My g-g-g-uncle, John B. Conley, wife, and son are buried in the Ovid Union Cemetery. John B., was born in 1854 and died in Seneca Co. in 1933. Sarah J. was born in Auburn, NY in 1859 and died in Seneca Co. in 1945. and Hugh, 1879-1944,was married to Anna Murphy, 1876-1926. The Seneca Co. Farm and Rural Directory, 1938, lists Sarah J.

The Business Directory of Seneca Co., 1894-95, lists Anna Murphy as a kitchen day attendant at Willard State Hospital. Buried in the Ovid Union Cemetery under the same headstone are: (g-g-grandfather) Edward Davis (1831-1903); (g-g-grandmother) Susan Walker (1833-1909); (g-grandfather) John A. Davis (1853-1908).

COVERT Byron Bray, April 11, 1999
Seeking information on the ancestors, descendants and families of PHEBE COVERT. She lived in Seneca County (then Cayuga County) from around 1790 until around 1833, marrying JOHN S. GRANT (b. 1788, NY). They both lived in or around this area until around 1835, when they moved to Michigan. They had five surviving children: Susannah Grant (m. Jacob BOICE, lived in Albany, N.Y. and/or New York City, N.Y.), Abram I. Grant (born c. 1811, in Seneca County, New York - m. Jane HARRIS - died 5 March, 1902, Adrian, MI), John Covert Grant (born c. 1819, probably in New York - m. Wealthy PALMER - died 27 March, 1909, Dover, MI), Mary (Grant) FLAGLER (married William W. Flagler and moved to Springfield, Illinois), and Darius Simpson Grant (b. 1830 - m. Minerva BOVEE - d. 1864, Dimondale, Eaton County, Michigan).
Abram Grant may have attended a seminary college in the Ovid area. Around 1835, Abram journeyed to Lenawee County, Michigan and was granted land there under the Land Grant Act of 1820. He then returned to Ovid and collected his parents and siblings and moved to Lenawee County. Susannah Grant appears to have already married Jacob Boice and to have remained in New York, and so did not make this move.
I have a great deal of information on their descendants and will be happy to share it.

CRAWFORD Earl P. Otto, May 5, 1998
I find Calvin Crawford in the 1810 US Census for Seneca Co. He would have been about 23 years old and his wife Mary Trowbridge a few years younger.

My quest however is primarily for Florilla Crawford who is either Calvin's sister or niece. I and my daughter have been pursueing this aggressively fo several years unsuccessfully but there has to be an answer somewhere.
