Wife: Ruth Wilbor/Wilbur beleived died 1867. Children Robert Jr 1861.Frederick 1864. and Charles 1866 were all placed in orphanage(by census 1870)Poughkeepsie N.Y.. Robert Jr was my grt granfather.Orpanage sent him to a farm in Putnam Co. NY We are still in the surrounding area
Robert J.(Sr) Appears in the 1870 NY census as being in Pleasant Valley, N.Y. After which he disappears.
Pleasant Valley Town Records were beleived to have been destroyed in a fire in the early 1920's? He appears in no later censuses. If anyone has some suggestions or knows the local cemeteries to Pleasant Valley that would be great.Some notation in my old notes say there is a Robert KEDNIE buried in Salt Point. But where?Thanks to all. Debby

RE: Perrault Grave Stone
Hi Debby

Thanks for the Perrault grave stone picture.
I wanted to ask if you have any pictures or family history regarding William & Ethel? I am doing
genealogy research on the Perrault/Perro family.
Anything you have would be greatly appreciated.
Happy Holiday

Zebulon Crane
Dear Debbie:
Thank you for the photo of Zebulon Crane. I have many ancestors originating in New England as early as 1620. My favorite aunt was a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints. Throughout our childhood she told us about our lineage. My ancestors stayed for 3 generations in MA, PA, NC, VT, NY, MN, NE, etc.

I am just beginning my search for stories of the early colonists and Revolutionary War Soldiers. The problem lies in finding documentation. I'm intrigued by the databases that are available now.

Thank you for your hard work.

Hi Deb.
Did you know that there is a Kidney website? Go to Descendants of John/Jan Kidney. It has a lot of info. Also,there is a website for the 20th. Go to Ulster Guard. A picture of My Jesse is there. There are also some books about the unit at Gettysburg written by Sewell Osborn, who does the website. The one about the first day tells about Jesse being wounded and captured. Sewell told me that Jesse ate bones while in Andersonville to help the diarreah. On my grandmother Kidney's side I have a gr grandfather buried in the Richmond National Cem. and a gr uncle buried at Andersonville. Willet is said to be buried in the Old Ellenville Cemetery but the people at the town clerk's office didn't really know where it was. The sent us to one that is not kept up but we couldn't find him there.
