Bio and Links
Bio Photo My strategy for researching is to find as much documentation as possible about all of my ancestors' brothers, sisters, and in-laws in order to find clues about migrations and adoptions when the records are sparse. Surnames and geography that usually ends in upstate New York but sometimes Ohio:
-Cattaraugus County, New York
-Clinton County, New York
-Allen, Arnold
-Cudworth, Baker
-Strong, Stoddard, Moon
-Pomeroy, Green, Hickok
-Fields (Beauchamp)
-Loisel dit Sinnett
-Davis, Higby
-Aten, White, Wade, Porter, Barnes, Lafferty, Grimes
-Sherrill, Huntting, Miller (Suffolk and Dutchess Counties)

I strongly believe in providing family links and removing duplicate memorials. Please send me additions and corrections.

Peter Snider
I would appreciate if you would kindly turn over the Peter Snider to me as he is family. I am working on linking all the family members and have information to add to this individual.
Peter is listed in the Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol 4 p Serical: 11999 Vol 8 and is buried in Emmanuel Cemetery in Mansfield, Ohio.
You do have some information but I have a great deal more to add.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

RE: Edner Saunders #74548542
Hi Elizabeth:
That is so cool about them being in the same company in the war. I guess not to be surprised as these folks travelled together and moved together to new places. I have a print out of the original Find A Grave page you had posted and it had "Edner" as the spelling. I agree with your opinion about mistranscriptions.

RE: Edner Saunders #74548542
Dear Elizabeth:
I am sorry to write to you with what I think is an error on my part. I did some more research on Edner/Ednah Sanders and I found Edner Sanders listed in the 1810 US census in Haverhill New Hampshire. The name Edner I always assumed was misspelled or a male name. I was looking for Edner's husband Avery and curiously enough I can not find him anywhere in the 1810 US census. I know that his family moved to Peru New York around 1810. But it totally surprised me when I went back to the 1810 census in Haverhill and found "Edner" listed as a female and head of the house. Her age matches the Edner that is buried in Peru/Au Sable NY. so I have seen her name as Edner and also Ednah. Ednah came from the TRANSCRIBED Haverhill town clerk records. I know these records are transcribed because when you look at them on they are all in the same penmanship, for over 50+ years. So I called the town clerk in Haverhill to see if I could get anyone to tell me that they still have the original records that I could look at (or pay someone to look at). They did not know if they still have the records- but what I am saying here is: I think her name is Edner and perhaps the transcription or maybe the original records list her as Ednah maybe incorrect. The only other possibly is Ednah was her nickname. But I think it wise to change the Find a Grave memorial back to Edner, and list Ednah as an alternative name/spelling. To recap, I have found her listed as Edner in the US 1810 census and from your memorial on Find a Grave. I have found her listed as Ednah in transcribed town clerk records. I have found a few leads on her birth and parents while researching Edner, but none while researching Ednah. If I come up with more supportive information I will be sure to get back to you and let you know. Again, sorry about this.

Hi Elizabeth,
Albert Wilson was my grandfather by way of daughter Bertha Viola Wilson Taylor and her husband Robert. Would you be willing to transfer my grandfather to me please?

Thank you,

RE: Edner Saunders #74548542
Hi Elizabeth:
Avery Saunders (alt. spelling and one I have seen more often is: Sanders) was born in Old Chester, NH on Sept 8,1761. This birthdate is in the official town records recorded for Chester, NH. His Revolutionary war deposition states he was born August 1761 and his tombstone with dates would also put him at August 1761- so take your pick about which date is correct. His rank was private and he served in Serg't Ladd's Company, Bedel's Regiment out of Haverhill, NH. He also served in Capt Enoch Chase's Company, 2nd New Hampshire Reg't, Commanded by Lieut. George Reid. His father was Jonathan Sanders and his mother wasSarah Rowell. His wife Ednah's maiden name was Chase. I do not know anymore about Ednah.

Hope this helps.

RE: Edner Saunders #74548542
One last thing- Ednah's husband Avery Sanders was also buried there. He also does not have a tombstone- I am guessing. He fought in the Revolutionary war out of Haverhill NH and served many tours during the war. I have some of his records from the National Archives and there are records stating he served under General Washington! It really is too bad if his headstone is lost, I know there is an importance to recognizing those who fought in the Revolutionary war.

RE: Edner Saunders #74548542
Thank you so much for all you do! It is so great you put this on Find a Grave. I live in Wisconsin and so can't get out to New York to see the cemetery and look at the Old Tombstone transcription books. I was thinking you were going to tell me that you found the information in the old transcription records. I have other ancestors in the Keeseville cemetery and it is the same story. Their tombstones are no longer standing having been destroyed by time. I don't think you missed the tombstones of the Sanders, I think they are gone too by time and weather. However, if you ever wander out here and happen to see them, I would love a photo.

Thank you again and think spring!!

Edner Saunders #74548542
Hi Elizabeth:
My name is Lori Gray and I am doing research on an ancestor. You kindly posted her information on this site. Her name is Ednah Sanders (you have Edner Saunders) and I am wondering where did you get this information? Was it off her tombstone? Is it still standing? Or did you retrieve the information off of an old New York cemetery records book/transcript?
Do you have any other information on her that you can share with me?

Thank you for your response.
