Peter Salisbury
Hi Wendy! You added a record of my great great Grandfather's grave at a cemetery called Chestnut Grove in Unadilla back in 2009. Thanks for doing so! I am actively trying to find out more about Peter as we have nothing on ancestry.

Two questions for you: It looks like the people who chiseled his grave stone misspelled his name. Your photo shows it clear as "Sailsbury". Do you think they did that by accident or that was actually his name?

Also, looking at the tombstone pictures there is only one side shown. His birth of wife Emily Cooper is listed on the tombstone but not her death is it shown on one of the other faces? Would it not be unusal to not inscribe the date of her death?

Any thoughts?

Thanks, John Salisbury

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for the additional info on Helen and Clarence. Really appreciate it. I've put your information on each bio and adjusted a date for Helen's death.

Stay warm in Guilford and happy holidays!

Medbury Cemetery New Berlin, NY
If you are planning to go to the Medbury Cemetery would you mind company? I have been searching for it for several years and I feel I must go there and see it for myself. I live in Onondaga Co., a bit over an hour away. Thanks!

Obadiah German

I believe that North Norwich Cemetery used to be called Riverside, as indicated here:

I forget whether another Find A Grave contributor took the Obadiah German grave photo and sent it to me, or whether my sister drove from Albany out to Norwich to take it for me, but I believe it was one or the other.

If this information about Riverside and North Norwich cemetery being the same place isn't accurate, please let me know.
