November 2018


In many records, there will be a date that the document was signed.  And, there is also a “recorded” date.

These two dates may be quite different.

Keep in mind that the person signing the document would have been alive on the “signed” date.  However, there is no guarantee that the person was alive on the “recorded” date.

For the month of September, hubby and I made an extended trip to the Northeast United States.  As you know, I reside in Indiana. So, the trip was quite lengthy!

Since we were traveling through New York, we stopped at five family burial grounds.  One of these was for the Champion family, and four concerned the Lyon family.

The cemetery we visited in Starkville, NY, was the Champion Cemetery.

The cemetery was located in a field behind the volunteer fire department building.  Here is one photograph of the cemetery.

At this time, I am creating a map of the cemetery.  I am using Excel for this, placing each gravestone in its own cell.  I will post when the map is complete.

For the process of creating the map, I am also using the photographs that hubby and I took.  Each of us had a camera, and each of us took different views of stones and also of the entire cemetery.  I am also using information found a http://www.findagrave.com.

Hopefully, I will have the map finished within a short time.

I know that I have not posted for quite some time.

For the month of September, hubby and I made an extended trip to the Northeast United States.  As you know, I reside in Indiana. So, the trip was quite lengthy!

We traveled from Indiana, through Ohio, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine, arriving to our furthest destination of Bar Harbor, Maine.  We visited these same states again on our return trip.  However, we visited different places going each direction.

Since we were traveling through New York, we stopped at five family burial grounds.  One of these was for the Champion family, and four concerned the Lyon family.

In some of my next posts, I will post about what was found at each cemetery.  As you will notice with each of my posts, there were some surprises found!

I want to wish all of my faithful readers (even when I have not posted for a while) a very Happy Thanksgiving!
