Which Family Sketch subject are you related to? Sybella Browne
Comments:
In the section detailing Charles W Hutchinson, Sybella Browne is cited as being Holmes’ mother’s godmother but it should say his mothers GRANDMOTHER. I found the orginal wording in “Memorial History of Utica, N.Y.: From Its Settlement to the Present Timeö

“He married Elizabeth Mack, March 30, 1791. They had ten children, Holmes being the second son. His mother's grandmother was Sybella Browne, the only daughter of Sir John Browne, Viscount Montague, of Londonderry, Ireland, who married John Mack, who with his wife and William, his son, came from the town of Armagh to America in 1732 and settled at Londonderry, N. H. Tradition records that Isabella Browne, the cousin of Sybella, was married to the grandfather of Gov. George Clinton, of New York.ö

I think the last post should think about how great it is to be able to find your family history and be thankful. Her poor son will never be able to know that not knowing where he comes from. We should remember how lucky we are to be able to research these things. Not everyone has this privilege. :(

Which Family Sketch subject are you related to? George M and Philip Studer/Studor
Comments:
I just added some info; now I have a question: Does anyone have any information on Philip's son, Ray Evans Studor (1884-1959) who married Florence Gross in Ontario, Canada. He had two daughters, but do not know their names. He died is Quebec and is buried in Canada. Ray's sister, Mabel, was married, but had no children. His sister, Frances Anita, never married. So, Ray's two daughers are the only descendants of that family.

Comments:
The page http://home.comcast.net/~richardson156/rogerspv.html reports that Publius V. Rogers is a descendant of Capt James Rogers, which is not true. Capt James Rogers descendants of that time all lived in Canada see http://Rogers.LOOKinHERE.net/ Besides Daniel E. Wager's story also claims Puplius V. Rogers is descended from the pilgrim, Thomas Rogers, of who Capt James Rogers is not descended. Capt James Rogers came from Ireland in 1729 as a child with his parents James and Mary Rogers. Captain James Rogers was raised in Dunbarton, NH and moved to Londonderry, VT where he owned 23,000 acres at that time known as Kent which was granted by the governor of NY. Because he was a Tory he removed to Fredericksburg, Ontario after the War of Independence. His son James and daughter Margaret sold his land in Vermont after his death.

Publius V. Rogers is more likely descended from the other James Rogers (2nd James) of Londonderry who’s wife was Jean. Many people get this James Rogers confused with Capt. James Rogers father James. Capt. James Rogers had married Margaret McGregor of Londonderry, NH which is probably where all the confusion comes from. His Family never actually lived in Londonderry, VT, but did own land there held by the McGregors.

I am descended from 3 James Rogers who are my 4th, 5th (Capt James Rogers) and 6th great grandfathers. Capt. James Rogers died in 1790 in Fredericksburg, Ontario as a Colonel and is a famous Canadian United Empire Loyalist. Capt James Rogers had 3 sons, a David who died at age 4 then James and a 2nd David who both died in Grafton, Canada. A great granddaughter of James Rogers, Mary Allen Rogers married Christopher Darius Gorman who was born June 30, 1846 in Utica. Christopher was the son of John Gorman and Esther Mead who were married in Rome on March 14, 1846. The gamily moved to Pierce County, Wisconsin in the early 1850’s. In the Civil War, C.D. Gorman played the fife with Mary Allen’s brother Timothy Rogers, who played the drum. They were both wounded in the Red River Campaign in Louisiana and returned to Wisconsin.

Mary Allen Rogers came from a family of 17 children, her parents were David Rogers and Eliza Hinman, who’s Hinman family had migrated to Grafton, Ontario from Pompey Hollow near Syracuse in 1799. David Rogers is a son of James Rogers and Grandson of Capt. James Rogers who’s brother was the famous Maj. Robert Rogers, leader of Rogers’ Rangers, depicted in the Spencer Tracy movie “Northwest Passageö.

Comments:
He is my Great Uncle. I have placed two obituaries on the Oneida County Genweb for him and one for his son, Wilbur VA. Would love to hear from any other relatives and/or any one with info about Myron's other son, Clarence VA.

Myron married Carrie Rice on 2 Jul 1876 in Fairfield. He died 11 Aug 1931 in Faxon Hospital, Utica, NY.

Thank you for putting all these biographies on line!

Which Family Sketch subject are you related to? Heyd or Hyde & Howe
Comments:
Nothing found for Heyd or Hyde families who migrated to Oneida Co. near Rome, NY in about mid 1800s. Howe famly lived in Oneida County much earlier, also not found. But the effort you have put into this remarkable website is truly commendable, valuable, and should serve as a model to others who have access to historical and persons-specific publications,most of which are out of print. Thanks a bunch.

Which Family Sketch subject are you related to? Abbott (in Keith Sketch)
Comments:
I was pleasantly surprised to find my 3rd great grandfather (O B Abbott) mentioned in the bio of Charles B. Keith as his business partner. In Orren B. Abbott's will Keith was identified as his business partner & named as an executor of his will. I wonder if it was a coincidence that one of Orren's grandsons, the only one named in his will, was named "Harry" & one of Keith's sons was also "Harry."

Which Family Sketch subject are you related to? Horace Bigelow (under H.P. Bigelow)
Comments:
My husband's ancestor, James Ayer Smith, was apprenticed to Horace Bigelow, a hatter, sometime before 1828. James was born in Paris, Oneida, NY, but took his family to Chicago in 1835 where he established a successful hat and cap manufacturing firm. Later, in the 1860s, he became part-owner of the North West Fur Association, and ran steamboats up the Missouri River to trade at the forts. James and his sons (who worked with him) lost most of their stock in the 1871 Chicago fire. James married Marcia Mahala Swetland of Waterville.
