I am seeking information/records on 2 of my earliest known American ancestors.
My G3Gf Willard Doty, was born in Dutchess County.He married Elizabeth Plaas, and their son Cornelius (see below) was still in Dutchess County in 1850.
My G5? Uncle William Plaas (b.1784/5) was a farmer in Red Hook (Dutchess County NY) at the time of the 1850 Census. Living with him were his wife, Maria (b.1789/90), and their 2 sons, Peter (b.1819/20) and Adam (b. 1826/27).
Also living on that farm was my G3Gfather Cornelius Doty (2/1876-1/1904) and his recent bride Elizabeth Glass(1830-3/1914).
