I'm new to your list and to Wyoming County. Didn't even know there WAS
a Wyoming County and I was raised in Dutchess (but haven't lived there
since the late 50s)!
My interest centers on two families who intermarried: Elijah Cutting b
1766 was an early landowner through purchases in 1803 (Middlebury) &
1804 (Warsaw) from the Holland Company. He came to Wyoming County from
Addison County, VT where he was born. His brother Jonas b 1782 also
went to Wyoming and is listed as buying Warsaw property in 1803 as well.
Elijah & Betsey Hale Cutting m in VT; they had 8 ch, prob 7 b in
Harris b 1803
Loceba (a dau) b 1805
Mary b 1807
Harley Parker b 1810 (my gggrandfather)
Samantha b 1813
Zerelda b 1816
Lucy b 1819
Jonas Cutting m Lovina Fargo, in Warsaw in 1807; they had 5 ch, all b in
David Parker b 1809, d 1843 (buried Warsaw Pioneer Cem)
Chauncey Z. b 1811
Martha Lovina b 1816, d 1829 (buried Warsaw Pioneer Cem)
Jerome B. b 1818
Marquis Fargo b 1825
I don't know who Lovina's parents were, though I'm guessing Nehemiah
Fargo and his wife, Mary Chapman.
I'm hoping some of you are either familiar with these families or have
resources at hand which might refer to them.

I am searching for any info on Milo Wilson born 9 Feb. 1856 in Castille,
Wyoming Co. He is listed in the Kankakee, Illinois 1860 census as born
in Ohio. His marriage record lists his parents as Granger Wilson and
Cora E. Swet/Sweet. His brother's William Henry Wilson death cert.
lists father as Alexander Wilson.
Also researching Williams, Perry, and McClure in Wyoming Co.
I'm hoping someone might have information on my ggg-gfather, Bernard
BERRAN. His death certificate, dated Nov. 29, 1910 (in Augusta, ME)
lists his age as 65, born in East Arcade, NY, parents Daniel BERRAN and
Julia PERCELL, both Irish immigrants. I have not yet been able to locate
the place of death for Daniel and Julia; they may have remained in
Arcade when Bernard left for Maine. It appears that Bernard had a
brother, William BERREN, who was living in Augusta in 1901, when his
daughter was married. Any info. on these people would be a great help.
Also, if anyone knows the address for the Arcade town clerk and how far
back town vital records go, I'd appreciate that information as well.
Thanks in advance for any help!
My father was John Carlson and he married Myra
His parents were Anna Peterson and Oscar Carlson
My dad's siblings were Carol and she married Joseph Cadden and he was b. in
Phylis married Jerome Wazzman
Donald (Sonnie) Married Mary
Anna's parents were from PA
Anna was born in Dagus Mine,Pa in 1889
Her brother was Charles and he lived in Pittsburg in 1948
Anyone recognize my family?
Thanks for the informatio on the last Wyoming digest. I hope to visit the
Portageville/Warsaw area next week and do some more checking things out.
Possible visit to Genessee Falls town clerk who the County Historian in
Warsaw told me is also the town historian. She lives in Portageville and
the town offices are there.
I might be able to do some cemetery photography in Vermont and/or
Florida. do you know of where I should connect to do that?
I have a listing of all the Historical Societies in Wyoming County, but can
find none for Genesee Falls, the area around Portageville. Your best bet would be
to check with the Wyoming County Historian, 26 Linwood Avenue, Warsaw NY 14569,
(716) 786-8818 for information concerning your ancestor. They have a fantastic
store of information. Plus one of the historians who works there for the last 10
years has been compiling data on EVERY Wyoming County resident who served in the
Civil War for a book and just may have the information you are looking for. Every
year, he has gone to the National Archives and copied the military files for his
collection. So be sure to check with him and possibly he already has covered your
ancestor and has his complete military record on file.

My ancestor, James Conley is buried in the Pioneer Catholic Cemetery,
Portageville. The stone gives his date of death as August 19, 1861, age
40. This is all I know about him. I am wondering if the town clerk has
death records for this time period, and if so, what town Portageville is
in....or is there a town or village historian who might have some
information? I understand that the Catholic church in town has no records
of death or burial for that time period. Family history has it that James
was injured in the Battle of Bull Run and died from his injuries, but I
can find no record of anyone of the right age serving in the Union
I am a Vermont resident, living in a motor home and travelling most of
the time. We are going to be heading from Norbeck Maryland to Rochester,
NY around July 13 and would probably make a trip to the Portageville area
if I knew of any places that might help me in my research.
My great-grandfather, James Conley (Connolly), son of the Portageville
James Conley, lived in the Lima area and is buried there. James Connolly
of Lima didn't come to the US until 1875.
Thanks in advance for any leads anyone can give me.
