Seeking information on a PETER LOBDELL who according to his daughter's death certificate was born in Cherry Valley, Otsego Co, NY. His daughter was born in 1827. So assume his birth would have been in late 1700s or early 1800s. He married a SARAH COX and I'm interested in learning anything about her family as well.
Mary Jane LOBDELL, their daughter born in 1827, was born in Wyoming county so by that date they would have left Otsego County. Can ANYONE help me with this? I'd like ANY information on ANY LOBDELL OR COX FAMILY in this time period. Many thanks. Ruth Jordan Thoden RuthThoden@aol.com
