James S. Conklin   (reply) Posted by: lhiattpt
Date Posted: February 20, 2016, 3:22pm
Yes, you are correct Larry.  I made the error of asking for the 123rd Regiment from the National Archives pension file and received the pension of the wrong James H. Conklin.

Unfortunately, it cost me another $80 to get the correct file.     I have the other James Conklin's information:
The James H. Conklin that served in the 123rd Regiment was born in Argyle, NY and died Nov 8, 1904.  He was married to Hannah Bibbons per the pension file. They had 2 children.

The James Henry Conklin that served in the 124th Regiment Company K had a birthday that corresponds to the one I listed above in the guardianship file. He married Mary Ann Meguey (McGoey) .  Mary Ann was b...

James S. Conklin   (reply) Posted by: lkarl

My name is Larry Karl and I descend from James Henry Conklin, civil war veteran and member  of the famous Orange Blossoms. He was with the 124th regiment, company K of the N.Y.S. volunteers.  I have a copy of his obituary that states his father's name was James Clark Conklin, husband of Sarah Strickland.  Does anyone have any info on both of them?

My Murray ancestors married into the Conklin family via my gg grand father James Slaine Murray. Of his father and uncles, at least one, Hugh E. Murray was born in Westtown, NY.  For years I have been attempting to obtain the name of by ggg grandfather and his wife Sarah Slaine Murray. If anyone has info on them living in the Minisink area, I woul...

I am the g-g-grandaughter of Caleb Conklin who can be found in the (Minisink) Wawayanda 1850 census.  We have recently found his parents who were
James S. Conklin and Sally or Sarah Strickland.  Caleb was born in 1828 and was the oldest of the children under the age of 21 when his father died in 1847.  James the father and Caleb were Shoemakers.  Caleb married Catherine Gould Nov 14, 1849 in Minisink NY.  Caleb then moved to Greenville, Orange County, NY in 1853 and in 1855 was is Oneida, Delaware County, IA and he appears to have died before 1860.
I know there are a lot of Conklin's in this area.  James and Sarah Conklin had 8 children that we know of from the guardian...

Burgard/Wilbert, Deerpark and Huguenot 1850-1900 Posted by: joeprice
Date Posted: October 8, 2012, 8:14pm
Hello,

I am looking for information on the Burgard or Wilbert families in Huguenot or Deer Park, 1848-1901.

I am seeking info on several people:

1) My great-great uncle, David Burgard, born in the Deerpark area about 22 Oct 1851 to Elizabeth Wilbert (1830-1920 buried St Mary's cemetery, Port Jervis) and George Burgard (1819-1897, also buried in St Mary's).

According to his father George's obit and estate records, David Burgard lived in Huguenot around 1897-1900 and disappears from all records after 1900. I assumed that he died in either 1900. He is not in the 1900 census and his brother's (John Burgard) obituary states that John had 3 brothers (Frank, George jr., Christopher), suggesting that Dav...

Charles Edward McCann Posted by: diacam
Date Posted: April 23, 2012, 3:10pm
My gr grandfather McCann's beginning is a mystery.  All records I have found show him being born in Pt. Jervis, 14 May 1878; three years before the county kept birth records.  The family story is told when he was about 8 yrs old, he came home from school and both his parents had been killed or died, and he was raised by a woman named Edna Ball.  His parents listed on his death cert, are Edward McCann and (no first name)- Bixby. The family story is sketchy and I cannot find them in 1880 census anywhere!  I don't know of any siblings.... He eventually settled in Honesdale, PA and married Anna Fasshauer. He has a great genealogy trail after that!

Was just wondering if anyone has ever come acr...

