Could you help me locate information on whether James Caar, he is the person who purchased property from John Stillwell in 1693-95, and Anthoni(y) Caar are the same family?

Anthoni(y) Caar also used the surname Kaar, as you can see the families are intertwined either by blood or spelling down thru history.

I am desperately looking for information on my great-grandparents, who lived on Long Island from the mid 1930'3 until their deaths in 1948. I want to find their address, their burial place, and their Catholic Church, as well as any birth, death, & baptismal certificates.
They first settled in the Bronx after arriving from Ireland, and all their children were born in the Bronx. In the mid 30's, they moved to Long Island.  My gGrandfather worked on the Long Island RailRoad as a Conductor until he retired. I know this is a lot, but I am just beginning my search; here are their names and their children's names:

Anyone know if there is a section of Greenport L.I. called 'Pipe's Neck?'We have some pictures taken probably in the 1920's of 'aunt Lizzie', Isa and Bob taken in front of a two story white clapboard house with the caption 'Pipe's Neck bunch.' Also another picture of a similar house but with a porch across the ront captioned 'Pop's birth house, Greenport.'Both houses seem to be on hilly sand dunes.We think this is the Corwin family as a Harold is in a few of the pictures and we know he is Harold Corwin who lived in Brooklyn at the time.Harold's father was Joseph Corwin and we think he's "Pop."But we're not sure.Others in these pictures are Florence, Charles and a baby "Jane." The album that we found these pictures in belonged to Harold Corwin and his wife Gertrude [Banford.]They m. in 1916 in Brooklyn.

Looking for John Trihy b. 1825 Ire., He had his first Child, Thomas Trihy 1852 at Sag Harbor, Suffolk Co. Trying to find out when he migrated to Long Island. Does anyone have an 1850 census that could do a lookup for him? His wife's name was Honora, They had dau. Mary Ellen Trihy, also born Sag Harbor, 1854.

They were Alice, Catherine, Johanna, Jane, and John Jr. This Trihy family left New York sometime after John Jr.'s birth in 1865. and show up in Norwich, CT by 1876 when Mary Ellen Trihy got married to Martin Hourigan.
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Rob

Mark Webb <markhw@adelphia.net>
Family history tells me that James Jr. was a son of James Sr., and that James Sr. was a mariner. This is somewhat substantiated by a sketch of William, James Jr.'s son, documented in "Commerative Biographical Record of the Counties of Rock, Green, Grant, Iowa and Lafayette, Wisconsin", pg 812-13. It states "The paternal grandfather of our subject was James Webb, a native of New York, of English descent, who followed a sea-faring life and at death left one son and one daughter."

I located a will in New York City Wills 1771-1776 for a John Case of Southold (on Long Island), Suffolk, New York which was witnessed by "James Webb, mariner." This led me to check census records. In the 1778 Suffolk, New York Census, I found "Webb, James, 5; Thomas, 4". In 1790 US Census, I found a James Sr. and James Jr. residing in Southold. This same census shows an Orange, Joseph and Thomas Webb in Southold. We have estimated James Jr.'s birthdate between 1764 and 1775, so this is consistent.

In support of this, I located two references to James Webb on Long Island. The first is from "The New Suffolk Story", by Marjorie Moore Butterworth,
available at the Cutchogue Free Library on Main Road. This states that "In the 18th Century, the name was changed to Robins Island Neck. Raising livestock was the primary activity; in about 1759 James Webb was one
of the first to build a home near the shore."

The second reference comes from " A Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Venture, A Native of Africa, But Resident Above Sixty Years In the United States of America," Revised and Reprinted With Traditions, By H.M. Selden, Haddam, Conn. 1896, Related by Himself. It is as follows: "About twelve years ago, I hired a whale boat and four black men, and proceeded to Long
Island after a load of round clams. Having arrived there, I first purchased of James Webb, son of Orange Webb, six hundred and sixty clams, and afterwards with the help of my men, finished loading my boat. The
same evening, however, this Webb stole my boat and went in her to Connecticut river and sold her cargo for his own benefit. I thereupon pursued him, and
at length recovered the boat, but for the proceed of her cargo I never could obtain any compensation."

In "A Digest Of The Early Connecticut Probate Records, 1710 to 1715," one finds reference to Orange Webb: "Court Record, Page 180--1st March, 1713-14: Orange Webb, 18 years of age, son of Henry Webb, late of Wethersfield, decd. chose Consider Hopkins of Hartford to be his guardian."

