Occupation: Weaver, Farmer.

Emigration: 1637

Emigration: John Roote came to America in 1640. Other spelling is "Root".

John came from England in the "Increase" and settled in

Farmington in 1640.

According to Mr. Jesse Root, as quoted in J. P. Root's "Root Genealogical Records," John was a Puritan who lived with a paternal uncle after his father's death. This uncle later adopted John. The uncle was a wealthy man, possibly of noble birth, advanced in years, and a zealous opponent of popery [the Catholic church]. He insisted that John go into the Parliamentary army under Cromwell, to fight against Charles I and the Catholics. John had an aversion to war, and chose instead to join a company of Puritans who were going to America. He was one of the first settlers of Farmington, CT, in 1640. He and his wife were members of the Farmington Congregational church. At his death, he left what was considered then a good estate valued at 819.

I don't know if you are familiar with the website fulton history? It has many old newspapers in a searchable database format.
http://www.nypl.org/collections/articles-databases/fulton-history-old-new-york-state-historical-newspapers

There you will find the 1800 Catskill NY Western Constellation which has announcements about Stephen Root and I believe that is the relative you are seeking. Also, in the Catskill Recorder you will also find Hattie May's obit.

One paper mentions a dry goods store at Catskill landing, which is now better known as the Point or Dutchman's Landing. Did you check the Catskill Village or Thompson Street Cemetery? There are many old stones there, also.

History
Hey Eric ... Steve (Ron's brother).

I found this book online ... the history of Ashtabula. It indicates that Ephraim Root was a clerk and member of the Conneaut Land Company in 1796. I think that is the same Ephraim that started Rootstown in Ohio. So it appears that Ephraim invested in Ohio ... then encouraged relatives to move there. If that is all the case, it would be interesting to find out who those relatives were ... and the details. And any connection too Rootstown other than Ephraim.

Of all the story's of the Calvary office I've heard I've not heard of a self addressed stamped envelope!

I'd hold off sending for a couple of months unless you're in a rush; I'd guess someone will fill it or we'll get a map somehow, etc.

Again though, probably 50/50 chance there's stone there.

Yes they are! Do you have any family data that may be of interest to me, for the family information part of my book? I have very little on the older families. Id like stories, pics , or copies of docs, or if you know where their home was. Very few buildings still exist from the time. I am doing research on the church also.

Hi, I just found this info on A.com. James Monroe Lemaster was my great grandfather. The pictures you have of him & Daniel Phillip Lemaster were pictures I got from my grandpa Hasten Lemaster. I had those pictures attached to my tree years ago. But I find that you don't have my grandpa Hasten Lemaster listed as son to James & Laura Blanton Lemaster.Also for some reason some people have Lewis Lemaster, Daniels father as dying on Sept. 1858 which isn't right since he is in the 1860 census. I have noticed some confuse Lewis with his brother Frances who did die in Sept. 1858. All of this is really great information.
Good hunting in searching for your wife.
