Current Query Post

From: Harry Merrihew
My ancestor David Merrihew was taxed in the Beekman Patent until 1768 and I had found no reference to him until 1786 when he was in Albany County.  I recently found an obituary record for one of his sons which said the son was born in Long Island on August 22, 1774 and that he moved from Long Island with his parents as child.  I am looking for any information on the Merrihew family on Long Island in this timeframe.  I have checked the 1776 census for Suffolk County with no luck and David does not appear in Revolutionary War records.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for any and all information on my 4th great-grandparents, Ephraim and Catharina/Katrin Baker.  Ephraim Baker was born about 1750 perhaps in the Long Island, New York area.  He married Catharina/Katrin unknown before June of 1775.  In June of 1775, they purchased land in Rochester, Ulster, New York.  Ephraim’s will was probated on May 8, 1829 in Middletown, Delaware, New York.  In 1829 he and Catharina had 10 living children: Catharina, Frederick, Henry, Ann, James S. Benjamin, Sally, Ephraim, William and Mary.  Ephraim’s wife, Catharina was still living.
 
I am trying to locate the names of Ephraim’s parents and the maiden name of Catharina.
Thanks for any help you can provide

I am looking for the death and burial of my Uncle, Sydney Thomas Wayman, who was born in 1869 in London England.  I know little about him, but it seems that in his old age he lived with his granddaughter [name unknown] who was a doctor, on Long Island.  This is an incredible long shot, I know.  I do know that he was living in April 1946 as he appears on an Arrival list at Laguardia Airport, NY.

I like to know who “and others” were in the Midwout  patent of Stuyvesant to Jan Snediker, Arent van Hatten and Johann Megapolensis .  Does that mean the original document (which I believe has been lost probably to the English about 1684) said “and others” or does this mean the transcribed version simply did not list all names and concluded with “and others”?
Certanly one of the “and others” would be Thomas Swartenhout who actually had a letters patent for 116 acres in 1651.  I would appreciate any details about the receivers of this patent or individual patents for Midwout 1651/52.

I am seeking the burial place of the following:
 Mortimer B. Ruggles, died in St. Luke's Hospital, May 8, 1902. On his death certificate the place of burial says only; "Islip, L. I.". I have tried every cemetery I could locate and find nothing.
Does anyone have any ideas?  Many thanks for your kind assistance.

Good evening.  I am in El Paso, Texas.  Only recently did I discover your Long Island site.  I must say - IT IS FABULOUS!
   My query possibly cannot be responded to.
   I was born in Wurtsboro, NY (Sul Co).  Due to family problems, my mother (Divorced of separated), farmed me out to various families so that she could make a go at life with limited responsibilities. 
   One place I remember was in Jamaica, LI.  She put me with a family by the name of WALLENSTEIN (Various spellings).  This was around 1935.  I don't recall their address since I was too young to remember. 
   My mother's maiden name was ROSENCRANS. 
   I remember a farm and bording house situation near Liberty - the DOMBECKS (Various spelling), where people from New York City would visit on vacation during the summer.  I sincerely believe that the Wallensteins visited this farm and that is how my mother became acquainted with them. 
   Genealogically I am interested in the Wallensteins - what possible reason could there be for my mother to place me with them. 
   I think they were Jewish?????
   Thank you Everett Thorpe, Jr. El Paso, TX

Samuel's parents were James Beatty and Elizabeth Rider (or Ryder) of Bayville, NY. I am related directly to James' line through his brother William Beatty, who is my great-great grandfather.

My great great grandfather, Frederick Jaeger, and another relative, Anthon Muller, together purchased Lots 4561-4564 in the Lutheran All Faiths Cemetery in Middle Village, NY. The cemetery sent me a list of the 30 people buried there sometime ago and I have been trying ever since to get there (from Georgia) to transcribe the information on the stones in these 30 plots. Among the people buried there are my gg grandfather, my great grandparents and other family members, all named Muller or Jaeger except for a few I cannot identify.
I will be happy to pay reasonable expenses if someone can visit the cemetery for me and gather whatever information is available. Perhaps by seeing how the graves are grouped, I can begin to identify some of those I do not know and, of course, I hope to gain further insight from the information on the stones themselves. If it is convenient, I would also appreciate any photos of these graves, but this is a secondary need.
Thank you for your help.

