I would appreciate any information about the family of my great-great-grandfather Jacob Ebblie ( 3-2-1812-----4-25-1885). We will soon be visiting Lowville & other nearby communities, will see the graves in Ebbley Cemetery, and look for records. Where should we inquire for marriage record of Alvin Morris Ebbley and Marcella Comstock (married 11-10-1845)? Are there descendents of Jacob Ebblie in Lowville? (We will be visiting a great granddaughter in Evans Mills.)

Seeking information about the Michael Kelley family. Michael was born approximately 1814 in Ireland, was married to a woman named Mary, also born approx 1814. They had a son, Patrick, while still living in Ireland, possible in 1840. Their next child, my 2nd great grandmother, Mary A. was born in 1844/45 in Croghan.

The next record I have of this family is the 1860 census and they are living in Manheim, Herkimer County. Here Mary met and married James Costello. They eventually settled in Amsterdam, NY, after a brief stay in Camden, Oneida County.

Michael and his wife returned to Lewis County at some point, where they are listed in the 1880 Census in Belfort. Sons Thomas (age 23) and Robert (age 16) along with daughter Lizzie (19) are living with them. Michael and Mary are buried in St.Vincent de Paul Cemetery. Michael's father's name may have been Patrick.

Any information about when this family came to America, where they lived in Ireland, or where they were between 1845 and 1860 is appreciated. I am happy to share any other information I have.

He is Burlington, VT - 1850 Census
Hyde Park, VT - 1840 Census

His son, Edward Payson Hart was born in Middlesex VT in 1835, so I am ASSUMING they Lived in Middlesex, VT in 1835… after that nothing.

I have two leads:

Nathanial Hart - from Hyde Park, VT
Samuel Hart - from Stowe, Vermont….

In the 1830 census there is a STEPHEN HART and a Nathaniel Hart living next to each other in Turin, Lewis County, NY. Both men are 60-70…. Stephen has a son 20-30. Nathaniel has a son 30-40.

Trying to find out if any of these NEW YORK men are ML Hart's dad, and if so, to keep tracking backwards in the genealogy in New York….

He is recorded in 1810 Census in Lowville but not in 1820. His wife returned to Tinmouth Vermont after his death, where they had settled previously lived, and died there 9 Sept 1842.

I am trying to find the cemetery where my great grandfather is buried. He was born in Jefferson County, but toward the end of the 19th century, he moved to Lewis County. Family tradition indicates that he lived near Port Leyden. Military records confirm Port Leyden as his place of residence. He died on January 23, 1896 and his death certificate is signed by Doctor Wm H. Johnston of Port Leyden. The death certificate indicates his burial to be in Port Leyden and the undertaker is listed as DM Coe or Cue. The death certificate is registered in the town of Lyonsdale of Lewis County, New York.

If it is helpful. He was a Catholic. That might narrow the search down. I don't know if you have more than one Catholic cemetery in Port Leyden or not. But if there is only one, chances are he is buried there. The reason I would like to find the cemetery is so I can place a stone marker in his honor. He served honorably as a member of the 20th New York Calvary (Company E) during the Civil War. In fact, his death was caused by complications generated by an injury received in the line of duty just weeks before his discharge from the U. S. Army. He has been a great inspiration to me and my son, who recently served in our most recent war (Operation Iraqi Freedom).

This man is my great grandfather and His wife was impoverished by doctor bills and funeral expenses. For that reason she was not able to place a marker on his grave. Now after 108 years of lying in an unmarked grave, I think it is time for our nation to pay respects to him. I plan to make that a reality. Your help in locating the cemetery will be greatly appreciated. Once I know what cemetery he is buried in, I will need to figure out some way of locating his grave. If I can't do that, perhaps there is some procedure for placing a marker somewhere in the cemetery near where he is buried. I am attaching the James Murray's death certificate to this email. I am also attaching a photo. The photo might not be any help in the task at hand, but perhaps it is of some interest to the people in Lewis County.

Thanks for your help.

I am looking for any information of a marriage of a John FOWLER to a Nettie LANG in the Lewis county area. They had a son named WILLIAM FOWLER b; 1931 in LOWVILLE, NY.

