My great-great great grandmother was Mary Ella DUTCHER. She was born on 8 April, 1825 in Brookfield, New York (Madison County). She married George R. Armstrong at Brookfield on 8 April, 1847. Mary Ella and George had at least 4 children. She died at Brookfield on 26 June 1857. George later remarried.
Mary Ella was one of four children born to Peter and Nancy CHESEBROUGH DUTCHER. Peter was born in New York State on 5 january 1800 and married Nancy on September 23, 1821 in Madison County, NY. Peter died on February 21, 1826. Nancy later remarried.That is all I have on the Dutcher line, but I would love to know more.
