"My name is Bob Mayhew and I live in San Antonio, TX. In 1958, I lived in Henrietta, NY, a suburb of Rochester. I graduated from Rush-Henrietta HS in June, 1958 and joined the army with 2 other guys from the area. One was named Dick (Richard) White and the other was named Tom Tracy. I traced Dick White to Spencerport, NY and am trying to get in touch with him to reunite and to join us in reunion of old Army buddies. Dick is about 76 years old, the same age as I am. If anybody knows of him, please give him my Email address. Thanks for your help." - Bob, firstname.lastname@example.org
"I am trying to find out how to research the history of the Monroe County Fair in 1960, specifically the races that were held and results. Thank you for any information." - Jim Griggs, JGRIGGS44@aol.com
"I served as Pastor of Ogden Baptist Church in Spencerport from 1999-2007. This was the first church I served after graduating from seminary, and when I set foot in Spencerport, I felt like I had truly found a wonderful new home. Although we didn’t live in the village itself, I spent many happy times walking on the canal, visiting friends, parishioners, and colleagues, and greatly enjoying the rich history and atmosphere of the area. When our daughter was small, we loved taking her to Springdale Farm, and to Abbott’s! I truly loved living and serving in Western New York, and the cherished memories of the people and places I came to know and love in Ogden and Spencerport will remain with me for life."
- Rev. Laura Dalton, Athens, OH
My husband and myself purchased our home in Spencerport, on Sandstone Drive in 1977. We had only been married for a few years, and had not started our family. The house was a 4 bedroom colonial, in much need of "Love and Attention" ! We knew no one from Spencerport, having grown up and schooled in the heart of Rochester. We were very unfamiliar with the entire "town and village" living.
Our new neighbors were more than the kindest people we could have ever asked for. One by one they came and introduced themselves, and each one had a significant story to relate to us having to do with the house that we recently purchased. We lived in that home for over 25 years, raised our 2 children and made the statement "It Takes a Village to Raise a Child" the absolute closest to our hearts.
In 2001 we sold that home, along with shedding many tears on my part, and built a new home, also in Spencerport. We have now lived in that home for 12 years. Our children have moved to other states, but absolutely love seeing pictures and hearing all the "Towny" news.
If anyone ever contemplates purchasing a home in Spencerport, I hope it would be the most wonderful place on earth for them to live as it has been for us. Our Village Main St. Is not modern and fancy by any means, but its what's on the inside that is true to your hearts. The merchants are honest and very welcoming when you utilize their places of business. Its small, but its full of love and devotion.
If we ever decide to leave this village, it will be one of the saddest days of my life. I love the short ride from the city of Rochester, where we both work, to the SPENCERPORT EXIT! Before your very eyes are hay stacks, farm silo's, farm market wagons, a beautiful canal, and a picturesque Gazebo in the heart of town. All that and the wonderful people that serve our village and town without a question which includes volunteers! "If it isn't in Spencerport, its not worth Savoring"!

Spencerport holds great memories for me. I grew up on Lyell rd and Nancy Symes was my best friend. Miss the times with the Webster road gang and the friendships I had forged while growing up. Joined the Navy saw the world which allowed me plenty of time to recall the memories and fun times going to the Carnival, snow mobile riding with the Brongo's and Spencerport at large. Now with Department of Defense working policy issues. Living on fort Bragg base. Gail Bovy (Wilkins) email@example.com
I am helping a cousin of mine in Germany research Wendelin Merk (1829 - 1907) who lived in Spencerport and Rochester. My cousin is related to the Merk family. Information I currently have includes the names of Wendelin's wife and children with some of their dates of birth, marriage, and death. If anyone can lead me to some good information on the Wendelin Merk family, I would be very grateful! Born in Kansas and have lived here all my life. I have never traveled to any of the eastern states but Spencerport sounds like a place that I would love to visit. Julie Caton Spencer firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone know of Ron Waterstrat that ran Georges Dairy? Is he still around? I knew him from Hylan airport. Don McLane B17MAC@AOL.COM
I remember the railroad tracks on Gillett Rd, the sand pits behind Tewksburys house, the ice skating rink across from Pagani's house, Morgans Diary, Rob's Sunoco, Riding dirt bikes and driving lot cars in Al Turners lot, Jim Armstrongs Black Camaro, When Steve Devay rode a Honda Qa 50 in the 100 hall doors and drove it out the 200 hall doors. I remember penny carnivals at the Villards house I worked at Jerry's Arco in the middle of town and watched the parade from there, I remember the VD (Village Diner) that used to be Seals Auto Parts. The boat rides up and down the canal, I remember Wide Waters, the Pizza Pantry, Flashes El Camino. Grew up in Hooterville and not a day goes by that I don't think about my days there."

"I came across your website looking for information on my grandmother's side of the family. I visited my grandmother, Ona Trimmer, several summers in the early 1960s. I have extremely fond memories of the town and the great friendly people that lived there. I had the advantage that at that time, there were still many residents who remembered my father growing up as a local boy and as such made me feel very welcome. Unfortunately, after grandmother past away, I never returned. I am now busily trying to reconstruct my family history so that my children and grandchildren will have it for posterity. I may be returning to Spencerport to finish the project I started almost 50 years ago.”

