Searching for obituary information regarding Philip Henry Wasim whose
gravestone at the Swan Lake Cemetery (formerly Stevensville) west of Liberty,
Sullivan Co., NY, gives a date of death of 18May1872. He was probably living
near Briscoe Lake, Sullivan Co., NY, at death.

Gravestone gives a date of birth of 10Apr1785 in Prussia according to US
Census records. Emigrated in 1821 according to Magna Carta Book. Lived in
Hurley, Ulster Co. in 1825 while buying property at Briscoe Lake in Sullivan
Co. Naturalized 11Sep1837 in Ulster Co. Lived in Marbletown, Ulster Co., NY,
during 1840 and 1850 US Census. Resident of Liberty, Sullivan Co., District
#2, NY, according to 1855 and 1865 NYS Census and 1860 and 1870 US Census.

Thanks for your help.
