IMPORTANT! These queries were posted on the Seneca County NYGenWeb site years ago. Some go back into the late 1990s and most of the email addresses are probably no longer valid. The site coordinators have no way of knowing what the current addresses are, and suggest that you use a search engine to try to locate the original submitter. As they contain valuable information, they remain on the site. If you know of the current address of anyone, please ask them to check in to update their address.

General Seneca County Queries

Willard Asylum newspaper death notices Bob Moltzen, July 5, 2001
Does anyone know if the newspapers carried the names of those that died in the Willard Asylum in Romulus, Seneca Co. NY? If the death notices were printed, is there anyone who can do a look-up for a death listing ofIsaiah Johnson/Johnston, who died on Nov. 9, 1889? Isaiah was about 78 years old, and a former resident of Corning, Steuben Co. NY. I would appreciate any help I can get in locating this information.

I am looking for a will or probate records for Gustof Hagen (he was German). He died at the Geneva City Hospital on December 2, 1917 and his obituary said that his wife lived two miles east of the town on Lake Road. I am not sure if that would be in Ontario or Seneca Co. I have been told that they lived in Border City and in Waterloo. I am looking to see if there is someone who can check the records at the Seneca County Surgate's Court to see if a will or probate record exists there. I would be happy to pay any copying charges. Thanks, Paul Carter, [email protected].

EARLY STONECUTTERS OF THE FINGER LAKES AREA Laura Moore, [email protected] May 3, 1999
I am interested in early stonecutters of the Finger Lakes area-- specifically, a distinctive style of work done between 1800 and about 1847. I have found these specific kinds of gravestone all over the Tricounties. Up until yesterday, I had found only a few stones actually signed by the cutter, an "E.B. Smith". I found those stones in three Seneca County Cemeteries: a) the old Townsendville Cemetery on Co. Rd 146, b) an abandoned cemetery in a pine forest on Co. Rd. 143, and c) a cemetery just off Route 96, near Interlaken. Yesterday, I discovered 2 more signed stones in the same style, or a style that clearly imitates the same cutter. They were signed, "J. Sutton",(dated 1825,West Lodi Cemetery) and "N. Ellis" (dated 1833,Cemetery near Interlaken).
I am guessing that these cutters were apprenticing together under the direction of a master cutter. The work is fine and beautiful, done on local stone, and clearly all of them strive to emulate a specific style-- but I can't seem to come up with any information about stonecutters from that time period in the Seneca/Cayuga/Tompkins area.
