#13 Margaret Elizabeth Gillies is my paternal 3rd g-grandmother. I also have an 1850 map showing the location of her brother D.G. Gillies in Elbridge, Onondaga, New York, just down the rod from Margaret's husband Alden Asher Campbell. My maternal lines are all from Dutchess county as well and I can say Staatsburg is definitely located there.
I'm curious if your deed actually states Sarah Whitehead and not Sarah Whitehand? That would be interesting to know?
Is there an image online of the deed spmewhere?
