TEED - I was just in Delaware County...convinced my husband to visit the cemeteries in Trout Creek where Teed relatives (hoped for relatives) are buried...It was lovely. BUT I am wondering about some information passed to me while I was there. I am looking for parents of Catherine Teed....she reportedly was born in 1778..most of the history accounts start somewhat later than that. Who would have been in the area at the time? Would there be any way of finding any kind of record for someone born at that time? There is a house still standing that was a Teed house built in 1805. That is not that much later. Is there any way of finding if there were any churches in the area? Do you have any advice for how to locate someone at that time? There is a gravestone for a Mary Teed who could possibly have been her mother..it's the right age to have been. Are there any records for the cemeteries there? Kathy Wright - posted 07-2000

There are no Teeds in the 1800 Census although there are two Teads. Is there any listing of what churches were around at that time?

Since records for Monroe County were destroyed three times by fire we hoped that, since Lauren and Andrew were born in Delaware County some of the other children... possibly as much as nine... may be recorded in some way there.

May 26, 1952 and buried in Halcottsville, NY cemetery. George married Hattie Scudder. George had two siblings Bert and Mamie. George's parents were William Townsend and Sarah Matheus. William may have been born around 1855. He married Sarah either in Roxbury, NY or later moved there in an area called Meeker Hollow. He was the village tax collector. He mysteriously disappeared, one day. on one of his tax collection ones. Only his wagon and house was found. William was believed to be a halfbreed and some think local Indians did him in because he married a full blooded Indian, yet others just think he was hated because he was collecting taxes. His wife Sarah was said to be a full blooded Indian and her tiny obit only said she was born on a reservation. She was supposed to have lived in our near Arena, NY. Possibly she was from the Indian Village in Shavertown, NY. Bernice has not data of her death, but believes it was in 1931 since she was 5 when she died. Sarah is buried in the Halcottsville cemetery near the Townsends, but has no stone. George Townsend and his family moved to the far end Bragg Hollow and lived in their farm homestead. It was here that Bernice was born and she remembers her grandmother, but said she did not talk much since she was afraid of others being ashamed of her and her Indian heritage. The Townsend burials are known, but none found for Sarah. Record of William's birth or marriage have not been found. There is on knowledge of William's parents either. Since Sarah is said to be an Indian the name Matheus is probably an American given name, possibly after a family that adopted her or maybe a family that took her whole family on their homestead as tenant farm hands. So far no name like this has been found in any Delaware records and it might be Mathews, Bernice says the spelling was more like Matheus. Bernice would like to more about Sarah's Indian background. She thinks she might be Mohawk, but does not know for sure. Without knowing more about Sarah, her parents and her early life she does not have much chance of ever knowing. John H.

TREADWELL - I am the grand daughter of Andrew H. Treadwell, Jr. My mother is Wilma Treadwell Vanadia. She is the oldest daughter of Andrew Jr. and his wife Alberta VanGordon Treadwell. Her siblings, in order of birth, are Deanna, Barbara (deceased), and Robert (deceased). When her father was killed in a car accident, she and her sister Deanna went to live with Andrew Sr. and Bessie Treadwell (her grand parents) at Green Hill Farm in what was then West Windsor/ Binghamton. I spent my childhood summers at the farm, and visited up until my twenties in the 1970's. The farm was sold then. I would like to know if anyone has information on what became of the property and the name of the road that leads to it. The entrance to the dirt road up to the farm was off a side road that ran parallel to Route 17 right near Titus's Red and White - a gas station and grocery/convenience store.

TREADWELL - I have often gone through or past Treadwell while visiting friends in that part of the state and it never dawned on me that Treadwell ancestors might have had a hand in putting it on the map! I have a lot of already-published information on the Treadwell family, back to the Ipswich, MA origins and even beyond, but can't find anything in it that could tell me who might have settled the town in Delaware County.

I've been fortunate to connect my g-grandfather, George L. Turk to the correct Turk family. Now I'm hoping to connect my g-grandmother, Rose E. Dutcher Turk with the correct James Dutcher family. May B. Turk is my grandmother b. 1900. She married Percy S. Bergman and they lived in Binghamton where they raised their 3 children, Lillian, Edan and Leon. May died in 1946 from cancer and is buried in the Chenango Valley Cemetery. My grandfather, Percy S. Bergman is the son of Richard Kimball Bergman and Myrtle May Blossom. Percy was born in Susquehanna County, PA on 10/21/1903 and died Nov. 1963 in Binghamton. I just recently found out that Myrtle's maiden name was Blossom. I don't know where she was born, the 1910 census for Richard K. Bergman in PA show's that Myrtle was born in PA. Myrtle May Blossom died at age 64 on July 23, 1943 in Binghamton and is buried in the Chenango Valley Cemetery next to her husband, Richard Kimball Bergman who was born abt. 1874 in New York and died at age 77 on Dec. 8, 1951 and is buried in the Chenango Valley Cemetery. I'm hoping the information I've posted here will ring some bells, especially for the family of Myrtle May Blossom Bergman and Rose E. Dutcher Turk. Linda - posted 10-2001

