Arthur W Phillips
I'm unsure if Arthur W's last name is Phillips, difficulty reading signature.
My ancestor, Edward Seldon, was born in June of 1861, in either Oleans, the
city, or Orleans, the county. I have exhausted the city resources, so I am
now trying the county. He moved to Chicago in 1890. He died in 1925 in
Chicago, under the name Edward Sheldon. He changed it sometime between 1909
and 1920, after his divorce. He listed his parents as being from Canada and
England on 2 different census records. I have not found him in the 1910
census yet. I have no info on him besides. I have not found him yet on any
NY census, or any census from the 1800s.
I have checked a few web sites. but I would like to know if marriage or birth
records for this county go back to the 1860s. I did check the 1865 census
on-line, but he was not there. I do not know if he had any brothers or
sisters. Even though he had a grown daughter at the time, he died alone. I do
know he was in the IL National Guard in 1894. I have not heard from them.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
This is a copy of the abstract I received when we purchased our house in the
Town of Carlton, Orleans County, NY. I'm posting it here because I believe
it has genealogical value to those researching in this area. I have no
information on any of the people mentioned other than what I type in here.
What's here is the first two pages of the abstract. Because of its length
and not being sure if anyone is interested I'm including the names of all
mentioned. If the person you are interested in is not listed on these first
two pages let me know and I will type and send the documents where their

Two new things have added to the Orleans Genweb pages. Stu VanOrden has
linked his family history to the Family History Section. It is called the
VanOrden, Copeland, Altpeter, and Cruttenden Families", 1800-1980. Take a
look at it at this url
Also we have a new look-up thanks to Peggy Tiffany Isbell. It is a book
"The ROOTS of Coventry, Connecticut" by Messier and Aronson. Peggy tells
me there is a lot of info on the Root family. Anyone intersted in a

Any info appreciated. Thanks.
I just received the Abstract of Title for the home I purchased last January
in Carlton, Orleans, NY. I spoke to the Town Historian some time ago who
said the corner where our house is located used to be called Clark's Corners,
and that our house may be an original Clark house. How right she was!
The first is George E. Clark, by heirs to George R. Clark. The date is Sept.
It lists the heirs individually and whether or not they were married. Also
included for George R. Clark is his will. This is about as far into the
document I have been able to get. Over the weekend I will make a list of all
those listed and email it to the list.
If anyone has information on George E. Clark and when he originally built the
house on this property, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. Also,
if anyone is researching the Clarks and would like the information within
this document I would be more than glad to type it up and send it to you.
Thought the first article in this message might interest some of you.

head and shoulders.
THE VULCANIZER EXPLODED
What might have resulted in a serious accident occurred in A. S.

laboratory and had left the room but a short time before. Suddenly a
explosion was heard and it was found that the vulcanizer, which the
uses in the manufacture of teeth, had exploded. Part of the vulcanizer
penetrated the ceiling and nearly gone through the upper floor. Had
