Bio and Links
I have been interested in genealogy since I was a teenager. My grandmother always said her husband, my grandfather, was from Norway. It wasn't until many years later that I realized she meant Norway, NY and that his family was actually German! While, I still haven't made much progress on the Wohler family line, I have been able to go back many generations on other lines (Preston, Hodge, Grower, Woods, Baker). Many times the information was found due to someone taking the time to make a cemetery transcription or cutting an article from an old newspaper. I work full-time and have two young children (they have made numerous trips to our local cemeteries!) so most of my research is local or on-line, so getting help through F-A-G is a tremendous help. I hope to help someone by getting some photos or adding the burial record that will help someone scale their brick wall.
I am not related to most of these memorials! I willingly transfer to reconnect them with their families.

Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)

RE: George Martin Grower
While it appears that living on "Bull Hill", Fairview would have been the logical choice I found something that put him in Wheelertown on or about March 10, 2015. Unfortunately, three days later, March 13, 2015 I lost my youngest brother, Tom, at age 56 to a heart attack. He was the first to break our "family circle" of 11 siblings. Then in April I lost the father of my children. I went into a tailspin of grief that I am starting to come out of.
I seem to remember a reference to someone else buried in Wheelertown that led me to that decision. I am reviewing my files to find that tidbit of information. My family connection is through his sister, Arris. It appears yours is through his daughter, Nellie.
My sister-in-law, Joy, Tom's wife, and I have been trying since 1990 to find some documentation for Wheelertown Cemetery. I keep searching the New York State Library in Albany in hopes that I will find something other than the couple of sheets at the Herkimer Historical Society. So far no luck. I will contact you when I find that tidbit of information.
FYI- last year Joy and I photographed every visible stone in Fairview.

please provide a source to add the parents to Robert Hodge - memorials with parents from 1780's etc I won't add with out them as I get so many people who tell me so much differing info based on their Ancestry tree, myhertiage etc etc on one memorial

thanks :)
