Re: looking for ny sturdevant
I am very interested in the ancestry of William Sturdevant and Catherine Gordon.Those Loyalist families so often originate in a long line New England families, but we just lose them for a generation or so.
I have no parents names for William Sturdevant and only Robert Gordon and Elizabeth Emery as the names of Catherine's parents.I would appreciate any help you can give.We descend through Cornelius' son Henry who married Susan Schug (another mystery)
Sources list Cornelius' wife as Almira Lee or Orpha Baillie, but I'm wondering if the real name is Bailey?I have seen it written both ways during that time period.What do you think?
Upstate New York and Canada in the first generation or two after the Revolutionary War have poor records...often very hard to connect these folks.
