HINMAN - Searching for the parents of my g-grandfather Levi HINMAN who was born in Greene Co 1836 but known to have last lived, just before the turn of the century, in Downsville, possibly in Wilson Hollow. Family lore has it that the parents died very young and the children were "farmed-out" to friends and relatives but kept the Hinman name. No confirmation of this exists. Levi Hinman appears in the 1850 census (Delaware Co) as living in the household of Washington Ives. Efforts to locate some Ives family not productive. I know that there were three children between 1831 and 1843: William 1831, Levi 1836 and Ellen 1843. There may be three more Alonzo, Russell and Adele but we are not certain--these latter are mentioned in a Bible own by Lizzie Alexander with no information. The words "Nathan and Mary H-1810" also appear which, if this were birthdate and they were twins, (we know there was a brother and sister by those names, children of Nathan Hinman) would make Nathan 21 yr in 1831--which is plausable. One source names Nathan Mitchell Hinman and Mary Fullington as parents of Levi, etc but we think this is pure conjecture--even that source cannot prove it. So here we are. My line to Sgt Edward Hinman the immigrant 1659 would be complete if we could find the missing Hinman. Maxine C. Bartz - posted 12-97

HOWARD - Seeking any information on James Howard, the son of John Howard, Sr. and Margaret Hurst. It is believed that he was born in England 11 April 1767. They first settled in Albany County. J.H. French's 1861 "Gazeteer of New York", p. 261 and W.W. Munsell's 1880 History of Delaware County, p. 196, indicates that James Howard was one of the early settlers of Hamden, Delaware County. The second wife of James Howard, was Dolly (Dorothy?) Howland, believed to be the daughter of Gershom Howland and Elizabeth Parker, who arrived about 1796 in the area. James and Dolly's children were: Mary born 1798, Amanda born 1800, Joshua. No record of James has been located in 1790 Census but the 1800 Federal Census does list two James Howard families in Delaware County. The one which includes three males with one under 10 years does not fit the profile, while the second James Howard could. No record of this family has been located in the 1810 Federal Census.

I have written documentation that his father was from NY and his mother was from Scotland--don't know what year. After becoming pregnant with John, the mother wanted to go back to Scotland to give birth, which is what happened. The family returned to America shortly after John's birth and settled in Delaware County again. John was born sometime between 1823 and 1832 - varies from account to account, and I might also state he was a hard core alcoholic who died in 1901 from drinking wood alcohol at Big Sur. When died, newspaper article lists him as born in 1824 Foreign Born Voters of 1872 lists him as born in 1832. His marriage information states he is born in 1832.

HULL - My 3rd great grandfather was Jeremiah Kittle Jr. born in Middletown township in 1824. He died in Delaware County 21 June 1900. His first wife was Julia Ann. The only clue to her maiden name is in the 1925 Iowa census. Their oldest daughter Mary said her name was Hull. She died in Ogle County Illinois 17 Sept 1861. Jeremiah then returned to Delaware County. We do not know who the parents of Julia Ann are. In the 1850 census she is in Middletown Twp. with Jeremiah. If her maiden name was Hull then a possibility might be her father was Elijah. The 1850 census says she was born in 1822. The 1860 Ogle county census says 1819 or 1820. Any information appreciated.

HYZER - Need help and information on Benjamin Jones and Sarah Jane (Jennie) Hyzer. They are my great grandparents. Trying to find if they were by chance married in Delaware County. If so, it most likely would have been between 1878-1883. They had 6 children, with one dying between the ages of 14-16 years old in Binghamton, I don't know her date of birth or where she was born, the rest born between 1883-1898, 4 in New York, my grandfather in Equinunk, Pa. in 1898. Sarah Jane died in 1931, in Binghamton, and was listed as widowed at that time. My grandfather and grandmother were married July 2nd, 1924 in Cooks Falls, Town of Colchester and listed Benjamin as his father. Does this mean that he was alive at that time? Almost all the information from the rest of the family that I have found, they were born in or around Colchester, (Cooks Falls), Horton, Peakville or such in Delaware county. I have no information at all on Benjamin, parents, siblings, date of birth, death, nothing. Terry Jones - posted 01-2002
