Beamer, Curry, Ebecke, Hahn, Jerome, McFarland, Napp and Porter

And these families on my husband's side:
Batchelder, High, Krecklow, Lane, Northup, McClain, Rathbun and Tennant

Most of the memorials I manage are family members (although some quite distant). I welcome any additions and corrections.

I'm happy to transfer any memorial to a closer family member.

Thank you to all those members who have taken headstone photos.

RE: Luke Milmine

Unfortunately there are no markers which contains the names of those remains not identified. It would have been nice if they had done that, but I am not sure that it would even be possible today.

RE: William Rathbun
Cathy-I am still entering info on the cemetery, and am entering the stones as they read...I believe most say Rathbun. I have a map of the cemetery from 1878 that really helped with locating and confirming stones. kathy

William Rathbun
I added a photo of William Rathbun/Rathbone today. I see you recently added the memorial. He is surrounded by Rathbun's but his stone is spelled Rathbone. Interesting!

RE: McClain headstone photo
Went to the cemetery today. Talked to the sexton, he checked their book. All they have is who purchased the plots, John E. McClain, no other information. Sorry, Linda

RE: Robert Curry headstone
You're very welcome. Yes - They are buried in the same grave with her name on the back of the stone - I did the links for you.

RE: Christian Fogleson
There's no indication that there is a stone in Wilson(we've been there). I think it was a question of spelling with Wilson and Williams and both of them being in Washington Twp.. Williams is very sandy soil and has not been cared for, so many stones are down and we know there have to be some that have simply sunk beneath the sand. We didn't have permission to probe so were able to just photograph the ones still showing and those who were partially buried. The trustee finally went in a cleared some of the area of yucca and some overgrowth, but it's still in sad condition for being such a historical cemetery for this county. Perhaps her stone may still be found I hope!

RE: Christian Fogelson
I sent an email to the person that has possession of that memorial with the information that his stone was found in Williams. The name is not spelled correctly according to the spelling on his stone so it may not have been found prior to finding the stone to verify. I hope it is "fixed", but it is up to the contributors now.

John William Schram
Not sure if you rec'd my message but on page 68 of the Schram Book the wrong parents are cited for John William Schram (B. 1773). The Pelham Township records were discovered after the book was published.

John Willam Schram

Yes I do have information on John William Schram and Margaret Beamer. It is as follows:

John William went by his second name William. He raised Upper Canada Land Petition LAC S Bundle Miscellaneous 1788-1794 Petition Number 35 and was granted 400 acres. He settled on lots 15 and 16 on concession 1 in Pelham Township. From the Pelham township Papers the following is found: " Grant to William Scram, son of Frederick Schram a UEL, Land Board Certificate dated 1794 and marked SUE 1796. In 1800 a certificate by Wm Clench states that "Willam Schram of Pelham Township is the son of Frederick Schram of Louth, an enrolled UEL, having served in Butler's Rangers, said child having been young when he came in with his mother". The Pelham Township papers were the key to determining his lineage.
There were two Frederick Schram's who fought with the Butler's Rangers. One received land in Louth Township while the other received land in Barton Township. I have information on both.
Frderick Schram of Louth was a Cpl in Butler's Rangers. He was born on 1746 in Loonenburg NY and married Engeltje (Angelica Klauw) and was the son of Johann Wilhelm Schram and Catharina Lehman (2nd generation German immigrants who came to North America in the Palatine Immigration of 1710 to New York). He settled on Lot 7, Broken Front, Louth Township, (now St. Catharines). He was buried in the Schram Tinlin Cemetery. The cemetery was actually called the Schram Family Cemetery and resides on land owned by Frederick Schram.
The Schram Family book details much of the Schram history in Germany and New York. It can be found on the Norfolk Genealogy website run by John Cardiff. The internet link is:

To access the book,
1. from the home page, click on menu item "Contributions"
2. on the List of Contributions web page, click on Schram Family History (alphabetically, currently 9th up from the end of the list.)

Appendix A in the book lists a family tree that can be used as a guide when reading the book. If you find the book useful feel free to make a copy and pass it onto whoever you think would be interested in its contents.
