I am trying to find the names of parents of Daniel Calkins.According to the
1850 census, he was born in 1790. He married Anna Pitts daughter of William
Pitts who was born in Chatham,Columbia County. They moved to Rensselaer
County and he died there, in the Town of Schaghticoke,in 1862.
Recently I found a reference to him in the Abstract of Wills for Columbia
Co." The will of John Calkins of Hillsdale mentions brothers Daniel and
Any help with the Calkins brothers will be greatly appreciated.
Philip Moon was supposed to have been born in Claverack, Columbia Co., NY
some time between 1778 & 1785. I am looking for a James Moon. He could very
well be Philip's brother, as both of them show in the Madison Co., NY 1830
census. No information has been found yet to confirm either of these two.
Does anybody have any information on them.

For those new to the list, I'm re-submitting my surnames, hoping to find a
connection to my relatives.
My Irish ancestors arrived from Ireland to Hudson, Columbia Cty., NY around
1850. First: Michael FLYNN, born about 1830 somewhere in Ireland. Married
Mary HOLLORAN, in Hudson, born about 1833 somewhere in Ireland, also.
There are more HOLLORAN'S: John, born about 1835 in Cty. Clare, arrived in
Hudson early 1860's, and James O'HALLORAN, born 1835 Ireland, arrived in
Hudson late 1850's. Also a David O'HALLORAN, born 1835 Ireland, arrived in
Hudson late 1860's. These families seemed to fluctuate between surname
Other surnames connected to the above: FREEL, FRAEL, WILLIAMS, (Ellen and
Mary), OPRAY (Jane), RYAN.
Please contact me if you have any relation to the above. Thank you. Mary L.

I've been looking around genealogy cyberspace for an on-line listing of COlumbia
town clerks (in particular for Hillsdale). Maybe it's bad luck or ignorance, but
I haven't found such a listing. Can anyone help here? Post send the relevant
URL, or the Hillsdale clerk's address. Thanks!
I've posted by surname to PolandBorder and Rootsweb. Where else can I post to
get my names out there to hopefully connect with others? I know my parents,
gparents and ggparents resided in both NJ & NY but not real sure of locations
yet so not sure where to post. Any help would be appreciated. I'd like to
make myself a list to keep track of where I've posted so I can track progress.
Loretta Schabowsky Sutton in Millville, Cumberland Co., NJ
Searching for:::SKABOWSKI/SCHABOWSKY, BOLCHON/BOLCHONUS, LUBY/LUBOWSKI for
starters on my father's side.
I am searching the BENNET and DARROW family who resided early in
Columbia County, New York.
Richard BENNET married Olive DARROW at New Lebanon in 1772 according
to family records.
I am interested in exchanging information with anyone searching these
families in this early timeperiod.
I would guess that the "Sullivan County" designation is a mistake. In
Livingston, Columbia Cty., NY, there are at least 3 cemeteries: St. John's
Evangelical Lutheran Church cemetery, the Manorton cemetery, and the Livingston
cemetery. I do not have access to any of the church records, although there is
an index of Columbia County gravestone inscriptions (names) in the Hillsdale

