Thanks for the info-----I searched the Genform archives for info on Margison's in Sullivan County and found Ella's obit. I was able to find the Van Keuren cemetery, and found a great deal of info on the Margisons who moved from Greene County to Sullivan County abt. 1848. Someone was kind enough to find a 1857 map of Bethel which showed the Margison Homestead, and their graves at the Old Bethel Cemetery. George Margison b. 1872, Ella's brother, married Gertrude Van Keuren, Franklyns cousin, and I am still finding other Van Keuren connections to the Margison line. Any info you might have would be appreciated, as next spring I want to visit the area and look for the graves of the rest of the Margison clan.
