I am looking for information on the following:
JOHN E. STOLLIKER, b. abt 1866, possibly Claverack, NY
ANNA SHUFELT-1st marriage to COSCO PULVER--
2nd marriage to JOHN E. STOLLIKER
All the above were supposedly from Claverack, Kinderhook, and Taghkanic,
If at first you don't succeed, let someone else do it!
My Gr-grandmother was Anna Melissa Shufelt, from the Kinderhook, Claverack,
Mellenville, area, she was born in 1840. Another, Anna W. Shufelt, was
born March 18th, 1854. My Gr-grandmother married William Henry Chace, from
Hillsdale, I think (don't have all my notes handy), so she is not your Anna.
I don't have Anna W's marraige, so can't help there, except that my Anna and
Anna W. were related and I have lots of Shufelts from that area. If you
think this helps, please contact me. Sandi (Chace) Hutchins.

All messages that were sent to our mail list so far this year can be
easily searched. You can find any Surname or Word or Phrase (it could
be a first and last name) that was contained in either the subject line
or in the text of the message. Messages from past years are also
available for reviewing in this same manner.
In fact you can do the same thing for any list serviced by RootsWeb, any
place in this country or in the world. You just need to know the exact
name of the list. It is very easy to do. Here's how.
1) Go to: http://searches.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/listsearch.pl
You get: RootsWeb Mailing Lists -- Interactive Search
2) Type in the name of the list, such as NYCOLUMB, or NYRENSSE, or
DUTCH-COLONIES, or DENMARK, or the exact name of any other mailing list
serviced by RootsWeb (the "-L" is not necessary). For NY State, the
pattern I use is to put NY before the first six letters of the county
name. For a foreign country, use the entire name. No spaces are
allowed in the name. South Africa would have to be South-Africa. You
can access 33 countries in Europe.
3) Click on Submit Query
You get "Search the Archive of Messages for (list name appears here)
It contains a Query box.
4) Type in the surname (or word or phrase) that you want.
5) Select the year that you want searched. (It is here that you learn
what years are available for searching)
6) Click on Search.
You will get a list of every message that contains the information that
you submitted. If you then click on Full, you will be able to read the
entire message including heading.
For a surname, don't forget to try each separate spelling variation that
you think might have appeared in the messages.
Having access to mail list Archives is a VERY important genealogical
tool to have at your disposal. At this point, you are only limited by
your lack of knowledge of the names of all of the RootsWeb mail lists
available. So here is how you find those names.
Assuming that you want to know what mail lists exist for a particular
state, go to:
Cursor down a few lines to Regional Lists. Find North America (or any
other part of the world that is listed). Click on United States. Select
the State from the column at the left. A list appears containing all
RootsWeb mail lists in that state. Write down its exact name and do the
archive query mentioned above.
A FINAL NOTE. Since every message we send to our list is archived:
1) We should be cautious about saying anything that we would not want
to be preserved.
2) We should strive for accuracy in our details and instructions
because they may have an impact for years.
3) Private notes that don't have any lasting genealogical value should
be discouraged because of the amount of space they require for RootsWeb
to store them for our future use. When making a reply to one person's
question, ask yourself if several people on the list might benefit from
your answer. If not, then write to that person privately. Some mail
lists address replies to the entire list. It is not difficult to erase
the RootsWeb address and put in the person's private address.

Sue, (et all)
I have in my ancestry a Jonathan Chapman (1749 - 1827) who was the father of
an Olive Chapman (1782 - 1816) who married Isaac Rowland. This is my line.
In Jonathan's will, he mentions 5 other daughters (Cynthia, Rhodey, Ann,
Prudence, and Diantha).. He also mentions 3 sons (Richard, James B., and
Peter) Perhaps one of these could be the father of your Nathaniel?? He also
had another son Isaac Chapman who wasn't in the will. He died in 1811. I do
not know if this Isaac married, but if he had children, they were not
mentioned in Jonathon's will. Jonathan lived in the Chatham area. I see on
my map that New Lebanon is just east of Chatham. Hmmm!
There is also a William Chapman in Columbia Co. who died in 1818.. I have no
idea how he is connected. At the time I didn't write down if there were any
names in this will (wish I had now!), but I did manage to write down that he
was from Sharon, Litchfield Co. Ct.
Both of these wills are at the County Court House in Hudson. I didn't notice
any other wills for the name "Chapman" in early Columbia County.
Hope this helps...
There are probably more than a thousand Coons (and various related spellings
such as Kun, Kuhn etc.) in Columbia County. Can you narrow your Robert down
by date (i.e. 1700's? 1800's?) or town? Preferably both?
I would appreciate some advice on how to go about obtaining death
information on an ancestor who, according to the SSDI, probably died in
New Lebanon NY on 23 April 1998.
Most of my research is in the NYC area via the Municipal Archives, and I
do know that for NY State you deal with either Albany (which I am told
takes forever) or the local clerk. I have gone to the Columbia County
page and would like to know if its best to contact the New Lebanon
office/clerk for a death certificate or the county clerk in Hudson.
This is for my step-grandfather, and any advice from those who have
obtained information from either clerk would be appreciated. Technically
I suppose I wouldn't be able to get this certificate, but again, would
appreciate any advice.
Would also like to know what newspapers an obituary for him might have
been in. This person was "missing" from our family for many years, and
we have only now discovered him on the SSDI and are anxious to find out
where he died, is buried and any information we can.
Edwin BLOMGREN died 23 Apil 1998 according to the SSDI. I have obtained
his SS5 form to confirm this is the correct person.
Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Does anyone have a listing for the Flatbrook Cem. in Canaan? Thanks to a
helpful Town Clerk we have learned my husband's grandmother Mary Ellen
"Ella" Bates who was killed by a train Dec. 11, 1916 is buried in Flatbrook.
We were there Thursday during Hurricane Floyd's debut but it was raining so
hard we couldn't read stones. Any help would be much appreciated.
Also learned that Mary Ellen's parents were Edwin Tiffany and Nancy
Shaver....does this family sound familar to anyone? Thanks much for any

I'm trying to get a lead on my GGGrandmother, Julia A. Harrison. She was
born in 1837; her father's name was Randall? Harrison. I had assumed that
she was born in Albany Co., but I just found out that she was married in
Chatham, so I'm now wondering if her family was from the Chatham area.
When Julia Harrison was married, in 1852, to George Schlatter, the
ceremony was performed by a Rev. Bullter/Bullten/Bulther--does that name
ring any bells? Not sure what religion, but I'd sure like to know.
I am trying to verify who the parents of Anna Davis b.1850 are. She was married 30-Jun-1869 to Charles F. Ashley b.1843 at the Chatham Methodist Church. Anna is buried at the Chatham Rural Cem. with Abram Ashley her father-in-law. The census of Nassau county in 1850 lists an infant Anna in the household of John B. Davis. I beleive he was married to Sally Ann Lovejoy. Another clue is that a John B. Davis had property next to where Charles F. was brought up. Anyone have any info other than this? Thanks
