I'm having some difficulty tracing my ggGM: BAGLEY, Sarah - b. 1790 in NY m. 1807 to Elias JENNISON III, prob. NY 9 children born ca. 1808 - ca. 1826, all in NY d. 1856 on the trail to Iowa (prob. in IN or IL) Her son, my gGF, George Elias JENISON, declared in the 1900 US Census [Wright Co., Iowa, pg. 268], that his mother was born "in Canada," but the Census of 1850 for Wabash Co., Indiana [Noble Twp, p. 447] indicates that she was b. in "New York."; I believe that she may have been born in Ontario Co.

Her father *may* have been Edward BAGLEY.

Need parents and birthplace of Oliver CAIN (circa 25 Nov 1793, MA or VT - 8 Mar 1841, Carlton, Orleans Co., NY), who went to Orleans Co. in 1819. and purchased 100 acres in the Holland Purchase. He married Olive ALDRIDGE or ALDRICH (8 July 1798, Ontario Co., NY - 10 Sept. 1880, Carlton, Orleans Co., NY) circa 1816-17. The Latter Day Saints International Genealogical Index B218 for United States & Canada contains a birth record for an Oliver CAIN, whose mother and father were John and Anna CAIN. That Oliver was born 27 November 1792 in Taunton, Bristol Co, MA. [we know that our Oliver CAIN was born ca 1793, but it was thought to have been in Vermont] There is also a birth record for a John Cain (same mother and father), whose birth was 24 May 1790 in Taunton, Bristol Co, MA. The IGI also has a marriage record for John CAIN and Anna BARROWS, whose marriage occurred 4 May 1786 in Taunton, Bristol Co, MA. I don't know for sure that this is our Oliver CAIN, but it is possible, as that is a distinct name, and also he named one of his sons John. Oliver and Olive had 6 children: John A., who was married to Betsey ROSE and Philena HOUSEMAN; William A., husband of Dolly J. DORKIG; Emily Ann, wife of Peter B. COVERT; James Alva, who married Clarissa T. HOUSEMAN; George Washington, husband of Fanny Eliza COONRAD; and Olive Elizabeth, wife of Joseph Strike KEELER. Would very much like to hear from anyone researching these people.

Looking for my CAMPBELL family. Lewis b. ca. 1770-80, Christopher b. ca. 1780-90. Also James born in early 1800s'. His daughter Lucy married Fred WILBUR from Victor, Ont Co. All went to MI. Thanks Alice

 My connections to the Town of Seneca is with my Campbell family. A James CAMPBELL was b. 30 Jan 1806, Cherry Valley, NY. He was the son of James CAMPBELL who was also b. Cherry Valley. The date that was given to me by a family member for the birth date of my last known James CAMPBELL is a birth date that correspondes with that of one of Col. Samuel CAMPBELL's children. Although my family has seemed to connect us with the family of Col. Samuel, and placed us at the time of the Cherry Valley massacre, I do not believe that my family and Col. Samuel's family to be one of the same. I have not been able to find my last known James anywhere in Cherry Valley, so I have come to the conclusion, that he was probably not from the town of Cherry Valley, but from the area around the town known as Cherry Valley. I have a copy of his son (James CAMPBELL) death certificate which shows his father James b. in Cherry Valley. This last known James was married to a Susan. There is a water mark or stain across the original document where Susan's last name appears, so it has been difficult to determine what her last name was. I have concluded it to be either HULL, HUSE, HULT , HUTT, or HUNT. She was also b. Cherry Valley. Her death date is unknown, but I believe the last known James Campbell moved with his son, James to the Town of Seneca. Last known James d. 23 Mar 1870, location unknown. His son James was b. 30 Jan 1806, Cherry Valley and d. 30 Mar 1886, Town of Seneca. He m. Elizabeth (Deborah) HOVEY, she d. 21 Jun 1885, Town of Seneca.
