I am looking for any WAYMAN in the Waverly, NY area.
My ggrandparents were Mary (WAYMAN) SMITH and Manning SMITH. Together they had my grandfather, Claude E. SMITH born in Lopez, PA 1888. Mary and Manning died when my grandfather and his brother Harry were rather young.
I came across an address for a Mrs. E. WAYMAN in Waverly (the address is probably from the 1930's) and wondered whether there is anyone with information that could be a connection.

Looking for living male BAKER descendants of early Candor BAKERs.
Nathan BAKER was raised in Candor town, Tioga county, New York. It is believed by his descendants that his half brother Isaac BAKER raised him after the death of Peter BAKER and Ruth BAKER. The issue comes in when some have interpreted the now missing headstone (DAR records 1927, family visit 1957 ) from Crines Corners cemetery as the Peter BAKER who died in 1822 as being the man referred to on Ruth's stone ( also in Crines Corners, "Wife of Peter BAKER" ). Nathan was born in 1824. A pregnancy doesn't last more than a year. It is important to discover a male BAKER descendant of the early Peter BAKER. Or perhaps link him to one of the other early BAKER families in Tioga or Thompson counties. The testing may also help resolve which other BAKERs are related.
One family story has it that Peter BAKER was buried on the farm, possibly with his first wife and that the Peter in Crines Corners Cemetery was actually Peter Jr.
A male BAKER descendant of Nathan BAKER has agreed to have his YDNA tested. A cousin should match or at least come close on even the smallest test.
The family in question; that of Peter BAKER of Candor can be found in the 1820 census. In the 1830 census Betsy Buckman ( Elizabeth Ruckman ) resides at that location along with some of the children of Peter and Ruth. Isaac may have been from an earlier wife of Peter but in that year he has assimilated Nathan into his household. There are believed to have been four boys born to Peter from the earlier family.
We need to know if any one knows the whereabouts of other male BAKER descendants of Peter or possibly one of his brothers.
Date of settlement was around 1814. One story says that Peter had brothers Thomas and Samuel and that the family settled in areas now in Caroline in Thompkins co. as well as Owego.
Your help would be appreciated.

I have been told that my Great Grandfather John or Johan WERNER is buried in the oldest section of the cementary in Candor, New York.
His wife, I am told, was one Catherine or Katherine O'DRISCOLL and that they were from County Cork, Ireland.
They lived in Candor and were proberly the fore-runners of the BANGS Family.
John BANGS went to California and dug for Gold. I was lucky enough to get some Family History which shows he is related to me by my mother, Daisy LeNeta BANGS. On his return to Candor from California, he purchased the grist mill, general store and a tavern which my grandfather John Franklin BANGS kept for him.
The family came from Pennsylvania with a timber crew, from Friendsville, PA and settled in Candor. Any information that anyone has would be greatly appreciated by me as I'm just getting into tracing that part of the family.
Thank in advance for any information that you could supply me with.

Researching Ichabod FORD, b. 1765 d. 1846, buried in Hope Cemetery, Newark Valley. He was born in Norwich, CT and came to Berkshire with his family in 1822.
He married twice, first Rebecca THOMAS of Barnstable, MA and reared eight childrenm viz: Charles Backus, Susan T., Marcus, Margaret, Elijah T., Caroline, Lebbeus and Alfred. His wife died in 1813 and he married for his second wife Theda ABBY, and reared four children Calvin, Susan, Ichabod and Philena. The foregoing was from Gay's Gazetteer.
My specific concern is finding other documentation proving Charles' descent from Ichabod and also any information on Charles' marriage to Sophronia Sparks. Also, proof that he had a daughter named Mary T. who married John DURLING of Trumansburg.
I do have the Ford Family History, but doubt it will be accepted as proof for my father-in-laws application into a heritage society.
Any help appreciated.
Miriam Kubinski-Phillips Tue Aug 7, 2007
I am researching my husband's family and found a connection to Tioga Co., New York. My husband's maternal great grandmother was Eva (LAWRENCE) ROGERS.
From the U.S. census records I know that she was born in New York State in 1865, was married to Herbert E. ROGERS in 1883 presumably in New York State, and had her first child, Madge A. ROGERS, in New York State in 1884. Herbert and Eva then moved back to Bradford Co., Pennsylvania, where Herbert had been born and raised and where the rest of their children, including my husband's grandfather, were born.
The only other records I have found for Eva LAWRENCE are the following: 1) her gravestone in Pennsylvania, which gives her death date and place as October 1937 in Ithaca, NY; and 2) the 1870 census record for an Eva LAWRENCE in Spencer, NY, who was the 5-year-old daughter of Sevellan and Helen LAWRENCE.
I have been unsuccessful, however, in finding any additional records for Sevellan and Helen LAWRENCE. No census records prior to or after 1870. The only thing I was able to find was an online listing for a gravestone at the Evergreen Cemetery in Spencer, NY, for Sevellan Fowler LAURENCE (b. 1832 d. 1903). This spelling may be a typo on the website or this may be how it appears on the headstone.
I would appreciate any information on the LAWRENCE family from Spencer and also any hints as to where to find marriage records from 1883. Neither my husband nor his siblings know the religion of Eva or Herbert, so I have no idea which church records to search.
Thank you very much for any help you can provide. .
Steve Doty Tue Aug 7, 2007
I am looking for information about my great grandfather, Charles F DOTY.
He married Mabel AMES. They had three children that I am aware of.
My grandfather Ransom James DOTY, twin brother William Francis DOTY and a sister.
I think I found him in the 1870 census living in Tioga Center, NY. If this is him he had twin sisters showing only initials and initials for the mothers name also. No father was listed so I came to an abrupt halt while doing my research.
The 1880 Census shows a charles DOTY in Newark Valley working as a farm laborer, but not sure if this is the same Charles, the age is right. It shows him living with the KURIS family at that time.
I really am not sure why no father is listed. Possible early death, or maybe working out of town, dont know. I would like to find out his fathers name so I can continue my search for my roots.
Thank you for any help.

