8 Aug. 2011
DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND MY CONTROL, I NO LONGER HAVE INTERNET OR EMAIL (AT HOME), I WILL STILL BE ADDING MEMORIALS-TRANSFERS-CORRECTIONS ON TWO OTHER COMPUTERS.
PLEASE LEAVE ALL MESSAGES HERE. Be sure to include your contributor ID #.

All my photos are free for distribution.

Ancestors & relatives never really go away, they get buried, cremated or vaulted in a sacred place for us to visit and remember. After all, where would we be without our ancestors? As much as it hurts to lose a loved one, we must be thankful for the time we had together. These memorials in FIND A GRAVE are growing by a million a month and make it easier for the world to find & see the memorials of their loved ones. Through these memorials, they live on.
Passionate is an understatement, Genealogy & Cemeteries are a big part of my life. Have 35 years of sometimes obsessive research under my belt. I'm one of the very few volunteers for Madison County, NY which is 662 square miles with 285 Cemeteries and endless hills (up to 1800 ft) & valleys, so go easy on me folks.
Genealogically I picked up where my Grandfather and his father left off. I specialize in Madison County, NY and surrounding areas and Warren County, NY. If you find your relative in my memorials and would like transfers or to add bios, or corrections let me know. All my photos are free for distribution.

Though it feels like "good-bye", we know that in reality, for those of us who have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ it is merely, "see-you-later"

Taphophilia is a interest for and enjoyment of cemeteries. Taphophilia involves epitaphs, gravestone rubbing, photography, art, and history of deaths. The singular term is a taphophile.

Winchester G. Mattison
I believe Winchester is NOT a child of Winchester W. Mathewson, as you have calculated in both their bios. His father was a Winchester Mattison, the youngest son of Solomon Matteson of Cazenovia and Lydia Eddy Matteson Oviatt. Solomon died about 1808, and Lydia married Ebenezer Oviatt. The 1830 census has Winchester living next to Wm. Eddy, his uncle, in Madison county. Reuben Eddy, Lydia and Wm's father, came to Merrillsville about 1801. Winchester G. was probably born in 1832 according to his obit--not 1827 on his tombstone. Most of the current trees for the Mathewsons do NOT list Winchester as one of the 17 children of the Winchester W. Mathewson born 1777. If you could decouple them, please in their bios.

I ADMIRE all the work you have done in Madison county--I see your name on a lot of grave bios. Thanks for all that!

Hi Andrew, Aunt Myra was a dear sister of my Dad, Jim. Met Mabel several years ago...went to see her at her home, enjoyed meeting her. She was a dear friend of Aunt Myra's. Have been searching for years to sort out these Fullers, Alison
