I suspect I may also have a connection to the Lester name. It was the middle
name of both my father and his first son (my half-brother). They both hated
the name (I don't mean to offend those of you who have it!), which leads me
to believe neither one knew where it came from. My father's maternal side was
from the Delaware Co. area (Hancock, Colchester). My father's maternal
father's name was Col. Albert Gregory Miller, whose mother was Fatina Gregory
(Fatina's father was Daniel Gregory, b. 1778). I have found a Gregory-Lester
connection on FamilySearch's IGI. I have had correspondence with a man whose
first name is Lester, who still lives in Delaware Co., who has been confirmed
as related to me. I would also be interested to corresond with others who
think they may be connected to Lester-Gregory-Miller also. "Gee" and "Parks"
and "Hawley" are other prominent names associated with these lines. I would
like to hear from anyone who thinks they may have a connection to any of
these names. Sherry Steele (Seattle)
A researcher recently sent me several pages from a transcription of
baptismal records from the Deposit Presbyterian Church. The baptisms took
place in the first half of the 19th century. Are the original records
extant? And/or were other records besides baptisms transcribed? I hope to
find a record for the marriage of Samuel Hamblet to Anna Graves or Annie Van
Curen (or anyone else) between abt. 1820 and 1825. Samuel, son of Samuel
and Naomi (Glover) Hamblet, was born abt. 1802, and his son, Samuel Glover
Hamblet was born abt. 1825. The name "Annie Van Curen" is from family
memory and appears to be incorrect, but the question lingers. A marriage
record would be a wonderful find. Thanks for any help.

susan--I am researching LESTER family--im afraid i dont have anything
regarding RICHARDS or STRICKLAND families, nor anything about Christina
LESTER. But there were many LESTERs from New London Ct area, from my
experience regarding migration from Ct it was a general westward
migration--some going more north into what would be Cayuga county NY
while others into Ulster and Delaware counties and also into Northeast
Good Luck--David Lester in NJ
I am seeking information about Nehemiah Richards or the Richards family
On 20 November 1810 Joshua Strickland and Anna, his wife of Meredith,
Delaware County, New York, sold to Silas Richards and Mary his wife, of
Waterford, all rights as heirs at law in our honored father Nehemiah
Richards late of Waterford. Silas Richards was said to be Anna's brother.
Joshua and Anna seem to have moved from CT to NY. Joshua's wife is said to
be Anna Richards b poss 29 Jan year 1777? d 16 Feb 1852 Meredith, Delaware
County, New York.
I have traced the Stricklands back to Waterford, New London Connecticut and
received information that Anna's father was Nehemiah Richards and her mother
was Cristina Lester. This is not well documented.
I am trying to nail down this Richards family. I believe the Nehemiah
listed in Walton and or Meredith about 1800 is either Anna's brother
or her father.
Since the Stricklands moved from CT to NY I believe it was because Anna's
family or some member moved there, but the Richards family may have started
in CT too.
I am unfamiliar with the migration patterns from CT to NY during this time
A Nehemiah Richards had property on the Southeast side of the river around
Walton in 1802 and there is a Richards listed as being qualified as a juror.

I am desperately searching for any information on the Van Wagner line. I
don't have much information other than Clarence VAN WAGNER lived in Walton,
Delaware County, NY. He married "Georgie" or "Georgia" WASHBURN. She brough
a son with her when she married whose name is Frank HAMMOND. Clarence and
Georgia had 2 children; Margaret and William. Any help would be greatly
I am researching the two Laidlaw (Thomas who married Margaret stewart; Robert who maried Margaret Grieve) families of Delaware County. I was wondering if Thomas and Robert were related. Both of these Laidlaw families tie into my Tweedie family.
William R. Laidlaw who married Elizabeth B. Tweedie is the Great-grandson of Thomas Laidlaw.
Clifford Foreman who married William R. and Elizabeth B. (Tweedie) Laidlaw's daughter Bernice Laidlaw is the ggg-grandson of Robert Laidlaw.
Thank you for your time.

