I am searching for a Malinda, married Peter Murgittroyd that came from Otsego Co. Because her children had unusal names, while searching in Otesgo, I began wondering if they weren't family names. Perhaps you could help me narrow the search. They had a son Deloss, one Lorenzo Dow, a Nicholas, an Amenzo, a Monroe, a Marinda, etc. Deloss had daughter Carolyn or Caroline that married Henry Breed of Oswego Co. They all ended up in Volney there. I saw a Caroline Breed (Mrs.) but the date didn't match. Her death occurred in Sept. 1889, 3 weeks after my grandfather was born. They may have been Quakers, many Breeds were. She was b. in 1840, but I don't know where. Peter lived in herkimer Co. at one point, near the border. I saw Smiths with that name and fullers. They were related to Fullers and I have a cousin Morris Fuller. I saw quite a few Morris' also. I would love it if you could help me clear up this mystrey!

Looking for the deathdate of Yannetje (Jane) Schoonmaker Winne, b. circa 1765, wife of Coenradt Winne of Otsego County. Also burial site for Yannetje, which I assume is Sharon Springs, Otsego County. If anyone knows of a list showing the burials in the Sharon Springs cemeteries, I would like very much to hear from you. This couple were supposedly faithful members of the Methodist Episcolpal Church in Cherry Valley - so if anyone knows of a membership list of that church for the period 1809-1860, I would love to hear from you. Guess you might say, I'm having trouble proving that these ancestors lived and died in Otsego County as stated in the Jefferson County, N. Y. histories.

A few years ago I ran across two marr. certs at a garage sale. Since they were from Otsego and Albany counties I bought them. I would like to find someone who is related to these families. i would only ask in return that I be reimbursed for org. cost and shipping. These are not the little certified ones these are the big ones from the church(I think). Here are the people on them: Mr. William Linacra of Albany and Miss. Amelia A Hallet of Oneonta marr. July 16, 1893 at the Baptist Church in Oneonta. Mr. George Linacre of Albany and Miss Satie Shaw of Watervielt marr. Sept 14, 1898 at the South Baptist Church of Troy.
