We have received a nice record of the descendants of Castle Sischo who was listed in our Old Gerry Cemetery and a record of the Kelley family of Stockton. We also received a list of cemeteries in Cattaraugus. We also received a request from Mrs. Rebecca Scofield Jackson, Northwood, Iowa, 50459 asking for the names of descendants of Daniel Scofield, emigrant, who are living in the Jamestown area. The Ellery Scofields came from Stamford, CT, but we do not know if they are descendants of Daniel. So we leave this query to the Scofields.
