Joshua Bailey
Hi Suzanne,

First, let me thank you for volunteering to help with these listings! You are fabulous!!

Second, can you tell me where the birth information for Joshua Bailey came from? He is my 4th greatgrandfather and I'm researching his line for DAR. I've seen on Ancestry and Family Search that his father was Nehemiah Bailey from Rye, Westchester Co. NY. HOWEVER, I can find no "proof", no Bible record, baptismal or county record for his birth date of 14 Sept. 1769. The only proof I can find of him is in "Pioneer and Patriot Families of Bradford County" - Heverly which picks up his story after moving there. It only says he was a native of Orange County, NY.

Please, if you have birth documentation, could I obtain a copy of it from you or can you tell me how to find it?

Many, many thanks!!!!!

They are all directly south of her and share a family monument as well as having individual markers.

There is also a Jemima Ankrom located close by.

RE: Susannah Bailey
Me again. According to History of Bradford County, page 614, Susannah's father was Amos Bennett of "Orange County, NY". The Bennett family in my line were from Rhode Island. See Find A Grave Memorial# 57273628. He was born 1725 to 1730. Anyway, Amos would be your 5th ggf.

RE: Susannah Bailey
Very distant. She is the 2nd great grandmother of husband of grand aunt. I am related through Gordon Goff who married Mehitable. Later she married Harry Coolbaugh, who it appears was married to her sister, Polly. Susannah's dad, Amos Bennett -- he he related to Ishmael Bennett, Jr.? My 5th great grand uncle, Capt. Dietrich Huyett (1751-1778), (Dethich Hewitt --English spelling) fought and died not too far from Bradford County, PA at the Battle of Wyoming Valley. His widow, Elizabeth (Searle) Huyett married Bennett. Dietrich and Elizabeth lived in Pittston and they had 3 children that were adopted by Bennett. Have you done much work on Amos Bennett? I'd be interested in learning if there is a connection.

RE: Elizabeth Bell Cox
I am new at this, so could be off track....but: Elizabeth Bell Cox married Jacob Hulslander and had a son, Peter, in 1813. Jacob died in 1849. Elizabeth Wilber is listed in Peter's household in the 1850 census along with his wife's (Amanda Rose Soper) parents. Elizabeth's place of birth is listed as England. My Elizabeth died in 1853 also. Does this help or confuse?

RE: Elizabeth Bell Cox
Elizabeth Wilber (70) is listed under Peter Hulslander's household in the 1880 census. She could be another relative or Elizabeth Bell Cox could have remarried. Can you help identify her? Thanks.

There are two Find A Grave listings for Elizabeth Bell Cox Hulslander. One is marked Wilber. Is this the same person and do you have a record of a marriage?

RE: Nathaniel Whiting

Your anonymous friend & I are 8th cousins 2x removed, although there may be a nearer relationship, if she also is descended from Ann Whiting.

I have just started researching this branch of my family and am about to move on to Nathaniel's parents. Most family trees identify his parents as John Whiting (1561-10/20/1617) & Sarah Smith (1569- 10/4/1649) both born & died in England. I cannot vouch for this at this time, but it is a start for my further exploration.

If my cousin is an member, she can go to the search tab, scroll down to card catalog, type in Whiting, and that will bring up a number of options one of which is the Whiting genealogy, which he/she can read online. He/she can also check libraries or the state historical society for the same book--Whiting Genealogy, Nathaniel Whiting of Dedham, Mass., 1641 & Five Generations of his Descendants; compiled by Theodore Lazell.

Please ask your friend (my cousin) to contact me if she finds out anything about his parents. My email address is, and my profile is listed under my member number 47719987.
