MALLORY - I am seeking any and all information on Charles Mallory. My 2nd great grandfather was Charles Mallory. He was born somewhere in New York state between 1835 and 1845. At some point around 1868-1869 he married to Harriette Belle Silloway. She was born 26 Nov 1847 at China (now Arcade), Wyoming Co., N.Y. the daughter of William and Grace Prudence (Davis) Silloway. In 1870, I can locate Charles Mallory, his wife Harriette and their son, Carl Clayton Mallory bn. 31 May 1870 in Missouri, residing at Jasper Twp., Jasper Co., Mo. listed as post office Carthage, Mo. Charles has given his occupation as carpenter and painter. On 13 Nov 1876, Harriette Belle Mallory marries second at Eaton Rapids, Eaton Co., Mi. to Albert C. Darling. In the History of Eaton Co., a brief biography of Albert states that the husband of his second wife, Belle was Charles Mallory and that he had died in Missouri. Two sisters and a brother of Belle were already living in Michigan. No death record can be found for Charles at Jasper Co. Missouri as records were not kept there that early. After scouring the census records between 1850 and 1880 for the state of NY and coming up with many Charles Mallorys that fit the age criteria for my Charles; I can eliminate most because they either died before 1870 or are still in the various town in 1880 or were married to someone else in 1870. There is a Charles W. Mallory, bn 1843 in Hamden, Delaware Co., the son of William and Frances Mallory. In 1850, this father gives his occupation as a carpenter. In 1860, he is now a farmer and Charles is listed as a student. In 1870, Charles is gone. I have perused the Delaware Co. site and see no record of Charles showing up after 1860. Is it possible that this is my Charles? The distance between Delaware and Wyoning Counties seems to be a great ways and I have no explaination as to how these two young people would have met; but so far, this Charles seems to be my best bet. Any help appreciated. Are there cemetery records available for Hamden? Could William have left a will? Cindy Leutz - posted 06-2006

MCCUMBER - I have spent the last year trying to find the location of where my great grandfather died and is buried. His family came from Delaware Co., which is where many lived and died. He, however, moved to Elmira, Chemung Co., NY in the early part of the century. His name was Lorin William McCumber, son of John Y. and Emma (Van Deusen) McCumber. He was divorced and living with his son in Elmira by the 1920 and 1930 census. However, the city directory indicates that both he and his son, my grandfather Leon, left the area prior to the printing of the 1930 city directory. There is no record of them at all. In the 1939 city directory, however, my grandfather reappears WITHOUT my great grandfather, which leads me to believe he died before that. Requests to Chemung Co. Vital Records, as well as all cemeteries in Chemung Co., have revealed no record of my great grandfather as having died there. I suspect that he and my grandfather may have returned to the Delaware Co. area after 1929, until my great grandfather died, and then my grandfather returned to Elmira. The areas where Lorin's family lived are: Andes, Margaretville, and Bovina. He definitely died before the mid-40's, as his sister's (Cora) obituary (in Kansas) did not list him among her surviving siblings. Any help in finding information on Lorin W.

He lists my ggggrandfather, William Seacord, as marrying for the second time to Anna McCune, who was born in Ireland. However, I recently received information written in 1890 by William's grandson, Edward More Seacord, that lists Edward's paternal grandmother as Anna Nichols and that she was born in Bedford, NY. I am wondering if Anna was born to Samuel and Mary Orr McCune and was married to a Nichols before marrying William Seacord? But where does Bedford, NY fit in? Anna and William had a son, my gggrandfather, James McCune Seacord. In Mr. Hoy's work, there is listed James McCune, son of Samuel and Mary, who married Phoebe Ann Nichols. Another thought is that Anna was married to Phoebe's brother, but nothing is listed in Mr. Hoy's work on Bovina to prove this. Any ideas to assist with this twisted puzzle piece would be greatly welcomed. Nancy Frost - posted 12-2003

METCALF - I'm looking for any and all baptism/death/marriage records in any and all Delaware County churches for the family of George Metcalf. He may have been married three times - Anna Eliza Wells, Sarah Wells, and Julia Faulkner. I'm specifically looking for the three marriages and any baptisms of their children - Joel C., Anna Eliza, Levi, Almond, etc.
Joel's obituary in the Kingston Daily Freeman states that he died November 28, 1915 in Franklin and was the son of George and Eliza Wells Metcalf. Horace Metcalf's death certificate shows that he was the son of George Metcalf and Anna E. Wells. He was born February 28, 1839 in Delaware County, NY, and I specifically believe in Masonville. The death certificate for Levi Metcalf shows him as the son of George Metcalf and Sarah Wells. There is an Almond G. Metcalf buried in Ouelout Valley Cemetery with dates 1833 - 1855. The Bloomville Mirror states his death as March 6, 1855.
George is documented as having seat rents in Masonville Presbyterian in 1825 and 1826. He is in Masonville in the 1830 census and in Davenport in the 1840 census. I am hoping to be able to help me track down a Wells family with both Sarah and Anna E. as the pattern has been with some in that time frame to marry a sister or other female close relation when there where children to raise. I still firmly believe that the Analiza buried in Davenport Cemetery is the Anna E. on Horace's death certificate. Additionally, I am given to believe, as of today's new information, that Sarah was George's first wife and Anna Eliza the second. I am at a loss as how to find any more information and could use some local assistance from church records. Cheryl Harding - posted 08-2021

