Hello My name is Scott Naylor, and I am trying to find references to a Nathan HATCH that married into the family, (the daughter of William PRICE, Sarah) about 1810-1825. I have little to go on at this time, as family history on this side is sketchy. Her daughter Olivia PRICE, married Benjamin Homer HALL 09/21/1818. I have some of their correspondence of this time (earliest letter dated 1810. Also very hard to read, mind you) on of it she writes to her mother, Mrs. Nathan HATCH. This is the first mention I have of the name, and hope to find some clues. The family speaks quite a bit about Genesee.

My ggrandparents(JOHNSON & TOWNER) are buried in an old cemetery in Phelps, Ontario Co., New York according to my uncle who used to live in that area. The cemetery is called the Methodist Memorial Park and is located on the main E-W highway (Rt 96) through Phelps. I was able to visit it for a brief time while passing through on vacation but was unable to locate my ggrandparents graves nor a cemetery office. I am seeking information on where the cemetery records might be kept or other key information such as the phone number or postal address of a local organization or government office that might know where the archives are kept? My ggrandfather Albert TOWNER was born in Michigan in January 1855, married in New York state in 1882, and died in Palmyra,Wayne County, NY in May 1930.

KNIGHT, LEE, SUMMERS Gary Lee Phillips Mon Nov 11 1996
KNIGHT / LEE ; 1819: Seeking information about parents or siblings of Fanny KNIGHT (probably Frances) who was b. 15 Nov 1803 at Thetford, Orange Co., VT and d. 30 Sep 1873 at Franklin, Oakland Co., MI. She married in 1819 to Harvey LEE (b. 3 Oct 1798, Guilford, New Haven, CT; d. 8 Mar 1877 Franklin, Oakland Co., MI) and the marriage seems most likely to have taken place in Ontario County, NY, at or near West Bloomfield. Is it possible to find marriage records this early for western NY? (Harvey's parents, William LEE and Mary SUMMERS, and their children were known to be living in West Bloomfield, NY from at least 1804 to 1811 when their last 4 children were born, and Harvey and brothers Norman and Horatio arrived in Michigan in the 1827-29 time frame, so NY is the most likely place for the marriage.) Any help or suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

LYNAH/LYNAUGH Kathy Monahan Thu, May 8, 1997
Searching for LYNAH/LYNAUGH. My mother's maiden name is LYNAH, also spelled LYNAUGH, even on some of her grandfather's records. I have recently been contacted by Brandon LYNAUGH, whose ancestors are buried in Victor. There is a high degree of probability that we are closely linked. Among the commonalities is the fact that his great grandfather and mine were both 6'5" which for two Irish boys with the same last name in upstate New York would be an amazing coincidence! On a more genealogical note, the naming patterns are almost identical, with John, Thomas and Paul showing up in close to the same order (John named 1st son John, next son Thomas; Thomas named 1st son Thomas John and second son John). Both had first daughters named Margaret.  Kathy Monahan
