Subj: RE: a researcher
Date: 5/29/2003 2:04:54 PM Eastern Standard Time
From: katerose@covad.net

how can I find a researcher in the city of Buffalo, Erie, NY? Second, can that individual go to the court house to “research” a death record? I have contacted the Vital Records office of Erie County and the only thing I get on the phone is a recorded message that says that #1 you have to be a descendant of the individual for whom you are acquiring the death certificate. # 2 you have to know the death date of the individual. Now, #1 we can give the researcher a letter of permission from the grandson of the individual we are looking for and we have the genealogy to prove it. #2. we do not have the date of death, that is what we are looking for. We have a fairly narrow range of 1893-1897 but that is the best we have been able to pin point from records in the FHL in SLC. # 3. Also we would like to find the marriage of this same person and have been unable to so far. I am hoping that you could point me in the direction of a professional researcher in the area. If not that is okay as I have a couple of other possibilities that I will try. Thanks for your time Kathleen Rose

Subj: Alvin Carver
Date: 6/16/2003 6:18:27 AM Eastern Standard Time
From: marge.mc@verizon.net

My dad and I are trying to complete our family tree and we are searching for the father of Alvin Carver. My dad has four family bibles that he used initially and for the last fifteen years (on and off) he has been researching his genealogy with trips to Philadelphia and the Family Life History Center in Morrisville, PA. When we came to Alvin Carver in Erie County, Newstead Township from the 1850 census we hit a brick wall. This is the only broken link. If we can identify Alvin's father my dad thinks he can trace the family back to Massachusetts. We are now looking for help. My dad has advanced emphysema and I would like to complete this task for him before he is taken from us.

We know that Alvin was married to Caroline Luther Carver and they had a son Jerome. We know that Alvin is buried in a private cemetery in the town of Alden (Crittenden), Erie County, NY. The tombstone reads "Alvin, Aug 26, 1858, 51 yrs 3 m 1 d." Also buried there is "Carol, wife of Alvin, Apr 7, 1873, 65 yrs 5 m 28 d" and "Catherine, Wife of Jere(mce)(we think this should be Jerome) L., July 19, 1869, aged (?0) yrs 3 m 15 d." We know that Jerome had at least two wives and maybe three. We have found Jerome in the NY 1860 Federal Census in Erie County Newstead one page 304.

From: nerickso@bcc.ctc.edu

I'm researching family ancestors and am looking for information on Orpha J. Partridge, who was born sometime between 1820 and 1830 in Erie County, NY. She married Horace Underhill somewhere around 1850, although they had several children before then. He may have been a shinglemaker in Eden, NY. I believe Orpha died around 1880. If you have any records on Orpha and her Partridge lineage, I'd be greatly appreciative. Thank you,
