Searching for various records for my father's family who were residents of Half Moon, NY in the mid-1800s. Family name in census records at that time was spelled "Davey" but variations could include "Davy" or "Davie". Specifically looking for birth records of my grandfather (James H. Davey) and his siblings (John L. Davey, Michael Davey, and Mary Davey) all born between 1850 and 1860, as well as a death record for my great-grandfather (Timothy or Thaddeus Davey or Davy) who died in the mid-1870s. All of them included in the 1865 Census in Half Moon. After that, some of them may have moved to Greenbush in Rensselaer County (recorded there in a deed transaction dated 1880) or in Albany area. Also looking for an obituary notice that may have been published in one of the local area newspapers for James H. Davie who died on December 2, 1921.
