Hi! While looking for any input on my g-grandfather's second wife, Mary Phylenah Kator, I came across your posting & felt I should let you know that Esopus is the township next to Kingston (across the Rondout, I believe).The town clerk is located in the village of Port Ewen.
Phylenah (as she was called) married David Horton Polhamus in about 1892.(His first wife died in 1891.)David was born & raised in Esopus.Phylenah was born 9-1-1850 & died 1-28-1916, at age 65.(This information is from her tombstone in Lloyd Cemetery, where they're both buried.)
