Rosemarie A. Denis Sun Sep 22 1996 I just found something on the 1880 census and it may be something for me. I am currently living in Japan, so doing research for myself is a little hard. The name I found was Alexander ETHERTON, age 21, a resident employee in Daniel MOYERS home. My grandmother has a brother named Alexander Etherton. According to my grandmother, her mother was born in Little Falls; she doesn't remember where her father was born. This is the information she gave me: Charles ETHERTON (1886-1942) married Ida May or Mae ANEVRY (1900-1963). Charles and Ida's children were: Anna May or Mae, Edith (Grandmother), William, Charles Jr., Lena, Alexander, Emma, James William DINGHAM (half-brother). Any information would be extremely helpful. Thank you. Rosemarie A. Denis. Home Page ishttp://www.geocities.com/Heartland/8132.

Update: 10/3 - I have made a hit so to speak. I posted a query about the Alexander Etherton i found in the 1880 census. I thought I would take a wild stab at asking my grandmother if she could remember her grandfather's name. I couldn't believe she said Alexander Etherton. I just about fell out of my chair. With his age in 1880, the location, the fact that my Grandmother has a brother named Alexander, and that I found no other Ethertons in New York as of yet, I can't help but believe this Alexander Etherton is my grandmother's grandfather. Since I am positive he is I thought I would add what my grandmother told me. She thinks that Alexander's wife's name was Lena. She doesn't know if they had any other children besides Charles Etherton.

Esther Frye Sun Sep 22 1996 I am looking for the descendents of the children of John and Desire (DOWNING) HAKES, who lived in German Flats, NY. Children were:

1 John Hakes Jr, born 1777, married Catherine NASH
2. Solomon Hakes, born 1779
3. Noble or Josiah Hakes, born 1782
4. Anna Hakes, born 1786 married John BROCK
5. Mary Hakes, born 1788 married John OSBORN
6. Nathan H Hakes, born 1791 married Margaret WHITBECK
7. Nancy Hakes, born 1791 (twin to Nathan) married Cyrus or James CARTWRIGHT
8. Matilda Hakes, born 1793 married a BUEL

If any of these names appear familiar to any of the readers there in Cyberspace, would you please contact me via my e-mail address? Other surnames affiliated with this line are WHEELER, MONTGOMERY, DAILEY, DOWNING, BABCOCK, SPALDING, ODEL, and BILLINGS.

Nathan H. Hakes was my ancestor. I am also descended from Ephraim Joseph Wheeler, whose father was Thomas Wheeler and his wife Mary (MUNROE) Wheeler. These two lines of the HAKES and WHEELER families are interconnected. Thanks for your time.

Carl W. Phillips Fri Sep 20 1996
Seeking parents of David C. BETTS, born 1803. Family tradition says he was born in Amsterdam, NY but I have found no trace. Since this area was heavily settled by Palatines, could name be spelled differently?. That is the only spelling the family has seen. He lived in Indian Territory (OK) from about 1844-70. He then disappeared from the records in OK. Some say he returned to NY. Any assistance very gratefully appreciated. Thank you.

I would like to find his grave as well as an obituary if possible. Also I wonder if his wife Anna (VAN VREDENBURGH) CRAMER might also be buried there. Their children, born between 1795 and 1812, were Frederick B, Catherine COMPTON, John R, Jeremiah F, William C, Bernard S and Peter D. Perhaps there is information in Montgomery County relating to my ancestors Jeremiah F (b. 1803) & Julia Ann (SHOEMAKER) CRAMER whose graves I have not yet found. Any information or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi! I was just wondering if you have a book on early residents of your county? I am looking for info on Samuel WATERS and his wife, Hester (SMITH). Samuel is listed in Herkimer County in the 1800, 1810, 1820 and 1830 Census. I am hoping that this is my Samuel Waters. They had a son Harvey born to them in 1802 or 1807. You know, there's a lot of Samuel Waters' in NY during this period! Thank you for any assistance you may offer. Ronnie. Please contact me at: Mira772966@aol.com.
