Joyce's Search Tip - December 2007 -
Do You Know that you can search just the 860 pages of Chemung County Cemetery Records on the site by using the Cemeteries -Chemung button in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? If you use that partition follow these steps to search just one cemetery
1. Choose Cemeteries - Chemung
2. Enter part of the cemetery name [ie Comfort or Carr] AND a surname.
3. Choose the Find ALL Words option. Then it will find just the pages with that surname in the one cemetery you indicated. 
Tom Flynn Walker of Pine City obtained this listing from the Chemung County Historical Society and retyped it for the web page. Joyce M. Tice formatted it for presentation online.

I just returned from Elmira and visited the Woodlawn National Cemetery thanks to the wonderful research we found on this website.  Finally, after
several months of looking, my son found our relative's name in your website and that he was buried in the cemetery there. He is listed as A.S. Colton,
but actually his real name is Alexander S. Coltrane.  He is my great-great grandfather.  Brian McCade at the cemetery was most helpful.  Thank you for all your work.  I am trying to find out more about my relative as to why he was a prisoner,etc.  We do not have any information, nor is there anyone we know of to talk with about this.  Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated. Thought you might be interested to know that I now live in Alexander Coltrane's house, parts of it built in 1850's. Sincerely, Libby Rich, CSR

My name is Linda Dantzler LeMaster. I  Iive in Florence, S.C. In researching my family, I came across the fact that my great-grandfaher had been a prisoner in Elmira and had died there. This is simply to inform you that his name was Benjamin M. Dantzler.  He is listed as "D" M. Dantzler.  Thank you so much for helping to prepare this information.
                                           Sincerely Yours,
                                               Linda D. LeMaster 

I was born and grew up in North Carolina but have lived since 1960 in Syracuse. For the first time, my daughter and I visited the Confederate cemetery at Elmira last month and found the two ancestors we, through her genealogical research, knew were buried there: W.G. Clifford and William Collet. One thing jumped out from the alphabetical list of burials on your excellent Elmira prison camp pages. The date of death for Clifford, W.G. is entered as 05/12/98. I'm sure the 98 should be either 65 or 64. The entry for Collet, William, brother-in-law of Cliffford, W.G., is 02/18/65. Perhaps someone was entering the information in 1998 and typed that year instead of the 1864 or '65 it should be. It was a moving experience to see the graves. I grew up with  the family story that of two Collets and two Cliffords, three died at  Gettysburg and one made it back home. One did indeed die at Gettysburg  and one return to North Carolina. Surely family members knew about that  two died at POWs at Elmira, but we never heard about it.
