RE: Lewis, William
Good luck with your research. Can be frustrating but very rewarding at times.

RE: Lewis, William
I prefer using the edit tab to make corrections or edits. I am in no way related so don't mind transferring them either. It'll be easier for you to add info as you find it

RE: Samuel Conover
I'm not sure but if you would like for me to edit them I have no problem doing it. Just request it through the edit tab. Or if you want I can transfer them.

Rosie Atwood
Chris, an update to the last message.

I misspoke on Samuel Conover. He does appear to be there, but the stone pictured doesn't have a name. Francis Atwood does not appear in the book of readings. As far as Rosie Atwood, no stone has been found for her in any readings of 2nd Mount Pleasant. The bare ground that I spoke of that could possibly be her is located next to William Atwood. It is just a guess on my part.

RE: Atwood cemetery

In 1999 into 2000, every known cemetery was read In Johnson County. Books were produced based on not only the 2000 readings, but every known reading done in the County between 1932 and 2000. Adding the information from the earlier readings was very important, because a stone may have been there or readable in 1932, but by 2000 be gone or unreadable. In those cases, the information from 1932 was denoted, and the fact that the stone was no longer there or not readable was also denoted for any given person that this applied to. In 1999 Atwood Cemetery was read and this is what was put in the notes for it: Atwood Cemetery, located 1/2+ mile east of 700E and 400S near I-65. Cemetery is on the south side of the road in a wooded area in the middle of a field. At one time, this was a livestock area so stones are down. Extremely poor condition. Only 3 intact stones were found in 1999, but there may be more under the briars and poison ivy" You may see names added to the cemetery on Find a Grave, but that doesn't mean that they are there. Many times people guess and put someone in a cemetery without knowing if they are there or not. I would imagine that in the 1932 reading many more stones were standing and the ones that were, were recorded and are in this book. No Samuel Conover or Frances Atwood appear in any reading done. That doesn't mean that they aren't there, just that if they are no stones have been found for them. It is useless to put up photo requests at cemeteries such as this one that are in so bad shape as they may as well not exist. Hope this helps you.

RE: atwood
I think you are right about the money being tight. I assume she is in the bare ground next to his stone.

I was able to get photos of some of the Atwoods but not all. Because Stella died in 1877 she was in a different, older section of the Cemetery than her parents. Rosie could not be found. There is bare ground next to the grave of her parents, and I believe that is where she is, but there is no stone for her. There have been many readings of this cemetery between 1932 up to 2000, the last one, and no stone had ever been recorded for Rosie.

M Mills Cortland Cty Farm Cemetery
Hi Chris, I was just rereading my messages, and don't recall if I answered you.

I have a M Mills listed for the Cortland County Farm Cemetery.
