Searching for relatives of my Jacob Conklin who moved to the El River area from Owego, NY in mid 1830s. Jacob's family married members of the following Fort Wayne families in subsequent years:
Chauncey Stanley W.L Thompson M. P. Hand Roxy Drake
I am researching my direct CONKLIN line back to Jacob's father James Conklin from Orange/Rockland County NY. With the exception of my GGGF Walter Conklin, who moved to PA, most of Jacob's other family members moved to the Ft. Wayne area. It is possible that Jacob's decendents in Indiana have documentation pertaining to Jacob's birthplace, etc. There has been data published in the DAR Magazine in two issues from a Jacob Conklin Bible, so someone out there has more information about his family. I can provide additional information on this Conklin line to interested "cousins".
