Hello Fellow Listers
Does anyone know if there are early records for Protestant Churches in
Patterson From 1790 to 1820? If so Where would these records be located or
where could one write to obtain a copy of Baptismals?
Are there also Marriage, Birth & Death Records available
I am interested in contacting descendants of the following people in hopes
of obtaining information and/or pictures of these individuals:
Chester W. Merrick b. 1-26-1861 (looking for young pictures of these two)
Ida Frances Arnold Merrick b. 4-5-1863
David Chester Merrick b. 4-12-1883 (especially interested in a picture or
Libbie Arnold b. 9-1871
Charles Schafer (M. Libbie Arnold in 1886 and was born in Germany)
Leopold Schafer (son) b. 8-1897 Did they have a son named Charles? Are
there any Arnold or Schafer descendants still around Carmel?
Thanks, Judith Merrick Wise
I am looking for more information on Catherine Noxon Fletcher, buried in Patterson - B 1798, Died 1896. Is this the same Catherine Fletcher Cited in the 1870, 1880 census as living in the house of Eli Hoyt as a mother-in-law? Eli's Wife was named Mary, B about 1821. Is Mary indeed a daughter of Catherine and her Husband Cyrus Fletcher?
Who are Catherine's Parents and sibilings? I am interested in discussing the answers to these and other questions about Catherine's family. Please contact me if you may have an answer.
Thanks so much,

I am in need a genealogy angel. I believe my Crosby line of Washtenaw, MI
came from the Crosby line of Putnam, NY. Census have not worked Lemuel and
Ann married after the 1830 census and Lemuel dies before the 1840 census. I
think Lemuel died either on the way or after he is in MI.
In order to prove my Lemuel Crosby is the son of Tertullus Crosby I need to
establish this is where he originated from before going to MI. In order to
do that I need a marriage record of :
Lemuel Crosby and Ann ???? abt 1829-1830
Another approach could be baptism records for their children:
Ellen Jane Crosby b. 1831 NY
Samuel W. Crosby b. 1834 NY
William C. Crosby b. 1836 NY
[dates from census so may be one year off]
Or a look up in deeds to show Lemuel sold land just before they departed. If
I could get book and page number I can send for the document.
Any and all help will be so very very appreciated.
Thank you for your time
Anna went to MI with her first husband Lemuel Crosby and then he died and
she remarried to Richard Combs I have their marriage record. Ann Dies 11 Dec
1867 in York, Washtenaw, MI. Any comments welcome.

Searching for information about William S. RIDER who married in 1837 Delaware Co. OH to Ester ADAMS [b.1810 Putnam Co. NY -Vashti TOMPKINS' sister], He was mentioned in 1843 as one of the executors of his father in law, Samuel ADAMS. They had children Vashti and Charles RIDER. Not there in 1850. No trace found in any census though two separate family records reported the children.
There was a William S. RIDER, b.c.1800 in 1830 Putnam Co. census, married to Zillah (??SWIFT). They had 4 girls and a boy who died in 1832. They left in 1834. Whether the same William S. RIDER is unknown.
