Searching for parents and siblings of George Washington GIBSON. I believe he may have been born in Chenango County, NY abt. 1815. His parents may have been Timothy GIBSON and Priscilla Lee, although I have found no proof of this. He shows up in the 1840 Russia Twp., Lorain County, OH census as Washington GIBSON.

George Washington GIBSON m. Cornelia FREEMAN 3 Nov 1839 in Lorain, OH. They had 8 children. Timothy b. 1846; Edward; Orange; Alanzo P. b. abt 1842; Josephine Jane b. 1853; Edgar b. abt 1858; William b. abt 1866 and Alice b. abt 1867.

Is there a photo available of my grandfather's former home in downtown Oxford? His name was Paul W. CROUCH and he was a (the?) dentist in Oxford from at least the 1950s to ~1970. I've not visited Oxford for ~20 years (he moved to AZ in the '70s and passed on while living there), but my mother (his daughter) was wondering if the home was still there and what its use was today. It was along the road to the (1965-era) high school. I remember pillars on the front porch, but my mother doesn't.
Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks. -Bruce in Michigan

Scott HYDE"---my father, Mark, was their only child, and he died at age 54 in an auto accident in Cortland, NY on May 1, 1969. Chauncey DeElton HYDE, his father owned a furniture company in the DeRuyter area---(Union Valley????) I'm trying to get some loose links together for the DAR. I know that Chauncey served in the Civil War and was wounded----I REALLY want to figure out who his parents were. Thank you very much for any info you can give me concerning my father's family---my grandmother HYDE (Maude [or Maud]} was also the daughter of Sarah PALMEr. I think her father was a railroad engineer, but I may be mistaken. E. Scott HYDE had a sister name Nellie who is buried in Cortland, NY.---she was an artist, and possibly a dressmaker---one of her paintings and a write-up was donated to the Cortland Historical Society about 10 yrs. ago. Thank you so much. ps Scott and Maude owned a farm on the Cortland/Tomkins county line at the turn of the century, and were Episcopalians (spell?).

TILYOU

Mark Tilyou Mon Nov 12 16:42:21 2001
The surnames of Albert D., John C., John D., and Mrs. Mary TILYON as shown in 1869-70 North Norwich Business Directory should read: Albert D. TILYOU, John C. TILYOU, John D. TILYOU, and Mrs. Mary TILYOU.

Joseph TILLOU of Duchess County moved to North Norwich about 1800, with his second wife Nancy Hubbard TILLOU, and their children. One of the children was John TILYOU, who himself had two wives before dying in 1856. John and his 1st wife, Mary Paul, had 4 children; Joseph [b. Oct 10, 1829], Benjamin [b. April 25, 1832 and drowned in 1858], Mahala [b April 6, 1834] and John C. TILYOU [b. July 5, 1836, and correctly listed in the county Civil War listing.] After the death of Mary Paul, John married his 2nd wife, Mary Burwell Guile TILYOU, and they had 4 children: Mary A. [b. Feb 27, 1841, died at 1 year]; Albert D. [b. December 4, 1842, d. May 26, 1910], Andrew [b. Dec 4, 1842, a twin to Albert; died at birth], and Abraham [b. Oct 30, 1845, d 1848.]

The business owners / farmers listed in the 1869-70 business directory would be Albert D. TILYOU and his mother Mary Burwell TILYOU [the 2nd wife of John] living on lot 35, and his half-brother John C. TILYOU living on lot 57. I do not have records of John C's children with Jane Brookins, but John D TILYOU would most probably be either his son or the son of his brother, Joseph TILYOU.

Albert D. TILYOU and his wife Sarah GORTON, and Benjamin Albert TILYOU and his wife Martha GOODRICH are buried in the North Norwich cemetary. There is a dual family oblisk: TILYOU and GOODRICH.

My name is Mark R. TILYOU, son of Benjamin Philip TILYOU [who was born in Norwich in 1928], who was the son of Ivon Benjamin TILYOU [born in New Berlin in 1904], who was the son of Benjamin Albert TILYOU [born in North Norwich in 1872], who was the son of Albert D. TILYOU. I am currently living in the Baltimore, Maryland area.

I would appreciate corresponding with others researching this family tree. Other children of Albert D. TILYOU included Addie E. (TILYOU) PHILIPS, Emma A. (TILYOU) MALLOY, and William A. TILYOU, who all stayed in the Chenango area.
Thanks. Mark Tilyou

In 1930 a letter was written by Dr. Franklin B. Darby, stating: "Uncle Chauncey & Mary Ann are buried in the Green Cemetery, in the same lot as my father & mother." We discovered recently Rev. Chauncey & Mary Ann Short Darby are buried in Sylan Lawn Cemetery, Greene, Chenango Co, NY, next to his brother Lucius & Sarah Perkins Darby.

