My 3rd great grandfather, Gerald Howatt and his wfie Elizabeth, lived on a farm in Newburgh with his in laws, John & Idonea Eversden, during the 1860 census.

LOEFFLER Tue Dec 24 17:09:42 1996
I am looking for two brothers who came from the Baden area of Germany. Surname: Loeffler. One brother was named Wilhelm, the other later called himself "Timothy" but I believe that that is not his baptismal name. They arrived in Albany before 1853 and probably after 1845. If anyone could check the Albany City Directories for these years, I would be greatly appreciative. "Timothy" married Catharine Nesch in Albany in 1853, but it might have been out in the county since I have had no luck finding it in the city of Albany. Thank you so much!