Where I am having problems is tying this all to my James Jr. Webb. James Jr. seems to have disappeared from Southold by the 1800 and 1810 US Census (while James Sr. remains). This could, obviously, mean that James Sr. died and the census coninues on with James Jr.

There are a number of James Webb's that appear on these census listings for New York, variously Chenango, Westchester, Herkimer and Onondaga
counties (not an all-inclusive list).

According to family records, James Jr. married Anna Scott abt 1800. This might account for the inability to pinpoint James during this time, since son Isaac was born 1802 in Montgomery County, David 1811 in
Cazenovia, Madison County, and William 1819 in Oneida County.

In the 1820 and 1830 US Census, a James Webb is shown in Westmoreland, Oneida County, New York, so one could assume that James and family did settle in this area.

The 1840 US Census does not show a James in Oneida County (he supposedly died abt.1835). However, David and Isaac, along with their families, and Anna Webb (living with Isaac) are listed in the 1850 US Census living in Ohio. This is consistent with family histories.

Any help is much appreciated.

Born about 1751 - Died Aug. 8, 1798" buried in the Waverly Ave. Cemetery, Patchogue.

I would like to find out if he is buried with anyone else (i.e., in a family plot) and what is the source of the information about his Revolutionary War service.

Any other information about his Long Island connections would be very welcome. Elisha was active as a businessman in Hartford up to 1797 and then disappears. Obviously he must have died but why did they bury him in Patchogue??

Would like to find out any information on my 9th great grandfather, Richard Waring (also spelled Warren,) who settled in Brookhaven, Long Island, New York in 1655, after sailing from England on the ship "Endeavor" and landing in Boston in 1654. The entire party on the Endeavor settled in Brookhaven, on Long Island, after they purchased land from the Setauket and Patchogue Indians. A confirmation of the land patent was obtained on March 7, 1666, and the history of the 55 people who settled there is documented in the book "The History of Long Island," written by Benjamin Thompson. Other family names are Akerly and Land. The Warren surname of this family changed spellings several times, including Wearren, Waren, and Wearen. The Warren family members were Quakers. If you have any information on this family, please contact me. Thanks.

George Woolley <gwoolley3@comcast.net>
Long Island Woolley family: earliest Woolley emigrant

Long Island Woolleys from Suffolk & Nassau Counties. I am descended from emigrant Robert Woolley (born 8-2-1615 St. Albans Abby, Hertfordshifre, England). He is son of Robert Woolley & Tecla Pemberton. He is first found in Fairfield, Connecticut 1639.
He relocated from Fairfield to Setauket, Long Island in 1655, and shortly thereafter relocated to Southampton, Long Island where he married Anne Woodruff (his second wife) in 1661.
He had two sons John & Joseph from earlier marriage who also settled in Southampton and Southold, Long Island. He had 5 daughters and a son, Robert, Jr., from his second marriage. About 1680 he relocated to E-town (now Elizabeth) New Jersey and became an E-town Associate and drew a 100 acre Westfield lot #69 in 1699.

Emigrant Robert Woolley's son, John, married and had a son John who had a son John who had a son John married to Hannah Allen July 6, 1729 in St. George's Church in Hempstead, Long Island. Their son Benjamin married Susan Stocker whose son Stocker Woolley married Eliza Cheeseman after Stocker's first wife Phebe Tredwell died 8-9-1820 on their Great Neck Woolley Homestead farm on Lakeville Road across from Lake Success.

Emigrant Robert Woolley's mother, Tecla Pemberton, was daughter of Roger Pemberton who was brother to Alice Pemberton who married James Williams (Alice & James Williams are the parents of Rev. Roger Williams who founded Providence, Rhode Island). Emigrant Robert Woolley inherited his father's estate in 1627, as well from the 1634 will of Alice Pemberton Williams before he emigrated to America. He is one of the earliest settlers of Fairfield Connecticut; Southampton, Long Island; and a founder of Westfield, New Jersey. I believe his son Robert accompanied him to New Jersey along with his second wife, Anne Woodruff, and their 5 daughters.
He apparently died intestate between 1702-1712 in Westfield or Etpwn, New Jersey or Long Island. His eldest son, John was awarded all his Long Island estate, and son Joseph was granted permission to keep his Southold, Long Island farm that Joseph worked & lived. Emigrant Robert Woolley's holdings were rather extensive and scattered between Long Island and New Jersey when he died apparently intestate (no will found yet; but he was a witness to several others’ wills).

