Reuben Fenton
Governor of New York State 1865 - 1868

Born: July 4, 1819 in Carroll, Chautauqua County, New York
Died: August 25, 1885 in Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York
Buried: Lake View Cemetery, Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York
Date of Visit: May 6, 2006
I had to go to a meeting in Westfield, NY (near Erie, Pa.) so I decided to take the long way home and go through Jamestown and Olean, NY and pick up two Governor's gravesites. They were really helpful in the office.

Governor Fenton is not the most famous resident of the cemetery. That distinction is held by Lucille Ball of
I Love Lucy.

While I was at Lake View Cemetery, I was able to stop and visit the graves of my great-great grandparents, Charles Quist and Augusta Amelia Quist
