I am mostly interested in Otsego County gravestones. I am working on indexing cemeteries in Middlefield, Westville and now Maryland. |
If you'd like more information on memorials that I have posted please see my ancestry.com tree - Culletto's family tree.
**I will not transfer memorials from Westville Cemetery, Milford Cemetery, or Westville Baptist Cemetery. These individuals are family members. However, I would welcome any updates for those memorials!! Any other cemetery is fair game.. Thanks for understanding!**

|James Downey||Aaron Bice|
With respect, are you certain that Jacob Bice (1820-1877) is a son of Aaron Bice (1774-1858) and not a nephew? The 1830 census shows no male 0-10 or 10-15 in Aaron's household, and the 1855, 1865 and 1875 state censuses all give Jacob's birth place as Albany County; Aaron was at Middlefield, quite aways from Albany County, by 1810. Is your tree at Ancestry the Cleveland Tree?
|James Downey||Joshua Bice|
My apologies; the wife of Aaron Bice (born 1765) who went to Dutchess and then by 1804 to Schoharie was JANE Van Arsdale, not Sarah; she was the mother of Joshua Bice.
|James Downey||RE: Joshua Bice|
Sorry to be so long in replying to you; Aaron Bice of Middlefield (1774-1858) was born in present-day Milan, Dutchess County, son of John and Esther (Simons/Simmons) Bice (originally Buys); you will find his ancestry in Frank Doherty's "Settlers of the Beekman Patent," although at the time of publication, I had not yet confirmed that this Aaron Bice (son of John and Esther) is the "Orra" Bice who married 1798 Jerusha Owens (he is); (I was a principal source for the Buys chapter in Mr. Doherty's book); Aaron Bice was at Middlefield by 1810, when, as "O. ("Orra") RICE (sic, clearly intended for "Bice," he appears in that year's census. Aaron Bice had a younger brother Andrew C. Bice (born 1776), who married Elizabeth Connolly, and remained in Dutchess, where he died 1864, without leaving children. Because he left considerable wealth, but no direct heirs, the probate record lists the children of his deceased brother Aaron (died 1858) of Otsego County, and of a brother John Bice, and half-brother James Robinson. It is clear from the probate record that in your Find-a-Grave post you have left out the two oldest sons of Aaron and Jerusha (Owens) Bice: John A. Bice (born 1799), who married Martha Monroe, and removed with a large group of his Monroe in-laws to Bingham, Potter County, Pennsylvania, and Andrew Bice (1803-1872), who married Elizabeth Darling/Durling, and lived at Westford. Both these men appear in the probate records as sons of Aaron (1774-1858); no Joshua Bice is mentioned, since he does not belong to this family. Joshua Bice (1802-1883) of Schoharie was the son of a DIFFERENT Aaron Bice, who was born at Tarrytown, Westchester County in 1765, went to Lagrange, Dutchess County, married there Sarah Van Arsdale, and was at Schoharie by about 1804. Joshua Bice (born 1802), was the son of this Aaron Bice (born 1765); he married his first cousin Jemima Beagle/Beadle, whose mother Lavinia (Van Arsdale) Beagle was the sister of Sarah (Van Arsdale) Bice, mother of Joshua. I know that a number of trees at Ancestry claim (nearly all copying each other) that Joshua Bice was the son of Aaron and Jerusha of Middlefield, but it just isn't so.

We have not spoken before that I can recollect. I have been doing genealogy research on the Doolittles but my leads go to Windsor and Connecticut. I know there is a branch that goes out to Oswego.
|Jim High||RE: Fred Norton|
I found the correct Fred Norton. He just didn't show up on my initial Find A Grave search. Thank goodness for FamilySearch.org.

|L B Thornton||RE: Castle hinman|
Hi, I am not sure what I said. But, he and Sally had to have been married circa 1825 because they had 2 daughters and 1 son under 5 yrs old on the 1830 Fed Census. The daughters must have died and we know Luke did because on the 1840 Fed Census, he has a new daughter under 5. We know he married Portia Ann Sackett from Sackett in America. I betting it was around 1838 to have Sally Ann by 1839.
Does this clarify things?
