CALDER - Lumber rafters in Dehli approx 1864. Looking for further information on this family. Bernie Ponzio - posted 10-2001

CALEB - I'm researching my 3rd Grt. Grandfather and his family. All I know of him is that his name was Peter B. Caleb, he was born in Hancock, Delaware County, N.Y. on August 3rd, 1801. He married Catherine Stevenson from Sheldrake Point, Ovid, N.Y. He was a shoemaker by trade and died in 1891 in Franklinville, N.Y. (Cattaraugus County) He died a pauper and is buried in Mt. Prospect Cemetery in Franklinville, in the potter's field section. I think he may have had a brother, Jerry and a brother, Christopher. Cannot prove these connections as yet. Am looking for any thing of his parents. His son, Riley, always claimed they were "Pennsylvania Dutch" but none of Peter's children were born in that area. All were born in N.Y. most in western N.Y. Thanks to anyone who can shed some light. Mark Vosburgh - posted 08-2003

She was living as a widow in 1880 in the town of Middletown, Delaware County, where she spent her entire married life. Is she a sister to Sally McCann, the daughter of Abraham and Rachel Canniff, who died in the town of Hardenburgh, Ulster Co, on Jan 8, 1897 at age 86, or to Stephen Canniff, residing Hardenburgh, in 1900, aged 80?

CANNON - My great great great grandparents were Wait and SJ Cannon who died in Moscow, PA in 1868 and 1880 respectively, and are buried in the Forest Hill Cemetery in Dunmore, PA. I know there is a Cannonsville connection, and your website lists two Waits and one SJ, but the years aren't right for ours. It also lists interested parties, but that was in 1963 or so. We thought we might visit Cannonsville, but in looking at a map, realized that we would need scuba gear to do so now, since the town is a bit damp under the reservoir. I'd like to figure out the link between my Cannons and the folks in Delaware County. Our Wait named one child, my great great grandmother, Antoinette, and one Benjamin (big surprise), and I think, one Charles, and I'm not sure of the fourth. We have 1863 -65 Civil War letters from Ben to sister Antoinette, and some other items. Can anyone help with further information? Bruce Van Deusen - posted 03-2002

I am hopeful that an article or some other news item reported on the event at the time. There are several possible variations on the spelling of the last name, including CAPPELS, CAPLES, CHAPLES, etc. The following is the death notice that appeared in either the Syracuse Herald Journal or Post-Standard: CAPLES [sic]- At Walton, N.Y., September 27, Thomas J. CAPLES [sic]. He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Loren CAPLES [sic], two sisters, and eight brothers, Mrs. John RIORDAN, Miss Mary A., Edward, Lester, Roger, Loren, Harold, Lawrence and William CAPLES.

The children and grandchildren of the twin boys are all that are left. ** The attorney that handled the adoption in 1951 was Francis R Paternoster from Walton, NY.

June 27, 1858 at 29 years 5 months (DOB = Abt 1829): Salina Ann Caswell, wife of Richard C., d May 25, 1879 52 yrs (DOB = Abt 1827). The 1855 Census of Roxbury #101 Caswell, Richard 36 yr(DOB = 1819), Salina Caswell, 28 yrs (DOB = Abt 1827), Martin 22 yrs. (?brother); Marjary 14 yrs, Ambinel 3 yrs.; Amsey J. 1 yr.
Assumptions, Comments and Questions:
1 Please help me understand how in the Cemetery records noted above that Richard died at 29 years, and yet in the Census of 1855 he was alive at 36 yrs. of age with a wife, Salina and several children. Are these two references to the same Richard Caswell or different ones? Is there any other way to confirm either set of data?
2 According to my research Salina Ann Shout married first Richard Caswell. I do not have specific dates for their marriage, or births of the Richard-Salina Caswell children. I can estimate the birth years by simple math from the 1855 census. Are you in contact with any of the Salina-Richard Caswell descendants who may be able to provide data? Any assistance with this would be appreciated.
Salina's second marriage was to James Allen from Lake Allen, Ireland. Salina and James Allen had four children. Charles (or Charlie), Minnie (or Miney), Sarah and Elizabeth. I am making the assumption that Salina was a widow who remarried. Can you confirm this?
In my family research I have confirmed that Minney Allen, daughter of Salina and James Allen, b in NY married a Fred or Frederick Wagner (my gg-grandfather on my husband's side) and lived in Scranton, PA.

CHILSON - I am interested in a John Chilson who was in Kortright as early as May 1799. He and his wife, Rebecca Butts lived in Pawling, Dutchess County NY before moving to Kortright. He appears in the 1800 census of Kortright as John Gilston. Several places away in the census appears William Butts who I am assuming was Rebecca's brother. Two other of her brothers were Major Jeremiah Butts and Captain Abraham Butts (both active in the War of 1812). I have family records that the John Chilson family moved to Ontario Canada from Kortright in 1806. He and his two sons, Moses and William Chilson were spies for the Americans in the War of 1812 and I have seen records in Canada that they were in Ontario prisons because of that. But John was acquitted after the war in 1815 and the Canadians indicated that he returned to the States. That is where I lost them. I do have a Moses Chilson who was in Indiana in 1828 and on to Illinois in 1830 who I think is the son of John Chilson. Records indicated that they may have lived in Ohio before Indiana. I was wondering if there might be deeds or other evidences in the Kortright records of their living in Kortright in 1799-1800. They were Baptists as was Major Jeremiah Butts and his family.

