Would love to share with the extended family of Margaret Stiles. She named a child, Julia Reese Stiles, after my grandmother.

I believe Alpheus B. Thornton my great great grandfather who was born December ??, 1814 lived in Oswego before moving to South Bend, Indiana, my home town. Alpheus's wife was Abigail. Some say her name was Aspinwall, but I need to verify.

My mother's name was Thornton.

Your website is lovely. Please add me to your guestbook. Thank you,

Just stopped by looking for information on one of my ancestors, Hosea Ure, and his parents, William Ure and Susan Drake, whom I believe lived in this area between 1825-1845-ish? Anyway, I live in Utah so can't come by to research in person, so would welcome any information anyone might care to share electronically. Thanks!!

Have just come to the realization that there is an Oswego and a Owego in New York. Must now go back and un-correct genealogical records in my tree. My Sharps came from around Oswego and my Bates are from Owego. I guess one must do more thorough searches on place names before going on to the next generation -- a lesson well learned -- now.

Your list of veterans has a mistake; the Ezra Stevens listed as a Revolutionary War Vet is buried in Connecticut. His son, grandson and great grandson are all buried in Lacona in a small plot near the Dairy Farm.
Also, Marshall Stevens, the son of the "last" Ezra lived and died in Sandy Creek. He was a Civil War Vet with the NY mounted volunteers. He is buried in Pulaski in the Family plot.
I know this as I am a direct descendent of this branch of the Stevens Family.

These last 3 surnames have been brick walls and do not seem to be able to move beyond these 3. Hope someone can help. I know that my 2nd ggm was Mercy Whipple (her mother also name Mercy and used Mary) she married Phineas Walker b.VT, however, they lived in NY and most of the children were born in NY. I have a child Michael Whipple Walker, b abt 1811 in either Otsego or Oswego. Can you help.

I am searching for any reference in county records to this particular James B. Payne (below#, buried in South Richland cemetery. The date of death is what I have been told is his. But he had been in Michigan prior to this. I am hoping he is my great great grandfather; if so, he was born 23 Mar 1811 in Herkimer or Oswego county. Married Abby Southworth 17 Apr 1842, probably in that area. Any reference to these events would confirm relationship to my family, and I will jump for joy!

Thanks.

He is buried next to his parents #inscriptions beneath his).

Hello Good Friend,

Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise and may offend your personality for contacting you without your prior consent and writing through this channel.

My propose of entering into secured property site doing my searching for a foreign reliable partner is to be assured of your capability and reliability champion in business opportunity.

I am a Canadian Army my name is Captain John Boats. 090209-M-3450C-014 II Marine Expeditionary of Multinational Division Center, base in Kabul, Afghanistan, of the NATO Marine Force on Monitoring and Peace keeping mission in Afghanistan.

On may 11, 2012 we were alerted on the sudden presence of some Terrorists camping in Marzar Sharif, a suburb not too far from Kabul here in Afghanistan. After Immediate intervention, we captured three (3) of the Terrorists,(7) injured.

In the process of questioning they confessed of being rebels for Abu Baqir a Taliban sub-commander and al-Qaida group leader, and they took us to a cave in Marzar Sharif. which served as their camp. Here we covered some boxes 5 contains weapons, and the other contains some millions of US Dollars and I have in my possession the sum of USD13.7 million as my share. I am in keen need of a Reliable and Trust worthy person like you who would receive the MONEY, secure and protect the box which contains the money for me because in 3 weeks time some U.S.Army will replace our UNIT in Afghanistan and I will soon come back and finish the deal and relocate my family. I assure and promise to give to you 20% of this fund and keep 80% for myself. However feel free to negotiate what you wish to have as your percentage in this business.

It is never a stolen money or illegal money but we are on duty to bring peace in Afghanistan and many soldiers have lost their lives and no amount of compensation would bring back the dead soldier then consider how the family will feel, that is the reasons my unit decided to share the money among us; but return all the guns and ammunition's to our Camp.

