Thank you for putting Ransom's Obituary onto his memorial page!! I can't wait to check out his cemetery next time I'm in that area.

RE: Flick - St. Mary's Lancaster, NY
Thank you for the update. I had just been thinking about this over the weekend and was glad to hear from you. Funny how elusive some of these folks can be. I will be on the look out for any FLICK surname I see in the immediate area and let you know if I come across any. Kathi

Hey - I was thinking about where Martin could be. Here is a possibility worth looking into. I would try calling Fourteen Holy Helpers Church in West Seneca (sometimes referred to as Gardenville), NY. Just a hunch. Let me know what you find.

RE: Flick - St. Mary's Lancaster, NY
I checked last week and this is the best way to get there since sections aren't marked. You'll pull in on St. Joseph Dr. at the corner of N. Aurora. You'll be entering with the school on your left and the cemetery on your right. Drive to the back through the parking lot and just before the church will be a drive that turns into the cemetery on the right. It's quite close to a one-way sign.

Follow that drive to the end where you'll take a left and then pull over on the right (in the grass) and park. Just head straight back toward the railroad tracks from there. It's just s few rows in and exactly three rows (in) from the last row before the tracks. It is down, fairly large, and may be covered in grass cuttings. Let me know if you need anything else. Happy travels! Kathi

Charles Van Valkenburg
Would you connect him to his parents for me? His father was Archibald V. V. (27700852) and Betsy S. Bates V. V. (27700916). Thanks so much. Lisa

RE: Lucius Van Valkenburg
Thank you for contacting me. Something that might help with some of your questions are the instructions on the census records.

I.e. the 1870 census, in the NAME box includes the statement requesting every name in the family as of June 1, 1870 be listed irregardless of the date of when the census is taken.

In the 1900 census, it states that but also adds the note to omit any children born after June 1, 1900.

I don't know if this has any bearing on Lucius, but it is food for thought. I have tried to really be cognizant of what the census records are recording. I made that discovery a few years ago when I was researching another family.

Hope this helps. Lisa

I know exactly where it is, and I'll give you precise directions next time I go there. Shouldn't be too long :)

RE: Flick - St. Mary's Lancaster, NY
I have wonderful news for you! I can barely believe it myself since there isn't even one "Flick" in the database I am working with. I walked three sections of the cemetery yesterday. Just as I was almost done, I noticed a broken (fallen) stone that was completely covered by leaves and debris except for the top 6 inches. I started cleaning it off and realized it was Mathilda. The odds of this happening in a cemetery with 5000(?) burials are pretty low. I guess luck was on "our" side yesterday. I'll get the photo uploaded this afternoon :) Kathi
