|I am reseaching the McDowell, Buchanan, Hallock, and Weber families. After leaving their European homelands, all the families settled in the tri-state region of New York, Pennsylvannia, and New Jersey, in or near Orange County, New York.|
The McDowell family is believed to have originated in Scotland, moved to Ireland, then the United States. The Hallock family originated in England. They first settled on Long Island in the mid 1600's, then ventured to western New York. The Weber family is believed to have originated in Germany.
Any information about these families would be greatly appreciated and I will share any information I have.
