Sorry, wish I had the same names in my DUTCHER line then maybe I'd be able to trace my GGreat grandfather John back to his father. They came from Dutchess Co. NY to Seneca Co. NY about 1830. His wife was Catherine ______. They had 14 children and almost all were born in Dutchess Co. I estimated John and Catherine were married about 1816 and the first child was born about 1818.
Sun, 5 Oct 1997
According to information I have found and some supplied by Dorothy and Walter Howley, my great great great grandfather was John Dutcher, Sr, born Abt 1792, married to Catherine Abt 1817. They had 14 children, at least two of whom were born in Dutchess County, NY: Erastus Dutcher Abt 1820 and John Dutcher, Jr, 25 February 1822. I do not know all the names but they include Emeline, Hiram, Rachael, Alexis, Thompson and Theodore.
John, Jr married Freelove Ann Sweet 5 July 1841 in Tyre, NY. They had 11 children, including John Franklin Dutcher. Then on to Clarence John Dutcher, Carl Lewis Dutcher and at last to me.
I hoped your research of Dutchess County might lead to some additional information related to some of my family.

He suffered from aphonia, rheumatism, asthma, and heart disease, and was declared to have total disability in 1904.
In the 1895 Business Directory for the town of Varick William had a 104 acre farm, with 9 horses, 4 dairy cows, 12 head of cattle and a 6 acre orchard. They were unfortunate and lost their property, and subsequently lived with their sons.
