My name is David L. Gardiner.I was born in Bath, New York where most of my relatives still live.Not to mention, family buried in Coopers Plain...
My great grandmother was LEONA COLEGROVE [b. January 06, 1883; d. May 11, 1961; buried in Avoca, Steuben Co., N.Y. 14809] who married (1) Benjamin Henry Ferguson but later married (2) Spencer M. Partridge.
Leona's parents were GEORGE (BENJAMIN) COLEGROVE and Elnora A. Fox...both of Prattsburg, N.Y..They were married September 28, 1877(I'm told that "Benjamin" was a Veterinarian--after being a public school superintendent for the Bath schools.
Leona's siblings were Charles, d. June 05, 1954 and buried at Mount Hope Cemetery in Rochester, N.Y. (m. Florence Ella, d. March 01, 1960), and George and Vada.
Seeing you were born in Coopers Plain were they all lived I though maybe you might be connected somehow?Does any names sound familiar?
Any help on your Colegrove ancestors would be really appreciated.
By the way, I have a very old group picture of the Colegrove family when they were only young adults (with ma and pa Colegrove).
Thanks, Rev. David L. Gardiner www.my-ged.com/gardiner