John Woolley (b. April 1702 on Long Island, d. December 1785 at Great Neck, Hempstead, Long Island) married 7-6-1779 to Hannah Allen (b. 8-6-1702 at Great Neck, d. January 1785 in Great Neck. He was the son of John Woolley who married Abigail (unknown maiden name). John Woolley b. April 1702 had a brother Tancred (both mentioned in their father’s will dated 9-29-1751 & Proved 10-28-1751).

Hannah Allen (above) was daughter of Henry Allen (b. about 1675 in Hempstead,d. 1728 in Great Neck) married about 1700 in Hempstead to Mary Udall (b. 10-14-1677 in Flushing, d. 1747 in Great Neck.

John Woolley & Hannah Allen had the following eleven children:
1. Benjamin (b. 1773) married 11-30-1768 Susannah Stocker (b. 11-9-1754, d. 7-17-18-9 Great Neck.
2. John (b. 10-11-1732, d. 1-17-1782 Great Neck family farm).
3. Elizabeth married 3-11-1754 to Luke VanNostrand.
4. Jane married a ? Campbell.
5. Philip buried 1780
6. Charles
7. Joseph b. 1740 married 4-28-1763 to Mary Toffey
8. Samuel married first on 11-17-1775 to Margaret Morrell, married second 11-17-1775 to Deborah Hewlett
9. Thomas b. 9-4-1748 married 6-8-1773 to Phebe Tredwell (b. 10-20-1756).
10. William
11. Henry b. 7-4-1734, married 9-20-1742 to Miriam Cornell.

My father’s brother, Lawrence M. Woolley & their cousin, H. Leslie Hicks are the authors of “Woolley’s in America. I have copy of this book as well as most of their original pages that were given to me. I have since discovered a great deal of information that they had not yet discovered when this book was assembled during the 1940’s and early 1950’s.

my family tree Surnames include: Woodruff, Allen, Hewlett, Cheeseman, Weeks, Tredwell, Brinkerhoff, Rapelye, Smith, Stocker, Platt, Mitchell, Cornell, Remsen, VanNostrand, Layton, Williams, Bogart, Hicks, Hegeman, Onderdonk, Robinson, Rockefeller, Greene, Willard, Vanderbilt, Vanderbeeck, Thorne (Thorn), Van Voorhees, Van Siclen, Van Couwenhoven, Suydam, Stryker, Snedeker, Seaman, Schenck, Polhemus, Onderdonk, Monfoort, Lott, Mott, Lequier, lent, Lefferts, Knight, Lawrence, Duryea, Dodge, Carpenter, Bergen, Berrien, Adriance, and many other early American family names.

I am looking for info on my Berry Line. I can only go back to william Berry of Fleming County KY. I know that his family is from Long Island NY a few generations later. My uncle found a website last year that said there is a very old lawsuit against Manhattan,Long Island,NY because the land it was built on whenever that was, belonged to my Berry family line. It lists all of the future descendents of the origional land owner were to recieve payments. It listed my father and his brothers among many many other names. It has been on file so long it will probably never be satisfied. The story goes that the first land owner was a man named Berry who died at sea, he was a seaman. He left h is land to his widow and all of her future generations. It somehow got out of her possession and resulted in what is now Long beach NY. Has anyone ever heard or seen this before? I am curious and sure all of those involved would be anxious to help it become finalized.

I have a question, and was hoping someone may be able to help. Its about the Rose family of Long Island. I'm not a genealogist, so am unsure how to find information.

My husband's father was the illegitimate child of the patriarch of the Rose family in the late 1940's or early 1950's. Apparently he had an affair with a German house maid, and Richard was the result of that union. The maid was sent back to Germany, and my father-in-law was adopted by the Townsends (Henry and Elizabeth)...an English/Scottish couple that worked for the Rose's for many years.

The Townsends moved to Florida, and we believe they are deceased. My father-in-law died of a brain anuerysm when my husband was approximately 16 years old - 19 years ago. They were estranged before then, so my husband knows little about him, and honestly doesn't care to.

However, my husband has a long history of migraines, and we've just learned that our 2 year old daughter must see a neurologist for frequent headaches. Because his father died of an anuerysm I'm petrified. Is there a way to find the medical history of the Rose's, or the family themselves to ask them directly about their history?

Please, if there is any information you can provide, I would appreciate it very much.

Thank you.

