RE: Nathaniel P Davis
OK. I was concerned that I was giving wrong info - I've tried to make sure that everything I add is accurate. Thanks for your help!

Still plugging away at Protection Cemetery. Was out there on Monday. Many of the stones look worse than they did the last time I was there.

The Davis row is such a mystery! I didn't have time to get to the Town Clerk while I was there. Hoping to get there in the fall and see if I can find anything.

Nathaniel P Davis
Hi Steve!
Saw that you added the death date I requested - thanks, but now I am questioning myself.

I saw the note you added. Actually, I did not think I was basing Nathaniel's death on the last census he appeared in. I am guessing, based on the note you added to the memorial, that you are assuming that is where I came up with the death date? Actually, I was using the "Family Data Collection" that is part of's collection. Are you familiar with that collection?

Here's part of what it says ...
"A unique database containing 5 million genealogical records (20 million names) that were saved from destruction after being rejected from scientific studies. The Family Data Collection records were created while gathering genealogical data for use in the study of human genetics and disease.....Thousands of families are known to be present in the database, containing 20 million names in 5 million records. This data covers the entire U.S. for a wide expanse of years. At a minimum, each record contains an individual's name, date and place of birth, and the name of his or her father. A complete record will contain the following information for an individual: Name, Date and Place of Birth, Date and Place Married, Date and Place of Death, Name of Spouse, Name of Father, Name of Mother, Use this database as a finding tool, just as you would any other secondary source. When you find the name of an ancestor listed, confirm the facts in original sources, such as birth, marriage, and death records, church records, census enumerations, and probate records for the place where the even took place."

Here are the specifics that were given:
Name: Nathaniel Pendleton Davis
Spouse: Sophie Rogers
Parents: Samuel Davis Dolly
Birth Place: Orange, Corinth, VT
Birth Date: 1811
Death Place: Holland, Erie, NY
Death Date: 16 Jun 1880

Anyway ... Now that you have brought up the fact that the date given in the Family Data Collection record is the same date that 1880 census was taken, I am wondering if whatever "family" provided the info about Nathaniel, gave the 1880 census date as his death date simply because it was the last census they found him recorded in (or did he really die the day the census was taken)?

I thought I had found something, but now I am questioning myself, do you think we should remove the death date? I don't want to add false info.

Hello Steve and thank you for creating the memorial for Peter. Through some sort of glitch I seem to have created a new membership for myself because my email address has changed since I moved to the Gables in Rochester. I'm trying to get back to the previous work I'd completed.If you have any hints for me I'd like the powers that be at findagrave to mesh my two entries. I'd been a member for quite a few years but hadn't used this site after last summer.

You a doing a great job with Honeoye people.
Check out the Pitts Cemetery entries and you'll find various members of the Hazen family with links to most of Edward and Mercy's offspring.
Peter's ggg grandmother Betsy Hazen Perry was a half sister to Edward.Ruth Wendt would have been quite thrilled to discover that one of her ancestors was among the earliest settlers of Pittstown. Do you think that the town historian would like my files regarding Honeoye.?

Samuel & Dolly
so we don't know when Samuel died, but must be pre-1850, right?

RE: Nathaniel Pendleton Davis' wife
I wish (:

Do we know if Samuel came to Holland with her? Or did he die elsewhere and she came here with other family?

1865 census said she had, what was it? - like 12 kids, right?

I wish I could figure out the Davis plot in Protection.

Nathaniel Pendleton Davis' wife
Hi Steve
Had a small breakthrough that has been under my nose the whole time.

My ggg-uncle's "death book" (as I fondly call it) listed Nathaniel's wife's death. On the line below he wrote "sister of George W Sweet".

My ggg grandmother was Polly Ward. She married Rufus Hawks. Polly had a younger sister named Eliza Ward. Eliza married George W Sweet. George Sweet and Sarah Sweet Davis were siblings.

I swear, by the time I'm done transcribing this cemetery, I am going to end up related to everyone in Protection (:
