Scotchtown Cemetery, Erin, Chemung
The name, Park, Byson  should be Park, Byron
                 Park, Jennie  should be w/o Byron
                 Park, Tyrone  is not known as a son of Byron & Jennie.  Born 1912, too late to be son of Jennie.

Sarah Jane (Jennie) was a Rumsey. Keep up the good work.

Doug Rumsey

Thank you for your fantastic work.  My Mom, Marguerite M. Phelan, Born 1919, wife of Martin H. died January 25, 2002.  She is next to my dad in the Scotch town (Erin) cemetery.  I thought you might want this information to update your site. Respectfully submitted,  Martin J. Phelan, their oldest son. I am a prior Horseheads native, graduated at HHS in 1959.
