I am Director of Education at Historic Huguenot Street. I would like control of the ean family tombstones in our burial ground so I can make some edits.
|Janet Lahr||Paige Cemetery|
The Town of Colchester records show that Lot 100 in the East section of Paige Cemetery was sold to Delos Hammond. He is my GGrandfather. The death certificates for him and my ggrandmother state they are buried in Downsville. There are no markers according to someone who visited the site for me. There was, however,three other markers, two old ones with LIZZIE on one and ANNIS on the other. The third marker says George Hammond 1873-1948. George is Delos' son.
Would you check this out for me or put me in touch with someone who can? I would also like photos of these 3 stones.

Just thought you might be interested to know that I came across a photo of Webb Horton with sisters Ester and Annis on the Middletown, NY website and posted them in Webb's and Annis's memorials.

Thank you for listing Maria (Freer) Ean. She is my 3rd g grandmother. If you'd like to transfer to me that would be great - or maybe she is also in your family?
|KET||Catherine Blanchen DuBois|
While doing some research, I found such legends and stories of this amazing woman who is my ancestor:
"On the 10th of June 1663, Hurley and part of Kingston was burned by the Indians, and the wife of Louis DuBois and three children were among those who were carried away captive. Three months afterward an expedition under Captain Krieger, sent from New York, recovered the captives by surprising the Indians at their Fort near the Hogaberg in Shawangunk. "From Ralph LeFebre's History of New Paltz, Fort Orange Press, Albany, New York, 1909: 'The story (of the rescue of the Indian captives) which is dear to the Huguenot heart of New Paltz, is that when Captain Krieger and his company, directed by an Indian, attacked the savages at their place of refuge near the Shawangunk Kill, they were about to burn one or more captives at the stake, and the women commenced singing the 137th Psalm, which so pleased the red men that they deferred the proposed death by torture. In the meantime Captain Krieger's band, with Louis DuBois and others, arrived and rescued the captives from a horrible death..."
Catherine is said to have been marched along with the other captives, many of which were children, to the area of Ulser, her home being burned behind her and her baby (Sarah) at her breast. She is said to have started singing about 'captives in a strange land' when the men of the settlement caught up with them and rescued them.
Catherine was impressed with the beauty of the region where she was taken. The family returned there later and built their home in Ulster.
Her daughter, Sarah, later married another of the captives, young Jost Jansen Van Meteren.
Thank you for the memorial to Catherine.
