Manion , Hust (Houst), and Walker
Terry Espinosa
I have purchased an old farm house in Ferndale....the farm dates back to 1864 from what I have found in County records...owned by John Manion, succeeded by John J and then John F. Manion, who sold the property to Fred M. Hust or Houst in 1902. Mr. Hust then sold to Edward and Marie Walker in 1905. The Walkers built the house I am living in. I want to find any history I can find on the house and the farm. It looks like it was quite a large farm at the turn of the century. It is located a short distance from Inn by the Falls. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

He eventually moved to Yates Co. where he trained and practiced as an attorney. His wife was Maria(h) Little, dau. of Francis Little and Catherine Winfield, both families from Ulster Co. A possible clue to James' relationship to other Seelys is that he named a son Valencourt. There is another Valencourt (b.abt 1808) in the Sullivan Co census for Lumberland in 1840 - 1870's. Is he a brother of James Jr? Any info on Seely, Bailey, Little, or Winfield appreciated.

OK So Sullivan County's Court house burnt down in 1908... What do I do now... Jeremiah Lillie lived and died there... but I have hardly any information about him. Did any of the records survive? If so where should I look. Jeremiah Sr. died in Lumberland around 1818, is there a newspaper I can look in? Church records to check? Anyone out there that knows the Lillie family? My Aunt attempted a search years ago, and gave up... Any suggestions?

LILLIE
Iris Fields
Since the courthouse in Sullivan County was lost to fire in 1908, I was wonder what are the alternatives to that lost resource? My Jeremiah Lillie just *appeared* in the mid to late 1700's in Sullivan Co. Would it be worth my while to check Ulster County for any Lillie records? Did all the records of the area stay in Sullivan and there is no chance that any of the area records were recorded and kept in Ulster before Sullivan formed?
