Columbia County, NY. I am descended from Michael, Hiram, and Luther Hemerick,
all of Columbia County, NY. I never heard of Mr Strever. But I did hear
that Michael remarried a Mrs Hess after Eleanor Hemerick died 1853. I have
a photograph, from my father,Luther, with a genealogy written on the back.
It is probably a picture of either Eleanor or her mother, Eve Kilmer Dings.
If Hiram and Luther kept it, it was probably an ancestor. It mentions Eve
Kilmer born 1770, married Adam Dings, and their children, including Allie
(Eleanor). If Eleanor was born about 1800, she died young at 53. The photo
looks to be a lady of 90. Perhaps born 1770 - died about 1860. and dear
to Hiram, born about 1850. I believe the genealogy on the back of the photo
was copied out of a bible.
