PRIME/PRUYN/PRUIN Tue Nov 19 09:05:17 1996
Seeking information on the Prime/Pruyn/Pruin families of Montgomery County. My last identifiable ancestors there are David Pruin (also spelled Pruyne) who married a Eunice French and had my gggf David P. Pruin/Preme/Prime who was in turn married thrice: 1st to an Ann Courtney, with son Abram C. Prime; 2nd to a Virtue Coons, with issue daughter Hannah; and lastly to Nancy Ellen Vedder, 1823-1898, by whom he had sons Israel Day Prime, Albert, Jacob, John; and daughters Mary Jane (Langley) and Anna (Bille). The family name was apparently anglicized over the years. Baptismal and marriage records from the Dutch Reformed Church at Fonda show David P. Prime slowly changing the spelling of his name from the original Pruyn(e) to Pruin/Preme and finally to Prime. He and Virtue moved to the Allegany/Cattaraugus County area circa 1841, when Virtue died. He married Miss Vedder the following year and my ggf, Israel Prime, who later used the name James Francis Prime, was born in 1843. Would greatly appreciate any information on how David Pruyn(e) and Eunice French tie into the historic Pruyn families of Montgomery and Albany counties.

ROBBINSMon Jul 14 08:47:14 1997

Professional researcher wanted:

	From records left by a family researcher now deceased, "In NY

1790 census JOSEPH ROBBINS  is shown in Halfmoon, Albany County, with

2 girls and a son, JOSEPH FRANKLIN ROBBINS.  Shows JOSEPH ROBBINS b. abt

1764"  Note: I have found a JOSEPH ROBBINS, b. Jun 1764 in Carver,

Plymouth, MA (no parents listed) in LDS files.  Another LDS listing

shows JOSEPH ROBBINS, b. 26 Jun 1764 in Middleboro, Plymouth, MA

w/relative JOSEPH ROBBINS.

	In the 1800 census, JOSEPH ROBBINS is shown in Bloomfield,

Ontario County, NY with 6 children, 4 girls and 2 boys.

	Thus, 3 children were born in either Albany or Ontario counties

between 1790 and 1800.  In neither census do we know the names of any

of the children other than JOSEPH FRANKLIN ROBBINS, who was born in 

1790.  Presuming that JOSEPH FRANKLIN owned land in Albany County, are

there searchable records of land transactions that might show when he

moved and his wife's name.

	I realize that you do not offer research, but if you could pass

this letter on to a professional researcher that might be of service to

me, it would be sincerely appreciated. The researcher could write me

advising what could be done to find out more about this family and the

costs of such research.

	My address is Tom O'Neil, 716 E. Dennis #88, Tumwater, WA 96501.

ROGERSThu, 17 Apr 1997 18:15:18 -0700
I'm trying to find out about my mother's father and his people. Her parents were Daniel Raymond Rogers and Mildred Virginia Rogers. Daniel's parents were Marguerite W. Taylor b. 12/15/1890 Georgia and Daniel J. Rogers. Very little is known about the Rogers side of the family because Marguerite and D.J. divorced and I don't think their was much contact afterwards. This is what I know: Daniel Raymond was born in Texas in 1910. Marguerite and Daniel J. met during his stay at a Military Academy in or around San Antonio? His parents were very unhappy about the marriage. They had three children and divorced. She was from Georgia, but I have yet to find anything on her either. I have many old pictures and there are little hints on the back. One of the pictures is very old, it is of a man shoveling snow, in the back ground is a man on a horse drawn carriage loaded with old fashioned milk jugs on the side of the carriage is "A.O. Hatt or Hale?" on the back of the picture is "My grandfather Daniel Albert Rogers in Eastwood, N.Y." My mother and aunt remember their father telling them his fathers people were from Upstate N.Y. and they think they remember hearing Albany somewhere along the line. Their father told them he came from 9 generations of military men. Daniel J. Rogers died between 1940 and 1955. I've had a very difficult time in finding anything on this side of the family. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I don't find an Eastwood in the Atlas. Do you know where it is/was?

I do not know what county in NY my great-grandfather was born, I only know he was born in NY state. His name was Seth SEELYE, born in 1835.

Sophia's parents were Stephen GIGUE and the Countess de Marleau from Marseilles, France. Natalie THOMPSON had been married once before to Ben BROOKER; she later divorced him. Natalie and Ben had two children together named Frank BROOKER and Natalie BROOKER. Seth SEELYE and Natalie THOMPSON had two children, John SEELYE and Charles Thompson SEELYE. Charles Thompson SEELYE was my direct ancestor. He was born 27 Jun 1868 in Baltimore, Maryland; died 22 Mar 1953. Charles married Emma Mary HALES 18 Oct 1887.

I'm trying to research Seth SEELYE; to discover where he was born in NY, and who his parents/grandparents were. My family records state that either his father or grandfather was an Iroquois Chief.
