and flag. It brought forth much emotion, including tears of joy. I did not realize how much comfort a photo could bring. Although I cannot visit his grave in person, I can take a moment here with the stillness of the photo. It is priceless. I send a very emotional thank you!

I now know the genuine gratitude people are expressing when I too post photos of their loved ones and ancestors on this site.

I thank you sincerely for the peace you have brought to my heart. In an effort to pay it forward, I have asked my relatives in the Potsdam, NY area if they may be able to help fulfill two of your photo requests. A virtual hug and wishes for plentiful blessings to you!
