I am having trouble finding any death records for my great grandmother, Emily Evans Roberts and her family.

Parents: Hannah Thomas (1869-?) and John J Evans (1867-1941)
Birth: 27 Nov 1896 in Bethesda, Caernarvonshire, Wales
Death: 1959 in Granville, New York.

Siblings: Edward, Stephen (1895-?), Myfanwy (1901-?), Olwen (1904-1986), and Charlotte (1911-?).

Married Hugh Roberts (1894-?) about 1919.
Children: Florence Jones (1916-?), Evelyn Waynick(1925-P) and Elinor Retallack (1927-P).

My grandmother says Emily and serveral family members are buried in the Granville Cemetery but I have found no cemeteries by that name. Can anyone help?

Granville is located in Washington County, NY. I can find a few cemeteries listed for Granville on Find a Grave, none by the name of Granville Cemetery. Try posting your request on the Washington County, NY message board. Perhaps someone there can assist you.

Margaret "Peg" R. Jenks has published books for all the town in Rutland Co., VT, and also Granville, Washington Co., NY because she has personal connections there.

In the book "Granville, Washington County New York Cemetery Inscriptions" Hugh J. and Emily are listed on page 67 in the Mettowee Valley Cemetery in Granville. The "cemetery is located north of where the rail road crosses North Street and half a mile north of the blinker light in the center of the village." Emily's dates are 1896 - 1960 and Hugh's 1894 - 1927. Emily's parents and brother Olwen as well as a number of other Evans are listed, as are a number of Roberts. Peg Jenks email is mjenks @ capital.net [spaces inserted around the @ to discourage spambots] if you want to check on availablity of the book.

Thank you very much for the prompt reply about the grave sites of Asa and Sally Hemenway. Now if I could only figure out why they went to Granville NY from New Hampshire in the first place.

Granville had work. I'll see if I can find out info for you. My father grew up there and his family had been there from early 1800's.
