|This is the web site of the
family of Dexter, New York. Many years ago, we decided
that we wanted to organize the photographs we had taken
over the years as a record of our family and our life.
Since we never got around to doing that, this web site is
our "on-line scrapbook."
We were married in 1978. One week after our wedding,
we moved into a home on the Talcville
Road in Edwards. It had been Marcia's grandparents'
home for almost 30 years and we ended up raising our family
and living there for over 34-1/2 years. We sold the
house in October 2015 after 37 years, nine months and five
days of ownership/occupancy.
David taught high
school math at the
Central School for 33 years, starting at Edwards in
1973 and retiring in 2006.
Marcia was a remedial
reading and math teacher at
Central's East Side Elementary School from 1982 until
her retirement in 2012.
In 2004 we bought a property on the North Shore Road
of Pillar Point, in the town of Brownville, that has been
in David's family since 1939. His grandfather Schryver
built the cabin there that came to be known to the family
as the cottage. Over the next
seven years, we did considerable renovations in anticipation
of building on and making it our year-round home.
That happened in 2012.
In March 2016, after renting for two winters and part
of another, we bought a winter home
in Florida. Located in Tippecanoe Village in Zephyrhills,
we are now snowbirds, spending the winter in a 55+ community.
|During our married life, we have enjoyed
camping, our motorcycles
and ham radio.
Some of our current diversions include
and waterfalls. In addition,
Marcia relaxes by reading and gardening and has recently
gotten into quilting. David enjoys
genealogy, unwinds by playing guitar
in a jam group every week.
|In 2006, David started getting interested in hiking
into waterfalls. That has become a regular activity
with us and it led to the creation of something that has
become quite popular, the website
Through a number of fortunate occurrences, in the fall of
2010, David began a collaboration with two other men who
also run waterfall websites. The book Waterfalls of
New York State came from these efforts. It was published
in August 2012 and is now available through several sources,
on that website.
|The Schryver Family
|Our branch of the Schryver family descended from Albartus
and Eva Lauermann Schryver.
originally spelled the name Schreiber, but changed it after
they came to America in 1709. As the family tree has
branched over the past three centuries, some family members
have changed the name and we have found other spellings
such as Schriver, Schriber, Scriver, Scriber and Shriver.
A major focus of this web site is dedicated to the family
genealogy. This is and probably will be a work in
progress for some time. If you are a Schryver or a
descendent of the Schryver family in any of its spelling
variations, you might be interested in checking out our
Likewise, if you have information to share on the "family",
we would be more than interested in including it here.
|Fourth Coast Creations
|On the side during his teaching career, David did a
lot of computer consulting and in-service training.
He has also designed and maintained web sites for communities,
organizations and businesses for many years. He now
conducts a formal website design, development and maintenance
business under the name
Fourth Coast Creations.
