BARRETT Larry Milligan, Oct. 10, 1998
I am looking for descendants and information of my earliest known ancestor Cyrus BARRETT. Cyrus was born in 1797 at Seneca Falls, Seneca Co, NY. He married a Susannah from PA and had three children. With his family, Cyrus returned to NY, probably to Seneca Co. Here Cyrus and Susannah had three more children. The family then migrated to Ohio sometime before 1843. Cyrus was the first settler of Madison Twp, Williams Co, OH. Here in Northwestern Ohio, Cyrus played a large role in this new twp. He, as well as his oldest son Cyrus, and Elias (probably brother to the elder Cyrus) were some of the first elected officers of Madison Twp. in 1843. In 1858 both Cyrus and Susannah passed away and were buried in the BARRETT Cemetery which Cyrus had purchased in the 1830's. If anyone who is researching Seneca County, NY knows of this family, or is a descendant of this family. Please reply...
