I am searching for information about my father's family. My father is William Ezra DECKER (1932-1993) son of Philip DECKER (1904-1973) and Esther (KAZLAUKAS) DECKER (1901-1939). Her parents were Mathew (1873-1934) and Rose KAZLAUKAS (1871-1948). I would like to know about my grandfather's (the DECKERS) history as I cannot find his parents names or places of birth. I would also like information about the KAZLAUKAS family, such as how they came to be in the area, were they first generation immigrants, and what part of the world they came from (Lithuania?)

In the 1850 US Census, Chenango County, Town of Sherburne, Page 247B there's a William ROSE, age 23, a carpenter, enumerated with the SEYMOUR family. I'd like to find some information about this William ROSE: Where was he born? Who are his parents? Are they in Chenango County? Did he marry? The name of his wife? I'm trying to ascertain if this is the same William ROSE of Wurtsboro, Sullivan County who married Emily HOTCHKISS of Rondout, Ulster County in November, 1850.

I am researching Richard STONEMAN and his wife Mary PERKINS. Richard STONEMAN died in New Berlin 2 Nov 1821. I would like to find others who are researching the same family line. I believe he has a daughter Mary who married Nathan CHENEY.


Paul Campbell Sun Dec 5 12:46:41 2004
Looking for information on Susan CAMPBELL, b.1879, or any other info on this family group. I have a good mystery here.
Listed in 1880 Census of Greene is Dwight LYMAN with wife, Emily, her widowed mother Lovina CAMPBELL, and a one-year old girl Susan CAMPBELL, listed as Dwight's niece.

Emily LYMAN is former Emily CAMPBELL, daughter of Greene residents Rufus and Lovinia CAMPBELL. Her brother is Rufus Aaron CAMPBELL. Emily marries Dwight LYMAN sometime between 1870 and 1880.

Susan CAMPBELL is the mystery. As a CAMPBELL, her father should be Emily's only brother Rufus Aaron CAMPBELL. But there is no further information on him after 1870 census.

If anyone has researched the LYMAN family, I would like to know if there is any information on this CAMPBELL daughter, Susan CAMPBELL, or about any descendents of Dwight and Emily.

Looking for ggrandfather William S. BOWEN born 2/14/1818 in New York. Have tried for years to find his parents. Has anyone run across this name in their research. Thanks, Pat


John Elihu Mullinex Thu Dec 30 12:20:24 2004
Looking for information on Herbert Uriah FOULDS. Birth certificate has George FOULDS as his father. Daisy BROWN is listed as his mother. He was born 04-16-1896. I have found the marriage certificate for Daisy BROWN marrying Uriah MULNIX in 1888. Uriah died in 1889. Daisy married George FOULDS in 1890. In 1893 she had a son named Charles. Three years later she gives birth to Herbert Uriah. From 1896 to 1900 I am at a loss as to why she would leave Charles with George FOULDS and leave Herbert Uriah with James MULNIX brother of Uriah. I found Herbert in the 1900 census with James MULNIX and Anna BEARDSLEY. Anna was married to James and used his surname until the census of 1900, where she used her maiden name. In 1910 Herbert Uriah shows up in the cenus as a MULNIX / MULLINEX. Did Daisy have an affair with James and have a child by him? She later married a George LOWE from Chenango County. Lucy MULNIX was James and Uriah's sister.


Clmcq Thu Dec 30 21:33:36 2004
