I've just started to research my gggrandmother Mary (Lounsberry) Bailey b. 1832 in NY d. 1899 in Furnas Co., NE and found out from this fabulous genealogy forum that all Lounsberry's in America are descendents of Ricard and Elizabeth Pennoyer.It gives me some hope because all I know about my Mary now is: Her parents were born in NY too.She married Abraham Bailey c. 1854 in NY because my ggrandmother Dora (Bailey) Hewitt was also born in NY 18 Nov 1855.Mary is sometimes referred to as Mary Ann, but Mary M. is on her tombstone.Her name is spelled Lonsberry sometimes.Her daughter Dora was also known as Dorcas.I've noticed this name on the Lounsberry trees.
So I'm hoping some of you knowledgable Lounsberry's like Susan or Art or ? will be able to help me.I've checked out Susan's website and Jim's Lounsberry homepage and didn't find anything that might be my Mary.
I appreciate any help you might give me. Elaine Van Dien
