Freelove Lawrence Ryther was my great, great grandmother. She was born in New Berlin, Chemung Co., NY. She died in Franklinville, Cattaraugus Co., NY. I have some paper belonging to Joseph Lawrence originally of New Berlin that were in my grandmother's possession. I can find no record of relationship, however and the earliest mention of her I can find is in the 1855 census showing her living in the household of Jeremy Ryther (Nelson's son.) She was born on 13 August 1831. I have their original marriage liscence showing they were married in Franklinville.
Please contact me with any additional information you might have regarding her mother or father.
