For several years I have been trying, unsucessfully, to research the William
Havens family & his wife, Theodosia Hunt, who lived in Spencertown in 1789;
Autsterlitz Twp in 1818. William Havens married Theodosia Hunt in Spencertown
in 1789 [she was his 2nd wife, 1st wife n/k]. Children of 2nd wife: Henry
H. aks Harry; Harriet H. aka "Hannah" - my line - and I think also Melissa b
about 1804, d bef. 1845; Henrietta b abt 1807, also d. before 1845 and
finally ? albinus H. b 1809, died 1833 in Bradford County, PA. I have not
been able to work my way back from William & Theodosia and have no idea of
where to begin to go backward, even after many years of researching them.
Does anyone have any information to help out? I have, in years past, done
the contact thing for Columbia County - historian, library, all that usual
stuff, so need something more concrete. I have checked out the web-site. No
money to hire professional researchers. No FHL nearby.
