On July 1, 1933, Jack Myron was born to parents Earl and Rena Hendee in Binghamton, NY.

He spent his childhood through to young adult life under the loving care and guidance of his paternal grandparents; residence of the Town of Walton, NY.

Jack received his education and diploma from Walton Central High School where a natural athletic ability earned him "All Star" honors for top player performances in the competitive team sports; football, basketball, and baseball.

In 1953, Jack enlisted in the United States Air force after graduating high school. During his service time of 7 years, he was stationed overseas at Wiesbaden, Germany around the year- 1956. Jack became part of the 7100th Air Police Squadron, and it soon became known him to be a well celebrated athlete. This would be the contributing factor in how Jack was re-recruited; to serve his country playing baseball for team USA vs. the Germans.

Jack's life in the 1960's and 70's was spent mostly working his way up to management in the fast rising restaurant, bar, and casino industries while locating in California, Nevada, and later in the 1980's; the new owner of a bar business in his home state, New York.

When 60 yrs old, Jack changed gears to get work in the 1990's driving chartered bus tours for "Eastern Travel" out of Oneonta, NY , and the experience would later help to get him work driving bus for both, the Stamford and South Kortright School Districts of Delaware County, NY.

During the millennium years of life to follow, Jack retired, left Upstate NY, and would come to reside in Cape Coral, Florida at the home of his oldest child and daughter- Joann.

This personal choice was met with the reality of a rapid decline in his overall health, and finally- life's end. May God allow him the grant of mercy on his soul and everlasting peace-Amen

Graveside services with military honors will be held Saturday, September 25, 2021 at 12 Noon in the Prospect Hill Cemetery (Old Section) in Sidney, NY

    Notes from Sheldon Fisher.

  • Master of the Sloop Beaver II. Lost some of his property in the great Boston Fire of 1760. A child's arm chair and a matching adults chair were saved and is still in the family (2001-Shelton Fisher)

    The following was also written, however, John did not die in the 1780's at sea he was in fact living in Victor in 1810.

  • If you are attacked by a would-be assassin and your life is saved by the providential hand of a passing stranger, just give the man a pipe he can smoke — and if it's your best smoker to boot, he'll cherish it all of his days and pass it on to posterity. That's what happened to Capt. John Fisher, 18th Century tea trader, enroute to China, who stopped in India for an extra cargo. While witnessing a procession in honor of an Indian prince, he quickly turned the hand of a ruffian who tried to murder the potentate. So pleased was his majesty that he bestowed upon the captain his favorite pipe. Fifteen inches long, with a stem of carved horn, wood and ivory, and a porcelain bowl in the form of a turbaned head, the pipe has been handed down from one generation to another, finally reaching its present owner, J. Sheldon Fisher, of Fishers, N. Y., great-great, great-grandson of Capt. John. The adventuresome seafarer lived in Boston, overlooking the Common and according to family tradition, participated in a certain famous tea party. As the boxes were broken open, on that historic occasion, some of the tea spilled into the captain's boots. Arriving home from the "party," he and his wife, Mary, so the story goes, set aside their patriotic fervor, for the moment and stole into the attic for a quiet (and secret) cup of tea. Soon after Capt. Fisher set forth on a long voyage which proved to be his last. He is believed to have perished at the hands of Portuguese pirates upon whom he had sworn vengeance for a previous unfortunate encounter. His son Robert brought his family overland to the Irondequoit Valley In 1811 and died shortly after, when his son Charles became the head of the family, thus firmly fixing the name of Fisher's to the settlement where he had made his home.

  • Albert Wiltsee in 1897 wrote of his grandfather, John Wiltsie that "He went to see a strictly Dutch girl" to get married and therefore be released from bondage of Mr. Buley (marriage was the only way he was told). We assume this is Polly Burns, his wife, d/o Francis Burns. The following is about this Francis' father and uncle, Francis/Franz.

    In June 1746, while Franz Burns and his brother were hoeing in Cohoha cornfield, when they saw their barn on fire. On nearing their cottage door, they beheld a stack of French rifles and in their fright the brothers separated. One ascended the trail over the Kreigger Rocks and hastened up the valley to Fort Massachusetts, and the other turned up the river and met an ambuscade of warriors, who gave chase for his scalp. He plunged into the river and hid beneath piles of driftwood until the Indians retreated down the valley. The next morning, he rose from his hiding place and proceeded to the English fort, where to his surprise he found his brother.

    40 1810 - Marcellus,NY - living with husband Wm Foster (no Nathan Tanner in town).

Mr. Earll died upon his original farm and was succeeded by his son, William, who, upon his death, was followed by his son, Shepard. This is one of the very few instances in Marcellus of perpetuity of title and actual residence. Thorn Hill, situated in the southwest corner of the town, was named from Obadiah Thorn, a later comer, who was instrumental in establishing the post-office and mail route, and who was for many years a highly respected citizen and widely known as an extensive wool buyer. He subsequently removed to the Baldwin farm, near Skaneateles."

    Albert Wiltsee in 1897 wrote of his grandfather, John Wiltsie that "He went to see a strictly Dutch girl" to get married and therefore be released from bondage of Mr. Buley (marriage was the only way he was told). We assume this is Polly Burns, his wife. With this bit of info I find in the History of Hoosac Valley that early(pre1746) "squatter" of the area of Pownal and Hooasc Valley included a "Franz Burns and his brother" - Many family history online note that Polly, Hannah, John and Eleazor's father was a Mr.Burns of Scottish descendant. I fine this not true at all. The record referenced is Virginia immigration records and there is no proof that the Virginia Burns is the same Burns in the Pownal areas. I think the new 'leaf' thing on Ancestry has taken some folks to believe all the suggestions are fact - and once one person adds that data, it multiplies without basis in real facts and soon the real clues are lost or become clouded.

    My theory is that the Thorn Hill Burn's are descedants of Franz and/or his brother(unknown name) Burns that settled in the Hoosac Valley. Franz (Englishized to Francis - a common name in the Burns family).

    50 1820 in Marcellas also John, William, Solomon, William Hunt two away from Asa, Solomon also on same page, poss. brothers

  • 1830 census there is Solomon and William both born between 1781 and 1790. They are noted listed in the Hunt Family History (Ancestors and descendants of Samuel Hunt of Pauling, Dutchess County and Cambridge, Washington County, New York, Jerome D. Traver, 2005). I believe they are the link to Deborah, assumed siblings). Note that the Thomas Hunt that came to Marcellus (had Seneca(1786), Samuel(1784), Solomon(1797), David(1799) and others had a sister named had an Aunt named Deborah. Thomas' father was Samuel(1735-1800), of Cambridge, Washington Co., NY) - border near Vermont/Mass. It would appear that Solomon and William and Deborah are children of Samuel(1735)'s brother, unknown.

  • Ironically William Hunt(1715) had a daughter, Deborah(b.1746) that married Asa Haynes. William's son Daniel had a daughter, Deborah(b.22Sep1783, per Family Bible). Is this Deborah, our Deborah and her cemetery marker is incorrect? No one has a record of who this Deborah married, only that she was living in 1809 at the time of her father's will (in Ulster Co.,NY) 
  • Hunt, Deborah (I12213)
