Peleg Burgess and Roxa Harrington
Hi,
Have you ever found more information on the Peleg Burgess and Roxa Harrington family? I have been trying to prove or disprove the link to Benajah Burgess from NY.

I'm looking for any information on the Peleg Burgess family from Washington County, NY. Peleg was born about 1806 probably in Washington County, NY, and died in Sauk County, Wisconsin 17 Aug 1861. I'm looking for the names of his parents. Some internet sites show his parents as Benajah Burgess and Zilpha Matteson. There was no mention of Peleg in the will of Benajah in 1830. All of the other children of Benajah were mentioned in the will. Another son, John Burgess, died in 1849 and again all of his siblings were mentioned in his will except for Peleg.

Peleg was married first to Roxa Harrington born 14 Dec 1801 and died 22 May 1849 perhaps at White Creek. She reportedly is buried at the Woodlands Cemetery at Cambridge, Washington County.

If you can shed any light on the parents of Peleg Burgess I would be forever greatful.

Thanks,
Bob Heck

Transfered Katie and all the relatives linked to her. Let me know if I missed any, or if you want anyone else. I love to transfer people to their families, and am not too touchy about the closeness of the relationship. Relatives are relatives...

RE: Lewis Hollow Cemetery (Pe...
I apologize for delaying a response on Lewis Hollow. today I loaded the photo I have for Lucy Cutler. It was near dark the day we were at that cemetery. I don't recall seeing a stone for Amos. however it could have been fallen, broken or missing. I took photos fo everything there, but near dark could easily missed it. the home owner was very pleasant and came out to talk to us. You can enter Lewis Hollow off Rt 22 or enter Prosser Hollow off 22 and drive around. The cemetery is behind a white house which is near and on the west side of the road. not far from a sharp turn. gps 42.7800 -73.3141. When I get down that way again I can take another look in better light. if I can help let me know.

Your family entries
Jim, I transfered your Croll children. You can change the bios etc. and connect them to your family. What a great job. You can search other burials and click on any flowers etc. you like and add to your scrapbook for using on your family. I certainly will do photos when I do mine. What a nice tribute to your ancestors.
