Looking for any information on Anastasia and John J. Sullivan. They immigrated from County Cork, Ireland to Long Island in approx 1864/65.   They lived on Long Island and had  2 children during the years 1865 - 1867.  Nora approx 1865 and Lawrence approx 1867 were born on Long Island.  Are there any records for birth during those years that are available.

William Salyer's mother in-law,  first wife of Foulk Davis, is reported in the  Witch Trial of Goody Garlick of Easthampton, Long Island, New York, as having had a child die on Gardiner's Island due to Garlick putting the evil eye on it. That would mean the child was buried on the island...My Query is: has a list of names ever been printed of people having graves in the Lion Gardiner cemetery on Gardiner Island?.......Gerald Dee Salyer

DEMARS of Huntington LI
I am researching the Demars family.  I have an Alfred Demars, born in New York, possibly Ogdensburg, St. Lawrence County around 1886.  He was the son of Ephraim Demars and Anathalie (Nettie) Countu.  He had a brother Wilfred Demars who was born in Ogdensburg in 1890.  Wilfred married Carrie Leroux and he lived in Ogdensburg and then Watertown where he died in February 1942. His obituary states that his brother Alfred was living in Huntington, LI. Alfred was married to a women that was called Tillie.  I do not know if Tillie was her name or if it was short for maybe Matilda or something like that.
Alfred and Tillie had a son, George Demars.  I do not know when George was born, but he was presumably born on Long Island NY. I would appreciate any help on this search.  I would like a death date for Alfred and Tillie and a birth date for George and if, when and whom he married and if there were any children born to him. I have been hitting a brick wall on this family for the past six to seven years.
Thank you.

I am trying to trace any records which would show family etc. of my gtgtgrandmother and her children who emigrated to the USA in the early 1900s. The family name was Connolly/Conley and the head of the family was Louisa b. London 1851. Her daughter also Louisa b. London 1873 married Thomas McMahon prior to emigrating. Other names maybe Catherine, who may of married a Speers, Harriet, John and Edward. Last known address was 116-38 142nd Street, South Ozone Park. Long Island. New York, this was in 1943. Do any records exist, census etc that could confirm members of the household, family names or any other records that could show their descendants. Thank you

I am looking for any historical evidence of parentage of Joel Rowland Scudder born Long Island about 1795.

Joel Rowland Scudder lived in Hebron, Washington County, New York arriving there sometime prior to 1830.  He appeared on the 1830 Hebron Census with a wife and four children.  In 1833, land records for Washington County show that Joel and his wife Delilah sold their land in Hebron.  On the 1840 census, Joel is listed living by himself in Hebron with no family members.  On the 1850 census, Joel is listed on the Granville, Washington County, New York census living with a new wife Abigail and one child.  Joel Rowland Scudder, his wife Abigail, and their four children show on the Granville records through 1870.  Joel Rowland Scudder died in Poultney VT on May 17, 1876.  His death certificate showed that he was 81 years 4 months old at that time.  Records in Washington County, and military and pension records from the National Archives show that Joel Rowland Scudder served a three month enlistment under the name of Joel Rowland in  the New York Militia during the War of 1812.  His military service was from September to December of 1814.   Historical records, census records, and his death certificate indicate that he could have been born any time between January 1795 and August of 1797.  He most often listed his place of birth as Suffolk County, Long Island, New York.  However, I know of at least one census record which shows Queens as his county of birth.

I believe the most likely parent of Joel Rowland Scudder are Jesse Scudder born 1771 and Mary Bryant born about 1774.  I have found a reference in The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record (quarterly-1911) - Extracts showing that their children (Samuel Scidmor, Joel, Israel, Ruth Ann, and Sarah) were all Baptized on January 28, 1810 in Smithtown.  However, I have not been able to locate the actual records, any evidence of what their son Joel's middle name was, or any historical evidence of what happened to their son Joel.

I am looking for any historical evidence of who Joel Rowland Scudder's parents may have been.  Any historical evidence of what became of Jesse Scudder and Mary Bryants son Joel.  Who Joel Rowland Scudder's first wife Delilah may have been, who their children were, and any evidence of what may have happened to that first wife and family.

