EAGAN - I have a gr-gr grandmother that I think had three siblings that I would like to contact descendants of. Her name was Mary Bridget Eagan, she was born in Delaware County. Her fathers name was Patrick and I'm guessing her mother was either Mary or Bridget . Her parents came on famine ships . She married in Ireland and went back to Delaware and had her first child Maria in 1889. She had her second ( my great grandmother) in 1892 in Ireland. Found in the 1870 US Census Town of Hancock: Patrick Eagan 52, Ann Eagan 40, John 16, Mary 14, Thomas 12, James 10, Henry 8, Frank 5, Ann 2. Found in the 1880 US Census Town of Hancock: Patrick Eagan b. 1820 Widower age 60, Henry 17, Frank 15, Annie 12, Willie 10.

He was editor of the Catskill Mountain News from 1919 to 1922 and lived in Margaretville in the Liddle House in the West End (Is this house still standing?) with his 2nd wife Pearle Lewis and son Frank L. A daughter Helen was born in 1921. He left Margaretville due to illness, moved back to the LeRoy area where the Lewises lived and died in Rochester in 1924. According to family legend and his obituary, Charles was a newpaper man in San Francisco at the turn of the century. His first wife and children died in the fire that followed the 1906 earthquake, a loss from which he never fully recovered. Charles must have moved to New York State because he was also employed at the Gazette News in LeRoy, NY (1915 - ), the Daily Canandaigua Messenger and was an editor at the Syracuse Post-Standard. Any info on Charles P Elam would be greatly appreciated. Sandy - posted 09-2004

Elnora and Bishop had a daughter Rebecca (Bolton) whose son had the middle name "Nelson." Was he named for Nelson Elderkin?

Here is the information I have - Daniel Eldredge (or could have been spelled Eldridge) was born on December 19, 1805 in Saratoga County, NY and died June 30, 1886. I found NY State Census from 1840, 1850, 1860 that showed and his wife Dolly Bunn Eldredge (died January 24, 1876 in Maryland, Otsego, NY) and kids lived in Maryland, Otsego, NY then in the 1870, 1875 and 1880 NY State Census lived in Davenport, Delaware County, NY. So I am not sure where he or Dolly Bunn Eldredge died and where they are buried. I am looking for his death notice or certificate so I can verify where either of them died and also see if I can learn the name of Daniel’s parents. Also, if he left a will or any information on the property he owned since his is listed as a Farmer as his occupation. What I am missing is who was his father and mother.
