Am trying to find information on Miriam/Merion HALLETT (b. 31 Jan 1822, supposedly Bainbridge, Chenango County, NY) and Albert ROUNDS (b. 14 Jan 1810, supposedly in Foster, Providence, RI. or Tioga County, PA). They were married 5 Oct 1848, in Bainbridge and may have had at least three children there: Alvah Bush ROUNDS, Ellen Josephine ROUNDS, and Mary Ann ROUNDS. I can find neither birth nor death records on the Chenango County site, or any other -- so far. Miriam is the daughter of Solomon HALLETT and Eleanor CLEVELAND Burgess Hallett, both who may have died in Bainbrige. I would like to know if Miriam and Albert died in Chenango County or if they moved elsewhere. Any help will be appreciated.

Looking for historical records Re: Harvey TALCOTT b. late 1700's d. 1847 cited as son of Joshua TALCOTT Sr. who settled in Sherburne in late 1700's. Several historical summaries connect Harvey as Joshua's son but I can't find birth, death, burial or marriage records to confirm. Harvey's sibs are cited as Joshua Jr. married Sarissa and Jemima who married Joshua PRATT. Cousin Leman H. TALCOTT who's father Joshua Jr bought Porter farm.

Historical documents i.d. Harvey was Postmaster of Smyrna 1829-1841, active in IOOF. Some trees say he had a son Dwight H. and a wife Mary but I have found no historical records.
All help appreciated.

Charles HARKIN - - - - - - - - -Born: 1858 in New York ­ He was a cigar maker.

Martha Alice HARKIN - - - - - Born: 1859 in New York ­ Died: 1865
