First of all, where did your John Redhead live/die...dates???? I will try and find something on him if you can give me where and when. May I ask where you are located...I'm in Fulton.

Second, I am not related to him at all. I am working on a project for the City of Fulton's 100th anniversary next year about the people who were important in Fulton's birth as a city...working with Canal Days committee connected with the historical society...actually I also work for the city. Who were they, where did they live, family connections, occupations, where buried, etc. He was one of my notable Fultonians.

You have given me a lot of information I did not have. I was looking for personal info. I will fill in what I have about both men that you didn't list...if you already have it, ok. I also just found a family sketch of him in an OLD book which provided additional info.

EDWIN - Born Brownville, Jefferson County, NY; Sarah Petty was the dau of Israel Petty, married in Port Byron, NY; in 1902 City Directory, he lived at 301 Buffalo St; parents came over from England after their marriage; had home at 102 S 3rd St (photo of house in one of Grace Lynch's books)...the house is still here (I have photo of it); all are buried in Mt Adnah Cemetery, Section 23 (have photos of graves); he graduated from Fairfield Seminary in 1869, then entered Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn...left for illness; attended Syracuse University, BA in 1874; failing eyesight made him abandon his law study under Judge Howland in Port Byron and he became a salesman for 5 yrs; in 1883 he built the first wood pulp mill in Fulton; secretary, treasurer, and manager of Victoria Paper Mills Co, later President of the co.; in 1890 he erected the 2nd paper machine; 1890-1901 he was President of Citizens National Bank; Director of Citizens Bank also; he donated a lot for the State Street Methodist Church and was the chief promoter of the church; a delegate to M.E. General Conference in Omaha in 1892; a trustee of Syracuse University; 1895 he was president of Library Board; he organized the Victoria Paper Mills with FG Weeks and was President of the Mills in 1897; 1921 M/M Redhead were in an auto accident (a notable fact of their time!).

THOMAS JOHN - (1851-1933) married Katherine A (1849-1923) 1902 city directory he was a contractor/ builder. (haven't worked on him much yet) In 1902 he lived in Fulton...when did John Redhead Thomas lived in Syracuse at that time?????

You said "they are buried in the Liverpool Cemetery"...I assume Liverpool, NY???

You can email me directly if you wish at
Thank you so much for all the information you gave me. Send me the info on Thomas and I'll see what I can find...