I would appreciate any information you may have or any guidance you may be able to provide in searching Long Island records for the period 1790 through 1830.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hope someone can help me.  I live in Ireland and I'm trying to locate information on a great uncle who emigrated to New York in 1910.  Here is the information I have so far:

James Reilly born in County Cavan Ireland around 1886 - 1888. He came to New York on 5th March 1910 on the SS Baltic giving his age as 23. He was naturalised on 12th September 1917 giving his address as 122 W. 84th, date of birth as 26th July 1888, marital status as single and occupation as bartender.  His previous address was 205 West 84th Street. From records here in Ireland I have information that he lived at 22 Woodside Avenue, Long Island and died on the 1st August 1922. I have found him on the 1920 federal census for Woodside Avenue (Enumeration District 53) which states that he was aged 34, married with occupation Bartender/boarding house keeper.  His wife was Mary aged 26, arrived from Ireland in 1914 and they had a daughter also called Mary aged 2. I have written to all the archives for his death and marriage record and baby Mary's birth record but no luck. I wrote to several catholic churches/cemetaries but also no luck.  I suppose Reilly is such a common name and I don't have a maiden name for his wife Mary.

Can anyone offer some suggestions on where I should go from here.  There seems to be alot of indexes etc available for research at the public libraries and archives in NY but as they are not on line this isn't an option for me living in Ireland.

My father was born in Northport on October 3, 1895. His name was Stephen William Ostrander. His parents were:
John Jacob Ostrander and Cora Louisa Green (aka Lathrop). John was born in CT in 1862. Cora was born in NY in 1856. John worked in various building trades. On my father's birth certificate John gives his trade as a mason.

I would like to find a baptism or christening for Stephen. Cora belonged to the M.E. church, I think. I also would like to find a marriage for John and Cora. I don't know where a marriage would have taken place, but the 1910 census puts the date in 1894. In 1891 Cora was in Bridgeport, CT. I have not been able to find John after 1880 until this birth.

I would also be interested in any construction information that might be available. I am told that Northport was incorporated in 1894, so I speculate that John might have gone there to work on new construction. If there is some way to track such activity, I would like to find it.

My father always claimed the family went to Oregon in 1896, so they would be gone again by that year. I now know that they went to Washington state first, but I believe the 1896 date is probably when they left NY.

I'd greatly appreciate anything anyone can tell me.

I am researching two Smith families of the Town of Hempstead and the probable location would be the Freeport area.  George Smith b abt 1800 married Elizabeth ?.  Their daughter, Mary Ann Smith, was born 1827.    William Smith b abt 1800 married Nancy ?.  Their son  Richard G. Smith was born about 1821.  Richard G. Smith married Mary Ann Smith.  Among their children were Lydia, Mott, Mary Emma, Horace, Delamater, Elizabeth, Matilda, Thomas, Ida, and Winifred, born 1865/66.  I find nothing listed for these families in the Presbyterian Burial Ground in Freeport.  Does anyone know if the Methodist Church had a cemetery at one time?
I will be grateful for any information.

Does anyone have data on Abraham Cook(e) born abt 1720 possibly in Southampton, Suffolk, LI, NY.  He married in 1740 to Sybil/Sibel Burnet, born 1723 in East Hampton, Suffolk, LI, NY.  She was the dau of Ephraim Burnet and Bethia Foster of East Hampton, NY.  They married in Mecox, Suffolk, NY.

They had a son, Stephen Cook, born abt 1751, in Mecox or Southampton nearby.  He died in the Hanover area of Morris County, NJ in 1744 or 1845.  Stephen married 1st Sarah Havens b. 1753, in Southold or Southampton, Suffolk, NY.  She died before 1790 in Morris Co., NJ, when Stephen Cook married 2nd Widow Phebe (Mitchell) Halsey.  They lived in the Parsippany, Morris Co. area.   Stephen Cook and his 2 wives had abt 10 children named in his will.

Abraham and Sibyl (Burnet) Cook also had a dau, Sibyl or Sibel Cook.  I do not have her date of birth.  She may have married a Burnet cousin?  They are my 5th great grandparents.

Abraham and Sibyl Cook may have had a son Abraham Cook as well as other children? I have not been able to find data on their son Abraham Cook.  They did have a grandson, (son of Stephen Cook and Sarah Havens) named Abraham Cook, born 1775 in Southampton, Suffolk, NY.  He married in 1800 in Essex Co, NJ to Mary Lyon of Lyons Farms, NJ. In 1818 after the death of his wife he removed to Greene Co. Ohio with their children.  He died in 1843 in New Carlisle, Ohio.

Since many of the people from Long Island went to CT. during the Revolutionary War, it is possible that Abraham and his son Stephen both went to CT?.  There is an Abraham Cook and a Stephen Cook both named in the men from Southampton NY, unless others had the same names. The other Cooks also named in "The Refugees of 1776 from Long Island to Connecticut"  were Burnet, John Mitchell, John Jr., Elias, Elias Jr.James and Jonathan.

