Ruth Jordan Thoden My ggg-grandfather,
John JORDAN born March 9, 1764 (don't know where); married probably in Orange
Co., NY 1785 to Julia SWARTOUT who was born 1769 d/o Jacobus SWARTOUT. Jacobus
was living in 1785 in Sugar Loaf, town of Warwick, Orange Co., NY and assume
his 16-year-old daughter, Julia, was living with him at the time of her wedding.
John JORDAN does NOT appear in the 1790 census of NYS as 1-2-1...as he would
having had two males born to Julia by census time 1790. By 1800, John/Julia
and family residing in Cherry Valley, Otsego Co., NY beside her father, Jacobus,
and her brother, Moses...She died between 1807 and 1810. An unnamed male
child born to her in 1807 and she does not appear in the 1810 census with
John. John continued to reside in Cherry Valley until about 1848 when he
it was thought he joined three of his sons in the town of Wirt, Allegany
Co., NY but having recently found his will probate in Cooperstown, county
seat, Otsego Co,learned he died town of Pike, Wyoming County, NY which is
where one of his three daughters had settled. He died 1/26/1850 and is buried
on lot of my gg-grandfather, Jacob JORDAN, in Mount Hope Cemetery, Friendship,
Allegany Co., NY (town in which I was born and brought up) Issue of this
marriage: MICHAEL who stated in 1855 census for Steuben Co., NY that he had
been born in Orange Co., NY. WILLIAM who settled Steuben Co. JESSE who settled
Steuben Co. All of these three died in Steuben County, NY. BETSEY - married
Sebastion WELLER and lived in Canajoharie, Montgomery Co, NY ISAIAH - migrated
from Otsego to Steuben Co. as young lad with his brother, Michael and lived
with Michael until he married Polly Dakin, d/o Elisha...so after marriage,
Elisha Dakin and Isaiah with bride migrated to town of Wirt, Allegany Co.,
NY and bought virgin land there. JOHN and JAMES both settled in early 1820's
in Cuba, Allegany Co., NY. JULIA MARGARET - married Charles Phelps and settled
Pike, Wyoming Co., NY ANDREW - migrated from Otsego Co. to Allegany Co. buying
land adjacent to his brother,Isaiah in town of Wirt.JACOB - my gg-grandfather
also migrated from Otsego Co. to Allegany Co. buying land adjacent to that
of Isaiah. SALLY - married John Dygert and lived Canajoharie, Montgomery
Co, NY UNNAMED SON - probably died at birth...Tradition among family members
is that the JORDAN clan came from Ireland, but I've no proof one way or another.
I've analyzed ALL Jordans who lived in Orange County, NY before, during and
after Revolution and find no connection with my John JORDAN. Julia, wife
of John,had two brothers,Aaron and Moses SWARTOUT who married at the Presbyterian
Church, Goshen, Orange Co., NY but no record of John Jordan or Julia Swartout
being baptized, married or ever attending this church. I've pretty much ruled
out the possibility of my John JORDAN being a YORDON (Palatine family who
came to Mohawk Valley between 1709-1711)..I've not ruled out possibility
that my John JORDAN may have been product of a JORDAN family who were Tories
and fled to Canada he returning after the Revolution.There was such a family
in Westchester Co., NY - John JORDAN born Scotland in 1729 descendants....but
my John not part of this family.

Sherry Morell Shelts Lyman MORELL
was born in NY, in 1799. Married Caroline Gardner, and their son Alvah June
was born there 05 July 1827. All three baptized by Rev Wm Flagler, when the
Presbyterian Church in WOODHULL was formed 15 Oct 1831. They appear in the
1830 Steuben Co (Woodhull) NY Census. Lyman and Caroline Morell/Morelle had
moved to Michigan by the 1840 Census. Caroline had died, and Lyman remarried.
He and his new wife joined a wagon train going West in the early 1840's,
he apparently died on the trip, as his teen aged son, who had been left in
Michigan with a couple named "Vandewater", never heard from him again. I
recently did the entire Steuben Co 1830 census, and found several names that
were similar. I grew up being told that at one point, our name had been spelled
MORELLE, that there NEVER were 2-R's, but several that I just found there,
had 2-R's! We never have known who Caroline's parents were either. Also found
a Gardner who joined the same church, a year after Lyman and Caroline. We
have had Morell Reunion's here in Mich, for over 60 years, and no one has
ever been able to find who Lyman Morell and Caroline Gardner's parent's are.
I have taken on the job, and have told them that when I arrive with bell's
on, they will know I have found Lyman's parent's. I believe with all my heart,
one of these new subject's I have found, is my link to Lyman and Caroline's
family's! For the first time in the 6 years since my grandparent's died,
I have hope's of finding his Morell?Morelle line!

