Re: John LaDew burial place

There is no such place as 'Ostisco'.

Do you mean Otisco, Onondaga County?

His burial place is not listed in either the SAR's or DAR's published patriot graves registers.

That probably means that a gravestone for him was not found when so many cemeteries were being read in the 1920s and 1930s. A large proportion of people were buried with no long-lived marker erected. Even when graves were marked, stones can fall or break and be covered with soil and sod.

Many graveyards have been vandalized. No few family graveyards have had their stones removed by a subsequent owner who wanted to cultivate the site or use it for pasturage.

He was probably buried on his home farm or that of his nearest relatives. If you consult the County land records, you may be able to discover where precisely he lived.