It is official and that's the reason why I need your assistance to ship the box to any save location of your choice. Please, I reposing my trust in you to maintain absolute secrecy and confidentiality to protect my job, my life and the money.

In less than 5 days the after I got your response the box would be in your possession and I will give you further instructions. But you must know that I have taken precautionary measures to secure the money. The box is coded with high security gadget so am the only one that has the right combination to unlock it. If you are interested, send the following information so I can proceed. Your full name............... Your full address.......................... Your direct phone number................ Your Age.......................
Regards,
Captain John Boats

Hi,
I appreciate all of the hard work you have done for this website. However,I am wondering if the surname "Parker" has ever been researched for Oswego. It was a very prominent name in that city and county,as well as the "Robarge" surname. Very old names,settling this area back in the late 1600s and early 1700s. As a matter of fact,Albert D. Parker and his sons were quite prominent in the Oil sales business,I believe the Utica Oil Co.? George Orland Parker had a solid business of his own in Oswego in the 1800s.

To help you out,the Table of Contents page has a typo on the link that begins with "Business's". It should be "Businesses".

Good luck with your endeavors and I will be back now and then to research.Thank you.

Cindi

Hi,

This is a great site. Thanks very much! I'm searching for my husband's family and have found some info about James and Catherine (Day) Dwyer and their many children in and around Cleveland. At least, I think it's the right family! Their son James P. Dwyer moved west around 1870 settling in Chicago. I worked backwards on this from Evanston, Illinois, where an article reporting his death in 1896 said he was from around Saratoga. Much of this family fits, but I'm open to suggestions and corrections!

I am a blood relative of Henry Lillis 1807 and Elizabeth Ellis. Henry Lillis 1807 was born in Dorchester Grafton NH, and migrated to Oswego in the 1830's or 1840's. My records show that Henry Lillis and Elizabeth are recorded as living in Oswego, Oswego, NY in the 1840's and 1850's, and are found in the Federal Register for Oswego in the 1850s. Henry and Elizabeth had at least five children: William Lillis 1834, Francis David Lillis 1838, Elizabeth Lillis 1840, Thomas Lillis 1842 and Mary S. Lillis 1845. I would appreciate it, if you could direct me to resources to determine their birth,marriages & deaths etc, while living in Oswego, NY. Henry's father was Henry Lillis (1863-1854#, and lived in Kittery ME, Dorchester NH and Sandy Creek Oswego NY. Henry Lillis 1763, was my great great great grandfather, father of Henry 1807, David 1815 and George W.Lillis 1820. I have been able to track Henry Lillis 1763 to Sandy Creek and his death in 1854 and burial in Woodlawn Cemetery, Sandy Creek, NY, but no record of Henry Lillis 1807 after they showed up in the Fed register in 1850 in Oswego. I was able to located David Francis Lillis 1838-1886, thru his military records, his hospitalization in Leavenworth, Kansas and burial in Leavenworth National Cemetery in Leavenworth, November 13, 1886. David Gibson Lillis #1815-1865# was my great great grandfather, he was the younger brother of Henry Lillis #1807). thank you, Dean Shirley Lillis.

My family tree includes Sarah Ann Harrison (born about 1821? probably) in Argyle, Washington County, but later of Oswego County. In the 19th century she married Isaac P. Hall. Their son was Edward H. Hall, but not the Edward who married Ida Ketchum in Stamford, CT. I am looking foward to finding Edward Hall anywhere and putting some dates and places to this Harrison and Hall family. Seeking parents of Isaac P. Hall. Seeking descendants of Sarah and Isaac Hall. Seeking any references to this family in public records.

Any information would be appreciated.

