Hoxie family around Madison County, NY

Surnames: Hoxie, Stanton
I am trying to trace my grandfather's mother, Edna Mae Hoxie. She was married to George Jasper Stanton. George was the principal of Richfield Springs High School around 1930, when my grandfather, Rexford Hoxie Stanton, would have graduated. George was also principal of Highland High School around Poughkeepsie, NY. Edna Mae Hoxie had 10 children, 9 survived to adulthood, her son Robert dying at age 2.

Rex, my grandpa, passed away in 1999 after marrying Elvira Lucy Tuttle and having 5 children, James, Michael, Judith, Elizabeth and Jean. Elvira still lives in Madison County, NY and is 85. My grandfather was not in contact with his siblings and this is about as much as I know about the Hoxies and Stantons.

We are descended from Edwin McMasters Stanton but I'm not sure exactly how. Thanks in advance to anyone who could give me any new info or leads on how I could go about obtaining new facts!

My grandmother and grandfather were Edna and George. My mother was their youngest child Rosemary. I met your grandfather Rex and grandmother Elvira as well as Judy when I was a preteen also a lot of the other siblings at one point or another. Nana and Papa used to have a big Thanksgiving dinner. I had always spelled Nana's (Edna's) middle name May, am not sure now which is correct. My mother had always said that in some way we were related to Elizabeth Barret Browning. After seeing your post I started searching again a little and found Papa's (George's) obit in the Oct 6th 1966 Oneonta Star. My mom had always said that there were 12 children, your post is the first I knew of Robert and the obituary reminded me of names I could not remember. It says that Papa was born @ Schuyler Lake 7/29/1886 (my Mom had said he was born @ South New Berlin) the date of death is 10/5/1966 (I had written down 10/4/66)Son of David and Ida(Musher)Stanton. He married Nana 9/1/1909 in Brookfield. The children are listed as Hilda Seclow of Clinton, Pauline Stevenson, Edna May Cottet, Nellie Whitford all of Syracuse, Rosemary Mayhew (my Mom) of Shokan, Ida Shaw of Kingston, David J. of Saint Petersburg Fla, Rexford of Madison, Willis of Syracuse, Charles of Union Springs. Also 23 Grandchildren and 2 Great Grandchildren. Papa is buried the paper says @ Burlington Flats Cemetary I don't know where Nana is buried possibly next to Papa. The obituary didn't mention Richfield Springs High, it did say he taught in the Binghamton School System and later served as principal in Kingston (near me), Oneida, Clayville and Leonardsville and supervising principal of Highland School Systems. I do not know much about Nana, when I was about 14 she had loaned me a quite lengthy family tree but I do not know what happened to it after that. A site I found @ has a listing which is likely Nana. It says DOB is 3/23/1888 (I have written down 3/22/1887) DOD is 10/1/1978 (I have written 10/24/1978) I know the death year is 1978 because It is was year my first daughter was born I did not go to the funeral, I missed my Mom and Aunt Nell when they came to tell me and go upstate. This listing has a Zip code of 13440 Rome, Essex County. That zip is actually Oneida County and I think I remember Aunt Nell saying something about the nursing home Nana was in and then mentioning Oneida, whether she meant the city or county I don't know. It also has a SSN listed as 130-42-0829. I hope this will be of some help and would appreciate knowing anything more that you may know and if I find out anything more I will gladly let you know. Thanks, Pat
