SACKETT - I would like to share information on the descendants of George Augustus Sackett and his two wives. He was born in Jefferson County, June 24, 1833, to George and Eliza Peake Sackett. The family was responsible for the founding of Sacketts Harbor, NY. The family later moved to Downsville, and George returned to marry Huldah Ann Raymond from Canada in 1864. They had two children born in Downsville, Porter (b. 12/1864, m. Alice Miller) and Ida (b. 3/3/1866, m. James Wilcox, res. Shavertown). After having lived in Sackets Harbor and Downsville, George and Huldah and kids moved to Traer, IA where Huldah died in 1872. George returned to Downsville and married Sarah W. Moore in 1873 and had four children, Guy Augustus (m. Ann Eliza VanAlstyne), Frances M., Harriet M. (m. John Snyder, MANY descendants, have info), George W. (m. Mary Herr). The father of all, George Augustus, resided in Downsville until his death and is buried in Downsville. Sarah Moore, 2nd wife, is buried in Hamden. --Collin Haight (note: Collin passed away 26 December 2007)

SAGUE/SAGUEZ - I am tracing my Saguez/Sague family in central & eastern NY state. One family lived in Delaware Co in the 1840s and 1850s--before relocating in New Jersey. The Delaware County NY Genealogy and History Site provides records on the birth of Beldan I Saguez in 1847 at Walton to John and Nancy Saguez. There is no further record of him. John Sague and Maria (her name was evidently Nancy Maria) were baptized at the First Baptist Church at Deposit in 1856, and withdrew in 1860, when they show up at Shrewsbury, Monmouth, NJ. They had three more boys: William (b. 1849) Samuel (1850-1935) and Milo (1857-1910). I am most eager to learn Nancy Maria's maiden name, birthplace, and parentage. Nancy Maria was previously married, as the 1850 Census for Delhi lists Emily Case (b. 1832) and Lavalle Case (b. 1835). Son John L. Case (b. 1836) is mentioned in her obituary in 1900.

Background - I am researching my gggg grandfather, Stephen Sands. Stephen was a Loyalist during the American Revolution; a Queen's Ranger. He settled in New Brunswick, Canada after the war. According to Stephen's 1814 British military discharge forms, he was born in "Connecticut" near "New York" in 1761. I don't know the names of Stephen's parents. Stephen is not mentioned in Malcolm Sands Wilson's 1949 book "Descendants of James Sands of Block Island". I think Stephen might be the grandson mentioned in 1774 Will of Jeremiah Dodge of Cow Neck. The first name of Jeremiah's daughter, and the first name of her husband surnamed Sands, are not known. Only the name of their son, Stephen Sands, is mentioned in the will. I want to find out all I can about any Sands family of Connecticut. Thank you. Rebecca Walch - posted 04-2005

SANDS - My Great Grandfather, Daniel J Sands was probably born in the Hancock area. His wife, Laura Powers from Pierrepont, NY. I am certain of their details. My problem is with Daniel's father, Samuel, and grandfather, Benjamin. I have much conflict data, nearly all of it written in shaky script 80 years later. Here is Samuel's Story: Samuel was engaged in lumbering and timber in the vicinity of Mansfield. In the winter of 1835-6 is body was discovered in a lonely cabin where it was assumed he took refuge while traveling from Elmira, NY and a lumber camp. As he was known to have been carrying a large sum of money. Robber/murder by persons unknown was concluded. To add to the tragedy his wife died on December 14, 1835. The children, Bertha Ann, the 8 years old, Daniel, 6 and Silas, 4 were taken in by Samuel's sister Hetty Knight (Knoght?) and her husband John. Information on my supposed great grandfather, Benjamin, is difficult to decipher. Has wife's name could be Hannah, Harriet or even Catherine. He would have been corn around 1760 and dead by 1826. Here is a list of his children, all or most born in Delaware County, without an assurance of authenticity: Richard married Clara Kent; George died young; Samuel married Jane Wylie; William married Priscilla Thomas. Any help would be appreciated. Hal Sands - posted 03-2003

SHAVER - I am researching the Shaver/Shaffer families of Delaware, Schoharie, and Tioga counties. I found that Harriet, daughter of James Simonson of Roxbury married Fredrick William Shaffer, born about 1830 in Davenport, Delaware county. Son of Peter and Polly Shaffer. I believe Polly is Julie Elmi Nehr, born 1808 in Otsego. Frederick and Harriet married in 1855, a month before the census was taken. Harriet was in the 1850 census with her mother and siblings in Roxbury and then in the 1855 in Gilboa, Schoharie, along with Fredrick's family. Also, Harriet was in the 1855 census with her mother and siblings in Roxbury but that was taken earlier than the one in Gilboa. So Harriet is in the census records twice. I have not found a marriage record for them. I am wondering if they would have married in Delaware or Schoharie? If you would have the name of the church or records of this marriage? Frederick and Harriet moved from Gilboa to Waushara county Wisconsin between 1860-1870. They had three sons, William/Willard, born 1856 in N.Y., (so there may be a baptism record for him), Willis/Willie, born in Wisconsin, and Wallace born in Wisconsin. All but Willis are burried in the Oasis cemetery in Waushara county Wisconsin. Any information would be appreciated. Jennifer - posted 11-2014

Knew he has 5 daughters and Aric is his only son. Shortly after Aric was born we moved to Mississippi and James left when Aric was 6 weeks old. Never met his mother or a cousin named Howard Schaefer (on his mothers side that took carry of all her personal business). See from .... Edna S. Selleck, 1911-1998 [obit], Lester had 2 sisters. See James mother was not listed, take it they did not speak after Lester died. Read online from (Lester's obit) also on this site searched old newspapers.

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."
