Just wanted to say "Thank You" Martha for all your help, hard work, & photos. You have been such a big help with your book and all the ancestry work you have done. I have picked up where you left off, you could say in a way. But thanks to you and all you did before me, my work was just a little less stressful in some areas! Hugs to you my 5th cousin 1x removed.

RE: Forest Hill cemetery
Hi Martha, I have contacted a few people about the Brocton Cemetery and they all say that the records don't exist anymore and not everyone buried in Brocton cemetery were moved. Also, I have not heard back from the gentleman that takes care of the records for the Evergreen in Portland.
Someone at the Portland Clerk's office told me to call Jim Boltz, I called him and I told him about the Da Lee family and a short time later he called and said he had found an obituary in the Fredonia Censor, April 8 1840 for Waterman Da Lee.
Also, an ad in in another issue of the paper: For Sale, 1000 gal. superior quality rectified WHISKEY--- cheap for cash F. DaLee Jr.
Another, New Goods W. & F. Da Lee, very long ad listing their new merchandise.
Finally, an ad for a Writing School, FIELD DALEE Writing Master, then new ad right below that is, An Evening School for teaching ARITHMETIC by, Waterman DaLee, Dec. 1st 1824.
I'll be glad to mail the copies to you if you give me your address, just send address to my personal email on Find a Grave. I will also include Jim Boltz address in case you want to send him a Thank You card. Sincerely, Ron

RE: Forest Hill cemetery
Hi Martha, Okay, this is what I found out today when I went to see Audrey at Forest Hill. We went through three books.
There are only two stones on all of the plots, not only were people buried in plot S-9, but they used part of plot S-8, S-10 and S-76 which is in back of plots 8 and 9.
In the book it says children of Timothy Judson, since Nancy was already dead in 1883 and buried in the plot along with Charles K Riggs died 1885 and Lucius L Riggs 1900. Then on October 28th 1901 the following were reburied in Forest Hill, Timothy Judson, Justus D Judson, there is a headstone for him as I said, Ann Eliza, which I think is the other headstone, Willie Riggs, Field Judson, and finally Ann La Dee. There are no dates to when these people died.
We also checked all of Forest Hill and James Waterman and Anstis Kinnicutt Da Lee are not buried there, unless the Ann is Anstis.
The cemetery in Brocton doesn't exist anymore and there were no burials there after 1880, but I will check with the clerk there to see if there is any information or dates for the children. If not some of the people reburied from the Brocton Cemetery are in The Evergreen Cemetery in Portland, which is right next to Brocton.
Hope this helps some. Sincerely, Ron

Forest Hill cemetery
Hi Martha, I checked for your requests this morning for the Dalee and Judson families. I have a map of the cemetery plots and there are only two headstones there. One is for a Justus Judson son of T and Nancy D Judson died at age 26 in 1860 or 1866, very hard to read. The other stone the name can't be read, the only thing I can make out is daughter of ________ Judson.
I have checked a few requests for people for their relatives that were moved from the Brocton Cemetery to Forest Hill and I have yet to find headstones for anyone that was moved.
I will check with Audrey, she takes care of all the books for the cemetery and see what I can find out. At least I should find out what the daughter's name is on that headstone. Sincerely, Ron Kinney