I am looking for information regarding my 2nd great grandfather's sister. Jennie Mcgonegal (sometimes misspelled as Macgonegal) Her mother, Maria Mcgonegal, was widowed when the 4 children were quite young. I have found Jennie living with a couple in Mexico, Oswego County, NY on the 1900 census. Medora and William A. Ball (Bell--not sure). The next recording is her marriage in November, 1902 to Charles S. Ward of Scriba, his father was the Rev. George M. Ward. Next record is 1910 census showing Jennie, Charles and a son George Ward (born 1904). 1920 reflects the 3 of them living together. 1930 shows Jennie Ward living with Medora Ball (Bell) in Volney, Oswego, NY. Jennie is listed as her adopted daughter. Jennie is 54, Medora is 85 and they both are listed as widows.
What I am looking for is information concerning the death of Jennie's husband Charles Ward (sometime between 1920 and 1930) and I am wondering what became of the son, I haven't found him in any 1930 census.

Is there a resource that someone can direct me to that will help me determine this information. I am also looking for information regarding Jennie Mcgonegal Ward's death.

Jennie was born in 1875 in Missouri. She lived in Nebraska until 1885 (she is there with her mother on the 1885 NE census). I cannot find a 1990 census. So naturally I am wondering when and why she ended up with Medora and Chas Ball (Bell). I know times were really hard between 1875 and the early 1900's. Impossible for a woman to raise these children without support, so I imagine she found families to care for them (that was the case with my 2nd gg grandfather, Jennie's brother. Her sister died at age 19 in Nebraska. Her other brother is found in Syracuse working at the Street Car company). I would just like to complete the family tree and record as much information as possible.

Any suggestions regarding vital records in Oswego County, Cemetery info, etc., will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Susan

Searching some roots of my 2nd great grandfather Frederick J. Forman born about 1831. Father Alexander. What points very strongly to an 1860 Oswego census that he is the same as one James F. forman is the fact that Frederick bore 2 children on Martha's Vineyard, Mass. A son named John RObinson Forman and a daughter named Margaret Lucretia Forman. James (aka Frederick) had a sister named Luc(e)retia and mother named Margaret.
After reaching Alexander I have come to a dead end. I have a family written note that Alexander and Margaret Forman attended the wedding of their son Frederick to Helen M. Norton. I hope to learn more of Alexander.

My greatgrandfather Watts Sherman was born in Scriba NY on March 15th 1837to Leonard Sherman and his wife Anna Whitford. Leonard was bornJan. 27th 1805 at Isle La Motte,Grand Isle County VT. His father was Enoch Sherman who according to tradition was born in VT but rumored to be fron Rouse's Point, NY. His mother was Rachel; last name unknown. Leonard was a woodsman and he and his sons worked in the woods and on the canal in your area. the sons names were Charles W., Sylvanus W., Enoch George, Leonard, and Melville, all born at Chatteaugay, NY. Then Henry and Watts were born in Scriba. We believe Leonard and his family lived at Peter Scott's Swamp. My sister and I have been trying to accurately trace Who this Enoch Sherman was as there is little information available. Leonard and Anna were married Nov. 8th 1825 at Chateaugay, NY. They moved to your area about 1833 and moved away to WI about 1855. Any historical info you might be able to find would be appreciated. Thank you.

Then Henry and Watts were born in Scriba. We believe Leonard and his family lived at Peter Scott's Swamp. My sister and I have been trying to accurately trace Who this Enoch Sherman was as there is little information available. Leonard and Anna were married Nov. 8th 1825 at Chateaugay, NY. They moved to your area about 1833 and moved away to WI about 1855. Any historical info you might be able to find would be appreciated. Thank you.