Would this son have been born in a hospital?

If so where would the hospital be and what is the name of it?

What paper would a birth announcement go to?

How would I find a marriage certificate if I don't know the date or town the person was married in or even the year.

I appreciate any thoughts and always loads of help.

Thanks

Dorothea was born 6 Apr 1969 and moved to Lewis County in 1806 from Palatine, Stone Arabia, Montgomery Co. NY with her husband John Reed who was born in 1762 and died in 1837.

I checked your list of Lewis Co.,but didn't find anything helpful to help me with my ancestor William Wallace Nash, my gggrandfather and his wife Louisa. I contacted Jefferson Co., but didn't get much from them, either. I do have his death certificate which lists as his birth place Pillar Point which was in 1830 (approx.) I guess, as I can't find him in the census of N.Y. for that year. He died in Brownville in 1905, and I located his tombstone in a small cemetery in Pillar Point when I was back there briefly 3 years ago for my SUNY-Potsdam reunion. I don't have access to the N.Y. 1900 census which would show his where-abouts, spouse's maiden name, 2 male off spring's names and possibly his parents' names for sure. The D.C. lists them as a John Nash born in Vt.in 1800 who married in Town of Wilna, Jefferson Co., a Harriet Hawley Nash. Can't find an obit anywhere for either person. At one time there was a Wallace Nash living in Natural Bridge, N,Y., Town of Diana which may be in Lewis Co.

Is ellisburg in Lewis Co.? I have a Jacob Nash there in his later years. He was father of James and was a Minute Man in the Rev. War.

They had three children: Helen Augusta Lynts born 1848 (West Leyden), William born approx. 1850 (West Leyden), George born 1857 (Rome, NY).

That's all I know except that John (Jr.) might have been in the Civil War. Can't find them in any of the Census reports but his War records has him enlisted in Elmira, NY. and mustering out in 1864.

I found a John Lynts, wife Margaret, daughter Mary in the 1850 Census but that's all. This is probably the parents because of the ages listed.

Is there anything anywhere about this man? He's my great-great-grandfather on my grandmother's side and I am trying to finish up our genealogy and print books for our family members and would dearly love to prove his existence.

I'm looking for information on a daughter of Levi Arthur and Sarah (Sally) Hovey Arthur. Census records for 1820 and 1830 show four daughters living with Levi, three of whom I have names for based on "History of Lewis County with Biographical Sketches" by Hough. (This source lists three daughters Jane Ann, Caroline, and Permelia who would be living in 1820 and 1830, and a daughter Melissa that died in 1815). That there is an unnamed daughter of Levi and Sally is also consistent with the 1840 census record, which shows three daughters (Caroline is supposed to have married before 1840).

Based on the census, this unnamed daughter would have to be born between 1815 and 1819. Given other sources of information I believe that her name was also Melissa and so would be the second Melissa born to this family - possibly as a twin with Alfred.

I'm also looking for marriage information for a Melissa Arthur to a Daniel Haight Ruttan (or Rutan, since there seems to be inconsistency in his spelling). The date of marriage is likely between the 1840 census date (say late 1840) and the end of 1844. Daniel Ruttan and family (Melissa, Levi A., Charles E., Daniel A., Matthew A., and Mary L. Note that the "A." in each middle name is "Arthur") appear in the 1860 Census for Martinsburg immediately after the entry for Orlando Arthur Jr. Melissa may or may not be related to Levi Arthur and Sally Hovey Arthur. I'm just trying to find her connection to the Martinsburg Arthur family if there is one.

The picture I have of Levi and Sally Hovey Arthur's family is listed below. It is a compilation from different sources, some of which has not been validated: however, the names and birthdates for all but the unknown daughter derive from Hough. (Marriages for several also derive from Hough). There are a couple of opportunities for the birth of the fourth child in the 1815-1819 range, although again some age information I have on Melissa Ruttan suggests she might have been born in 1818, possibly making her a twin to Alfred (or perhaps Alfred was born prematurely?)

Jane Ann Arthur - b. 16 Feb 1807 d. ?
m. 17 Jan 1850 to Samuel Lanpher
Orlando Arthur - b. 4 June 1809 d. ?
m. 16 Jan 1834 to Eliza Ann Mastan
Caroline Arthur - b. 10 Jan. 1812 d. ?
m. Apr 1838 to Luther Barnes b. ? d. ?

