Our family purchased a hunting camp in 1958 in Hillsgrove. We spent a lot of time on the "sock" fishing, swimming, and freezing.

Since I do genealogy and love history I thought I'd read what you wrote on your family. I enjoyed the reading as it was written well, and I was able to picture your people and the places you mentioned. I too, have similar family histories. Dottie Cote

Our family is descended from the "Oechsle" Exleys. There is an August Exley in the records somewhere. I'll try to find him. Also, I'm fascinated by the connection to Trinity Lutheran Church as I have served as a Lutheran pastor for the past 34 years. CRE

Congratulations to you, your site is magnificent. You express the warmth of a light, kindled in the human heart, deep down, that has been lost throughout the ages. Thank you for your work of art. I have not been to PA, but was surprised by your mention of Old Hartwick, Fly Creek, are you indeed talking about Otsego County, Cooperstown area? I have fallen in love myself, with people like yours, from Fly Creek, NY, my ancesters. I can go no further back than Elizabeth Cushman, son of Lee Cushman lineage of the Mayflower. Elizabeth married a Conklin, they had a son (Francis) Benton Conklin, wife Elizabeth Sherman I believe, my Grandmother Lulu Ruth Conklin Ledwith Light from Cooperstown was their daughter. Might you have any knowledge of them? They are all burried in the Fly Creek Cemetery. Keep writing, designing and bringing us back to where the heart truly lies. Most Sinc

I am as inteested in geneology and history as Mr. Hatton. We Exley's may be related , but our Exley's came from Yorkshire England. The Oeschleys came from Austria and Bavaria. the ones I know of came in 1734 and was the second colony in Georgia just north of Savannah on the Savannah River. They came as they were perscuted for their Luthern religion and would not give it up, so they sacrificed all that they had and came to Georgia--- America. They are called Sazburgers as the first of them came from salzburg. My particular Exley's came from Yorkshire., having been there since before 1066 . John came from London and married a Mary Wooten, lived and prospered in Savannah. He died in 1800 and is buried in the Colonisal Cemetary in Savannah. His son John was very young when his father died He becamse the foster son of a well to do farmer in the next county from Chatham , Savannah, Effingham . There he lived , married Eliza Mallette. and down to me and my greatgrandson. I want to read more of what you have written Mr. Hatton . Thank you. Ruth Exley McCormick

My Great grandfather lived in Cherry township. I found him there in 1850 and he died there in 1883. his son, Michael Redding died there on the farm in 1912. My grandfather Joseph was born on the farm in 1851. He left cherry twp. Sullivan Co. about 1869 to follow the lumber trade. In 1883 in Gaines Pa. In 1890 Westport, Pa Clinton Co. Then to Cross Fork, Potter, Co. where my mother grew up. She went to lock Haven Normal School and became a teacher in Butula McKeen Co. where her parents had gone following the lumber. When she married in 1921 My parents came to Philadelphia. I enjoyed your story. I'm from Philadelphia where we have many beaytiful churches. but in 1992 when I came to Dushore I found St. Basil's the most beautilful I ever saw. also that is where I first learned about the Loyalsock Creek

Thank you, Ernie, for sharing your story. Life has been rather hectic and I finally took the time to read it. I hope you expand upon it--it's a wonderful legacy for your grandchildren. I, too, have memories of Sullivan Co. in another less frantic era --walks along the country roads and grandparents who knew a harder, but very satisfying way of life.
