Bio and Links
Bio Photo Started looking for family roots and building a family tree. wow!, can this lead in all directions. Wales line mostly. but also Brown. and others connected to my wife and my family. If I have recorded a memorial of a person you are related to, and they are not part of my, or my wife's extended family, I will happily transfer management over to you, just ask! I do this to help others find their family and links. My pictures are free to use in your family research, Just ask! Will try my best to add additions, or corrections, info as I have time, especialy with large bio's, please use "edit" tab, Larry.
Remember, memorials that I have added, some of them are from other readings, or cemetery records, and I have not personally checked each memorial out for accuracy, and I have found errors when I take pictures of stones. So use the memorials that I have added to help find your ancestors, but remember there may be inaccuracies, especially with name spelling, dates, ages, or maybe they have a stone in two different cemetery's, or have been moved to a different cemetery. ( more common than you would think, especially with the older cemetery's and stones).
"Note": Cortland Rural Cemetery, (RFAC), abbreviation for: (from field research, must have been)" Removed From Another Cemetery", (no information as to original cemetery), and placed in Cortland Rural Cemetery after it opened, around 1854-1855. At least three earlier Grave yards in Cortland were removed to Cortland Rural Cemetery, in late 1860"s, including the Village Cemetery that was moved to make way for the Normal School, and was where the County Court House now stands. Also, Methodist Burial Grounds. These entries are from the Cortland Rural Cemetery records on file at; and research at; the Cortland Historical Society, and contain all the information that I have found so far. The only problem is, we may have earlier readings of other cemetery's that record these same burials before they were moved. So the hunt begins. This work is still ongoing.

RE: Gabler's
Wow, a very neat story.
Would you happen to have an address of their farm or where their house used to be?
Lena Gabler was my husband's second great aunt via her mom, the Sharron side.
Hope to make it to Plattsburgh & visit St Peter's Cemetery & connect more dots.
Thank you for your help.
P.S. Would you happen to have any more anecdotes, information or pictures of the Gablers?

Thank you for picture!
Thank you Mr. Wales!:) This is my 2nd paternal grandfather. Are you also related? I was there over the summer and couldnt find Edwin or Ella anywhere. But it is hard and frustrating to do while using a walker. This time I had found Ezra and Lucinda Carters monument, as I was taking the pic, my walker rolled away down the hill! Please let me know if we are related, love finding so many relatives I didnt know about. If you are not, I very appreciatively thank you once again, and if you could, maybe you would transfer to me? Thank you for your help so this summer I know where to find them, hope they are not on a hill, lol! Sincerely, Cherri Carter Fellows

My line from Thomas Brown & Mary Annie Laurie Croft Brown comes down to Sidney Brown then downward. I have several pieces of information missing and not sure how much your wife Judith has but I would appreciate anything she has. lol. Regards, Cher
