Boni is my aunt. We are both researching our family tree. Erastus' father was John D. Colf born in 1787 in NY and died Feb. 19, 1870 in Ashford, NY. His wife, Edna, was born about 1794, also in NY. I don't know when they left Monroe co. to settle in Ashford, but I have seen a listing of land owners in Ashford in a History of Cattaraugus county as owning land there as early as 1843. John and Edna's children, that I know of are: William W., John, Albert G., Delivan, Erastus, and Gehial. I would like to find out where the family originally came from, what nationality they were, what church they attended, etc. If you would like the dates for the above people and a complete list of the Colf's buried in the Bellows Corners cemetary (which is also called the Nagel or Colf cemetary) you can e-mail me and I would be happy to give them to you. By the way, what is your relationship to Erastus?
