"Smith S. Ballard was born at the old homestead, February 3, 1850. He attended the district school, and then began work on his father's farm. When he was thirty-six years old, he married Miss Estelle Stewart, daughter of Augustus and Margaret [Ballard] Stewart, who live in the town of Hardenburg, Ulster County. Mr. Stewart was a well known farmer of that locality, and lived to be about sixty years old. His wife is still living at Hardenburg. They had five children-Sarah, Martin, Estelle, Ernest, and George. Mr Stewart was a son of Abijah Stewart, one of the early settlers, and was a Democrat in poltitcs. After his marriage Mr. Smith Ballard bought two hundred acres of land adjoining the homestead, and has resided on this place until recently, keeping twenty five cows, his dairy constituting his principal industry. Having leased his farm, he now has his residence elsewhere in the neighborhood. Mr. Smith S. Ballard is a Republican in politics."

BEACH-HENDERSON? - I have been trying for years to determine the correct maiden name for REBECCA, the wife of ALFRED BEACH of Walton. Alfred, born about 1809, was the youngest son of Richard Mansfield Beach and Lucinda Root. Rebecca was born about 1808 in New York according to census records. Published genealogies and many online family trees list her maiden name as Strong. Most do not list her parents or give information about possible siblings. The online trees give other family trees as the source of Rebecca’s maiden name.
Family papers bring up the name HENDERSON as another possibility for Rebecca’s maiden name, but I have not found primary sources or online sources to verify it. My great aunt had a photo of a man and woman. Two notes are on the back. One says, “Mr. L. Henderson and wife.” The other says, “Papa’s uncle Lafayette Henderson, Evanston, Ill.” Lafayette Henderson’s obituary gives Delaware County, New York as his birthplace and his death record lists James Henderson and Nancy as his parents, making James and Nancy Nethaway Henderson of Walton his likely parents. However, online family trees offer confusing information. Some say James and Nancy did have a son named Lafayette, but he was born in 1808, not 1829. Others list a daughter named Rebecca born about 1814, but no one has any other information about her. Rebecca married Alfred Beach about 1829.
My best evidence for Henderson as Rebecca’s maiden name is her youngest son’s death certificate. It gives Henderson or Anderson (difficult to read) as his mother’s maiden name. I hope someone can help me find Rebecca’s true maiden name and connect me to her parents. - Enid Macken - posted 03-2017

Patty in turn appears to be the daughter of Isaac Jackson and Jane Purvis (buried near Patty), but Jane would have been about 12-13 when Patty was born. Although Jane seems young, this may have been the case (or some dates may be wrong, since I've seen some claims that she was 16 when she came to America with her parents).

BIDWELL - Mystery - On the 1880 census for Sidney, Delaware Co. NY there is a listing for Simeon Bidwell age 81 with wife Laura age 59. Simeon's first wife was Clarisa Ayers who died Dec. 8, 1875 age 66, and is buried in St. Matthew's Church yard, Unadilla, Otsego Co. NY. Who was the "Laura" listed on the 1880 census? Some Bidwell researchers have Clarisa's middle name as Laura. Even so, Clarisa was age 66 when she died in 1875, so she could not be the same "Laura" as shown on the 1880 census. Simeon Bidwell's death certificate dated 1888 does not list a wife, so I assume Laura died before 1888. An help in solving the mystery of who Laura was, would be greatly appreciated.

BODDY - Any other Yorkshire families in Delaware County in the early 1830s? My ancestor, Galen BODDY, his wife Ann (nee RAINFORTH) with at least three children emigrated from Yorkshire, England to Delaware County in about 1832. Another child, Joseph BODDY, was born on 5 March 1834 at Delhi, according to his obituary. I don't know how long they stayed in Delaware County. The next record we can find of their existence is the 1840 US Census of Genesee County, NY where the family is enumerated at Java. (Java is now in Wyoming County; created from Genesee County in 1841). Since I live overseas I have not had the opportunity to examine the land deed records (in particular the grantor/grantee indices) at the Delaware County Courthouse. Galen's sister, Eliza BODDY and her husband, John MOORHOUSE, also emigrated from Yorkshire, England to Delaware County in 1832. It is likely the two families traveled together. John and Eliza MOORHOUSE didn't stay long; the following year they migrated to Lockport, Niagara, NY where they remained until 1842 when they moved further westward to Noble County, IN. Why did Galen BODDY and John MOORHOUSE choose Delaware County? Probably because a friend or relative was already living there who persuaded them to come. But, who could that have been? Any other Yorkshire families in Delaware County in the early 1830's? Galen BODDY was a corn miller by trade and his brother in law was a farmer. Both were of the yeoman class in England.

BROADWELL - I am seeking information about my ancestors, John G.Broadwell and his wife, Sipora Perkins. Their families were in Delaware county in the 1810 and 1820 censuses. They were located in Broome county in 1830. John¹s father, Ezra Broadwell, probably died in Delaware or Broome counties, as he was in the 1820 census of Delaware county, but is not found on the 1830 census. His widow appears to be found in 1830 in John Broadwell¹s household in Sanford, Broome county. John and Sipora¹s first child, Ezra Broadwell, was born in 1812, so it is likely that he was born in Delaware county. It is also likely that they were married in Delaware county somewhere around 1810 or 1811. I have not been able to find any record of them in the material that is readily accessible through the Delaware County website. Their families appear to have had strong ties to the Presbyterian church, so it is possible that the marriage as well as several baptisms may have been in the Presbyterian church in Delhi. Are their any church records available from that time? The children of John and Sipora and their approximate birthdates are believed to be: Ezra, 1812; Maria, 1816; Ara, 1819; Sarah, 1822; Louisa, 1828; Nancy, 1828; A.B. 1829; John W. 1831. John¹s brother, William Broadwell, was also in this area at the same time, but nothing is known about whether he married and had children. He was listed as a head of household in the 1830 Census of Delhi, Delaware County, with 4 dependents (one or two may have been his sisters) and his mother. If William was married, some of these children may have been his. Most of this family moved to Ogle County, Illinois in the fall of 1840. Donald Broadwell - posted 03-2002

BUTTS - Does anyone have information on the Butts Family. My Betsy Butts died 1827 and buried in Kortright. She married Henry Dibble III in Kortright in Nov 1796. I cannot find her anywhere. Henry came from New Haven, CT but since they married in Kortright I believe she was from New York. Jerrie Burdick Moore - posted 09-2007

I only have 5 traced so far:Luther, henry, Danile J, delos G & Wesley. Along with that I am trying to determine where Harpersferry is located. He was listed as living there during the 1830 Census. Could this be Harpersfield? Mark Bennett - posted 11-98
