I have worked on my family trees and others for over 30 years. My current interest is in Schoharie County NY history, more specifically the town of Summit where I live. I compiled, published and printed books on Schoharie County One Room Schoolhouses, The Schoharie Alps Town of Summit History, Murders and Funky Stuff in Schoharie County, Schoharie County Emergency Medical Services and Schoharie County Clubs & Lodges etc. If interested in purchasing any of them please let me know. My next book will be Spanish American War Veterans with connections to Schoharie County.|
I got started taking pics of grave stones in looking for Civil War Veterans monuments. Now I take pics of any grave stones with an emphasis on all Veterans. I can spot a Span-Am flag holder in a cemetery from yards away.
My goal is to preserve any piece of history I can get my hands on, particularly in light of how much was lost in our area during Huricanes Irene & Lee.
You can also find my website at schohariehistorian.com.

Hi Karen, hope all of the snow has melted. Sylvester served in the 134th. He enlisted in Cobleskill; but was born in Summit, and lived in Summit after the war. The 1890 Vet's register showed him still living there. He, and his parents, Philip B. Neer & Pamlia (Pamela?) Spitzer have disappeared into the myst's of time. Do you have any idea what became of them? Paul

Hi Karen; thank you for posting William VV's obituary; where might I ask did you find it (which news source and date?) thank you again!!
|Lisa||RE: Richmondville Cemetery|
Thanks for the quick response. Sometime when you are snowbound and bored, could you take a look at the postings I made to the Richmondville Village Cemetery to check accuracy. I suspect that the list I uncovered was not as accurate as I hoped. Have a wonderful and warm evening....heavy snow here in southern Missouri with freezing rain tomorrow. I am so tired of this. Take care. Lisa

Karen, I need your help. Are there two Richmondville Cemeteries? If so, have I posted incorrectly to the Richmondville Village one? Any help you can give me would be appreciated. I will delete incorrect information immediately.
Thank you for all that you do and for helping me. Lisa

Hi Karen, I submitted an edit adding his full date and place of death. Source, his pension information. Interesting story connected to this guy. He was the bugler of the regiment who was wounded by gunshot to the left arm July 1 63 at Gettysburg. He tried to learn how to play the bugle with his right hand but was unsuccessful in trying to do so. I love these interesting little stories you find in history. Of course I don't think I'll ever find a story to match that of Corp. James Brownlee. Best to you. Paul

Hi Karen, thanks for the info on the clubs and lodges publication. Probably a little too specific for me (would have been real interesting to have been a fly on the wall in one, just image the stories you would have heard). How about more general Schoharie history? Paul
