Does anyone have any information on Gersham and Lydia DAVIS that live in Oxford, NY in the 1850's? I think he had a son Charles who married Ann Eliza SMITH and they had a son Charles born about 1851 and a son Gorsham born about 1853. Anything on this family would be appreciated. I think they lived around Chenango County and surrounding areas.

Flows From Bleecker Mountain
The source of the Cayadutta is in the town of Johnstown, part way up the side of the Bleecker mountain, on the west side of the highway just above the barn on the Edward Smullen farm. From there it dashes and splashes over rocks down the mountain side along the highway and through Bull Rum. It keeps within sight of the Bleecker road and first appears in Gloversville as it crosses West Eleventh avenue, near the city line. Passing through Gloversville and Johnstown, it leaves Fulton county at Sammonsville and pours into the Mohawk river in the western part of Fonda. The Cayadutta was never deep or big enough to be used by the Indians for transportation but Indian paths ran along its banks and it was highly valuable to them for fishing. On its bank was situated one of the two Indian villages which are known to have existed in Fulton county. This village site was discovered in 1892 and Indian archeologists have determined that it was occupied by Iroquois a little before 1600. It was located on the east bank of the Cayadutta a mile or thereabouts upstream from Sammonsville.

Please anyone with information on this family please email @ MyRootz2@aol.com

Ryan Beach Wed Nov 28 10:29:00 2007
Hi List, My name is Ryan BEACH, I traced my BEACH family back to Henry BEACH born Canada about 1800.married Polly COOK some of their children Obit, states they where born in Chenango county New York, three of them where born 1828, 1830, 1831. Enos, Clarinda, Sophia, then another child Joseph Cyrus BEACH was born in Chautauqua county New York 1836 Town of Clymer.
Enos married Sarah Jane BEAN.
Clarinda married William Henry KING.
Sophia married Peter BIGLER.
Joseph Cyrus married Mary Ellen OVAITTE
by census two daughters I can't account for.

The last I find my Henry BEACH is in the 1835 census of Chautauqua county New York, then nothing till his wife shows up in Crawford county Pa town of Titusville in 1850.

Im trying to find when he came to Chenango county, I believe but not sure that James Kerr BEACH in Parsalia is his brother. My Henry is in the 1830 census of Chenango county town of Pharsalia. I was wondering if anyone has access to the 1825 state census to see if my Henry BEACH is listed or any new BEACH families that may have popped up that where not in the 1820 census, if so this may give me a lead as to Henry's father.

Did any one else have ancestors from Chenango who came from Canada ??. Was their a little Migration in the early 1800s people coming from Canada,?? What could have brought them there ?? Family ?, Jobs,? what's in Chenango in 1800-1830??.

I have been looking into Jonathan BEACH, who had a daughter Mary BEACH, who married a Dr Norman FORD. Anyone on the list have info on this family?? Where came from when he showed up in Chenango county NY.

My line comes in with Enos BEACH, 1828 Chenango, died 1907 Titusville Crawford county Pa, married Sarah Jane BEAN, children.
Matilda 1851.
Henry 1853.
Nancy 1857.
John 1859.
Joseph Cyrus 1862.-1938 (my line)
Charles Enos.1866.
Arthur 1872.
George Frederick.1875

At a brick wall here, any leads would be appreciated, I belong to the BEACH family list and have had my DNA tested, but nothing closer then 1200 years to a possible match.and that was a different last name, and I believe he was from Scotland.
