Re: Stephen Y. Weatherwax 1815-?
Robert I have been playing around with your Sanford Wx. Already had him and his children. When I saw your note today on his father being a Stephen I started looking
I found a:
Stephen Y. Weatherwax/Weatherwax b: 1815 NY
(note m.i. "Y" found USC 1870)
he married 1st:
Louisa (unknown maiden name) b:1832 NY,d:before 1880.
known children are:
1.Sanford B. Wx b:1852
2.Theodore Wx b:1865
3.Fidelia Wx b:1867
he married 2nd
Mary E. Lusk b:1857 Canada
no known children
This marriage and her siblings and father appear in the
USC 1880,Flint,Genesee,MI,pg 153D. He is listed as 65yrs and evidently had no children by wife #2.
I do have more on Stephens 3 children anddescendants.
I'm still trying to link him back to a NY family.
There were some Yates/Wx marriages I will see if that is a possibility.
I found it helps when searching for this family group to search for Theodore,Fidelia etc. for some reason Sanford and Stephen didn't always come up on the search engines.
Like several other Weatherwax's we are trying to connect into various lines before 1850 it is often more difficult.
You might check anyone in Sanfords family for a family bible or papers or pictures etc.
