Carol is the mother of Carolyn (DNA Confirmed)

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)

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. At first they had thought she had Leukemia, and by the time they discovered it was bone cancer, it had spread fast and aggressively. 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. And also the day she told me of my linage, and other confessions, that all mothers make to her children before they past. 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 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. And since all demand a copy of my mother's birth and death certificate, BEFORE I am even recognized, if ever and if then, you will have to ask him for it. 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 how the state of New York determine paternity, as my father's name has been on all 3 of our birth certificates since the day we were born

I do know the date my parents wedded, it was February 12,1963, they were my own mother's words to my own ears. However, I am refused the documentation or any disclosure to obtain the certificate myself, or I would post it to display this. Because their are those still in denial.

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 is all fairness, it is the town of Coeymans and Village of Ravena. The Village is within the Town ... LOL
