James SCARBOROUGH, his wife Sarah, and their children, William and Mary Ann, arrived in New York City from London, England aboard the Yorktown on November 12, 1855. They immediately settled in Hartland, Niagara, New York where they added six more children to their family. Most of the descendants of James and Sarah still live in Niagara, Orleans, and Genessee Counties. I am looking for contacts from all descending lines. I would also like to know if they had relatives or friends in Hartland who attracted them to the area - Dec 1999
