Wonderful site: I have federal census documentation my great-great-grandfather John C. Van Blarcum was born in Cayuga County in 1808, and that he married Laura Powers of Massachusetts in Cayuga Co. in about 1830. Their older children were born there before they relocated in (perhaps) the early 1840s to Woods County, OH. If you have any information about them or their parentage I would be most grateful.

I am a descendant of one Samuel Bishop, b. abt 1784 in CT, my 3G Grandfather. In the late 1790's he came to CC. From the 1800 CC Census records, it appearss there were three Bishop families but, from the way they did the census' in those day, he was probably listed as an unnamed minor male (at that point he may have only been 15-16?) If I knew which of these families he was in, I'd have a better way of tracking him back to CT, which has so far been a very high blank wall, even though I know there are thousand of Samuel Bishops in CT's early history?
Do you know whether any of CC's Bishop families hailed from CT??.
Anyway, in 1803 he married an Esther Bathrick b. abt 1786 in Leverette, MA and eventually also emigrated to CC with her father, Tillabee Bathrick. Samuel and Esther quickly had two sons Samuel and Barnwell in CC before they emmigdrated to Sweden, Monoroe County, NY where they had three more children.
Do you know where I might find the Bishop/Bathrick marriage record or the birth/baptismal records of their two sons? Have you ever came across a Tillabee Bathrick will?
Any information you have will be greatly appreciated and, likewise, I'll be happy to share with you any info that I may have to help you fill in any open spaces.
Best Regards, John W. Palmroth

I am stuck with the Oakley family in Niles Cayuga, Ny. Technically his name is James Henry Oakley but he went by Henry all his life and he have went by something else in the 1840's census. He could have fit in Henry and John Oakley who were 15-20years. I don't know who his parents where or his wife. Who is only told as Sally no maiden name. He did fight in the civil war. I am related to his daughther Josephine Oakley who married to James King in Clymer Pa. Henry? moved to Clymer and left Cayuga by 1870. He is buried in Canisteo, Ny because he need to be near the Bath Veteran's Hospial when he was in his seventies. His real birth was1822 but is wrong on the census. I would love to find his parents and grandparents ect. I also am in search of James King's father Alonzo King's parents. He married simply a Sally. I have no maiden name. He was living in Clymer Pa. I wonder why the Oakley moved here. I also why the King's where raising a infant named Polly Oakley as an infant. I believe she eventually changed her last name to King. It is said Alonzo parent's where born in Ny consistantly in census's. I could use any help you have especially from the Oakley's. Please email me. I know there were 10 Oakleys around 1840's I believe there is only a Henry and a John that are the right age.

This is a shot in the dark but I do know that Louisa Marsh was living in Cayuga County with father Thomas Marsh and that she married Horace Wetherell of Vermont during this time period. If the records exist, is it possible to have someone from your society research for these names? I will be happy to pay for any research. Thank you. Donna Nichols

So pleased to have seen this autograph book. Mother Bluff was my great great aunt Harriett who was born in the Northamptonshire village of Ashton and married william bluff in 1849. They sailed from Liverpool in 1854 on the black hawk packet ship which ran into bad weather and sank, fortunately they were transferred to another ship the Currituck which took them on to New York. I wonder if there are any family photos available or perhaps of the store they had. Would love to hear more.

I am a 75 year old descendent of Jeremiah (Darby) Murphy of Auburn. Darby owned and lived at 103 Lansing Street (current address ). My daughter Katherine Murphy Morris JUST visited this home for the first time and introduced herself to the current owner Edward Wasilienko. I hope to come to Auburn in the next week or so to visit the home. Also, the home of Darby's son James at what I believe is 132 North Fulton Street. My father was born in 1900 and raised at 136 Fulton Street. I know little about researching in property records etc., but would like to learn more about my ancestors homes and their ownership. How do I do this ? How can I research for any local newspapers. I have been told there were articles about Darby's mother Esther (Etty ) because she claimed to be 100 when near death. We doubt this to be true. More like 92. I have all the Civil War military records for James Murphy who served in the Cayuga County 9th New York Heavy Artillery.
In short ... I would like to link up with someone in Cayuga County as I finish up my family's history. I know the whole Ireland end from County Kildare. Will be sending a very nice headstone for Darby Murphy's grave at St. Joseph's Cemetery in the near future.
Can we communicate ?

