LETTER G

GADDIS - Searching for anyone with knowledge of Adam GADDIS and family in Delaware County. I believe I have found him as Adam GEDDIS in the Orange County census in New Windsor for 1800 (filed 2 May 1801), but by early 1800's he is in Delaware County. He supposedly came from Monaghan, Ireland. It has been stated that he came with his wife, Catherine (nee McKEE)(had originally thought to have been a Nancy NN), a son, John (b. 1798 in Monaghan) and a daughter. Also, with two brothers (names unknown) and a sister, Kate. The twelve children of Adam and Catherine married into the FOX, LOUDEN, LAMB, McCOY, IMBLER, DIBBLE, HARPER, BUTTS, LESLIE, CARLEY, SMITH (John and William), DAVIDSON families. The families settled into Davenport, Kortright, Meredith and Harpersfield. In 1836 Adam and Catherine with some of the younger children moved to Morgan County, IL. Patty Gaddis - posted 04-2004

GATES - I am looking for information on Joseph GATES. Joseph is listed in the Franklin (Delaware County) 1820 and 1830 NY census. Franklin History states that a Joseph GATES was town clerk in 1828-1829 and owned a store/post office? in 1829-1831. He then moved to Albany. My Question(s) is there any proof that Joseph was born in abt 1790 and his son, Joseph D. GATES was born in abt 1828?

My Question(s) is there any relation to Joseph GATES or the William GATES family? Charlie Gates - posted 02-2002

GATES - I am looking for information on Herman GATES. Herman is a recurring family name down to my father. Herman was the "collector" for the Franklin School in 1818. The article states he was killed by a falling tree. I understand that Herman Gates was the son of William GATES, an early settler in Delaware County. My Question(s) is/are there any relation to Joseph GATES, did Herman leave any survivors,and was he the Herman GATES in Van Renssalaer's Regiment during the War of 1812?

Mary abt. 1843, Thomas abt 1845, John abt 1848. They were Epsicoplians. As there are two Gauleys listed on the 1850 census for Delaware County I have reason to believe they might be related. Joseph left New York for Rock Island County, Illinois before 1850 as he and family are on the Illinois 1850 census. Mary Louise Beem - posted 05-2004

GAVETT - Mary Ann (Hall) - I am WORKING on my wife's genealogy in the town of Middletown.

GENUNG - I'm currently researching the GENUNG-HAWKS family of Sidney, NY and Unadilla, NY. I have the Hawks background going well and back several generations. I am currently stuck on Frank Genung who married Helen Hawks and had several children. Helen Hawks Genung died before 1900 as Frank is listed with a few children in the 1900 census in Sidney. He is listed as Frank B. Genung age 40 widower and father of Arthur 18, Blanch 11, Willie 7 in 1900 census. He is also the father of Floyd Emory Genung b. 1884 who is in another county in 1900 and George E. b. ca 1878. I have him married to Helen Hawks and living with his in-laws in Unadilla in 1880 census. I don't have him with parents before that although he was born in NY State. I do not know when he died nor where he was buried. I believe his wife Helen must have died after the 1880 census and before the 1900 census. In 1880 he is living with his Hawk in-laws and he and Helen have a child George E. b. ca 1878. Who are his parents? He indicates that his father (Genung) was b. Connecticut and his mother was b. NY.

GOODRICH - 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

GREENE - Re: Adelbert Greene (1855-1922) - I am seeking clarification of the circumstances surrounding the death in 1922 of Adelbert Greene. Entries in the Coroner's Reports from the Delaware County Board of Supervisors' books, under Adelbert Greene and Adelbert Green, on this website, indicate a finding of suicide "exact means unknown". Also, there seems to be some controversy surrounding the assumption of coroner's authority as indicated in the Adelbert Green entry. My information, passed down from generation to generation, was that Adelbert Greene had been hunting when he was bitten by a rattlesnake. He had made a tourniquet by ripping his shirt into strips which he had tied together. Also, the remains of the snake which he had killed with his rifle, had been found nearby. It was surmised that Adelbert had subsequently suffered a heart attack in the course of his ordeal, which attack had been the cause of his death. Does anyone have any further information about Adelbert's death? Stephen C. Greene - posted 06-2003

John B. and Lydia seem to be long-time residents of Delware County, and a listing for a "James" in the 1850 census with them would be the right age for "Junius." Any scraps would be a help!
