Dear Linda Burkell, Thanks for the information. I have a couple of follow-up questions.
I was looking up information for Stephen Hollister and Abigail Treat family and ran across the following:
Stephen Hollister the son of Capt. Stephen Hollister and Elizabeth his wife born: September the 12th day 1709; and Lazarus Hollister deceased in ye beginning of Septem Anno Domini 1709; ....(unreadable) Capt Stephen Hollister deceased at Green Bush, near Albany, of the Camp Distrember(?) on or about October 22nd 1709.
This made me curious because I have the death date for Stephen as it is above, but do not have his wife as Elizabeth..also the birth date for Stephen is not what I have...do I have the death date of a different Stephen?
Also, this entry followed and I have Jerusha as one of his children:
Jerusha Hollister had a child born on or about the last (or fifth) of May 1710 and Jerusha deceased on ye 30th of September 1710: about the 20th year of her age and the child died July 17, 1711 the child being about 13 months when it died.
If you can enlighten me I would appreciate it. Thanks Susanne Price
