TRACY, Charles Peter (or vice-versa) b 17 May 1802, (suspect Chenango Co) NY parents unknown (mother likely an AVERY, since has son by that name) md Betsey (surname unknown) b 12 Apr 1811, (?) NY. They had: Eber b 1832; Lydia Ann b 1835; Sarah M. b 1837; Edward C. b 1839; Mary Jane b 1841; Charles Avery 1844, all born (?) NY. Their last child, Phebe A. Louisa is the only one I have been able to locate a birth record and that was in the Town records of Eden, Erie Co., NY. She was born 5 Dec 1847.
I have the Family Bible of Edward TRACY and it lists complete birthdates and some death dates, but no birthplaces. AVERY may be the connecting link to the TRACY's of Connecticut back to Lieutenant Thomas TRACY. Are there Town Records available in Chenango County ? Need Charles Peter's parents to proceed ! Would also like his marriage record to Betsey !

I am looking for information on the Lewis WINSLOW family who lived in New Berlin township. Lewis was living in New Berlin as early as 1810. He died there in 1840. His widow Hepzibah died there in 1859. I would like the names and ages of all of their children. I think it's possible that my Caroline Winslow who was born in 1813 was one of their children.

I am trying to find information on my ggg-grandmother. Her maiden name was Elizabeth S. DUTELIEX. She was born in Sherburne, Chenango Co., NY. The date of birth is unknown. This unusual surname was also spelled as DEUTALIER in one source. I do not know what the true spelling is. She later married Jacob Burr Drake of Delaware Co., NY. She died 12 Oct 1884. I am seeking information on her parents or anything on this surname. One family record also lists her as Elizabeth SOUTHWORTH. I am unsure as to weather her maiden name was DUTELIEX or SOUTHWORTH. One may be a first marriage. I am hoping someone in Chenango Co. knows something of this family who would have been there in the early 1800's. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
