I am searching for the family of Maria Lounsbury.Her daughter Charlotte was born 6/16/1833, lived in Peekskill, NY for most of her life, and died there 4/24/1909.I have been collecting data on the various Lounsbury/Lounsberry/etc. families in that area at the time.
I have not come across Isaac Drake Lounsbury. But here is some info that may be of interest:
From Freund's book 'Some Decendants of Richard Lounsbury of Rye NY': #3030Isaac Lounsbury b____ Mamekating, Sullivan Co., NY child #2 of #3020 James Lounsbury and Bethia DRAKE
# 3020 James b. Dec.,1787 PEEKSKILL, NYd. 1856 Marlbourough, NY m 1. ca 1815 NY - Bethia Drake m 2. 1827 Esopus, NY- Eliza Robinson James was child # 1 of # 3018 Epenetus Lounsbury (christn'd 1755 m. Peekskill, NY d. 1844 NY occ. tanner) and Hannah Greene grandchild of #306 Eppenetus Lounsbury b: 1716and Elizabeth Finch gr-grandchild of Henry Lounsbury b. and Mercy Scofield
The connection of Isaac's mother being a Drake and his father and grandfather being born in Peekskill may be worth checking out!
******************* John Lounsbury b:1782 d: 1862. . .farmer; Butcher in Peekskill and his wife had a lot of kids born in Peekskill between 1808 and 1827 (no Isaac).John did have two younger brothers named Isaac.I don't know anythingabout these brothers except that one is of the right place and age to be a possible father to yours.The other probably died young.They were sons ofNehemiah Lounsbury, d: 1805 in Yorktown Sarah Haight b: ca 1755
I have a lot of Peekskill Lounsbury's on line at http://home.att.net/~jg245/lounsbry.htm All of my possible Maria/Mary 's are in caps.
