RE: Spiegletown Cemetery No, I don't think I was systematic about it. There's definitely some fallen or buried stones too. The stones, aside from tipping and being dirty, are generally in pretty good shape.
It's overgrown, but not too hard to get around it, and it's fairly small. A neighbor of it told me some scouts had cleared it a number of years ago but that it immediately became overgrown again. I'd like to go there with a saw and lopping shears sometime, and also maybe plant some periwinkle. I have some relatives there, though no direct ancestors of which I'm aware.
I found your bio on John S. White Find A Grave memorial #69975007, in which you state his birth 1744, and died 21 Oct 1804, Aged 60 years. How sure are you of these dates?? Did you obtain this information off the headstone??
The reason I ask is that my 5th Great Uncle was John S. White, and his wife Susannah White is buried in Easton Rural Cemetery, Find A Grave #83006278, however, I can not find John S. White's name listed in that cemetery. I know he died in Easton, I have found his last will which was dated 3 Oct 1846, and recorded on 14 Nov 1846, and states he is of the town of Easton, and which would place his death between 3 Oct 1846 and 14 Nov 1846.
I was wondering if the date of death for John S. White (Find A Grave #69975007), could really be 21 Oct 1846 instead of 21 Oct 1804, which would place his birth (60 years) about 1786, then this burial could be my 5th great uncle.
Find A Grave Memorial# 97133554 His grave was listed as unknown in the Global Find A Grave. This is the first time I have encountered an "unknown" so I'm not sure how to handle this. I notified the contributor of that memorial and thought I should also let you know.
Eagan family in Calvary Cemetery Hi Janice, The newspaper article I attached to Capt John Eagan's memorial #118263527 mentioned a son who drowned in 1902. Capt Eagan bought a plot in Calvary Cemeteryto bury him. In June 1905 the family of Capt Eagan was stricken with scarlet fever and quarantined on their canal boat at Cohoes. Three children died there, a 13 yr old child, a 15 yr old son, and a 9 yr old daughter. Which child do you think was not buried in Calvary Cemetery?
