Parma Sibyl Lyon Reynolds Fri Nov 7, 2003

I am trying to find something about my Grandfather Robert (?) LYON.

He died when my Father, Adelbert Fuller LYON, was only three months old.

They lived on Charles Street in Waverly, NY. The LYON's had a furniture factory on Broad Street. There were several brothers. I have never known any of my LYON relatives.

I guess when my Grandfather LYON died and my Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth FULLER LYON remarried Alson A. PHALIN, she lost contact with the LYON family. I have always wondered about any LYON cousins I might have had.

How can I ever get a search started on this. I put in the name Robert LYON but the only LYON's I come up with are named LYONS...not LYON.

Thank you for any information you can provide.

Lee Haugen Mon May 26, 2003

There's a cemetery near Owego, Tioga County, New York. I've visited it. I'd like to direct some one to it. The town and county lines change around there so much I'm not too sure if I have those correct.

The cemetery was called Stonewall Cemetery. It's not real accessable now, and is over grown by woods etc. It's located on a farm. It's across the river from Owego and since the bridge was closed, we had to take a round about way to get to it.

Would you know the location of that cemetery and the farm it's located on. I'd like to get in touch with the people. A cousin will be making a trip out there in June and I'd like to be able to tell her how to find it. No one in town seemed to know about it.

If it would help, along with others, there is a James BLOW and his wife Margaret BLOW buried there.

I would appreciate any help you could provide. If not from you, maybe you could direct me to someone that might be able to help.

What ever you can do, Thanks.


Dave Herzog Fri May 16, 2003

I was sent to The Binghamton library looking for records of a place called The Susquehanna Valley Home. I did found some ledgers kept for that place.

If it would help I have a photo copy of the entery in the ledger showing both Hazel and Frank Harding, born in the town of Owego in Tioga County, admitted into the Home on July 6, 1906, born in the Town of Owego and in the County of Tioga showing the mothers name as Rose PRICE.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.


Terry Shoultes Sun May 18, 2003

The newspaper (source unknown) ran a story in Jan. 1903 about the murder of Edith SNAPP by her boyfriend Claude SUNBERG. Edith was a resident of Union and the great-granddaughter of Jacob I. SHOULTES (1798-1856), the first SHOULTES settler to Newark Valley (1825). Edith was the daughter of Frank S. SNAPP (1854-1924) and Cora SADDLEMIRE (1859-1919).

The newspaper account is a very detailed story about their relationship. Her boyfriend fled after her collapse and tried to catch a passenger train in Vestal. He successfully eluded the law but the train was stopped in Owego where he was arrested and charged.

If anyone knows how the case came out, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Walter Patrick Coston Sun Apr 27, 2003

I have been researching my family and need your help.

1830 US census of Virgil, Cortland Co., New York shows Luther BROWN with wife and two daughters under 5 yrs old and one daughter 5-9 yrs old.

1835 NY State census, same place, shows two males, wife and 4 daughters under 16 yrs old.

1840 US census in Virgil shows Luther, wife, male 10-14 yrs old, one daughter 5-9 yrs old, two daughters 10-14 yrs old and one daughter 15-19 yrs old.

1850 US census in Spencer, Tioga County, New York shows Luther and Anna (sic) BROWN with 7-year-old son Joseph. The four daughters are gone.

1855 NY State census in Richford, Tioga County, New York shows Luther (53 yrs old and born in Chemung County, New York) and Ann (52 yrs old and born in Cortland County, New York) with their son, Joseph (12 yrs old and born in Tioga County, New York). Luther and Ann say they have lived in Tioga County for 13 years.

1880 US census in Fairmount, Leavenworth County, Kansas shows Luther BROWN (78 yrs old) with his wife Ann BROWN (76 years old), son Joseph (36 yrs old) and grandson, Henry (14 yrs old). Joseph's wife is dead. (The 1880 Census shows additional information.)

I think the youngest of the four daughters is Adelia A. BROWN (born June 30, 1833) but can't prove it. (That’s what I’d like to prove or disprove.) She married Elisha Pierce DEMARANVILLE July 2, 1849 in Richford, Tioga County, New York. These two are my great-great grandparents.

Can anybody identify any of these four BROWN daughters or supply any more information about Luther and Ann BROWN? How about where and when they died??

Thanks so much.

My gr-gr-grandmother, Harriet STEWART, was living in Barton 1887 with her daughter, Eleanor PHILLIPS, and granddaughter, Estella.

The 1887 Tioga County Gazetteer and Business Directory shows Harriet (p 42 Barton, outside Waverly, evidently in Factoryville), so she was alive then at about 80 years.

She probably died in Factoryville, though I have not been able to find her in any of the cemetery records on the Tioga web site.

Can anyone suggest how I could find out when and where she died and is buried? TIA

Two years ago my husband and I bought the house that is next to the CRINES CORNERS CEMETERY We were wondering about the history of this cemetery, and if it is related to our home.

Currently all we can find is one tombstone (Thomas WILLIAMS) and about 20 fieldstones.

Rumor has it several years ago a farmer plowed the rest underground.

If you can provide us with any info or someone who does we would appreciate it.

Also is there any old pictures of this area?

I am researching on my great-great grandfather, James Theodore BLAIR and his family. He must have gone by his middle name Theodore.

He was born about 1847 Chenango Twp. Broome, NY to Roswell BLAIR and Maryette SHAYLOR.

The 1880 U.S. Census has him at age 33 as an F. Laborer and married to Hattie BLAIR age 35, with sons, Charles age 5 and Dana S. age 1.

I know that is buried at the East Waverly cemetery. He died May 28,1906 at the age of 59, according to his head stone.

He served in the Civil War in Co. A , Regt. 137 of the NY Volunteers. He enlisted August 13,1864 as a private, age 18 in Barker, NY and rank out was Pvt.

Any help is appreciated.

I am researching the HOYT families that were in Tioga County from ca 1800 to 1870.

I am particulary interested in David HOYT born about 1795 in NY and married Elizabeth FRANKLIN.

David and most of his sons left NY and moved to Mercer County in 1842.

Any info on this line appreciated.
