Rearching John McGILIVAY, b. abt 1710, Isle of Islay (one place says JURA) his wife, Catherine McDONALD, Islay (or JURA)

1. Bridget,
2. Donald
3. Hugh
4. Mary
(Maybe more after arriving in USA)

On same ship was Effie McGILIVERY & Mary McGILIVARY, Effie went to N.Y. City, Mary Also in Washington County was????????????

Archibald & Susan McGILIVERY- Deed 1801 Bk 1, pg 495
Donald McGILIVERY, Deed 1801 Bk 1 Pg 496
Daniel McGILIVERY b. 1776 Argyle, Spouse, Mary b. 1780

Daniel McGILIVERY b.Aug 1 1802, Argyle, spouse, Catherine LANCASTER, b. Jan 31, 1803 at New Cornwall, Orange Co. N.Y.

The following is only conjecture on my part. This is where I need help.

Donald McGILLVRA"s "WILL", (Son of John McGILIVERY) recorded Nov. 5, 1812, leaves to his son's Archibald & Daniel ????????????????

The son Archibald had a son Hugh, born 1800, Washinton Co., as per 1865 census, Tompkins Co., Town of Caroline, NY. (also a son George of Tompkins Co. and Archibald of St. Lawrence Co., NY.

Archibald sold property in Washington Co., Town of Argyle in 1806(Liber B, Page 339 and he next appears in 1810 census of Tioga Co., Town of Spencer, NY, which became Tompkins Co., Town of Caroline on Feb. 22, 1811.

I find no mention of these McGILLVRA's until 1840 census of Tompkins Co. Town of Caroline. Both Hugh and George appear at same location as in 1810.

Ouestion.1 Archibald never reappears. Were they missed by census taker in 1820-30 or did Archibald die and wife remarry?

I am trying to establish that this Archibald is the son of Donald and the father of Hugh. Hugh is my 3GGrandfather. Hugh had brother, George, of Tompkins Co.

Hugh marries Elizabeth CHAMBERS, daughter of Abraham & Mary Jeanette CHAMBERS.

Hugh died March 21.1872, at home of son, Isaac, Town of Candor, Tioga Co. Buried ?? Hugh resided in Caroline his entire life.

4. Archibald, died in the Civil War, 1862.
Please any information appreciated.

I do not know if Candor Town Records or Library records contain birth information. If they do I would appreciate if someone can look this up for me.

According to WWI Draft Registration:

George WILSON born in Candor January 24, 1895

Clarence WILSON born in Candor February 8, 1897

I am looking for their parent's name.

Their sister was Edith WILSON (my paternal grandmother) other siblings included Margaret, Mabel, Minnie, Kathlyn, Dorothy, Etta and Jeanette.

Some of these others may have also been born in Candor. I believe my grandmother was born in Elmira, but I don't know for sure.

I do not know the parent's name. I have William or Eugene WILSON and I have Louella or Sophia CONKLIN.

If you find any info I would be forever grateful. Thank you so much.

I have been researching my HANAFIN family roots for sometime now and so far haven't been able to find anything on my grandfather William HANAFIN.

He was the third born of seven sons of John and Mary (MADDIN) HANAFIN of Bradford Co.PA. John and Mary came to Bradford Co. from Ireland about 1845 and settled in Windham Twp.

William married Lillie Bell HINEY(?) of Rome Twp. Lille died when my mother was born in 1888. William was living in Owego,NY in the 1930's , I remember visiting him there as a child. He had married again, I believe his wife's first name was Margaret.

I think he was employed by the railroad.

I hope someone can help me locate where he is buried and the date of his death---I would be so very grateful.

I am interested in the LACY/LACEY families of Tioga County.

John T LACY, born in Ballston, Saratoga Co, NY in 1805 and his wife Mary Polly KELLOGG were the parents 10 sons and 1 daughter.

Wm. Josiah,
Thomas G,
James M,
Phillip Judd,
Charles Truman,
Rufus Horatio,
Alfred D,
Sanford M,
Sanford D,
John Henry

Eight of their children were born in Tioga County. Three were born in Onondaga County.

For the most part this family lived, worked, died and are buried in Tioga County.

I am interested in any information on these people, those that they married, their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

I am also eager to discover who were the parents of John T LACY .

Also I have a question that you may or may not be able to shed some light on for me.

John T Lacy was supposedly born in 1805 in Ballston Saratoga Co, NY. I have this information from my grandmothers search done in the 1920s & 30.

His children , as I mentioned above are all credited with being born in Tioga Co. LDS has 2 pages on each child (on line) One crediting their birth to Tioga Co.  and a second crediting their birth to Ballston Saratoga. Naturally this would have been impossible. But I do wonder why these births are registered in Tioga and also in Ballston the supposed birth place of their father. Is it possible that even John T was not born in Ballston NY? Or was Ballston a center for such records? Was this common practice at the time?

Thanks for your help.

Nancy Doutt Tue Jan 27, 2004

I live in Big Flats, NY and, until recently, had a small bookshop in my home. I collected and sold "ephemera" as well as books. I sold my book inventory 2 years ago, but saved some items that had local historical interest. Among that collection are 17 copies of The Waverly Enterprise of 1868 and 2 from 1871. They are in very readable condition and have a limited amount of genealogical items as well as lots of ads and stories.

If your historical society does not already have these, I would be interested in donating them.

Please advise. I'll be leaving Sat. morning, Jan 31, 2004 for a 3-week vacation.

Sincerely, .

I think I have figured out that the name of the cemetery is Forrest Home.

Parma Sibyl Lyon Reynolds Fri Nov 7, 2003

I am trying to find something about my Grandfather Robert (?) LYON.

He died when my Father, Adelbert Fuller LYON, was only three months old.

They lived on Charles Street in Waverly, NY. The LYON's had a furniture factory on Broad Street. There were several brothers. I have never known any of my LYON relatives.

I guess when my Grandfather LYON died and my Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth FULLER LYON remarried Alson A. PHALIN, she lost contact with the LYON family. I have always wondered about any LYON cousins I might have had.

How can I ever get a search started on this. I put in the name Robert LYON but the only LYON's I come up with are named LYONS...not LYON.

Thank you for any information you can provide.
