Re: Levi M. PATCHEN, shown as Testator, Residence Guilford, Volume and Page: Vol. O, P. 89 in the Index to Testators, 1868-1869.

Could someone find out for me whether this was a member of the same PATCHEN family that had many members in Geauga County, OH and in Morgan County, Illinois? I know we had "Levi PATCHENs"; however, I don't know middle names for most.

Help is much appreciated.

They were all my father, Mark De Elton HYDE's ancestors, and I want to know more about them, especially more about Sarah Irene RANDALL (wife #1 of Charles Philetus HYDE)--- they were from the Pitcher, NY area...also, Asa ADAMS and his wife, Elizabeth (b: NY, moved to Illinois) who's daughter, Sarah (b:Illinois in 1849) was married to Chauncey De Elton HYDE of Pitcher, NY== who was in the 76th Reg. His brother Charles Addison HYDE is buried at Gettysburg, where he died on July 4th 1863 of his wounds he recieved on July 1, 1863.

Samuel PIERCE and Charles HYDE (grandfather of the one at Gettysburg and father of Charles Philetus HYDE---Yes, there were a lot of Charles HYDEs in a row!!) were deacons along with Joanna Pierce HYDE (Samuel's daughter and Charles's wife) at the Pitcher Congregational Church during the war of 1812 and they moved to Pitcher from Connecticut. (Joanna Pierce HYDE was a direct descendant of Gov. Wm. BRADFORD of the Mayflower Colony). I want to find out how to get copies of their sermons or something that can tell me that they were Patriots for the War of 1812, so I can join the Daughters of 1812---right now I am a prospective member and we go around NY State and mark the graves of proven 1812 Patriots. I am already a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and a prospective member of the Mayflower Association for CT., where most of my ancestors came to NY from and a lot of them were founders of CT.

Sarah ADAMS' father, Asa and her mother Elizabeth are of particular interest to me, and I'm wondering what Elizabeth's maiden name was...also the given name of Asa's father...and why did they move to Winnebago County, Ill. from NY in the mid 1800's?

Andrew Jackson COOPER of Tioga County is another person of interest to me and also his wife, Sarah PALMER (Yes, ther were a lot of Sarah's in my father's family!!) I would like to know who their parents were...Sarah and A.J. COOPER were my grandmother, Maude L. COOPER's parents and my father's maternal grandparents....

My father was Mark De Elton HYDE, b:8/05/1915 in Cortland, NY, and his wife's name (my mother's name) is Melba...she was born in St. Louis, MO.

I put some of this information on here in case it helps someone else out in the Central NY area, and also in case someone knows more about the above ancestors of my father, who died in an auto accident on May 1, 1969---I still miss him to this day. He attended Cortland State Teacher's College in the 1930's---he was a history major, and was the son of farmers in McLean, NY. He removed us to Syracuse, NY in 1944, where he worked downtown in sales after being honorably discharged from the Army Air Corps. He and my mother moved back to James St in the late 1950's and also had an " 'A & W' Root Beer" stand on Route 281 in Prebble, NY for a long time, and he bought his western style clothes, etc. at "Buck and Bum's"...

Thanks for your time...and possible interest....Happy 2007.

Looking for burial location of my grandfather, Frank WALLA, who lived in Binghamton, Broome, NY from 1928 until 1947. He was a member of St. Anne's Slovak RC Church, and his wife, Filomena (KUPECZ) WALLA is buried in St. Anne's Slovak RC Cemetery. Her funeral was handled through Greskovic Funeral home in 1939.

John and Patience WOOLDRIDGE lived in Smyrna as early as 1830. In 1850 they have one son William WOOLDRIDGE. In 1860 Willam is living with Patience but John must have died. There is a J. W. WOOLDRIDGE buried in the East Smyrna Cemtery who died in 1858. William WOOLDRIDGE married Jane Jennette ELWELL about 1865 and they are found in the 1870 census of Plymouth. I would like to know if there are marriage records or death records from this time period. It appears John and Patience WOOLDRIDGE were from Vermont. I would like to find someone who knows of this family group. William and Jennette moved on to Michigna by 1874 and then to Nebraska by 1880. I believe William WOOLDRIDGE died in Nebraska about 1880-85 when Jennette returned to Michigan with their children.

Leroy Amaziah, b 1828 Bainbridge
John Wesley, m 1826 Bainbridge
William [Jr], d 1854 Bainbridge

This is my direct line, and my mo, a CLEVELAND, massaged it pretty well decades ago; however, the ? of who Wm [Sr]'s fa is has existed for over 100 years. Everything on the Inet accepts the conjecture of the 1899 CLEVELAND genealogy book. My mo questioned that conjecture 50 years ago, and after studying it I question it even more. I've written up my thinking, or lack of it, and would like other opinions. In relation to that I have ?s:
1. Does anyone have the will of Wm [Sr]'s poss fa, Curtice, b 1701 Plainfield / Canterbury CT, d 1758 prob Norwich CT?
2. Does anyone have anything on his poss fa, Josiah, b 1706-9 prob N Kingston, RI, d prob aft 1752 prob Kennilworth / Killingsworth CT?

Sally, b 1804 Bainbridge
Samuel, d 1855 Bainbridge

Again, this is my direct line; John Wesley, above, m Sally 1826 Bainbridge. Of course, I'm always willing to learn more, but I mainly need a photo:
Samuel LYON & wif Charlotte BRIGGS, 1860 Bainbridge, are buried in W Bainbridge Cemetery, so, would anyone be willing to get me a photo of that gravesite?
Apparently that cemetery hasn't been transcribed yet, and of course it's possible the marker(s) are missing or can't be read.
Thanks, Bob Brewer