Looking for information re: Cora Lathrop Ostrander and John Ostrander, my grandparents. Believe they married in 1894. My father was born to them in Northport on 3 Oct 1895. The story is they left for Washington state the next year. Late in life my father learned he had 5 siblings older than he born to his mother and supposedly alive when he was born. Recently learned that her previous name was supposedly Lathrop. John came from Connecticut. If anyone has information, I would like to hear.

Hugh MacKay Sutherland, born Scotland 1803, after being shipwrecked stayed some months during 1837 at the Sailors Retreat, Staten Island. Made his way to Long Island, befriended by Mr Kitcham and worked on his farm in Jericho. Then employed by Mr Wells, a Quaker, who recommended him to Mr Wells, another Quaker, before working for Mr Henry Motyt at Manhassett. In 1840 Hugh was working at a College run by Rev. Dr. Michlenbery(?)at College Point, driving the mail daily to Flushing. Information taken from 2 letters written by Hugh to his brother in Scotland. Can anybody tell me more about Hugh Sutherland, my family member? No trace of him after July 1840.

I am disappointed that I have had no response regsrding the Searing lineage who was one of the original proprietors at Hempstead. Additonally,, because I understodd this site to be site specific to Long Island lineages without venturing to a million other sites. I posted my message some 3 weeks ago and was hoping for some response - negative or postive or leading me to other avenues. If the purpose of your site is to connect those with lineage to Long Island and work together to form that era of history, I fail to see the significance when evidently it is a blind message that is never reponded to??? If anyone is listening, I would appreciate a response regarding the SEARING lineage, originally from the originator - seroeon - specically to an AUGUSTUS VALENTINE SEARING. Respond to ccdatty@aolcom - thank you.

WINHAM - I am looking for any information on ancestors of Archibald Spencer Summerfield Winham, m. to Mattie Winter Coe (who was descended from Robert Coe who emigrated from England in 1634 to Boston, then Long Island area). Archibald probably born approx 1880-1890?

Looking for info on Alexander Morrison, Alexander McPherson and Alexander Malcolm all
in the building trades arrived from Scotland about 1906. Alexander McPherson was reported
to have owned a saloon where the current Woodside Public School is now situated.
Alexander Morrison's wife was "Minnie" and Alexander Malcolm's wife was "Jessie". The McPherson's
eventually went to Florida, the Morrison's went to California and the Malcolm's stayed in the area.
Would like to know if perhaps there is a street directory between 1906-1930 that shows these 3
families in the area and if there was indeed a saloon.

I have hit a dead end in my quest to find a family of Harbes & Figginger that lived in Hicksville, Queens county, NY at least as far back as 1860. My Great Great Grandmother Katherine Harbes is noted as having been born there, however I can't find her death records or birth records. NYC Municiple Archives did not go back to 1860 and she died in April 1926 in Spartanburg, Sc but vital records there have been unable to locate a death certificate. Her father was Gerard Harbes and mother was Katherine Figginger-Harbes. Katherine Figginger Harbes is noted as having been born in Prussia but died 8/3/1885 in Manetto Hill (Bethpage/plainview)Queens county, but have unsuccessfully been able to retrieve her death record from NYC Municiple Archives. In addition to Katherine Harbes, Gerard Harbes and Katherine Figginger-Harbes had other children; William, Mary, Magdalene and Anna Elizabeth. I would really appreciate any help anyone can give me. I have been searching for Harbes/Figginger for over a year and am totally stuck.

In a Protestant Episcopal Church in Hempstead, Long Island, is a record of the marriage on March 12, 1730, of Peter Baker and Mary Peet; to them were born one son and four' daughters: James, Mary, Catherine, Sarah, and Martha.
James, born in 1731, married Jemima Kirke, a Quaker preacher. They had thirteen children..."

To Jessica Logan- I tried responding to the query you posted on 26 Sept. about the captain of the Suffolk County Militia in 1775. The email came back undeliverable however.
There were quite a number of captains- there were four regiments of militia from Suffolk. The overall commander of the Suffolk County militia then was Brigadier General Nathaniel Woodhull. The First Regiment was commanded by Colonel William Floyd, the Second Regiment was commanded by Colonel David Mulford, the Third Regiment was commanded by Colonel Thomas Terry, and the Regiment of Minutemen was
commanded by Colonel Josiah Smith. Each regiment had about 8 to 13 companies, each commanded by its own captain. So there were probably about 40 to 50 captains in all.
