Need info on WILLIAM WILLISTON STERRY B. NY State 1816/22. Traveled Erie canal from Albany to Syracuse in 1825 with parents and two sibs-he being the middle. William left for middle Tn. in 1846- alone. No deeds, wills, etc. in Syracuse.The family settled in Onon. Hollow I think. I have never been able to locate any info on family. William did write a letter to the Syr. newspaper 50 years later re: his life in Syr. Copy in hist. soc.The whole family just couldn't have vanished. Williston name poss. from W Springfield, Ma. No connection found their either. There were Willistons in Syr. at the time Wm. and family arrived.
