I'm searching on behalf of my mother, Ruth (WILLIAMS) HOLLINS, who was contacted by an heir-search firm. She is, apparently, the only surviving relative (a cousin) of Dever O. WILLIAMS who died 12/29/01 in Oneida, Madison County, NY. We are interested in learning about the history of the WILLIAMS family in Madison County. Family lore and a visit upstate had led us to believe that most of the family had lived near Rome, NY.


Teresa Dugan Sun Jul 11 21:23:33 2004
I am researching the DUGAN - MAHONEY - AYLWARD families of Madison County, New York.
I am looking for information on the DUGAN family, who lived in Cazenovia in the 1870-1920, Henry DUGAN and his wife Bridget (AYLWARD) DUGAN.
I am also looking for information on the MAHONEY family. I believe that that they may have lived in, or around the Cazenovia area in the mid to late 1800's. Alice MAHONEY married Patrick DUGAN in 1895. Patrick is Henry DUGAN's son. Henry had a large family, all of them born in New York. Henry and Bridget immigrated from Ireland as small children. The DUGANs and MAHONEYs mentioned are buried at St James Catholic Cemetery in Cazenovia, New York. I have contacted the Church and am awaiting an answer.
If there is anyone who might have some information, well, it would be much appreciated. This is a big brick wall for me.
Thanks, Teresa Dugan

Hi, Looking for a copy of marriage or some proof of this marriage for Allen D COLSON and Mary SHATTUCK, married 13 March 1818 in Hamilton, Madison Co, New York. They lived for a time at Poolville, so this may be where the marriage was recorded in Hamilton. Believe the date to be right or very close.

Also looking for a copy or proof of the birth of a James Merton or Martin COLSON, born 10 Jan 1835 in Poolville or near Hamilton, in Madison County, New York

Also a adoption of a Harriet DICKERMAN, an Irish immigrant taken in and adopted by the COLSONs in same time of birth of James COLSON. She later married Lorenzo COLSON, one of the son's from the family she was adopted into.

If anyone has the time to find any of this for me I'd certainly appricate it, or if you know where I might find any of these records please let me know. If anyone goes to the Poolville Cemetery, could you let me know if there is any SHATTUCKs buried there?
Thanks in advance for any information anyone has.
