Alburtis A. CARLEY (1833-1923) Cortland, NY
Query Text: Is the above headline familiar to you? I'm trying to determine why our family's Cortland, NY cemetery plot reads "Carley-Feeter," and why my middle name is Carley, as was my grandfather's middle name (Alburtis Carley Feeter), and why there are several Carley family members buried in the same plot w/ Feeters in the Cortland, NY cemetery, including Alburtis A. Carley (1833-1923). It is said that my g gramps, Frank B. Feeter was raised by the Carley Family in the Cortland County, NY area about mid-to-late 1800s. Does the name Oliver Carley sound familiar? My dad remembers meeting him when Oliver would have been around 45 yrs. old, about 1938 in Cortland; maybe he's descended from Alburtis A. Carley? Also, our family has a NY Civil War belt buckle and sword that is said by my dad to have been given to a Carley for his efforts in forming a regimental company for a Cortland area Civil War regiment. Any clues are GREATLY appreciated!

Query Text: I am looking for Lydia Sweet (born May 4, 1816, died May 24, 1895) and her husband, Truman Hopkins (3/15/1814, Otsego Co., NY - 2/20/1891, Crawford Co, PA). I do not know the parent of either of them. Below is all I know about them... maybe some fact will strike a chord with someone else!
They had three children
Sophronia Hopkins 1842 - 1916 born in Cayuga Co., NY
+John Sweet 1837 ( or 1845?) - 7/30/1918

Charles Hopkins 1843 - 1905 born in Tioga Co PA,
+Amanda Roswell 1845 - 1902
Leroy Hopkins 1844 - 1906
+Elizabeth Morris 1845 - 1906

Lydia and Truman were married in mid November 1837 at the home of Thomas Sweet, Virgil, Cortland Co, NY. Frederick B. Sweet was a witness. In 1891 Frederick B. lived in Potter Co, PA (statement in Truman's civil war pension file -- at least the statement was sworn in Potter Co... possible Frederick could have lived in a neighboring county???).

In the Titusville, PA (Crawford Co) paper that carried Lydia's obituary is a note that her brother "Juid" - perhaps Jude?? - who also lived in Crawford Co, was in town for her funeral. Lydia and Truman were living in Tioga Co., PA in 1843, when their son Charles was born. They are also listed in the 1860 census in Chatham, Tioga Co., PA. They moved to Crawford CO., PA shortly after 1860.

Lydia and Truman's daughter, Sophrona, married John B. Sweet, who was born in Tioga Co PA about 1837. They were married in Wellsboro, NY on 9/12/1858.

Truman and Charles enlisted for the Civil War in 1862 from Crawford Co, PA. Truman was discharged for illness shortly thereafter in Washington, D.C. John B. Sweet was in the same Civil War unit ( Company I, 150th Inf Regt, PA Vol). In 1870 (census records) both Truman and Charles Hopkins and John B Sweet were living in Livingston Co, Michigan. By 1880 Charles Hopkins was back in Crawford Co, PA. Truman and Lydia were also in PA by 1891 (actually, there is reason to believe that all were back by 1875 - John B. Sweet's service record indicates he was. His service record also indicates he was in Kansas in the early 1870's.... were Truman and Lydia????) John B. Sweet and wife Sophronia A. bought land in Genoa twsp in 1867, sold in 1872 when they were living in Kansas. Note for future reference, the same records indicate that Ambrose M. Sweet and wife Maria bought land in Genoa twsp in 1869 and sold in 1872.... Note also the entry for Newberry C. Sweet, from Crawford Co PA also bought land in Genoa twsp; he died in 1874 and his heirs included a John B Sweet (but no Ambrose...). LDS records list a Newberry C. born about 1813. Was he John B's father?

So, the following questions are asked. Who are Lydia Ann Sweet Hopkins' parents? In particular, is Thomas her father? Is this the same Thomas (and wife Lydia) who lived in Tioga in 1850? Is Thomas the same Thomas as in the 1830 Virgil census? Is the Jude in Lydia's obituary the same Jude in the 1850 census? Is Frederick B a bother of Lydia? Who is John B. Sweet, who married Lydia Sweet Hopkin's daughter? Who are Truman Hopkins' parents? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Submitter: A. Wills

Query Text: We are trying to locate my husband's grandfather.His name was Walter Calvin Wills and he married an Elizabeth Flanagan. He died quite young and no one in the family knows much about him except it seems he came from the Homer area. Recently I located a reference on a family tree which I think may refer to him and gives a birth date of Dec 1879. If this is the right person he seems to have had three sisters--Bessie, Mabel and Dora and his grandmother was an Ellis. Any information would be appreciated.

Query Text: Looking for information on a Norris Colliar who was orphaned and taken in by Horace Smith of Cortland County.

The following from "Biographical Review of residents of Broome Co., NY"

"The birthplace of Norris Colliar was in New York State, on the banks of the Hudson River, where he first saw the light in 1821. He was one of a family of six small children who, being early left without parents, were carried to the County House. From that place Norris was taken by Horace Smith, of Cortland County, who brought him up, and proved to be a kind and helpful benefactor.

In my research, I find a Horace Smith that resided in Willet, he is listed on the 1830, 1840, 1850 and 1860 census. Any help on the above information will be greatly appreciated. Darla "Collier" Broady
