Looking for parents and ancestors of Philip Link b. Columbia County ca1810;
died Rensselaer County May 9, 1880.
NY 1855 Census listed Philip as widower living in town of Schodack,
Rensselaer County--children Sylvester - age 16
Chesterman - age 14
Ann - age 8
Sylvester died Rensselaer County 1870.
Chesterman, my great grandfather was born in Chatham 7/5/1841 d. in
Poestenkill area in 1898.
Ann married Peleg Mason and lived in Poestenkill area.
Philip's first wife was Eda or Edith Rawlins.
Philip probably remarried since I have some mid- to late-1800 diaries
indicating that Chesterman had a brother Calvin and sister Jane. He also had
a brother William who may have been older and out of the household at time of
Philip's son Chesterman Link married Hannah E. Link and lived in Poestenkill,
