Seeking information on three intertwined families who resided around Oxford, Chenango County. Abijah BROWN (1799-1872) & his wife Maria SHOFF (1807-1867) had a son Ira W. BROWN on 25 Mar 1824 in Oxford. In the same vicinity were Orson LAMSON (1807-1879) & his wife Elizabeth SHOFF (1813-1866) whose daughter, Julia P. LAMSON was born 10 Jan 1831. Ira W. BROWN & Julia P. LAMSON were married in Ohio in 1848. When Orson LAMSON'S 1st wife died, he married her sister, Sarah SHOFF. I believe the SHOFFS & the BROWNS were originally from Chenango County, although ORSON LAMSON was born in Connecticut. Does anyone have any information regarding these families? Especially the SHOFFS, since I think Maria was also a sister to Elizabeth & Sarah. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To Maureen (tried your e-mail address and it was returned) who posted May 17, 1999 re: Moses and Mary BENNETT:
Saw your post in the Chenango County Gen Web site queries.....My Levi BENNETT emigrated from New York (Orange County? Chenango County?) to Gibson, Pennsylvania (Susquehanna County) sometime between 1790 and 1810...(I think). He married Lydia BELCHER... Levi has been a roadblock for me for years...many tips but not proof yet. Is it possible your Moses and Mary BENNETT were his parents? My Levi had a son, William, and a grandson, William. His William grandson was my gr-gr grandfather and served with the 18th Michigan in the Civil War. He lived in the Ionia / Montcalm counties area.....

Val Barney Thu May 11 14:29:02 2000
I have just heard of a family momento belonging to a "cousin". It is a newspaper article in the Courtland Standard Evening News, dated Mar 15, 1920. I believe this is from Chenango County somewhere. Possibly Norwich or McGraw?
Article is about Otis NEWELL, titled "From Missouri to Pacific". There is a reference to May 4, 1860 as his starting date from Kansas with a partner, Mr Chase, to California in a wagon train beginning with about 7 wagons and ending up with about 40. It also mentions he is from Norwich with many relatives in McGraw(sp?).
I will pay or whatever to have a copy of this as well as find out any info on this Otis NEWELL as I believe he will be the missing link I have to my GGGrandfather, Orrin W NEWELL.
Thanks to everyone, Val Barney - dignity@cet.com

The following is an exerpt that was sent to me from the History of Chenango and Madison Counties, New York. I am trying to follow up on this Clarissa who married Azor WOOD. I believe she was my great great grandmother:

Page 350
who married a man named Cox, a brother of Isaac Cox. Savage, Nash and Robbins, who were then young men, came in company from Ballston, Saratoga county, from Unadilla by a foot-path indicated by blazed trees, and settled near what has since been known as the old four corners. Savage located on a part of the farm now occupied by Lucius Shelton, near where the widow Orrin Gridley now lives, about two miles north of Guilford. Nash, on the top of the hill, near Van Buren Corners, on the site of the residence of the widow Brant; and Robbins, where Philo Shelton now lives. Robbins was taken sick with the small-pox, and when sufficiently recovered he and Nash went back to Ballston, leaving Savage to toil alone in the wilderness for seven months, till their return. They came in the spring and the following February Savage brought in his family. There was then but one house in Guilford Center. It stood where John Young now lives and was occupied by a man named Carney, who soon after died, and was buried in the woods on the creek, near the Hiram Burlison place.(*) Savage died where he settled in 1846. He had three children, Almira, who married Charles Cobb, who,

(*) Discourse by Rev. S. N. Robinson, A. M., on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the First Congregational Church of Guilford, of which he was pastor, to which we are indebted for other facts.

after her death, at the Center, removed to the North River; Giles, who married Keziah, daughter of James Phelps, and settled at Guilford Center, where his wife died Dec. 31, 1864, aged 73; and Clarissa, who married Azor Wood and lived and died near Guilford Center. Giles was a soldier in the war of 1812. He was killed on the railroad in Michigan some years previous to the death of his second wife, having become slightly deranged. One of his daughters who is living in Kansas is the only one of the family left.

