I have a copy of a transcontinental RR travel guide with the flyleaf stamped:
"Library of M. M Bishop, Portlandville, NY, No. 108" Also, "Marvin M Bishop,
Portlandville, Otsego Co.; NY". A look at the LDS site shows a Marvin Bishop
of Milford, Otsego Co, NY in the 1880 census. He is 17 and the son of Catharin
Bishop. If he was the owner of this guide, he would have been in his early 20's
when he purchased the guide and traveled west. Can provide more info to anyone
researching or interested in this individual.

Her parents are allegedly Joseph BRACE, a Rev. War Patriot, and Lucy HAWLEY, whose
father is also a Rev. War Patriot. I have come across these two names in Otsego

of these families I would be very grateful. Joseph Brace(widow Lois Gardner) listed
Richfield, Otsego Co on his application for pension in 1833. Joseph Hawley (widow

Query:BREWSTER/PARKER Researcher: John S. Hoff Email: Snail Mail addy at bottom of query Date Posted: 24 Jan 05 My 3xG Grandfather, NATHAN BREWSTER (B: 12 Mar 1758 New Windsor, Orange Co., NY -
12 Mar 1842 Athens {later Morgan Co., OH) OH was a Patroit and served in the 4th
N.Y. Militia between 1778-1783 in New Windsor, and it appears that he might have
received "Bounty land" there in Otsego Co. in the mid-1790s for his military service,
which may have prompted his move there. He appears to have moved there as a batchelor
sometime in the mid-1790s, and there, at age 39, in 1797 in Butternuts Twp., Otsego
Co., NY, he (for the first time) married, a HANNAH PARKER (my 3x G Grandmother)(B:
1768 in somewhere "CT", per later Census) the 29 year old daughter of a neighbor,
REUBEN PARKER and HANNAH CHAPMAN PARKER, who are my 4xG Grandparents. REUBEN may
also have been a Patroit and recipient of "Bounty land" there for his Rev. War
service, where I assume he would have served in the Wallingford, CT Militia, if at
all. Both men appear as neighbors on the same page of the 1800 Otsego Co., Census
(on Page: 21a.gif).

REUBEN PARKER was born in on 12 Mar 1738 in Wallingford, New Haven Co., CT, the
son of JOHN PARKER, III (B: 1803 Wallingford, New Haven Co., NY) and a long line of
well-documented PARKERs residing in Wallingford for 5 generations. REUBEN's wife,
HANNAH CHAPMAN PARKER, was presumably born in Waterbury, New Haven Co., CT, about
1735-50. It is known (from LDS www.FamilySearch.com data) that she married REUBEN
PARKER there in Waterbury, CT, on 10 Dec 1764. However, her other family connections,
parentage and origins, date of birth and death, and exact burial location data are
unknown to me: only her name and the date of her marriage seem available anywhere
on-line. HANNAH PARKER, the daughter who flowed from that PARKER-CHAPMAN marriage
might have been an 'only child', in that no other children are shown to the Parker
parents in the 1800 Butternuts Twp. Census. However, she was age 29 at the time
of the marriage in 1797, and other younger children could have already have flown
the nest by that time. Although by 1810, only NATHAN BREWSTER and wife, HANNAH
PARKER BREWSTER, family appear on the Otsego 1810 Census (Pg 155.gif). The REUBEN
PARKER Family disappears. So, either both PARKERS had either died by 1810, or
simply sold or abandoned their property and moved-on West, as did so many. In that
REUBEN PARKER may have been a CT Militia Patroit and Rev. War Veteran, his
thus-unknown grave site presumably there somewhere in Otsego Co., and date of death
are of great interest to me. If so, I would very mugh like to learn of his exact
burial site and grave markings. I have scrolled through every Otsego Co. Cemetery
cite listed on your wonderful on-line Web site in an effort to find him, but I found
no reference to either a REUBEN PARKER or HANNAH CHAPMAN PARKER (who presumably would
also have died sometime between 1800-1810). By 1800, given his birth in 1738, he
would have by then have been at least age 62, so by 1810, he would have been a very
elderly age 72. So, it is possible (and likely probable) that by 1810, he may have
died and is buried there somewhere in Otsego Co. There is no elderly female member
of the BREWSTER household shown on the 1810 census, so the widowed mother of wife
HANNAH PARKER BREWSTER does not appear to have "moved-in" with, or have been
taken-in by the daughter's family after the presumed death of the husband, REUBEN
PARKER, before 1810: There are, in fact, no Parkers shown residing in Butternuts
Twp. by 1810 (according to the Census data). So, either they BOTH moved, or they
BOTH died by 1810. I have lost track of them completely after the 1800 Census there.

