Looking for information on Mabel (BARNETT) EVERETT and Albert George EVERETT (from England), name changed to Everett Edward EVERETT. Albert arrived in 1905 from England. Mabel was the oldest of several children. Believe Mabel's father's name was Charles BARNETT. Mabel had a nephew named "Tommy" that died (received a purple heart) in World War II. Albert EVERETT was a horse trader/trainer. They later moved to Missouri. Thanks.

I am trying to locate any information on my experience with polio in 1943. My name at that time was Marilyn Joyce MILLER. I attended the Brookfield Elementary School and was 6 years old. My parents were Clarence and Ethel MILLER and we lived on a farm just outside Brookfield. I came down with polio along with 2 other sisters and a brother. I had to be placed in a hospital in Utica then to Springfield, Massachusetts for a period of time. At the time I was in Utica there was an article with my picture in the hospital in a Utica news paper. I don't know the hospital name or the newspaper. If anyone has any information and can also find a copy of the article I would appreciate it. Thank you. Marilyn

Charles Lee SIMMONS (a/k/a Charles L. SIMMONS, Charles SIMMONS and C. L. SIMMONS) was born in 1777 to Gideon and Patience (ELLIS) SIMMONS in Little Compton, Newport County, Rhode Island but moved to Madison County with his family (at some unknown date prior to 1810).

In the 1810 census, it appears that Charles had a wife and three children, two sons (both under 16) and a daughter (presumably under 16), so the three might have been born ca. 1805, 1807 and 1809.

By the 1850 census, Charles and wife Susannah are alone in their household. I have not been able to verify if they might have had more children between 1810 and 1820, but it seems likely.
Does anyone know the names of any one or more of the children of Charles? My current theory is that he had a daughter named Maria born in September 1807 and that his wife Susannah might have been Susannah MANCHESTER, daughter of Job and Zilpha (WOODMAN) MANCHESTER, born about 1785. Can anyone shed any light on this family? Please contact me at duaneaboggs@hotmail.com. Thanks.

I am trying to find out information about 4 19th century paper mills that were located in Chittenango, NY. The owners (in 1885) were Henry L. BEARD (Central New York Mill), A. CRICHTON, H. DE MEZA and O & H GARLOCK.
I am conducting research on 19th century straw wrapping paper mills, and I believe information about these mills may be useful.

My great grandfather John CURTIS and his parents William CURTIS and Charlotte (GIBBS) CURTIS immigrated into Madison County from England in 1828. John eventually settled in Iowa but his parents remained in New York. John married Ruby Ann HARRIS from Madison County. I am seeking any information about where in the county they settled, where are the parents buried, etc. If you can not provide these answers, perhaps you might refer me to someone who might be able to help me--perhaps even to some distant relation in your area.

I am looking for any information on Benjamin LAWRENCE born circa 1780 or 1781 in Lenox, Mass. ? and his wife Lois ELLIOT. Benjamin may have lived in Madison County in 1809. Is Erastus his son? Erastus and his wife are buried in Lenox Rural Cemetery. I know that Abram (Abraham) born 1819 in Madison County is his son. My grandfather Ambrose LAWRENCE was b. 1823 and his death certificate says he was born in Lenox on April 8, 1823. My grandmother mentioned Erastus and Abraham as her uncles. Benjamin and Lois moved to Warren County in 1844 and are buried in Rice Cemetery, Saratoga County, NY.
Any information appreciated and I would be glad to share.
Thanks, mabayer@borg.com

Am at a brickwall. am trying to find the possible marriage date and location of my gggrandparents John C. NEAR and Tammison (Tammy) LOUNSBERRY. They were supposedly married in 1817 where I have no idea. Their 1st child Caroline was supposedly born in Smithfield/Peterboro in 1818 and their 2nd child William F. NEAR in Smithfield in 1820? his obit said he was born in Scuaudo but have been told there isn't any such place. John had at least 2 cousins also named John, This where the confusion comes in, His cousins Johns were from Frenchville, also had a cousin Caspar (Jaspar) in Lenox. John C.'s father Conrad NEAR lived in Lenox and also owned land on the Onieda Reservation moving there from Stone Arabia. John C.'s location from at least 1810 to 1833 when he showed up in Chautauqua county is a mystery. Any help is appreciated

Bob Lefler Mon Jun 9 18:33:21 2003
My ggrand uncle was Benjamin LEFLER / LEFFLER. We are looking for his grave and his possible wife's family. His obit (He died on June 11,1869, in NYC) stated that his remains were shipped to Oneida, NY, and directed Oneida newspapers to take note. However, since his family (LEFLERs) did not come from anywhere in the area, this is strange and leads me to rationalize that perhaps his possible wife whom we know only as Franziska LEFLER, and who died in August of 1870, may have come from Oneida. They may have been married here or in NYC in the 1840s or 1850s.

Uncle Ben was a dentist. Could he have received such training in the area during the 1840s? (He had been orphaned at a young age in the Elmira area.)
