FORSYTHE, TRUEHART posted by Steve Condarcure on Thursday, April 15, 1999

I am looking for information on my great grandmother, Salina TRUEHART. We have no records in the family about her except that she married Harry FORSYTHE in Easthampton, Mass. On the marriage cert. it states only that she was born in New York State (probably about 1870). I found a Selena TRUEHART in the Soc. Sec. records born 1884 in Derby, NY, so I suspect that my Salina TRUEHART was born in this area. Also a family tradition that she was an American Indian. Also..I found a Christopher TRUEHART who had a child in Easthampton, Mass; the mother being 'Salina'. Could these be my grandmother's parents? If so they probably came from NY. Any help with information on her and her family would be appreciated.

KIRKPATRICK, LONG posted by Lynn Rudberg on Sunday, April 18, 1999

Searching for the elusive Samuel or Stephen Dennis LONG, born February 15, 1837. The family story is that he was born in 'Wales' (I have reason to believe around the Wales area in Erie County.) His parents died when he was about 12 years of age leaving him and 2 sisters. Supposedly he was somewhat of a black sheep--and may have even changed his name. He married Mary Anna KIRKPATRICK in Machias, NY on April 21, 1857 and had at least one child there, Mary Jane, born January 5, 1858 They moved to Illinois and settled for awhile in Aurora IL and then moved to Will County IL. He has been impossible to track and I would appreciate any advice or help.
