FENTON family
Any info on Lt. Solomon FENTON b 23 Jun 1749 Mansfield (Tolland) CT. M Sibbell 'SNOW on 19 Aug 1772 in Mansfield (Tolland) CT. She d 20 Sep 1824 in Oxford (Chenango) NY. Children: Nathan b 26 Jun 1773; Washington; Polly S.; Solomon; Fanny; Sibbell. One of the daughters married Ira Barbour McFARLAND in Chenango Co. Also Robert Elijah FENTON II b 11 Oct 1780 Mansfield (Tolland) CT. He resided 1800 in Burlington (Otsego) NY with his brothers Malachi, and William. By 1855 he was in Greene (Chenango) NY with his wife Loisa STEPHENS b 20 Feb 1781 in Smithville Flats (Chenango) NY. She d 18 Nov 1860 in Smithville Flats. Children as far as I can determine were: Peter, Susan Amelia, Palmer Robert, Lucy A., and Laura A. It appears this family went to MONROE CO., NY, for a while and then returned to Chenango Co. There were two grandchildren living with Robert and Loisa at different times; one Martha M. b abt 1846 in Chenango Co., the other Jacob. They married into the SNOW family from Chenango Co. ALSO Eliah Fenton, Esq., who resided in Pitcher (Chenango) NY. Am especially looking for Harriett Arinda FENTON born to Philo FENTON and Mary GOODSELL. She was b in Chenango Co. in 1842. I have not been able to locate her father PHILO anywhere, but apparently she was from the FENTONS who went from Chenango to Otsego, back to Chenango, and then some of each of these families went to STEUBEN Co., NY and on to Michigan. Thank you, Kay Brownell

I am trying to identify the maiden name/parents of Chloe (--?--) GILMORE, wife of Lemuel GILMORE, both bu. Coventry Village cem. near Greene, Chenengo Co., NY. They were m. 20 Aug 1778, Raynham, MA by the Rev. M. Fobes. Lemuel GILMORE, b. 28 Apr 1756, Raynham, MA, d. 24 Nov 1826. Chloe d. 16 Jun 1849, age 89y, 4m [b. 27 Feb 1760]. Some have said that Chloe’s maiden name was COLE but I have never been able to verify this. Do any Chenango Co. records give her maiden name? Did she ever remarry? They had nine children, most of whom were apparently born in MA. It is probable that Lemuel & Chloe migrated from MA to Westmoreland, NH with their son Arba sometime before 1808. Arba moved to Coventry in 1818 and his parents apparently followed. Arba and others of the family are also bu. in the Coventry Village cem.

HOWK, David
I am looking for information concerning the Howk family further back then my family geneologist currently has. The information I have is as follows:
Eli B. Howk born Feb 11 1811 in Germantown, Chenango Co., the Son of David Howk and Polly Bradley. David Howk was born March 20, 1786, married Feb 01 1810 to Polly Bradley who was born June 17 1789. David died April 03, 1851. Polly died March 17, 1871. Eli married Helen Ann Russel in 1833 in New York State. At some point, Eli moved to Wellington County, Ohio, after which the family history is clear. David's father's name was John Howk. The narrative of the family history earlier then this reads: The Howk family originally migrated from Germany near the Netherlands Border in the 1600's and settled on Staten Island, New York. The original family name was Van Howk or Van Huck or Van Hook or Van Huyk and was later changed to simply HOWK. (Houk was written on an old property deed but is most likely a misspelling) probably some time in the late 17th or early 18th century...I have been told that at the time the family migrated from Germany they were titled people and well set up. The property belonging to them in New York was somehow cheated out of them and that was the reason for there migration further west. Any further information would be most deeply appreciated.