Also, he was City Gardener when Dennison Park was built - looking for any
information on his position, when he was hired and how long he was on job.
Occupation was always stated on family records as a glassblower at CGW. Was
City Gardener an occupation or just an avocation? Also, looking for church
affiliations for both.
I've hit the brick wall on this one: William Emmett JOHNSTON's brother,
Charles H. JOHNSTON, son of Henry R. Johnstone and Celestra Lauter. ** Unsure
of DOB or where, but assumption is 1868-1877. Last listing in Corning-Painted
Post city directory was 1941. Residence was 411 E. Third St. and occupation
was listed as "retired". Before retirement, according to the city directory,
he was listed as a meat handler/teamster. Wife's name listed as "Ethel".
** data added 3/28/02 - Originally I
had the name of Celestra LAUTER for William Emmett Johns(t)on's mother; that
is the name in the family Bible and the name given on her marriage record.
BUT, it is written as Celestia LOBDELL on her husband's pension records.

if Thompson were a clue to his mother's name. The father remarried in 1838
and moved to Michigan. William Fowler Hart, Jr. was raised in Hartsville

Tom McCarthy Researching
Daniel McCARTHY [c.1840 - 10/9/1913] & John P. MCCARTHY [1872 - 1922].
My ggfather Daniel was born to Thomas? McCarthy and a woman with surname
McNael?. Birthplace of Daniel unknown but possibly Canada. Had a brother
Timothy, and a sister Margaret who married a Timothy Donovan. Daniel married

Ann's Cemetery in Hornell,NY. At one time they lived in Cuba, NY where my

in Almond, NY. My gfather John m. Mary Ann Hennessy [5/1872 - 1928]. They

John W Vail HUNT Looking for
information on ancestors and descendants of May Francis HUNT (born 26 July
1866) in Addison, Steuben Co., NY. She had one sister Lulu and four brothers,
names unknown. According to the Census of 1910, her parents were also born
in NY.She married John William Dunlap (b10 Aug 1861) in about 1884, when
May Francis was about 18 years old. She and J.W. Dunlap had 12 children,
one of whom, Gladys May Dunlap is my grandmother. The children were almost
all born in Peabody, Kansas, so the entire Hunt family likely moved there
by the time they were married. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Randy Caccia Looking for any information
on the surname INSCHO. The Inscho family migrated from Tioga County Pa into
surrounding counties (Chemung, Bradford, Steuben..) and I am researching
HERSHBERG, ROWLEY, MOORE. Am researching my paternal g-grandparent's side:
HERSHBERG, ROWLEY, MOORE. I have wedding certificates for Henry HERSHBERG
who married Helen ROWLEY, 3/21/1868 in what was then Hornellsville, NY and
Frances A. HERSHBERG, who married Charles H. MOORE, 11/14/1896 in Hornellsville.
I am told that the former Miss Rowley's family dates back to the American
Revolution, and that Mr. Hershberg or one of his ancestors was the Mayor
of Moscow. I have no information on Mr. Moore. Information on any of the
above would be tremendously appreciated.

JESMORE/JESSMORE/JESMER My gggrandmother, Mary Jane Jesmore, was born somewhere
in New York in 1839. Her obituary states that she was born in Morley, Steuben
County, New York. Since obituaries are notoriously inaccurate and I can't
find a Morley in Steuben County, I had pretty well decided that she was born
in Morley, St Lawrence County. Yesterday I received a copy of her younger
brother's obituary and it says he too was born in Steuben County, New York.
I can find Jesmores in St Lawrence County but no records of Jesmores in Steuben
County (although admittedly I haven't looked real hard) Mary Jane's husband
(married in Iowa) Monroe Sellen and his family were well documented to have
been from Steuben County. I would like to share information with anyone
interested in these surnames. I would really like to clear up the question
of where Mary Jane and Edward came from.