Visiting to find/research my mother's Bray/e genealogy. It is said Andrew Bray, Sr. (04 Jul 1763, Kingwood, Hunterdon County, NJ; 26 Jan 1849, Richmond, Ontario County, NY), first resided in the Village of Cayuga (1800-1806), Scipio Center (1808), and Springport (1809-1815) before relocating later to the Richmond, Ontario County, NY area. Wife of Andrew, Sr., is said to have been Mary Yawger Parlee Barkley (08 Dec 1774/NJ; Nov 1849). Records for Andrew, Sr., have been difficult to locate; he may have resided with spouse(s) families.

Hello, I am researching information regarding Mr. Peter Kurtz, a German immigrant who worked in a shoe shop in Auburn, NY around 1880-1910. He was a violinist and met Mr. Thomas Mott Osborne and because Osborne's family handyman. Mr. Osborne introduced him to Mr. David Mannes, Mr. Mannes had recently married Mr. Osborne sister. Peter continued learning under Mr. Mannes. Within (1) year Peter had made such progress that Mannes made him his Asst. Director (possibly Auburn Children's Orchestra). A few years later, shortly after Peter had turned (20 yrs. old) Mr. Mannes recieved a call from a Mr. Richard Mansfield. Mansfield had invested $60,000 in what was perhaps his most ambitious enterprise, the first american production of "Peer Gynt". Looking about him for a conductor who had youth and poetry, he selected Osborne's protege (Peter Kurtz). The Play opened in Chicago.
I am looking for anything other information regarding Peter that I can find and I mean any. Peter was my grandfathers uncle, I am unsure of any other information regarding this. I also am a descendant of the Philip Yawger family of Cayuga, NY.
Anything would help enormously, thank you.

It also was one over from her grandmother's; the one next to it was a Civil War soldier. <br>I'm also looking for relatives of Theodore Ruggles Timby, who invented a type of turret for Civil War monitors: the inventor of the Monitor had to pay him royalties.

Bankson, his wife was Sarah Burnham and she married 2 more times after he died around 1845. I found one A. Bankson in the census records in this county so here I am. Trying one more time before I close the file on A. Thanks for making a great site and wish me luck. <br>Robbi Cross Hoy

I am doing research on the Davis family who lived in Lock Cayuga County in 1810, Solomon Davis married Sarah Bancroft daughter of Stephen Bancroft Sr. I am Trying to locate the parents of Solomon Davis. I suspect that Nathan Davis Sr. who was living there in the 1820 census is his father. Nathan died in Groton NY. Do you have an index of Land Grantee and Grantor records there in the Society? A Copy of them would help me very much. I would a copy of the actual index including all names of Davis-Davidson etc. in that section from 1810 to 1850. Would you have that?
I have been able to get copies of these from other New york Counties and it helped so much with my locating these families. I expect to pay for the service and the copies.
Thank you P Davis Keyes

Name: Patty Ashby Reynolds <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2002-11-17 Comments:
Last time I hit this page, it wasn't nearly as well thought out as now.
I have a Query: My great grandfather, JAMES ASHBY married (1858) HARRIET ELIZA STEBBINS (b. Chicopee Falls, Mass. 1838)in Fayetteville, Onondaga Co. but was living 1860 with the Ashby family at the American Hotel in Auburn; BENJAMIN ASHBY, his father was the proprietor.
HARRIET ELIZA ASHBY AND SON BENJAMIN, my grandfather, were baptized in the Auburn Episcopal Church in 1866. I've been unable to find out what happened to her, but I suspect that she and James split up, as James was living in Cortland in 1880 with a new wife and son HENRY ASHBY, age 3. (Henry was grandfather's half brother.)
Since grandfather BENJAMIN STEBBINS ASHBY named his son (my Dad) CORYDON MERRIMAN ASHBY,I suspect that HARRIET ELIZA STEBBINS ASHBY remarried the son of Charles H. Merriman, who was living with his wife and son CORYDON MERRIMAN next door to the American hotel, in 1960.
My Dad never knew why he was named CORYDON MERRIMAN ASHBY, but this seems a likely reason he was given this crazy name.. Does anyone have any information on this ?

