Seeking info ref my ggGrandfather Norman ADAMS (B. 1799, Oak Hill, NY) son of Thomas ADAMS ( b. 1766). Adams Gen shows Norman was Rector of St Matthews Episcopal Church in Unadilla, NY, and was married to Caroline FRISBEE. Our family history shows Norman married Rebecca WRIGHT.

My four greats-grandfather, Daniel AINSWORTH, died in 1810 in Cherry Valley, Otsego County, New York, according to the Ainsworth Family in North America Genealogy by Parker (1894). I am looking for evidence of his death such as a record of some sort. So far I have come up blank. In particular I am looking for a date when he moved from Columbia County (last record 1791)to Otsego County. His youngest son, Philip AINSWORTH, married Mary CRONKHITE from Danube,Herkimer County, New York, probably about 1800. It is likely that he lived in Cherry Valley around this time. Daniel AINSWORTH's wife was Elizabeth CORBIN. I am also looking for evidence of her death. Philip's wife, Mary CRONKHITE, may have also died in Otsego County. Any help would be appreciated.

NY census records place Robert English in Delaware Co. in 1800, 1810, 1820 in Harpersfield and 1830 in Harpersfield. In 1830 we find Rachel English in town of Maryland, not far away in Otsego Co. I have ancestors Robert and Rachel English. They may have been Irish and/or Wesleyan Methodists. They had a son Noble English, supposedly in 1797 but the 1800 census doesn't show a baby. However, 1810 shows one boy under ten, and a boy and a girl 10-16. How can I go deeper in verifying this info and connecting these folks, who may be my GGGGparents? Is there a NY newsgroup? Are there newsgroups focussed on county genealogy in New York State? Thanks for any pertinent info. Alan English 4 Drum Hill Rd Summit NJ

This Timothy applied for a pension from Otsego Co. in 1818 giving age as 72, which fits my Timothy (born Stoughton, Mass in 1746). My Timothy also had a daughter Betsey born in Hartland, Vermont who appears to have married a Reuben Nichols of Woodstock, Vermont.

The birth date of this Michael is also Oct 4, 1811. While referencing the history of Otsego County I found that a Lutheran Church was founded in the Cherry Valley Area and one of its officer/deacons was named Jacob Hartorm.
