Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in South Buffalo & have been working on our family tree for over 10 years. Since I spend a lot of time in cemeteries I thought it would be nice to help over people who maybe can't get to the cemetery.

Sarah Kester Willson death date
I visited the North Collins Quaker Cemetery several years ago, and noted that her stone was sinking into the ground. I removed a small amount of soil from the base of the stone, and so was able to read her death date, which was 05 Nov 1891.

One of the photos is unreadable and the other is not the correct photo, if you read the dates and age. Jill MacRae

John Lapp, Jr
Hello, Would you be able to link Rev John Lapp's son, John Lapp, Jr. to his parents? Apparently they are buried with the Schenck ancestors. These are my children's ancestors (Lapps, Schworms, Schencks,Finks).

I don't know where you found the wonderful Lapp obituaries...I have a few but you have a great collection. Perhaps there is one for John Lapp, Jr. He was a farmer and he served in the Civil War.

George Sisson
According to Sisson family information that I have had handed down to me, George Sisson built the first cheese factory in Erie County. Just thought that might be an interesting note to put in his bio if you're interested.
He and his wife Huldah Potter were my great grandmother's parents. She was Rachel Sisson b 1843 in Collins Center, NY. She married William Fitch Munger and when he died she married Charles Roger Eddy in Queensbury, NY.
From the number of Sisson family memorials you have created, I'm assuming you are a descendant of the family also.
I was wondering if you happen to know where his parents are buried?
1186. Stephen SISSON (Nathaniel , William , Jonathan , James , Richard ) was born 30 Jul (1787 or)1789 in Queensbury, Warren Co., New York. He and his brother, Nathaniel, moved to Collins Center, Erie County, NY, in 1814. He died 17 Aug 1869 in Collins, Erie Co., New York.
Stephen married (1) Rachel LAPHAM, daughter of Stephen LAPHAM and Rachel HUSSEY, on 8 Apr 1810. Rachel was born about 1785.
Any information you might have would be appreciated! Ginni Combs
