St. Joseph's OLD Cemetery, Wayland, NY
If you are interested in one of the memorials, at this cemetery, please send me an email with the name of the person you are requesting included. I will get back to you as soon as I can. I have photographed all of the headstones in the cemetery and with the exception of persons still living, ALL are posted on the memorial. If there isn't a photo on the memorial of a headstone, there isn't a headstone for that person. Plot numbers for this cemetery are not recorded anywhere except with ME. So if you need info about a plot number, please feel free to ask me.
First digit is the section number 1-4. Sections are numbered East to west starting at Deiter Rd.
Next 2 digits are the row number, also numbered East to West, except for section 4 which the rows are numbered North to South from State Route 63.
The 4th digit is 1 or 2 letters. If there are more than 24 graves in a row there are 2 letters and the first is either A or B. (I & O are skipped). Headstones in each row are number from the driveway across back of the cemetery, toward State Route 63 except section 4. Where graves are lettered west to east starting from the backside of section 3.
If there is another digit at the end of the plot number, there are more than 2 names on the same headstone. Again if you have a question about plot numbers, please email ME. NB: The Parish Office has NO info about plot numbers at this cemetery.
In St. Joseph's New Cemetery & St. Pius V New Cemetery in Cohocton, the plots are numbered simply Sect ... Then a Roman Numeral .. I. II, III, IV, V Then a one - three digit number for the site & last the grave number. In St. Joseph's they go from 1 thru 8. At St.Pius they are numbered sequentially thru the section.

Margaret Moore, Old St. Joes
Margaret Moore, Old St. Joseph's Cemetery, Wayland, NY. Can you tell us what years this cemetery was in use? And, who is buried around Margaret Moore? We are seeking our 2X Grandma who vanishes between the 1855 NY State Census and the 1860 Federal Census in Horesheads (Elmira) and Binghamton. In the 1920s we find her grandsons living in Wayland and having children. Her husband (perhaps common-law) was Thomas Scales, a shoemaker. He lived 1818 - 1901. We believe she was born in 1818 or 1820 based on Census records. Thanks

I listed the cemeteries in my area, but I don't personally go looking for information in order to fill in the blanks. If family , friends or interested individuals care to give me information, I will include it on the memorial in question. Thanx, Robin Cleland

Vandalia Cemetery
I asked my cousin, who does not live far from the cemetery for directions and here they are. Directions to Vandalia Cemetery - I-79 to mile marker 99 (US 33), east on US 33 about 4 to 5 miles to Georgetown Road, south on Georgetown Road about 6 - 8 miles. There will be a sign indicating Vandalia. Slow down!! An old paved road to the left, about 2/3 mile is the cemetery on the left, UP A SIZABLE CLIMB,

RE: Vandalia Cemetery
My husband is sure he has the information and will look for it. Believe me when I say we would never have found it, had it not been for the old guy we saw in his front yard. From the road the entrance looks like an old gravel drive way going up a hill and yes there are trees preventing a better view of it. It is a single lane gravel road and if you did not know what you were looking for you would never find it. There is not a sign anywhere. We found it and filmed the graves as most of the graves belong to relatives. It is near Buckhannon, WV.

Vandalia Cemetery
Vandalia Cemetery is located in Lewis County, West Virginia. It is located on a hill overlooking the town of Vandalia, in southern road in the northern part of Vandalia. This is the location that is given when you look it up however that does not tell you much. My huLewis County. The cemetery is along the Skin Creek sband and I photographed it in 2012 and we had a hard time finding it. It is on a hill next to a farm house. There is no sign telling you a cemetery is even near by, just this old gravel road going up a hill. The only reason we even found it was due to seeing a farmer out in his yard and we asked him and he pointed over his shoulder and said "up there". It is pretty well taken care of once you find it. I have good directions and if I can locate them I will send them to you. Were you going to visit the cemetery and do you have family there? If you were planning a trip you could always inquire with any of the funeral homes in Parkersburg and they would know it.

Thanks for the contact for John's sister. I'll pass on contacting her though. My experience has been that folks uninvolved in genealogy tend to react suspiciously to inquisitive strangers or even acquaintances.

John's nieces Wendy and Cindy, both gone now, were childhood friends of mine.

I've transferred John's memorial to you. Hope you find his grave; if he wasn't cremated.
