The above photos are from the same source as the Luther Joralemon photo at top. Obviously the dates of these photos are not of a person born in 1889 if taken in 1892 ands 1896. It may be a different Edward. It being with the Luther photo indicates same family. If you can clear it up. let me know - Joyce

Solution - the photos are of Edward James Joralemon / Foreman born 1875 in Illinois- Family name was changed by his father.

I have Edwin H. Joralemon as 9 Sept 1889. He is shown in the 1900 census with his family as also born 1889. Rick

Thanks Joyce! Nice to see that Bible record. Picked up the middle name of Helen David. Do you have an email address for Rick Clawson? I tracked what would be his mother or grandmother to the Niagara Falls area in the early 1900's. She would be the Blanche Marie Joralemon in the bible record born 1893. I would be very interested in chatting with him and also give him the complete dates that he is evidently unable to read in the bible. Rev. Peter Marion Joralemon had a brother Edward Joralemon who removed west to the St. Louis area and I have been unable to really find much about him, but the photos of the Edward Joralemon would seem to be a younger person. I did census soundex search a few years ago  but will pursue this again. If I find something conclusive I will forward to you for that page. Do you want full date of birth and death for Luther Joralemon to go with his name and photo? Kelsey Jones

Hi Joyce,
My name is Jamie Coomes and I currently live in Wisconsin.  Thanks to the wonderful internet I located your fabulous website while I was trying to figure out how some old NY photos fit into my family tree.  I was thrilled when I opened your SRGP site to find the exact photo I had in my hand on your front page.  The photo you have is stated to be Luther Joralemon.  My photo has written on the back "Ernest Joralemon"  My photos were in the prior possession of my husbands grandfather Edward James Foreman, from Missouri.  I also have a photo of a Jennie E. Joralemon dated march 1896, along with some others who definitely look to be related.  I would love to share info with you as well as some others listed on your website to try to find out how the families are related.  I had previously been stuck in the St. Louis  area when it came to Edward's ancestors, now I'm wondering if the name was changed along the journey from NY to MO.

Feel free to contact me any way you find easiest, and feel free to share my info with anyone you think might help.  I will scan and send the other photos under separate cover.

Thanks for your time,
Jamie Coomes

John Mingos

Descendants of Cornelia S David

Generation No. 1

1.  CORNELIA S1 DAVID was born 1832 in Roxbury, NY Delaware Co, and died Abt. 1905 in Broome Co,NY Union Twsp.  She married ALONZO MINGOS (Source: 1851 Tow Court House, Land grant application.) 25 September 1864 in Residence of H S Hollen, Liberty Corners, son of COONRAD MINGOS and SARAH.  He was born 1 April 1818 in Thompkins Co,NY near Lansing, and died 27 June 1884 in Monroeton Boro, Coles cem, new marker 1984.

1840 census Roxbury, Delaware Co,Ny  david David age 40-50 Pg 351 Hert. Quest  1010001  1120001
          Cornelia is 8 yrs and Edward B David is 3 yrs
1850 Roxbury,Ny  I have spent far too much time and effort on Alonzo's missing data? Further searches of Roxbury &
         Middletown should clear up the David's.
1850 census Roxbury Pg 399  George H David age 27 blacksmith $600 b NY wf Eliz age 24  Lorana David age 58 b NY          (Wife of David David)  Edward age 13,  Cornelia age 18 b NY
1857 Terry Twsp was organized
1858 Brad Co Map  no David in Asylum or Durell or elsewhere
1860 Roxbury,NY  Found her!  Edward B David #237 blacksmith age 23  $500 $100, Margaret Wf age 22,
          Cornelia age 27 b NY Seamstress.  This census was taken 4th of July.  So Cornelia and her brother Ed are
          of David David b abt 1798, who is likely a brother of Richard David b 1802.
1860 Census  I have some census on these David's. Amasa and Bruce both arrived in Brad Co prior to the Civil War.
          Cornelia m in 1864 to live with Alonzo on Hollon Hill.  Deeds could be checked in the Towanda Court House for
          Terry Twsp, Camptown & Asylum.  The ages of Davids - Charles b 1830, Cornelia b 1832, Bruce b 1835, and
          Amasa b 1842. 1st cousins . The dates of the Davids come from the Tri Co Web site, Bible record
          of Blanch Joralemon Clawson. I searched Middletown,NY 1850 census partially and gave up finding Richard David

