Charlott Eglin: Charlotte Eglin, 79, of County Highway 110, Broadalbin, died Tuesday afternoon (12 February 2002) at St. Mary's Hospital in Amsterdam. She was born on May 9, 1922 in Broadalbin (Fulton County), a daughter of Roy and Pearl Baird Warner and was a lifelong resident. Mrs. Eglin attended local schools. She was employed at the Elmer Little Glove Factory in Johnstown for 19 years and later operated a glue machine at Mohawk Furniture in Broadalbin. Mrs. Eglin retired in 1985.
        She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Emmett W. Eglin, whom she married on Jan. 24, 1944; two sons, William E. Eglin and David L. Eglin, both of Broadalbin.

Another Eglin...
        Schenectady: Jane E. Eglin, 76, of Western Parkway, died February 12, 2002 at St. Mary's Hospital, Amsterdam. Born October 8, 1925 in Gloversville. Survived by her husband, Kenneth Eglin; sons, John, Hoff, and Charles Eglin. Daughters, Sharon Stanton and Carol Wallace.

"Eglin Family History", from the Town of Mayfield(Fulton County), I found a reference of my own particular interest. This item made reference to Adelia Eglin, age 20, school teacher, living with Nathaniel Meade (Mead), age 74, farmer. Along with a listing of Mary Meade (Mead) 33, and Joseph Mead 27. Nathaniel Mead was my gg grandfather and lived along the Mountain Road in the town of Mayfield. About an eighth of a mile up the road from his farm was the little country school that served his rural area. Thus, the reason that Adelia Eglin was boarding with him and his family. Nathaniel Mead was a very unique man, of whom I have so m uch information. In fact, I have two likenesses of him on the walls in my home. He was elected a Deacon in our local Baptist Church in 1821 and served without interruption in that position 'til he passed away 53 years later. His youngest son Joseph, (mentioned in the reference listing) kept diaries from 1861 until he passed away in 1924. Both he and his sister Mary Electra never married and thus his diaries passed along through his brother Charles and now are with me.

#18 _ Edward Smith d. 1884 (b. 1830 on card) Evidently he was in a vault from Mar. 4, 1884 to internment May 1884.
#19 _ Catherine Eglin Smith d. Mar. 3, 1906. Catherine d. @85_6_25 in New York City of pneumonia.
#20 _ Sarah M. Smith d. Jan. 19, 1926

* _ #14 also has listed Marianne Fuller Smith d. June 9, 1937. What the story on this one is, I don't know. There wasn't a stone that I could see. Perhaps it was a baby. It also appears that there is a space after #20 for another burial inside plot.
The front row has 12 places for burials, back has 20 and appear to be space for 2 people each, maybe this explains two burials in #14.
I asked to have Catherine's stone reseated. It appears otherwise in good shape.

Jeremiah Olmsted purchased his property in what was then Wells, later Hope, Montgomery Co, later Hamilton Co., in 1793. I copied his mortgage in the Fonda, NY Court House two years ago. On the same page there was another mortgage to Aaron Olmsted, both granted by Jeremiah Van Rensselaer, agent for the State for selling Loyalists's property. This property was along the river. I could not find a discharge of the Aaron mortgage, and in fact there was no other mention of him in the records. Gideon Olmstead came along a few years later. Again there is no other record of him, although it is said he was the first to die in the area. Jeremian's oldest children were born before 1793, but I have no idea where.
Also, could I include your files in an edition of my Newsletter, Jabez Olmsted of Ware? You can see several back issues at
