Does anyone know the surname of Daniel NICHOLS' wife, Temperance, both of Danbury? My line is: Sgt. Francis, Isaac, Caleb, Samuel, Josiah, Daniel, Ezra, Eli, Ezra, Henry, Archie, Robert, Marilyn (myself). Any help would be greatly appreciated and any family members' info would be appreciated.

Been searching my husband's g-grandfather, Nicholas N. NICHOLS for 21 years. Have I found him in Herkimer Co? The 1830 Census has NICHOLDS, Nicholds N. in Stark and KNAUGHT, Jacob in Stark. Nicholas N. Nichols had a son Jacob and he always used the middle initial N. Nicholas also had a son Henry whose mother is recorded as Ann KNAW(KNAUGHT?).

Nicholas N. Nichols is found in 1845 in Chautauqua Co. with wife Susan and his children. For the first time in 21 years I think I might have the right family and hope my query on your page will bring some positive results. I have a great deal of info to share from 1845 to today. Your page is super! Check the Hidalgo Co, TX page. I do the research. Louise Shultz.

Louise Schultz Tue Nov 19 1996 (Just received 12/17/96)
Nicholas N. NICHOLS/(Nicholds N. NICHOLDS?) b. 1794 m. Ann KNAW/(KNAUGHT?) and Susan.

Children of Nicholas: Jacob, Betsey Ann, Henry, Mary, Sloma/Saloma, Harriet, Nicholas, Ester/Altheare, Thomas, Charles, and Gilbert.

Is the Nicholds N. Nicholds in the 1830 census of Stark, Herkimer Co., the father of the listed children and husband of Ann? Who is Susan and which children belong to which wife? The 1830 census has a Jacob NAUGHT on the same page as Nicholds N. Nicholds in Stark. Note that the first son is Jacob. Also Nicholas N. Nichols in all found records since 1845 uses the "N." The family is found in Chautauqua Co. in 1845 and 1850. They moved to Carroll Co. IL in 1853. More than willing to share.

Seeking descendents of Kilburn NOTT b. Windsor County, VT in 1765, was living in Montgomery County NY in 1799 when son Justus (Justice) Nott was born. Wife was Hannah E Nott who died in Lyme, Jefferson Co, NY in 1854. Will gladly exchange info with other descendents. Would also like to hear from anyone who has access to names of early residents of Montgomery County. e-mail to clatsie@aol.com

Lynne H. DeMont Mon April 14 1997
John NOTTINGHAM, 1800-1810 census, possible father of James Nottingham, lived in Warren or Warren Township in Herkimer County. According to Lake County Illinois history, early settlers arrived there from Warren Township, Herkimer County, NY. They named their Illinois settlement Warren Township.

The succession possibly goes like this:

Additional note: there are two Nottinghams listed in the 1790 New York census--both in Ulster County--Stephen and Margaret. These people are descendants of Captain William Nottingham who arrived in America in 1664. I'm hoping that John Nottingham is the son of one or the other of these two people. The Ulster County Nottinghams have a tracable history.

One final question. How can I find church records for Warren Township, New York? I'm willing to write any number of letters. Thank you so much for your interest and help.


Dan Brennan Wed Apr 30 1997
O'BRIEN : Herkimer, Herkimer, NY. The SSDI lists three O'BRIENS; Anne (1904-1987), Thomas (1908-1978) and Walter (1879-1966) Is anyone familiar with this family? Is this the O'Brien family that lived in Utica in 1921? Were Anne and Thomas the children of Walter? Was Walter a Civil Engineer who was married to Anne BRENNAN (or BRINNING) of Watertown, NY? I am attempting to trace all the descendants of my Brennan family from Franklin and St. Lawrence Co.'s. The O'Briens I am looking for would be descended from Henry Brennan (1855-?) who used an anglicized version of the Brennan name - Brinning. Dan Brennan.

Elizabeth Osborn Mon May 12 1997
I am looking for my gg-grandfather and his parents. His name was George OSBORNE. He married Sarah Rathbun, the daughter of Thomas RATHBUN. The Rathbuns were from Norway, N.Y. My gg- grandfather was born in New York and later followed the Rathbuns to Wisconsin. I think their families must have lived close to each other before the move to Wisconsin. I found an Asa Osborn listed in the Fairfield lodge directory. If there is a connection would someone let me know. Thank You, Elizabeth

Daniel OSTERHOUT came from Root, Montgomery County N.Y. He was born 1833. He came to Michigan and is listed in census with John Osterhout family. I believe this is his father as several of John's sons are listed as brothers to Daniel in his obituary. John is married to an Eliza who seems to be too young to be Daniel's mother however. Would appreciate it if anyone has records of these people and their lives in Montgomery County, N.Y. Any information of the Osterhout family would be appreciated. Thank you.

Barbara Britt Sat Mar 22 1997
