I'm looking for information on the genealogy of the Montauk indians. In specific I'm looking for references to a Mary Ann NICOLS/NICHOLS/NICOLLS who was b. 1817 Groton, CT d. 1851 Waterford, CT.

Any help with this line is very much appreciated. If anyone knows of any good sites for tracing Montauk genealogy I would appreciate it if you would pass that information along to me.

Robert M. Henderson <76572.2524@compuserve.com>
In researching my wife's VALENTINE ancestors, I came across this website. Her family tree has many Long Island associations, including HALSEY, LINDSLEY, and TOWNSEND. I am most interested at present in the TOWNSEND connection. According to my information, Joseph Manson VALENTINE married Julia TOWNSEND about 1855 (I have a copy of a letter written by Julia's father dated 16 March 1853, addressed to Mr. Joseph VALENTINE giving his blessing to the marriage of his daughter. However, in the family sheet of John TOWNSEND (1786 - ?) on this site, the name of Julia's husband is given as James M. VALENTINE. Included in the children of John TOWNSEND and Maria DURELL is also Sarah TOWNSEND who married M. P. DAYTON. From several sources I have found that my wife's great-grandfather, Joseph Henry VALENTINE and Frank DAYTON, son of Miln P. DAYTON and Sarah F. TOWNSEND were cousins and roomed together for a time in Portland, OR as shown on the 1880 Federal Census. Obituaries of both men confirm their parentage and relationship.
What I don't have is the date and place of the marriage of Joseph Manson VALENTINE and Julia TOWNSEND, although I know the couple eventually settled in Morrisania, NY where Joseph Henry VALENTINE was born in 1856.
Joseph Henry VALENTINE married Blandina Felicia LINDSLEY, b. 6 Mar 1858, Salem, NY, in Portland, OR. in 1883. They had two children in OR and removed to Stafford Springs, CT ca. 1895. Blandina's father was the Rev. Dr. Aaron Ladner LINDSLEY (1817 - 1891), descendant of Francis LINDSLEY and Thomas HALSEY, early settlers of Long Island.

Any information regarding the date and place of marriage of Joseph Manson VALENTINE and Julia TOWNSEND would be much appreciated.

Hi there. I'm looking for some long-lost cousions of mine in Long Island who go by the name of Hughes and Martyn. My Great-Great Grandaunt, Catherine Martyn (born about 1879) married her second cousion, John Hughes, in New York. She emigrated with her sister Mary, brothers Jamesy and Jack. Jamesy, my great-great grandfather, later returned to Ireland. Jack was killed on a construction site in N.Y. in 1922, and was unmarried. Mary married a Jewish bloke called Winn, who later deserted her. Their parents were John Martin (1842-1908) and Catherine Hughes (1850-1927). Mary's mother was John's first wife, Honor Finn (1838-1875). Both Catherine and Mary and believed to have died in Long Island about 1949.

In addition to this, there are descendants of John Martyn's father's half-brothers, Thomas and Larry Martyn, known to be living in Long Island, or at least somewhere in New York. I'm not entirely sure of their names just yet, but I will look them up if anyone contacts me. Looking forward to hearing from you,

Lookimg for the gravesite of Michael Howard in or around Bridgehampton or Sag Harbor Long Island, NY. What I can tell you about Michael Howard is that he was probably Catholic. He may have been born about 1820 in Ireland or England according to the 1865 Suffolk County census. He lived in Brigehampton while married to his first wife Mary (last name unknown). They had children, - John, James, Helen, David and Michael. Sometime after 1865 Mary died. Michael remarried a Mary Flynn sometime before 1873. Mary Flynn's children, Edward, Thomas and Philip grew up in Sag Harbor. In 1893 Edward and Philip moved to Elgin Illinois. In 1903 Mary Flynn Howard and son Thomas Howard moved to Illinois as well.

We have a possible match in the 1880 census which would indicate that Michael was a farmer (although he is listed as age 49 which would make his birth date around 1830) and his children were all born in Bridgehampton. I have not been able to find on the 1900 census Mary Flynn Howard, her husband or her sons Philip, Thomas or Michael even though all indications are that they were living in Suffolk County NY in 1900.

Michael Howard most likely died after 1893 and before 1903 when Mary Flynn Howard moved to Illinois.

Any help regarding old Catholic churches in Bridgehampton or Sag Harbor area about 1850's - 1900 would be appreciated. Also, cemeteries in Brdgehampton or Sag Harbor in this time frame would be appreciated. Any suggestions on who to contact regarding marriage certificates, death certificates and possible obituaries would also be appreciated.

