1. Carolyn is the daughter of Carol (Brown) Alderson DNA confirmed This makes Carol the mother of Carolyn.

My mother was born in Cincinnatus, Cortland County, New York. Which is now known as Cortland New York, on May 20, 1947.

Her parents were Wilson G Brown and Myrtle I Eggleston-Brown.

Her sister were Mary Brown-Mingle, and her adopted sister Jackie Harvareth-Binghamton

She married my father Richard G Hammond on February 20,1945 ( or so she told me, as we had a private joke about the number 20, look at her DOB and mine, then the wedding date, you might get private joke). Then the day before she died, she tells me it was February 12, 1963. Say what ?

She gave birth to 3 children ( read her obituary posted that appeared in the Albany Times Union), I was one of them, and the oldest of the those 3 children, her only female child.

When her youngest child and 3rd child was born, my father moved us to Coeymans New York, Westerlo Street into a 2 floor .. 2 bedroom apartment that was converted into a 3 bedroom. It was here that the marriage between Richard and her broke .. and ended, some 300+ miles from family and friends, and well over a 3 hour drive back to it (depends how fast you go), with no transportation. In the early 70's .. much happened, but in the end, and for our own safety, we relocated to Ravena New York because of it. A small village, within the Town of Coeymans, 1 mile - by 1 and a 1/2 mile in size, and surrounded by the Town, literally.

It was here, on August 25,1979, in Mosher Park, under a pavilion, now long gone, that she wedded Alan J Alderson Sr, on a very warm and humid, sunny day. Despite the sadness they both felt, due to Elvis having died, just a few weeks prior to the wedding, as he was both their idol, and almost canceled the wedding plans because of it.

It wasn't long after this, the early 80's, that she was stricken with Breast Cancer, and it had entered her Lymphoid muscle of her right arm, by the time they found it. But she beat it .. that time around. The heavy Chemo did take it's toll on her body, though. And 6 years later, it came back with a vengeance .. in the form of Bone Cancer. She fought long and hard against the impending doom, of a life sentence for her by the means of Cancer. Once it had progressed into her brain, we all knew what the final sentence would be, so sadly ..

It was on May 15,1997, at about 8:45 pm and 42 seconds, on a Thursday ( if memory is right), a rainy night as she loved the smell of rain, that she finally lost her long battle against it. Surrounded by those who loved her, as she breathed her last breathe.She was laid to rest at the Chestnut Lawn Cemetery, in a beautiful silvery blue casket, with silver embellishments, located in New Baltimore New York, with a very small funeral procession, and surrounded by those that loved her, and a few friends.

Years later, and per my youngest sibling, my mother's sister Mary, did show, but never spoke to me, nor did she identify herself to me. Nor did she when we had all gone to the restaurant afterwards, which is now recently closed, and was located on Route 9W. The funeral meal that all families attend afterwards, was split in 2 parts, and it was my fault. I refused to go to my mother's home with Alan there, no other reason but that sole reason. And Jackie was not there either, and again, per the youngest sibling.


  • I witnessed it myself, as I am her only daughter, and held her hand with the youngest sibling for her last breath. The oldest of the 2 other siblings, has taken all photos of our childhood, and her family bible, even from the youngest. And has declared himself ruler over the family, bullpucky mindset is my opinion. Fair warning though, per what that same sibling told me, "women are not meant to know anything, because it doesn't matter what a woman's lineage is, cause it means nothing, the men's linage is what matters, and not the woman's, their lineage means nothing", and I do quote it, as he shouted it in my face, and a few other things .. recently. So feel free to ask someone who has demanded I keep all of his information private, but yet, never showed at her deathbed .. nor her funeral, as he refused all her requests, she was a woman after all. Do ya'll get it now ? Please see section 12 for this case, as there is more listed there. However, the date of birth is incorrect. She was born on the 20th of May of that year, not the 5th as it states.

this is because there are those who are shouting common law marriage between my parents .. nope. My birth certificate would not have my father's name upon it if they were not married. Nor would it declare my mother's name as her maiden name. Here is why ... .. where it states ...

Does New York Recognize Common Law Marriage?

New York law does not allow common law marriage regardless of how long a couple has been cohabiting. In New York, common law marriage was eliminated by a state law in 1938. While this is long enough ago that most people married by NY common law marriage have since died, common law marriages from before 1938 are still recognized as valid by the state.

She told me a few stories of her dog Buster when she was a child and how he followed her everywhere, and forever getting into things. Much to everyone's digressions at times, she would sneak him at times to sleep with her upon her bed at night, then sneak him out so she would not be discovered.

    New York State finally sent me a copy of my mother's birth certificate, please note the correct information. Which matches the same information I have posted about my mother. Plus, the DNA sample I provided for testing, and not my mother's DNA sample, matches her parents. I AU (X match) test match her father, and AU and MT full test match her mother's line.

    A little birdy told me that a certain person had issues with the first name of my mother and her date of birth. My mother went by the name of Carol, but her legal name was Carolyn, as is mine. And the reason for the different years of birth, was due to her obtaining a copy of her birth certificate to wed Alan, only the year had been a error that she never changed when she finally received it. She never corrected it as she never thought it would be the issue that is has been made into. Her mindset, she had waited long enough to obtain the one she did, that she opted not to wait longer for a corrected one.

    Since there are those who are lost, and don't know where my little town with American Pride is .. here ya go

    So you see, Mosher Park, which is where Alan and my mother wedded, is nowhere near Esperance, thank you very much. But in all fairness, it is the town of Coeymans and Village of Ravena. The Village is within the Town ... LOL
