Bio

I want to inform anyone that the information out there on the DeGroff's is misleading. William and Willempjie DeGroff came to Aurelius (later Owasco) in 1797. Please do NOT leave messages on "Flowers" stating their history, flowers are not for this purpose. Do not include documentation from the history by Ralph DeGroff or others as they were just "guessing the background of this family, they so admit it. Please no photos with comments contradicting the history, ask me.

My mother's family line settled in Scipio (formerly Ledyard), Aurelius, Fleming and Owasco NY starting in 1797. My line includes Spangler, Reysor, DeGroff, Nevius, Burnet, Cocks/Cox, McClow, Bergan, Kendall, Dwyer, Whalen, Wilson, Gleason, Rafferty, Casler, Petrie, Bowen, Cornell/Cornwell , Babcock, Hoagland, O'Hara, Brinkerhoff, Hotchkiss, Wilkinson, all buried here in Cayuga County.

Born and raised in Cayuga County New York on a local farm by a wonderful mother, father and my beloved grandfather, William John Casler, that taught me the love of the outdoors, love and respect for nature. William John Casler was the father of my mother Mary Elizabeth Casler, he ran our farm with a team of horses, wore suspenders at all times, tended to his bee hives, and did this all with the loss of one hand He had the most beautiful Elgin pocket watch that he carried at all times. My most memorable moments were when he would "whittle" me a whistle out of a twig and then take my hand and walk with me around the farm, explaining things as we went.

These special moments with my grandfather is what keeps me so diligent in finding all that I can about his family, how they lived. I know Cayuga County like the back of my hand, if anyone is interested in some genealogy of their family members from this beautiful county, drop me a line.

I am extremely "anal" in my research and have noticed many mistakes on Find a Grave where people do not do their research and connect the wrong family members to memorials. It is extremely important that you have the CORRECT info before slapping it on a memorial as these memorials are connected to Ancestry and Family Search which causes INCORRECT family genealogy to be WIDESPREAD!

P.S. My husband handles taking of the actual photos of memorials (just in case you are wondering why so few "photos taken" on my profile) but I am the one that finds them!

Please do not add photos to my family without my OK
