Looking for information on Thomas Woodbridge PHELPS (1772-1838) and his family. They were in Lenox, NY in the early 1800's and he died there as did his wife, Lucina (1819). Their son, Peter Perry PHELPS was born in Lenox in 1813. He had sisters, Hattie, Mary, and Olivia who were also born in Lenox. Peter had left by 1840 but I don't know if there were other family members still in Lenox. Thank you for any help.

I would like to the names of the members of the GAR Post in Georgetown NY. The name of the post was Carey Miner #624.


Denny Thompson Fri Jul 15 11:06:28 2005
I thought for sure the THOMPSON's lived in Madison Center area, from 1811 until about 1834, when several family of them moved to Erie Co. NY. We had found a listing for an Isaac T. who died in 1811, and is listed as being buried on the high hill, in Madison Center, it was known as the Old Meeting House Burying Grounds. In fact Thomas THOMPSON [b. 1753] had a son named Isaac who would have been 32 years old in 1811, the same information on the marker found in that cemetery by Trey Williams, who is now restoring that old cemetery, and recently located that old marker again.

But now, because census records from 1820 and 1830, list the THOMPSON's in Hamilton, not Madison, we are thinking that we may be wrong about Isaac, and in fact they may have lived closer to Hamilton. Thomas probably died before 1820, as his wife shows up in Hamilton in the 1830 Census and in 1840 in Erie Co.

Thanks for any help or suggestions you may have for me. Are there any tax or poll records that go back that far that you know of, perhaps some THOMPSONs owned the land where that Thompson Cem. now sits.

I am looking for the whereabouts of my greatgrandfather James DEAN in 1870. I found a James DEAN in Lenox in the 1870 census who is listed as a boarder and laborer. My grandmother told me that one of our ancestors worked on the Erie Canal. Was work being done on the Erie Canal in 1870? Is it possible that a person working on the canal would have lived in Lenox?
Thanks for your help.

Lorna SHAW - I have just seen your 2001 posting regarding the 1828 WHITMAN Bible. I am interested in seeing it or copies thereof.
John could have been one of the older brothers of my great great grandmother Abigail (WHITMAN) HARDING. She was one of 15 children born to William WHITMAN and Ruth JAMES. They lived in Herkimer (1790 - 1805), Madison (1805 - 1811), and Onondaga (1811 - ?) counties. John died 1844 Ingham NY. In 1850 Mary lived in Geneseo, Livingston Co NY with her father William (who dies in 1854) and her brothers-in-law and their families: James, and Ira.
I do not (yet!) know the other names you have mentioned. Regards, Katey Ellen Price
