Bio and Links
Bio Photo Recently retired. Love to fish, especially warmwater, freshwater gamefish species. Used to ice fish, but need a warmer non-summer activity. Thought Find-A-Grave might fit that opening, at least through the transition months. Both activities center around the central western portion of the Finger Lakes Region in Western New York. In 2010, caught and released a 20 1/2 inch largemouth in Honeoye, a 20 1/4 inch largemouth in Canandaigua, a 21 inch smallmouth in Keuka, a 40 1/4 inch northern in Keuka, and a 27 inch chain pickerel in Canandaigua. You've got to love the beauty of the hills, the richness of the farm lands, the water resources, and the history of the Finger Lakes and it's inhabitants.

RE: Family Photo
Re: Clawson photo
Hi, sorry it took so long to answer you. Your email went to my spam instead of inbox for some reason.

Yes, I was referring to the Clawson photo.
My grandfather was Carl Alexander Clawson, twin brother of George J. Clawson and son of Isabel.

I don't know much about his family as he died long before I was born and my grandmother (his wife) didn't seem to know much.

I have learned a bit more through my research.

Thank you for answering my email.

Thank you so much for these photos - they are very informative. Is there a headstone for Edward perchance?

Thank you again for taking the time to search in this cemetery and this particular plot. I was notified to repost my request because the error came to me by mistake and so I reposted the request. I originally thought that the cemetery was searched and no stone was there. So I thank you for taking the time to double check. It has taken me over 30 years to track her death down and find her resting spot. Now I know..

RE: Bath National
There's no rush Charles, none at all. There are plenty I need as I try to clean-up some names and dates - some of these men were incorrectly listed by either findagrave or the VA gravesite database. So I'll be requesting a few each week and there's no hurry as I do the clean-up.
If I get to upstate NY next year I'd like to see Bath in person & take some myself. Judging from your photography, it's beautiful.

Hicks updates and pics
Thanks so much for all of the Hicks updates and photos. Are you a Hicks descendant? Martin Hermance Hicks was my 3x gr grandfather. I did a lot of research on this line many years ago but now that you have given me so much valuable information I will have to get back to Hicks.
Can I use your photos for my Ancestry site?

Thanks so much
