|Bio and Links|
I was raised in Wells Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania in the beautiful Seeley Creek Valley and still live in the valley 1/8 mile from where I was raised on the New York side of the state line in the town of Southport. My interest in genealogy and history began at a very early age and before I could drive my parents were transporting me to court houses and historical societies to do research. Very few thought of a kid as a serious prospect but I continued to evolve and while at nearby Elmira College I was often researching my ancestry and transcribing markers when I wasn't studying. My paternal side has only been here since the 1800's from England and Wales where as my maternal side goes back to the Mayflower (7 couples and the Hopkins family 3 times), early Dutch, French Huguenots, early Puritans, and early Germans. Most concentrated in New England and Sussex County, New Jersey and thence migrated to Wells Township in Bradford County, Pennsylvania where I descend from Bowman, Cory, Joralemon, Killgore, Noble, Pellet, VanKirk. I have published articles for several historical society journals and have done extensive research on the Loyalist families on the Susquehanna River prior to and during the American Revolution with an article titled "Loyalist Plantations On The Susquehanna." My community involvement extends on both sides of the state line - Past President and current Board of Trustees of Bradford County Historical Society and President Elect, Tioga Point Museum Board and past Secretary, Chemung County Historical Society Board and Second Vice President, Southport Historical Society Board, Schuyler County Historical Society Board, Town of Southport Historian.|

My name is Dennis and I am doing Civil War research on the 11th,Pa. Vol. Inf. Reg. and I wonder if this Martin Warner is the soldier I'm looking for, there is a flag behind the headstone and I was wondering if it is a Civil War G.A.R. marker?

RE: Weston-Wood Farm Cemetery, Tyrone, Schuyler County,
What is the best way to access this cemetery? Do you have any specific directions? My ancestor Rhoda, wife of Asa Austin is buried there and I was thinking of making a sojourn when the weather is better. I am sure if her stone still stands. Do you happen to see it while you were there?
Thanks in advance for any tips you may have.

Thank you for letting me know about picture.
Hi, Pennsylvania ~ I've altered Mrs. Conrad's years, but something is still not right as her marker has her "Eighty something" at death. I saw one person on ancestry.com say she was born in 1781.

Have you given any thought to my message below? I think we should work together to merge the two memorials before someone else notices them and submits them to FindAGrave admin. At that point, the control of the memorials would be out of our hands and one or probably both of us won't like the outcome. Hope to hear soon.
