Subject: [NYDELAWA-L] NY Militia info
Noticed someone asking about info about the NY Militia.
If you can find the "Compendium of the War of the Rebellion" by Dyer it has
information about the different regiments, including a Regimental Index,
Regimental Histories & Battles & Campaigns. There is also another series
called "Putnams Record of the Rebellion" which has a lot of information.
I found these at the library at Oklahoma State University, so imagine that
most University Libraries would have copies.
If you are unable to find these books, I'll be happy to look them up, the
time I go to Stillwater,if you will send me what you want. It may be some
time before I go to the campus. I photo copied the pages that had the info I
wanted. At that time they only charged .05 a page.
The info about the battles that my g-grandfather was involved in was very
Be happy to help.
Hello to every one!
I have a question.
Is there a seperate census index book for New York City and surrounding areas, for the year 1860?
I am looking for a Absolam Hunt, A. Hunt, and or Absol Hunt that should have been in the New York City area at that time.
The 1860 Census book for the State of New York does not have them, and I notice there are no Hunts listed in those areas.
Thank you so much for your time and trouble.
I was at Fenton Library in James town amd remember there were a few questions about the Ball family .
Clinton Ball b abt. 1819, father of Jasper Ball b. abt 1856, Father of Henry Durrell Ball b. 9/25/1887, Father of Lucille Desiree Ball b/ 8/6/1911.
I hope this helps.
Here is what I have on my Delameters. It was a handwritten copy of my
greatgreat grandfathers'. You may have all of this but maybe something will
help you too!
Claude LaMaitre was the ancestor of all who inherited the name of Delameter
in this country, regardless of the various ways of spelling it. He was a
native of Richebourg in Artos, France and sprang from an old family in Picordy
originally from Brittany. On April 24, 1625 he married at Amsterdam, Holland,
Hester, a daughter of Pierre DuBois of that city, tho late of Canterbury
England, where Hester was born. They were all Huguenots, who had fled from
France on account of religious persecution and to save their lives after the
confiscation of their estates.
LaMaitre and his bride came to America along with many others from Holland
and settled at Flatbush called (Midmont) Long Island, NY. From 1652 to 1662
they had 6 children. The second, Abraham, born in 1656 being our (Russell)
ancestor. He moved to Kingston, Ulster, NY about 1680 where he married
Celeste, daughter of Cornelius Vernoie, June 17, 1682. He was a magistrate
and elder and prominent citizen of Kingston.
Seven children were born to them, the youngest, Abraham, born September 28,
1707 being our ancestor. He married Rachel Low, his second wife, on May 30,
1730. They had 5 children, the fifth, Johannes (John) being our ancestor. He
also had four children by his third wife, Mrs. Sarah Vaugesbeck Chambea.
John was born at Kingston, NY on April 20, 1747 and married Elizabeth Brink
in 1777 and died in 1800. He was a tailor by trade and a drummer in the
Revolutionary War. They had eight children, Rachel, the second, being our
ancestor (and the d Jas. C. Russell and the fourth, Mary, married Alexander
Eliza Ann had nine children: Matthew, William, Andrew, Rachel, James,
Robert, Elizabeth, <argaret and John. She died at the age of 71.
Please remember that this was passed down for a few generations and I have yet
to prove all of this!
There were at least two other newspapers published in Delhi during the
latter half of the 1800s (the Express and the Republican). I have found
death notices in the Republican that were not in the Gazette and vice versa.
I see Mary Dumond in your posting.
I have Mary E. Dumond wife of Egnos Dumond Reynolds.. she born April
16th, 1847..... died Nov 25th, 1890. I have no children listed for this
I have as the mother of Egnos D. Reynolds one Rachel Dumond born May
12th, 1815 and died March 28th, 1870. Her husband, Egnos' father was
I have one more Dumond lady. Jane Ann Dumond. Born 1813, no death date.
Wife to William S. Reynolds.
I have been trying (quickly and unsuccessfully) to see what the
relationship is between Egnos and William... haven't figured it out
I have absolutely nothing tying any of these Dumond women together....
Hope it helps.. and of course if you can fill any gaps.... :-))
That's all I have until Wed night when I can get back to FHC.
Personal question - does anyone have any ideas as to why my GADDIS family
would not be listed here. As I'm getting your names I'm scanning the pages
for other family members that may have died and mention - daughter of, etc.
- and have seen nothing.
They were farmers as were a lot of the other families here that I've seen
on the census. They didn't seem to be too poor to afford obituaries from
the real estate values, etc on census'.
Any other reasons anyone can think of that they wouldn't have had obits.
(I know a Joseph GADDIS is buried in Gilchrist Cemetery in Kortright, died
1863. And a half dozen or so others. Some of the family went to Illinois,
but not these particular people that I've found yet (that is!!!)
Anyway, would be open to suggestions from anyone.

Does anyone know anything of a John and Margaret WHITE family living in
Kortright, NY in 1870? He was a 38 year old farmer and she was 29, keeping
house. They had children Alice, aged 7; Charles, aged 4; Willie, aged 2;
and Susie, age 1.
I believe one of my relatives (Helen GADDIS) was a hired girl living with
them after her father had passed away. Or maybe just happened to be there
the day of the census, because she is also listed as living with her
mother. Or there are two Helen GADDIS'.
Any help appreciated. TIA.
As I'm going through my census copies I have I've been finding some of the
surnames I had been searching for people for on the Delhi death indexes.
These are only people listed on the same page as my GADDIS'. I don't have
