Dan Walker Fri Sep 5 21:25:41 2003
I'm interested in learning if anyone has come across a grave stone for Coone WILLIAMS? "Coone" has also been spelled as McCoon, McKane, Macoone, etc. Coone WILLIAMS was born in So. Kingston, RI in 1735. After the Rev. War, Coone moved to Columbus/New Berlin, NY to join his sons, Henry, James, Daniel and Benjamin. Coone was living with Henry in the 1810 US Census and had his own place next to Henry's in the 1820 Census. Coone's name was spelled "Cone" in the 1820 census. Based on an account of Coone's grandson, Randall WILLIAMS, Coone WILLIAMS died at his NY home at the age of 100. Thus, Coone should be buried somewhere close to Columbus or New Berlin, NY. Coone may have been living with a woman named Anna CRANSON or CRANSTON in1820 as well. Coone is not buried with his son Henry, as Henry's grave has been found in Lamb's Corners Cemetery. If you have any info. on a possible grave siting of Coone WILLIAMS, please contact me.
Regards, Dan

Does anyone have descendent information for Ephraim P. BROWN (b. 13 Nov 1800 Stonington, New London, Connecticut; d. 21 Jan 1885 Pharsalia, Chenango, New York) and Orilla (HANKS or HAKES ?) ? m. 29 Apr 1827. They are buried in Pharsalia Center Cemetery. The on-line cemetery index suggests that Catherine KENYON buried near them may be their daughter ????

Ephraim was a son of Nathan and Eunice BROWN. I have some sketchy info that suggests that they may be my ggg-grandparents.
Thanks, Teresa tbc8@cornell.edu
