Re: Need researcher in Utica for death certificate

Hi Cynthia,

I really appreciate you replying. I sent for the death certificate to Albany for years 1882 and 1883 no luck. I called the Town of Floyd, (he lived there on the 1880 census) and died 1882 and they said they didn't keep records until 1886. Charles Yott is buried at St. Joseph Cemetery in Utica, and I found a very nice lady who checked the death book and found his actual death date of 4/26/1882. Thats all that is noted. I'm not sure how to go about searching the Vital Record indexes for New York State. I thought that was done went I sent off to Albany.

The problem I guess is I'm not sure exactly what town he died in. Wouldn't Utica have death records for all towns? Even if they did, he died before official records were being kept.

I called the cemetery where he is buried and they don't have him listed, just his daughter (she is buried in a family plot, daughter, father and mother), thats funny because I have a picture of this family plot, that shows all 3 (but yet the cemetery records only show that daughter having died in 1954) that a wonderful person took for me and emailed it to me. The lady who took the picture told me that St. Joseph Cemetery records are real bad especially for the very earlier burials.

I'm at a brick wall. The lady who indexed St. Joseph and emailed me the picture told me she is going to look for an obituary and maybe that will help me further my search.

I'm getting a lot of help, including you, thanks! I think if I get that obituary it might give me some clues.

Renee
