Notes: Evert W. Personius was the gggg-grandfather of the digital transcriber of this cemetery. He was born in Ulster County, son of Revolutionary War veteran Jacobus and Rachel (Keyser) Personius, and served in the War of 1812 at Brooklyn Heights. Evert moved from Marbletown to Caroline, Tompkins County with his father Jacobus and brothers by 1818.
Prior to 1840 several of the Personius brothers moved to Catlin and settled along Johnson Hollow Road. Also buried with Evert, but not noted by this reader, is his first wife Catherine Sloughter/Sluyter, who died in July 23, 1857, aged 62 years. I have recent photographs of the headstones.
Several of Evert and Catherine's children are buried in this cemetery. Julia Ann Personius was my ggg-grandmother and the first wife of Jacob H.Perry, of the Caroline, Tompkins County Perrys. Son Ephraim Personius may have been Julia's twin. Richard Personius was Evert's youngest son, and married to Mary Jane Johnson, daughter of neighbor Ezekiel Johnson. Also buried nearby is Richard's daughter, whose stone reads "In memory of Elnetta", died Oct. 7, 1864, aged 4 yrs. 9 mo. 21 days. I have a recent photograph of this large stone.
Lucius Personius was the grandson of Evert's brother Isaiah Robeson Personius and Helena Sluyter, and son of John Personius and Cassandra Greenman. Lucius' wife was Ann H. Rosekrans, daughter of James and Huldah (Winton) Rosekrans.
Oliver P. Livingston was brother to Louisa, who became the second wife of my ggg-grandfather Jacob H. Perry on January 1, 1854, Theodore V. Wellar, j.p. presiding. Elahan Livingston's stone should be corrected to Elanah,wife of John and mother of Louisa, Oliver and Roana Livingston Rosekrans.
John Sloughter is the eldest son of Thomas and Mary Personius Sloughter,younger sister of Evert Personius.

I noticed that both pages for the Maple Grove Cemetery in Catlin Township, Chemung County, have an omission. The HORNING tombstone for Almina and Abraham Horning has a third name on it. The front of the stone has my Great - Great Uncle Frederick Brown on it. The information is: Frederick Brown Born Oct. 31, 1849 Died Jan. 17, 1871. The right side of the marker has Almina Horning's name, birth and death dates and "wife of Abraham D. Horning". The back of the marker has Abraham D. Horning and his birth and death dates. Behind the large tombstone are several small markers with Fred, Abraham and Almina's name on them.
I suspect, but have not been able to verify, that Frederick and Almina may have been married a short while, until his death. Later, Abraham married Almina. My guess is that Almina wanted her name between her two husbands, and that is why she is on the side, between them.
Fredericks name is very prominent on the stone, so I have no idea how both cemetery readers could have missed it. I am attaching a photo of the stone.
Thanks for a GREAT site! jim brown
