HADLOCK, James. Seeking information about the parents and wife of James HADLOCK b. Dec. 25, 1752 in Fishkill as stated in his Rev. War papers. He enlisted from Kinderhook and he had lived in Cortland Patent on the Delaware. I only know of Cortlandt Patent/Manor in Westchester Co. NY. Can anyone help me with who his parents are and where they came from? His wife's name at the time of his death in 1836 was Asa. A history article on one of his children says mother was Nancy of Scotch descent. Is there another Cortlandt Patent somewhere in NY on the Delaware? Since Fishkill didn't become officially a town until much later where exactly would he have been born? I have searched for this man's parents for many years. None of the researchers I've been able to find has any knowledge of his parentage either. Selma Bonewald jbonew@setnet.net 0697