I was happy to come across this sight while researching an old friend of mine Todd Rickman whom i wish to contact. I graduated in 76 , joined the Marines corps in 78 and moved away I have lived in many wonderful places and towns but none hold near the fond memories of home. I feel very fortunate to have grown up in such a town as Spencerport
During This current recession, i am also fortunate to work for a company that is busy catering to certain needs of our Dept of Defense and Homeland security , But I find there is little time for ones own thoughts during the extreme hectic day's that occur. When it's time to calm down I find Spencerport is always on my mind. The sandpit's near Brower Rd , the powerlines and horse pastures behind the house, Snowmobiling , the guy's on Whittier Rd. The backyard ball games and all the friends. It all comes back to help put things back to perspective and to survive another day. So thank you for this site we can all turn to now for the memories and home contact's.

Wilson HS in 1976. It was and still is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. I chose to stay and raise my family here. My daughter, Anastasia graduated in 2008 and my son is currently in the 9th grade at E.J. Wilson HS. My parents Joe and Murph still live in the large cobblestone house at 4929 Ridge Rd. W.

"After living in Spencerport for nearly 9 years, we moved to Olney, Maryland 8 years ago, in the beginning of 2001. I'm still amazed how much my family and I miss Spencerport! The Christmas lights in Maryland look bare without snow. We miss biking along the canal, strolling through the peaceful neighborhoods, playing in the snow and cross country skiing, all the wonderful parks around Spencerport, the friendly, helpful staff at the Ogden Farmers Library, the small school district, the light traffic, Canal Days, and the picturesque views along the canal. We loved our house, yard and neighborhood on Parkhurst Drive and I hope that all our old friends and acquaintances are well!”

"I grew up in Spencerport on Wittier Road, later on Harwood Road. Graduated from EJ Wilson 1983. I have fond memories of Spencerport, love to visit and still think it is just the greatest little town in the world. I see some of my old classmates in the guest book which brings back fond memories. I can't say enough about Bonnie Seaburn who many of us who attended SCSs know and love. Go Rangers!”

"After so many years, the memories come rushing in when I hear certain songs from the 70s' that remind me of the good ol days in Spencerport. I loved the Firemens Carnivals, where I actually had my first date. lol. I am still seeking anyone that knows the where-abouts of my first love, Carol Flick, from Lyle Rd. I'd love to hear from anyone with information. I sure miss those days. I couldn't have grown up in a better place.”

"I was just doing the modern day version scanning the shortwave radio (surfing the internet) and came across the Spencerport web site. It looks like a great place to live, right there by the famous Erie Canal. I'll bet that Gazebo has seen a lot of fun times. I've sure met a lot of nice folks from New York, both in person and through my net traveling. I'd like to take a drive sometime through your great State, right about this time of year, when the Fall colors are coming out. I'll bet it's fantastic. I enjoyed your web site, thanks for sharing where you call home.”

"I lived in Spencerport for 18 years, right on Spencerport Road, our family was well known in the 80's. We had lots of good times in Spencerport. Our family was best known for bowling , basesball, and well... parties . I now live in Arizona, but give me the days back that I had in Spencerport, Gates, Brockport, Penfield, and Rochester. They were the best!”

"I grew up in Spencerport and graduated in 1977. Over the past (yikes) 30 years, life, loves and jobs took me to Pennsylvania, the Keys and currently Rhode Island. My still-best-friend Kelly Rankin lives in the midwest and we keep in touch via email. I LOVED growing up in Spencerport. We would ride our horses right through the middle of town; it didn't even have a stop light in those days! Anyone remember the annual Halloween Burning of the Outhouse? And the Fireman's Carnival? I lived on Coleman Avenue (#203) and am searching for the surname of the people who lived there before us...." Read more...

We lived there until I was 4, then my Dad (worked for Eastman Kodak for 30+ years) was transferred to New Jersey and then to Houston, TX. My husband and I live in San Antonio, TX now and he has never been to the East Coast. We are going for a visit this summer to explore my roots. I cannot wait to get back to my home!”

My dad, his father and his grandfather grew up in Spencerport too - so we're well-rooted... When I was young I will always remember going to Matthews to get an ice cream with my dad, all the fireman's carnivals, pizza from Pizza Shack, summer parties at Randy Smith's house, Diehls, Pilot House...

"What a nice website. I grew up in Spencerport in the 50’s, very active in all sports and graduated in 1960. I have such fond memories of my school years in Spencerport such as: carnivals in the summer, ice skating in the winter (at the same location next to the canal), walking to Mathew’s ice cream after basketball games, playing basketball across the street in the Holbrook’s driveway on Coolidge Ave., sitting on the Davenport’s front porch on Coleman Ave., and mixing cement and hauling cement blocks for “Curly” Zarnsdorf on summer break. I could go on and on. Anyone else out there share some of these memories? I now live in Tallahassee, Florida with my wife of 42 years and do get back to Spencerport often.”

