For several years now I have been trying to find the parents of Peter STUART
/ STEWART. Peter(my grandfather)was born in Prattsville/Cattskill, NY Aug.
14,1844.Apparently something happened to the parents and it appears that
he grew up in Beech Pond (now Beach Lake),PA. He served briefly in the Civil
War and returned to Beech Pond, married Angenette Montgomery and raised first
family. Moved to Scranton, PA early 1800's. Angenette passed away in 1892
and Peter found his way to upstate NY around 1895. In 1904 he married my
grandmother , Cora Vangelder, and raised 2nd family in Bath, NY. Some records
are under the surname STEWART and others under STUART. Found a Mary (Steward)
Holbert listed as Carrie McKee's mother in Syracuse, NY who may have been
Peter's sister. Also a Samuel Stuart is listed as father of Eldine Burns,
mother of Guy Burns, Guy now lives in Canandagua, NY. There are connections

I am seeking information on the John ROGERS family from Greenwood, Steuben,
NY I am a descendent of Abraham WILLIAMSON of Greenwood. Abraham's son Chester
b Nov 6, 1823(25) m Electa ???? (possibly a ROGERS) and they moved to Bureau
Co., IL before 1860. I am led to believe that Electa was a ROGERS by the
following: Bureau Co., IL land records Book 98 page 179 filed Nov. 24, 1888
at 7:00A.M. shows that the children and heirs at law of John ROGERS to wit:
Nelson ROGERS and wife Catherin, John ROGERS and wife Lodina, Jackson ROGERS
and wife Elizabeth, Freeman ROGERS and wife Charity all of Steuben Co., NY,
Bilsy (Knox???) a widow, Caroline GREEN and husband Pardon, Catharine PERKINS
and her husband Alexander all of Alleghany Co., NY sold to Chester and Electa
WILLIAMSON for the sum of $1.00 and other good and valuable considerations
a 40 acre lot in Bureau Co., IL. Chester and Electa had purchased
8 acres in 1885 for $100.00. Apparently the price of the land indicates that
somehow either Electa or Chester were related to the ROGERS family. Chester
and Electa named children Pardon and Seymour. I find the name Seymor ROGERS
in the census records (WFT FTM 1850). Also, according to the census records
of Family Tree Maker WFT census bundle, the WILLIAMSON and ROGERS families
were living close together in Greenwood. In fact the 1850 census has some
of the WILLIAMSON children listed on the same page as the ROGERS family.
Abraham WILLIAMSON had a daughter named Charity. Is this the Charity, wife
of Freeman ROGERS? If you have any genealogical or biological information
on these people, please e-mail or snail mail me.

SPIKE I am searching for information on the SPIKE family of VT and
NY. My earliest known ancestor in this line is Daniel SPIKE, a Rev War soldier
born ca. 1759. He was living in Stillwater (now Saratoga Co., NY) when he
enlisted in the Rev War at Albany, NY, in 1776. After the war, he married
Rosanna Fuller. Their first child, Margaret SPIKE, was born 16 March 1789
in Saratoga Co., NY. Other children were: Thankful, Daniel, Josiah, Marcy,
Catherine, Lucy, and Sally. The family removed to Cohocton, Steuben Co.,
NY, before 1820. Daniel and Rosanna died at Cohocton in 1845 and 1844,
respectively. There is an earlier PIKE family in Mass. that is sometimes
recorded as SPIKE. Is there a connection with my Daniel? Will exchange all
SPIKE family information. Ted Steele

ROACH I am trying to find the parents names of Chester ROACH, born
April 1833 in Bath, Steuben county. He was first discovered on the 1850 census
in Bath living with the Archibald GATES family. Chester was 16 years old
at the time. His occupation was listed as "farmer". In 1855 he was again
found in Bath living with the Lawrence CHURCH family.His occupation was listed
at Tinner. I have been unable to find any information on his parents in the
county records. Since Chester was just 16 in 1850 and living with another
family, I thought possibly his parents had died and left him orphaned. It
was not uncommon for boys younger than that to leave home and go to work
for other families, but I had hoped there would be something on his parents
in the census, or if they had died, in the probate records etc. I have written
Steuben County many times and they find nothing. Will appreciate any clues.
