RE: Dumbolton's @ Ezekiel Simth Cemetery
Kim, I don't know where records for that cemetery are. It is in Erie County,NY. So you might contact the county clerk for that. As far as photos of the headstones I think the entire cemetery has been photographed and uploaded to Find A Grave. I seldom get out that way but if I do I will walk the cemetery and watch for the Surnames (Dumbolton & Smith) for you. Some of the Smiths are already photographed. Many of them are very old stones and might be unreadable. My email is

RE: Abigail Dumbolton
The cemetery records say Abigial ( probably misspelled) (House) Dumbolton was born in 1817 and died in 1887. They say she was the wife of Sylvanus, born ca 1813. She is in Section 2 plot 39. For Sylvanus, the records say he was born in 1861 and died in 1880. Maybe this was her son and not her husband, or the birth date is wrong. He is also in Section 2 Plot 39. The marker is too worn for me to read. Other than that there is a Charles H Dumbolton 1879 - 1964, Isaac Dumbolton 1827 - 1898, Lloyd Winifred Dumbolton 1876 - 1906, sn of Isaac and Rebecca, Mary Estella Dumbolton 1883 - 1962, and Rebecca Shadel Dumbolton 1844 - 1919. For Eunice House, it says she died in 1881 but lists no birth date. The note says she was the mother of Abigail Dumbolton. She is also in Section 2 Plot 39. There are seven other people with the name House buried in this cemetery. Sorry I can't answer any better about Sylvanus.

RE: Abigail Dumbolton
You are welcome. Abigail's stone is very worn and hard to read. I checked all sides of it and saw that the west side was Eunice House, mother of Abigail Dumbolton. Then I could make out that the east side was Sylvanus and the south side was Abigail. After I posted pictures of Sylvanus and Abigail, went to post one for Eunice House and found that I had already posted it some time earlier. I guess that is why it looked so familiar.

RE: Samuel Dumbolton 79574123
Your ancestor is likely related to this family; it appears that various family members migrated from Otsego county to Oswego county. Look in Oswego county and see if there are clues there. There was a Nathaniel Dumbleton who went from Massachusetts to Columbia County, New York before the revolution. He was the brother of Eleanor Dumbleton, my ancestor. Now, Nathaniel had at least 4 sons. This might be the place to look for clues.

RE: Samuel Dumbolton 79574123
I know that there were 3 sons - John, Horace and Samuel. Horace and Samuel went to Oswego County, John moved to Rockford, Floyd County, Iowa. I don't know the daughters names. Samuel Dumbleton died in December 1812 in Willink, Niagara County. There is a record in The Early Settlers of New York State, Volume 1 page 369. This is confirmed by his appearing in the Niagara census of 1810 with his family. In that census, there are two sons under the age of 10 and two daughters under 10. Samuel was the youngest, born in 1812.
In Lovisa's father's pension application (Joseph Youngs, Rev War Continental line Massachusetts) dated 1818, he states he has a widowed daughter living with him and her husband died on the Niagara frontier. She is living next to him in the 1820 census for Otsego County in Decatur. Incidentally, if you are interested in the family, Lovisa's mother was Eleanor Dumbleton and the maternal line can be traced back to England - with the first maternal ancestor arriving in 1634. It's likely that Lovisa married a cousin, but I have been unable to determine just how they were related as there were several Samuel Dumbletons in her mothers relations. One definitely married someone else, and the other possibility may have been descended from a Samuel Dumbleton that died in Sprinfield, MA in the 1770s.
If you are on ancestry, my tree has as much information as I've been able to fine out about them - this has been a particular area of interest.

Hi Kimberly !
Thank you very much for the Towne edit's ! I greatly appreciate your help getting the data on these memorial's 100% accurate ! Also thank you for creating the other Towne memorials in that cemetery. It's nice to see the family's linked up on here !

It's so very tragically sad how in November of 1919 Five Members of the Elmer Towne family died within days of each other after having been accidentally poisoned when eating canned corn that was contaminated with an insecticide. Awful !!!

Someday I hope to get to visit that cemetery that they're buried in and put a bunch of actual flowers there with them.

Have a nice day !

RE: Davis
Hi Kim
I just came across a Frank Davis in the records for Protection. Unfortunately, the ONLY thing we have is the name - no birth, death, not even a real confirmation that he's buried in Protection. The only thing I can tell you is, for some reason, his name appears in the records along with the letters "NR" which means "no record".

I'll give you the lot as it appears in the records. Let me know if any of the other names mean anything to you:

Lot 16 (Old Section)
Grave #1 Elizabeth Bullard VanValkenburg
Grave #2 Beulah M VanValkenburg
Grave #3 empty
Grave #4 Frank Davis
Grave #5 empty
Grave #6 John VanValkenburg
Grave #7 empty
Grave #8 Howard Conner
Grave #9 GF Conner
Grave #10 Frank Conner

btw-I was at Protection yesterday and looked specifically at this lot. There is no stone visible on this grave (not to say there isn't one, the old section of the cemetery is in really bad shape, we unearthed several stones that we found just below the surface), but there was no indication that there was a stone.
