Bio and Links
If you see an ancestor to you that I have uploaded, please request a transfer. I am happy to do so, even if it falls outside of the Findagrave guidelines. I have tried to help others find their ancestors as others have helped me.

Always eager to meet a new cousin along the way too. If you share an ancestor with me, I'd love to hear from you and trade info / pictures / whatever I have. Will take what ever you have.

You are entitled to use any photo I have posted. I took them so others could see the gravestones of their ancestors and families. If you happen to get rich publishing some of my photos of gravestones please share a percentage with me. You are entitled to use any photo of a person I have posted, We have a wonderful family treasure of photos. I am always curious if others have ones I don't have of my family members.

If you have a picture of a family member of mine please be sure to contact me, I'd love to see it.

If you are doing research on your ancestors in Onondaga County I suggest the following links.

Please don't take offense to what I have on my bio. It was not directed towards you at all. I've had problems with people that have no basic manners to reply to messages, emails or even process edits! Believe me , I wish all the Find a Grave members were as nice and prompt as you are! Have a great day!

James and Margaret Glass
Thanks for sharing the info on James and Margaret Glass. They are my 5th great grandparents. I plan on taking a ride up from Connecticut soon to visit the site and my other Glass family relatives.

If you ever happen upon Eunice (Glass) Choate let me know. She went by E.S. Choate as well and was born around 1821.

Transfer Memorial
Could transfer Ebenezer Butler (1734-1829) to me, Daryl Hall. He is my 4th great grandfather. Otherwise I question his bio. I believe the information is his son's Ebenezer Jr (1761-1829).
Ebenezer Sr's father Isaiah Butler died in 1778 and his mother Martha Baldwin died in 1790. Therefore they could not have moved there in 1791.
I get confused with same names so it took me a bit to figure this out. I appreciate your help in this.

Grave information needed to be added
These are not relatives of mine.

I’m writing a western, and one of the real characters came from Syracuse/Salina. Needing another real person to buttress the other, found Auntie Kate O’Blinnes nee Catherine Van Vleck, midwife. (So good I came here, in I'd not had her as Auntie Kate.)
I have used Find a Grave and the US census to give depth of real people and Sanborn Insurance maps. So thought I'd give some back.

Missing on the grave info of Isaac Van Vleck and his wife Bata and daughter Catherine O’Blinnes

Isaac Van Vlecks' family consisted of three sons, named Matthew, Abraham, and Henry, (and two of the three daughters). Henry Van Vleck removed to Illinois and died there; Matthew became a prominent citizen and a large land owner; he held the office of supervisor (Mayor) many years and was a member of assembly in 1833. He was killed while on a hand car in a collision on the Oswego and Syracuse Railroad ( born 27 February 1784
death: 24 May 1856) . There is a list of children and name of wives, by his and his brother Abraham grave info.
It is not listed nor linked in Isaac and or his wife Bata's decedents.

"""After Isaac Van Vleck's death his wife removed to Pittstown, Rensselaer county, where Abraham learned his trade of tanner and currier. After following it some years he returned to Salina in 1834 with his family and lived there until his death in 1867.
James Van Vleck, of Salina, and Isaac, of Clay, were sons of Abraham. The late Mrs. O'Blennis, of Salina, was a daughter of the pioneer Isaac Van Vleck. She lived to a great age and was authority for many valuable historical facts."""

RE: Perry Burnand
Hello, I've mostly concentrated on the Burnand side since they are the blood relation. For people who marry in to the family, I usually identify their parents for clarification. Thank you for the offer though. Sincerely, Eve

RE: Eva Holland

Thanks for checking the records again!

I've been doing some more research on Eva today, and have found that there was an Eva H Van Camp, born about 1880 to Matthias and Cerella (Shaw) Van Camp. Eva is thus connected to the Holland and Van Camp families, which owned Section B, Lot 40 in Maple Grove Cemetery. Eva and James had a daughter, Fayelista Christine (Holland) Barrows, who lived part of her life in Lockport, Niagara, NY. Fayelista had a son James, who is shown in the 1949 yearbook for Wilson High School in Wilson, Niagara, NY. I haven't found evidence of where Fayelista was living at the time of death of the Eva H Holland buried in Greenwood. But, this does show a connection between your Eva and Niagara County. If your Eva and my Eva are the same person, moving to Niagara County after James' death would be logical if she had family there. My Eva appears to have been on her own at the time of her death in 1976, based on the fact that Niagara County purchased her grave. If our Evas are the same person, there would be a question as to why she was not with her children.

My gut is telling me these Evas are the same person, but I can't prove it yet.

Thanks for your help!