"My husband (Dave Moore, SHS Class of 1973) and I (Michele [Lamirande] Moore, SHS Class of 1977) both grew up in Spencerport, but no longer live there. We've been in New Port Richey, Florida for over 18 years. I still miss Spencerport every day, most of all the change of seasons, and everything familiar. We have 6 kids (3-his/3-mine...all ours!), and 1 terrific grandson (born April 2006). Dave travels up once every year or 2, but I try to go home at least once a year, sometimes twice. There's no place on earth I'd rather be. As corny as it sounds, there's no place like home. Someday I hope we can become snowbirds so I can at least move home for part of the year. We're both very thankful to have grown up in Spencerport, and we often reminisce about all the great times. I was so sorry to have missed '77s 30th reunion this past fall. I didn't find out about it until it was too late to make arrangements. Maybe next time. Would love to hear from old friends!”

Wilson and graduated in 1976, I did a stint in the military and have been around the world and have lived in different towns and cities but none of them did I call home. Even though I have not been back to the"Port" in a while it still is "home" and the only one I'll know, my parents are buried there along with my sister. I hope to make it back and visit soon.”

"I grew up in Spencerport during the 70's and have very fond memories of the place. Like watching the parade from Kaseman's lawn or riding the bullet or tossing ball number 1 in "I got it!" at the carnival, my kids know the chant of "Plenty of room for I-Got-It players" and they've never been to the Spencerport Carnival. I also remember watching the Red Onion Fireman's Tournament Team, you don't see stuff like that in Connecticut."
"I grew up in Spencerport and graduated in 1977. Moved back to Spencerport 7 years ago. Two of my three children have graduated from Spencerport, my youngest is in high school and a wrestler.

"Hi to all. Spencerport aka Hooterville was a great place to grow up. I graduated from E.J. Wilson H.S. in '73. Lots of fond memories. Anyone from that era, I'd love to hear from you. I live in Morro Bay, Ca. Was there in the winter of '06 - '07. Man was it cold. Nothing like the sandy beach of California. Was good to see Bucky Ades on your site. "Your pool was a blessing Bucky ". Again anyone from that place in time from Spencerport, I would love to hear from you. I lived in the old cobblestone house on West Ridge Rd.

"Most of my mothers family lived in Spencerport from the 1930s through today. I lived on Union street with my Mom and Grandmother, Jesse Cliff for several years during WWll and eventually graduated from SHS in 1958.

"I was born in Spencerport, and lived there from 1961 to about 1971. I remember those days as some of the happiest of my life. Sadly my mom died recently and I was just surfing the net to see what kind of memories your site could provide me. I'm sure not many remember her, but her name was Mary Dishaw and helped spearhead a variety of conservation achievements in your area. Her pride and joy was what I remember as Towpath park down next to the canal, near the bridge. I wonder if it's still there? Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and thank you for childhood memories that I will forever hold dear."

"Just stumbled across this site and think it's fun reading the comments from some names I recognize from my days at SHS. I live nearby now but have traveled extensively and still think Spencerport is about the best place to grow up. I was driving by the old high school a few weeks ago and started thinking about how we used to walk into town after our morning finals, then back to school again to catch the bus home. My mother would have killed me! Hi to all who may see my name.. Lori"

"I have not been home for several years but looking at this web site brings me back to a wonderful time of my life. Never take away the beauty of a small home town. I have lived in many areas and I still have not found a better place to raise a family in or grow up in."

"My parents grew up in the area in the 60's and 70's, then they headed down south. I went to Spencerport a couple of times when I was a kid, but I don't really remember it. Most of my time has been spent either in Orlando, FL or New Orleans, LA. My folks' last names are Strassner and Warburton. I have other family up there, too. I believe that their names are Brongo and Champagne. I don't really know them, though. Write me if you know any of these names. Thanks."

"Salü, I'm just transcribing an old diary from a fellow namend Wendelin Merk who spend some years of his life at Spencerport. That was in the 1850s. So I thought to visit your town's site to find out what this place he wrote about looks now. On Feb 10, 1855, he wrote: "I stayed in the house of John Palmer from Sep 5 until Nov 1, 1854, paying 18 Dollars and 21 Cents. Then I changed to Patrik Meloun from Nov 2, 1854, until Jan 3, 1855, für 19 Dollars." All that time he was working for the Railroad. Tschüs Roland Geiger, St. Wendel, Germany"

"I lived in the big house on West Street that was later the local Funeral home during the late 1930's 1940's. The house was owned by my grandfather, Charles Caprenter, until the crash when financial loss began. We moved from the house when I was 4 years old."

"It was great going through the photo gallery and seeing pictures that my father, R. Milford Spencer had. I left Spencerport in the 1960s, however, the village is very dear to me. I love returning to the area and visiting all the sights that were part of my life. It is a great village and a place to be proud. Would like to hear from anyone that might remember me. Dana"
