Delilah Matteson

You posted a photo of her headstone on 2/25/2015. The poster of her memorial has her burial cemetery as unknown.

What cemetery was she buried in?

John B. Jencks, husband of Sarah and Laura
Would you mind sharing your death record of John B. Jencks, who was the husbands of Sarah Van Velzer and Laura who died in 1854. Both died in Livingston County NY.

Thank you, Jonathan, for taking the time and using your own personal resources to photograph the headstones of our loved ones. I am thankful for volunteers like yourself, that make Find-a-Grave such a huge success. Your efforts are much appreciated. Best regards, Bernice Mazzeo

RE: Sarah Oatman
Every time I tried to explain it to myself it got confusing! I kept going back to check if I had the records all correct. Too many Davids, too many Sarahs, lol. Pleasure working with you and love your photographs!

RE: Sarah Oatman
Hi Jonathan, yes, David who m Eunice Austin.

Their son Hiram married Freborn and Sarah Oatman's daughter Marilla MAtteson.

I left an extensive post on this several years ago on Ken and Marge's board several years ago.

The marriage of David, (relict of Eunice), and Sarah (Oatman) Matteson, (relict of Freborn) was 06/09/1842 in Shaftsbury.

This was after all their grandchildren of Hiram (his son) and Marilla (her daughter) were born.

It explains why she is in the Shaftsbury cemetery listed as "wife of David", instead of the Arlington cemetery with her first husband Freborn.

RE: Titus and Phebe Family
Jonathan, I don't have the photos. The inscriptions came from Peggy Jenks' book. But I'll get the photos next summer if you don't beat me to it.

RE: Titus Lyon Family
Here's the information on Titus and Phebe. They are buried at Scottsville, as you guessed. All on one monument:
LYON, Titus M., Jan 23, 1818 - April 7, 1896
LYON, Phebe M. Graves, wife, Dec. 22, 1826 - June 15, 1901
LYON, Charles T., son of T.M. & P.M., Feb 5, 1853 - Sep 19, 1854
LYON, George and Mary, children of T.M. & P.M., Aug. 16, 1866 (only date)
WILEY, Martha M. Lyon, wife of John, Sep 18, 1846 - Apr 1, 1883.
WILEY, Mary E, dau of J. & M., Nov 25, 1868 - Feb 2, 1875.

I'm assuming you want to create the memorials. If not, please let me know and I'll do it.

I'll also keep my eyes open for Thankful.

Jonathan, thanks for the parents of Myra Lyon. I've added the names to her memorial. Now, I've got to see if they have memorials so I can link them.

Sorry - just looked it over again and its likely because the dates are very incomplete as yet - I submitted full dates a couple days ago and they haven't been accepted yet. Sorry for troubling you. Thought it was some kind of glitch.
