HAIGHT
Query Text: Looking for the family of James M.HAIGHT. 1880 NY Fed Census has him living in Homer with daughters Lula age 16, Madge age 13 and Maude age 8. James' age is 49. His occupation is listed as taxidermist. There is no wife listed, who was she?? Madge went on to marry George Hurlbert and they lived in Cuyler.

HAIGHT
Query Text: I'm seeking any information on James H. Haight and his descendants. From what I can gather, James H. Haight married an Ada Bouton on January 24, 1827 in Albany County, New York. They then moved to the Cortland County area. He was registered in the 1830 census in the town of Freetown, 1840 in the town of Virgil, 1850 in the town of Cortlandville, and then back in Freetown in 1860.

Also recorded in the 1860 census was a James H. Haight, Jr. in Freetown. James & Ada had two other sons, David B. and George H. that I can document, but James I cannot. I am looking for a solid connection between James H. Haight and James H. Haight, Jr. It would be a logical assumption that they are directly related because of the names, but I need definite dates. According to information passed down from my family, James H. Haight (Jr.? - my family makes no mention of a Jr.) married a Deziah\Desiah\Desire Kent from either Truxton or Homer area. They had a daughter, Madge E. Haight, who was my g-g-grandmother.

James H. Haight & Ada were buried in Forest Hill cemetary near Blodgett Mills, but I cannot find any trace of James H. Haight & Deziah Kent. My g-g-grandmother grew up in the Truxton area & she and my g-g-grandfather, George hurlbert, are buried in the Cuyler cemetary. I would think that they stayed in the area since their family did.

If anyone has any information, it would be greatly appreciated! I can trace James H Haight's ancestors back to 1545, but I need some information so that I can link it all together! I'm looking for any birth, death or marriage dates, etc. I have some information, but I am doubting the accuracy of the information because some of the information seems to conflict with what my family has passed along, etc. Michael Seamans

KENT
Query Text: I am looking for documentation on Ada M. KENT. Family records say she was born May 28, 1863 in Truxton, NY. Her father was Alson Kent and mother was Jane ORTON. Alson Kent was born Sept 22, 1835 in NY and the father of Alson is said to be Ashley Kent. Has anyone done any work on this particular KENT family? I have much more information on Ada Kent who married Charles ROBINSON in Wisconsin in 1884.

Thanks for any help. Barbara in Canada