Also, thank you for posting the Census data you have. My Brown's went from Cayuga County, NY to Steuben County, IN & to Calhoun County, MI. MI & NY have done great work with their GenWeb sites. And, the Library of MI, has a wonderful 1870 Census online. Michigan Early Marriages have been posted by the Dibean's & include many NY immigrants to MI~including Harmon G. Brown & Carrie M. Wallin who were from Cayuga County, but married in Calhoun Co., MI in May of 1879.

There I found back my in 1854 to Throop emigrated family van der Loo in the USA named: Vanderloo. After a long search I found a part of the descendants of this emigrant., who belongs to the family van de/der Loo/ Loe from the Land of Cleef between Rhine and Meuse (partly noble and partly non-noble), where they were already mentioned in 1359.
Now I have a (from my site hard) but wonderfull e-mail contact with this descendants.

My ancestors John Jacob Randall and Amy Shotwell Randall lived in Mentz prior to 1838.They had a daughter Mary Randall born in 1809,who married Thomas Jefferson,probably in Cayuga County prior to 1830, the date when their first child was born (The Jefferson family is shown in the 1830 census living near the Randalls and Amy Randall's brother, David Shotwell).I am trying to learn more about the Jefferson family link, and I know Mentz was first named Jefferson, before the name was changed. Could there be a connection? I find no other Jeffersons in the Cayuga census and no reason why the name Jefferson was chosen then changed.

I am looking for a male relative of Italian background who would have lived in the Union Springs/Springport area, possibly Ledyard in early 1900 and would have been married around 1921 give or take a couple years. Not much to go on but there should have been very few Italians in those villages then.

I moved from Lansing, NY to Spartanburg, SC two years ago. While in upstate NY, I attended the the bathtub races in Moravia for many years. I was telling a student at this college about the races and when he asked for more information I started searching the web. I was surprised that the Moravia website doesn't offer more information about the races and the other events that are held on that weekend in July. This is a missed opportunity to have more visitors to the area. If there is more information about the Moravia bathtub races, would you please send me the website information? I encourage people to visit the Finger Lakes area because it is so beautiful.

Love your site! I am seeking information on my 3rd great grandfather, Joshua LADUE 1794-1865. A bio. states "Joshua La Due was born August 2, 1794, at Auburn, N. Y., where he was married, in 1816, to Julia Ann Cowles of Connecticut. It is believed that Joshua's father was Abraham Ladow b. c. 1774. Joshua Ladue was a veteran of the War of 1812, he entered service at Cayuga Bridge (Cayuga County) about the 25th of March, 1814. He claimed 44 miles from the town of Brutus, at which he was drafted, to Cayuga Bridge where he was mustered into service. Other than these references I have never been able to find any other connection to Cayuga County. I would appreciate any help that may be available.

I have been using the Cayuga Co. website for the past week and I just wanted to tell you that it is an excellent web site. Thank you to all the people who have done the cemetery listings. And thank you for all the other lists. I appreciate your search engine for the web site. It was very, very helpful. Your web site is one of the best county websites in New York. Thank you! Thank you!

Thanks to all who have worked to develope a great web site. I have had some success in researching relatives named Bircher who lived in Wayne and Cayuga counties during the late 1800's. Cemetery and census records have proved beneficial so far and I'm still searching other areas of the web site. Anyone researching Jacob and Anna Bircher please feel free to contact me. Robert Hageman

Great job on getting info out on the Cayuga County site. Are there plans to add more vital records info online?
The Montezuma, Aurelius and Scipio records online are great!
The mortuary schedules from the 1855,1865,1875,1885 NYS census records by township would be a great aid to supplement available vital records.
Another nice addition might be scanned pages of the Biographical Review of the Leading Citizens of Cayuga County, Biographical sketches from the 1904 Century Atlas ,
or biographical sketches from Harry R. Malone's 1929 Sullivan/Clinton Sesquisentenial volume. There were several Cayuga County families outlined in that CNY volume.
I know all of these take time and effort to setup.
Keep up the great work!

It has been my pleasure to "meet" Susan and Bernie Corcoran! They have been most helpful in the search for my ancestors. Three years ago, I started searching for my g-g-grandparents. I only knew their names and the approximate area they were from. With the help of the Cayuga County Website and assistance from the Corcorans, I was able to reconstruct a large portion of my family. There are still some missing pieces, but I feel confident they will turn up as this wonderful site continues to provide the researchers with the information they seek.
