I am looking for information on my gggrandfather's family. He was born about 1783 in Massachusetts and was in Williamstown about 1803 or 1804. He then moved on to NY where he bought property in Otsego County. He married Abigail Jensen about 1800. Does anyone have information on this family. I believe his father's name was also John, but cannot prove it yet. Any information or leads appreciated.

Dear Alice, Was you ancestor's name John Terry? I am searching for My ggggrandfather, Rueben E. Terry Sr., born about1775. I am not sure where he was born, but he lived in Adams MA at the time of his son Rueben Jr.'s birth. I have not had time to research any further as yet, but if there is a connection, will let you know. The only John I have is John D. Terry born Sept 3, 1852 and died 1866. He was probably born in No. Adams, MA. Get back to me if you think there is a connection. Good luck, Sharon Terry
PS John was the son of Rueben E Terry Jr. and wife Mary Diana (also called Polly)

My name is Bernard Polaski. I have recently begun searching my roots and came across your posts on John Terry. My grandmother (nee Lucy Belle Terry) was the daughter of Frederick Terry and Lucy (Hart) Terry. Frederick (born about 1873/74 in Otego, NY) was the son of James Terry and Susan (Waite) Terry. Before I saw your post, all I knew was this info and the fact that James mother, Abigail (age 87) was living with them in 1880. I believe John was James father.
Is there any more family information you would like to share?

Thank you,
Bernard J. Polaski
