Joyce's Search Tip - January 2008
Do You Know that you can search  the site by using the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? Family pages are listed on the Family list but also on the individual Township pages in the Photo, Bible, and other sections.
My ggggparents were Pardon Austin & Hepzibah Austin (1st cousins) and had the following nine children: Simeon 1808-, Ira 1810-1878, my gggf George W. 1812-1897,; Mariett (Maryett) 1814-1896, Jennette 1820-1897, Elijah 1825-1860/65, Jeremiah  1827-1901, Dyer 1829. unk & James M. 1835-1863, All were born in Arlington, Bennington, Vermont. Pardon & Hepzibah relocated to Union Twp, Tioga Cty, NY sometime between 1850 & 1860. They were in the 1850 census of Arlington, Bennington Cty, VT and the 1860 census of Union Twp, Tioga Cty, PA. Four of their sons also settled in the Union Twp. area: Simeon, Ira, George W. & Jeremiah. A biography of Jeremiah Austin is presently on the Tri-Counties Genealogy & History by Joyce M. Tice Site 
My great great grandparents, George W. Austin & Eliza A. Liston had three sons; Francis H., Ira & George H.  Francis H. Austin married Weltha A. "Wealthy" Larrabee, dau. of Thomas Larrabee & Anna Harrington. Francis & Wealthy had the following children: Eliza Frances, Emma, Leroy G., Frederick Liston "Fred" (my grandfather), Stephen Walter, Vance & Clara May. Many of the Austin family are buried in the Church of Christ Cemetery in Ogdensburg, Union Twp, Tioga, PA.
My father & his father (Fred) relocated from PA to NY state in the 1940's. My siblings and I were raised and grew up in Newark, Valley, Tioga County, New York. 

This is a brief description of my Austin family. I'm attaching several photos which you're welcome to post on your web site. The 1st is of Francis & Wealthy in a horse & Buggy. Next are the seven children (with their spouses) of Francis & Wealthy. The final is a Austin family get together on the Austin homestead in Union Twp., taken about 1902. We think this the same location where their son, Stephen, held many family reunions after this one. 

I would like to hear from anyone with connections to the above families. My email address is


Hi Joyce,

Just thought we'd say hello and compliment you once again on your wonderful TriCounties Site, which we have visited many times since we begain researching Dee's Austin family in Union Twp, Tioga County, PA in 1995/96. We eventually established Dee's Austin ancestry with the help of many other researchers and the "Austin Family Genealogical Society" of which Dee is now a member. Thanks for all the work you do.

Happy Hunting,
Bob & Dee Austin Bond, Avon Park, Florida
