Lyman Burch in Missouri from New York State
There was a Lyman Burch who died in Missouri (1890's?) married to Amelia Church. Does anyone know who his parents were? He was born in New York State somewhere.
Any chance he was a brother to Edmund Burch and Albert G. Burch who were from Otsego County, NYS?(I found Albert and Edmund together on the 1860 census in Jasper County, Missouri which is where Lyman lived).
This is what I know- I am trying to backtrack some of these individuals and families:
Old publications state that Jeremiah Burch was an old settler at Unadilla. Also states that one of his grandsons is Albert G. Burch, and another publication states names of two brothers to Albert G. were Lyman and Edmund. Albert G. and Edmund are together on the 1860 census at Jasper County, Missouri.
Same old publications state that AMY BURCH who was married to Seth Scott (lived at Unadilla, Otsego County, NYS and died in Oswego County) was their AUNT. Therefore we can deduce that whoever the father was for these three men: Albert, Edmund and Lyman...he was Amy Burch Scott's brother.
Albert G. was born about 1820, Edmund about 1828. Their parents then must have been born in 1790-1800 time frame. Grandfather Jeremiah Burch would have been born 1760-1770 time frame. I have a theory that this Jeremiah came from CT, Rhode Island or Pennsylvania...was possibly at Wyoming Massacre; wife was Margaret Keech, POSSIBLE children: Jeremiah junior married to Barsheba Allen, Sarah Burch married to Israel Keech and if so, possibility she was married to her first cousin, Amy (Mrs. Seth Scott), Robinson Burch, Joseph Burch married to Polly Crouch, Nehemiah Burch married to Eleanor Crouch (his second wife)...
Anyone with info please post here or write to me directly.
