NEW 29 Jul 1998 I notice that on the Prendergast Cemetery notes, there
is mention made that Walter Cornell probably did not come to Chautauqua
County. That is true: Walter died in Albany, NY in 1833. He
was a son of Mathew Cornell & Elizabeth Shrieve and is buried in the
same small farm cemetery where his mother is buried. The cemetery
is in the southern portion of Washington County, very close to the border
with Rensselaer County.
-- Margaret Ernest -- (I am a descendant of Mathew & Elizabeth through their son Mathew & his wife Lydia Ford. Lydia's father was Thomas Ford, also a settler of Chautauqua County. I believe he is buried in the Magnolia Springs Cemetery)
The parents of Elvin & Stephen were Samuel Hunt who d. in 1800 in
Wash co. and Margaret. Possibly Margaret was a Burch, or she could have
been a Gibson since she had a grandson Gibson Hunt. Pure supposition but
