Thanks for the offer, Libby. I would appreciate a lookup. My ancestor is Thomas Burgess,
whose father Matthias owned land in lot 11 of the Oblong. Thomas served in the militia in
1763 and moved to Ulster county around 1765. But he moved back to Southeast and is on the
tax rolls about 1775-79. I found his service records in Dutchess records but have never
located a grave. He died in 1786, but the probate was in the Southern District of New
York, and I can't be sure exactly where he died.