I need one piece of information that may end a 30 yr. search in Canada. I was hoping that Oswego Town may have some look-up volunteers..but I can't seem to find any. I hope if I include the info here, someone may take pity on me...Andrew Norton died in Oswego Town, April 6th 1905. All I want to know is where in Ontario, Canada he was born & the name of his parents. I'm hoping his death certificate will have this info on it. Even if you don't have volunteers, I do enjoy all the work that has been done on your site. Thanks, Dawn

I may be on a wild goose chase - but I have a picture from Charlotte Lund the Opera soprano, that is signed to my great grandmother, who also happens to be a Lund. There is a resemblance between Charlotte and my great grandmother so there is a chance the two are related. Charlotte was born in 1870 and grew up in Oswego, NY before embarking on her singing career. Her parents were Andrew Lund and Nell (Byrne) Lund. Andrew was born in Norway. The last name may just be a coincidence, but I'm hoping to find more information on the Lund family in case there is a relationship.

Greetings, My ancestor may lived in the Oswego area before and during the American revolution. John Partridge subsequently moved, I believe, to muddy York (Toronto) and then in 1818 to Fingal in Elgin county which is south west of London, Ontario. In 1830, the family moved to Norfolk County, Ontario (mid way along the north shore of Lake Erie.) for the next two generations. Economic opportunity in the 20th century brought my Father to Toronto and me to Ottawa.

What a beautiful web page you have! I moved to Oswego in 1963 to teach design and sculpture at the college. I am currently collecting for my own interest all things regarding Oswego history. I may possibly be of some help to you as a number of my works deal with the city and county. The round, bronze and aluminum, designated historic buildings plaques for the Heritage Foundation were designed and made by me as was the park that preceded the Veteran's Memorial park, a sculpture commissioned for the city by the college to commemorate the bi-centennial, a commemorative plate and cloisonne' pin for the same event and my graphic design students created the very first graphics done for the very first Harborfest. And a few years later, I believe; these were for Charlotte Sullivan and Mary Avrokotos. her assistant at the time. I think you will find a dozen or so references to me in Dorothy Rogers book on Oswego Education. Leo Finn was,and Frank Sayers is, a friend of mine,as well as others from the Heritage Foundation like Helen Brietbeck. If you feel I can be of any assistance to you (apart from typing), please let me know.

I'm so glad you are there ! I am tracking Jackson E. Lane who was in Hannibal in the 1850s and migrated with all his kin to Linn County, KS in 1860. He told a biographer he married Sally Ann Parish but in the 1950 census he is with Catherine, born in New Jersey and buried with her in Trading Post Ks. I"d appreciate your requirements for researching. Thank you.

Sons John, born 1860, and Michael, born 1866, in Oswego, daughter Margaret born 1864 in Rensselaer County. 1870 census shows Ellen and children alone in Oswego. What happened to John (farm worker??) between 1866 and 1870? Any guidance will be greatly appreciated. I've already written to Catholic Churches with no discoveries.

One area of my research is the EVERETT family:This group were NOT from the huge Massachusetts .families of EVERETTS. They descended from a Richard EVERIT in Conn,who married before 1741 an Elizabeth-4-[REYNOLDS ]. Then,my descent using this Richard as GEN.-1, is Joseph-2-; Thomas Acton-3 ;George A.-4- ;Thomas Benjamin-5-EVERETT-born 1850 Sidney; Delaware Co.,NY.; Albert Delos-6- EVERETT.
Albert D.-6-known as Bert ,was born Oswego, Oswego Co. in 21.SEP.1873 and died in Sayre,Bradford County,Penn. on 02.Jan. 1924. His mother was Eliza Jane [CAPRON ] of Lisle,Broome Co.NY.
Albert/ Bert had a younger sister named Mabel EVERETT. A nickname when young was 'Kittie'. There were or are some descendants of this Mabel [EVERETT ] DELANEY in Oswego County. I am trying to reach them for the following reasons:
1) To locate further information about Mabel's FATHER, Thomas Benjamin-5-EVERETT after 1880 until his death:This is an unknown to me. And to uncover this Thomas-5- Mother HARRIET M.'s MAIDEN NAME-also unknown to me and for which I have searched for over 15 years now.
2) To share info. on this family with descendants who might have an interest.
Mabel [EVERETT] married William DELANEY in 1899. Their children were-Gladys,b.191901 and married first to MORRISON and second to TYLER, and third to LOWELL: Angeline,b.1903 married NOBLE in the Cortland area; and William Floyd DELANEY b.1908 [married CHAPMAN].
Some descendants of Gladys [DELANEY] are to be found in OSWEGO. COUNTY,NYS. The name places are PHOENIX and WEST MONROE. Others in ONONDAGA County are Central Square and Liverpool.
Here-for contact purposes -I am listing only SURNAMES: Some may be deceased and some living and some are in a later generation.
MORRISON; and PICQUET.
Thank you for Posting this information and query. Charlotte J.Sheldon

