Looking for any information on William CONKLIN and Elizabeth BRINK. William 'of Cochection' in 1774 married Elizabeth BRINK of 'Minisink'. They lived near 'Big Island' which I believe to be near Minisink. I am trying to find out if they are the parents of my Mary Conklin who married John BUTLER. In the 1850 Census for Sussex Co., NJ, Mary indicates she was born in Orange Co., NY. Cochecton (now in Sullivan) and Minisink were both in Orange Co. at that time. I am fairly certain that John BUTLER and Mary CONKLIN named there first Asa after John's father. Their second son was named William C., the C. most likely standing for CONKLIN. I know that William and Elizabeth went on to have eleven children. Does anyone know the names of those children? Have some Conklin information I would be willing to exchange. One of their daughters married Jesse Tyler. Elizabeth died in 1842.
