- Query: SHAW Researcher: XXXX Email:firstname.lastname@example.org 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,

- Query: SHELLMAN Researcher: Norma Clark Email:firstname.lastname@example.org 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:firstname.lastname@example.org 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:email@example.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.
Am Looking for connections to anyone with the name SERGENT/SERGEANT/SARGENT. My gggg grandfather, Thomas Sergeant m, Sarah SISSON DEFOREST in 1826. I think the date may be an error, because all their children were b, before 1826-unless Thomas had a first wife. Sarah was previously married.. They were: John (twin to James) b. 1802 m. Isabelle JACOX in 1826> Otsego county, NY James(twin to John and my ggg grandfather) m Fanny HALE in 1824.> to Jefferson co, WI Lewis b. 1807 m. Mary "Polly" WENTWORTH . Cortland co, NY Elizabeth"Betsy" m Rufus COOPER in abt 1835> to Tioga co, NY Lucy Ann m Isaac MILLER in 1834.(Not Known where last residence was ) I have a Sergeant Family History of this family to 1908 and also a GEDCOM I will share. Would love to share all data with a long lost relative!
