My Father is from New York, His name is Jan H. Treat. There is a cemetery in a small town called Breesport (sp) N.Y. where there are several Treats Buried, most of them so old the names are almost worn off the gravestones. It may be a clue . If not, or if you have investigated this please let me know, I only was there once about twenty years ago and recall the great amount of tombstones. I am in Texas and have not had the opportunity (or inclination)since to visit N.Y.
