KENNARD Artifacts--Oak Hill Cemetery
Excerpt from photocopy of record of Oak Hill Cemetery, Nyack, New York
It is unclear what bearing this information has. However, it was provided by Mildred Evelyn (Livingston) Johansen 1, presumably because it was among her mother's effects (which is the basis for other information we have about Martin VanTine). A handwritten "list" (in what we believe is Mildred Evelyn Johansen's writing) implies that George Albert Kennard and Catherine A. are the parents of Sarah Kennard. (This may be interesting in relation to the 1860 Federal Census:
1860 Federal Census, NYC, NY 9th Ward, 2 dist, 26 June 1860 p.
Martin L. Vantine 34 M Provisions b. NY
Sarah " 24 F "
Eugene " 04 M "
Chas " 02 M "
Cath/e A. Kendall 53 F "
Could there be an error in the census data and "Cath/e A. Kendall 53 F" is really Sarah's mother and named Catherine A. Kennard?) Anyway, the Oak Hill Cemetery information is transcribed below.
