The earliest information on my own Starks ancestors is that of Benjamin Starks being born in Whitehall, NY, ca 1776. I have pretty soft information about him, there seem to have been a lot of Starks and Stark without the s in the area and Benjamin seems to be an oft-repeated name. Benjamin's son Joshua is a bit easier to track. He was born in Whitehall about 1808 and stayed around Washington County until about 1860 when he moved to Jamaica, Vermont, where he stayed until he died. There is a Daniel in his family of origiin, and I think it is another of those often-repeated names in the Starks/Stark family. If you want to share info, let me know.
