I have just started to research the BROWN line of my family. I am a
novice at genealogy so any help would be greatly appreciated.
My G-G-G-Grandmother was SARAH BROWN, b. 21Apr1799 in (possibly)
New Paltz, Ulster Co., New York. Sarah's mother's name was POLLY
name unknown). I do not know her father's name. Sarah died 19May1898
Hamden, Delaware Co., New York.
Sarah married THEODORE SIGNOR, b. 16Jul1794, d.27Dec1884, Hamden,
Delaware Co., NY. Sarah and Theodore had several ch., including Ezra
N., William and/or Willard, Philander and my G-G-Grandmother URSULA
SIGNOR, b. 1Jan1832, d. unk. On 12 Apr 1850, Ursula married
NORTHROPE PORTER BRANT, b.13 Jan 1822, d. 6 Feb 1896.(son of Roswell M.
Abigail GOODRICH). [Note: Roswell's 2nd wife was Elizabeth Yendes and
both of them are buried in the small private cemetary on Route 10, just
north of what I believe is a remodeling of the old Yendes Estate, along
with the construction of new horse barns.]
Ursula and Northrope had 9 ch: Ethel Bertha Brant (my
G-Grandmother), Juliette Brant (m.1-Frank KEENE; 2-John MONTEITH),
Ellsworth Elmer Brant (m. Lucy Priscilla JAMES), Sarah E. Brant (m.
Arthur BAGLEY), Theodore S. Brant (m. Lura KETCHUM), George Brant,
MaryEtte Brant (m. John MAC DONALD), Frankie Brant (m. Mina MARRIOTT)
and Porter R. Brant (m. Syddie [Lydia?] Brant).
Ethel Bertha BRANT m.23 Nov. 1892 George G. JAMES in Hamden or
DeLancey, Delaware Co., NY. They had 8 children, including my
Grandfather, Archie George JAMES, who was a dairy farmer and carpenter
in DeLancey, Tn. Hamden, Delaware Co., NY, throughout his life.
I have also recently learned that Theodorus SIGNOR was a descendant
of Palatine emigrants (1709 to NYC) Johannes SIEGNER(aka
SICKNER/SIGNER) and ANNA APPLONIA BOHM (Boeh/Boom/Baam). The
"Siegner's" settled in Duchess Co., NY, until a cattle buying trip
brought them in contact with the TERRY'S of Hamden, Delaware Co., NY
around 1790 when the families intermarried..
The bottom line is that I have absolutely no information on SARAH
BROWN, and am not sure how to proceed with my research. If anyone has
any information or ideas, I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance.
Rosemary G. Roberts.

"Hi there Rosemary G. Roberts;
Read your posting on the Delaware County list regarding Sarah Brown.
i do not have her, one of the people in your line may connect with some
Delaware County folks- specifically, Juliette Brant, second marriage to
Monteith. Please email me privately so that we can compare notes.
Incidentally, am I correct to assume that your parent is either Maggie,
or Doris? J. Jack. DA Class of 51"
I am Doris' oldest daughter ( of three). My g-grandmother's [Ursula
Brant] sister, Juliette Brant was married 2nd to John Monteith of
Walton. I have a few deeds and other documents of his. Please get back
to me and I apologize for responding so belatedly, but the whole
computer has been on the fritz. Hope to "talk" to you soon. .

Sorry for the delay . . .
Searching for my mother's ancestral parents and their families as they
migrated into New York (c.1770), through Delaware & Schoharie Counties
(c.1803), NY to Hillsdale & Lenawee (c.1823) Co., MI. Most of my data
is from census, microfilmed church records and biographical sketches and
regenerated family histories. So I have a start. Now that I am just
learning about documenting and verifying, the chase is on! Relatives are
passing on and ignorants are discarding historical documents faster than
the aspiring genealogist can get to them.
Researching: Getter / Goetter (two lines because Getter md Getter
(documented)), Gilbert, Allis, Burk (Burke), Perham, Vail / Vails, Van
As soon as I can get to it, I'll enter the rest of my names into the
Roots Surname List so that those interested can e-mail me directly.
My wife and I have been helping to digitize the Biographical Review. We
felt some ergency to get on with it. Our first ten pages (pp151-165),
yielded valuable info for both of our families. Cann't wait to see some

There is an excellent genealogy of the Bidwells in Boston
at the NEHGS. "Bidwell Family History - 1587-1982"
compiled by Joan J. Bidwell, for and in the interest of
the Bidwell Family Association. I believe there is a
copy at NYS Library.
In the "Directory of Family Associations" by Elizabeth
Petty Bentley Bentley, it lists a Bidwell Association:
Bidwell Family Association, Inc.
6586 Fields Ertel Road
Cincinnati, OH 45241
Faith B. Heath, Newsletter Editor and Secretary
Publishing "Bidwell Family Association Newsletter"
The Bidwell Genealogy includes Bidwells in and around
Delaware County right up to the 1980's. My cousin has
Bidwells which are in and around Trout Creek. Jacob
Bidwell was noted as being the 1st permanent white
settler of Sidney Center, Delaware, NY. They are all
buried in Highland Cemetery there.
Would love to have a copy of the passage on Peleg. Connecting him to a
father has been a problem.
I have just sent you copies of the pictures of the OSB Church where William
A Warren was pastor.
Love your URL. I couldn't get along without duct tape.
