The 1883, Addison, Steuben Co. NY, will of Patrick Hogue, Mary (Hogue) Toomey's father, lists her name as Mary Twomy, Kirkwood, NY, but subsequent research states the name as Toomey. My husband, Ron Rose, is a descendant of the Hogue family. If anyone is connected to the TOOMEY/HOGUE family, please contact me.

Query: Looking for a complete list of the children of Leman Mason who lived in Colesville Township from about 1840 until his death. He was the son of Capt. Luther Mason and his wife, Polly Catlin, both of whom are buried in Stowe Cemetery, Windsor, NY (aka Lyons Farm Cemetery). Some of Leman's children are mentioned in his biographical section of the Broome Co. History but I suspect there may have been more, especially females. His bio stated that there were eight children but I have been able to account for only five of them. I am trying to prove the parentage of my great grandmother, Sophia Mason Wilsey b. March 11, 1818, d. August 11, 1900. Sophia is buried in Emmanuel Episcopal Church Cemetery, Stamford, CT, next to her daughter, Margaret Wilsey Trowbridge. Sophia married William Wilsey on December 31, 1838 in New Milford, Susquehanna Co, PA. Any leads would be appreciated.
Also, any leads as to when Leman died or where he is buried will also be of great help. Thanks.