Bernie McDowell Wed May 17 13:57:07 2000
In the 1840 NY Census--Chenango County, Page 153 Division of Arnold Field is listed Develle HARRIS. There is also a Thomas HARRIS listed 6 spaces below Develle. Develle V. HARRIS married Amanda CARRIER on September 18, 1836, apparently at her fathers home or town in Otsego County, NY. Her father was John Lyman CARRIER. According to the census, there is a male child under 5 (which would be David R. HARRIS, b1839), a male under 10, another male under 20 and Develle himself, between 20 and 30. The female between 20 and 30 would be Amanda. This marriage is documented in the CARRIER family bible but no other entry exists for Develle. No death, military or divorce is mentioned, although most other family members have their deaths listed. I have also not seen a document, other than the Bible for the marriage. Develle just disapears after the census listing. The Thomas HARRIS listed below Develle is between 50 and 60 with a woman between 60 and 70. These could be the parents of Develle. I would love to hear from anyone who has any information on this Develle. It is such an unusual name, one would think it would not be so hard to find something on him. Their first son was named David Russell HARRIS, the Russell comes from the mother's side. There is something printed on the side of the census page, right next to the listing for Develle (12th line) but I cannot read it.
I have been looking for Develle for at least 14 years.....anyone????? PS This man is my husband's 2nd great grandfather.

I have a strong hunch that my husband's ever so great gf was Joseph POOL(E), who reportedly was b. 1767 in Jericho, Chenango County NY. (I believe his father may also have been named Joseph.) Hopefully, there is someone out there who can connect this man with Immigrant Edward POOLE of MA and his numerous descendants....of course, it would be wonderful to know something specific about the POOLE family life in Chenango County, and as long as I'm wishing, what was Joseph's first wife's maiden name?

All I have is her marriage certificate 1868 in IL stating that her father, Wm who lived in NY state gave authority to a David Murphy to give permission for her to marry. She had one son 1869 and is on 1870 IL census. By 1880 census she no longer lives there but son (11yo) does. Later found out that the son was raised by one of his aunts and that Mary died (not sure where) early on and was buried back east. Maybe NY? Back then could they ship a body from IL to NY? Maybe she died in NY and husband brought son back to IL before 1880 census. What a mystery! Can anyone help? Thanks.

Searching for information on these three HARRIS families. There is a book prepared by Gale Ion HARRIS in 1981 titled, "Families of Elisha, Joseph and Woodruff HARRIS of Chenango County, New York and Geauga and Portage Counties, Ohio". Elisha HARRIS, ca 1772-1841, Joseph HARRIS, ca 1775-1838, Woodruff HARRIS 1790-1837. In the "History of Chenango & Madison Counties, NY" by James H. Smith, published in 1880, Elisha and Woodruff HARRIS are listed as having arrived in Smithville in 1808. Are these three brothers? Did they come from Connecticut?

I am looking for information on the Elijah FOSTER family. Elijah moved to Sherburne in 1793. The last date I have for him being in Sherburne was 1835. He does not show up in the 1840 census, so he may have died between 1835 and 1840. Elijah was married to Sarah (Sally) THOMPSON 1801? until her death in 1805. (Elijah may have had a wife previous to Sarah and one after Sarah's death). One son I know of was Lyman (my ggg-grandfather) born in 1802. The 1810 census indicates that Elijah's family consisted of about 7 sons and 2 daughters. Other sons may be Asa, Christopher, Industry. Any help with this family would be greatly appreciated.

Linda Wed Jun 28 14:25:35 2000
As quoted on this site from History of Madison and Chenango Co., by Smith--"Capt. John CHANDLER" as being an early settler in Pitcher. I was sent copies years ago from the library in your county, and what was sent to me makes no mention of Capt. John CHANDLER. Perhaps I am missing some pertinent pages. I would appreciate it if someone could clarify this for me.

I do see one place in my papers where he is referred to as "Col". Jonathan CHANDLER, Sr. b. 1762 is who I believe they are referring to. He married Sarah EASTON. I would love to contact anyone who descends from this couple. They had several sons, among them: Samuel, Oliver E., Jonathan, Jr., Walter, Horace, Loel, Abel, Harry, and Hiram. The only daughter I know of is Sally. Several of these men appear in the 1850 census of Chenango.
