I am looking for the burial site for my great-great-great-great-great-grandfather Bell YORK, III. He was born October 11, 1771, son of Bell YORK Jr and Anna BROWN. His wife was Polly PURCHASE.

CARR - Barn Castle

Pete Pierce Fri Feb 9 09:38:15 2007
HI Robert,
I saw your two queries, one about Barn Castle, and the other about the 1850 census in Madison.

I have several mapping sources, but was unable to find any place in Madison County that had "Barn" as part of the start of the name.

Re: Thomas CARR in the 1850 Madison Co., NY, census - There are 33 Robert CARR's in's index for NY in 1850, and 3 Robert CAR's (one R). If you can give me some approximate ages of your folk, I will try to sort which of them might be your person. I need something that will suggest a birth date to narrow the search. If you want to look at those results on your own, every branch library in Dallas County has free access to Ancestry, and it's free.

Email me privately, if you'd like or, if you want to talk to me, I live in Arlington, TX.

Robert Warren Tue Feb 13 19:59:44 2007
Harrison WARREN born abt 1798, married Charlotte FOSDICK in Cazenovia N.Y. abt 1821. They had a child Harrison L. WARREN in 1822 and in 1824 Charlotte married Joseph BaBCOCK. We have no idea what happened to the elder Harrison WARREN. James LLOYD, who was involved with construction on the Erie Canal, is the father-in-law of the younger Harrison L. WARREN. He married Martha LLOYD in 1846 later in Illinois. Perhaps the elder Harrison worked with Mr. LLOYD and was killed working on the canal. All help wanted.

Descendants of (Dr.) Hugh and Abiah (REED) CUNINGHAM, their son Lorenzo Sidney CUNINGHAM (and his wife Sarah (REED) CUNINGHAM): I have found documentation: Hugh's birth record 13 Jul 1780, Town of Rutland, MA; Hugh and Abiah's marriage record 29 Sep 1806, Town of Shutesbury, MA, Lorenzo's birth record, MA 5 Aug 1808, Town of Shutesbury, MA and Lorenzo's death record, Onondaga Co. (Syracuse, NY) Vital Statistics, 4 Dec 1888.

Also have some documentation on Hugh's parents, John (Lt/Capt) CUNINGHAM and his wife, Priscilla TABER: a statement of their marriage (4 Jun 1773) from Town of Rutland, MA. They were married in Tiverton, RI according to the statement (on town clerk letterhead), but Tiverton has no record, you are welcome to visit (call ahead) to view town records yourself (or hire a genealogist to research for you). John was a Patriot, he was a private soldier with Captain Thomas Eustis' Rutland Company of Minute Men who marked on the alarm of the Battle of Lexington, 19 Apr 1775. Helen (CUNNINGHAM) BENSON was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and I am too, documented back to Capt. John CUNINGHAM. Good luck!

Their oldest daughter Martha married George WARREN. William CARR the youngest son, stayed on the farm long after his parents had passed. His oldest daughter married Richard HAGGERTY.

Looking for information on my GGG grandparents Evan and Elizabeth DAVIS, born in Wales, came to town of Eaton in mid 1840's.Their oldest child, David N. (my GG grandfather) was born in Eaton in Nov. 1847. David's death cert lists his parents as "Ephram and Elizabeth" but I continually find them in the census listing him as "Evan" or even "Evian" so I'm not sure which was right.

Both Evan and David were blacksmiths as well as a younger son, William. There was also, I believe, a son Griffith.
In 1870 after David married, he is living in Nelson and Evan and Elizabeth are living in Cazenovia and that's the last place I find them. I believe they both may have died before 1880 census.
I have no info on when they died or where they might be buried. Have found possible later census for the other children but am not sure.
David married Eliza Jane BENTLEY who was from Constantia (Canastota?) at the time of their marriage and they moved to Syracuse in about 1878 and David had a blacksmith shop on the Erie Canal at N. West St. They had five children, two lived to adulthood and David died in 1902 and Eliza in 1910.
Any information would be appreciated. I live in Syracuse.

Seeking dates of death, copies of obits or any other details on any of the following WEAVER relatives living in Lenox in 1900 & 1910:

Frank A. WEAVER, b. 1860
Jerusha M. (HURLBURT / HURLBUT) WEAVER), b. 1856
John H. WEAVER, b. 1877
Amy or Emma HURLBUT, b. 1865

John WEAVER, Sr., b. abt 1827, had apparently died by 1900. Frank is John's son by 1st (or 2nd) wife.
Harriet is John's 2nd (or 3rd) wife. Maiden name WELLINGTON, first married to Amos HURLBURT.
Jerusha is Harriet and Amos' daughter, and Frank's wife.
John H. is son of John Sr. and Harriet.
Amy / Emma is Harriet and Amos' daughter.

1900 & 1910 Census put this family, minus John Sr., in Lenox, together in one household. They were living in Otsego Co in 1880.

By 1920, still in Lenox, the household is reduced to:

Frank, 59, wife Jerusha, 62, and 1/2 brother (to both Frank and Jerusha), John H., 42.

In 1930, only "Rusha" 73, and half-brother John H., 52, remain.

