Do you know how I might get a copy of this book? I would be very interested
as my mother's family is from Silver Springs, where her brother still lives on
the old family farm.

I just called Heart of Lakes Publishing Co. at Interlaken NY (607-532-4997),
and they do have copies of "History of Wyoming County" for sale at $50.00. I
just ordered mine, so I'll be prepared with author, publisher, date and page
number for DAR.
You might want to forward this to the Wyoming list.
Thanks again for all your help.
Seeking any information about the families GALLOWAY AND REDDIN.
Have very limited information as follows:
JOHN CHILDS GALLOWAY married MARY E. (OR MAMIE?) REDDIN, don't know where or
when, but birthplace of Mary seems to be Arcade, NY.
It is possible they married at Loup City or Lincoln, Nebraska.
Their first child was born in 1899, at Loup City, Ne.
Any information about any members of these families will be most appreciated.
I am so exited to be able to HELP someone!
According to the book "The History of Wyoming County" , page 303,
Nehemiah Brown, Sr. was born in Tyringham, MA, 28 Sep 1796, removed to
Onondaga County, NY, in 1807, and [as of 1880] still lived in Gainesville,
Wyoming Co. He was married in 1819 to Ursula JEMISON, of Tyringham, MA. She
was born 26 Mar 1800 and died in Gainesville, 22 Mar 1867. Their son,
Nehemiah, Jr. was born in Gainesville, 15 July 1836. He was engaged in
farming, teaching, cheesemaking, etc., until the spring of 1876, when he
located on his [present] farm. He was married 21 Oct 1861 to Sarah A. Wilder
of Farmersville, Cattaraugus Co., where she was born 11 Mar 1839.
My family includes Browns, Woods, Thayers and Days, all originating in Mass,
and moving to the Gainesville area. I believe I have copies of census
records with Nehemiah Brown listed, but will have to dig... I hope the above
helps. It's a GREAT book for anyone who has ancestors from Wyoming County!

1833 (Wyoming County) -The Surrogate Court selected Jeduthan BUTLER as
custodial guardian of Elizabeth Desire LAMB for a time. Apparently Lucretia
LAMB who had disappeared after Isaac's death,returned at a later time and
the court gave her back custody . There was some court action concerning
monies from Desire's trust and the court rendered a judgement against Mr.
Butler as a result.
Isaac LAMB, b. 17 Aug., 1769, of Northeast Dutchess County, NY. wife, Martha
B., b. 22 Sep., 1769, believed to be living in Dutchess County in 1790.
Later removed to Burlington, Otsego County sometime around 1793-1794. Otsego
Co. Land Deeds shows that Isaac purchased land in Burlington on 8 April,
1797 The transaction was witnessed & signed by Nathan LEWIS on 4 October of
that same year and signed by Isaac Lamb.
Isaac and his family moved farther west into Wyoming County, then part of
Genesee County, to Sheldon. They settled near Orangeville in the then small
village of Johnsonburg, part of Orangeville. Genesee County Land Deeds,
recorded in 1810, shows Isaac purchased land there. The village was named
after George JOHNSON who caused the first post office to be established
there. Isaac built the first frame house in Johnsonburg. At that time there
were only five log houses and a shanty. His wife, Martha, died on 16
October, 1828 and was buried on the family farm. In 1830, Isaac opened up a
half acre of land where Martha had been buried to the public for burial.
That same year, most of the bodies in the old Orangeville graveyard were
transferred to this new burial ground, named Johnsonburg Cemetery.
After Martha died, Isaac remarried a Miss Lucretia ( ). One child was
born from this union (Desire LAMB).
Isaac died on 20 March, 1833 and was buried in Johnsonburg Cemetery.
Lucretia disappeared. The surrogate court selected Jedutha BULTER as
Guardian (apparently a friend of Isaac's..?)
CHILDREN of Isaac and Martha:
>Desiah LAMB., 1790, Dutchess Co., NY
>Sylvanus LAMB , b. 1791, Dutchess Co., NY.
>James LAMB, b. 21 Jul., 1794, Burlington, Otsego Co., NY.

CHILDREN from 2nd marriage to Lucretia:
Elizabeth Desire LAMB, b. 19 Dec. 1829, Genesee County, NY.(now in Wyoming
>>James LAMB ( # 3) married Miss Charlotte Ann LEWIS, b. 1797 in Allegheny,
NY., daughter of Elnathan Lewis and Charity CASWELL, of Bennington Hill, NY.
The Lewis family had come from Voluntown, CT. and eventually settled at
Bennington Hill, Genesee County (later in Wyoming County), NY, according to
family records. We don't know exactly when the Lewises moved to Bennington,
NY. from Connecticut.
(They are related to the afore mentioned Nathan Lewis who witnessed the
land transaction in Burlington, NY.)
James and Charlotte supposedly were married at a place called "Bennington
Hill", but I have not been able to find any record of them at Bennington
Hill, Genesee County, NY.
Some of Charlotte Lewis's brothers and Uncles are
buried at the Johnsonburg Cemetery near Sheldon, NY., but not her parents.
According to family stories and records, James Lamb was killed while working
on the Erie Canal after 1832, but letters have been found dated after June
1833 that were written by him. Have not been able to find any obituary
notice nor cemetery record pertaining to James' death.
In 1840, Charlotte remarried a Melagar PERRY and farmed out their boys to
families and kept the girls.
There are PERRYs who are related to the WILLIAMS in and around the
Johnsonburg community (perhaps founders of nearby Perry , NY.?) James LAMB'S
youngest sister, Desiah LAMB married Amon WILLIAMS. They both died on the
same day Oct. 22, 1813, possibly victims of the 1813 Epidemic that swept
through western New York and began in Perry, NY. with a Mr. Gates. Deaths
occurred in 3-days time from first symptom.
Children of James LAMB & Charlotte Ann LEWIS: Vanessa, Osmer, Marinda and