Frederick and one of his brothers joined a few of the Shavers on their journey up the Delaware River eventually they came across some land they thought would make a good homestead. They settled down and built one house for the Shavers and Millers could live in durning the up and coming winter. The Millers were experienced trappers and good at it. After getting some animal skins tougher Frederick and one of the Shaver men ventured into town to sell their goods to get food and items they needed. They learned a few things from the local Indians such as what berries are good to eat and what trees make the best for shelter. I don't have much information on Frederick or his brothers but this is what I have:
Frederick's 2 brothers were Pieter married Margareet Chesiham, christened Hendrik in Colchester 1764 and Samuel married Rebecca Schafer they also christened their son Schephert in Colchester 1796.

MOTT - Been to the Riverview Cemetery in Hancock several times locating family graves. Still unable to find one last grave for Mary A Mott. I have been told by several family members that her gravesite is on top of the hill near the north entrance but after scowering the hillside we still cannot find it. I wanted to contact the cemetery to see if they had a location index available but I am unable to find a phone number or a website for them. Does anyone know where I can get an index?

MULLINEX- Looking for information on Lucy Mullinex born 1872 or 1875 or to find out if Louisa Mulnix and Lucy Mulnix are the same person.

By George Foulds she had a Charles in 1893 and Herbert Uriah Foulds born in 1896. Herbert Uriah is my father but he went by the Mulnix/Mullinex name since 1900 until for a brief period as a Foulds when he married an AnnnaBella McGraw.

MULLINEX/MULNIX - I am searching for any information on my gr-gr-grandparents who are Samuel and Debbie Van Dusen Mullinex. They lived near Andes, Delaware County, NY. They married there in 1840 and were on the census records until 1870. They had 12 children all born near Andes and Pleasant Valley areas. They moved to Ogle County, Illinois and then on to Shellsburg, Benton County, Iowa. I'm looking for siblings of Samuel and Debbie Mullinex as well as parents of both. Need info on Charles Mullinex Sr. and Charles Mullinex Jr. as they might be father and brother. They are buried in New Shavertown Cemetery. Appreciate any help. Marilyn Schoop - posted 08-99

MULLINEX - I am looking for information on the Mullinex family that lived in Andres in 1860 according to census records. Jarvis Mullinex age 45 is a farmer. According to family his wife is Louise and she died in 1859 during child birth. Jarvis's children are Sarah (19), Charles (16), Maria (14), Thomas (9), Marcus (7), George (3), Mary (3), Louisa (1). An Abigail Mullinex is also living with him and she is age 65. According to Pepacton Reservoir - Cemetery Removal Records, Thomas married a Phebe C. MILLER (b) 1850. According to the party of interest, Maggie Coulter, Thamas and Phebe was her mother and father. Also found in this document is Louise Mullinex (d) 1859 (Aunt) which would establish her as Jarvis's wife and agree with what I have heard that she did die in 1859 during child birth. Also listed are the Grandparents being Charles Sr., and Abigail Gregory Mullinex. Now if Thomas is Jarvis's Brother, this would mean the Charles Sr. and Abigail are Jarvis parents also. Since in 1860 an Abigail was living with Jarvis, I believe that Abigail was living with Jarvis to help him out with the children. Mark A. Conley - posted 04-99

MULNIX - I am searching for information about my Gr-Great Grandfather Andrew Jackson Mulnix and his wife Olive Ruth Miner who moved from New York to Michigan. He was born January 24, 1833 in Delaware, New York died March 28, 1900 in Sidney, Michigan. Olive Ruth Miner was born in Wilna, Jefferson, New York on 9-24-1842. They married on 4-30-1856. I can't find any additional information of his ancestry. Any info to validate either my Gr-Great Grandfather or Mother's genealogy would be very helpful. I think this maybe the time when the surname spelling changed to the Mulnix from another derived spelling, but I can't seem to find what it was before Mulnix. Hopefully, you can be of some help.
