Bio Photo I would be happy to transfer anyone, other than family, to you. Just contact me. And you are very welcome to use my marker photos in your family tree without asking, but my curiosity would like to know which ones are being used.

A special thank you to Tom C for helping with information on Oakwood Cemetery residents. We have entered every name from the cemetery records up through December 2013 into findagrave to hopefully help you in your search. Thanks Tom!

I am working on Onondaga Valley Cemetery Section 9. I have entered all names from sections 1-8 and have photographed what was available. I am identifying those missing a marker so that you will know.

I will have to contact Edit for a merge. His death was a sad state of affairs.

RE: Orilla Brockway
You are very welcome. I also have grandparents that were Brockways. I would love to share info but it may take me a bit of time since I am secretary/Treasurer of this cemetery and we are in the middle of catching up our maps and taking pictures of all monuments. About 70% completed.

RE: photos
Well, if you find a list & want me to transfer memorials from St. Procopius let me know. I, too would like to see them in the correct cemetery.

RE: photos
Thanks, a lot. I think when the area was photographed they were all dumped in together. I will note that to Jack when I send him the file. I've actually added one person because his death record definitely said St. Mary's. What a mess. We'll leave them as is and someone will have to go out & straighten that one from that end. Appreciate your help.

RE: Sarah Stewart
It is a beautiful marker and I would really like to know who carved it. Sarah was the daughter of Sally Forman and William Sabine--she would have been Joshua Forman's niece. She married Royal Stewart (who was the postmaster of Onondaga Hollow at the time) in 1832. I think he may have been married before and had at least 1 child with his first wife. In 1835 he went to Chicago to practice law along with his brother-in-law William H Sabine Jr. (Assume she went too--can never tell with directory or census info) Their next census info is 1840 in Cleveland--with 3 children (at least 1 probably hers)Sarah apparently died in Cleveland in 1843 (cause unknown) This information comes from the Erie Street Cemetery files, some provided by a man named "Gresser", who was the sexton end of 19th century. That cemetery is partially closed down (like Rose Hill) and a lot of people were exhumed and moved. There is a notation that someone was disinterred and moved to Syracuse in 1912. (Sarah?) If that date is correct, there should be a burial permit associated with the Onondaga Valley cemetery somwhere in the town files.
Interesting story.

Thank you so much for doing that. After searching so long, it is amazing to finally see it. My mother, who is almost 85 yrs has never seen it, so it means a lot.
Thanks again,
Kathy Nash

John Redington
I do not remember if I contacted you or not but I am writing an article in John Redington for the St. Lawrence County Historical Association's Quarterly and I was wondering if I could use your photo of his grave, I will give you credit.
