Re: Ancestors of John A. Winchell, Catskills, NY
I believed I had found my great grandfather once I figured how to utilize the 1880 Federal Census.My great grandfather, John A. Winchell, was born 1870 in Great Barrington, Berkshire, Mass. in 1870 to John Winchell and Winnifred Winchell.They had these children listed in the census:
John A. apparantly relocated to Shokan NY where he married a Minnie May Merrihew in 1889.They had two sons:
Lawrence is my Grandfather who married an Irma Burgher, also from Shokan, NY.Irma has 5 other brothers and sisters that match our family history.Both the Burghers and the Merrihews were in Shokan the same time as John A. although I cannot find any information on Minnie May Merrihew without subscribing to some of the services.
