I am researching early Dean families of New York, especially the Quaker families. PETER LOSSING , Garret Birt ( Burtis ) Enoch Dorland, LAWRENCE DEAN were all witnesses at the wedding of John Lossing and Miriam Dorland at Oswego on 1 23 month 1793 as per Josephine Frost's Book on Nine Partners Marriages.
Garret Burtis , Josiah Bull Junior, and Daniel Haight were witnesses and neighbours of Ichabod Bowerman according to Ichabod Bowerman's will.
From Settlers of Beekman Patent, 20 Feb f1788 until 10 May 1791 in the Minutes of Nine Partners Meetings, there were references concerning building a new QuakerMeetings House at Oswego. on 26 11 month 1789, a committee to begin collecting materials for the building included Jonathon Clark, Joseph Hoxie, Lodowich Hoxie, GARRET BURTIS and LAWRENCE DEAN. Tripp Mosher, Enoch Dorland were to assist the Trustees in planning the house. The building was completed by May 1791.
