Dear Ms. Becker,
I just came across your posting of the gravesite of Orilla Wilson Wright at the Prospect Hill Cemetery in Sidney, Delaware County, NY.  Your notes mention that Orilla and her husband had, among others, a son, Harry.  I would like to know more about him, because I am wondering if he is the same Harry Wright that I have been looking for.  The Harry Wright who married into my family was born around 1840 and died after 1880.  He was married to  Phebe Ella Colton about 1860 and they had 4 sons: William, Chester, Dexter, and Francis "Frank."  They lived in Unadilla (1870 Census) and Bainbridge (1880 Census).  The fact that Frank named one of his daughters Orilla makes me wonder if there is indeed a connection.  Does any of this sound familiar to you?  I would very much appreciate hearing from you and would be happy to exchange information if you desire.
Sincerely,
Deb. Rittmeyer

MICHAEL WILLIAMSON
ORIGIN:
MIGRATION: 1635 on the Defenseon 2 April 1635, "Michell Will[ia]mson," aged 30, servant to George Giddings, was enrolled at London as a passenger for New England on the Defense[Hotten 46].
FIRST RESIDENCE: Ipswich.
REMOVES:Newport by 1638, Hempstead by 1644.
OCCUPATION:Locksmith[Lechford 302].
FREEMAN: "Michel Williamson" was included in the list of "Inhabitants admitted at the town of Nieu-Port since the 20th of the 3d, 1638 [i.e., 20 May 1638]," and , on 16 March 1640/1, "Michall Williamson" was listed on the Court Roll of Freemen for Newport[RICR 1:92, 111].
ESTATE: In a 1635 grant of Ipswich land to George Giddings, Paul [sic] Williamson was named as an abutter (the forename almost certainly incorrect either in the original or in the published version), and in another grant of the same year, to John Tuttle, Michael Williamson was named as an abutter[ITR DETAIL].
"Moyles Williams" was one of the original proprietors of Hempstead ["The Fifty Original Proprietors of Hempstead," The Nassau County Historical Society Journal 29 (1969):32].
In the summary of grants at Hempstead to "Moyles Williamson," there were five parcels of land: to "Thomas Williams," 100 acres; to "James Pine," forty-seven acres and twenty-eight rods, and another three acres; to "Joseph Smith," twenty-two acres; and to "the family of Pearsalls at Herrick's and their assigns one hundred and seventy-two acres"[HempTR 8:324].
Henry Pearsall left a will, dated 24 July 1667 and proved in March 1668, and this document was accompanied by a release in which "John Williams, Joseph Williams and Timothy Halstead ... acquit & discharge forever our late father-in-law Henry Pearsall ... from all dues or demands of houses or lands of inheritance or any other lands known by any other title soever, and all other goods & chattels whatsoever that formerly were our own father's Michael Williams deceased"[NYGBR 119:83, citing "New York Wills 1:51"].
MARRIAGE:By about 1637 Ann Pankhurst.
CHILDREN:
i Daughter WILLIAMSON, b. say 1637; m. by about 1657 Timothy Halstead[NYGBR 120:147].
ii JOHN WILLIAMSON, b. say 1639; m. about 1663 Miriam _____[NYGBR 119:133-38, and the sources cited there].
iii JOSEPH WILLIAMSON, b. say 1641; m. (probably) Phebe Wood[NYGBR 119:138-42, and the sources cited there].
ASSOCIATION:Servant of George Giddings {1635, Ipswich}[Hotten 46].
COMMENTS: On 2 October 1639, "Michael Williamson & Anne his wife make a letter of deputation & procuratorship to Anthony Stapley of Patcham in Sussex, Esq., to receive of Elizabeth Geere of Lewis [Lewes] in Sussex, widow, executrix of the last will & testament of Dennis Geere late of Saugost deceased 50lb. legacy given by him to the said Anne by the name of Anne Panckhurst"[Lechford 206].Lechford also prepared "a letter to Mrs. Geere. And a release conditional to Mr. Stapley"[Lechford 206].On 1 September 1640, "Michael Williamson of Rode Island in New England, locksmith, and Anne his wife otherwise called Anne Panckhurst releases the [said] Elizabeth Geere &c."[Lechford 302].
BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1988 Matthew Wood published a detailed and complete study of this immigrant and his children, and we have relied heavily on his account[NYGBR 119:80-84, 133-42].
According to Matthew Wood "THE FAMILY OF MOYLES WILLIAMS, ONE OF THE ORIGINAL PROPERIETORS OF HEMPSTEAD, LONG ISLAND; 1988; published by the NYG&B;
"The name "Moyles Williams" appears on a list of the oringinal proprietors of Hempstead derived from the old "Mouse Eaten Book" of town records, which is now lost. The history of Moyles and his immediate family is exceedingly obscure, due to the fact he and his sons died in med-life. There is only one other record from Long Island which refers to Moyles. In 1667 the heirs of "Michael Williams" quit-claimed their interest in the estate of Henry Pearsall who had married their widowed mother Ann. Fortunately these notices can be enriched by reference back to New England. Moyles and Ann Williams of Hempstead are clearly identical to Michael and Ann (Pankhurst) Williamson of Ipswich, Massachusetts and Newport, Rhode Island. This fact has not been brought out in previous work on the subject."

Hi Shirley, I am not sure what you are looking for, but I have an Eliza Piersall who married a David Beebe. They had at least one son named Richard Beebe who was born in Cleveland, NY in 1854 and died (1913) and was buried there also. Perhaps my Eliza (b. 1829) and your Emily were related - niece and aunt? Do you have any other info on Emily? I do know Eliza is connected to the long line of Piersall/Pearsalls from LI. You can reach me via email at Barbrewire@aol.com. Thanks! 
BEEBE, Richard (I1575)

In Reply to: Re: Theophilus & Henry by M.S. Tripp of 2211
The "other" Theophilus was the son of John 4 (Richard 3, John 2-1) & Lydia (__) Sweet. Theophilus is named in his father John's will made _ Dec 1743 at N. Kingstown RI. He was named ahead of Amos so was probably older than Amos, b c1735, by a few years. I've not tried to trace this Theo. My interest was his brother Amos 5 because of his son's connection to the Niles family.
Amos 5 married 18 Apr 1759 Elizabeth Straight at E. Greenwich RI. They moved to Stephentown,
Rensselaer Co., NY. Amos built a sawmill c1780 at Sweet Corners. His son Isaiah 6, b NK RI 14 Jul 1763,married Elizabeth Niles. Isaiah & wife Elizabeth (Niles) Sweet, and Amos 6 Sweet,Jr., moved to W. Brome, QUE, Canada. Isaiah & Elizabeth are suposedly buried at the Sweet Cem., W. Brome, QUE.

Hi Shirley,
Here are the notes that I have:

Lew Sweet says: Hannah Tanner is buried in Stephenson cemetery with her second husband, Asa Clark.

Photo of stone in Dennison cemetery says:
Hannah wife of Asa Smith
formerly wife of
Sylvester Sweet.
Also reportedly May 15, 1851 age 85.

The Dennison cemetery is on Giles rd, off of rt 22, about half way between Stephentown and Berlin. If you are coming out of Stephentown, it is on the right hand side, its a long winding farm road.

In 1850 census of Stephentown, p. 250, she is living with the Elias and Lydia Jones family, age 84 born RI. Probably her daughter.
