Amanda Rosencrans & Samuel B Joslyn-Genesee Co, Batavia, NY
From the Rosenkrans genealogy book:
"333. AMANDA ROSENKRANS, daughter of John D. (129), was born in Orange County, New York, December 12, 1814, and at Batavia, New York, married Samuel B. JOSLYN, a gunsmith of that place. As stated elsewhere, she has furnished most of the information concerning the descendants of her father, John D. Rosenkrans. In a letter, August 3, 1993, 111 Bank Street, Batavia, she says that she was only four years of age when her father went from Orange County to Batavia; that she and her husband lived for a time at Youngstown, where her uncle Daniel (131), of Ohio, once visited them. She said also that her cousin Lorin from Ohio, son of Josiah, once visited them at her father’s house, while on his route to New Jersey. She has no children and at last account was still living at Batavia."
Would someone be able be to explain this newspaper account giving Amanda's father as PASSMORE?:
