Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have worked on my family trees and others for over 30 years. My current interest is in Schoharie County NY history, more specifically the town of Summit where I live. I compiled, published and printed books on Schoharie County One Room Schoolhouses, The Schoharie Alps Town of Summit History, Murders and Funky Stuff in Schoharie County, Schoharie County Emergency Medical Services, Schoharie County Clubs & Lodges etc. and Spanish American War Veterans with connections to Schoharie County. If interested in purchasing any of them please let me know. My next book will be Schoharie County Women in Suffrage/Politics.
I got started taking pics of grave stones in looking for Civil War Veterans monuments. Now I take pics of any grave stones with an emphasis on all Veterans. I can spot a Span-Am flag holder in a cemetery from yards away.
My goal is to preserve any piece of history I can get my hands on, particularly in light of how much was lost in our area during Huricanes Irene & Lee.

Eltons in Schoharie Co
Hi Karen,
A very big thank you for your tombstone pictures of so many of my Eltons buried in Schoharie County. I have finally gotten a good internet connection in Little Elm Texas, and am looking at catching up on
Findagrave. I am sitting here with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes, astonished at seeing stones that I never thought I would see. Your hard work is much appreciated from deep in the heart of Texas, where many of my branch wound up.

Susan R Perhala-Horry County Cemetery Registration
contact in Nassau
I've agreed to help my friend Susan Hayes Hatcher in South Carolina, find a contact in the Bahamas, specifically Nassau. If you can help please refer me to someone who is on site in Nassau. Susan Hayes Hatcher wants to visit the records archives in Nassau....someone she could communicate with, someone who could give her some tips, suggestions, etc. on sources, locations of information. I'd appreciate hearing back from you. Basically I'm looking for a Nassau contact, someone who you might turn to for direction, help, etc.

Obit Wording
Hi Karen, How would you interpret the wording from a NYC newspaper obit "...interment Saturday at his birthplace at Esperance, in Schoharie County".

I figure it means the Esperance Rural Cemetery as four members of his family are buried there and I can find no record of a family cemetery. Paul

Jefferson Cemetery burials
Hi Karen, I am pulling together some information on Gallups in the Old Jefferson Cemetery and I realized Jesse Brockway (your memorial #115072293) has a duplicate memorial at #75685370, where he is listed as "burial unknown." My interest is that his first wife was a Gallup, Abigail Gallup, and she is buried with him in Old Jefferson Cemetery. The wife listed on the duplicate memorial is his second wife, Sally Finch, who he married after Abigail died; Sally appears with him in census records, the last one being 1875, when they were living with his son Ezekiel in Schoharie County.

Sally is apparently buried in the Bogardus family cemetery, Greene (#132008718). According to her findagrave page her grave marker says she died in 1874, but it must have been 1875; she is listed as the wife of Jesse Brock[a]way.

obit trick
How do you get the obituary docs so clear? I have several that I tried to scan and they come out blurry and too small and sometimes upsidedown

Educated Assumption
Hi Karen, I found a civil war soldier, McKendra Kellogg, who died in Richfield Springs in 1921. His obit says he was sent to Williamstown, Oswego County for burial. He was a native of Williamstown having moved to Schoharie Cty some 50 yrs before.

He's not on Find A Grave. I checked Owsego Cty and there are 122 Kellogg's buried there.

BUT there are 10 Kelloggs buried in the Williamstown Cemetery, they are the only Kellogg's buried in Williamstown. Per Ancestry . com two of them are his siblings (others moved out of the area and never returned, dead or alive). No other cemetery there holds any Kellogg's. I'm wondering if there is any logic to assuming that is where he is as his obit said he would be buried in Williamstown. What do you think? Paul
