Hi, does anyone have information about a child or young girl who was
murdered, we think in Albion, Orleans Co., New York.
We have no dates of this murder mystery.
My daughter saw or heard about it but didn't get all the particulars.
Just thought I would inquire.
Reply for Marc Rinehart:
I tried to send this off-list, but it bounced:
Thanks for replying. I'm afraid I don't have William or Lillie on my tree.

I need help in proving Caroline A Sturges, is the daughter of Aquilla Sturges. She was born in 1812 in Briston, Addison Co., Vermont and later moved to Barre, Orlean co. NY where she married Benjamin Franklin Holland Jan 2, 1827 or 1829. I have both dates for the year so it could be one or the other. I think a census record of 1820 would be what could help me but I have been unable to find this. I need this proof for DAR purposes. By 1830 she was married and probably would not have appeared in that years census under her father Aquilla and 1810 is too early because she was not born until 1812. His name could also be spelled "Aquila" and the last name could have been "Sturgis", although I have been generally using Sturges. She later moved to Michigan probably after 1838. Her death record in Michigan lists "parents unknown" in the cemetery record. I am certain she is his daughter but the DAR wants more documented proof. I am not certain where she lived in 1820!
, it could have been Vermont or New York State. I tend to believe it was New York State. A marriage record would also help, or an obituary if any of her siblings died in New York State. Of this I am not certain but I do know her siblings names and could give them to you if you think that would help. Perhaps church records could be of some use however I am not certain what church except that it would not have been Catholic.
Her siblings were : Nancy Sturges, Harriet Sturges, Mariah Sturges, Hiram Sturges, Helen Sturges, Lewis H. Sturges(He died in Michigan and lists his parents at Aquilla Sturges. The wife of Aquilla was Sarah (Little) Sturges. They also moved to Michigan after 1838 and are buried in Wayne Co. Michigan. You can E mail me at cejay(a)centurytel.net .
I have a Myron Gurney born 1828 in New York, I am pretty sure he is the son of Nathan Gurney born circa 1803 in Massachusetts and Harriet Carr born 1803 Knowlesville, Orleans County NY. Myron married Harriet Jane Root born Jan 1830 daughter of Levi Root born 1796 and Catherine Carr (Harriet Carrs sister), in 1848 in Cherry Creek, Chautauqua County NY and they lived there until his death in Sept 1854. They had two children, Alice born 1851 and Albert born 1853.
When Myron died, Harriet returned to Orleans County (she sold the saw mill in Chautauqua that they owned) to live close to her family. Her father and grandfather were dead and her Mother had remarried and moved to Michigan. Her Uncle Henry Root, Levi's brother, adopted Albert and raised him as a son, giving him the Root name. She kept Alice with her and they are found in Columbia County WI in 1860 with a new husband and family (she met Hugh Harper her new husband in Orleans County where his brother stayed).
My question is does any one know of Gurneys in the Orleans area in that time frame? I know that today there is a pub in downtown Albion names Gurneys but I don't know how long it has been there. I need to make the connection from Myron to Nathan and try to find Nathan in Massachusetts. Hopefully someone will know of this family. Nathan had a number of children and I can trace some of them but not him. He disappears after 1850 (only 47 at the time and was a miller).
Thanks for just reading this long message and thanks in advance if you can help, even just guide me to a place to find help. I have contacted Jean Gurney Rigler who had a Nathan Gurney born 1804 in Massachusetts and she has his history way back, but I need to make the connection.

PLACE WHERE HIS FATHER SETTLED TILL HIS DEATH IN 1875. HIS WIFE WAS
