Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a reunited adult adoptee and my birth name was Anne Marie Weatherwax. I have been a professional writer for more than 50 years and a graphic artist since 1976. I am also one of the most involved Weatherwax family researchers in the United States. (The family just celebrated the tricentennial of its immigrant ancestor's arrival in 2010.) I have also extensive genealogical records for both the ancestors and descendants of Michael and Cornelia (VanNess) VanDerCook of NJ and NY. Additional families that I am researching include Francisco, Delamater, Vickery, Blood, Nichols, Kent and Hotovy.

Thanks so much for helping fill in the part of Floyd Spencer's life that included Anna. I have woven your information into his bio. My guess was on target but it's always wonderful to get confirmation.

Delamater / Overocker Lines
Reading your very extensive research on most of these people, I want to say welcome to the family.
I find it odd at times when some family members of my fathers side are found in the southern part of the State where I find my Mothers Family members, then again her side were found up here in Albany where by had married into my Fathers side.

Intermarriage's back in the 17 & 1800's were outrageous to say the least. Some day I will also apply for the various DAR & SAR.

I should have said, if you are not already a member of DAR, and are interested in joining DAR, I would be delighted to help you join.

Kindest Regards,
Brenda Hare

Lucinda "Lucy" Briggs Overacker
I am trying to help a lady join DAR through the Overacker line. She descends from Henry, son of Lucinda (Briggs) Overacker.

What do you have that proves that Henry was a son of Michael and Lucinda (Briggs) Overacker?

I do agree that Henry is a son. I know that he was a brother to Simeon, who was a son. Both Henry and Simeon fought in the Civil War. Henry died during the Civil War.

I have heard that Simeon's CW pension names his brother, Henry, but I don't have a copy of Simeon's pension. Do you happen to have a copy of his pension record or know someone who does?

Will gladly pay for help. I am just missing this one connection to finish up her application. She is not into researching. I am just a volunteer. Thank you for anything you can do to help me.

RE: Beidler graves
You're very welcome for the photos... it was a beautiful day in the cemetery! After checking your bio, I have a question for you. I noticed that one of the names that you research is Nichols. I realize that it is not an unusual name, but I'll throw this out anyway -- a friend of mine is trying to locate a Minnie Nichols who was an orphan train child. Minnie and a brother from a NY orphanage were sent west on an orphan train, winding up in central Illinois. They were not true orphans, as their parents were still alive and living in NYC with another daughter. Without getting into too much detail here, does any of this ring any bells on your family tree?

Hello Lynnsdaughter, Thank you for your contributions. Laura L. Curtis Foster (daughter of Asa Curtis and Hannah) is my GGgrandmother. I see in my family tree I have Asa and Hannah's information incorrect. Would it be possible to correspond and compare notes so I can update with the correct information? I look forward to your reply. Lynne

Do you have any other information on her or her husband John? Maybe a photo of the grave?