CHISHOLM - Kenneth Chisholm, his wife and son William emigrated in 1785 from Fasnakyle, Scotland, and settled in South Kortright, Delaware County, NY. William Chisholm was born in Scotland in 1764 and married (in NY) Frances Oswell Grant, who was born in Scotland in 1777. In 1819 William and his family left NY and moved to Port Stanley, Ontario, where most of them died under mysterious circumstances over a seven-year period. The known children of William and Frances are: Archibald (1795-1830), Mary (1797-?), Alexander (1799-1828), William (1803-1832), Ann (1804-1833), Frances (1807-1832), Robert (1812-1891), Louis (?-1833), and Kenneth (?-?). All of the children except Mary and Kenneth are known to have moved to Canada with their parents. Kenneth may have died young, and Mary is believed to have been the Mary Chisholm who married William Cowan in 1817 and remained in NY. (They were my ggg-grandparents.) There is also an Andrew Chisholm who was born in 1801 and appears in Delaware County records, but he does not appear in any records associated with this family. Ason named George has also been mentioned, but he has also never been found in any family records. Questions: Does anyone have additional information about this family, especially during the time that they were in NY? Who was Frances Oswell Grant? There were at least three different Grant families living in Delaware County at the time. Who was Andrew Chisholm? Does anyone know anything about William and Mary Cowan, and whether Mary was in fact the daughter of William Chisholm? Stanley W. Cowan - posted 03-2001

COOK - My ancestor, Elnathan Goodrich (b. 1776, Sharon, Connecticut) married the local schoolteacher in Walton, New York after his first wife (née Sawyer) died. Her name was Sally L. Cook, and I am descended from one of their sons. However, I have been unable to find anything about her origin, e.g., where she was born, who her parents are, &c. I found her 'findagrave' page, and a mention of her in an old newspaper as 'Miss Cook, the schoolteacher, who afterwards married Elnathan Goodrich' but precious little else. As a schoolteacher in that era, with a name like Sally Cook (alias Sarah), she could have come from almost anywhere in the English-speaking world. Her gravestone in Elmira, New York states that she was born 19 July 1781 and an old book on the Goodriches states that she married Elnathan Goodrich 11 February 1813 in Walton, NY. Elnathan Goodrich was a timber merchant in Walton and a member of the Masons and the Congragational church (he was born in Sharon, Connecticut). I can't find a list of Cook children that lists a Sarah or Sally born 19 July 1781, or even a Sarah or Sally Cook that didn't marry someone else. I am also intrigued by her having a middle initial and wonder if that means anything. Later, from census records and birth records for their children, and their gravestones, it appears that they moved, first to Bradford County, PA and thence to Elmira, New York. Does anyone have any information about Sally L. Cook's origins? Justin L. Ankerman - posted 02-2016

COOK - later 1700s - early 1800s. I'm looking for immigrant brothers Robert COOK, and John Cook whose wife was Dolly. These Cooks were born about 1740ish and came from Colchester, England, along with a 3rd brother Joseph who settled elsewhere after the revolution. I've read that they lobbied to have the Town(ship) named Colchester. John and Dolly and their daughter Prudence are my ancestors. Their other children were Catherine, Daniel, and Joseph. Dolly and John apparently met at Monmounth NJ during the war. Dolly had one known brother, Amasa J PARKER. I'm really thinking that daughter Prudence indicates New England roots somewhere, could even be Dolly's mother's given name or Parker grandmother's. John's known to have settled 1770s along the Beaverkill, Cooks Falls and other sites bears his name. It's where his patriot headstone is, the cemetery there. John's son Joseph served in the War of 1812-14. There was another Cook line who came into Delaware County later from the Beekman Patent area of Dutchess County NY, Nathan may be one name; his sons had "New England" names. Those would likely have had roots going back to CT, maybe RI, MA. I have no idea if those are related. It has been suggested that "my" Cook brothers did have relatives here in the new world.

CURRY - I am inquiring about John Curry, born in Ulster County NY in 1862, but moved to Delaware County between 1880-1890. He was a stone cutter by trade. John Curry married Mary Althea Travis around 1890. They had 9 children. The eldest was born in 1891 and the youngest in 1916. Children were: Terrance Edward, John Raymond, Bernard Paul, William J, Sylvester Owen, Annie Mary (or Mary), Lawrence Authur, Mary Elvira, Francis Rexford. I believe that John Curry died in 1916 just a couple of months before the birth of his youngest, Francis. He is on the 1915 New York State Census. But John Raymond's WWI draft card from 1917 indicated he supported a widowed mother and 4 siblings. I am looking for any information to confirm date and circumstances of John Curry's death in 1916 as written in query of Kris Belk below. Erin Crean - posted 11-2016
