Ingrid Petersen Sears Thu May 2 05:01:10 2002
I have been looking for family trivia for a long time. I am hoping that you can help me. I am looking for my grandfather and his side of the family. It is like they never existed.
I know my grandfather Rue C. HOLDRIDGE moved to New York from Pennsylvania. It is said that he was born in 1887 in Pennsylvania. Died in 1957 or 1958 in Afton, New York. I have no knowledge of when he moved to New York. I know he met and married my GrandMother Maisie Belle MURDOCK. They had a farm in Afton, New York. My Grandpa had a milk route. They had 4 daughters of natural decent, and 2 sons ( twins ) adopted from their child Elizabeth.
1. Marguerite HOLDRIDGE
3. Elizabeth ( Betty ) May HOLDRIDGE b: December 17, 1919 d: January 19, 1991 ( my mom )
5. Everett HOLDRIDGE ( adopted )
6. Ernest D. HOLDRIDGE ( adopted )

The problem I am having is with the spelling of the last name. HOLDRIDGE has several ways of being spelled. I know three ways are on my moms birth certificate. Family name is listed as HOLDREGE as is grandpa's name. Then they have my grandma's name spelled HOLDRIDGE, my mom's is spelled HOLDREDGE. Each one of the twins has a different spelling for his last name as well. This is getting really complex to build my family tree.
It is as bad as the PETERSEN branch from my dad's side of the family. So far it is spelled PETERSEN / PETERSON / PEDERSEN / PIETERSEN / PEDERSON.

I have traced the MURDOCK ( Grandma's } side for quite a ways. The 1700's.
Here's hoping that you can help me find my grandpa.


Lynn KImble Thu May 2 20:18:11 2002

Tammie Collins Tue May 7 19:23:29 2002
Searching for information on the parents of George B FOOTE (1815-1895) & May Sophia WELD (?-1881), married 2/6/1833 in or near Coventry, NY. They had the following children:
May (1840-1813) who married Nelson COHOON (1835-1919)
LeRoy (1842-?)
Amelia (1845-1932) who married Adelbert BARTON (1845-1947)
Monroe (1847-?)
Appollos (1854-?) who married Ada ? (1850-1901)
Florence (1857-?)
Lillian (1860-?)
Adelbert & Amelia (FOOTE) BARTON were my great-great grandparents
Much of this information was passed on to me by my grandmother, Bernice Amelia BARTON - I verified some of the dates when I visited the Chapel Cemetery in Coventry.
May's father may have been Capt Calvin WELD (1788-1844) as his headstone was close to May's and the dates would work. There was no stone for a wife for Calvin. Also curious - what was he a captain of??? Stone just says "Capt Calvin WELD" with the dates.
FYI - an earlier query I posted listed May's last name as WELCH - I have since verified that it is indeed WELD, not WELCH. Any help out there????

Susan Clark Wed May 15 06:18:15 2002
I'm looking for information about the family of Russell and Mary (DEWEY) CLARK, who lived in Chenango in the early 1800s. Their children might include Alfred, James Madison, Clarissa, George C., Windsor Otis, and Aaron Dewey. Aaron was probably the namesake of Aaron DEWEY, Mary's father. An Aaron DEWEY who lived in Smithville at the time of the 1830 census was most likely Mary's father or brother. The DEWEYs and the CLARKs probably both moved to Chenango from Connecticut. Any information confirming the relationships between these people would be greatly appreciated. Russell was born in Connecticut, and he moved his family to Ashtabula County, Ohio, probably about 1830. Also seeking leads on Windsor CLARK, possible son or nephew of Russell, who also moved to Ashtabula.

John A. Aiello Fri Jun 7 21:14:58 2002
After years of searching for James FULLER, I have finally found him in your beautiful County ... James FULLER was born in Otsego Co, NY circa 1828, the son of Daniel Webster FULLER, Sr. and Sarah A. UTTER. He was the third of ten children. He married Esther A. WILDEY (27 Nov 1828 - 16 May 1870) on 1 Sep 1848 in Bainbridge, Chenango Co, NY. Esther was the daughter of Stephen WILDEY (14 Aug 1805 - Sep 1890) and Helen LUM (23 Nov 1806 - 26 Jul 1872) and was I believe the eldest of six children, and to the best of my knowledge the only one to marry. James FULLER died on 03 Feb 1895 in Masonville, Delware Co, NY and was buried in the WILDEY Family plot in Bennettsville Cemetery, Bennettsville, Chenango Co, NY. I have discovered most of this information from your County's Website after I discovered that James had died in Masonville and was buried in Bennettsville. I do not know if James FULLER & Esther WILDEY ever had any children. Now that I know where to look I'll check the 1850, 1860, and 1870 Census'. I have a bit of a puzzle though. The New Berlin Church records Esther Fuller as dying on 05 Jan 1871. Could be a different Esther Fuller, but the age is the same. Anyway, any help with these families would be a great help. Thanks.

Floyd was a sheet metal worker & a plumber. He was married to Florence. I do not have her maiden name, but know that she was born, 1-7-1898, Evansville, IN. She died 1985 - 67 yrs in the coming Jan. Floyd and Florence had three children: Eileen, Genevieve (both deceased) and a brother still living. They lived in the Binghamton, NY area.

He married Sally MOORIS and they lived in Fishkilll, Dutchess co . and Oxford (and possibly Guilford) Chenango CO. NY. He had Amariah b. 1782, Abel b. 1785, Sarah or Sally b. 8/19/1787, Joseph b. 1789, Joseph b. 1790, Clarissa b. 1792, Elistha, b. 1793, Harvey b. 1794 and Eveline b. 1796. He was on the Oxford CO. census 1800 with 9 children. What I am trying to find is another daughter Chloe COBURN. Chloe was b. 7/16/1796 in Guilford Chenango CO. We believe her father to be this Nathaniel. Her father was a Rev. War fifer. He was in the right place to be her father. However he has a daughter Eveline b. 1796. Could this be Chloe (middle name??)? Could they be twins? If anyone has any ideas or leads I would greatly apprectiate it. I am guessing they were Congregationalists as Nathaniel was baptized such.!
Does anyone know of any old Congregational churches in Guilford???
Many thanks for reading this! Diane

I am trying to locate information on my gggrandfather Lyman B. COLE and his family. His obituary says that he was born in Gilbertsville, N.Y. on 9-22-1819 and died 5-13-1897 in Susq. Co., Pa. His obituary also says that he was bound out to a Deacon LULL when he (Lyman) was 8 years old. Lyman married his wife Jerusha HARDING in Guilford, N.Y. on 9/22/1842. They moved to Bridgewater Twp, Susq. Co., Pa. in 1837. I am interested in coming to Norwich to see if I can find any information on Lyman B. COLE. Do they have tax, birth, death, and suroget records there at the court house or Hist. Dept?
Thank you for any help you can give me. I'd like to come to Norwich the week of July 16.
Thank you!! Brenda
