HELP!!! Am tracing Irish ancestor, Roger DONAHUE. Oral family history says he came to U.S. shortly after his sister. Managed to track sister, Margaret Donahue BOLAND, also found obit for husband, Thomas, who was prominent attorney in Iowa. Also lucked out finding living g granddaughter of Thomas and Margaret and spoke with her via telephone. She said Roger followed in same footsteps as the Bolands. With the help of a very detailed obit for Thomas Boland I am beginning the search with some clues. First, he worked in a sugar factory in New York (did not say if city or state) around 1866. Also am looking for history of 69th New York Infantry from the Civil War, supposedly in Battle of Bull Run. Thomas Boland was attached to this unit. Anybody that has any ideas on a starting point can e-mail me. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I am researching the PALMATIER genealogy. My great-grandfather, GEORGE PALMATIER and his wife, ROSETTA BARTLETT moved to Walton in abt. 1903. His parents were HARMON and MARY J. (BENTON) PALMATIER. Rosetta's parents were ERASTUS and NANCY BARTLETT. I have a photo of George and Rosetta in front of their "new" house at 288 Front St. I also have photos of George in his grocery store on Delaware St. and Prospect Ave. I would appreciate any information on the PALMATIERs, BENTONs, or BARTLETTs; the information I have makes it appear the PALMATIERs dropped into Delaware County out of nowhere. I believe George and Rosetta moved to Walton from Sidney Center (Central) where they were married. My grandfather, EARL PALMATIER moved to Buffalo where my father, ROBERT and I were born and raised. Also have descendants EZRA PALMATIER and HARMON PALMATIER who were possibly in the 144th NY Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War. ANY INFO IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

I am searching for information on Charles HOOK (HUCK) and Grace Ruth SWAN who were married in 1898 in Sullivan County, New York. The couple moved to Morehead, Rowan County, Kentucky in 1905. The couple had at least one child, Ellen Virginia HOOK (HUCK), who was born 28 August 1910 in Morehead, Kentucky. Grace Ruth, Ellen's mother, died 3 weeks after giving birth to Ellen, at which time Charles took Ellen back to New York and left her there in the custody of his sister who lived in Binghamton, New York. Charles HOOK (HUCK) then returned to Morehead, Kentucky and nothing else is known of him. If you know of this family, please e-mail me at I am trying to help an elderly gentleman find out this, his family.

Writing a JUDSON history; wish to exchange data with anyone researching the JUDSON surname.

Emily Raemore Sat Feb 1 23:28:42 1997 - bad email address 6/21/15
Looking for former surname, firstname Joseph, born 4-14-1826, in or near Plattsburgh. Had older brother and sisters. Ran away from home in 1829. Parents were French; Joseph spoke French. Joseph married prior to 1864 to a PA woman. Shows up in Lycoming Co. 1870 census, married with a small son; worked in lumbering. He then changed his surname (from whatever he was born as) to Ramer/Reamore/Raymore/Raemore. (Family name is Raemore now.) Tradition says he was born as Duclos, Baliou (or other spelling), or Grossjean. This man is confusing, and if anybody can help, I would appreciate it. ANY clues would be helpful. Thank you

I'm seeking any references to the MEDLAR surname prior to 1800. I'm specially interested in in the possibility that this family might have adopted this surname after having emigrated from the Netherlands in the late 1700's. I have heard several stories about some members of the family having had information about this, including the original Dutch surname. The oldest records we got mention a Zachariah Medlar, circa 1790. Other family stories makes the Medlar family owners of what is today Trinity Church, in lower Manhattan - during the times of the Dutch colony. Unfortunately nobody remembers now. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I would like to access copies of the 1850s magazine published in Owego, NY entitled, "St. Nicholas." I am especially interested in the articles by Judge Charles P. Avery about Susquehanna Valley Indian and pioneer history. Where can I find copies of this magazine? I am also searching for the ancestors of LaFayette Strope's wife, Minnie Bennett of Towanda and Montrose, PA and later of Newark Valley and Apalachin (now Ross Corners), NY. Her father's name was Elmer R. or E. Bennett and her mother's name was Emma (maiden name probably Robinson/Robison or else Van Tulye/Tuyl/Tyle/Tile/Lite!) of the Towanda, Monroeton area of Bradford County, PA. LaFayette Strope is a descendant of "Big John" of Wysox, PA.
