In a few minutes, I'll send out personal invitations to the subscribers of this list who wish to join the new group will be able to do so. I can not add members directly. It should be a link you can click that will let you 'accept' the invitation to join the new group. You may need to check your spam folder as I can't say when such will be delivered. If you don't find an invitation in your email yo may also go to this site - https://groups.io/g/NEW-YORK-MILITARY and select Join Group. Of course, folks may still post to this list through 3/1.

    1. [NY-MILITARY] Early NY Military Records & Major Calvin Morley
    2. Growing A Tree
    3. Hi there folks! Perhaps you can inspire some new insights......  I have a marriage announcement from Upstate NY (Chenango county) that reads 7 Mar 1824 - Oxford Gazette "Maj. Calvin Morley m 3/7/24 Sibley Evans in Bainbridge by Elder Chapin." Another source (The Bixby Genealogy) names him as "Calvin Morely" and indicates that they had no children. I cannot find ANYTHING on this guy!  I find plenty of documents relating to his nephew Calvin E. Morley (b abt 1818) and a grand-nephew Calvin Edson Morley (1843-1916).  His wife's name is Sibyl Evans, daughter of Henry Evans, Jr. and grand-daughter of Major Henry Evans, Sr.   Sibyl was born 21 Oct 1804 and died 30 Jan 1890.  From 1850 on, she is not living with Calvin. In fact, aside from the marriage announcement I have NOTHING else which documents them together. Instead, Sibyl Morley and a Phebe Evans (who appears to be her niece) are always living together, bouncing between the homes of various family members (Sibyl's sisters and nephews).  She's lived everywhere from Bainbridge, Chenango County, NY to Tompkins, Delaware County, New York to Sandford, Broome, New York.  Sibyl is listed as a tailor and the 1880 Census indicates that she's a widow.  She's buried at St Peter's Episcopal Cemetery (Evans family Lot): Inscription reads "Wife of Calvin Morley." Sibyl's sister Maria (Evans) Jacobs and her husband Orren Jacobs are also buried here, as is Phebe Evans and other members of the Evans family. Calvin is not buried with her. I've looked for military records to no avail.... pension records.... death records....... No luck so far.  I've tried ancestry, FamilySearch and Fold3, along with a variety of books.  I have sent off for any wills or probate records from Chenango County, but I have nothing to really suggest that Calvin would have had a will there.  There are Morley's in Chenango County and other places in Central NY, but I have nothing to tie Calvin to them; and not all of the Morley's are related -- some are distant cousins with a common ancestor many generations removed. I appreciate any suggestions you might have for other sources I might search. Debbie

    1. [NY-MILITARY] NY Army Guard Records Prior to WWII
    2. David Stroebel
    3. Hello, Before my uncle enlisted in the regular Army in 1943 he was a member of the New York National Guard. It is presumed that since he grew up and lived his entire life in Jersey City, New Jersey that he was a member of an Army Guard unit in New York City. Would anyone know specifically where his Army Guard military records are housed? I have his DD215 from WWII and it does not mention his Guard service. Thank you all, David

    1. [NY-MILITARY] Revolutionary Onondaga Commissioners Report?
    2. IvanNichols
    3. Hi group, I have a reference to something called the Onondaga Commissioners' Report and Im wondering if anyone knows what this was and where I could find a copy of it? Im sure its paraphrased but the reference says this: Onondaga Commissioners Report, Homer, 95: "William Bassett. He entered the Army 21 November, 1776 at Long Island, NY, killed in service. He left no descendants. His father Joshua still lives. He left three brothers Cornelius (eldest) Joshua and Isaac. Also 5 sisters Abigail (wife of Samuel Nichols) Martha, Pure, Zelpha and Mary. These sisters are married but the Commissioners do not know whom to". Id also be grateful for any help locating any additional service information about William....a muster roll, age at enlistment,place and date of death etc. Thank you! Ivan Nichols

    1. Re: [NY-MILITARY] Using your website
    2. Bradford H Miter
    3. George, I assume that this is your first experience with the mail lists at Rootsweb.com. I is now owned by Ancestry and there are many, many individual lists. They primarily are for communication between users. A newcomer usually is interested in asking questions pertaining to the subject they propose. But, each list has an Archive going back many years, in some cases. It is normally accessed via the home page for the list which I assume you found (and yes getting signed up for a list is over-complicated). For your convenience I have worked out a URL to get you to the archive for NY-Military - http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/index?list=ny-military It is suggested for speed that you first search the subject lines as a search of the bodies of the messages can take a lot of time. I am not the Administrator of this list and it is rather inactive at this time but the archive exists.
