Thanks for the response - I didn't think it would be an easy task to determine the right Samuel.

My interest is really more with Narcissa Hutchinson Beers than with Samuel (guess I should have said that from the beginning). In 1850 & 1860 US Census and 1855 NY Census, Narcissa Beers is listed as operating a boarding house in Syracuse, NY. My gr-gr-grandparents, David Woolsey and Harriet Woolcot Woolsey apparently lived with her ca 1850-1857. In the 1855 NY Census, David & Harriet are listed as Narcissa's cousins and I’m trying to figure out how they were related. David's brother Hiram and Harriet's sister Lavinia Castle were also living with her in 1855 but oddly they are both listed as boarders rather than cousins.

I don't know for certain that Narcissa is a Hutchinson - I'm going by Descendants of Anthony Beers (Regan, vol 4, 1982): ""EDWIN, b. 1790-1800; d. possibly in Onandaga Co., NY 1830-1840; m. NARCISSA HUTCHINSON of Tully, Onandaga Co., b. 1790-1800. Information received indicates that Edwin of Tully and wife Narcissa sold land in Onan. Co. 26 Oct. 1825 which he had purchased 18 Mar. 1823, that an Edwin Beers, Jr. was mentioned in a land record of 1836, and that a Narcissa Beers of Syracuse, Onan. Co. purchased land 25 Apr. 1850, but these records have not been seen. Census records indicate this couple had at least 2 sons and 2 daus., b.c. 1810-1830, but their names are not known. A Mrs. Narcissa Beers of Syracuse was m. in Amsterdam, Montgomery Co., NY 4 Sep. 1860 to Samuel Voorhees, M.D. She may have been Edwin's widow." From Onondaga records I've just reviewed, this info seems correct, but I haven't found anything yet for Dr. Voorhees and Narcissa past Sep. 1860.

As for Dr. Hutchinson, I found the following in the book Revolutionary soldiers resident or dying in Onondaga County (Beauchamp, 1913): "Doct. Samuel Hutchinson, | Died | Nov. 23, 1846, | in the 83d Y'r of his age. | For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ | shall all be made alive. | Tully cemetery. He is locally reported as a Revolutionary soldier, probably serving from Vermont, but the name appears five times in Mass., and was frequent in 1790.." I don't know how reliable the report was - NSDAR doesn't seem to have anything to corraborate this.

I'll keep the message board posted as I make progress.

Thanks again. Charlie
