Subject: Re: Waverly Class of 1964 [Bradford or Chemung]
Date: 6 Dec 2007
I do not know if I am writing to the correct person. However, in 1964 I graduated from Waverly High School. There were several students in my graduating class that were from the Chemung area that I have often wondered about. I have been gone from Waverly for many years and when asking about such prior students have been informed that no one seems to know what became of them. I live in Arizona and have often felt that I owed them at least a "Hello". If you are aware of such graduates, I would certainly enjoy knowing that they are still around:)))

First, I wanted to tell you how great I think your works is! I bet many folks have a better sense of their ancestral pasts after talking to you, and I appreciate that there are people willing to help us eek out our histories!
I am just looking into a small section of our family history for my grandma, who is writing it all up. We are trying to find out if a connection exists between a resident of Chemung County by the name of Sewell Pike (b. Oct 15, 1777), married to Pamela Beardsley (b. Feb 19, 1788), is related to Zebulon Montgomery Pike, the explorer.
We have read that Sewell was buried in the Winton/Catharine Cemetery, but that the headstone reads Mrs. Sewell Pike, not Mr. (Following Sewell's death, Pamela moved west with her sons).
There was a posting from Karen Pike in 2002 that was also seeking similar information, namely the names of Sewell's parents, location of parents, and any other information that is available.
The lineage we are working on is as follows: Samuel Pike (?) + Sewell's mother Sewell Pike (1777) married Pamela Beardsley (1788) Daughter Elizabeth Pike (1807) married Ben Lockerby (1807) Son Seneca Lockerby (1845) married Catherine Barton (1856) Daughter Ermina Lockerby married Roldan Kingman (my great great grandfather) Daughter Marion Jane Kingman (1904) married Earl A Cook (1903) Son Alan F Cook (1928) married Jean Thor (1929) (my grandmother who is researching all this!)
I know that your region of expertise is the TriCounties, so I'm not expecting you to send info on Zebulon Pike. However, if there are any details about Sewell, his parents, his life, etc, we would love to read them. Do you have access to any photos?
Thank you for any details you can pass along. Also, do you happen to know of other resources that are particularly helpful with historical details in that area (I live in Seattle, and am very unfamiliar with the area).
Thanks! Kara Jensen firstname.lastname@example.org

I am looking for a genealogy of Eileen COLLINS, the astronaut. I know she was from Elmira, but I wonder if she had any Collins relatives from Bradford Co. My great and gg-grandparents lived in the Ridgebury, Bradford Co. area during the mid-1800s until the early 1900s. My gg-grandparents, Patrick SULLIVAN and Mary COLLINS Sullivan`were both born in Ireland. I do not know the names of their parents, but their children born in PA were Thomas b 1844, Mary b 1846, Ann 1849, Timothy b ca 1852, and Margaret b?. (Ann married an Edward McASEY/MAXEY, Timothy married Kathryn HURLEY b. 25 MARCH 1860 in Elmira. She was the daughter of Lawrence HURLEY and Ellen (Helena) CROWLEY Hurley, both born in Ireland,and Margaret married Ed SWEEENEY). I'm guessing that the children were named after their paternal grandparents first and then their maternal grandparents next.

I am looking for HAMILTON, Elmer E. , his wife Nellie Mildred Johnson HAMILTON. I need to know their death dates and where they are buried. I am researching the Johnson genealogy. Vital information on their son HAMILTON, Max is also needed. They last resided in Elmira, New York to my knowledge. I believe they were married in Illinois around 1890. They have four other children that I have found in the Illinois Census reports. They are Darrell, Lulu, Grace, and Whedon.