I am looking for information involving the Smith family of Hempstead, Long Island, NY. My Great-Great Grandmother was Harriet Smith (1840-1875) who married Benjamin Franklin Sammis (1833-1881) on February 28, 1858. While doing family research at the Long Island Studies Institute, I ran across a document naming Margaret Smith the executrix of the will of Samuel B Smith. In that document all of Harriet and Benjamin's children are named along with Stephen C Smith, George A Smith and Wesley Smith. I am looking for the link between Harriet Smith Sammis and Samuel B Smith. I have checked the Census reports with no luck. In Greenfield Cemetery near Hempstead the two family plots (Smith and Sammis) are adjacent to each other although Samuel B Smith is not in the Smith plot. It would be easy to assume (a no-no for genealogists) that Samuel B Smith is Harriet's father or brother. Does anyone have information on Samuel B Smith and/or Harriet Smith Sammis of Hempstead? I am also looking for any further info on the Smith family of Hempstead. Any help would truly be appreciated.

   I am searching for information on Long Island concerning my ancestor, Musco Wright, who was in the First Battallion of Pennsylvania Loyalists in the King's American Regiment during the Revolutionary War. He was commanded by Col. William Allen and Capt. Joseph Swift. He spent most of the Revolutionary War in Pensacola, Florida with the British. He survived the Battle of Pensacola, Florida ( Mar. 9-May 8, 1781 ).Musco's regiment was allowed to go to Long Island, New York until the war was officially over.
    Their ship arrived in New York on July 23, 1781. The rest of their garrison had arrived a week before. All of the troops were posted to Newtown, Long Island, where they would remain as prisoners on parole for exactly a year. This inactivity would last until July 24, 1782, when the Pensacola survivors were officially exchanged and allowed to do duty. Musco Wright's rank was changed from private to corporal.
    The corps embarked on board the " Bridgewater " for River Saint John in Canada on Sept. 12, 1783. According to muster rolls, Musco Wright was in Guanis, Newtown, and Yellow Hook on Long Island in New York.
    Also with him when he came to Long Island was his wife, Mary ( maiden name unknown ) and 3 of their children ( names unknown ) who had followed him to Pensacola, Florida during the war while he was stationed there. Also in his unit was his friend, William Grier, and his wife and children.
    Could you check your Loyalist resources for any information concerning Musco Wright and his wife and children on Long Island in Newtown for the time period of 1781 - 1783, inclusive? I would be happy to pay all costs involved.    Jean Mayo   P.O. Box 566   Stratham, N.H. 03885.

One of may ancestors Cornelis Monnee immigrated to the USA in 1846. After a few years living in Manhattan he moves to Amityville (then called Huntington) where he was buried in 1866 on the Oakwood Corporation Cemetery.  In his life he wrote letters home to his family in Holland. In one of these letters (dated around 1856) he wrote the following story: 

[… We bought a oil-refinery that costs us 600 dollars. We now live 20 hours away from New York close to the sea. This oil is not known in Holland. It is made from a wild fruit that grows in the forest nearby. We have black people, so-called Negros, that gather them for us. We sell the oil in New York for 5 dollars a pound….]

Can anybody tell me what kind of oil this might be?

Hello, good people at Long Island Genealogy 
First, hearty congratulations on a splendid website.
Re your good commentary on Gardiner's Island, is the JOHN GARDINER you mention the 17thC London merchant, John Gardiner, who was active in the English Crown's West India trade & also Warden of the Merchant-Venturers in 1626? Might you have a line on THAT particular John Gardiner, if he's NOT 'your' John Gardiner? If this is the same man, is your JG a Londoner who also traveled to Africa in the mid-17thC, either as a merchant / privateer or in some official capacity for the Court of Charles II? Have you any information at all on these matters, please? (This is part of a big & complex research project of mine.)

