I met with William McGovern of The Cobleskill Rural last May because the Bouck plots had no stones on them and he was very helpful in Finding Christian Bouck's grave and now his wife's and daughter's and her husband, so here they are. Catherine King Bouck sec. K lot 755 David Drummon sec. K lot 754 and his wife Kate Bouck Drummon. The only grave with a stone is Kate's. I found Mr McGovern a man of a lot of concern for the job he does on the cemetery. James Jimenez
Nicholas Warner and Maria Shaeffer Warner
Hello - I am writing to let you know that I found the gravestone of one
Schoharie County's noted historic figures from the revolutionary war period -
Nicholas Warner (10/13/1746 to 7/27/1838). Nicholas is the son
of George Warner, Sr., (10/13/1746 - 7/27/1838) who is also
noted in Schoharie County history and whose gravestone and cemetery in
Warnerville was restored in 2010 by the Boy Scouts troop 56 of NY.
Nicholas Warner is commemorated with the battle of Cobleskill on the state history marker on Highway 7 in Warnerville of which I've attached a picture. His involvement is documented in the "Schoharie County NY Revolutionary War Soldiers" and "History of Schoharie County".
Nicholas Warner is my 5th great grandfather. We visited Schoharie county on November 6-7, 2013 to research our Warner ancestry. Attached is a short story of our visit including finding Nicholas Warner's gravestone.
