Searching for information pertaining to my maternal GG grandparents, Henry Stephen AUSTIN and Alice Irene HARRIS Austin home in MacDonough near German in Chenango County. It was located on the Austin Rd which had previously belonged to a Joe BURKHOLDER.

At this time, I have no estimated date when Henry purchased the property or when he and his family settled in the area from Lewis County. Henry and Alice had six children: Mary, Fred, Mabel, Cora, Elon (my G grandfather) and Floyd.

Whether the property was sold before Henry's death on May 6, 1955 or afterwards, is unknown but I was told that a Mr. WHITE purchased it then later sold it to Joe LOCKSMITH.

Would like to correspond with anyone who might have information about this property or any of the children of Henry and Alice AUSTIN or who would be willing to research county or town records to locate information about the property. I would be willing to pay reasonable costs associated with this request.

Thank you!

Ray Horton Tue Jan 29 10:03:09 2002
My gg grandfather William YOUNG, died in Bainbridge 17 Nov 1906. According to death registry cert., he was buried in Bainbridge. Checked, and he's not in Greenlawn Cem. Others have done some checking for me and so far can't find him in other nearby cemeteries. In 1880 census he was in NYC with his wife Elizabeth and 9 children, occupation baker. The death reg. has his occupation as farmer. Because the death reg. has him as a farmer, I suspect he may have moved up to Bainbridge area. But I don't know that for sure - may have just been visiting when he died.

Some info on the death reg. that I haven't yet pursued: It shows Funeral Director - Wm Hastings & Son. Does anyone know if there are any records around from that Funeral Dir.? William died of Pneumonia - the Attending physician was J.V. Jacob. Would that be any kind of lead that can be pursued. Also, would any newspaper be available in some library with an obit?

Would someone be able to check the 1860 and 1900 censuses for me? Names of William's children were John (b1854) (m. Susan KEYES), Martha (b1855), William James (b1857), Rachel (b1857), George Thomas (b1861) (m. Achsa in 1899, then lived in Windsor, NY), Jane Elizabeth (b1865), Thomas Alexander (b1870), Richard David (b1873), Charles Francis (b1875) and Samuel (b1876).
Any help would be appreciated? - Ray.

I have been a lurker for quite a while and just decided to see if I could find someone else who is looking for any of these names.
My great grandfather was Daniel BURR b. 1848 married Martha Ellen GAGE b. 1848. gggrandparents are Daniel BURR, Cyrena Smith STEERE who apparently had no parents ;), Nelson Richard GAGE, Irene LEWIS, ggggrandparents; Daniel BURR, Urania ALCOTT, Richard GAGE, Hannah BAILEY, Nathaniel Clark LEWIS and Hannah BURR. I have some dates but not all that I need.
When Great gradfather Daniel lived in so. New Berlin I believe he had a brick yard. They eventually moved to California where my grandfather was born. I know as of 1900 that the GAGEs were still in the area..

If anyone has any of these names on their groups, I'd like to get in touch with you?
I do have among my pictures, one of the house they lived in while living in NY.
Thanks, Chris H.

I'm trying to find the birth place of my Ggfa Joel Cornelius SANDERS. Born Lincoln County, Ny according to Civil War discharge certificate. But I have learned there is no Lincoln County Ny. But since this county and Township is close to Manlius, Onondaga Co., Ny where his father and my GGgmo Louisa HILLS where married I was hoping that Licklean was pronounced Lincoln in those days and that my SANDERS / SAUNDERS roots are here. I'm at the proverbiable brick wall on my GGgfa and birth location of his son Joel Cornelius SANDERS. My GGgfa was Wm Charles SANDERS / SAUNDERS as he always claimed. He supposedly was raised by Indians and spoke the tongue fluently. GGgfa married Louisa HILLS of Truxton Cortland Co., Ny abt 1830 in Manlius, Onondaga Co. Ny. She is buried Waterloo. Black Hawk County, Iowa. She was in Green county Wisc and then Iowa. I have not found Wm Charles SANDERS yet.

I'm interested in trying to find out who the Wm SANDERS is that appears in the 1830 Lincklaen Census as head of household. Part of the census was missing at the top so I could not determine what column was what. This was on ancestry.com. Don't think it was there fault it was condition of the census. I suspect that this could be my GGgfa Wm Charles SANDERS (he was b. abt 1810) who married my GGgmo Louisa HILLS in Manlius, Onondaga Co., in abt 1830. In looking at the map for this web site I see that Truxton, Cortland Co. is just aways over the line from Lincklaen. The point being my GGgmo was born in Truxton.
GGgfa always claimed name was SAUNDERS and I see quite a few SAUNDERS buried in Lincklaen. Does anyone know anything about this Wm SANDERS?.

Looking for any information about Job HARRINGTON and Hannah BLANCHARD. Job HARRINGTON was born 1792, probably in VT. Hannah BLANCHARD was probably born about 1799, maybe in VT or NY. They were married before 1816, probably in VT and moved to McDonough, Chenango County, NY. They may have also lived for a time in the town of German. They raised 8 children: Charles, William, Eliza, Joseph, Lyman, Silas, Abigail and Julia. Hannah died 28 Jan 1838 and is buried in the Union Cemetery in McDonough. After her death, Job married Lydia (TRACY) YEAW, widow of Washington YEAW and had at least one more child. Job died 11 Sept 1866 in Triangle, Broome County, NY. Does anyone have additional info about this family, particularly parents and/or siblings of Job HARRINGTON and Hannah BLANCHARD? Have info about some of their children and am willing to share.

Sally SKINNER is purported to be the daughter of Luther SKINNER, born 1787 in Ostelic, Chenango county. Does anyone have any news of her? She married Jabes STREETER who is said to have been born in Vermont by all the federal census records. They were married in Addision, Vermont in February 1813 and were both "of Milton", Vermont at that time and lived in Milton for two decades according to census records, but town records were lost in a fire.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Whoever submitted the ROOT's family picture please get in touch. I'm 99% sure that the elderly woman 2nd from the right in the second row is Emma (CARPENTER) DIXSON. Do you recognize the name? We have a few pictures which we'd be glad to share but have no knowledge of the connection to the ROOT family. We also may know who the lady in the hat on the right hand side of the first row is, but we'd have to do a little investigating in our records. Let us know if your as curious as we are at joev@aol.com ...joe
