Query: SHAW Researcher: XXXX Email:bbpittillo@sbcglobal.net Date Posted: 25 August 2004 I've found a branch of my family living in Ostego County, New York early 1800s.
They are listed in the "Early Settlers of New York, Volume 2, October 1939,
Records of First Presbyterian Church, Worcester, page 218 and 249. On page
218 I find "1804 Shaw, Thirza: 1807 William." Page 249 lists " Shaw, Thirza
- Adoniram, Thirza, Louisa, 1804: Mariah, 1805. William - William, 1808: Stephen
Stimpson, 1810." This is the only record I have of this family living in Ostego County.
By 1823 they were living in St. Genevieve Co. Missouri and around 1830 were
living in Lawrence County, Arkansas. I'm interested in contact from any Shaw
family researchers having a connection to Ostego County. Thank you

Query: SHELLMAN Researcher: Norma Clark Email:norma33@dmcom.net Date Posted: 07 Feb 05 I am doing the genealogy on the above and have come to a standstill.
I have information from the Huntington Library with an article about
Cornelius Shellman, who was my gggrandfather and an incident at the
Presbyterian Church, Oneonta and we found him buried in back of that
church. The article goes on about him coming to the church and offered
to help dispose of a bell which was to be sold to the Clarksville Church
society and he was going to remove it from the Presb. church. The bell
fell and he was instantly killed. Would like to know where I could
obtain anymore information on this as the article just lists him as Mr.
Shellman . The minister there at the time was Rev. Joseph Paddock. Time
frame is Nov. 10, 1848. , that is what is on his stone in the cemetery.
The only date in the article was toward the bottom, it states that several
years later (1850) upon the payment to him the society paid him $150.
If you have any suggestions would appreciate hearing from you. Cornleius
had a daughter Eudora Beams who is buried in the Glenwood Cemetery, also
was related to Aris M Shellman who lived on 42 Ford Ave. and Thomas Shellman
who died in Franklin.

Query: SOUTHARD/SUTHERLAND Researcher: Dana DeZiel Email:danad@visi.com Date Posted: 05 November 2003 I am writing a history paper about a Otsego county resident who moved to MN
and became a prominent doctor and a pioneer of Anoka County society. Her father was Soloman Wesley Southard and mother Amanda Sutherland. Amanda,
I believe, was buried at Elk Creek Cemetary according to what I can piece
together from the information on the cemetary. Amanda's father was Isaac
Sutherland. There is a Celitte Sutherland buried at Elk Creek also, could
this be Amanda's mother? I am having a really hard time researching this family.

Wesley is on the census records for 1850 with the Smith Southerland family.
Wesley, Amanda and Flora are all on the 1860 Census records. Any additional information that anyone could find would be extremely helpful.


Surnames: SPICER/WALKER Researcher: Barbara Sherman Email:sherman13@military.com Date Posted: 6 June 2003 I am looking for information on a Lucy Spicer (my gg grandmother), born abt
1827. I believe the Lucy I am looking for was the daughter of Erastus and
Dolly Hawkes Spicer of Richfield, Otsego Co, NY. My grandfather was Joseph Benson Lyon. His father was Frank P. Lyon and
Frank's mother was Laura Lucena Walker. Laura Walker was the daughter of
Galutia and Lucy (Spicer?) Walker who appear on the 1860 Census for Exeter,
Otsego, NY. I have been told that my gg grandmother was Lucy Spicer; but I have not
been able to prove it. The reason I believe that this Lucy is the person
I am looking for is because she had a brother named Joseph Benson Spicer,
born 16 Jul 1832 in Plainfield, Otsego, NY. I have to think there is a
connection because of the name Joseph Benson, which was passed on to Lucy's
grandson, my grandfather. Anyone having any information on Lucy's marriage to Galutia Walker that would prove this information, please let me know. If this proves to be my missing link, I have
tons of information to share.

Thank you.

Query:SWARTOUT/SWARTOUT Researcher: Ruth Jordan Thoden Email:RThoden@aol.com Date Posted: 3 Nov 2004 Seeking parents of JOHN JORDAN born 6 Mar 1764 where I know not. He died
26 Jan 1850 Pike, Wyoming Co, NY, but buried in family lot in Friendship,
Allegany Co., NY.

He married 15 Sep 1785 probably in or near Goshen, Orange Co., NY Julia
SWARTOUT born 18 Nov 1769 daughter of Jacobus SWARTOUT who before and during
the Revolution lived in Sugar Loaf which is now in town of Chester, Orange Co.,
NY but then in town of Warwick, Orange Co., NY.

Following children born to John and Julia:
Michael 1786 in Orange Co;
William 1788;
Jesse 1790;
James 1791;
hn 1792;
Andrew; 1795;
Betsey 1797;
Isaiah 1799;
Sally (Patty) 1801;
JACOB 1803;
Julia Margaret 1805;

Unnamed son 1807 at which time Julia probably died because she does not
appear in 1810 census.

John/Julia do not appear in the 1790 census of NYS in their own home with two
sons nor have I found them in PA, NJ or any N.E. state.

By 1800, JORDAN family residing in Cherry Valley, Otsego Co., NY. From there, Michael, William and Jesse settled in and died in Steuben Co.
James and John settled town of Cuba, Allegany Co., NY; Isaiah, after living
with his brother, Michael in Steuben Co., migrated on to Allegany Co and he
and brothers Andrew and JACOB settled in town of Wirt of Allegany Co., NY.

Betsey (Elizabeth) Jordan married Sebastion WELLER and lived in Canajoharie, Montgomery Co., NY. Sally married John DYGERT and lived in Montgomery Co, NY. Julia Margaret married Charles PHELPS, migrated to Pike, Wyoming Co. and it was at her home that JOHN died in 1850.

In 1840, JOHN JORDAN is still residing at Cherry Valley but by 1848 has migrated to town of Wirt and because he died before 1850 census was taken, it has been family tradition that he lived with his son, JACOB, but his will probate states he died at home of his daughter in Wyoming Co.

ANY help would be appreciate on these above mentioned families....


Query: SWARTS/BLANCHARD Researcher: Peggy Bollenbaugh Email:ptbollen@mindspring.com Date Posted: 04 September 2004 I recently came across some info regarding Simon Swarts b. 1804 in Delaware
Co., NY. It looks like his father might be a Lawrence Swart from Oneonta,
Ostego Co., NY. This information came from excerpts in a book by the name
of "A History of Oneonta, from its earliest settlement to the present time",
by Dudley M. Campbell of Oneonta, NY. Would anyone have any information
about this? Does the book mention a relationship between Lawrence & Simon?
Simon married Polly Blanchard, d/o James Blanchard & Mary Wolfe, abt 1825 in Delaware Co. This people are a major road block, so I would appreciate any help. Thank you and Good Hunting,
