Can someone tell me about the Holland Patent. On a marriage license I have
for Fenner Smith and Florence Sutton. Florence says she is born in Holland
Pattent, NY. It is spelled with two tt's on the license. Is this an actual
town or track of land. I don't recall seeing it. Maybe, I missed it.

Found a list of many people, presumably from Stamford who died in Gilboa,
Schoharie Co., NY. They were reinterred in Stamford & a couple in Roxbury.
The dates given copied from stones. If the stones weren't also removed this
may be the only record of Delaware Co. burials. See:
The grave of (William) Henry Hartwell, wife Ellen, who was reported having
died in Gilboa, was located in Stamford according to an email just
received. What cemetery?
After a bit of sleuthing around I discovered why several of this family were
reported as having died in Gilboa, Schoharie Co., NY . It seems that the
entire town of Gilboa including the cemeteries was flooded in 1925 for the
Schoharie Reservoir for the NYC water system. Many families affected. Names
and dates (just the years) given.
The Several Hartwells and their half brother Charles A. Northrup are listed
as having been removed to Stamford. But there is no removal listing for
Henry Hartwell and wife Hellen Tamsett though he was also listed as having
died in Gilboa.
There was a different Hartwell family, William L. Hartwell (1888-1963) and
wife Nellie (Utter) Hartwell (1876-1964) reportedly buried in Walton. Email
said nephew works for the cemetery there. Which one?
Looking for James Hartwell and wife Hannh (Dingee/Dingy) in an 1850 census. They were married about 1840. James Hartwell was described as "from Stamford" though not there in either the 1850 or 1880 census. Reputedly had 6 children by 1850 (?2 sets of twins?).
His son (William) Henry Hartwell and wife Ellen (Tamsett) listed in 1880 Stamford. Recent information is that they are buried in Stamford though the info I was originally sent gave vitals as d: 1919 in Gilboa, Schoharie Co., NY.
Appreciate any help you can give on this family (including Hannah's first marriage to ---Northrup.)
Someone did extensive research on this family. Does anyone know who?
Seeking info on Harry Pierson Young, wife. Alice B. Slack. Both Born
circa 1850, one known child, Charles Cortland Young, born Delaware(?)
Thank You, I greatly appreciate your assistance, have a good day! BIG
Seeking info on Isaac Lothrop born circa 1750's, son Freeman Lothrop.
Family went to what is now Monroe County NY prior to the war of 1812.
Freeman was a veteran of the war having enlisted in Ontario, Wayne
County NY. Families moved to Beaver Dam WI in 1840.
Thank You, I greatly appreciate your assistance, have a good day! BIG
ORR--I would appreciate info. on Hugh ORR who was chairman of the meeting
held on April 8,1817 to organize the town of Davenport. He may be the father
or uncle of my GGGrandfather James Orr since James' father in law Gaius
Northway who was also at this meeting was elected as one of the assessors.
Hi to all,
I've been putting plans together for next July, it'll be here before we know
it. I talked to the owners of the Margaretville Mountain Inn, which is about
30-40 minutes from Delhi over the mountain.
They have 7 rooms, which isn't much but there is also the Merrit Motel in
Margaretville with 10 rooms, and several other B&B's close by. They are very
willing to work with us. They hope to have their 2000sq. foot barn redone by
then to hold the gathering in. The verandah can hold 20 for meals plus the
The reason for this choice of location is it's beautiful, up on a mountain,
they are applying for Historical status on the National Historic Register,
this farm was the first commercially operated cauliflower farm in the US. I
used to go there as a child and in elementary school we went to hike the
wilderness with Mr. Cohen and always had refreshments on the 80' verandah.
I can arrange for a 20x40 tent if we need it and the chairs and tables as
well. These are the room rates:
1 room has a full bed $75 per night
2 rooms have queen size beds $ 85 per night
2 rooms have king size beds $95 per night
2 rooms are joined, shared bathroom, each room has 2 full beds and 1 twin.
