Bio and Links
I have been enjoying family history research for over 25 years. After a 4 year hiatus to care for my father, I've jumped back in.

My family research is centered in the Sullivan, Ulster, Orange County, New York areas. My Champagne line comes from Quebec Canada. My husband's family lines have migrated from the far east of Massachusetts, Vermont, and Connecticut through New York and on to Michigan. Other lines have come up through the south.

Across the ocean I'm interested in following up on my Ellers from Germany, my husband's Ainsworth line from England, and his Keith line from Scotland.

RE: Adams Harry - Fulton Street Cemetery
The cemetery transcription notes just said "Metcalf" on them. I did not know what it was - thought it might be an additional name for him.

Hi Kathy,

Unfortunately the person who has Hannah did the link, which I am not able to change. Please contact the Hannah's manager and request she unlink . Let me know if there is anything further I can help you with.

Hi Kathy,

I transferred Mary Ainsworth's memorial to you. I was reading some "old" messages in my Find A Grave group and realized I hadn't done that yet. I am sorry for the delay. I haven't done much on Find a Grave lately.

I trust her memorial is in good hands.

RE: edit requests for Mulligans
Hello! I would be happy to provide whatever you may need. I have many documents saved as files to my computer so I can email them- I choose to make many of these private on my Ancestry tree and on other sites so I do not have any URLs handy.

Brief overview-
Patrick and Catherine Mulligan came to the United States and settled in Fallsburgh in 1855. They had children Dennis, John, Catherine and Edward per the 1855 NYS Census.

Later, son Peter came across with wife Bridget and their three children.

Peter, Catherine, and Patrick (and Bridget) all died between 1872-1890 and are buried in the same cemetery.

After the Civil War, Dennis decided not to return home but became a tanner in Santa Cruz CA, later residing in Sawtelle CA. His family thought him dead. When Dennis was in an old Soldiers' Home, he was reunited by mail with his brother Edward, an article about this reunion was written in the Monticello Republican Watchman and can be found on The U.S. National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, 1866-1938 record for Dennis shows his sister as Catherine Thorp, of Ellenville, and his brother J. Mulligan of Sullivan Co.

Catherine (daughter) was sometimes known as Kate. She married first Eugene Thorp and later William Easman (they had one daughter, Evelyn who died in 1972).

My 3rd great-grandfather was Edward Mulligan, who became the creator of patent medicines sold throughout NY- Mulligan's Liniment and Ointment, I'm still looking for bottles! :)
I have some of Edward's original diary notes and postcards describing daily life.

Let me know just what you're looking for.

RE: 20293887
Hi Kathy,

I added this record to findagrave based on records I found at the following website:

As you can see, there is a listing for Harper, Rollin A., b. 1841, d. 1846

Unfortunately, I don't have any additional information about the Harper family, but I hope this helps.
