I encourage you to join the Mayflower Society if you can prove through documentation that you are BLOOD related to Wm Bradford. I've done it. I'm related to TWO original Mayflower pilgrims.

RE: Hi KC,
You are more than welcome. I do so enjoy the "dig" of genealogy. Linking that research with FindAGrave, I believe, helps others as well. Blessings - KC

RE: Hello Maggie O
That might help folks who are trying to find her, I have a few of my kin who were buried under "nicknames" makes its a little hard to find them. You are welcome, I am distantly related to the folks I sent you information on :)

RE: Thank you.
Rose,
My name is Jacqueline Shibley Bailey. I am married to Leon Dingman Sr.'s and Vivian J. Bailey Dingman's son Mark Duane Dingman Bailey. I do not have many pictures of the two of them. Just what was recently sent to me by Mark's sister, Neesha Lynn Dingman Zeidner. She was the first child of Leon and Vivian. Mark was not raised as a Dingman, he was adopted by Vivian's brother Orville D. Bailey, Jr. and Pamela Jean Griffin Bailey. He was given directly to them when he was three days old. Vivian never raised him. He was told it was because she was "sick".

Leon had these two children with Vivian, but he also has several other children by different women. Valeen Dingman, lives in Palatine Bridge, Shane Dingman, lives in Canajoharie, and Timothy Dingman, lives in Fonda. There mother was Diane Hogan. He has a son Daniel Dingman, lives in Amsterdam. I am not sure who his mother is or was. He has a son Leon Dingman Jr., currently residing in jail from what I understand. Then he adopted, Juanita Dingman Flewelling, who is Leon Jr.'s sister.

As to Vivian's death, she died as the result of carbon monoxide poisoning. She was in a vehicle with her lover, Ed "Punky" Cool in the throws of passion in the middle of winter. They were parked up against a snowbank as the story goes and the carbon monoxide filled the car, causing them to die. They were found in an extremely intimate position. I guess at this time, Vivian and Leon were not together, but I am not sure. As for Leon Sr., I was told he died alone from a heart attack and complications from diabetes. He was in his place for several days before anyone found him.

RE: Hi Barbara,
Okey Dokey, I did the following search:

"William Henry Dingman" Canajoharie

Here's what I got in order of appearance:

1. Your F/G Memorial listing for him
2. Your inquiry to Rootsweb looking for info about him
3. This website:
http://montgomery.nygenweb.net/cemeteries/ftplaincemetery.html

While the William Henry Dingman listed here isn't yours, he is very likely his son. More importantly, it offers a clue that there was a newspaper (The Radii) in Canajoharie, and that the local library has a family file on the Dingmans which may contain information about the William H. M. Dingman you're looking for.

By expanding the search further (i.e., "William Dingman" Canajoharie), it brought me the book History of Montgomery County" on Google Books, which lists a William Dingman sas a private in Co. F, 123rd NY Regiment during the Civil War.

One more expansion ("Dingman" Canajoharie), brought me a newspaper article on Google News Archive from the Schenectady Gazette of 11 Dec 1962 announcing the resignation of Alton R. Dingman, Canajoharie native, from Sheriff, to become Chief of Police for his hometown:

http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1917&dat=19621211&id=3-8qAAAAIBAJ&sjid=-4gFAAAAIBAJ&pg=1160,1647043

I didn't go past the first page on results on any of my searches, so there may be more out there.

RE: Hi Barbara,
Rose,

I'm happy the death notices I came across were useful to you, and will certainly share their source, which is not only online, but is also free.

The US Library of Congress hosts a website for a nationwide project called Chronicling America (ChroniclingAmerica.loc.gov), which supports free public access to early newspapers from 1836-1922. Under the 'Advanced Search' option, you can narrow down your search by date, state, a specific newspaper, or create very specific search parameters.

The nearly NY City papers are a treasure trove as they reported deaths and obits for people from around the world.

Newspapers back then--even those in small towns--reported much more widely on news than what we're used to today. It's not uncommon to find an obit for someone who lived in Boston being reported in Nebraska, for instance.

I did a search for the ancestor you mentioned, but wasn't able to find anything for him. Montgomery County, NY is a hard place to find records for, but you may have some luck checking with a library in that county. Even if your ancestor had moved away and died elsewhere, the doings of former residents were typically noted in the papers of where they'd previously lived so their former friends could keep up with them.

Another tip is to always do two internet searches: 1) for the surname of your ancestor + the place name of where you think they lived (i.e., "Dingman" Hicksville, NY). Put the family name in quote marks. The other search is to look for "newspaper archives" Hicksville, NY. Often, local libraries or historical societies will have an archive and do free or low-cost lookups for you, some even have searchable online indexes and will email you the obit. Also, some states (California, Kentucky and Colorado, for instance), have searchable newspaper archives that cover their entire state.

If all that fails, you can do a search for "Google Newspaper Archive" and it will bring back a list of papers by state or name of the paper and tell you if they're archived, where they exist.

More and more sites like NewspaperArchive.com; Fold3.com, and Newspapers.com are adding to their databases. For hard-to-research states like New York, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, etc. and for that 20-year gap between the 1880 & 1900 census, newspapers are often the only source of information you're likely to find for your ancestors.

Good luck, and happy hunting!

--Barbara