The pioneering BREWSTER Family appear to have had a happpy and fruitful time
together there in Butternuts Twp., and by the time of the 1800 Census - following
their 1797 marriage, they had two children: with one son and one daughter showing.
By the 1810 Census, they had 2 sons and 4 daughters under the age of 13. One of
these was my 2x great frandmother, MARTHA BREWSTER, born there on 28 Jul 1802.
Her family moved on in 1817 to Marietta, Washington Co., OH, and in 1824 in the
home of her parents, she married my 2xGreatgrandfather, POWELL HOFF (13 Aug 1801
Pr. William Co., VA -6 May 1870 Dallas Co., IA). She lived to age 90, dying on
27 Jan 1892 in Dallas Co., IA, after having produced 12 childern.

I would like to know the exact location of the farms/residences of NATHAN
BREWSTER and REUBEN PARKER there in Butternuts Twp. Is there a "Plat Book" or
some land issuing document or a legal description conveving the land to them that
might help pin-point the exact location of their property/farms by a legal description
or on a map? Also, might there be some central record of the burial of a Rev. War
Vets in the County that might show the grave site of REUBEN PARKER, if in fact he
was a REv. War Vet & did die and was buried there in Otsego Co. before 1810?

By the 1817, the BREWSTER Family had had 8 children, and had relocated from
Butternuts Twp., Otsego Co., NY to Marietta, Washington Co., OH, thus ending my
family's early pioneering nexus with Butternuts Twp., and Otsego Co., NY

In Athens Co., OH in 1832, aging and infirm, Rev. War Vet. and early former
Otsego Co. pioneer, NATHAN BREWSTER, applied for and received a paltry Federal pension
($20/year) for his Rev. War service. Two months ago I obtained complete copies of
these papers from the U. S. Archives documenting his fascinating military service.
It included his service under Generals Washington and Benedict Arnold at West Point,
placing the fameous "blocking chain" across the Hudson blocking the British fleet,
and digging Fortificatin No. 3 at West Point. He died somewhere in Athens (later
subdivided into Morgan Co.), OH on 21 Mar 1842. His wife, HANNAH PARKER BREWSTER,
also died there in Ahens Co., OH in 1855.

So, that is the story of two early pioneering Otsego Families who joined the
migration from the East Coast in the 1600-1700s, where they were huddled closely in
sea coast colonial villages and rivers, and moved west after the Revolution to the
rough and dangerous frontier, and on ever-further westward into the heart of the
Continent as cheap and abundant farming land became available.

I am eager to try to establish a better nexus with Otsego Co. during the time
my family and direct forebears resided there. If anyone is able to further help
identify the BREWSTER/PARKER Family connection with Butternuts Twp., and Otsego Co.,
I am most interested in making contact. Please feel free to republish some or all
of this in your Message Board link. Anyone is free to contact me directly @

Burns....looking for the parents of Jonathan Burns born 1773 in Otsego County. Father was an English immigrant but must have been in the area early. Jonathan was married to Anna Chase in Saratoga and then removed to NE Pennsylvania. There could be a Hale connection.

I am looking for information on Amos Burk(e), born in Otsego County in 1811, and married in 1830 to Catherine Allen who was born in Cooperstown in 1815. Amos' father was said to have been a Seaman who was lost at sea, and I'm not sure what happened to his mother. I believe he was either adopted, or grew up with relatives. I am trying to find out Amos' parents' names as well as Catherine's, and also if Amos had any siblings.
