I am looking for information on Stephen William TAYLOR.

The Rev. Moses LYON lived in Madison county, NY in the 1870 to 1880 range. He was a prominent minister and preached on a circuit earlier in his life. He instigated the construction of the M.E. church in Sullivan. The last I could find was him living in Sullivan with his wife Ann at age 70.

Does anyone know where in the county he might be buried? I do not have a date of death for him. Please email me if you find him buried in a cemetery in Madison county or anywhere for that matter. I am assuming his wife Ann would be buried next to him.

I have an ancestor named Thomas CARR who served in the Civil War from NY. His war records state that his birth was in what looks like "Barn Castle" NY. FamilySearch.org shows this guy as born in "Barn Castle" Madison County NY.
I cannot find the name of any such community. Does anyone know if there was ever a community with such a name in Madison County? (a vanished community?).
Thanks in advance.

HUDSON (born 1847), and my grandfather's wife--my grandmother-- was Ellen MOORE (born 1850). I know nothing about who my great grandparents might have been or where any of the family originated.

Does the Madison County Historical Society have within its records a copy of a non-fiction soft cover book authored by BAROTT detailing the history of the Oneida Indian Nation?

Thank you for your consideration of responding to this query.

Looking for Uriah ALVERSON. His daughter Lydia married Amos BURTON. All are buried in the Opening which is supposedly an old Cemetery on the edge of town near the Old Forks Road.

Richard Wheeler Mon Nov 6 16:16:45 2006
I am seeking information on Daniel WHEELER, an early settler in Lebanon, Chenango County (before Madison County), NY from 1797 until his untimely death December 25, 1806 (age 35) in Lebanon. His wifeís name was Amanda WHEELER, who after his death, in a second marriage, became Amanda LAPHAM. She died in Eaton on April 22, 1869 at age 92. Daniel had a brother in Lebanon with him at the time named Elisha WHEELER.

Elisha WHEELER lived in the area until his death on December 21, 1836, age 68. Daniel and Amanda WHEELER had five children. I would like to find out their names. Additionally, Iíd like to find out where Daniel and his wife came from, before arriving in Chenango County in 1797. It is reported he came from Chatham, Columbia County, NY. It is possible he was actually born in Connecticut and as a child removed to Chatham, Columbia County with his family. Then, as young adults, they (Daniel and Elisha) again removed to Lebanon, Chenango County, NY.

Should you have any information on this matter I would appreciate hearing from you. I have data on WHEELER descendents from Lebanon, Otselic and on to Syracuse I can share.
Best regards, Richard Wheeler

I have hit a road block. My great, great, great grandfather was Jonas BRIGHAM Jr. He married Susannah HOWE in Sudbury, MA and moved to Eaton, NY. They had several children, and I am looking for any birth records for one of their sons, John BRIGHAM. John was born in Eaton and married Lydia CASE. They had two sons, Albert BRIGHAM born 1844 and George BRIGHAM born 1846, both born in Eaton.

I have information verifying John and Lydia's marriage and the burial of Jonas Jr. with his wife and son Henry in Morrisville, NY.

Any help that any one could give would be appreciated. I live in Florida and research in Eaton is almost impossible for me.
Thank you all,

My Great-Grandfather was named Leroy Mason HEAD. He married my Great-Grandmother, Charlotte Euretta NASH prior to 1895, since my Grandmother, Esther Marion HEAD was born June 30,1895 in Cortland, Tioga County, NY (that was where the NASH family was from). They were divorced (quite a scandal) in 1897.

I have no records on Leroy Mason HEAD, but I have reason to believe that the HEAD family was from Madison County, possibly Georgetown.

Jeremiah WILBER born 1802 NY and wife Jane have children buried in Westcott Cemetery, Town of Nelson, Madison County, NY (aka Pleasant Valley, Bucks Woods) Marvin, Melvin, Andrew and William. Also buried there are the parents of his second wife Lydia GRAVES. Also buried there is Richard WILBER and his wife Rhoda (MILLER) WILBER and what looks like a couple of sons of Richard and Rhoda's (Ahiman and Alvin). Jeremiah and Lydia moved to Branch Co., Michigan with some the their children. Jeremiah and Jane's daughter Nancy is my ancestor. I am looking for the surname of Jane and where she is buried. Also how Jeremiah is related to Richard and Rhoda. Could he be a son also? Jeremiah and Jane lived in Wayne Co., NY in 1837 and sold property there and moved to Fenner, Madison Co. then sold proberty there also. Any help on the WILBER / WILBUR families of Madison Co would be greatly appreciated.

Iím a Dane searching for all available information of Andrew Martin FREDRICKSON born as Andreas Martin FREDERIKSEN on the 18th October 1851 in Jutland, Denmark. He arrived at Ellis Island on the 11th of September 1889.
In the 1900 US-census Andrew FREDRICKSON is single and a farm labourer at a farm owned by Helen RISLEY, Madison Township, Madison County, NY (Enumeration District 23).
In the 1910 US-census Andrew M. FREDERICKSON is single and owns a farm in Madison Township, Madison County, NY (Enumeration District 23).
I havenít been able to track him further on in the 1920 and 1930 US-censuses.
I believe he might have died between 1910 and 1920 in Madison, and I would very much appreciate, if someone would be so kind to help me with f.i. a date and place of death and an obituary or other records.
Thank you in advance.
