Current Research February 2013

John Clark (1740-1818) born Bedford, Westchester county, NY and died in Cayuga county, NY: I am searching online for information relating to Abel, Jabez, and Jonathan; John's brothers who stayed in Bedford or Poundridge when John and other family members migrated to Saratoga county ca. 1792. All three brothers had children according to the census record. It appears they lived, and had farms, in the area south of Cross River and near the town line between Bedford and Poundridge. An index search for deeds does not reveal information for these three brothers. Very few gravestones have survived from this era (1750-1850) and no leads have been generated from cemetery information. I plan to build a profile of each family and then comb records for possible leads.