For the most comprehensive research done about the Swartwout Family, i recommend Swartwout Chronicles by Arthur Weise. It will be helpful to note - Antoni Swarwout's Widow was Jannetje Jacobusse COOBES. i have never seen her referred to a COOMBES.  i have seen her refered to as a "Sister of the Swartwouts" (Historty of Deepark Peter E. Gumaer) which wasn't entirely false she was a sister by Law to the Swartwouts when she married Harmanus Barentsen Van Inwegen. for those who do not know me, i live in Mamakating (Sullivan) area just North of Deerpark (Orange) - i have lived here nearly all my life, researching over 30 years & am very familiar with the terrain, people & records. A Gumaer Book has been in the works &...

Crawford family of Minisink   (reply) Posted by: BBMountain
Date Posted: October 20, 2011, 2:22pm
Hello Crawford Cousins,
I flow from the line of one of Moses' sisters, Mary Polly.  She married Moses Depue of Sandystown, NJ (though it probably was not called that then) and somehow ended up in Hopewell, Ontario County, NY.  Their daughter, Osee, married Thomas Brundage and they ventured to Ohio where they raised a family near McCutchenville. The next generation ventured even further, Wyoming in the 1860's-1870's.   But, I really don't have much info on the Crawfords. Where were they before the Minisink area?  Thanks, Bonnie

Rhodes/Roades s a common name.  My ancestor Benjamin Rhodes was from Connecticut but that's as far as I can go back.  He died in 1815 and the family ended up in Center Moriches, and his grandaughter, Mary Catherine Rhodes was married to my ggg grandfather, Gilbert King Vail, who was born Mamakating in 1820.  I'm not sure if they met in Orange County or Suffolk County.

Hermanus Van Inwegen - the Peenpack Patent   (reply) Posted by: Carbin
Date Posted: April 23, 2011, 7:28am
Quoted from Helen_Graves
Does anyone know specifically how Hermanus Van Inwegen acquired his land in the Peenpack Patent?  Does a deed or some other document exist?

History books are not quite clear on how Van Inwegen obtained land there.  One source says he was invited to join the first settlers because they needed him.  

My guess is, he did not come to the area until after his first child was bp in  1702 in Kingston.  He was living in Kingston and had a job dressing flax there, per published genealogies about him.

No history book of the Peenpack neighborhood mentions the fact that Anthony Swartwout of Kingston (one of the original 7 Peenpack purchasers) died c. 1700.  After his death, his widow Jannetke C

McCarty/Crawford Family in Milford PA Posted by: kevinmac
Date Posted: April 9, 2011, 8:57pm
Hi,
I'm looking for info regarding my great-grandfather Uriah McCarty who was born in Milford in 1860. His father was Uriah Alexander McCarty, whose mother descended from the Van Auken family and his (the younger Uriah) mother was Olive Rockwell Crawford who descended from the Hazen family. Uriah married a servant girl from Ireland and moved his family, including my paternal grandmother, down to Brooklyn shortly after 1900.
This part of my family tree all lived in the Minisink area from the 1600's until Uriah moved to Brooklyn.

Any help appreciated. I'm a member of ancestry.com if you want to contact me there as kevinmac200. I am travelling to the Minisink area early next month as well.

Thanks!

Hi Leonie,

Responding to your request re: William Crawford and Catherine Smith. They were my 5th great-grandparents. Their oldest son was Moses whose son in turn was William Crocker Crawford who was my great-great-grandmother's father. I've been able to track back quite a bit from my late aunt's genealogy work and ancestry.com from other family lines.

Let me know what you're looking for or contact me via ancestry.com if you are a member there. I am kevinmac200 there.

It so happens that I am travelling east from California next month to visit the Minisink Valley as my grandmother's family was all in the area from the early 18th century until about 1900 when she and her family moved to Brooklyn.

afraid not. Port Jervis was named about 1825 after the President of the Delaware & Hudson Canal Company - John B. Jervis.  During the timeframe you are referring to it town was known as Magheckemeck.

Helen you need to get a hold of Swartwout Chronicles which does have a map of the divisions of the Peenpack Patent; whereas it is called the Mackheckemeck Patent in same book.  the divisios were not clear until the Patent was dissolved abt 100 years later.