I find it very hard to obtain information out of the state of New York... If someone could advice me as how to obtain birth certificates for the three children I would be so grateful...

Pamela Povey <robsam69@aol.com>
POVEY, Edward Alfred. He was my Great Grandfather, and came over from England. I have found him in the N.J. census, 1900. It gives his birth date as March 31, 1862. I also found him on the Ellis Island web site, and the birth date for him there, was March 31, 1873. The latter date is probably right. His first Wife, my Great Grandmother, was supposed to have been named Anna or Annie Bryne. She died, place unknown, somewhere between 1905 and 1907, we believe. She was from Ireland. He was supposed to have become a U.S. Citizen, in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1902. He moved to New York, Long Island,somewhere after 1914, we believe. He was supposed to have been hit and killed, by a vehicle, on March 24, 1956. His second Wife's name, was Mary Nalezynski Smith Seckler. They had four children together. George, Mary Merz/Mertz, Robert, and Francis Richard. I know where Francis Richard is, and he's still alive, but he doesn't know where his Father is buried. Would anyone please help me? I need to know where he is buried, and what the tombstone says, or if anyone will try and do a lookup of newspapers from 1956, for his death, or anything at all. I heard that his wife Mary, died about 1960. He worked at the Einson Freeman Company, a Lithographing business, as an elevator operator, until the Company moved to N.J. He also worked there, with a relative, named Charles Povey. No one knows who he was. The address that we knew he last lived at was 53.30-35th St Long Island City New York. From his first marriage, his first Son, was my Grandfather, Frederick George Povey, and he also had a Daughter, named Flora. Flora is 101 years old, and still lives in Long Island.I live in K.Y. and am trying to transcribe all the cemeteries that I can, here. I know that George had a Son, named George also, and Mary and Eddie Merz/Mertz had at least two children, Edward Jr. and Steven. Robert is supposed to have had a Daughter, named Barbara Povey Walters as well. ANY help, VERY much appreciated, thanks,

We are seeking the parents of Capt. Josiah Lupton, b. Bridghampton, NY 1729 Oct 21; appointed Capt. in the Suffolk County NY Militia 1773 Feb 16; m. Sarah (Sally)Fanning 1775 May 4; d. 1803 Apr 20 in Wading River, NY.

Would appreciate your thoughts and help in this regard?

Comments regarding your genealogy of Christopher Lupton of North Sea. He was born in England and arrived in Boston in 1630 with his father Thomas Lupton, (mother unknown). This family relocated quickly to Wethersfield, (Hartford) CT where Thomas and his spouse had a second son Thomas-2.

The family relocated to Branford, CT and from there, Christopher relocated to North Sea, LI, NY about 1654 and shortly thereafter married Lidiah. Your data on the WEB says that he married Abigail. I believe this is incorrect. While these two ladies were the daughters of Thurston Raynor, Lydia daughter of Thurston, by his first wife Elizabeth, (per Christopher's will) was the lady he married and who remained with him and alive till after his death and their production of seven children. After having 6 children, born in England, Thurston emigrated to Boston where he and his first wife Elizabeth had a 7th child. . Lidiah was their 6th child. Then Elizabeth died and Thurston married Martha Wood. Thurston and Martha had 5 more children of which one was Abigail.

This information is apparent from Thurston's will. Incidentally, The Raynor History by Stuart Payne Howell is incorrect as he attributes Abigail to be Christopher Lupton's wife and unfortunately this has been used by a couple of other authors predicated on Howell's statement. Thus leaving a confusion on the part of Thurston's wives and their children but his will I believe should be the deciding factor in this matter.

In Thurston's will, le leaves bequests to Martha Wood and all of his living children, one of which was Lydia. Someone (probably Howell) stated that Abigail's spouse was Christopher Lupton but she is presumed dead by 1667 because she was not mentioned in the will AND Lydia was mentioned for 10 pounds. These bequests were distributed in 1667 and Christopher was at the distribution and received the 10 pounds for his spouse Lydia.

I will be pleased to provide more specific information if you desire. This is contained in a short paper I wrote on the early Luptons in my quest for the parents of Capt. Josiah Lupton.

Now then, the children you attribute to Christopher Lupton are correct but there are five spouses that were omitted and I have their names if you are interested. In fact, if I can find the parents of Capt. Josiah Lupton I will be pleased to provide the descendants charts for the Luptons, Stanbroughs, Fannings, Smiths and Raynors and I believe these are correct as far as I have gone. The only "disconnect in these is at Capt. Josiah Lupton and I would like to get that corrected before distribution erroneous data.

