William B. TOPPING (1807-1891) and Eunice CLARK (1813-1889), my ancestors, lived at Homer, Cortland Co., N.Y., as young people and married there on Jan. 5, 1835. I do not know Eunice's parents' names and am wondering what is the best way for me to find a record of their marriage. Any advice welcome.

They and their children left Homer in 1861, ending up at Waupaca, Wis. I would be happy to transcribe their obituaries for the Cortland site if it is of interest, or share with others interested in this line.

I am researching Samuel GOODRICH, Revolutionary Patriot, and his wife, Luarana (TROWBRIDGE) GOODRICH, he died on 31 January 1838 and his wife the following day, they are buried in Rural Cemetery, Cortland. It appears they had 11 children, the 1790 Census shows them in Stephentown, NY with three boys and three girls under 16. At least two more children were born before the family moved to Preble, NY as part of the Bounty land. The last two daughters, Abiail and Permelia, were born in Preble. I am searching for Samuel's obituaray, a will or a land grant that will show that Luarana GOODRICH, born abt. 1779, was the daughter of this couple. Luarana GOODRICH married John BARTLETT and the 1830 Census shows them living in Oppenheim, NY.
Would greatly welcome any information you can provide on this family.

Robert S. GALT is listed as residing in Homer in the federal census of 1860. He was a physician and moved to Syracuse around 1867. He is listed with his wife Louise and three children Emma, Joseph, and Eleanor (Ella). Ella was born in 1854 in NY (perhaps even in Homer), and she went away to medical school in Philadelphia and may have practiced medicine in Cortland around 1879-80.
I would like to know more about the GALT family's residence in Homer or Cortland, and am wondering if they might be buried in a local cemetery.
Eleanor is my real interest; she was quite an important figure in the early history of Miami, Florida and had an interesting but short career as an anatomist researcher.

Would be interested in hearing from anyone descended from Baptist minister Rev. S. G. (Stephen G.) JONES and his wife Sally Ann. They briefly lived in Peterboro, Madison Co., NY, in the early 1850s, where Stephen delivered a eulogy for the wife of a fugitive slave. This eulogy was printed in Frederick Douglass' paper on Nov. 6, 1851. Would like to know more about the churches Rev. JONES served, etc., etc.
(I am not a descendant.) I do know that the Rev. and his wife are buried in the Virgil Rural Cemetery.

I am seeking death information on Russell C. NEFF, son of Luther and Jane, born 1834. His wife, Mary WILCOX, d/o Benjamin and Harriet, was born 1837 at Cuyler. They married at Union Valley in 1853 and relocated about 1857 to Kenosha County, WI. Children were Reuben, William, Julia Ann, Malvina, Edward and Mortimer.
Can anyone help me? There is no record of his death that I can find here.