I am looking for a birth record for my great grandmother born August 1847 on Long Island.  Her parents are Joseph and Susannah (Susan Cook) WALLIN.  Her parents/siblings came to New York (Brooklyn) ca Aug. 1845 from England.   She went by Carrie M. Wallin, but her name may have been Caroline or Clara originally.   The history goes she was orphaned by both parents and she and her siblings were sent to live with others.  Carrie & Mary Ann lived in Cayuga Co. NY for awhile.  They may have been put on an orphan train to go West (western NY).  Are there records of orphanages or societies on Long Island for the 1840's-1850's?  IN 1900 Census she lists place of birth as "Long Island" and this has been the tradition in our history.
Would there be a birth record for her anywhere?  Her siblings (all b. England) included: 
John T. Walling who died in Napa, CA in 1920--joined Army & served in Union during Civil War, I have all history of him.
Mary Ann Wallin who m. Horace John Christian of Mentyz, Cayuga Co., NY--I have all her history.
Richard Wallin (might have added a "g"), served in Military during or before Civil War.  Nothing more known.
Susan Wallin, nothing more known, age 11 in 1845.
Thomas Wallin or Walling, age 4 in 1845, nothing more known.

    I am looking for background information on a Moses Reeves born New York about 1810 (he was age 40 in 1850 census of Cayuga County, NY, Town of Ledyard). He had a wife Susan age 41; sons Nelson <O> age 19; Moses age 17 and two daughters Susan age 12 and Margaret aged 11.  I have found this family in 1860 and 1870 in Lansing, Tompkins County, NY and Candor in Tioga County.  How is Moses connected to Experience (---) (Woolley) Brown, wife of Ebenezer Brown?  Experience died in Tompkins Co. 25 March 1848, had a dau. Calista who md. Charles N. Wager.  The mother of Charles N. Wager was a (Miss) Reeves; the father of Charles was Andrew Wager.  The Moses  Reeves connection came up  in the probate abstraction:  Dianna Wooley, a daughter of Experience Brown declines Adm. In favor of Moses Reeves, of Ledyard, (Tioga County is shown but it should be Cayuga Co.), NY, a creditor.
    I have not found them in the Reeve(s) book by Baker which I used for my known Reeve line;  in checking the Reeves names listed on the Long Island web-site, I feel I am in the right neighborhood.  Perhaps these Reeves were “lost” when they moved “West” to  the Finger Lakes area ? Also found in Tompkins County (cemetery) is  a Mehitable Reeves, who was age 87 when she died Aug 27, 1850.  It has been suggested by earlier research that perhaps Experience had a sister Patience; I found  a Patience  married to a Francis  Woolley .  “Mehettable Reaves” is living with them although Patience is only 49 whereas “Mahettable” is 87.
    How do any of them tie into Ms. Reeves who md. my Andrew Wager and is the mother of Charles N. Wager and siblings?

Y.,  His name is JOHN WAY......Jamaica bay is a regionally significant resource for fish and wildlife, it is a frequent subject of research and management of its wildlife, fisheries, waters and marshes. Much is under the National Park System's Gateway National Recreation Area and even some of it's wetland and upland areas are now a part of the John F. Kennedy International Airport. However the picture was much different in January of 1754. That year was an unusually warm an pleasant period until Monday the 21st about noon when a violent gale set in from the north-west and the temperture changed to piercing cold. Eight Men were cought out in this storm with a conoe and an eight man periauger clamming in Jamaica Bay, evening came and they had not returned and the Anxiety of their friends and familys were  running high as the weather did not warm until Friday afternoon so the search effert could be made....The periauger was discovered driven on an island of sedge where the frozen bodies of SAMUEL LEVERICH, AMOS ROBERTS, and great grandson's of Foulk Davis:  WILLIAM SALLIER III AND THOMAS SALLIER of Newtown were found, one frozen setting at the tiller in an upright position. It was not until the next Sabbath  that the canoe was recovered with the bodies of a servant-man employed by JOHN WAY and two slaves belonging to JOHN WAY and one slave belonging to JOHN BURROUGHS...................submitted by: Gerald Dee Salyer

