There are a few BLIMELYs on my site, as well as a slew of Palatine relatives.
If anyone has information on SCHUMACHERs from Claverack and/or Gallatin, I'd
like to correspond.

Looking for information concerning the VanALEN family of Kinderhook. One of
their homes was The Gables, a 1000 acre farm in Kinderhook, New York. The
house was originally built in 1721 by the VanAlen family, and an addition
added in 1924. It was called "The Gables." The Carriage House at the Gables
was a speak-easy during the 1920s. The current owners have restored much of
the property and are running a B&B operation there.
Apparently the VanAlens primary home was in downtown Kinderhook and it is
listed in several historic-homes-of-New York references, and it may be
officially a historic site. I am interested in the family history of the
VanAlen's at the time of The Gables, 1721.
Is anyone working this family? Peter

My researching has brought me to Columbia Co., I am looking for more
information on the families of Peter I or T Hyser and Elly Fritz. They were
married in 1819 in Germantown. They were in Oswego Co. in 1829. Their
children Luman, Lyman and Arlet were baptised at the Mexico Presbyterian
Church. Their daughter Maria was admitted to the Mexico Pres. church (she
would have been 15 or 16 yrs) by profession of faith in 1831. I would like

other siblings. She must have come from a first marriage. She is my

I have been researching the Lay Family for over ten years. My line
starts with John Lay Sr. (Squire) b. 1610 in England, through his oldest
son John b. 1633, (by his first wife). Then into Columbia County, N.Y.
when Joseph and Marcy (Deming) Lay moved there just before the Rev.
War. Their son Edward, b. 1762 served in Rev. War. and his wife Patta
Sutherland received a land bounty for her husbands service.
Edward accompanied his older brother Rev. Samuel Lay to the area of
Seneca County of N.Y. in the area now known as Bridgeport, on the shores
of Cayuga Lake, where he helped build a log house for Samuel's wife and
9 children. They returned to Columbia County, where Edward remained and
Rev. Samuel Lay took his family back to Seneca County.
This family was well represented then and still has ancestors living in
the area. They were responsible for what was known as Laystown, on the
western edge of the Montezuma Swamp. Today there still remains Lay Road
and the old Marblestone house, and schoolhouse, both in good repair with
people living in them.
There son John moved to Wayne County after the death of his first wife
Ruth Crandall, He, along with his second wife Lucy Cornwell Fowler,
sons Ezra and Russell are buried in the Newark Cemetery, North Main St.
Newark, Wayne Co., N.Y.
My complete data base can be found at my web site
There you may download a GedCom file. Please e-mail me when you do. I
would like to know who else is researching these Lay lines, also if you
find anything that you question, PLEASE contact me so we can talk about
it and try to get things straight (meaning that there are mistakes, we
all have them).
I also have information on John (Squire) Lay Sr's. brother Robert Lay,
family and some of that line. Would appreciate any and all information
pertaining to these lines.
Hope to hear from some of you.

I am looking for information about or descendants of Joseph Elliott
(1727-1796) who is buried at Ancrum. His wife was Gertraut Schmidt of the
1709 Palatines. I have no information about her death date or burial

I have posted this to both the Curtis list and the Dutchess County NY list in
the past without any luck. Perhaps someone on this new list may be able to
My great grandfather Egbert Silvernail HOYSRADT (also spelled Hiserodt or
Heuzeroth) was born 25 NOV 1827 in Columbia County NY (probably Ancram). His
parents are identified on his marriage certificate as Jacob HOYSRADT and
Harriet CURTIS. As an adult, Egbert moved to Kenosha county, WI, where he
married Margaret Theresa MURPHY, an immigrant from England.
I have not been able to find any further information on Jacob HOYSRADT,
although I believe he may be one of twin sons born to Hen(d)rich HOYSRADT and
Catharina HOLSAPPEL on 10 MAR 1797.
Of Harriet I know only (from a great aunt) that she had a brother (or nephew?)
Philo CURTIS, whose son Cyrus married an Esther SWENSON. Their daughter
Virginia married Charles Egbert ALVERS, a grandson of Egbert and Margaret
Can anyone give me any clues as to Harriet's parentage?
Does anyone have any information on the parents of the following

the first Jonathan apple tree.
