Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in Genealogy in 1998 when I returned to my home town in Royal Oak, Mi. after being away for 35 years. A cousin of mine decided to have a family reunion at that time. Having a very large number of 1st cousins that I hadn't seen since childhood, I was delighted and overwhelmed with emotions. Everyone brought stories and photos and we talked for hours about our ancestors. The Altay Cemetery in Schuyler Co., N.Y. became my main focus as this is where my mother's Great Grandparents are resting. Since then, I have discovered that many of the people buried there are closely related to me if not directly.
Before Genealogy, I was breeding show quality Scottish Terriers, which I have raised over 52 puppies.

I have all the plot information for the Altay Cemetery. I am will to look it up for anyone interested.

I am currently using my Arwine family research / data to link together the family of Col. Arthur Erwin of Erwin, Steuben Co. N.Y.

I would like to pass on the kindness that I have received in the past while looking for my ancestors so I am willing to look up obituaries for any of my NY listings which is nearly all of them. Please request through the memorials.

Howard Waters again
Oops - just realized there's still one link not approved - Howard's father Sterling to his father George, so one cannot follow the tree quite yet.

Howard Waters #7492712
Dear Kathleen - Its taken a while but I want to thank you so much for requesting a link from Almon to his father. Been waiting on an edit approval to link Almon Waters's father Howard to his to his fathers to complete the tree.Finally got it so now the trail goes back quite a few generations. Full of interesting facts etc.I had found Howard long ago bu no page existed for Almon, but at that time I couldn't find out where he was buried to start creating one for him and his wife [my Great grand Aunt]and children. I got sidetracked and its thanks to you for bringing this to the fore again. Keep up the good work!!!