Christopher Foster and Wife Frances <Stevens>
I have just finished going over all of my information on the Foster family connected to my Sayre family and nowhere have I found the surname for Frances  (<Stevens>), except in the Ancestral File.  Of course, with no source documentation unless one can view the film with the charts/information on it (I cannot), it is up for questioning:  how valid is this surname for Frances; what source(s) used?  Has anyone been able to check this out in parish registers in England or other records?  A will, perhaps?  Anything?  Have we found out for sure where in England Christopher was born – information I have by Banks says he came from Ewell Parish, Surrey, England – but of course, that does not mean that is where he was born or was residing at the time of emigration.  (The marriage given on the Ancestral File is 24 Dec 1628, in Ewell, Surrey).  Were the parents of Frances a Jerome Stevens and wife Alice (---)? Unfortunately, I am out of the loop for new findings that may be in libraries because I no longer have access to  them where I live, so wondering if something new has come to light since my first go-around with these ancestors several years ago. ?

Hi:  My name is Jerri Jopling.  I can fill in a little more of the Woodhull line.  My grandmother was Helen Wooodhull, daughter of Benjamin Nelson Woodhull.  She married Harvey Charles Jopling.  They had three boys William, Richard and Gary.  My father is Richard Jopling.  He was born in 1934.  I don’t know when my Uncle Gary was born.  My grandmother, Helen, died in childbirth around the time that my father was 11 years old.  She and the baby both died.  The baby was a girl named Juanita I believe.  They are both buried together in Champion, Alberta
Is there any chance anyone would be able to fill in the Jopling side for me?  I believe my grandfather’s father was named Thomas Ralph Jopling or Ralph Thomas Jopling.  They emigrated to Canada from North Dakota.  That is about all I know.  I was pleasantly surprised to find all of the Woodhull information going so far back.  Oh, also – my Aunt Florence Woodhull I think died in the early 1970’s.  I believe she served in the US Army as a nurse during World War II.  My Uncle Arthur (Edwin Arthur Forrestt Woodhull) was a house painter living in Los Angeles, California.  He came to stay with us in Visalia, CA for a little while.  He died I believe in the 1970’s as well.  I’m not sure when Aunt Gladys died ( and maybe she hasn’t – I assume so though).  I believe she was living in Cardston, Alberta.
Thanks,Jerri A. Jopling

Mr. Blydenburgh has a daughter and 3 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren who live in North Carolina.

I am 35 years old and do not know why I have just started this search. I realize that, if living, my grandfather would be near 80, and my desire would be to communicate with him before it's too late. Our family is not looking to disrupt, only to let him know that our father/grandfather has something else to be proud of. I have found a Richard W Blydenburgh with residences in Sayville, NY and Bayport, NY, but do not want to assume anything.

Looking for information on Francis Drake and Phebe Vail married 1723 in Southold, Suffolk Co. and their family. I am also interested in Richard Drake of Southold and how he might connect to this family. I am researching Francis Drake of Blooming Grove, Orange Co., NY. He had an Aunt Abigail Parshall and a brother Joshua. He was born ca 1735-40 and appears to have migrated to Orange Co. from Long Island between 1755-1776. He is listed as a son of Joseph Drake of Orange Co. in the book "Drake Genealogy in the line of Samuel Drake of Lower Smithfield Township, Northampton Co., PA" by Lillian Drake Avery but DNA testing has proved that he did not belong to this "Dutch Drake" line found in Orange and Sullivan Co., New York. Currently, there are three Drake lines that are very closely related to Francis Drake of Blooming Groove. One line is Francis Drake of Dansville, Steuben Co., NY who married Betsey Elizabeth Seeley in 1809. In letters written 1880, it is claimed that his father was Francis Drake who had the following children: Francis, Joshua, Samuel, Julia, Sally, Betsey, Catherine, Jemima and Peter. The second family is Francis P. Drake born 1801 who married Mary Ann Carpenter in Tompkins Co.late 1820's and migrated through Ohio and settling in Wood Co., WV by 1849. The other line is descended directly from Francis Drake of Blooming Grove through his son, Francis who Anna Corwin in Orange Co. and lived in Lansing, Tompkins Co. The names Francis, Richard, and John are carried in all of these three Drake family lines. Any info or lead greatly appreciated!

