I added the request for the photo and hopefully someone will find it and add the photo.
|Donna Davenport||Re Irving Crandall:|
First of all Happy New Year. Irving's obit was in a scrapbook my aunt had created. It would have been from one of the local newspapers. Probably Morris as many of the items were from that. I will change the spelling of his mother's name to your spelling. I'm glad this was of help to you. I took the time to type all the items in her many scrapbooks hoping the information would be a treasured find to relatives. Donna

I'm happy I could help. Barb French took the photos, she does a nice job.
Have a Happy New Year!
|RiverFallsHistory||RE: Alf Betterley|
Nope, I gave you Alf Betterley. I was just wondering who his parents are is all for part of the research I am doing on the Maiden Rock area. I think his wife was Maranda Crandall (b.November 6, 1837 Milford, Pennslyvania d. Jan 1909 in Chippewa County, Wisconsin. Is that correct? I also have 4 children Alf Betterly who is buried at the Ono Methodist Cemetery in Pierce County, Francis Betterley in the Porcupine Cemetery, Pepin County and Roy and Harold Betterley who I know next to nothing about except their names.
I transferred Alf Betterley to you. I'm assuming he's the son of George? I'm working on a history of Maiden Rock along with genealogy of the early families there for a future Pierce County Historical Association project. If you find out anything more of the Betterley's time in the Maiden Rock area please let me know. - Dan Pierce County Historical Association.

I've started the paperwork for the Mayflower Society. I can easily do the one to Brewster, but almost all of the others hinge on a difficult-to-document great-great-grandmother. Gotta love New York State genealogy; it's a great black hole where documentation falls in, never to be seen again.

Sodom Cemetery (love the name!) is way too small to have an office; it hasn't had active burials since 1911. It's a true farm cemetery -- it's right next to a wheat field. It's also in pretty rough shape, although someone at least mows it, which is better than a lot of farm cemeteries.
Glad I could at least point you to the known inscription from the previous survey. At least enough of the stone survived we could get SOME confirmation, even if it was just two words (but they're two words that don't usually appear on tombstones).

|bcfrench||Amos Lamson's stone|
I found the Lamson site and photographed the stone, although it is not in the condition I am sure you would prefer. This is a very early stone, and many of these in this area used a soft slate that tended to peel off in layers over time. In this case, nearly the entire face of the stone is gone. Almost the entire stone is now unreadable save two words at the bottom of what was a lengthy inscription: "The appearance". Since this was in the last line of his inscription (as recounted on this site's transcription of an earlier census when the stone was apparently not so damaged, http://genesee.bettysgenealogy.org/sodom.htm ). That and its position at the left side of his wife Elizabeth's stone have convinced me that this is, unfortunately, what is left of Amos' stone. I took both a picture of the stone and a closeup of the remaining couple words that escaped damage, and left notes in the captions concerning the condition and the original inscription.

|Kari Leonard||Matthias Lane|
Hello. I have just finished transcribing the Farmersville Center Cemetery in Farmersville, Catt. Co., NY & I have not found Matthias. I also looked in the records of a lady who transcribed this cemetery many years ago & she doesn't have him in either. Are you sure he is here? There are many stones that are old/broken/gone so maybe his is one of them. Please let me know if you believe he is here & I will check with the lady who has the cemetery records.

I haven't yet found a contact for the cemetery directly. However, you may want to contact the Farmersville town historian. See: http://farmersvilleny.org/
