Query Text: I have been researching the Cortland County site and have found little to help in my quest. I am researching my family's migration pattern from Essex County, NY to Allegany County, NY. William S. Rork married a Permelia Wadsworth who was born in Courtland County in 1826. I believe that this should have been Cortland County. Their first daughter, Mary E. was born in Allegany County in 1846 and the 1855 census shows the family living in Chautauqua County, in the town of Hanover. There they had three more children, Zada, Ella, and Frank Rork. Later, William and Permelia moved to Missouri, then settled in Pecatonica, Illinois. Permelia died there in childbirth in 1861 but a Roxanna Wadsworth, born in NY. is shown living with the family in Illinois in 1870. She may have been a sister to Permelia but would have been 14 years younger than her. I find an Archibald Wadsworth living in Courtland County in the 1820 and 1840 censuses in Homer. Does anyone have information on this! family?

Uriah married and lived in Cincinnatus most of his life -- he is buried in the upper Cincinnatus Cemetery with his wife Elizabeth Bush. Any help would be appreciated.
