Dear Sally, The info onthe ' intersection' of these families in early
DEL. CO. is being collected for mailing to you. One letter of 8
smaller pages [of correspondence-sized paper of 2 pages back to
back-] was nearly hopeless to copy clearly as it was. Finally,I cut
those pages apart, and printed each page separately and 127% larger!
Not knowing I would be mailing these on, some
notes [in darker ink] by me are on the papers --done at the time I
copied them at the DEL. Co. Historical Museum 2 weeks ago.
The first information I emailed to you was from
a CHART ? apparently? in the same handwriting as the letter,etc. A
guess on my part. Since I sent you most of the info. on the chart,
or on the ROGERS and DAVIS info. now being prepared for mailing, I
am NOT copying the oversized chart.
I suggest you write to Delhi for those as they
have an oversized copy-machine.
Your Questions: I was born in Cortland,Cortland
County,NYS; went to high school and college in that county; then
married an Air Force careerman[SGT.]. We were a traveling, military
family from 1945 to 1963 when he retired in Ventura Co.,CA--where I
still live. We raised 5 childre, as Air Force children. My husband is
deceased. I went back to full-time teaching and have a cumulative
total of about 32 years of that-from K to 9th. grade-much at the 6th.
I have taught Research Methods for Genealogy here
about 5 1/2 years and still occasionally fill-in.
Sally, I have found that if we as researchers will
be more generous by putting our 'stuff' on-line at a website such as
Rootsweb or Gen-web--and NOT just do 'in private' requests for
information--then we are assisting MANY more researchers. I am ALWAYS
looking for the 'missing-pieces / brick-wall-answers ' on-line--just
hoping that someone, somewhere , will be able to assist.
The nicest thank-you I could wish for would be
that you post your material and perhaps also send it to Delaware
Co.Hist.. You see--people DO find out a lot--and then keep it only in
What a Missed-Opp[ortunity for us all!
Yours, Charlotte J.Sheldon
P.S. In my mailings, am including some internet 'seekings' about
Brabant,; ST John Rogers,the Martyr; and the Mayflower-ROGERS.
Interesting and I learned some good new-to-me 'stuff'. Not so sure it
will be of any connections for you. But, you can let me know. CJS
