Re: gen obadiah german/ Walter GERMAN
When I get a chance, I'll see what I can find about James.If I find anything definitive, I'll let you know.
At this point, my only Chenango Co connections are the German family.I am a descendent of Maria & Rev Harmon (he was a Virginian).They settled in Onondaga Co where I have bunches of folks; also some from Cortland Co.I am looking for a marriage record for Maria & Rev. Harmon.I can place Rev Harmon in Norwich, Chenango Co, in 1818.It is very likely they were married there.
I am looking for of where Obadiah got the title "General".There are many tales, most of which say it was a Rev War title, but this cannot be possible.Obadiah was only ten years old at the outbreak of the war.I found a reference to him having served in the War of 1812, but I want corroberation of that (and the title).
Thanks for the info on Silas, brother of Obadiah, as being the one I have the marriage record for.
