Thanks for your explanation of the Losee name.I've had a hard time trying to make Losee out of Zeeuw.My gggggrand- mother's maiden name was Charity Losee.She married Joseph Ketcham II about 1755-60 probably in Dutchess Co.Their children were Stephen, Betsy, Isaac, Samuel. Losee (my ggg grandfather), Polly, Eli, Timothy, Mercy.Do any of these nams ring a bell in your family?
In Seversmith's notebook #3, he lists a Charity Loyse, b. 1724, as having married Timothy Titus.It has been sug- gested that Joseph was a second marriage.I have found nothing to confirm this. Can You help?