Great site. Have found much information and am always looking for more. I am a descendant of Dwight and Bessie Kingsbury and of Edward and (Hannah) Margaret (Hess) Andrews.

Edward Andrews was born in England and may have had a sister Catherine and a brother William. Catherine married Dr. F A Havill. All lived in Constantia. I am looking for any information on parents of Edward, Catherine, and William.

Dwight Kingsbury was born in Boonville about 1870. His father was Ira Manley Kingsbury who died 1871. Dwight's mother was Almira Geraldine Youngs. After Ira's death, she married Jacob Bauer. At about the age of 13, Dwight lived with his grandfather, Michael Youngs. In later years, Dwight lived in Oswego and Onondaga counties. I am looking for any information as to Dwight's parents who I believe to be Leonard Kingsbury and Anna Marie Preston.

I had relatives who lived in Oswego. Thier last name was "BARNES", and I was always told of the "farm" they lived on. According to what I was told, it was an "apple" farm, and there once stood a big, 2-story, boxed shaped farm house. I think My sister here in Virginia, still has the tin stencil that was used to label the bushel basket tops full of apples, using an inked roller. Do you have any information on this. Thank you so much. I also have a friend that use to live out Hannibal or Mexico way, by the name of Carol Forest. Her x-husband ran a bar downtown, They had 4 children.

I got on your website to see where Chateaugay was. Every time I put in that place name for rootsweb's us town/county database, it comes up with both Oswego and Franklin Counties. My people are from Franklin County back in the late 1700 and up to the 1880's. They then went to Michigan. But my parents moved to Syracuse in 1938 just after I was born. My grandmother bought a cottage on Dempster Beach so I know Oswego County somewhat, having spent most of my summers there in the 40's and 50's. I was interested to see the picture of the hospital and nursing home. In that hospital they once saved my father's life after a heart attack. And I must mention the book by Janet Lund, The Root Cellar. I taught 4th grade and it was a read aloud every year that the students just loved. The descriptions of Oswego took me back to my childhood. If you have not read that book, I'm sure your library has it. If you love history, you'll love this book!

Dear Sirs,

Do you have any information on a Herold Micheal Schaufler. He was born aprox. 11 Mar 1896, died 29 Mar 1896 +- 1 year. rootsweb.com and LDS site show his parents as Christy W. Schaufler and Maria Bower. I think he is the parents of Albert W. Schaufler 1865-1937 and Bertha Buske 1866-1915. PLease advise. My e-mail adress is clancydon@mchsi.com Thank you for youir time in this matter

Your web site is a welcome find. I am researching the ancestors/family of a famous Arizona pioneer who i think came from one of Oswego County's families: the Bicknell family. Although he died in Arizona his estate seems to have been settled May of 1906 in Syracuse, New York. His brother Eugene P. Bicknell looks to have been the primary heir. So this is what brought me to your web-site.

Very pleased to find your web site. I'm doing genealogy and found a rabbit trail I'd like to explore. It is a photo from M.S. Lovell & Son, Oswego, N.Y. My presumption is that it is of my grandfather, Harry Adelbert Miller, born Cass Cty, MI 9/17/1871. He attended Univ. of Chicago in the late 1880s and perhaps moved on to Oswego to teach or as a minister. In the picture, the subject "looks" professional in coat and tie, heavy dark rim glasses, well groomed. He returned to MI and married in 1893. Any information will be appreciated.