          Amasa David, Mar 21 1842 - d 27 Oct 1911  buried Monroeton cemetery. So his wf was Slotrey - he is connected to
                 Charles David in Terry. Civil War Veterans buried in Brad Co Graves Reg Project 24 377
          Wf Jennie E Slotrey 1853 - 1919 Monroeton cem.     Prob m abt 1873

          Charles David b Sept 1,1829 - Mar 1871     1870 Terry Twsp census,  miller  $2500  $300 b NY .
                  Wf Esther b NY age 30, Hattie age 15, Martha age 13
          M Slotry age 40 1870 Terry census, wf Lydia age 45
          Bruce S David, b Jan 4 1835 Wyalusing Twsp 1870 census . VET records show b 1835 - d 07 Mar 1911 Cpl 8th Regt

1860 census Heritage quest index  Richard David Asylum Twsp age 58,b Aug 13,1802 d April 1876 a miller $200.b NY
         wf Cath Lewis 57 b May 22 1804 d 1884 , Helen 20, Amasa 19 miller b NY.  So this is Cornelia's relation that
        brought her to Brad Co. just after the 1860 census.  Alonzo was just up the hill at Hollon Hill
1860 census Jonathan David age 40 West Burlington, Barre(Bruce S) David age 26 Rome Wf Angelia age 26 .
1860 Chas David age 30 S Warren Twsp b NY miller $200, so he's not yet to Terry Twsp.

AMASA DAVID of Terrytown, enlisted in Co. I, 6th Pa. Reserves, Oct. 16, 1861, and served with that regiment until Sept. 20, '62, when he was transferred to Co. A, 8th Regt. U. S. Infantry, in which he served until Feb. 15, 1864, when he re-enlisted for three years. With the exception of four or five weeks in the hospital, he was with his regiment until the time of his discharge. He escaped without being wounded or captured, and was discharged as quartermaster sergeant at Raleigh, N. C., Feb. 25, 1867, having served 5 years and 4 months. source:  Boys in Blue Heverly

1870  Census - no Cornelia , Alonzo, Wells, Frank, Abram  or Legrande, who  was b.April 1870. This census was abt
          July.  A check of  Roxbury, NY in Delaware Co, NY 1870 census - nothing. Heritage Index of Pa show only 14
          Mingos in Pa, 8 in Brad Co, and Alonzo not one of the other 6.  They seem to simply be missed