I could certainly use some help in finding information about George Scrafford and family. He is listed in the 1880 census as living in Lyonsdale, Lewis Co., being age 39 and a farmer. His wife, Delilah was 38 and they had two children at the time, George M. age 4, and Myra B. age 2. My interest in this family is through Delilah, whose maiden name was Mereness. I have found info that she married George Scrafford on 10/25/1866 and he was listed as being from Port Leyden, Lewis Co. Delilah was a sister to my Great-Grandmother Ellen Mereness Collins. All of the family (at least 13 of them are known) were born in the Sharon Springs area. I couldn't imagine how Delilah would come to meet George until I realized that Delilah's sister, Mary Mereness, married William D. Coe of Port Leyden. He is listed as the son of Dennis M. and Emma Seymour Coe. Any information on theses families would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your interest.

I need real proof of the ancestry of Hiram Burr. I am looking for any information that can be CONFIRMED beyond doubt, about the parent's of: Hiram Burr, who died April 15, 1813 somewhere in Lewis or Jefferson Co , while in the NY Militia-46th Reg-Coxe's Mititia, and left a wife, Catherine Van Scriver [who then married in 1814, Grinman Austin, who died in 1834 in Denmark, Lewis Co, NY]

Hiram left at least 6 children: Eunice,b. 1800- Polly, b. 1802- Isaiah Burr, b. March 9 or 11, 1805, -Abram, b. 1807- , Harris, b. 1809-, & Duma Burr, b. 1812. There is some evidence these children were living in Denmark, since Abram & Duma married Munger sisters in Denmark.

Catherine [Van Scriver] Austin died August 9, 1872 in Denmark, Lewis Co, NY--She may have re-married a third time.[no longer with Austin as a last name] An obit on this date might confirm this.

Hiram Burr had 2 brothers, also in the militia in Lewis Co, Isaiah Burr died Nov 6, 1812 in Ogdensburg, St Lawrence Co, NY and Joab Burr, died March 10, 1828 in Martinsburgh-Obit in the Black River Gazette on Mar 12, 1828.

We have extensive Pension papers, but nothing confirms the ancestry of these 3 men.

Just found my great uncle's border entry cards on Sat. and was wondering what type of work would be bringing him from Casselman, Ontario to Croghan, NY during the period of 1908 thru 1917? On some of the cards it says that he was a laborer and on one of them it says "bushman". Sometimes he was there for a month and other times several months. Thank you for anyone who might help.

I lived in Lewis Co. for a large part of my life. I am trying to find information about my great Grandfather, David Philips. He was married to Hannah Hooper, and had 2 or three children. David, William and Sarah, I believe. I have researched the cemeteries in the Town of Turin, where I believe they settled on what was known as Swackhammer Hill, near Houseville. Do you have any suggestions for where I can continue this search.

I'm looking for info on the marriage of my great-grandparents. My ggrandmother, Grace Ingalls was born in Hartwick, NY in 1870 and married Jay Edwards some time in the 1890's (my grandfather was born in 1900 in Chicago). I'm assuming the marriage was in her hometown. Do you know if there are any marriage records for Otsego County in the 1890's anywhere. I'm at a loss and could use some big help. Do you know where I might inquire about such records?
Thanks in advance for any help.

I am interested in obtaining any available information on August and Josephine KEMP, listed in the 1860 Federal Census as living in West Turin, Lewis, NY. One son Edward, age 7, was listed. Birthplace for parents and son is listed as France. August's occupation was listed as butcher.

I have a typwritten page (looks like a draft copy for a news article) of family history on an Augustus KEMPF, married to E.L. MULLER, including the following information:
Leon Muller was Augustus' father-in-law.
Leon Muller, his father, two sisters and brothers-in-law came to Croghan from Alsace-Lorraine in 1855.
Augustus Kempf ran a grist mill in Croghan in 1855.
Augustus Kempf was the proprieter of a West Leyden Hotel in 1859.
Leon Muller was prominent in Boonville in the 1870's and 1880's.