Very nice site. My ancestor, Captain Isaac M. Green (1809-1887)was a ship master who sailed from Oswego, beginning as a child of 10. He became master of the Arcadia in 1829 and retired from the lakes in 1865. I have accumulated quite a bit of information on him and would love to share it with those interested in early Great Lakes shipping. At some point I will put it in a nice packet and send it to this site.

Oops! I got ahead of myself in the sign-in note, below, and forgot to mention that the first time anyone in the Gaston family named one of their children 'DeForest' was when my Grandfather, Frank DeForest Gaston, was born to great grandmother, Phylinda Bristol Gaston, in 1857. The name 'stuck': Father (Audley DeForest, sr) and he gave it to me. And I've been trying to determine where it came from.
That it never occurred before Phylinda Bristol joined the family, I have speculated that she is the one who brought it to the table - maybe because she knew someone in the Bristol family who was named 'DeForest' (there are several)

Comments:
This is about a long-standing, and as yet unsuccessful, search for the identity of the parents of my great Grandmother, Phylinda Bristol. Since the first occurrence of the name 'DeForest'in the Gaston family took place with the birth - to Phylinda Bristol Gaston, I have long suspected that 'DeForest' was the name of someone in the Bristol family bearing that name. And so, I have been looking for any Bristols with the name 'DeForest' in hopes that I might find a clue to Grandmother Phylinda's roots.
It's dicey, I know, but having been at it for so long, I'm now given to taking long-shots.
I've found lots of stuff in the Oswego newspaper archives referring to DeForest Bristol of 301 Walnut St., Oswego, and wonder if any of his living descendants can tell me anything about the family - - especially about any long-lost cousins.
Oh BTW: Phylinda had a twin sister, Lucinda.

Hi everyone! I am searching for my Irish ancestors,in particular, my great-great grandfather, Bartholomew Scanlon, born circa 1830, who immigrated circa 1848, and for 10 years was in NY, but don't know where. His 1st child, John,was supposed to have been born there in Apr.1855. They ended up in Flint, Mich., where in married, had 6 more children, and died in 1911. Need to know who mother of John was and where/when they were married, when she died. Curious about immigration patterns in NY area, and if Bartholomew was a laborer on the canal system. His occupation was shown as cement mason. Were records kept of laborers working on the canals in Oswego County? John's obituary says he was born in Rochester. Can you give me any leads as to what labor records are available there or in the surrounding area? My thanks for your time and consideration. Mary Ramirez

Great resource, and best of luck. My family Michael and Mary Healy came to Oswego in the last quarter, or so, of the 19th century. Their son Jeremiah Healy was my great grandfather and he settled there with his parents (Michael and Mary), sister Helena(who married John Murphy) and brother John. My great grandfather Jeremiah married Mary McGrath in Oswego. Mary had a sister Jo (Josephine) who married Fred Hollenbeck. Jo and Fred remained on Oswego. Jeremiah and Mary moved to East Syracuse. I believe Helena and John Murphy remained in Oswego as did Helena and Jeremiah's brother John Healy. I believe his daughter may have been Rennie Moran who remained in Michael and Mary's house until she died in that gray house in 1986. Mary McGrath Healy died in E. Syr in 1910, but was buried in Oswego. If anyone knows of them or remaining relatives, I would love to hear from them. Thank you, Carol Farron