As a child growing up on Long Island in the 1950's, I remember learning a poem, I think it was called "Thirteen Tribes", I don't recall the author. It begins:
"Thirteen tribes of common stock Peopled this isle called Paumanok (sp?) Before the white man came along And took it over for a song."
It then goes on to describe each tribe. I have tried every search engine I can think of with no success. I'm not sure this is an appropriate question to even ask this group, but since your site has a considerable amount of info on the Native Americans of Long Island, I thought I'd give it a try.

I am looking for information about the Thomas/William Jackson that married Mary Ann Cheesman 07 March 1780. These people are my 5th g-grandparents. They lived in Gloucester County, New Jersey and he died there in 1796. But, since his wife's family is from the Hempstead/Oyster Bay area I thought that I might post a query here. She is the daughter of Peter C. Cheesman and Ann Ellis. Would be willing to share information with anyone that would be a part of this family.

My name is Bob Sammis and I am working on a family tree/history. I am looking for information on members of the Chichester family who were married to Sammis's. Abner Chichester, son of Eliphalet and Mary Nostrand Chichester, was married to Iantha Sammis. Abner was born Nov 11, 1791 in Huntington, NY and died Sept 23, 1862. Iantha was born May 4, 1794 and died on her 25th birthday in 1819. Does anyone know who her parents were and/or if this couple had any children? I also need the first name and any family history of a  Chichester who was married to Sarah Whitman, who also was at one time married to David Sammis. Estimated birth of Sarah is about 1710-1715. Finally, does anyone have any information on Ebenezer Chichester who was married to Olivia Sammis, daughter of William Sammis and Sarah Conklin. He was born about 1788. Who were his parents? Did they have any children? Any help would truly be appreciated, Thanks, Bob Sammis

I am searching for my connection to the early Barteaus and Bartos that originated in the Huntington, L.I. area.  I have noticed that there is extensive information on your web pages for these families however I do not see any reference to my relatives.  My GGGrandfather was Simeon Barto.  He was reportedly born in Tioga Co., NY in or about 1816 and died there in 1872.  I have no information about his parents and am therefore unable to trace him back to the Barteaus and Bartos of Huntington, L.I.  There was another Barto, a Benjamin B. Barto that lived in the same vicinity of Tioga Co. and was approximately the same age.  He was born in 1812 and died in 1900.  I also cannot find any information about his parents so my thought are that they very likely were brothers.  There were a number of Bartos that arrived in this portion of Upstate NY in this time frame from Vermont.  If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

Hello, I was hoping that perhaps someone might have run across the name Humphrey.  William Humphrey was born in the Hemstead/Jamaica area of Long Island in 1704, son of Thomas and Elizabeth Clare Humphrey. I am trying to find out what happened to Thomas and Elizabeth, as I cannot locate when or where they died.  Also cannot find where WIlliam and his wife, Elizabeth Wiltse are buried. I do know they moved to Dutchess County New York, they had a son, Cornelius, who was born in 1735. Any help would be appreciated. We are considering a trip in the near future to Long Island, as we did not make it there two years ago when we were in New York. We are not very good at driving in big cities and will be looking for places to stay where we can take a bus into the city to do research. But we loved New York, and can't wait to return.

Tracing John D.(b.1858) to his father,James H.(b.1830) in Ohio and further back his father was James O. who came from New Jersey and settled in Auglaize Co, Ohio, probably in the 1820s.

BENJAMIN GOULD pre 1677-17??. John Roe sold 15 acres of land at Old Man's to John Franklyn in 1671. Benjamin Gould in turn, was buying some or all of the same land from J. Franklyn.
On Sept. 11, 1677, John Roe made a trade with Benjamin Gould--John would receive the land at Old Man's and Benjamin would receive 5 acres in Newtown and the promise of choice of 2 cows to be delivered in May.
The name Benjamin Gould next appears as a witness to Job Smith's will in 1715, then as registering ear marks in 1724, later as a constable.(Smithtown)
The time range gives room for 2 Benjamins and the fact that my Joseph was born in 1723 Smithown leads me to believe they are father and son.
There appears  a William Gould that perhaps can be a  brother of Joseph.
My Joseph lineage came from a family Bible and the above information is all I have found before the Bible information.

