ANDRUS Sat Dec 28 16:09:05 1996
I am trying to find the birthplace of my grandfather, Stephen W. Andrus. He wrote in his family Bible that he was born in 1828 in Seneca Co., N.Y., but I have never been able to confirm this.

Other children of Samuel & Eliza born in N.Y. were Cornelia, George, Emugene, and Francis. Any help gratefully received !

Seeking any info on family of origin for James Robert Cross, born in Albany, date uncertain but between 1856 - 59. I think 1857 by what I have found so far. I can't find him in the 1860 census for NY, and have found no clues or hints to lead me to his birth family. Family legend says he had a brother, but they were estranged for many years. I can't find James between date of birth in NY and his marriage to Elizabeth Mathilda Ewing of Ohio on December 25, 1889 in Spokane Falls, WA. They had four children, all born in WA state: Jennie Amelia Cross b. 9 Feb 1891; Cora Frances Cross b. 19 Apr 1892; Harry Wilbur Cross, 5 Jul 1894; and Charles Raymond Cross b. 11 Nov 1898. On 1900 census, he stated that his parents' birthplaces were unk. In 1920 census, he said his father was born in NY, his mother born in Canada. He was a carpenter, and he died April 11, 1939 in San Diego, CA. Can anyone with Cross connections help me? My mother has been looking for her grandfather for many years. Any help would be sincerely appreciated!

Had daughters Catherine, 1850, Margaret, 1851, Caroline, 1853, Adam, 1855. Eve was born in Wheeling in 1857, so the window for New York is 1843-1857. We think they were in New York City, Albany and Syracuse. We have already confirmed this family in the 1860-1880 Censuses. Thanks, Jim Andris, great great grandson

FICKEISENTue, 11 Mar 1997 09:06:37 -0600 (CST)
We are fairly sure that Abraham Fickeisen and new bride Margaret Meuller Fickeisen came to Albany some time soon after they arrived in New York City on or around July 4, 1843. Family legend has it that a farmer offered them work and a place to stay at Albany. Their first child, Adam, may have been born there early in the next year. In one to several years, they moved on to Syracuse, New York, and finally ended, by way of Wheeling, WV, near Marietta Ohio, in Washington County, where they set up a homestead and raised 12 children. I would like to know more about this family's activites in Albany.

FISH Wed Mar 26 13:30:03 1997
I am researching Samuel Merrick Fish was a commodities trader from Connecticut, resided in Albany during the mid-1800s, and moved on to NJ. His son, Roswell P., married Virginia Holstein, daughter of Lafayette and Anna Holstein. Lafayette Holstein was the son of Lafayette D. Holstein, a professor at Genva College (now Hobart) in Seneca County who helped Lafayette and his family escape from Omultz prison in Austria. Lafayette Jr. was a lawyer in Albany during the 1850s. I would like to exchange information on both these lines. Also, I am looking for exact dates/locations of birth and marriage for Roswell and Virginia and for Lafayett and Anna.

Children of James and Mary were Grace b abt 1903, Katherine Ruth, b Dec 1906 and Josephine b abt 1910. We have written to several Albany area cemeteries and have been unable to locate them; does anyone know the addresses of a possible cemetery in those areas besides Graceland, Evergreen and Memory Gardens. There is one on Rt. 20 Western Ave but letters come back incomplete address. Also, what churches (probably Presbyterian) would have been in the 100 - 600 Central Avenue area in the early 1900's.