        Alonzo Mingos(F4)  Family Knowledge: none , only research
1818 born in NJ on 1850 &1880 census or U Mt Bethal Twsp near Easton, Pa. His obit says b Thompkins Co, NY on
        April 1.  Conrad(F3) has a Date of Deed  sale on Oct 10,1817 with Date of Record both Oct and Dec 1818. I
        always presumed they moved to Lansing in about Oct 1817, but maybe there is another scenario for Sarah
        who is pregnant. In summary, the NJ entries are odd, I must believe the obit.  There are lots of Alonzo's in this
        period. There was a children's book in the early 1800's  'Alonzo & Melissa'   Pg 153 Bradsby, Hist of Brad Co.
1837,Dec  He is the youngest of Conrad's children to come to Liberty Corners (how long did it take to drag
        lumber up the hill and build a house? The family may not have arrived until spring 1838
1845,Oct 28   1st land action  Bgt from Valentine Strouse  MonroeTwsp - $270, but 1867 sale says Durell.  Alonzo -
        no deeds in original Conrad, Joe & John farms.  Valentine's Bro Jonas Strouse m Sarah Mingos, dau of John
        in 1843. Valentine bgt this 58 acres (560 x 500 yards, lengths = to a par 5 golf hole) from William Strouse on 30
        Dec, 1843. It begins at  a white oak corner of a lot of land joining Joseph Mingos and Samuel Dimock. It looks
        like on the 1858 map that Joseph is on the East side of the road, but his name is on the West side.
1850 Census  value of real estate  $1000 farmer Monroe twsp.  b in NJ is odd. Alonzo is House # 30 ! Located him
       finally. Chris Piatt 29 (Wf is Eliz, dau of Coonrad) is on the West side of the road, Coonrad & Philip 28,
      Joseph 27,  and John 26. The 1867 sale says Durell, so that this 58 acres is on the East side of the dirt road.
1852,Jan 29 before Justice of Peace  Conrad's land application War of 1812
          In the presence of  ALONZO MINGOS   Justice Jared Goodenough
1853,Nov 12   28 acres from  Conrad, East side of road.  " hand paid" $250. The land  shows on the Lake Ames
         map across from Coonrad's! After all these years, finally located Alonzo's farm with Pursila & children.
1857,Jan 28  Letter from Alonzo (Monroe Tsp) & Pursila to Abram Bois (where?), mentons Philo. Original with
        Elaine Heddle.The letter is in Alonzo's hand writing - same signature as 1851 land application
       at Towanda Court House. He is bargaining for farm land for Abram - 50 Acres from Philo Mingos in
       Monroeton or the farm of Mr. Hale. Both sellers want about $300 downpayment and a team (horses).
       This is the only known artifact of the 1st 4 generations of Menges/Mingos.
1857,Dec  Alonzo sold 20 acres unimproved Durell land to D O Holland  & Daniel Heman Jun 1858.
1858 taxes dated 26 Nov 1857 Mingus, Alonzo  10 acres imp $100, 15 acres ump $75, house $40, $50 2 horses,
        $10 1 horse.  These Mingos were not dairy farmers - grain & products.
1858 Map Lake Ames -  a J Mingos house was in the new Tow Twsp. South Towanda Twsp came into existance
        on Dec 15,1851! Subsequently "South" was dropped for Towanda Township. In Durell is P Mengos &
        B Mengos! In Monroe Twsp on the S to N dirt road is A or P Mingos, J Mingos & J Mingos. The Oct 4, 1858 tax
        assessment in sequence shows(S to N) David ,Joseph, Alonzo and then Philip. Alonzo is 40 acres imp $360,
        30  acres ump $150, house now $100, $50 2 horses, $24 2 cows.
1860 tax assessment  dated Oct 3, 1859 David(south), Joseph, Alonzo, Philip and Philo. Alonzo's taxes are the same
        as in 1859 except the two cows are only $20.
1860 Census Monroe Tsp shows Conrad with Alonzo,  value of land increases to $2500. personal property $100.
1863  1st wife Pursila Bois dies. 1864 Remarries Cornelia S David at residence of H S Hollon, Rev R L Stillwell
1867,April  Monroe deed book, Alonzo to Eliza Benjamen. This must be the farm across from Coonrad & Joe -
         but I haven't checked the deed.  Also Tow Boro next deed book entry, Alonzo from David Pratt, physician
1869 Map Atlas by Beers - WOW Alonzo Mingos on State St. Tow. His 1st move after remariage -  near Dr Pratt
          at corner of State & Main, and two houses East on State St from his office,  I finally found Pursila's parents,
          one mile up the hill from the Monroeton bridge. Oct 13,1869 Brad Co Tax Assessment(1870) - Mingos, Alonzo
         House & Lot $750, $40 1 horse, $40 Buggy
1870 After 30 years, I still can't find him in 1870 census?  His sons Charles & Warren are working on the Stephen
         Bois farm one mile from Monroeton bridge. It must be that Alonzo, Cornelia, Legrande, Abram and Wells were
         missed in the 1870 Census. Wells is not in 1870 Renova, Clinton Co where he died in 1873. I have searched
         Tow Boro Microfilm and Quest Index CD of Brad Co - nothing. A search of 1871 Assessment books in BCHS
         proves he was there - Oct 15,1870 House & Lot $750, $50  1 horse. The only thing I can think of is to go to the
         National Archives and request to look at the original census pages for 1870.
1871,May  Tow Boro Alonzo from Lewis Beach & to LL Beach. Lewis L Beach 57y  is a farmer in Springfield Twsp.
          Lewis B Beach( son) age 29 is a physician in Tow Boro. Maybe using Dr Pratt's facilities?

1884,June 27  OBITUARY, ALONZO MINGOS  Bradford Republican Newspaper, 7/10/1884
      "DIED MINGOS AT MONROETON,June 27,Mr. Alonzo Mingos ,aged 66 years.Mr.Mingos was born in Thompkins

1884,July  see Cornelia    " estate of Alonzo Mingos".  I now have 3 Monroeton funerals in the mid 1880's where
        there is no gravestone? Stephen Bois d 1885, Alonzo and Alverilla Mingos, Wf of William Mingos. Something
        must be askew at Mr Richart's. Alonzo is living 1 mile North of Coles cem, and likely was buried there. In 1880

1972  In family bible, I have an old man's picture which could be Alonzo or Alonzo Bowman. It looks like
         Edward in his younger picture, but the jacket is very old style. Bible was kept by Francis Bowman.
1984 I placed a marker for Alonzo in Coles cemetery next to Pursila Mingos. It's strange, Henry never knew about
          Alonzo or the Liberty Corn. families? And neither Edward or Cornelia put a marker on Alonzo's grave?

Marriage: 25 September 1864, Residence of H S Hollen, Liberty Corners