$120 per night.
The other rooms have private baths, Yes this home is huge and beautiful! The
rates include a full gourmet breakfast, that satisfies my fussy taste, they
can put together a luncheon as well. We may be able to work out some sort of
dinner BBQ style if we're prepared enough ahead.
To put this together we need to have commitment from enough folks around
April/May as they book fast. Since we aren't an official group there is no
$$ to use to reserve the spaces, so we can't promise to far ahead. I had
thought of asking for $10-20 ahead from those who plan to come, but I don't
want to offend anyone either. My goal is to put together a Gathering where
we're all pretty much together in 1 space, except for sleep, if you can do
that after all the new stuff you learn!! I think I even have the sleeping
accommodations better thought out this time.
Please let me have your ideas and thoughts. I would like to have this
organized by the spring, so I can work on the guests I'd like to have come
and visit us. I'm not telling who yet, I'm still working on them, they want
a time and place first.
I'm looking for the parents of Ellen E. Samuels. She was born in
Delaware County in 1839. She married William C. Neild in 1858. They
had 5 children: Alice, Amila, Ellen, James, and William. The family
moved to Boone County, Iowa in the 1870s. Ellen died about 1912.
Thanks, Jerry Neild
You can buy your own photocopy of the book from the New England Historic
Genealogy Society. Go to their web site at www.nehgs.org/ click on
Sales, Table of Contents, PhotoDuplications, New York. Under Delaware
County you will find "History of Delaware County, New York 1880" for
$58. This is Munsell's History of Delaware County.
An index was compiled by Mary S. Briggs and was available for $10 at the
Delaware County Historical Association. The index is a must to do
searches. The number of names listed in this book is fantastic and
since the print is small it is difficult to find persons you are looking
for. It is even difficult when you know what page to look on using the
Hi- Does anyone know of a marriage between ELIZABETH GREGORY and
JAMES C. SMITH which took place in the early 1800's? Their daughter,
Rachel, was born in 1818 and her sister, Eliza was slightly older
Did any of the Gregory families in Delaware County have an Elizabeth
born around 1800 --give or take a few years?
This is a great group --I really enjoy all the information available.

Hope this doesn't end up a double hit,
I sent a letter to the list, but I don't have it in my mail so I'm wondering
if it even posted, this machine has a mind of it's own.
I have the lockwood file on my word processor if anyone wants a copy. I
won't go into long detail in case the other letter suddenly shows up on the
list. Email me if you want a copy
Happy first gust of fall to everyone,
I sure got cold fast!!
I went to the Roxbury Library History Room today, and copied the Lockwood
file, I've typed it into my word processor, if anyone wants a copy I can
attach a file, send me a note!! Names mentioned:
Lockwood, Patterson,Jenkins, Dent, Morse, Jennings, Benjamin,Stratton,
Andrus, Barnum,Taylor. These folks are relative to the Lockwoods. this is
the decendents of Abraham Lockwood and Elizabeth Patterson.
While there I had a great "Eureka" moment, I found an 1844-46 store ledger
from a store in the vega valley, as usual I found it as I was putting a box
away to go but there is mention of quite a few families, including Jenkins
Nathaniel and Nathan as well as Levi. It only gives names the date and what
it bought, for instance Nathan Jenkins bought 2 lbs of cotton batting on
March 17, 1845. While this info may not be earth shattering it confirms that
person was around during that time in that place. For those with elusive
Vega Roxbury ancestors this may help "Pin" them down. As always glad to do
lookups. They also have the old newspaper on microfische.
One of these roads have to lead to my Jerusha Jenkins, up in them hills
Still looking for Minnie Carl Stevens Ward too, I have pictures of her, so I
know she exhisted!! (Ha, Ha)
PS Don't forget the last weekend in July 2000 is "The Gathering" get it on
the work calendar before someone else takes those dates on you!!