FOOTE - WELD

Tammie Collins Fri Nov 23 17:47:40 2001
George B FOOTE (1818-1895) mar May Sophia WELD (?-1881) on 2/6/1833. They had the following children: Mae E, LeRoy H, Amelia, Monroe B, Apollos W, Florence M, Lillian S. I visited the Old Chapel Cemetery in Coventry this past summer and found their graves there, along with the stone of a Capt Calvin WELD who died 11/8/1844 at age 56 years. (Am assuming this may be May Sophia's father). There was no stone for any other WELD. Several stones for the FOOTE family (Blanche H, Clarence B, Henrietta M, Thomas B, Apollos W & wife Ida M, Gracie, Mary Elizabeth w/husband Nelson Cahoon, Apollos FOOT & wife Permelia, Isaac N).
Cemetery was in great disrepair, many stones were broken and/or unreadable, worn from age.
Am searching for any information on the parents of George and May Sophia. Their daughter Amelia's death certificate states they were both born in Coventry - so where are their parents? Does anyone out there have readings on any of the other cemeteries in the Coventry area? Thank you!

I am seeking information about Horace BARD who lived in Chenago County in the 1880's. Horace was married to Eliza (SMITH) BARD and they had three sons, Richard, William and Walter. Walter was my grandfather, and he married Sarah WOOD. Sarah was from Wooster, I believe.

BUTTS

Don Sanford Mon Nov 26 18:31:59 2001
I recently responded to an 1999 archived query from Charles Cooper who was looking for an Oliver BUTTS, early 1800's, who lived in the New Berlin area. My e-mail response was returned because the server rejected the address, user unknown. Perhaps he has changed his ISP. Anyway, I believe we have ties to the same family and would like to find him.

My 3rd Great Grandmother was Mahala BUTTS who was born in 1791 and died in 1850 in West Bainbridge, Chenango Co., NY. She was married first to a man with a surname of BEAR, had three children by him and lived in Schoharie County. She came to Chenango Co., probably with her sister Hannah (BUTTS) VAN DUSEN, wife of Richard VAN DUSEN. She left her children with their uncle (probably her brother), Oliver BUTTS. She married second Allen BARSTOW probably in Chenango Co. in 1822.

Mahala’s child Betsey BEAR, came to Chenango County when a young woman and Married Stephen IRELAND in about 1834 or 1835.
Oliver BUTTS died 7 Sept. 1854 in Lafayette, Onondaga Co., NY and the court sent out a notice of probate to all heirs and next of kin.
I am searching for the parents and siblings of Mahala BUTTS and would be very grateful for any information on this family. Don Sanford


MURPHY - WELCH / WELSH / WALSH)

Ric Chrysler Wed Nov 28 18:23:19 2001
I am searching for information on the family of Martin WELCH and Hannorah "Nora" MURPHY. They resided in the town of Preston, or perhaps Oxford. I believe that Martin WELCH was born sometime between 1800 and 1820 (based on his daughter's birth in 1838). Hannorah would have probably also been born sometime around the same period. Their daughter Mary Anne WELCH (b.1838 in Oxford, Chen. Co., NY) married in 1863, Christopher BYRNE (b. 1824 in Kilpatrick, Meath, Ire.) and started a family in Friendsville, Susquehanna Co., Pa. All 9 of their children were born in Susq. Co., the first one in the year 1864 which means they probably moved right after marriage.
Martin WELCH appears in the 1869-70 Preston Business Directory with Oxford in parenthases. So I am assuming that he must have lived out his life at his homestead.
If anyone has any information on either the WELCH or MURPHY family, I would be much obliged if you shared that information. Thank you, Ric Chrysler (Binghamton) ric@stny.rr.com


SELEY - ALVORD - MONROE - ANGELL - SKINNER - PARKER

Carma Stone Sun Dec 2 00:39:47 2001
I am trying to determine what relationship made Abigail and my grgr aunt,Sarah, cousins.
In 1874 Abigail A. SEELY (1816-1900) sent a letter from New Berlin to her cousin, Sarah ALVORD, in which she cosoles Sarah who is grieving the death of her mother Lois Maria (MONROE) ALVORD (1816-1873). When the St. Andrew's Cemetery readings went online, I found Abigail buried there with members of the ANGELL family. A search in the New Berlin 1880 Federal Census indicates that Abigail's siblings were Maria C. ANGELL, Orrin ANGELL, Sophia DOWNING, and Adaline, the wife of David D. SKINNER. A search on the LDS site indicates that her husband was Henry SEELY.
Lois Maria MONROE (1816-1873) who resided in Chenango Co. with her parents, Lois (PARKER) and Josiah MONROE was married to James ALVORD in Norwich on August 20, 1837.

George and Rose TURK are my g-grandparents. In George's obit (1932) the TIBBITS surname is mentioned and this Mrs. Milo TIBBITS is said to be the dtr. of George and Rose TURK. In Rose Dutcher TURK's obit (1940) Mrs. Milo TIBBITS isn't mentioned. It is therefore assumed this Mrs. Milo TIBBITS died between 1932 and 1940, because I can account for all of George and Rose's dtrs and who they married, except this Mrs. Milo TIBBITS.

I am looking for information about the JONES family that lived on JONE'S Hill Road between German and McDonough. I guess that they would be there around the mid 1800's, but that might not be correct. I am looking for information about this family or any information concerning the JONE'S Hill Road area. This area also is connected with SKILLMAN road, so around that time the SKILLMAN's must have been there too. Thank You.
