3 Tryon families were living in Coxsackie during the last half of the 1700's - Benjamin, Petrus and Jochum according to census records and records of the Dutch Reform Church of Coxsackie.

TRUAX Sat May 10 13:16:45 1997
I am seeking information on a Jacob Truax b. 1761-62. He would be my gggggrandfather. A manuscript by Thura Hires Truax lists him as a son of Abraham Truax. I strongly doubt this. Neither the NYG&BR (House of Truax 1926-27) nor Pierson's genealogy of Albany support this. This Jacob is the father of Peter Truax who married in Glen Sutton, Que in 1823. Peter was supposedly born in Vermont (1850 census), but I think this may also be inaccurate. I believe Jacob and several brothers or cousins were among a group of families that relocated from Albany to the Farnham, Que area around 1792. The families seemed to move back and forth across the CAN - VT border frequently. I do not however, believe they were UEL. If anyone can shed light on either individual I would be very grateful as this is my the only "missing link" in my Truax gen- ealogy.

TULEY Sun Jan 26 15:48:29 1997

HOENIG Wed Dec 11 16:28:19 1996 1890 THE GREAT REGISTER I just found out at my local Orange Co,Ca genealogical society meeting that Orange County has just published its version of the 1890 THE GREAT REGISTER.

This is done by using all available local resources in that time frame. Does anyone know if any New York counties have completed or are near completion of their versions of the 1890 THE GREAT REGISTER? Any information would be greatly appreciated as I live in So. California but have roots in New York state!
