Wow, good research on your part, glad you got them together Thanks
|Tom Schoening||John Rorabaugh|
Ann: You have posted John Rorabaugh (1811-1879 - ID # 14816221 - do Your records show anything about a marriage to Mary Jane Moore-Schoening.
Mary Jane was first married to Frederick Schoening and after his death in 1854 she married his brother Henry Ferdinand Schoening who died in 1864. Family notes show that she married a John Rorabaugh. Mary Jane is interred in the New Millport Cemetery with the Schoening's however her gravestone does in fact show the surname Rorabaugh.
Should You concur with the above, would it be ok to link Mary Jane to John ???
Looking forward to Your input.
Regards - Tom Schoening

|Tara Tench Martin||Mary Martin, Cecil Martin and Audrey Martin|
Are you related to them? I see that you left flowers on Audrey and Cecil in April and then on Marys in July...
|Kim Thomas||Waldo Gorton|
You left flowers for Waldo Gorton. Are you related to him?
Thank you so much for turning the four Jillson memorials over to me. They are very distant relatives but as you said probably closer to me than you.
I am always looking for information on any Jillson I locate because I have am always trying to connect to the correct lineage.

John Wilson's wife
I am wondering if you have information concerning John's second wife, Emily? Do you know her maiden name, her parents and where she was originally from? I am trying to decide if she is the daughter of one of my ancestors.

----Sorry it took me so long, it has been a crazy last 4 months-- You must be talking about Dr. John Wilson(my 1st cousin 5x removed) I have never found a marriage record for him for either marriage but Verl Williams is his 2nd wife, I have been told that John Williams & Eliza Jane Murphy are her parents, but I cant prove it. I only have someone elses guess to go by.

HIS UNEXPECTED DEATH OCCURRED ON SATURDAY
He Was One of the Oldest, Best Known and Most Highly Esteemed Citizens of Newark
- Other Mortuary
The death of Mr. Orrin Blackmar occurred on Saturday at the private hospital of Dr. Whitbeck, in Rochester. His demise was very unexpected, word having reached here the same morning that he was improving nicely, consequently it was a great shock and surprise to the citizens and intimate friends of Mr. Blackmar. About two months ago he was taken to Rochester to undergo an operation for abscess of the liver, a very serious undertaking for a man of Mr. Blackmar's age; but it was very successful and his complete and speedy recovery was looked forward to. About a month ago he had a chill and sinking spell, followed by others at intervals of a week or more, the last one occurring on Saturday and from which he did not recover but peacefully passed away. None of the family was present at the time, as his recovery, instead of demise, was looked for. His niece, Mrs. Dickinson, who resides in Rochester, reached his bedside a few minutes after he had expired. His son Abel, who was on his way from New York to Rochester, received a telegram at Albany that his father was dead. Bright's disease was the cause of Mr. Blackmar's death.
Orrin Blackmar was born at Freehold, Greene county, N.Y. on July 30, 1819. Abel Blackmar, his father, was a former resident of Connecticut. Deceased removed to Newark in 1835, and married Harriet Hurd, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Orville Hurd of this town, on November 2, 1847, the wedding ceremony being solemnized in the present residenc of Mrs. Cozzens, Willow avenue. Mrs. Blackmar died August 25th, 1854. There were four children: Roxana, who died young, and the surviving sons, Abel E. and Orville Hurd, of New York, and daughter, Miss Anna, who resides here. Mr. Blackmar is also survived by a brother and sister, Edwin and Mrs. Lavina Allerton, of this place.
After removing to Newark, Mr. Blackmar attended school in Palmyra for a time and then entered the employ of his brothers, Ranson and Esbon, who conducted a general merchandise business in the store now occupied by A.E. Williams. He afterwards formed a partnership with Horace Blackmar, under the firm name of H. & O. Blackmar. Thomas Barnes then became interested and the name was changed to Blackmar & Barnes.
When Mr. Barnes and Horace Blackmar retired in 1855, Orrin Blackmar formed a partnership with his nephew, Dighton H. Winans, the firm name being Blackmar & Winans. In 1862 Mr. Winans retired to enter the army and Mr. Blackmar carried on the business alone until 1864 when he joined with Rufus Reed and W.T. Barney. On account of ill health Mr. Blackmar withdrew in 1866, and for some years devoted his time to his family and friends, in educating his children, who were very dear to him, and in reading, travel, and field sports. He again entered active business in 1878, associating himself with F.M. Alllerton, in the produce business.
Mr. Blackmar was a man of broad charity, a consistent member of the Presbyterian church, and for thirty years an elder. For a number of years he was superintendent of the Sabbath school and was always an earnest worker in both school and church. He carried his religion into his home and business. He had the utmost faith in the goodness of human nature and exercised a great and beneficent influence over the young, who loved him for a good and true man, and as an example to which they could look up to and follow. None knew nor appreciated his worth more than those who were intimately associated with him in business. His uprightness, integrity, manliness and magnanimity were of such a high and pure quality that he commanded, to the day of his death, the esteem, confidence and best wishes of all who were associated with him. Our whole community mourn his loss and sympathize with the bereaved family in their affliction.
The funeral services were held at the house on Tuesday afternoon and the attendance of relatives, friends and acquaintances was very large. The services were conducted by Rev. A.P. Burgess, of the Presbyterian church, of which Mr. Blackmar had been a member so long. At the close of the pastor's remarks, Rev. F.F. Ellenwood, of New York, made a few well-chosen remarks. There was a great profusion of flowers, the offerings of near friends and relatives. During the continuance of the ceremonies all business places were closed in respect to the deceased.
Among those present at the funeral from out of town were: Rev. F.F. Ellenwood, brother-in-law of deceased, New York; E. Hurd, brother-in-law, New York, Dighton H. Winans, nephew, Chicago; Mrs. P.A. Dickinson, niece, Rochester; F.W. Dickinson, nephew, Rochester; H.D. Winans, nephew, New York; C.F. Sternberg and wife, nephew and niece, Buffalo; Mrs. John P. Vail, cousin, Geneva.

Thanks for the geneology info on Blackmar-Winans. I think an Anna Blackmar married a Winans.
