Hello Sarah,

This may be my ancestor's line. I am descended from Maria (Mariah?) SON b. Abt. 1825 Chatham, Columbia, NY m. Samuel CURTIS b. Abt 1822 NY. I know that they were both still alive and living in Chatham as of the 1880 Census, but can't find them after that. Is there anything about them in the book?

Don, are you still researching the Sons of Chatham? Mariah and Samuel Curtis are mentioned in the Will of Moses Son.

Do you have a copy of Harold W. Heins chart?

My ancestor was Moses's daughter Jane who married John HOLVENSTOT and James ABBEY.

Hi Tom,

I'm sorry that it took me so long to answer. I don't believe that I ever saw your post for some reason. I am absolutely still researching the Sons of Chatham. Do you have a copy of Moses' will?

I don't have a copy of Harold Heins' chart.

Hi Don,

Yes I have Moses' Will. I also have Harold Hein's genealogy chart of the Son family. If you want I'd be happy to email them to you.