I need to verify this. I was looking through the LDS website and found that
Andreas and Anna Margaretha Pulver Simon/Simmons are buried in Livingston
Lutheran Cemetery, Livingston, Sullivan Co, NY. It just seems a little odd
to me that they are buried there. Their death records (according to Henry
Z. Jones) are listed in the Manorton Lutheran Churchbook, Columbia Co., NY.
Andreas Simon/Andrew Simmons: 1749-1836
Anna Margaretha Pulver Simon/Simmons: 1749-1837
What is the connection between the two churches?
Do any of you have access to the Livingston Lutheran records? Maybe Andreas
and Margaretha's children (specifically Conrad) have marriage and/or
children's baptismal records listed?
I'm in Europe. So, I have very limited resources.
Also, how can I get a copy of Andreas' will?
regarding the LDS website:
Well, their information DOES narrow down the timeframe. I looked up one
ancestor. According to the LDS files his first name is "Mr". His wife's
first name is not correct and their only child's birth year is one year off.
However, the last names are correct!!! It's still a good source. You
definitely need to verify everything!
I am seeking information about Frederick Belding Power b. 4 March 1853,
d. 26 March 1927. He had several degrees and was said to be a scientist.
He attended the First Presbyterian Church in Hudson, NY.
Well, thanks a million to all who replied.....Ends one quest and starts
another.------seems that JOHN, JONATHAN, or JONAS are likely names of the
next listed's father!!!
Hadn't imagined going back that far---but here I go!!!!
On a Baptismal record is the name of my g-g-g-g grandfather and next to it
his brother or father's name with "Jno" next to that ...I assumed it meant
"Junior" but am not sure........Any guesses/knowledge of this?
Philip Riedinger, b. c 1822, Blieskastel, Bayern, became a
well known potter in Poughkeepsie, NY, in the 1850's-1860's,
after having worked in the city of Hudson, Columbia Co. with
William RIEDINGER, in the 1840-early 1850 time period. I
do not know their relationship. Philip married Elizabeth KLADY,
also b. Germany. Their daughter, Mary Ellen, married Jacob
D.E. RITTER of Elizabeth, NJ. Philip died in 1868 in Poughkeepsie.
I am seeking information about the RIEDINGER and KLADY families
while in Columbia Co. Philip and Elizabeth were GGGrandparents.
Other children were Alexander, who moved to NJ; Lewis Philip
RIEDINGER, d. c1875, shortly after marrying Margaret J. RITTER
of Elizabeth, NJ. Their may also have been a daughter named Mary.
The spelling of RIEDINGER changed to REIDINGER in NJ, for some
I found the family in the 1860 Dutchess Co. census, but have been
unable to check the 1850 census for Columbia Co.
Thank you very much!
Ruth, St. Augustine, FL
Joe & Ruth Ryan
Deutch and Columbia folk,
I want to ask for your help in my family search.
I have been researching my BURNETT family for
five years. Recently, I have discovered that they
were likely, German Palatine, though the name sounds
Scottish or English.
My question is, have any of you got BURNETT connections
in the Lutheran Churches of Columbia, Dutchess, Geene,
Schoharie, or Albany Co.s? I will post a copy of this
message to several list.
I have copies of several BURNETT Baptismals from the
Athens, NY Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, 1704 - 1899.
There is perhaps as many as a dozen or more instances in these
baptismals where LASSINGs sponsored BURNETTs and vice
versa. Even one baptismal that I suspect may have strong
implications for my friend Hope:
Elizabeth, b. 11/19/1733, daughter of
the sponsors were Johannes Bornet
and Elisabeth, wife
baptised the same day:
Yzaak, b. 3/12/1733, son of
the sponsors were Yzaak LASSING
and Sara, wife
It seems that Yzaak Lassing and his wife and
Johannes BURNETT and his wife must have been
extremely close friends, but more likely, realatives,
a they named their children for each other and
sponsored them too.
Do any of you have an Elisabeth Lassing marrying a John
or Johannes BURNETT????
There are many many similar BURNETT and LASSING
associations, and I thought that somewhere along
the line someone must know about these family connections.
Hope, this may be your Issac BURNETT !!!!!!
I find, as you might expect, that the name is spelled
in a myriad-sp? of different was:
Here are some notes about the family that might
fit in with your family. These BURNETTs were very active
in the Lutheran Churches of the area, by the early 1700s.
I assume, though I am not certain, that they were German
from the start and had some German surname like
BURHEIT or perhaps the Paul PRUNET that Hank Jones
mentiones in his Palatines book, could have been the
progenitor of these BURNETTs. It is difficult for me
to imagine that a Scottish, or more likely, an English (BURNETT)
settler would have married into a Dutchess Co.
German family and started the line.
I know that there were at least two or three BURNETT brothers
from a Dutchess Co. or Ulster Co. family who were loyalists
during the Revolution and had their land confiscated after
the war. Two of them moved to Canada after the War and their
descendants gave their national origin as German in the 1870
census in Canada.
On a related matter, I feel strongly that this BURNETT fmaily is mine,
as my 6th great grandparents and their son (my 5th great grand)
are listed in the church baptismal book:
bapt. 3/22/1742 Jacob SIMON
son of Michael SIMON and
Berbel the sponsors were Jacob SIMON and Lea KOHLN
Jacob SIMON married Anna Pulver and their daughter married
Josiah BURNETT, ca 1788
They moved from Red Hook, Dutchess to Broome, Schoharie Co.
and back again, from 1788 to 1820.
If anyone has info on any of these families, I would very much like to share
with you. Thanks.
I'm looking for an Anna BATHRICK, born between 1740-1750. Does this fit
with anyone's data? I believe she might be the first wife of my Peter
Smith b. 1742 in Lyme, New London Co., CT. He was the son of Jonathan
Smith and Jane Lewis. Anna BATHRICK may have had a brother, Thomas
BATHRICK. I believe these Bathricks might have been from either
Columbia Co., NY or New London Co. CT.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I just joined the list this morning and I hope I am doing this right. I am
looking for Samuel L Cole. I have him in my old Family Bible as having been
born Feb 21, 1801 in Lebanon Springs, Columbia CO. NY but I have no death
date. I have his wife Cynthia Cole's Death date as April 26th, 1859 but not
the location. I also do not have her birtth date but I think it was Columbia
Co. That is literally all I know of them. I wonder if any one on the list
knows of them. I would be most appreciative of any information. I have a
lot I would share of their ancestors and their descendants. Also, can anyone
tell me who and where to write, for Columbia Co. vital Records. Thanks a lot.
