I hoped I made it clear that I am aware of the many different places and
where they are or were, that is Middletown, NY Orange Co. and the Town of
Middletown, Delaware Co.. I know where Newburgh is and where it was not.
I have a place in the Catskills in Margaretville for over 40 years and also
my 4th ggrandfather settled 1784 in the area where East Sidney is today. I
am quite aware of the history that things in these areas.
This still does not give us enough to go by with the many differences
stated in the LDS and other records to find more about Matthew Mott.
Many get tripped up on the Middletowns. It is remotely possible they were
in both which would complicate things a bit more.
This is why I am asking anyone that knows this family and has better data
for your help.
