Re: Lydia Marie SLOCUM
From book II, by Charles E. Slocum:
Job Slocum 7 (Ebenezer6; John 5; Eliezer 4; Eliezer 3; Giles 2; Philip 1) was born in Dutches (or Washington ) County, N.Y. October 9, 1785. He married December 21, 1809, in Saratoga Co., N.Y., Lydia Bolt who was born December 26, 1789. He was buried at Wethersfield, near Kewanee, Ill. and she was buried at Fontanelle, Iowa. Children;
Lewis O. born Nov. 18, 1811 and married Katherin E. Flint.
Seth Richard born Aug. 19, 1813 and died in Missouri.
Mehitable born July 5, 1815 and died Aug. 1835.
LYDIA MARIA, born Oct 31, 1817 and died in Adair Co., Iowa.(no other info on her).
There were also 7 other children. I have the names if you want then.This info is found on pages 107-08.
The first book, by Charles E. Slocum has the complete ancestry back to Giles. Actually, it goes back to Anthony # 1, but Anthony was not the father of Giles, so that particular bit of information is wrong.
If you can afford them, I would highly recommend you purchase a copy of both books. I have left the address of the Towne Bookbindery on this forum, if you are interested in the purchase.You can also purchase 1 book at a time.
If the cost might be a factor, and you would like photocopies of the material, please contact me at my home e-mail, found by clicking on my name above.I do this free of charge providing the copies are 30 pages or less. If more than that are required, I might have to charge a very small fee, but we'll talk about that later.
I hope this helped. I had looked for a cross ref. under the name Briggs, but found nothing. Then I looked for Lydia Maria and found 3 listings of Lydia M.In checking all 3, came up with my info.
