WILBUR - I am stuck! I need early data on my husband's families. David WILBUR and his wife, Lucinda CAGWIN, died only weeks apart in Jan/Feb, 1880 in Custer, Mason County, MI. No date of birth was given for either, but it appears from their ages at death that David was born circa 1805 and Lucinda was born circa 1807. David's death certificate states that he was born in NY, the son of Job and Rebecca Wilbur. Lucinda's death certificate states that she was born in NY, the daughter of Gardner and Candis Cagwin. I believe that they are the same Gardner and Candace Cagwin who are buried in the disused Cagwin Family Cemetery in Franklin, but the dates don't quite jibe. I have traced David and Lucinda Wilbur backwards from Mason Co., MI (their deaths) to Tuscola Co., MI (1870 census); Kinderhook, Branch Co., MI (1860 census); Toledo, OH (known birthdate of grandchild, 1859); Harpersfield, Ashtabula Co., OH (Ashtabula County History) to Franklin/Harpersfield, Delaware County, NY. It appears that Job and Rebecca Wilbur had at least one more son, Cornelius D. Wilbur, who was born 16 April, 1817 in Franklin, Delaware County, NY and died 29 March, 1900 at the home of his niece, Ambrosia Wilbur Jerome, in Harpersfield, Ashtabula Co., OH. The known children of David and Lucinda are, as follows: (1) William C. (my husband's great-great grandfather), born 1828, married OH 1. Adeline Jerome, married PA 2. Emily A. HAMMOND (WATERBURY), veteran of the 29th MI VI Civil War, died 1895 Cheboygan Co., MI, buried Oak Hill Cemetery, Indian River, MI; (2) Ambrosia F., born 1935 in NY, married OH Benjamin L. Jerome, died OH 1910, buried Maple Grove Cemetery, Ashtabula Co., OH, was postmistress of Harpersfield Center, Ashtabula Co., OH for many years; (3) Alanson, born circa 1840, served in Co.

The older girls are: Alice Louise WILLIAMS, and Minnie Eliza WILLIAMS, they range about 8 to 12 yrs--I'm guessing--and of course, Lucie Agnes has her age written on the back. They are obviously sisters. I have searched the census records for 1900 hoping they would still be at home, and the 1870 doesn't have them--as far as I can tell.

All attempts to reach Scott Nichols have returned as not available. The following will help others or anyone interested.

This old inquiry about the Wilson family mentions an Abram Wilson. In your inquiry you mention Frances Wilson being a brother of Abram. Way back was James Wilson of my line who came from Dutchess county and is credited with service in the Revolutionary Army. His brother named in a fother documents was John who lived in Harpersfield not too far away. John was also in the Revolution and later lived in Harpersfield. This is according to some writings of the family. Their father was also James so I can count at least four by this name in the family. Abram was born according to these old writings in 1823 the same as you have for Abram. Just a chance encounter., Thus you were looking for father John who has a record along with James as an officer in the Army. My records are also quite scarce but will try to get this to you. Will be glad to correspond and tell you what else was found.

Abram served in the 3rd NY Cavalry Company E and was fourty two years old when he enlisted. Wonder how many of that age from Delaware county could handle riding horse most of the day, eating out and sleeping in the open. Life was not easy in those days. Note also both of the lists of Titus Lake cemetery in the town of Harpersfield have some problems. The one done by Colin Haight shows him as a Williard instead of Wilson Abram. The other has him serving in the Eighth NY Cavalry. I expect to write a note to the Del. Cty. website and have the errors corrected. Since I live in North Carolina and have heart disease, I have not been back to the county since 2000. Abram is one of 187 service men and women who are related to me and are now in a manuscript awaiting the publishing of or copies for my family. --Jeremiah Palmer

WOOD - Looking for information about the Hiram Wood family. They left the county and went to Illinois in the 1840's. Living with them at the time was a young boy , 9 years of age , named James Whitney. James married Emily Aurelia Haynes in 1857 in Illinois-- moving on to Kansas where he died in 1918. Recently, I found his descendants (cousins). Are there any descendants belonging to any Wood family who would have a connection to the above Hiram still located in the county? The Whitney family lived in Union Grove so assume that Hiram Wood would have been in the same general locality.I do not have access to Census. Appreciate any response. Aileen - posted 08-2000