On a Chicago IL death certificate for Edward Leo Kempf, birth is given as 27 March 1853 Rome, NY . Parents are listed as August and Josephine Kempf. (I am currently corresponding with Rome NY Historical Society to try to find record of birth for Edward Leo Kempf.)

My hope is to show that August and Josephine (Miller) Kemp from the census, and Augustus and E.L. (Muller) Kempf, from the family pages, are the same couple.

Is there anyone who can offer help here? Thank you.

I have been on the trail of my GGGG. Grandfather Elias Sage who was born in 1759 in Middletown CT. the son of Samuel-- going back to David Sage 1639 to Middletown 1652. We have found through the Revolutionary War Pension Records that he was Married in Denmark Lewis County in 1785 to a Elizabeth Chamberlin but in studying over these hand written personal testimonies from a judge and or Justice of the peace verifying that she was the widow of Elias Sage sr. who died in 1852, there are some grave discrepancies in dates etc. Their family consisted of 12 Children, including my GGG Grandfather Martin Sage b. 1784, and there is a census, I think the 1820, that shows him in Denmark, Lewis County. his son Lawrence, the next one in our line, was born in Champion in Jefferson County in 1810. Where we don't know but there may be a Baptism record available if we knew where to look.

There was an article in the Watertown Daily Times in Sept. 1951 showing a picture of a house built by the Elias Sage (jr.) who was a younger brother of our Martin Sage. The text on this article explained that Elias sr. who was from Sandisfield Massachusetts was removed to Lewis County in 1800 and there son Elias jr. attended district school there (somewhere in Lewis County ? -- it doesn't say where) and when he was 15 he was removed to South Champion and became an excellent carpenter and was chosen to help Deacon Granger build the LeRay mansion.

We are wondering if Elizabeth is the second wife for it appears that they had nine of their twelve children by the year 1800 and the other three in 1804, 1806 and 1809. We can't seem to find any documentation as to where Elias Sage sr. and Elizabeth got married and exactly when. Also, the same problem for Martin Sage who married Mary Jewett -- Pat James lists a Jewett Corners in her Jefferson County book (page 35) at LeRay now known as Sanford Corners, also page #132 shows the name Jewett in the section regarding Old Houses of The North Country as published in the Watertown Daily News and available at the Flower Memorial Library. This is where I found the good info on the Sage House.. I wonder if it is still standing? It ended up in the ownership of Seymour A. Woolworth who married Martha J. Sage daughter of Col. Elias Sage jr.(There is a connection to the F. W. Woolworth family here somewhere).

If you can help us find any answers or direct us to some one who can-- on the above we sure would appreciate it.

I have been looking for the parents and information on the ancestry of Carrie Klock. She was born in 1866, died in 1918 and is buried in the Carthage, NY cemetery. She was married to George Birchenough. In the 1900 census she was living with her husband and four children in Lewis County (I think in Montague) . Some time after that her husband left for Billings Montana and didn't return. I have looked for her obituary in Carthage and death record in Carthage, Pinkney and NY vital records to no avail. Any information would be appreciated

I am seeking information about an Alpheus White (Parents were Josiah and Rebecca (Simonds) White who came from Charlemont, Mass.) who was born in April 1788 in Mass. and moved with his parents to Jefferson and Lewis Counties, N.Y. Alpheus married Nancy Williams from Connecticut. Our family notes indicate that they had five children born in Lewis County: Alpheus Williams White,b 1815, James Henry White, b. 1817, James Everlyn White, b. 1823, Josiah White, b. 1823, and Rebecca, b. 1825. However, I cannot find any official record of the births of these children. Do you have any help? I have written to all the town clerks in Lewis County but their records do not go back beyond 1888. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you,

They enlisted together on Apr. 30, 1864 at Leydon, NY in Co. "F", 186th New York Infantry and were both discharged June 2, 1865 at Alexandria, VA. Governieur Morris Perkins enlisted Sept. 8, 1861 in Omro, WI, in Co. "C", 14th Wisconsin Infantry and was wounded at the battle for Cornith and was discharged with disability on Dec. 19, 1862.

I have never found any history on the 186th NY in Lewis County.
