Hi, I have been doing genealogy for many years. My grandmother sparked my interest when I was a young girl and then gave all her work to other people. I remember a lot of it though and by the time I was 30 my interest was strong, so I've been actively working on it for about 44 years. I work on all my lines , so my files are really big.- mostly French Canada and New England. Dad's are French Canadian ( Fayette and Charland) and New England (Sherwin, Cole, Hill, Richardson, Shurtleff, Pike, Wilson etc. and then across the ocean. Mom's take me a little differemt route into New Enland with Emery, Shatswell, Ladd,Heath and other lines and her paternal ( Tamer) lines bring me into Syria/Lebanon where it is very hard to find anyone.|
Over the years, I have been active in many things, worked as a clerk, a cook, secretary- anything that would help me raise my children. I joined the DAR under my great grandfather, Daniel Sherwin and served in offices there. I was an auxiliary President for two years (VFW Aux in Plattsburgh) then went through all the chairs going in as Council and later District President.
At age 50. I started college and got an AA at clinton community with honors. Went on to SUNY Plattsburgh, and got a BS in Social Studies and a history concentration. Life long dream of being a teacher especially of history. During the time I was in college I served as district 4 President, Dept of New York with over 5,000 auxiliary membership. At the end I was runner up district President of the year with only half a % difference than the first place district President. I have really enjoyed my time in the VFW Auxiliary.
My husband was killed in an accident in 1996 and one year and 11 days later, my youngest daughter and her unborn son died with cancer. took lots of prayers to get through that. So, I began study to become a lay minister through the Diocese of Ogdensburg and was commissioned 2 years later. For 10 years my ministry (in Peru)was caring for people in throes of grief for a deceased family member. In 2007, I moved back to Plattsburgh and resigned my committee.
One of my favorite hobbies is walking through cemeteries, sometimes with a camera, sometimes not. Guess I need to remember to grab the shutters a little more often.
I try to get some cemetery photos but at the moment am having lots of arthritis pain and can't do this as often as I would like. Sorry, can't do more.

|Deb Curry||RE: Nancy Canfield|
I am directly related to the Sackett family so Alzina Canfield would be my 8th cousin 3x removed.
|Deb Curry||Nancy Canfield|
Find A Grave Memorial# 95156281 for Nancy Canfield has a gravestone marked Russell Emery. Is the wrong picture on her memorial??
|Elizabeth Davis||RE: Abijah Willson, Jr.|
Fantastic! The Abijah Willson, Allen, Parrish, and Cudworth connections are so tight. How about any local Arnold, Stafford, or Arthur family? They're all cousins through Allen or Arnold of Harkness. My mom moved west to help with the baby, so I don't have a Clinton County helper anymore. Is your research progressing?
Thank you so much. Are you giving me permission to share that info on my Read/Sherwin memorials on findagrave? Anyway I am excited to get info on them.

I think I am related through one of the Sherwin wife's who married a Read. Not quite sure at this point.

Hi, no changes were made - the info you sent was a repeat of what you sent last September. It was already added the first time you sent it, as well as the parents' links. : )
|AnnieSings||RE: Sr Mary Agnes|
I don't know to which memorial you are referring, but I'm sure that if it is a memorial I created, it's a Sister Mary Agnes, SSND. However, if you send a SAC from the memorial in question, I can check for you. Thanks, Annie
|Janet Hoff||RE: Cline|
So sorry for not responding. I work full time and do not go into email very often. Thank you Nancy for the info. Janet

Hi, Nancy, I was searching Find A Grave at Assumption of Mary cemetery in Saranca, Clinton Co. for Joseph Gagne/Gonyea and saw your message to someone (Diane) about your connection to Joseph's wife, Cecelia...maybe your gr. grandmother's sister?
I am looking for information on this Joseph & Cecelia Gagne family, especially their daughter Julia, born about 1844 (this information taken from the 1860 census). I'm trying to verify that this Julia (aka Rosalee or Ursaline) was married to Oliver Lamoureux/Lamora, Sr. of that same area of Redford & Saranac.
You mention that you had the "books" for Assumption (plus I read your Find A Grave profile and your impressive background and see that you're helping the local parishes with records, Find A Grave, etc). Is there any way you could find a marriage record (or is this book only for burials?) for Julia/Rosa Gagne/Gonyea to an Oliver Lamoureux/Lamora, son of Jean Baptiste (John) Lamoureux/Lamora and Catherine Bricault Lamarche...it would've occurred around 1862/1863.
I am also interested in your story of Indian heritage and your grandmother letting her genealogy recods go to family down here on the St. Regis Reservation...is that the Durette/Lurette line of the family or the Gagne or neither of those? Just curious...
I greatly appreciate your time and attention to this lengthy "message". Take care, Laurie
I have posted to obits to the memorials. Thank you for the wonderful information.
