John Cornell FAG Memorial

I received you suggestions regarding John Cornell. I am not a Cornell family researcher and you are and seem to be actively working on the line. For those reasons, I will transfer management of this memorial over to you.

Hi Tom,

The info was sent as an edit (I wish I was smart enough to search edits rather than scroll through!) by a Kenyon family researcher- Marilyn Kenyon, Psy.D. (#47005688). The Cornells are buried with the Kenyons, in fact the cemetery is sometimes called "Kenyon" as it was their family burial ground on their farm before it was expanded into an "association" cemetery. I didn't really question the edit and I assume Marilyn would have the info you need.

I have many Cornell relatives that start with Philip G Cornell, B 22 Sept, 1832 in Parma, Monroe NY and died in Oswego, Oswego, NY 25 Nov, 1909. Philip married my G-Great grandmother's sister Sarah Spencer. Philip fought in the CW, a member of the 8th NY heavy artillery. This unit was posted in Baltimore, and until the disastrous battle of Cold Harbor, they guarded the Armory there. Philip, being older, moved his wife and children to Baltimore during the war and they remained there until the late 1880's, when they returned to western NY. Philip's parents are unknown to me, might you have an idea who they were?

Good luck with Susannah! and let me know if I need to make edits.

The name came from her obituary, which has been added to her memorial.

RE: Daniel Cornell, #46077108
Hello again. I just wanted to share with you that I had left a comment in advising that the gravestone picture was not that of Daniel's. Two people have responded thanking me for the information and to advise that they have deleted the picture in their family trees, one person being the original person who posted it. So hopefully I have nipped this in the bud before it got worse.

Again, thanks so much for letting me know of my error! It is so easy for a mistake to multiply on the internet.

RE: Copetown Cemetery
Hello again. I have not been able to find to answer the question of why his middle name is Drake. I have not heard what happened to them in Waterloo, but I would love to hear it!

Scott's name I am well acquainted with, often "crossing" his path on this website. Scott has done some fantastic work, please pass along a warm thank-you.

If I have created memorial pages for people of your family, please feel free to ask me to transfer them to you! I believe that memorial pages should be managed by family members.
Warm regards,

RE: Daniel Cornell, #46077108
Hello. I have deleted the photograph of the gravestone as you requested. Sadly, I think this is going to keep happening as I found the picture in The picture was attached to the gentleman you speak of. So just a heads up - others may make the same mistake I did. What I will do is put a comment on the picture in ancestry stating that I have it on good authority that that is not his gravestone. Hope this helps stop this problem.
Great chatting,
Regards, Patricia

more Kenyonville Cemetery
Sorry, but I didn't keep track of where I came across the lists. Many were on multiple Websites as I recall. If you just google it I would think it's still there somewhere--but definitely on the Internet. I did use some printed records for some smaller cemeteries where some of my distant cousins are buried.

One other thing I do rememember was that most such lists contained no indication of where they got their information. About a third did, and most were a combination of "reading" the cemetery, old cemetery or church records, and old newspaper obituaries.

Kenyonville Cemetery
Many of the cemetery lists I used contained extra info about family, age, birth and death places, etc. This was one of them...
