Frank Smith in Assumption
Cemetery has no record possibly due to the following:

St. Joseph's was established November 21, 1859. It was a small cemetery, (8 acres) located adjacent to Pond & First North Streets, owned by the Order Minor Conventuals (Franciscan Fathers). The estimates of people buried there ranged between 4000-6000+; mostly of German and Irish descent. In 1953 the cemetery was closed due to neglect and vandalism and abandoned by the Friars, as there was no endowment to take care of it in perpetuity. In the 1960's 6,567 remains were disinterred (of which only 509 were identified, according to the disinterment records kept between November 9, 1965 and October 29, 1966) and the land was sold to developers. All of the unidentified remains were placed in a common grave at Assumption Catholic Cemetery, Syracuse, where there is now a commemorative monument in Section U3. In addition to the white marble monument, there is a grey granite marker with legend inscribed…"Erected by the Conventional Franciscans in memory of those who were buried in St. Joseph's cemetery from 1859 – 1953 and whose remains were transferred to this cemetery 1965 – 1966" For reference material contact the Onondaga County Public Library. St. Joseph's Cemetery was one of the oldest cemeteries in the city of Syracuse, with many of the monuments dating before the Civil War.

RE: Hotaling in Walnut Grove
Been meaning to get back to you for a few days--sorry! The cemetery property is owned by Carson Bush, who lives at 2807 Apulia Rd, which is right across the street. I think the Bush-es acquired the property from the Hotalings around the end of the 19th century. They may or may not know anything more than what has been posted on this website by Diane. The county required burial permits after 1891--the town clerk of Lafayette may know where any are stored. Any person buried in the Lafayette or Jamesville cemetery after that year should have had a burial permit issued--any others, maybe not!
It is my opinion that Flora is buried in the Revilio Smith plot in Lafayette cemetery. It doesn't make any sense for her to have been buried anywhere else. That is a large plot, with room for at least 6-8 burials. As for Sabra--who knows?. She seems to have been living with Deforrest under the name of "Crouch", then disappeared. Maybe county potter's field burial.
Always a mystery!

Thank you for sending the information. I've changed the date and added some other info but was unable to read much of the obit you attached to the memorial as it was so small, Even when I increased the size it only helped a little. Could you e-mail me the obit and I'll add it in the bio section. I'll acknowledge you as the source of the obit.

RE: Hotaling in Walnut Grove
There are no more markers in Plot 192. The info I have lists Herbert D Hotaling (d1962) in lot #1. His wife Alma is listed as lot #6. Philena is described as between lot #5 & 6. Therefore, anything to the left of Herbert's marker is a possible location for a burial. There are no more markers, and no disturbance of the ground to mark any particular place. I question if Herbert Jr's father Herbert Sr. and his mother Anna are buried in plot #192 as well. Possibly that information may come to light at a different time. If you would like me to do anything different with the photo, (like delete it) please let me know.
Incidentally, I think Philander is buried in the old Hotaling cemetery on Apulia Rd. Since he met such an ignominious end and lived up the road from there, the family most likely picked him up from the Coroner's office and buried him there, sans burial certificate, headstone, and outlay of any money. There were still active burials there well into the 20th century.