Would appreciate any information about these people.

Civil war pension records show my GG Grandparents (George C. Brown & Ann E. Carroll) on my mothers side were married by Rev. Nathaniel Hawkins on 1 August 1854 (but I suspect may have been 1859) at Fire Place in Brookhaven. George & Ann had a child, Adrian Brown (my G Grandfather) who was born in 1862 and who always told his family that he grew up in an orphanage but no other details. George & Ann do not show up anywhere in the 1860 census. George enlisted in 1861 in the NY 4th Cavalry and died in 1862. Ann and her son Adrian next turn up in the 1870 census living together in Philadelphia and she was a widow the second time after marrying George W. Yard of Philadelphia. Nothing is know about them during the years 1862 to 1870.

The 1850 census shows George C. Brown living in Brookhaven with who I think was his "first" wife & child and listed his occupation as "seaman".

Researching shows Rev. Nathaniel Hawkins became pastor of Third Congregational Church of Brookhaven in May 1825. He was a Congregationist Minister in Fire Place from 1850 until he died in 1860.

Sorry about taking so long to get to the question; Does anyone know how to find or where are the marriage records of Rev. Nathaniel Hawkins which may throw light on where George lived or came from and who his family was.

My fathers side of the family were from Monmouth New Jersey by way of New Amsterdam (Havens, Van Cleef, Wainwright, Van Mater, and others) so I might be able to help out anyone in these areas.

Thanks to anyone, Jim Coshland in California (by way of Philadelphia).

Who was Thankful PHILLIPS?

According to gravestones in the Eliakim DAVIS ("private") cemetery, Mt. Sinai, (sometimes known as the Davis cemetery on the Barrandi place), Eliakim DAVIS (1721-1808), son of Benjamin DAVIS (1690-1769/70) was married to Thankful PHILLIPS (1730-1815). Inquiries to living members of the Phillips family have produced no
records of a Phillips daughter named Thankful.  But Eliakim presumably* had a son named Chapman DAVIS (1758-1837) and I have
wondered why the name "Chapman" appears for the first time among more traditional DAVIS given names.  With the possibility that Thankful PHILLIPS may not have been a PHILLIPS by birth, but that she might have been a CHAPMAN, (and first married a PHILLIPS) I have researched the CHAPMAN families and found a Thankful CHAPMAN (1730- ---) of Saybrook, CT, daughter of Caleb CHAPMAN (1706-1785) and Thankful LORD.  The birth years for Thankful PHILLIPS and Thankful CHAPMAN are identical, but beyond the foregoing I know no more about either of these "Thankful"s.

* My goal is to confirm that Chapman was for certain the son of Eliakim.  While it would not be proof positive, if I could determine that Chapman's mother was Thankful CHAPMAN the circumstantial evidence would be helpful.  Does anyone have more information about Chapman DAVIS, Thankful PHILLIPS, Thankful CHAPMAN or Chapman's connection to Eliakim?

Hello and thank you for your reply.  We don't know where the marriage might have taken place.  We are trying to find the name of the grandmother who I never met.  We believe the marriage was in Nassau county because my father worked on outside grounds for people around 1910, the yeara my mother was born.  And we know he died in somewhere between those dates he married.  Is there no place where all the marriage records are kept?  For Brooklyn they are all in downtown NYC.  Any advice is appreciated.

They had three children, Ferdinand (1906-1984), Marie(1908-?) and Frances (1911-1944). From a N.Y.

I believe mine is the one whose wife was Ida Abrams but he may have had a few other wives too, one being ELIZABETH DEMOTT  who may have died in 1862 and Ida could have been wife #2. But he also divorced Ida Abrams circa 1885 having caught her in an affair. (great story in Brooklyn Eagle, dated 2 April 1885!)

My wife is the grand daughter of Ralph williston Hay.  Ralph was the (Adopted )son of  Thomas Arthur Hay and Julia Louisa Woodhull.  Julia was the daughter of Rev George S. Woodhull and Elizabeth Dana Martin.  If Ralph was  legitimately adopted by Thomas Arthur Hay and Julia Louisa Woodhull Hay, Why is he not mentioned in the Woodhull genealogy or the Martin genealogy written by Thomas Arthur Hay?  I have my theories about this and would like to discuss them with anyone who might be able to shed some light about the son that isn't acknowledged by the Hay or the Woodhull family.