I am looking for anyone that is willing to give me for free any old Candor Couriers that they might have sitting around taking up space that you don't want. I will take all years no matter what the shape.
My grandfather Hiram J. BEEBE and his son Will L. BEEBE started the paper back in June of 1899 it remained in the Beebe family till my dad retired in 1952. The paper was still published after that under the direction of new owners Robert and Fran FOX. In Nov. of 1956, they sold it to the very capable Bill and Vera MUIR who ran it until 1966 perhaps 1967.
I would eventually like to own every single year that the paper was in publication. I have some of the very early years but not very many. My desire is when I get a goodly amount of the couriers that I will be able to put them all on CD's by years and make them available for all to enjoy.
So if you would love to help preserve a Candor legacy by sending me your Candor Couriers no matter what the condition please get in touch with me. If you live in Tioga Co. we will come to get them. The same for counties near us such as parts of Broome, Chemung, Tompkins, that is if they aren't to far from Candor. Other wise they will have to be mailed and we will reimburse you for postage.
Please e-mail me by clicking on my blue name above.
Thanks in advace.

I've "rescued" two old photographs identified as Gertrude BASSETT SMITH which were taken at the B. L. Wright Studio in Canton, Pennsylvania. The two photographs are identical and appear to have been taken in the 1880's. Gertrude looks to be in her teens at the time they were taken. Based on limited research and thanks to the assistance of BASSETT and SMITH Family researchers we've been able to gather the following information regarding Gertrude and her family:
1870 census of Canton Township, PA:
A. B. BASSETT, age 56, a Farmer, born MA Caroline BASSETT, age 59, a Housekeeper, born NY A. B. BASSETT Jr., age 30, a Painter, born MA Maria M. BASSETT, age 27, a Housekeeper, born PA Gertrude BASSETT, age 4, at Home, born PA Warren H. BASSETT, age 1, at Home, born PA
1880 census of Grover, PA (with a new wife):
Andrew James BASSETT, age 39, born MA, a Farm Laborer, parents born MA/NY Annie BASSETT, wife, age 23, born PA, Keeping House, parents born PA Gertrude BASSETT, dau, age 14, born PA, at School Warren H. BASSETT, son, age 12, born PA, at School Mirtie May BASSETT, dau, age 2, born PA
In 1926 when her sister (Mertie BASSETT HAMM) died Gertrude (Mrs. Lewis K. SMITH) was living at 430 Pennsylvania Avenue in Waverly, NY. The obit notes that Gertrude was a step-sister, though I believe that she actually was a half-sister (different Mothers) though I don't know that for sure. I am hoping to locate someone from her family so that this wonderful old photographs can be returned to the care of her family.
If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.

I recently found an address for a great-aunt, Lillian Addie TYO, who lived in Waverly, NY in 1928.
This is the first new information I have been able to find on this "lost" relative, so I am very excited. I only have her address from 1928 listed as:
Lillian Addie TYO
100 Providence St
All previous family history info states that Lillian Addie (sometimes Addie Lillie) TYO was born January 31, 1896 in Louisville NY. Her parents were George N TYO and Callie Lillian (Raymo) TYO. Her parents both died in 1906. She was sent to live with an Aunt and Uncle, Frank and Ida TYO. When Lillie was in her teens, she ran away from home and there has been no information before now to indicate where she went or if she married or when she died.
I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can give me, especially to know if Lillian ever married.

Looking for the following members of the HARRINGTON family living on a farm in the town of Richford in Tioga County NY:
Milan HARRINGTON - Age 29 in 1860
Sarah HARRINGTON - Age 24 in 1860
Henry HARRINGTON - Age 23 in 1860
George HARRINGTON - Age 16 in 1860
Mary HARRINGTON - Age 5 in 1860
Also included in the 1860 census were Stephen, Amy, and Martha HARRINGTON who lived with the above.
Jump ahead 10 years to the 1870 census and I find Stephen, Amy, and Martha living in nearby Tompkins County in the Town of Caroline with NO mention of the others....anywhere that I can find.
Mary and Martha appear to be twins so I can't imagine why they would have been separated which leads me to believe that Mary and at least a few of her family members died between 1860 and 1870. But if so, how? And if not, what happened?
Thank you for any help.

I am trying to find more information about the parents of Isaac FOOTE.
I was at the Philadelphia National Archives yesterday and found a Levi G. FOOT living in Berkshire in the 1830 census with several children, one of which was a male child between ages 5-10.
This Isaac Daniel FOOTE was my great, great grandfather and was born in 1823 in Tioga County, but have had difficulty finding any records of his parents.
Is there some information that you have that could make a connection?
The only other FOOT living in Tioga County with a male child between ages 5-10 was a Nancy FOOT living in Candor and was between the ages of 40-50, perhaps a grandmother. She had a male between 20-30 and a female between 14-20 also in her household.
Thank you for any information or leads that you have.
