Robert J.(Sr) Appears in the 1870 NY census as being in Pleasant Valley, N.Y. After which he disappears.
Pleasant Valley Town Records were beleived to have been destroyed in a fire in the early 1920's? He appears in no later censuses. If anyone has some suggestions or knows the local cemeteries to Pleasant Valley that would be great.Some notation in my old notes say there is a Robert KEDNIE buried in Salt Point. But where?Thanks to all. Debby

RE: Hugh Stevenson and Wilson
Sorry Debby- My Wilson name was made in Brooklyn when my G.G. G.F. Carl Johan Olsen jumped ship and changed names. I have a Hugh Stevenson that came to America as a child but he married Grace Bird. I have five others in Ireland and are accounted for. I go have one Hugh born 1863 and I don't know who he married.
The only Reilly I know of was my g.g.g.m. who married Cornelius Rodgers and although family folklore says they were born in Donnegal, I never could find them there.
Sorry I could not help you.

RE: Hugh Stevenson
Hello Debby

No, it was Elizabeth (Stirling). She was the daughter of Joseph Stirling, a painter in Londonderry.

Sorry not to be able to help. All the best Deirdre

Michael Green enlisted in Brooklyn

Was he the same Michael in the 1880 census of New York City with a wife Mary aged 54, born in England? ... and a son Thomas John Green, age 20 and daughter Ellen Jean Green age 17... both born in New York???

Michael Green buried at Togus

Findagrave has made the edits that I sent to them. Perhaps you can add biographical information. They might even transfer the memorial to you so you can do that.

ichael Green buried at Togus

Hi Debby,

It turns out that I took a photo of his gravestone back on October 30th, 2013. I have posted the photos and submitted the transcription and geo-cords as edits. He was born about 1833 in Ireland. Enlisted on 1 Oct 1862 in Company K, 159th New York Infantry, and was mustered out on 4 Aug 1865. He was admitted to Togus on 4 Aug 1885 with heart problems.

I have done a little research on him with my "Togus National Cemetery" family "tree" on

Togus National Cemetery in winter

Hi Debby,

I take a lot of photos at Togus and even got my "permission slip" renewed for this year, but I haven't been out there for a few months due to the SNOW.

I had a stroke last month that left me with double vision, so I haven't been able to drive for the past month. Hopefully I will be able to see well enough to drive by the time the snow melts. I feel like a pirate wearing my eye patch ;)

Section F is easy enough to find. I will look through some of my backlog of photos to see if perhaps I already have a photo of his gravestone.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper
