Will you please answer a few questions for me? I'm afraid I have tracked down the wrong BetteMae.
Was her mother's name Rose Althea, last name could have been Sheffler or Barton, from Pa.
She is buried in the same plot as some of the Shefflers and the birth date is right, but some of the other info just doesn't fit. It would be easier to e-mail me at email@example.com.
|Carol Page Tilson||RE: The Colvin Connection|
There were TWO Erastus J. Colvins, born about 20 years apart. Both had Vermont roots and removed with their folks to New York.
The older Erastus J. [b. 24 Mar 1818] was the son of Benjamin Colvin and Ben's first wife Elizabeth M. Fiske [aka Fisk]. He's the one who married Rispah P. Fish [aka Fisk].
The other, younger Erastus J., son of Eseck B. Colvin [Memorial #67614170] and Harriet Joiner [#67614370], was born about 1838 in Vermont or New York [censuses disagree]. He seems to have had at least two wives.
In 1850, Erastus J., age 12, and his family lived in Frankfort, Herkimer Co., NY; the family had moved to Essex Co., NY before 1860. On 1855 New York State Census, Erastus Colvin, 16, b. VT, was enumerated as nephew in the household of his uncle, Willard Joiner and Willard's wife, Lucy.
Where he was for 1860-1870 censuses unknown. In he was in Moriah, Essex Co., NY with wife, "Carry", age 46, b. VT. No children in the household. In 1900, this Erastus J. was still living in Moriah Twp., Essex Co., NY with a wife Clarissa, b. June 1844, NY.
The census taker has taken pains to write that Erastus J. and Clarissa had been married for 3 [or 8?] days. While it could be a 3 or an 8, the "days" was very clearly written. Clarissa declared no children and there were none in the household. In 1910, Clarissa R. Colvin was head of household in Moriah, Essex Co., VT, a widow and dressmaker.
Erastus J.'s occupation was as a dealer in marble, supplying headstones for the County of Essex for soldiers, sailors and marines. He had a contract with the county. [From items in "The Elizabethtown Post," Elizabethtown, NY, Essex Co., NY, published from 1882 to 1920, found on Northern New York Library Network site, nnyln.com].
Hope this helps answer your question.

Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to visit with you about this family. We must be distantly related cousins.

I am happy to make transfers so posts can be improved by those who have more information.
|Ed Poulin||Norman Hayward|
Thanks for the name of Norman's first wife. I'll add the info to his biography.
|Nadeen Sobottka||Donald Garigle @ Forest Home Cem., Milw., WI|
Hi Jan, at first I thought perhaps I made a typo, but then I realized that you wanted me to add Donald's middle name as Dundas. It has been added. If you'd like a transfer, please advise. Regards, Nadeen
|Patricia Cousens||Ralph W Clarke|
Jan, just to let you know I have transferred the Ralph W. Clarke family to you. Their son Kent was a friend of my husband's, when we went to Milford he wanted to visit his gravesite. I know that he left 3 young children and a wife, my husband said she was a cake decorator.
|Mona Rhone||Catherine Bowman|
Thank you for the information. I have made the corrections to her memorial.
I live in Hamden, CT, and took the pictures at the cemetery while visiting my husband's family who are buried there. I know nothing of the burial book but I'm sure it's very interesting.
I am very happy to transfer to you. If there are more let me know.
