RE: Reuben Hinman d1848
You have picked a cemetery that I have tried to gather as much information as I can. It is one of those cemeteries that will be lost with time if it is not documented.
I have very limited information on the Hinman/Hinnmans. I am more than happy to share and/or assist you.
In order for me to send you documentation I need an e-mail address so I can attach documents. I assure you that within minutes of my reading the message I will delete it. I took my e-mail address off of this site because there has been some abuse of it. Not me personally but, people I know so, I choose to be proactive.
What I want to send you is a document (hand typed sheets of paper) that I found at the New York State Library in Albany, NY. This is a reading of the stones in the "Cemetery on Old South Street, now Oxford Road, New Hartford". This reading was done September 1926 by a DAR member, well before they built the school.
Of interest to you are the entries:
"Hinnman, Elizabeth, wife of Reuben, d. Jan. 17, 1857 ae 83 yrs
Hinnman, Lydia, dau. of Capt. Noble, d May 19, 1810 ae 73 yrs New London, Conn."
That is an excerpt of the information in the document. There is no other infomation regarding the Hinman/Hinnman's in this document. If you do not want the original documentation that is fine.
I will search through my records and see what else I can find and let you know.
As for where to find the information you are seeking I would suggest, Oneida County Historical Society, Utica, Utica Library and Oneida County Clerk's Office, Utica. The Historical Society has "family files" which is a manila folder with information about certain families in the Oneida County area. I have found them very helpful. The Utica Library has a genealogical section which has a lot of information and takes a lot of time to go through. If you can not find it on the internet they have the 1/2 years censuses. The Oneida County Clerk's office has information on real estate, estates and other transactions. The important place is the basement of the Oneida County Offices, below the County Clerk's Office. That is in the basement and they have marriages, estates and many more records which people are not aware of. I have found the "basement" workers to be very helpful. Most people are not aware of the basement records. If you have limited time on your visit, I would suggest the Oneida County Historical Society first and the Oneida County basement second, Utica Library last. At the library their infomation is predominately on microfilm and their machines are at least 30 years old so, it is a tedious process. There is no assistance at the Utica Library, you are on your own and they don't care/can't be bothered.
When you visit see the memorial site.
I hope I have given you some help and will let you know what I find.
