Sullivan Purcell
RE: Fulton History site
Hi Peter - I can't stay away! Actually, I can't resist adding obituaries when I come across them while doing research and the Liberty Register published so many. And of course, obituaries lead to edits... Speaking of edits, do you know who liberated the Kiersted-swan cemetery? I was happy to see that it was finally listed separately.

Thanks for the info on The PJ Gazette! We were back in NYS during the summer and I actually stopped at the PJ library to copy obits. They have a nice obituary name index for the microfilm of the paper. I wished I had more time to spend there, so your information is a great boon.

Gray's Cemetery - Fallsburg
Hi Peter, I did some online research and it appears that the Sullivan County Potters field in adjacent to Gray's cemetery. Do you know if this is true? Henry Hughes was at the Sullivan County Farm for the last summer of his life. From the records I found it appears that the caretakers did not know he had two sisters living Westchester County.

And thank you for this hint on fixing my page - it worked. Pat

Ken Margison
RE: Margison
Thanks- I found them last night! Ezra and his family. I've contacted the person who listed them. One is listed as Albert L Margison, but his name was Abram. Ezra's birth year bounced around between 1814 and 1818 from the census' so it's nice to find a concrete date to go by.

Gray's Cemetery - Fallsburg
Hi Peter, I heard from the town of Fallsburg. The burial permits start in 1931; since Henry Hughes died in 1916 this is a dead end. The town clerk said there is no caretaker and that the cemetery is not affiliated with a church.
Thank you for all your help with this - I appreciate your assistance.

Gray's Cemetery - Fallsburg
Hi Peter, I spoke with the town clerk at Fallsburg. It turns out that they have burial permits so they may be able to tell me the location of Henry Hughes' grave in Gray's Cemetery. I'll let you know what I find out. Thanks again for all your help. Pat

RE: Gray's Cemetery - Fallsburg
Hi Peter; thank you for the link. I found the obituary about a week ago! I have been looking for it for about 2 years now. It confirms that this was the correct Henry Hughes as James Moore was his nephew.

I sent a note to the Fallsburg Town Clerk to see if they know who would have the cemetery records. I'll let you know if I find the record holder.

Appreciate your help and thanks again for the link. Pat

Gray's Cemetery - Fallsburg
Hi Peter, thank you for the quick reply. My great uncle Henry Hughes died at the Sullivan County Farm and was buried in Gray's Cemetery according to his death certificate. He was a widower and I am trying to figure out who his wife was. I'll try the town and see if they know who has the records.

I doubt there is a stone. He had only two surviving sisters living in Yonkers - one was very ill and the other (my grandmother) was caring for her as well as taking care of four small children and a newborn at that time. Thank you again for your help. I'll let you know if there are records somewhere. Pat

Gray's Cemetery - Fallsburg
Hi Peter, one of my relatives is buried in Gray's Cemetery. I am trying to find out if there are any family members buried with him. Is there an office or listing for burials at Grays? He was a widower and died at the county home so I do not think there was a stone. Thank you for your help. Pat
