I am looking for information about my grandfather, Joseph W. BORDEN. His name is listed in the 1920 census for Green Township in Chenango County. He was 73 years old in 1920 and was working for wages as a watch repairer. My father, Parker G. BORDEN, his only son, was living in California when Joseph died a few years later. Parker died in 1947 when I was only 15 and I never learned anything about my Grandfather except his name. I am assuming that he died in Chenango County and thought perhaps that he is buried there or that his death might be recorded in some document there and might even tell who his parents were. I would greatly appreciate any infomation that you may have.

Joseph married Mary Ann (BARBER) CHAMPLAIN from Downsville in Delaware county in 1878 but they lived separately most of their married life. Joseph was her 2nd husband. Mary Ann is buried beside her first husband, a Dr. CHAMPLAIN, in Downsville.

Looking for information on the MERRIHEW family of Chenango Co, NY. I have them in Sherburne, Norwich, Four Corners, etc. I can't seem to find them in the cemetery listings here online.
The first settler of this line I find in Chenango Co is John MERRIHEW 1779-1863 and his wife Phebe WRIGHT (1781-1843). They had 14 children, so there should be at least one grave in the area for them, but my digging has produced nothing.