COuld you post this on the Richland Web page.
"On Tuesday February 20, 2007 the town of Richland will mark it's two hundredth anniversary. The town Board will meet that night (its usual night) and will likely begin by marking the anniversary.
On Saturday February 17, 2007 Town Historian Shawn Doyle is planning a 200th birthday commemoration, likely to be held at the H. Douglas Barclay Court House in Pulaski. The event will feature displays on local history, hor d'erves, coffee, tea and other light refreshments. Doyle anticipates monthly events throughout 2007 to mark this auspicious event. During the 2007 Oswego County Fair a large display will also be built.
Historian Doyle is seeking photos and family histories to include in the display at this event, and also throughout the year 2007. We are especially looking forward to people whose families left Pulaski/Richland over the past 200 years.
Contact Shawn at 85 Lake St., Pulaski, NY 13142 SPDinPUL@hotmail.com"

I'm looking for my great grandfather, John J. McGraw, who seems to have disappeared from the record in the late 1860's in the Oswego area. His wife, Ellen (Nellie), is listed in the 1870 census for Oswego and their sons,John (1860) and Michael (1866) were born in Oswego while their daughter, Margaret (1864) was born in Rensselaer County. John and Ellen were, I believe, married in 1859 while living on the Nyack farm in the southern tier of New York State. I have already written to the Catholic churches in the area with only negative responses. I would be glad to come to Oswego if there were some indication that records for the appropriate time period were available for review. Any assistance in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

I was happy to see the information on the 147th NYVI on the web. I have been doing research on the 147th for almost twenty years especially as it pertains to 2nd Lieutenant William Sullivan Co. I. I have thoroughly reserched his military and pension records and have written a summary of his activities. It was submitted to the Oswego County Historical Society in 1993. Additional information was received in 2003 which allowed me to complete the post war records as it pertained to his discharge and pension. I also was in receipt of his commission papaers, a sketch of his campsite at Petersburg with Lt. McKinley and his daguerrotype in uniform. These have all been archivally preserved and most recently returned to his great grandson for the family to keep as part of their heritage. It should be noted that in the history of the 147th Sullivan is listed as having been severely wounded when he carried the flag back to save it. In fact he was not wounded at all. In addition I have the camp chair of the Assistant Surgeon who was transferred to the 147th from the 76 Reg.t in Jan 1864. It is all in original condition. I also have some Carte de Visites as well. I would like to know what happened to the regimental flag that was at the centennial celebration in 1965. It appeared there and was reportedly "lost" Does anyone have any informastion on that. The NYS flag repository has two guidons and one national flag but is not aware of the additional flag I am inquiring about. Thanks for you help and I would like to be in contact with your group if possible on a regular basis.

My grandfather was Dr.Joseph Breen Ringland of Oswego. My father was Breen Ringland, born in Oswego. There's a family plot in the city cemtery. My grandmother was Nellie Pratt Glazier Rappelye of Minetto. My father, born in 1916, left Oswego for prep school and never came back. I've lots of Ringland family memorabilia and no one to leave it to--with no male children our name dies with me. Is there a museum/library in Oswego that would want these papers/photos, etc?

I was born in Fulton in 1944, and lived in both Oswego and
Fulton until 1962. Recently a family member asked me to research our family history. Most are buried in Peck's
cemetery, Scriba, NY. I cannot find this referenced anywhere. There was also a Civil War cemetery on our property on the Hall Rd. Although the property was sold sometime in the 80's, the cemetery was preserved. ???

Stumbled on this site today, for the first time. AT least two years I discovered the name of Charles Boonshot listed as a volunteer enlistee in the 81st infantry regiment New York, on 14 September 1861, and mustered out Company B, 81st infantry regiment New York on 15 September 1864 in Bermjda Hundred, VA.
Since my great uncle, father and brother all have the name of Charles Boonshot, you can understand why this interested me. Have tried to find more information,but no luck so far.
Our name was Bodenschatz, from Bavaria, Germany, and Americanized somewhere along the way to Boonshot. That is too much of a coincidence not to be related to us in some way. What I really need to know is what happened to him after the Civil War. Did he marry, have children, where is he buried, etc.? If anyone knows anything at all, would really appreciate hearing from whoever. Thanks.