Looking for anyone that might know a little about Kings Park Hospital.  Specifically, if I were to send a request to Pilgrim for medical records, death certificates, procedures performed, and oddly enough, employee records, what can I expect in return?  Do they have documentation of experiments, autopsies and labotomies concerning specific individuals?  Do they have a record of where people were buried, or which funeral home may have handled a persons death?  It is alleged that my great grandmother Phalinia Mellisa Warren(1890-1931) passed in Kings Park Hospital from a heart attack, and "dropsy" (retaining water in the legs) and there is some mystery and question as to whether or not this is actually what happened.  The funny part is that her living children claim that she was sane and that she was actually an employee of Kings Park Hospital.  Anyone that might give me some insight as to whether or not employees were given free medical care, and what kind of records are still in existence please contact me.

I am putting together information for a documentary on Huntington's infamous Tar and feathering of Charles G. Kelsey. My hope is to speak to descendants of the major players in this story. For example, Charles Kelsey had two brothers, Henry and William and a sister Charlotte. Royal Sammis and Julia Smith (the girl Kelsey was supposedly in love with and the cause of his brutal end) were married in 1873 and resided in NYC. Did they have children? Who are they? Charles G. Kelsey also had a book of his poetry published before he was murdered called The Old Burying Hill. Any info on his poetry would be most helpful.
Julia Smith was a ward to Charlotte Oakley who was married to Gilbert Conklin Vandewater they lived on West Main St. and Spring Rd. Any info on their descendants???
There were hearings in Oyster Bay and/or Riverhead. Royal and Rudolf Sammis were found innocent on charges of assault and riot. And the murder of Charles Kelsey never made it to trial.
Any information on the aforementioned or any connections leads or thoughts would be most appreciated. For info that is used in the documentary, absolute discretion or prominent credit will be your choice. 
Thank you, thank you, thank you for any help. Jackie

I would like to know the maiden name of Sarah, wife of Nathaniel Terrel (b. abt 1797). She was born about 1810 and they were married about 1829.  A submission to the LDS website says that Nathaniel Terrell married Sarah Ann Coombs. This seems reasonable since these families lived in the same area. However, I can't find the documentation for this marriage and I would appreciate any help. According to the censuses of 1850 & 1860 they lived in Hempstead, LI. Their children were: Elizabeth (b.abt 1831), Nathaniel L (b.abt 1834; d. 2Jan 1901), Daniel (b. 1840; d. 1906), David (b. abt 1842), Elijah (b. 1846; d.1862) and Catherine (b. abt 1848).

How or where can I find information and/or photographs of a carriage building establishment at 77 7th Street, Long Island City believed to have been in business at least through the 1890's?  John J. Murphy was listed in the 1892 Directory as "carriage builder" and his son Thomas J. Murphy was "blacksmith" at least certainly in 1893 when his daughter was born and "painter" in 1899 when he died.  They worked and resided at 77 7th Street and 88 8th Street.  The Stony Brook Carriage Museum has no record of the carriages built by "Murphys"...so did the business have some other name?

Hello folks,
I'm trying to link my Reed ancestor to any family in colonial Long Island. He was a Loyalist who fled with his family over land to Ontario in the 1780's, early stories claim the spring of 1780, or 1781. His name was William Reed and his wife, at least when he fled, was Nancy Nesbitt. He had 4 sons "grown", William Jr.,John, Samuel and Solomon. They may have been married when they left, spouses surnames of Etherly, Lake sisters and Dixon. The family also included 5 daughters, Susan, Elizabeth, Abigail, Nancy and Sarah. Samuel's obituary in Ontario, states that he was born in Long Island but a lot of the info on this family is conflicting. I would appreciate any clues anyone could give me as to how the family could have lived in Long Island when William was traditionally from Connecticut, somehow connected with the South Carolina Militia OR Prince of Wales Loyal Regiment OR Butler's Rangers OR Delauncey's Brigade AND "settled on the banks of the Delaware River!!"
