I am looking for the parents of William (1815), Stephen, and Daniel L Lybolt(1818). I have some evidence to suggest Calvin Lybolt (1817) might also be a brother. In the 1810 Census for Mamakating there were two Laybolt's listed. I double checked to make sure it was L and not an S. Martin Laybolt had 2 males under age 10, one male 26-45, one female under 10, one female 10-16 and one female 26-45. JOhn Laybolt had 3 males under age 10, one male 10-16, one male 16-26, one male 45+, one female under age 10, one female 16-26, and one female 26-45. I was wondering if anyone had information on these Laybolts and could the Lybolt brothers I have listed be younger children of one of these two?

I tried to reply to a post about EDWARDS by Pat Berry, but she has changed e-mail addresses. I would love to exchange info with her or anyone re: Clara or E. Claretta (depending on source) Edwards b. 1866 d. 1889. She married Henry Smith Benedict, who is my great-grandfather with his second wife, Nellie Branning. Henry is buried, according to all documentation (death cert, newspaper obit), in Kenoza Lake with wife number one Clara. But I can't find a gravesite or burial record anywhere. Even bribing cemetery workers has gotten me nowhere. I have a cousin who remembers that the cemetery is near a hazelnut grove, but that tidbit hasn't helped either. As near as I can figure out, Clara's parents were Thomas Edwards 1844-1920 and Jane Gorton 1849-1934. Thomas' parents were Dudley Edwards 1814-1892 and Ruth Gilbert 1814-1894.
