Has anyone who is searching PERKINS, found the following?
PERKINS, Solomon, born in Massachusetts in abt. 1770-1774. Wife Huldah [born
in Connecticut]. Son Miles S. PERKINS, born abt. 1820, married Phoebe

My question: is Lyman PERKINS, born abt. 1815, also a son of Solomon and
Huldah? Lymon married Almeda BILL. Lyman Perkins is my great-great
I have just begun my search of this line - I think I have hit genealogy
Does anyone have access to 1810 census of Delaware County (Stamford)
that would do a lookup for me. Looking for Benjamin Puffer and wife
Nancy and two male children, Benjamin and William. Thanks.
Merry Christmas to One and All.
Just thought some of you would be interested in reading my article in the
current (WINTER) issue of
KAATSKILL LIFE magazine, on my ancestors, Jan Burhans and his
descendent, Edward Burhans of
Roxbury. It relates the Revoutationary Seertvice record of Burhans
during the years of the WAR from 1774 to 1781. Other names of early
settlers are cited of which may be of interest to many.
The article is on pages 94-96. Enjoy.

Working from the above information I have the following Baxter males born in
NY in 1898 in my database. If any of these are your father, give a shout
back and I can fill you in with what data I have.
Charles H. son of Azur, died 1972, married Agnes Heldron
Elbert son of Elsworth, died 1954, married Lillian Harrison
Howell son of George, died after 1923 in Texas, married Ethel Starks

i was wondering if you knew of any immediate decsendants of frank
scofield and madora holbert who would be interested in buying 'history'.
while flea marketing i came across a framed 12x14 photo, dress/cape and
a framed marriage certificate for them. the asking price is $125.00 for
the four pieces.
this is not my line, but i know i would be interested in them if they
were. yours is the only quick search i found with their names listed.
if you know of anyone, please forward this to them and i would be glad
to tell them where to find them.
The first thing you should consider is looking in the 1900 census for
people with the surname Baxter. Given that you know the date  of your
fathers birth, there is a high likelihood that the family would still be in
the same location in 1900.
The second thing to consider would be to get a copy of your dad's birth
certificate. That would help you determine more information about his parents
names & location.
Selecting one or the other of the above choices will really depend on
where you are located. If you are near a Mormon Family History Center they
should be able to order a copy of the Delaware County Census if that is your
choice-it should cost about $3 or $4- to rent the proper film. If you decide
to try to get the birth certificate, you can get that information from the
Town Clerk where he was born [if you know that] or from the New York State
Office of Vital Records in Albany. The cost of the birth cert is about $15 or
I live in Albany and go to the State Library from time to time; they have
an index of all birth certificates on file in New York State which provides a
registration number that can specifically identify the birth cert you want to
order. If you decide the birth cert is what you want, let me know and I will
see if I can be of some help.

I am searching for someone who can do some look-up's of some articles in the Delhi Gazette and the Delhi Republican newspapers. I have the dates in question, and I would be willing to reimburse your time, and copying and mailing expenses.
Happy Holidays to everyone on the list of one of the best genealogy sites on web!!

Hello Delaware County list:
I am always amazed at the locations of people interested in Delaware
County New York genealogy-that is why it is fun for those of us still living
in New York to try to help those whose ancestors moved on to new challenges.
Now, I have to request help from some kind soul living in [or at least
familiar with] California. One of my Delaware County Amos line went to
California in 1860-1870 era where he married and had children. He died in
1905-06, probably at Petaluma [Sonoma County]. Could someone currently living
in California please contact me off list and give some technical advice?
Thanks very much.
Happy Holidays to ALL!!!!!!!!

I have found the following in HARLEM by Ricker.
There is a Johannes Wynkoop on p. 698 who married Judy Bloodgood, or
Bloetgoet, as then written,She was born is 1665. There is nothing listed
about Moses Depuy or Maria Wyncoop.
The DeWitt's are referred to on page 148- "Matthys Jansen became a trader
on the Hudson, removed toFort Orange, and thence to Esopus, where he died
prior to 1663. That year, FEb 15, the deacons loaned 1000 GL. from his
estate. His widow, Margaret Hendricks, married Thomas Chambers, Lord of
the Manor of Fox Hall. Jansen had four children, viz, Jan, Matthys
Catharine, m. 1660, Jan Jansen , from Amersfoort, and Annede, who married,
1668, Sergt. Jan Hendricks Buur, alias Pearsen.
Jan Matthyssen, b. at Fort Orange, m. in 1667 , Madelaine, d. of
Matthew Blanchan, , was an elder of the Kingston church, and died between
1719 and 1724. He had Matthys, Thomas, Jan Hendrick, David, Margaret who
married Barent Burhans; Magdalene, m. Richard Brodhead; Sarah, m. Elias
Bunschoten; Catharine, m. John Crook, Jr., and Mary, who died early.
THese bore the name ofJansen, in English JOhnson. Jan took to the sea,
went to England, and in 1690 was thought to be dead. From the other sons
were the respectable Jansens of Ulster County, some of whom bore a
conspicuous part in the REvolution.
Matthys Matthyssen was made a captain in 1685, and later served
agains the French on the northern frontiew. He married Tietie, daughter
of Tjerck DeWitt, and issue Matthys, Tjerck, Nicholas, Thomas, Gerardus,
Hasuelt, Sarah, m. Matthew DuBois; Leah, who, with Hasuelt, removed to New
York, and Barbara, m. Peter Tappan. It was there 6 sons of Matthys who,
says an old manuscript, "changed their names of Matthyssen to Van Keuren:
and whence the numerous family so called."
The Kingston church would have been the Dutch Reformed CHurch. and the
Rochester in the other quote was Rochester township, which I think is
in Ulster county, It is not the city of Rochester.
I hope this is helpful. Louise
