from the notebooks of Amy Gavette
transcribed by Les and Dorothy Howland, California

The following records are courtesy of the Roxbury Library Associations History Room. Hard Copies of such records are available for viewing and duplication during normal library hours. This compilation is from the notebooks of Amy Gavette and was done in the 1960s. It was manually typed on typing paper. Needless to say some of it is faded and coping it is difficult. If dates don't match you may have to go to the Roxbury Library and see the originals, they too are starting to fade. This is not a public library, they run on support from their patrons and the History room is run by donations, and for such a small room it is packed full of information on the town of Roxbury and some Delaware county information. Vesti Snyder, Roxbury

Note: Les, Dorothy and I have been informed that in one particular incidence (one family), there are many inaccuracies in this compilation. This may prove to be the case throughout. As always, please use only as a jumping off spot for further research. As of today, September 21, 1999, there is another database of the Walton Cemetery online. Please work between the two to help solve your 'ancestral search'. Thank you! Joyce Riedinger.
