TELFER, George Robert
George Robert Telfer was born in 1887 in Schenectady, NY and died in 1929. He married Elizabeth Maria Wells, daughter of Casper Wells and Katherine McKenzie. His son Robert Wells Telfer was my wife's father and he recently passed away. He knew little of his father having been abandoned by him at age 5. His father was Robert Telfer, who according to the 1920 census for Schenectady was from Scotland. We have no other info on him, no record of death, of birth, no other family members, no marriage certificate. All such information would be greatly appreciated. We were informed he was buried in a private cemetery. His family once lived in Glen Spey.

TYMESON (near Monticello)
I'm searching for the final resting place of Garrett TYMESON, b. 1779, d. 1824, and possibly other members of his family. My understanding is that he is buried in the North Settlement Cemetery (not sure if this is the correct name or not) off Old Liberty Turnpike, somewhere between Monticello and Hurleyville. I've driven the road back and forth slowly and have been unable to find this burial ground. Is anyone familiar with this cemetery and its exact location?
