DAVIS, WALKER
Mike Todt
My Sullivan County ancestors were Irish, Margaret Hensey arrived in 1815, I'm not sure if she was married, her husband was Gelton Davis. Their daughter, Elizabeth, was born in Sullivan Co. in 1832. I have found no record of Gelton, Margaret was listed as head of household in the 1840 census. Elizabeth Davis married Thomas Walker, who came from Ireland in 1849. They had several children. Is anyone else familiar with these individuals. Thanks, Mike

My g grandparents are listed in the 1850 Wayne County, PA census as Robberd, Moses, age 36, born in NY; his wife, Rachael Robberd, age 23, born in NY; Richard Robberd, age 1, born in NY. Also listed as living with them is Edward Vanacker, age 14, born in NY (I believe Edward is the brother of Rachael). I am trying to find the parents and/or siblings of Moses Robberd. Later census shows name as Roberts. I have been told that they might have been from Pond Eddy, NY. Any help in locating the parents or siblings or any info on Moses or Rachael would be most appreciated. Please e mail me at probets@aol.com if you have any info. I have a lot of info from Moses & Rachael descendants. Thank you.

STRICKLAND
Charles Nussman
I was given over to be fostered by the Strickland family of Monticello in around 1946, with whom I lived until around 1955. We lived at 81 High Street. While I was taken care of by a woman I only remember as "Nanny," the house was that of Walter Strickland and his wife, Ida. They had two daughters, Doris and Ruth, and sometimes fostered other children. Any information on the family would be very appreciated. Unfortunately, I have blocked out a lot from my memory . . . and I'd very much like to recover my childhood.