A Genealogist's Christmas Eve
by Sandra Devlin
'Twas the night before Christmas and inside my house Little was
stirring, except my computer mouse. Our descendants were nestled all
snug in their beds, While visions of ancestors danced in their heads.
So I at my laptop, near trusty old printer Put the finishing touches to
the project of winter, The gift I had promised for under the tree A
product of love, the family genealogy.
My table with clutter galore was aspread with pedigree charts of the
living and dead; old yellowed photos, letters of yore,
wills and diaries chronicling days from before.
While others bought gifts at Wall-Mart or Sears, I'd spent my time
searching birth dates and years. No need for ribbons or fancy gift
wrappings, This gift had a way of transcending the trappings.
While surveying the charts with one final proof, I must have missed the
sound on the roof. For what to my wondering eyes did appear, But the
jolly old elf, replete in his gear.
Searching my face, old Santa could sense My Christmas spirit was
extremely intense. He spied my research on the table spread out, "A
genealogist!" he exclaimed, "that removes any doubt."
As I climbed up the stairs feeling quite in the pink, I looked back at
Santa and shared a sly wink. For he and I know that the gift of oneself,
Beats anything bought from a department store shelf.
Merry Christmas to All.........

A David A. DELAMATER was in the 1850 Census, Middletown, Delaware Co., NY.
He had wife Jane and children Ann, Abram, Clarissa(?), John and Cornelius.
David would have been born about 1795. I am sure this is the same David A.
Delamater who was in the 1840 Census, for Shandaken, Ulster Co.
An Abm. Delamater was living next to David in the 1840 Ulster Census. This
Abm. was between 60 and 70 years of age in 1840. I think he was the Abraham
D. Delamater (Delameter) Jr. born about May 1773 and who died in 1861 at the
age of 87 in Eaton Co., MI. Abraham D. Delamater was living with his dau.
Elizabeth (Delamater) Roberts who was from Middletown, Delaware Co., NY.
Elizabeth was born about 1816.
Looking for anyone who has information on this Delamater family of
I am looking to see if Elizabeth Kilpatrick (daughter of William and Mary Ann [Hodge] Kilpatrick) is the same Elizabeth Kilpatrick that married Patrick Sanderson Arbuckle (son of Thomas and Jane [Sanderson] Arbuckle).
Thank you for your time.

I believe Daniel might have been a Jr. or even a third but can't seem to get

the Lyon family. Unfortunately, other counties don't seem to have a group of
people like this to turn to. I'm hoping someone out there might have stumbled
across some information in their quests. I can't find anything on Rodem Segar
except his grave and his name on Mary Segar Griffin's death certificate. Any
Segar information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks to all.

I do not have records for all veterans but I have the two volume set (books)
of NY in the Revolution which details New York's veterans , these volumes
have an index and then detail the regiments of all known veterans. A later
fire destroyed most of the original papers and muster rolls.
For the last two years I have been working on the Revolutionary veterans of
Delaware county, showing those who lived for some time in the county and
moved on or those that finished out their years there. This work is not
done so it has not been published.
Will look up any name in either or both of the above that you have that
falls into either volume.
Good luck with your search,

If she died in 1892, did you get her death certificate? That might confirm her parents' names, etc. Also suggest you look for old newspaper clippings for a possible obituary( there are many old local newspapers on microfilm)? How about Church records? Cemetery records? just some thoughts.

Greetings to the list!
I still haven't figured out my Jerusha Jenkins who married Thomas Cole. She
was born in the 1790's in Griffins Corners. In the 1850 census there is a
John Jenkins in Roxbury who has a daughter Jerusha- he is the right age to
have been my Jerusha's brother, with in a couple years of age. My Jerusha
named her son John. Then one of Johns daughters named their daughter Jerusha
Jerusha and Thomas are grandparents of Dewitt Cole who is in Munsells
biographical review of del co. The bio has Jerusha coming here with thomas,
which we feel is incorrect. She is part of the Jenkins line. One cousin
said they think Jerusha's mother was a Redmond-something they found in ulster
co led them to that conclusion. I still haven't found anything.
My Jerusha died dec 14 1892 in margaretville, at johns home, she was 99.
thomas died in 1874/9-before records, munsell said he was 86. They were both
buried in griffins corners.
1850 middletown censusThomas and Jerusha had:
Emeline age 22
John age 18
Cynthia age 15
Hannah age 14
Harrison age 12
william age 6
Solomon age 26
Emeline age 26
Abraham age 3
Charles age 2
Solomon is their son who must have been living in the house with his wife and
children. Emeline Solomon's wife was Emeline Gray.
There is also a Betsy, which according to Munsell married George Osterhoudt.
There was also a Mary who married Ephraim Isham.
There is a ton of info from here on out, but Thomas and Jerusha are still
mysteries. Anyone have any clues?
