DEATH RECORDS FOR THE FRANKLINVILLE, CATTARAUGUS COUNTY NEW YORK AREA

As Recorded by James Fay

1860-1894

 

The following list is a record of deaths in the Franklinville, Cattaraugus County, New York and presumably surrounding area, as recorded and maintained by James Fay between 1860 and 1882. It was often the custom before official death records were required in New York that a town person personally kept records of each death. This original journal kept by James Fay is in now the possession of Dr. Fay P. Greene, great great grandson of James Fay. When James died in 1882 at the age of 92, someone else (possibly his son) continued some entries of people who died in this area up until the 1890s. This is probably not an exhaustive record of ALL deaths in this area.

 

For the most part, the handwriting is very legible, however there were a few names that I could not easily decipher. These names have question marks beside them, and if the first letter of the name was possibly different it has been re-entered under that letter.

I hope that some of you will be able to gather more tidbits about your ancestors in Cattaraugus County as a result of my great great great grandfather’s efforts.

About JAMES FAY:

From "History of Cattaraugus County", published in 1893, Page 654

JAMES FAY, son of Cyrus, was born in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, married Olive Rice, of Brookfield, Massachusetts, and came to Cattaraugus county in 1829, in 1830 settling on the farm now owned by Cyrus M. Fay, his son. He was a man highly respected, held several town offices, and was a member and deacon of the Presbyterian church. He died in 1882, aged ninety-two years. Of his five children four are living: William G., Sarah J. (Mrs. I..L. Cole), J. C., and Cyrus M. (J. C. is probably John C.)
