Excuse me for butting in on your Emails, but I wonder if you could help us too? I'm
seeking more information about a Josiah STARR (1787-1876) who lived in Putnam Co. His
parents were Abijah STARR andMindwell Brush who are buried there in Patterson.
Records show that this Josiah married later in life in the 1860's but what I seek is
any evidence of an earlier marriage for him. In an earlier census, josiah has a younger
male in his household, then in 1850, the first year we get names of all family members,
he's living with a sister.
I am desc. from a n Eli STARR, born about 1820, who lived in Dutchess Co, Beekman Twnshp
and died there in 1883. I think this Josiah may have been his father, but can find no
good proof of this.
Can you help me?
Thanks, Norm morrison in Hendersonville, NC