With warm regards,
R. B. Hook

Hi. I am interested in the family MARTIN that came from Antigua to the town of Hempstead and built
a house that is now the Rock Hall Museum. They were earlier from Surinam and from England and
before that from Ireland. If anyone has any information they can share -- especially documented data,
I would love to know about it, no matter how trivial. Also, I would be glad to share with you what I
have! This Martin surname was closely connected to other names in Antigua and maybe in England,
such as Yeamans, Byam, Fitzgerald, Wyke, Thomas, Fonblanque, and many, many others. We
are talking 1500's in Ireland to 1600's in England and 1700's in Antigua with later 1700's for Long
Island, New York.

I am searching for my Schmidt/Schmitt relatives in the Brooklyn/L.I. area. My GGreat grandfather was Lewis (Louis) Schmidt who emigrated from Germany along with his wife Maria (Redig,Reddig, Redick) Schmidt, aroung
1879-80. They had two children Adam (from his first marriage) and Elizabeth with Maria. They had another daughter Catherine (my grandmother) and more sons, George, Joseph, Louis and William after they moved to the U.S.

Elizabeth married August Schmitt in l898/99in Bklyn. They had about ten children. Their names are Viola, Helen (Minnie) Albert, Ruth, May, Anna, Abbie, Joseph, Warren, Henry. Helen married a man named Schwabbe, May married Joseph Mc Namara, and Abbie married a Lloyd Hall. All of the children are dead now except Warren, I believe. I would like to hear from some grandchildren.

Lizzie died in l922 and August died in l934.

My grandmother Catherine, Married John Schroder and they had ten children also, Catherine (Mamie) Henry, William, Lottie, Tessie, Myrtle, Ethel, Elsie, Margaret, Helen.My mother was Myrtle and she married Charlie Rizzo. Aunt Mame married Frank Mir, Lottie married Bill Purdoski, Helen married Ed Drebing, margaret married Henry Stiedenrod Ethel married Salvatore (DUD) Villane.Elsie married Walter Siegenthaler.

My grandmother was born in Troy New York, where my ggrandparents owned a farm. When my grandmother was l0 or l2 she was sent to live with relatives in Bklyn because my grandfather Schmidt, lost his farm. He had been a gentleman farmer in Germany. They probably left their farm there because of the political unrest due to Bismark's decision to draft young men for the army and/or because they were Catholic, whom Bismark disliked.

I am trying to locate the town in Germany from which they came to further pursue our family history in Germany as well as here in the U.S. Grandma said we were related to the Krupp munitions family. She also said her family came from t
he town in Germany that had a large bridge destroyed during WWI. My knowledge of German history is limited so if anyone can come up with the name of that bridge (It was mentioned in the newspaper at that time), I would appreciate it.

Elizabeth married August Schmitt in l898/99in Bklyn. They had about ten children. Their names are Viola, Helen (Minnie) Albert, Ruth, May, Anna, Abbie, Joseph, Warren, Henry. Helen married a man named Schwabbe, May married Joseph Mc Namara, and Abbie married a Lloyd Hall. All of the children are dead now except Warren, I believe. I would like to hear from some grandchildren.

Lizzie died in l922 and August died in l934.

My grandmother Catherine, Married John Schroder and they had ten children also, Catherine (Mamie) Henry, William, Lottie, Tessie, Myrtle, Ethel, Elsie, Margaret, Helen.My mother was Myrtle and she married Charlie Rizzo. Aunt Mame married Frank Mir, Lottie married Bill Purdoski, Helen married Ed Drebing, margaret married Henry Stiedenrod Ethel married Salvatore (DUD) Villane.Elsie married Walter Siegenthaler.

My grandmother was born in Troy New York, where my ggrandparents owned a farm. When my grandmother was l0 or l2 she was sent to live with relatives in Bklyn because my grandfather Schmidt, lost his farm. He had been a gentleman farmer in Germany. They probably left their farm there because of the political unrest due to Bismark's decision to draft young men for the army and/or because they were Catholic, whom Bismark disliked.

I am trying to locate the town in Germany from which they came to further pursue our family history in Germany as well as here in the U.S. Grandma said we were related to the Krupp munitions family. She also said her family came from t
he town in Germany that had a large bridge destroyed during WWI. My knowledge of German history is limited so if anyone can come up with the name of that bridge (It was mentioned in the newspaper at that time), I would appreciate it.

Need help from anyone who is researching the Bakers, Edwards and Bennetts of Long Island. I am trying to resolve conflicting information which appears in East Hampton History by Jeanette Edwards Rattray (1953).

