Israel Borden JUSTIN. DOD, the late 1950's. Buried in the Cemetary across Otego Creek in Mount Vision. Need Cemetary Name. His wife Bertha Ada Kinch JUSTIN CARD died in March 1980. Buried in same cemetary as Israel. Where can I find a copy of the obituary notice? I think she died in a nursing home either in Cooperstown, but the obituary notice would probably have been in the Oneonta Daily Star. Does the Oneonta Daily Star research obituary notices or have a searchable index? Israel and Bertha lived next to Glen Tilley's General Store there in Mount Vision. They moved to Mount Vision from Delaware County. Second name: Rene CARD
A copy of his obituary notice from the the Oneonta Star would help me find his sons. Rene died in the 1980's. Not sure just when. He probably died in a nursing home. He lived many years in Hartwick and then moved to Mount Vision when he married Bertha JUSTIN in the early 1960's.

My ggg-grandfather, John JORDAN born March 9, 1764 (don't know where); married probably in Orange Co., NY 1785 to Julia SWARTOUT who was born 1769 d/o Jacobus SWARTOUT. Jacobus was living in 1785 in Sugar Loaf, town of Warwick, Orange Co., NY and assume his 16-year-old daughter, Julia, was living with him at the time of her wedding. John JORDAN does NOT appear in the 1790 census of NYS as 1-2-1...as he would having had two males born to Julia by census time 1790. By 1800, John/Julia and family residing in Cherry Valley, Otsego Co., NY beside her father, Jacobus, and her brother, Moses...She died between 1807 and 1810. An unnamed male child born to her in 1807 and she does not appear in the 1810 census with John. John continued to reside in Cherry Valley until about 1848 when he it was thought he joined three of his sons in the town of Wirt, Allegany Co., NY but having recently found his will probate in Cooperstown, county seat, Otsego Co., learned he died town of Pike, Wyoming County, NY which is where one of his three daughters had settled. He died 1/26/1850 and is buried on lot of my gg-grandfather, Jacob JORDAN, in Mount Hope Cemetery, Friendship, Allegany Co., NY (town in which I was born and brought up) Issue of this marriage:
MICHAEL who stated in 1855 census for Steuben Co., NY that he had been born in Orange Co., NY. WILLIAM who settled Steuben Co. JESSE who settled Steuben Co. All of these three died in Steuben County, NY. BETSEY - married Sebastion WELLER and lived in Canajoharie, Montgomery Co, NY ISAIAH - migrated from Otsego to Steuben Co. as young lad with his brother, Michael and lived with Michael until he married Polly Dakin, d/o Elisha...so after marriage, Elisha Dakin and Isaiah with bride migrated to town of Wirt, Allegany Co., NY and bought virgin land there. JOHN and JAMES both settled in early 1820's in Cuba, Allegany Co., NY. JULIA MARGARET - married Charles Phelps and settled Pike, Wyoming Co., NY ANDREW - migrated from Otsego Co. to Allegany Co. buying land adjacent to his brother, Isaiah in town of Wirt. JACOB - my gg-grandfather also migrated from Otsego Co. to Allegany Co. buying land adjacent to that of Isaiah. SALLY - married John Dygert and lived Canajoharie, Montgomery Co, NY UNNAMED SON - probably died at birth... Tradition among family members is that the JORDAN clan came from Ireland, but I've no proof one way or another. I've analyzed ALL Jordans who lived in Orange County, NY before, during and after Revolution and find no connection with my John JORDAN. Julia, wife of John, had two brothers, Aaron and Moses SWARTOUT who married at the Presbyterian Church, Goshen, Orange Co., NY but no record of John Jordan or Julia Swartout being baptized, married or ever attending this church. I've pretty much ruled out the possibility of my John JORDAN being a YORDON (Palatine family who came to Mohawk Valley between 1709-1711).... I've not ruled out possibility that my John JORDAN may have been product of a JORDAN family who were Tories and fled to Canada...he returning after the Revolution. There was such a family in Westchester Co., NY -- John JORDAN born Scotland in 1729 descendants....but my John not part of this family.
