John Rathbone Sat May 29 06:07:49 1999
I visited an old, uncared-for (thorns, scrub, apple trees) cemetery (located north of the county road between the Village of Madison and Madison Center to its east) and placed flags at the gravetones of Captains Israel THOMPSON and Timothy HINDS of the Revolutionary War era. There are other gravestones too; all have either fallen over or have been moved to lean against a tree. Most are slate gravestones. The captains have two stones, one with their name and rank, date of death and age, and a verse; the other has just their initials. There are two cemeteries located here, adjacent to and abutting each other. One is being cared for and has recent interments from the Williams family of Hamilton. The American Legion posts of Madison and Hamilton would like to restore these cemeteries. Does anyone have any information about these men and the cemeteries? Were they included on the DAR inventory? There are rumors that the remains have been removed and re-interred into the cemetery in the Village of Madison; this has yet to be determined.

Robert L. Lowe Tue Jun 15 12:12:36 1999
We are looking for any information on the Lowe Family of Madison County, NY. In 1850, Thomas Lowe and his family emigrated to America from Norfolk County, England. Landing in Quebec Canada, he proceeded to Madison County, New York. His first wife Martha died in Englnd and he later married Sarah ?? from central NY. Thomas Lowe had seven children, five of whom were still living in 1894 - Charles H., Walter, *James, John, Sarah. *James Lowe (b. 26Jan1838) md. Hannah Hostler of England on 19 April1859. James and Hannah had a son Charles H.S. (b.1860) who owned a hardware and bicycle lease/repair shop in Munnsville, Madison County during the late 1800's, early 1900's. Charles H.S. married Cecil Searles of Syracuse on 4Jan1882. He died in 1934 and is buried in Stockbridge Cemetary, Madison County. My great grandfather, William E. Lowe, either worked at or once owned the bicycle shop in Munnsville. William E. (b.1862, d.1949) of Cazenovia, Madison County md. Emma Burton (b.1849, d.1927) of Erieville, Madison County on 17Aug1884. William E. and Emma Lowe had a son Irving (b.1889, d.1972) who married Winona ?? (b.1889, d.1931). They had three children, Lewis and Laura who died young, and my father William O. Lowe. William E. and Emma, Irving and Winona, Lewis and Laura are all buried in Erieville Cemetary. We cannot find the connection between William E. Lowe and Charles H.S. Lowe. We cannot find who William E.'s parents are. Charles H.S. and William E. would have been close to the same age. The Lowe's pretty much stayed around Madison County. We have a picture of the 7th Annual Lowe Family Reunion at Castle Park taken in 1931. Does anyone know where Castle Park is or used to be?


Robert L. Lowe Fri Jun 18 10:32:37 1999
My great grandfather, William E. LOWE used to work at a bicycle lease/repair shop in Munnsville, Madison County. The bicycle shop was next to a hardware store and the whole building was owned by Charles H.S.LOWE. William E. LOWE md. Emma BURTON on 17Aug1884 in New Woodstock, Madison County. William and Emma BURTON LOWE had at least 2 children: Irving (b.1889-d.1972) and Bernice "Bern" (b.late 1800's and md. Robert ANDREWS). Irving md. Winona ?? (b.1889-d.1931). Irving and Winona LOWE had at least 3 children: Laura (d. at birth in 1921), Lewis (b.1929-d.1936), William O. (my father who d. in 1991). William E. & Emma, Irving & Winona, Laura & Lewis were buried in Erieville Cemtary along with Emma's family, the BURTON's. Little is known about them. John and Amanda BURTON may be her parents. Charles H.S.LOWE md. Cecil SEARLES and had 3 children: George (who also worked at the bicycle shop in 1900), Harry, and Ena. Charles H.S. had a sister Ada md. Henry FREEMAN and had a daughter Edith. Charles H.S.LOWE's father James LOWE emigrated from Norfolk, England with his family in 1850 at the age of 12. James LOWE had 6 other siblings: Septimus (b.1846-d.1860), Walter (b.1841-d.1926), Charles H. (lived in Oneida), John (lived in Siloam), Sarah (md.TEFFT and lived in Oneida), unknown sibling. Charles H.S.LOWE, James LOWE along with wife Hannah HOSTLER, Walter LOWE are all buried in Stockbridge Cemetary, Madison County. We think John LOWE may have md. Mary BARNES and they are buried in Fairview Cemetary, Pratt's Hollow, Madison County. William E. LOWE and Charles H.S.LOWE were around the same age and we are trying to find the family connection. We have no other family data further back than William E., no clue as to who his parents were. If anyone has any info on the LOWE family of Madison County, it would be appreciated. The LOWE's pretty much stayed concentrated in Madison County.

I am seeking info on the Whipples of Madison Co. My ancestor Willard Whipple's tombstone states he was born in Cazenovia NY Aug 30 1796 son of Jeremiah. I have discovered that Jeremiah was briefly in Ohio after leaving NY, and finally came to Dearborn Co IN where he had a falling out with his sons as he had married a much younger 2nd wife. He must have left Cazenovia a very rich man as he gave his five sons $12500 each which was an enormous sum in 1820 and he broke off relations with them and moved to and later died in Decatur Co IN. Willard also had brothers Lawrence b c1805, Elias b c1801 both in New York. With that amount of money the Whipples should have been prominent in Cazenovia. Can anyone help??????

I am searching for any information about the family of my gr.gr. grandmother, Harriet (Hattie) SIMS. She was born in Cazenovia 2-12-1843, the daughter of JAMES SIMS (1802-1904) and Sarah BLODGETT. There are about 12 SIMS family members buried in the South Cemetery (AKA Cazenovia Town Cemetery). I think the father of james is WILLIAM SIMS (1769-1864)and his mother Deborah (1779-1859). William or his ancestors may have come from Norwich, CT. but I have no other information. Thanks.