The widow of Nathaniel Baker (he died in a cannon accident during a celebration Feb 23, 1815) married on July 16, 1816, Henry Bennett (b.1789 d. 1873) . There is conflicting information concerning if the WIdow Baker was Sally Edwards or her sister Abigail Edwards. Both sisters married Bennetts, but Mrs. Rattray has Sally listed as marrying Samual Bennett and Abigail ( widow of Nathaniel Baker) listed as marrying Henry Bennett. In another section of her book she states that Sally was the widow of Nathaniel Baker.

Sally (b. 1795 d. 1871) and her sister Abigail were the daughters of Silas Edwards and Phebe Conkling. I would appreciate any information which might clarify which sister married Henry Bennett.

Janice Bernath <JBern68078@aol.com>
Does anyone know the name of the wife of Thomas Wickes (Wilkes) of Huntington, the immigrant from England in the 1600s? I've been helping a friend with his genealogy, and the info they have has Thomas Wickes' wife as Isabella Harcutt (Harcourt), but she wouldn't have been born yet (my info shows she was b. abt. 1662), and she was probably the wife of the son of Francis Weekes, Thomas (b. abt. 1651), of Oyster Bay (Francis is my direct ancestor, as is one of the Harcourt daughters, Meribah Harcourt [Townsend]). My friend's genealogy shows that Thomas Wickes and wife had a daughter Martha, who m. Timothy Conklin, b. 1640 at Southold, son of John Conkling (immigrant from England, b. ca. 1600) and his wife Elizabeth Allseabrook (b. 1608)who lived in Suffolk County. Wickes d. abt. 1683 in Huntington; his wife d. ca. 1670 at Southold. (I've also seen a website that has Sarah Scudder as the wife of Timothy Conklin.) Timothy and Martha had a son John, b. 1672, Huntington, m. Rebecca Talmage, b. 1698. Their son Nicholas Conklin b. 1722 at E. Hampton m. Martha Unknown. Their son Joshua Conklin b. 1770 at Mattituck m. Deborah Thorne, b. 1780. They apparently removed to Newburgh, Orange Cty, NY. Their son James Ostram Conklin was b. 1814 at Middlehope, Orange, NY; he married Rebecca Millard Purdy b. 1823 at Marlboro, Ulster, NY. Their daughter Lydia Wygant Conklin b. 1861 at Newburgh, m. William Wallace Ewing, b. 25 Dec. 1866 at Rochester, NY. They were married at Minneapolis, MN 22 August 1895. WWE was a trade commissioner for the Department of Commerce before 1920 and travelled extensively in S. America. (The family is looking for any evidence of this employment, but don't know quite where to look--possibly the Library of Congress? They do have a number of newspaper clippings, and copies of his gov't. reports.) His parents were William T. Ewing, born 1833 somewhere in Scotland, another brick wall since the location is unknown, but Dundee has been considered. His wife, Grace Hill, was born 1834 in Auchterhouse, Angus, Scotland. They are thought to have immigrated to Rochester, NY, in 1866 or shortly before. If any of this is even vaguely familiar to anyone, please contact me? My interest is in the Harcourt/Harcutt connection, if there is one, or in finding the surname of Thomas Wickes' wife, and the wife of Timothy Conklin. My other question is, are there passenger manifests for Great Lakes Ports (possibly/probably Rochester??) for 1866 or shortly before? Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Looking for any information of the marriage of my real mother (I'm adopted) She was born in 1912. Married to a Mr. Minogue in 1941. She was Catholic and Of Italian decent. Both my mother's parents came from Italy. My maternal grandfather and uncle were employed as cooks. My real mother was employed as a embroidery factory worker and chambermaid. They had one femail child prior to my birth (July 24, 1946) Mr Minogue was a heavy drinker and was put into a tubercular sanitarium.
My mother began living with my real father (name unknown) He was a Catholic and of Dutch descent and employed as a taxi driver. I was placed in a foster home at the age of 3 to Rose Marie and Joseph Mirenda, Bellmore Long Island. My adopted mother says she tried to adopt me early on but my real mother would not sign the release papers. At 16 the Mirenda's took me to an attorney and to court. I was emanacipated and adopted at 16 by the Mirenda's. I was not told at that time that it would seal the records so that I would never know my real mother, father, sister. If any of this sounds familiar, please email me. My mother is now 88 (born 1912) and father is now 91 (born 1909). I doubt they are still alive, but my sister must be.

Hello all,

We received a picture from him in 1917. On the picture he is with soldiers of the 305 Inf. Regiment (Division). Since WW1 we never heard from him again.
We like to know any information on him, Camp Upton, 305 Inf. (rgt or Div.) or the 152 Depot Brigade at Camp Upton in 1917. We like to know what happened to him in the US.
Hope to hear from you,