I am looking for information about the families of Francis TRUAX and his second wife, Laura (BENNETT) CLEMENCE. Laura's first husband was Henry CLEMENCE, he died in a boiler explosion on the Erie Canal in July 1857, they had one son, Henry A CLEMENCE. Mary HOUSE was the first wife of Francis TRUAX, they had three living daughters, Ada, Kate, and Lillias; Mary died in September 1863. Laura's mother was a daughter of Updike PULLMAN of Herkimer County, nothing is known of her father other than his surname was BENNETT. Henrick (Henry) TRUAX and Louise Maria HOGLE were parents of Francis. Francis and Laura left Madison / Oneida counties for Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin immediately after their marriage in the spring of 1868. Lenox Township, Vernon, and Durhamville are mentioned.

Hi-- We're very interested in tracking down the parents of Moses D. WELCH (b. 2/27/1812 Brookfield(?), Madison Co.; d. 1/22/1889 Geneva, Van Buren Co., MI). I suspect he may be a son of one of the Brookfield WELCHes: Charles, Amos, Job, or Nathan (there may be other possibilities). I notice that Amos WELCH has a son listed on charts as "Mos".

All these WELCHes show sons in the correct age range on the 1820 Census for Brookfield, Madison Co. to be possible fathers of Moses.

Moses D. WELCH in the 1880 Census describes his father's birthplace as Rhode Island. I've noticed my suspected WELCHes birthplaces (children of Charles & Mary TaYLOR) listed as Rhode Island on and also as Connecticut on other people's records. Anyone have any insight or clarification?

We'd really appreciate any information you might have that could be related.
Thanks! Vic

Linda Bryan Wed Mar 19 07:05:02 2008
Am seeking information about Jedediah D. STEVENS and his sister Sabrina STEVENS. He was from Peterboro so I suspect that she was as well. He was born in 1800 at Hamilton, NY. I have no birth or age info about Sabrina. Both were missionaries in the Great Lakes region for the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM).

In early 1820s she was at a Presbyterian mission on the Maumee in Ohio. Then she changed gears and worked at ABCFM's multi-tribe Mackinaw Mission 1828-1830s. Then went into interior and was at two ABCFM Ojibwe missions-- La Pointe and Pokegama Mission until 1846 dismission from Board. I do not believe that she ever married.

J. D. STEVENS is well documented in 1828 to 1839 period in Minn. Hist. Soc. collection. He scouted Ojibwe areas for potential mission sites, worked at Mackinac and Green Bay areas, then created great turmoil in Dakota missions of ABCFM until dismission 1839.

I am especially curious as to why the Board tolerated J. D. STEVENS. Could there be a rich and/or influential backer behind him? Such as Geritt SMITH?

Other Mackinaw Mission names from nearby communities: Frederic Ayer (Augusta, Utica, more) and Chauncy Hall (Augusta). I know that Ayer was involved with regional dev. of Sunday School, an org. for recruiting missionaries for ordination, and the Hastings and Tracy religious publishing house at Utica.


Thomas Welch Thu Mar 20 15:16:38 2008
I am looking for information on a Hannah POTTER, daughter of Jason POTTER. Jason POTTER was the son of Sampson POTTER and had sisters Sally, Katura and Amy. Hannah was born in 1829 in Madison County, New York. Sampson had land on the Brothertown Reservation which was sold about 1832 for the benefit of his heirs. I need any information that would show that Hannah was the daughter of Jason and Carloine (CARLIN) COOK. They went to Wisconsin about 1832-1844. We are also looking for a connection between Hannay and a Mary Ann POTTER. Hannah and Mary Ann may be one and the same? Hannah married a Thomas Welch after 1850.

I am wondering why the children of Thomas and Lydia (BROWNELL) BROWN were list as being born in Little Compton, when shortly after their marriage in 1809 they moved to Madison, Madison County, NY.

Fourth was Deborah who died young (no record in Madison of her death). Lydia was born in 1816. Joseph was born in 1819. Ruth was born in 1821. James (my gg grandfather) was born in 1824. Mary was born in 1827. All were born in Madison, Madison, NY.
Lydia BROWNELL died about 1833 but no death record for her. Thomas remarried Cynthia PECKHAM daughter of Isaac PECKHAM and Patience LAWTON. Shortly thereafter they moved to Portage Co, Oh and settled in Geauga Co, OH. Any help on the deaths and places of burial of Lydia and Deborah would be appreciated. Also why were the place of birth of their children listed as Little Compton? Thanks Dennis

Hello, I am looking for any historical information you might have on these lines. My Great Great Great Grandfather, Samuel Hezekiah LUTHER and his wife Robia (SEAMANS) LUTHER, moved to the Cazenovia / Lebanon / Georgetown / Eaton communities about 1805 or so. My Greatx3 grandfather Samuel H LUTHER, is supposedly buried in Eaton, but had died in Georgetown. I have not been able to locate him in any of the community cemeteries using "" and have only found them on the census pages. Robia SEAMANS parents, John and Sarah moved to Madison county about the same time, and lived in Eaton. I can find no record of them, and nothing in the cemeteries.
