This information was contibuted by Jason Livermore, the owner of the original receipt.

Many different Livermore families settled in or passed through Tioga County and Broome County. This project is an attempt to list these families, and where possible show how they were related to each other and to John Livermore, the original Livermore immigrant to the New World who came to Massachusetts in 1634. The material consists of excerpts from "The Livermore Family of America" by W. E. Thwing, 1902. It also includes information found in other miscellaneous sources.

Livermores in Tioga and Broome Counties
By: Jason Livermore

Numbers follow those used in The Livermore Family of America by Walter E. Thwing, 1902. Notes generally follow Thwing's convention of assuming that towns are in Massachusetts unless otherwise indicated.

50. Hannah (Allen) Livermore, wife of Moses5 Livermore (Josiah4, Joseph3, John2, John1) Hannah survived Moses and moved with her son Moses (102, see below) to Lisle, N.Y. in 1817, where she died.

75. Daniel5 Livermore (David4, Daniel3, Samuel2, John1) The first white men to visit Owego, N.Y., of whom we have any account, were a portion of Gen. Sullivan's army, in 1779. On Aug. 17, in that year, Capt. Daniel Livermore of the 3d N.H. regiment of Gen. Poor's brigade, with a detachment of 900 men from Gen. Sullivan's army, marched up the Susquehanna River from Tioga Point (Athens, Pa.), to meet Gen. Clinton's expedition of 1500 men, which was coming down from Otsego Lake. At Owego, Capt. Livermore destroyed the Indian village which was on the river's bank, at and below William Street, and which consisted of about twenty wigwams, the natives having fled on the approach of the troops. Two days afterward they effected a union with Clinton's army at Charamuk (Choconut, about one and one-half miles above Union), and the entire body then marched to Owego, arriving Aug. 19, and remaining encamped there two days on account of rainy weather. This was the expedition sent to chastise the British, Indians, and Tories, for the horrible massacre and barbarous atrocities committed at Wyoming and Cherry Valley. (Thwing, 1902)

102. Moses6 Livermore (Moses5, Josiah4, Joseph3, John2, John1) was born April 2, 1758, in Spencer; died March 25, 1830, in Lisle, N.Y.; married Nov. 22, 1781, in Spencer, Mary Wilson, born there June 19, 1762; died March 8, 1858, in Lisle. He and his family (except his sons Warner and Charles) removed to Caldwell settlement, town of Lisle, in 1817, making the journey, by the aid of four teams, in twelve days. Children were born in Spencer [Mass.] (Thwing, 1902)

106. Phineas6 Livermore (Abijah5, Josiah4, Joseph3, John2, John1) was born March 28, 1775, in Spencer;
married Jan. 4, 1798, Polly Lackey, born there Jan 2, 1778. Phineas is listed
in various census records for Tioga County. He and Polly are buried in Hope Cemetery in Newark Valley.

        Children were born in Spencer [Mass.] (Thwing, 1902)
                ii. Rufus, b. Nov. 29, 1800.
	            From sources other than Thwing: Rufus moved to Tioga County and is 
                 mentioned in local records. He had children born in Tioga County. 
                 In the 1850's he moved his family to Eau Claire County, Wisconsin. 
                 First wife was Mary Williams;
	            second wife was Lucinda Kenyon.
