Hello out there! Anyone home? I don't seem to be getting many posts.
I don't know if the list has gone dead or if I have just been kicked
In trying to find my Sally Lamphere --[born b. 12 Dec 1795 probably (I
don't know where), died 12 Mar 1860. She married John Seccomb, b. 15
Sep 1780 died
6 May 1857. They are both buried in the Benson Rd. Cemetery or
Cuddeback Cemetery in Skaneatales, New York]-- I found these
Lamphere's and other spellings in the will section for Cayuga County,
Name Will date or
probate date (I'm still
learning about wills)
Eathan Lanfear 13 June 1864
John Lamphere 12 July 1817
Allen Lamphere 21 Nov 1864
Oscar Lamphere 22 June 1872
Cornelius Lamphere 23 May 1873
I'm thinking that John Lamphere with the earliest death date could be
Sally Lamphere's father. I'm going to be checking at least his will.
Just thought someone else might be interested in this information. If
anyone knows anything about this John Lamphere, let me know. When I
find specific information I'll post it to the list.
Even though Sally Lamphere, then Sally Seccomb, and John Seccomb are
not listed in the index for the 1850 NY census it is quite possible that
they were there and just left off the index. They should be there.
Their daughter got married there in 1840. It seemed my only hope on
finding out where Sally was born. I will post any information that I
find on all the Lamphe****s that I find in that census and any in the
census records before. I'm just not sure how long it will be before I
get back downtown to the Salt Lake Family History Center.
Is there some reason the list has gone inactive??
