NYSCOGO TO HOST SPRING MEETING IN ROCHESTER NY
Please come join us and discuss future possibilities for

The business meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. followed by a

Naukam, Coordinator of Historical Resources will give us a
tour of their resources.

collections pertaining to upstate families. The family
history section contains genealogies of New York State
families, church and cemetery records, newspaper indexes,
and basic genealogical works. In the microform area are
census records (1790-1930), newspapers, and directories.
Nineteenth century atlases, county histories, and
biographical reviews are found in the Local History Room.
Genealogists should not forget to check Special Collections

A new mailing list has been approved by Rootsweb to
represent the interests of genealogists and genealogy
organizations in New York State.
The list has been initiated by the N.Y. STATE COUNCIL OF
GENEALOGICAL ORGANIZATIONS. NYSCOGO was formed in 1991 to
facilitate communication between genealogical and historical
groups. NYSCOGO provides a forum for local and state-wide
action and interest in the genealogical field. Any
genealogical organization in New York State is eligible for
membership, which entitles the naming of two delegates who
serve as the link between NYSCOGO and the individual
society. "Genealogical organization" is defined as any
organization that considers itself to have a genealogical
function, including, but not limited to, genealogical,
lineage and historical societies, libraries or archives with
local history and genealogical collections.
Though we hope that your group will be interested in
membership to NYSCOGO, membership is not necessary for
participation on this list. It is our wish that a Rootsweb
mailing list will provide a more convenient and expedient
forum for discussion, communication and sharing - meeting
only twice a year can not provide as great an opportunity to

I am trying to locate the wife of Edward Lawton. Her surname is
unknown and given name is Anna. Edward was born about 1778 in
Richmond, Washington County, Rhode Island. He married Anna about
1827 possibly in Genesee County, New York. He died after 1850
probably in Bennington, Wyoming County, New York. Edward's parents
are Thomas Lawton and Anne Richmond.
Anna was born about 1785 in Massachusetts.
I would appreciate any information on the above people. I am
researching this for a friend.
I am looking for any information on James Caldwell. On one Census, it
said he was born in Allegany County, another says Wyoming County. I have
tried to seek out which towns had been in both counties at one time or
another. I came up with Eagle, Pike, Hume, Portageville as
possibilities. Now it wasn't much before 1815 that those counties were a
part of Livingston County. But I have not found any Livingston County
Caldwell's in the 1820 Census. So either the name was spelled
differently or the counties were not notated correctly. Does anyone have
any ideas on this BRICK WALL!!! Below is James in the later Census
(1860,1870, 1880). He died in 1882.

Wyoming County, NY GenWeb inquiry
I am seeking information about the HARRISON families of Livingston County/Wyoming County, New York. After emigrating to the U.S. from England around the 1830's, the Harrisons resided in Livingston or Wyoming County, New York, before moving to Fulton County, Ohio around 1846. I have not been successful in uncovering information about the Harrison branch of my family tree, prior to their arrival in Ohio. Here is what I know so far:
1.. George C. Harrison (my great grandfather) was the son of CHARLES HARRISON and SARAH JANE HOWCRAFT (or Howcroft - I have seen both spellings). Charles was born in England (Yorkshire, I believe) around 1824 and emigrated to the US sometime between 1825 and 1840. I have been unable to determine who his parents were. Sarah Howcraft's family was also from England and lived in Wyoming County, NY in the mid 1800's.
2.. CHARLES HARRISON was previously married to a MARY (marriage around 1844 in Wyoming County), with whom he had two children while living in Wyoming County, NY - Frances and Henrietta. I am unable to determine Mary's maiden name. Charles and Mary then moved to Fulton County, Ohio and had five more children together. Mary died about 1865
3.. Many of the Harrisons spent time in Wyoming County, New York after their arrival in the US, and then moved to Fulton County, Ohio thereafter. I am unable to find records of them prior to the 1850 Census in Fulton County, however.
d.. I have seen citations of residence in Perry and/or Castile, New York. There were several other families in those towns who also moved to the farmland in Fulton County,Ohio.
5.. I know that there were several male Harrisons who were land owners in Fulton County, Ohio around 1880, according to Census records and Land Ownership records. I have record of JOHN HARRISON, JAMES HARRISON, WILLIAM HARRISON, and CHARLES HARRISON, but I am unable to determine if they were brothers, half-brothers, or cousins since I can't find the parents' names.
6.. On the Fulton County GenWeb, I did find obituaries for Charles Harrison and John Harrison. I also found an obituary for Ann Harrison Wright, whom I believe was either sister or cousin. The obit states that her father was Robert and that they emigrated to the US about 1826 and settled in Livingston County, NY before moving to Ohio.
7.. CHARLES HARRISON died in Fulton County, Ohio in 1891.
Do you have any records or documentation that would help me determine parents of the various Harrison males, or more specific information on when they arrived in Livingston/Wyoming County? Once I know the parents names and approximate arrival date in the US, I can trace them back to England. I would also like to know the maiden name of Charles's first wife, Mary. I am unable to travel to New York to research historical records in person, so if there are additional online resources that you would suggest I review, please advise accordingly. ( I have used Ancestry.com, FamilySearch.org, the Wyoming County website links, and the Fulton County Historical Society, Genealogical Society and GenWeb so far....The folks at the Fulton County Genealogical Society have been very helpful.) Thank you in advance for any assistance or advice you can provide.
