Both birth records show their mother Mary Jane WELLS was born in Newton, CT. and their father Charles A. MAIN was born in Lenox, NY. between July 26, 1836 and October 20, 1836.

In the book "History of Otsego County" it states on page 293 that Caleb BROWN was an early settler (1805) in the town known as Unadilla Forks. It also states that he built a wollen-factory on what is called the "island" located a short distance south of Unadilla Forks. In a book on Madison County history I ran across the same general information only this book said that the "island" was about 3/4 mile south of Unadilla Forks. I have about 60 years knowledge of Unadilla Forks and can't picture where this factory may have been. Depending on which side of the Unadilla River it was on, it could have either been in Otsego or Madison county. Does anyone know where this site may be located?

Hi there, my name is Gary D. O'DELL and I'm trying to find out where my Dad's family is located. He says that he was born in New York in 1896/98. I have been unable to find out anything about his family so far, and I have been trying. HIs name was Forrest or so he says it was listed in the 1930 census in Los Angeles. That I know. It is just the time before that is known nothing about. In later years we talked and he said he had been thrown out of the house by his mother Carolyn or Caroline PFERSICK / PFERSICH / FIERSICH??

Looking for proof of birth for a James Martin or James Merton COLSON, born 10 Jan 1835, at Poolville or Hamilton, Madison, NY. Parents were Andrew Allen COLSON born in Massachusetts & Mary SHATTUCK born in Connecticut. The COLSON's I think owned a grist mill or some kind of a mill at Poolville or close to there in late 1700s or early 1800s. If you have any history Id like to know where I can find it or if you find some that you can send, also something on the birth.
I thank you for any information you can find.
