SALISBURY Tue Jan 21 16:40:03 1997
I am looking for information on the SALISBURY family. I know that they setle in New York at one time or another. They may even have come into this country through New York, (not sure of this), but I know that they spent some time in New York. Is there, or was there, such a place as Norway and/or Russia New York? I have some family information that tells me that they spent some time in these two cities. They were there in the early 1700's and 1800's. Can aanyone help me? I am sure that they were all related for one of the family members, when he died had well over one hundred ggggrandchildren, or so the article I have said. Some of the names that I am looking for are: Ackland Nathaniel, Matilda, William, Richard and I could go one forever for they must have had to have had every name availble to name all the descendants that there are to this family name. These people were Statesmen, farmers. cheese buyers and educators. Has anyone ever heard or know about a district of yore known as Dairy Hill? My family owned a farm in that District. Some of my family fought in the War of 1812 from New York. Some fought with Great Britian. I think that they came here from England or Wales. Please see if you might be able to help me. I also know that they lived in a town called Fairfield. I do not know what counties any of these places are in.

Natalie and Ben had two children together named Frank BROOKER and Natalie BROOKER. Seth SEELYE and Natalie THOMPSON had two children, John SEELYE and Charles Thompson SEELYE. Charles Thompson SEELYE was my direct ancestor. He was born 27 Jun 1868 in Baltimore, Maryland; died 22 Mar 1953. Charles married Emma Mary HALES 18 Oct 1887. Emma Mary HALES was born 14 Dec 1867 in Philadelphia, PA; died 30 Nov 1960. Family records state that Seth SEELYE later moved to Philadelphia, PA and opened a tobacco store at 2nd and Mormonsing Ave., Philadelphia, PA. I'm trying to research Seth SEELYE; to discover where he was born in NY, and who his parents/grandparents were. My family records state that either his father or grandfather was an Iroquois Chief. Records don't state which tribe/nation/band etc. he was in. If anyone has any information on the SEELYE family or GIGUE/GIGNE (records have both spellings stated) family, I would be very interested in corresponding. I also would be happy to reimburse those researchers interested for their efforts.

SWART Sun Jan 5 11:31:57 1997
Any information on the parents of Conrad Swart (ca 1742-1810) of Bern, Albany Co., NY. Henry Cady's records (ca 1910) state the parents are Adam Swart and Catherine Van Patten, but I have not found any records to confirm that. I have looked in R.W. Vosburgh's records for the Beaver Dam (Bern), Lutheran (Bern), Schoharie Lutheran, Schoharie Dutch Reformed, and other records for the Dutch Reformed churches of Kingston, Schenctady and Albany with out luck.

Sent a query through this process about 10 days ago. Haven't seen my posting yet. Is there a problem with the query? Did you receive the query, perhaps because of a problem at my end. The query pertained to William Sweet and wife Susannah (a marriage query), marriage before 1797 and the posting was to appear in Washington County, N. Y. Thank you
