Query: PARKER/DAVIS Researcher: Do-lores Stafford Email:scarlett77@hotmail.com Date Posted: 2 Apr 2006 " Am searching for information on the parents of Obediah Parker, born 1827
in Otsego County, N.Y. One site lists them as Benjamin F. Parker and Mary Davis.
The LDS site has his parents listed as George and Lena Parker.

Would very much appreciate any help with this matter.


Query:PARKER/BREWSTER 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
much 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 Athens 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

Surnames: PARKER Researcher: Robert Gardner Email:bgardner@rconnect.com Date Posted: 26 April 2003 I am searching for records of Elisha Parker Gardner, my great, great grandfather,
who was born in Otego, Otsego County, New York, on December 7, 1808. I have
that information from my father, Edward Burton Gardner, who was born, lived and
died in LaValle, Wisconsin, my hometown. What I am looking for is the names of
E.P. Gardner's father and mother and where they came from. I have searched
periodically for the last number of years and come up empty. I am guessing
that a John Gardner or a Stanley (?) Gardner might be his father, for I have
seen their names in that county's records. Where do I go from here? I would like to know for sure if the GARDNER side
immigrated from England or another country and from what area in that country. If you can give me direction, I would sincerely appreciate it.

Jerram and Annie Emily Beach Porter Researcher: Tony Porter Email:gporter1@stny.rr.com Date Posted: 4 March 2006 We are looking for any information that anyone might have about these people.
William was born in the town of Butternuts, Gilbertsville, Otsego County 1850
son of William and Ann Dean Porter. William and Ann came to this country from
England around 1849-1850 He later moved to Kemptville, Ontario Canada and married
JuliaAnn Fawcett. Cencus records show Julia living with the Thomas Freer family,
as a servant, who were neighbors of William and Ann. Date of marriage and Julia's
death are unknown. William passed away in April 1915 and is buried in Kemptville
Public Cemetery. He remarried Annie Emily Beach on September 21, 1896 in Kemptville
Canada. We have no information after 1915. We know that William and Julia had
the following children, all born in Kemptville Canada and that they did not stay
there through adulthood

1. Mary Charlotte (Rosena) Porter was born October 15, 1873 and married John
Edward Hasserd on January 19, 1898

Mary Mrytle Porter and after her death married Lena Foster. Frank was my grandfather
4. Blanche Porter born February 12, 1885 married Edward Doolittle. The 1910
Census shows them living in the Utica/Rome area with sons Cecil and Harold.
Cecil later lived with Thomas and census shows Harold being adopted, so we
believe that both Blanche and Edward passed away between 1910 and 1920.

If anyone has any information on our family we would love to hear from you.

My mother Helen PURPLE, was born 20 Dec 1904 in Columbia Center, Otsego County, NY. Her father, Wesley PURPLE, was born in 1852 and died in 1936. At least those are the dates on his grave marker in the Schuyler Lake Cemetery in Schuyler Lake, Otsego County, NY. I know he lived in Schuyler Lake as I lived with them for a while and took a picture of the old house on a recent trip there. My mother was the second of four children of a second marriage. Gramps first wife, Cora L. ???, died in 1900 and is buried with Wesley. Nellie HAGGERTY (no dates) is my grandmother. Her father was LaMott HAGGERTY (no dates) and her mother was Maria KEELER (no dates). I do not know where I came up with the date of 1840 for Lavel PURPLE. I have been told he was a sailor and died at sea leaving Evalina a widow.
