Hello Rod
     I just stumbled across your web site while doing a search on Peru, NY. I noticed that you have a Nicholas Curtis Bigelow who married Ann Eliza Clark in 1843.  I'm trying to research the Elisha and Praxa Clark family of Peru.  They had at least 3 children born there:  Julius, Caroline Mary Ann, and Luther Drury.  Luther was born 11 Aug 1816 and married Elsie Maria Hawks 12 Jun 1844 in Peru.  After that I have nothing more on Elisha or Praxa - no marriage or death dates or anything.
     We're going to be doing some sightseeing in Vermont (have a B & B in Swanton) and then driving over to the Peru/Plattsburgh/Beekmantown area as that's where my relatives moved to.  I was wondering if you can give me any hints as to perhaps a cemetery that was often used in perhaps the mid 1800's in case Elisha & Praxa are buried in Peru or anyplace else I might look for local records.  I'll be in Peru on a Sat. Thank you so much for any help you might be able to give.
