I am in search of an obit for my 2 greats grandmother Laura Hamilton Story, and believe it may have been published in a Steuben County pulication as have not found it in Otsego, and she lived in both places. The below background may assist.

Laura Hamilton Story, daughter of Daniel Hamilton and Kezziah Keyes Hamilton. She was likely born in Steuben County where both her parents were buried. She married Burrel Story.

Burrel Story was a hatmaker. He was born in 1772 in Connecticut and buried in 1858 at Schuyler’s Lake, Exeter, Otsego.


Residences for Burrel Story and Laura Hamilton include Steuben County, NY (1800); Hartwick, Otsego, NY (1810); Norwich, Chenango, NY (1820); and Schuyler’s Lake, Exeter, Otsego, NY (1830 to 1858.)

Daniel Hamilton, Burrel’s father in law, was a revolutionary war vet and graduate of West Point. Laura and Burrel Story had 2 children Harriet Story Scott b. 1815 and Joseph Story b. 1834. Laura’s siblings were Almira, Artusa, Luman, Fanny, John, Mary “Polly,” Melinda, Kezziah.

Both Laura and Burrel Story are buried in the Old Cemetery at Schuyler’s Lake Exeter, Otsego. The Story children moved to the Chicago area where they are buried. Joseph Story was a dry goods salesman, and Harriet Story made confections. Joseph married Margaret McGown. Harriet married George Scott.
