In Reply to: Dr. Kilmer from Binghampton, NY by Michael Roberts of 619

He had a son Willis, burried in a large crypt in the Floral Park Cemetary in Johnson City, NY. I will take a look and see who is in the crypt with him. I believe there is an Ida Sharpes in there also and another women.

There is much information on this family at the Roberson Museum in Binghamton. Willis owned the horse exterminator that is the the subject of "old bones" a childrens book from the 1950s.

I am related to him and my great granfather was his head engineer at the swamp root co. and at the Binghamton Press which Kilmer started when he became angry at the local paper that exsisted in 1901 in Binghamton.
