About 1796, John DENSMORE, Revolutionary War soldier, came to Richfield Springs area of Otsego County, from Massachusetts, with his three daughters and two sons, John Jr., and Eliphalet. Daughter Susan was married to Isaac SMITH, Sophia to John WOODBURY, and a third daughter to Benjamin TUCKERMAN. John DENSMORE, John DENSMORE JR., Eliphalet DENSMORE, Isaac SMITH, and Benjamin TUCKERMAN are found in the 1800 NY census. The 1810 census has E. DENSMORE and E. DENSMORE JR., and the 1820 census has John DENSMORE (probably JR.) I am seeking death dates for John DENSMORE SR. and wife Elizabeth AMOS, as well as information on any other descendants. Note that DENSMORE has been spelled "DUNSMOOR", "DINSMORE", "DINSMOOR", as well.

About 1808, Nathan BROWN, b. 1 Dec. 1801 in RI, came to Otsego County, with his parents and six older siblings. His father, drowned in the Unadilla River about 1814, was married to Anna COOPER, reportedly related to COOPERS of Cooperstown and John Hancock. At the age of 25, about 1826, Nathan married Lydia BUTTS, and they had 4 children before leaving for Wayne Co. MI, September 5, 1835. While in Otsego County, Nathan was engaged in the manufacture of dairy ware. The preceding information comes from a Biographical Sketch found in the 1876 Illustrated Historical Atlas of Wayne Co. Michigan. I believe one of Nathan and Lydia's children was my gggrandfather Perrin BROWN, b. abt 1820 NY. Another child was probably Lester R. BROWN, referred to as "Uncle Lester" by my grandmother, Perrin's grandaughter. I am seeking the name of Nathan's father, proof that Perrin is one of his children, and any other information on this family.

Would like to hear from anyone researching JENNINGS in NYS: Joannah JENNINGS born 30 Dec 1792 probably in New York State; died 30 May 1872 town of New Hudson, Allegany Co., NY. She married 5 Oct 1815 to Benjamin Kingsbury in Cherry Valley, Otsego Co., NY. Her mother's name may have been Hannah and she definitely had a sister Hannah Jennings who attested to the marriage of Joannah to Benjamin Kingsbury when Joannah made application for widow's pension because Benjamin had served in War of 1812. Joannah died at home of her son, Daniel, but she lived her adult life in town of Rushford, Allegany Co., NY where she and husband migrated. She is buried Hardy Corner's cemetery at Rushford. She is my gg- grandmother. Sure would like to hear from you.
