I am looking for Reuben BUMP, Sr..born 3-1-1746-47 Wareham MA, died c1800-1810 Chenango Co NY. Am also looking for this Reuben's wife who probably died Chenango also. I don't know where Reuben Sr or his wife is buried.

I know Reuben BUMP Jr is buried in 1st Bapt Cem, Afton, Chenango. His dates are Dec 25, 1776 - July 29, 1868 married to Margaret CARPENTER and Jerusha GLEASON (or WHEAT??)

I am especially looking for Reuben Sr's wife. She may have been a WARNER and her name might have been Lucy, Abigail, or Isabel.

If you know anything about these people, would you respond to me? If you have access to Chenango's cemeteries, I would appreciate your looking up info about the BUMP family.
Thank you so much,

I am looking for information about my 3x grandfather, Luther NEWTON b 1781 in MA according to family records. He had as spouse, Eunice D. In 1816 they migrated to the Geneganslet Corner's area of Chenango County. Supposedly they had son Dexter b 1804 in MA, son Hubbard b 1811 VT,son William H. b 1815 VT and daughters. Many with NEWTON surname in Chenango Co. and my main question concerning Luther is what NEWTON line he is descended from.

He d. 1 Dec 1855. Other names in his family may be Allen, Nathan/Nahum. Anything about this group would be appreciated.

I'm very interested in a family that is found on the 1850 Barker, Broome Co. census in 1850, and then in Colesville Broome 1860 & 1870, and finally in Greene, Chenango Co. NY in 1880. Nathaniel COOK died between 1880 and 1900 and his wife is still living in Greene on the 1900 census. Nathaniel was born abt. 1822 and my goal is find his parents, I'm pretty persuaded that he is the son of Jesse COOK and Ruth KING. I've documented 4 of their children, but am missing some of them. Four of Nathaniel & Mary Mariah's children were buried in Chenango in the Lower Page Brook cemetery, but I've not located Nathaniel's burying place or death date. I'm very aware that these towns border each other on both sides of the County line. Anyone with knowledge of Nathaniel?? his wife's maiden name?, his parents?? Thanks, John b.

Seeking facts on my GG grandfather "Daniel" Dewitt Clinton CLARK and family. Dewitt C CLARK was born in Smyrna, NY in 1845. He may have gone by "Daniel". He was married to Louisa S. They "adopted" Mabel CLARK (9/1882). Her real mother is rumored to be a "Molly BRANT". Molly was allegedly a Native American. According to family legend, she worked on Dewitt C CLARK's "hops" farm near Smyrna, and Dewitt is Mabel's real father.

CLARK was also a private in Co, A 157 Regt, New York Infantry and 55 "Co, 2" Battalion veteran Reserve Corps during the Civil War. He was enrolled on the 8/11/1862. Discharged 9/15/1865, at Philadelphia PA. According to Civil War Pension records, Dewitt C CLARK was 5'7", had light complexion, blue eyes brown hair, and by occupation when enrolled, a farmer.

Any additional facts on Daniel, Mabel, Louisa S, and Molly BRANT would be greatly appreciated.

Their names are George Albert TUTTLE and Ann TUTTLE. George was a harness maker and a saddler. One of their children was Almira who was Jim's great grandmother. When he was little she taught him to read. We would really appreciate your help in finding the location where the Tuttles lived. We would really like to see it.

Looking for specific death date and location for my GG grandmother, Alice Irene (HARRIS) AUSTIN from Chenango County, NY. She was born in Lewis county, NY and was married to Henry S. AUSTIN of McDonough, Chenango County, NY

Verbal family history has her working as a housekeeper for the FAIRCHILD family in either Oxford or Greene during the late 1920's or early 1930 (possibly either 1928 or 1929). She supposedly died while working in their home.

I'd like to find someone in the area who would be willing to look through the old newspapers for the area during that time period to locate a copy of her obit or perhaps research the local historian documents. I'd be willing to pay reasonable costs associated with this request or will "trade" for research in the Tioga County, area of NY.

Thanking you in advance for any assistance offered.