TURK - While seeking a different ancestor, the name George H. TURK, b. 1834 showed up at the "Military men still in the service in 1865" page! He was a private in the 1st NYE. I have tracked George through five counties and am trying to find out when and where he and Jane Marie Cole b. 1844 got married. I believe it was in 1861 or so, based on children, but cannot find records. He was born in Delaware County and, I believe, moved to Greene County with his family around 1852. Any information or leads would be greatly appreciated! Ray Fuller - posted 03-99

TURNER - I am having great difficulties in locating my ancestors from Delaware County 1830-1850. My g-g-grandfather Alexander or Archibald Turner (Scotland), his wife Mary (England), and children emigrated from Scotland to Delhi area around 1828. They probably lived in the country farming. Robert born [1828], George M born [1833], and Archibald born (1831) Turner were born in Delaware County, but I need to verify the dates. I have a Jacquard coverlet embroidered Delhi 1836 that was inherited. I can find no record of any Turners in the area at that time. Alexander Turner must have died because his children and wife moved to Buffalo in 1850 and I can find them in the 1850 census there. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The son Archibald Turner was President of Franklin Savings Bank, New York City 1891 (NY Times citation) They were members of the social club New York 400 whose roster in 1885 I would love to find.

TURNER - My grandfather was born in Delhi, NY in 1865 and his parents and siblings lived there from sometime after 1812 to 1875. I looked in your very census reports online, but could not find any reference to them. My grandfather's name was Frederick Chester Turner; his father was George Malcolm Turner married to Elizabeth Chester in 1858.I need evidence of their residence, birth, deaths. The Alexander Turners emigrated from Dumbarton Castle Scotland just after 1812 and had many children born in Delhi. They were Archibald, Robert, James, George, etc. to name a few. Any help would be greatly appreciated. A. Duncan - posted 10-99

TURNER - I'm looking for information on Elisha TURNER and his family and friends. He was probably born between 1775 and 1780. After Elisha's parents died, he was raised by a man named John BOICE or BICE. The earliest record I've found of him is in the Census of 1800. At that time, Elisha and his family were living in Colchester, Delaware county, NY, near his brother-in-law Zenas COVEL and father-in-law James Covel. Elisha and Patience Turner's two children were born in Colchester: John Boice (or Bice) Turner b. 14 Jan 1799 and James Covel Turner b. 22 Mar 1800. Elisha took a raft of lumber down the Delaware River to Philadelphia and never returned. A search party concluded that he had been murdered for the money he was carrying. The Letter of Administration of his estate is dated June 1801. His friends and business associates included "General" David PHELPS, James WRIGHT, Jeremiah GUNONG, and William HOLLIDAY. Elisha's widow Patience married Arnold HUNTER (probably the son of Daniel Hunter of Colchester) and moved to Tioga county, PA, with her younger son James. Her older son John was adopted by Arnold's sister Elizabeth and her husband David POWERS. Jim Turner - posted 02-2007

TUTTLE - In 2005 a Massachusetts-born Moses Hubbard Tuttle and some of his family became research subjects, off and on, and a recent Google led me to this website, via the posting concerning the Delaware Literary Institute graduates. A Moses H. Tuttle is included in the class of 1860. I wonder if there are Tuttle researchers who are interested in the life and times of the same one who caught my fancy last year. HE came to Mississippi in the 1860s and was an officer during the Civil War, leading Negro Troops. He showed up in the Census of 1860 as 21 and a student ... without looking at old notes ... his father was named Leonard, and so was a brother; both Moses or Mose, as he was often called, and Leonard Jr. were in Mississippi after the Civil War and in 1870 were both in Carrollton, Miss. A house on the southern approach to the town square has just been rehabilitated is being used as a coffee house ... it's always been known as "The Tuttle House". It's believed Moses lived in it and it's known that Leonard Jr owned it later. Both served as Carroll county, Miss., Reconstruction Era sheriffs. P. S., I believe Moses' father was born in New York state. Susie James - posted 05-2006

TUTTLE - The History of Roxbury says Grant FOLLETT was the last of the Follett family to live in Roxbury. I see from the Delaware web page that his daughter Ada Follett, born 1898, married Paul Tuttle in 1927. Minnie Baggs was her mother, Grant Follett her father. I am wondering if anyone knows of any member of this Tuttle family is still living in the area that would possibly know more about their Follett background. Lynda & B.J. Ozinga - posted 04-2001

I tried to respond to the email address in the previous post, but it is no longer valid. I live in the Jacob Twaddell house which is on the border of New Castle County, DE and Delaware County, PA.

TWADDELL - I have been able to find quiet a bit of information on the Twaddell family who lived in Hancock. There is a person, named Jacob Carl Twaddell who I run into a blank wall. This person left Hancock in 1851 from New York to the Port of Galveston, Texas. He then took an oxcart from there to Waco, Texas. He later joined the Texas Rangers and then fought for the South in the war between the states. (We southerners are not supposed to say "Civil War") I know that the original Teaddells in Delaware County were a William and a Daniel who came from Coleraine, Ireland. I have exhausted my reasources from this point. Any ideas? By the way, I am doing this for a sister-in-law who lives in Austin, Texas. Bob Myers - posted 11-99
