Subject: Parsell Cemetery Information
I'm interested in accurate genealogical information. There is a piece of parenthetical
misinformation on your site - so I'd like to correct it.
The wife of Andrew Loyster was NOT Betsy Briggs, as stated in the December
1962 issue of
His wife was Elizabeth V. Van Dorn, daughter of John Van Dorn and Alchey Voorhees.
This Elizabeth was born 22 Feb 1807 in Charlstown, NY. She married Andrew
Loyster on 14 July 1831
This information comes from two sources:
2) A DAR application of Fannie Ogden Day (Fannie was Florence's older sister,
who was 21 and married
Thanks for listening. I hope that I can ultimately spread this information
