Boyd Bingham
I am looking for any information about my great-great grandfather Samuel Butler born in Steuben County in 1806. We have no concrete evidence of his parents identity although it is probable that he was at least raised by Joseph Butler and Mary Jeffers. Perhaps they were his parents or they could have raised him. He married Samantha Hicks (not absolutely sure that was her last name) in about 1823. She died a year or so later shortly after a son Stephen was born. Any birth information or marriage information about Samuel or Samantha would be extremely helpful. Also we think he was a Methodist preacher......Thank you

Family oral history has Arthur Howard BEERS born in "Orange County," but we now suspect the town of Orange in what was Steuben, is now Schuyler Co. AHB was born in 1849, the son of Margaret Mary BALDWIN and [possibly Richard?] Beers. More family folklore that Baldwins were related to DEMARESTs.
Found AHB and his family in Yates County in 1900 but nothing relevant in 1860 or 1870 Schuyler Co. census. Pre-1854 Steuben County is now our best hope for solving this puzzle. Jo Ann Kaufman

I am interested on where I can find records on some ancestors who "passed through" Cohocton in the late 1880s. My g-grandfather, John Christian DORRENBACHER, and his wife Anna Mary (sometimes Mary Ann), came to the U.S. in 1880 from Germany. I know that he was born in St. Wendel in 1853. Her maiden name was SCHAAD or SCHADT or SCHODT(various spellings!). I believe they married before they came to the U.S. (If not, they married shortly after he arrived in the U.S.) They settled in Cohocton, where I believe they became U.S. citizens. Where would I get naturalization records for Steuben County?  They had at least three children born there: Mary Ann in 1882, Andrew L. in 1885, and Theresa in 1887. There were several other children: J. J., Frank, Cecelia and Nicholas. I believe they may have been born in Cohocton. (Catherine and Margaret, the two youngest, were born in Indiana and Georgia, respectively.) The family left the Cohocton area around 1900. Where could I obtain birth records for this period of time?
