Bio and Links
I have been doing ancestry research for many years; that is how I found this website.

Willing to help anyone with picture requests but would prefer if you ask to use the pictures taken by me for ancestry use.

Please use the edit tab when suggesting any changes. It makes it easier for both of us. When requesting a transfer, also use the edit tab using "suggest any other correction or addition". Please be sure to include your FindaGrave number with your request to make the transfer go smoothly. Thanks.

RE: Union Mills
Thank you so much. I'm so happy that you live close by, and have been so help for over a year now. I will make a list of the most important finds. Any long distant pictures, and the close up picture of the graves would be great. I have researched this cemetery so much, and it's a very tight knit community in my family tree and I'm finding that almost every family is connected in some way to Samuel & Maria Cole.

Union Mills
Would you have time to find more request in Union Mills? I thought I found a couple that found some for me, then to find out they don't live in the area. I really would like to wrap up my research. Do you know any other local volunteers that would have time to document Union Mills Broadalbin for me? I know summer time is better that the snowy season. :)

Walter Harry Swank
Diora was the second wife of Walter Harry Swank.
His memorial is # 102074564
He died as a result of an accidental drowning. He was gathering coal in the river bed and a sudden storm came up and swept him away.

He died on 19 Jun 1915.
Very sad that both of her husband's died in sudden and tragic situations.

Found it - on the Columbia County Historical page - W.H. Swank married Dora Klinger on 19 Apr 1913.
Will let you know more details, when I run this information.

Sorry my fingers were faster than my brain.

I will look in the Columbia County Historical Society Web page and see if I can find any record of a marriage.
It must have been very short. Melvin died in 1906. In 1910 she is still listed as "Klinger" on the census, and on 1920 she is listed as "Swank" as a widow. I am thinking that she was someone's second wife and whomever he was - he was buried with his first wife.

Thank you for pointing out the correction needed for Prudence Comstock in the Josiah Maples memorial. I have made the change.
