An update on information I have found out about John Robson, possible
father of Henry Robson, born 1805 in England, living in Bovina,
Delaware Co, NY until 1835. Henry named his 1st two children John and
Christa, the 2nd two after his wife's parents.
A new find, a John Robson and a Christiana Robson were on a list of all
former members of the old Presbyterian Church of Bovina Center, and
were listed as not having died but left the church for other reasons.
Much of the other records of this church were not legible. The John
Robson on the 1820 census of Bovina would have been born before 1775
and he had another son.
For unknown reasons Henry's daughters, Christa and Rachel, did not move
to Michigan in 1835 with the family. Rachel then lived with her Aunt
Rachel Brown Mabel but there is no record of what happened to Christa.
I'm hoping someone out there has some information on the Robson's that
may help me prove if John and Christiana were Henry's parents and maybe
what happened to Christa.
Happy New Year to you all and may you have many successful 'finds' in
the coming year.
Am still trying to sort out all the children. I'm certain of Catharine,
Henrietta, and William. I think it's likely there was a James also because
Catharine's home, as listed on the marriage information, was Erin. James was an
Erin resident also but I don't know where William and James went. Catharine and
Henrietta married and stayed in Chemung. Henrietta married another Delaware
Co. descendant who relocated to Chemung: William S. Barlow, son of James H.
P.S. You and I just discussed my Joslins and Manchesters!
The Stewart clan probably showed up about the same time. The bunch that
connected with my Cooks in Colchester town were descendant of Elam b abt 1786.
Did your Campbells stay in Chemung County or move on, and where?

Anyone attempting to reach me during the past 6 weeks at joanduffy(a)earthlink.net please be advised that I am now at the following address, joanduffy(a)netzero.com. I am currently researching the GAVITT; REYNOLDS (Rundles) an SIGNOR surnames, the first two mainly in Delaware County however, the Signor surname covers numerous states, from the east coast to the Western shores. Would appreciate any contact with any families related to the above surnames and willing o exchange info on what I have on file.
Wishing each and everyone, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy and fruitful New Year, especially in your research.
PS; Joyce did you get the MSG I sent you at your address as twice it can back, however the third time it appeared to get thru. Thanks for your assistance.
I am looking for where Lewis JUDSON (b.22.Jan.1780 d.17.Feb.1829) maybe buried and looking for his probate records. He reportedly lived in the Madison, Otsego, and Delaware County area circa 1824-1829.
Lewis Judson was the son of Nathaniel Judson & Rhoda HALL, both of Newtown CT. Lewis was the father of Lewis Hubbell JUDSON (b.6.Aug.1809). Lewis Judson m. Sally HUBBELL in 1804.
Lewis Judson reportedly died in Otsego County, but we have not yet been able to find where he may be buried in that county.
I would appreciate any information that would point me in the right direction for my next field trip to the east coast.

And your guess is correct, at the Oneonta end most of old folks called it
the Stamford road as Stamford was bigger than Harpersfield. It is also
called State Route 23 and was one of the early roads to be paved. Thus in
some sections there is the "old Stamford road".
The road of course goes mostly east into Schoharie county thru Stamford but
I will point out the towns from Harpersfield west to West Harpersfield,
North Kortright, Sturgis Corner, Butts Corner, Davenport Center, Davenport,
Pindars Corner and finally goes into Otsego County and Oneonta.....
The Court House in Delhi and the Chamber of Commerce both had out Del. Co.
maps at no charge, I have a few older ones that help me out now and then.
If needed let me know and will send you the names of the roads around
A very Merry Christmas to all who read this,
