FLEMING Kathy McConnell DeFoster, July 8, 1998
John FLEMING, the son of Robert, settled on the Military Tract in 1790. I do not know whether or not he received this land as bounty for his service. He brought his wife, Mary JACKSON, b. 1756, Orange county, NY, and their children to Romulus. their children are: Jesse (b. 1777), John (b. 6 Feb 1780), Robert (b. 26 Nov 1781), Mary (b. 20 Jun 1784), James (b. 28 Jan 1787), Elsie (b. 21 Jul 1791) and Samuel (b. 5 Dec 1793).
Robert and Mary remained on their property in NY until their deaths; their children, with the exception of Jesse, who died in 1795, married and eventually left for Michigan. John stayed in Seneca county until 1844, living on part of his father's farm; he served as a captain in the War of 1812. He and his wife, Susannah HARTON, settled in Albion, Michigan, where they both died.
Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.

FRANTZ Suzanne Westbrook Frantz, January 24, 2000
I am seeking the Frantz family and Singer (Dysinger) family of Seneca County. I believe these families were originally from Pennsylvania and settled in Seneca County about 1810. One branch, that of Jacob C. Frantz and his wife, Maria Singer, re-located to Niagara County, NY about 1840, and eventually settled in St. Clair County, Michigan, where they are buried. I am glad to share information. Thanks!

FROST Barbara Burnell, Sept. 24, 1999
Looking for the family of William Aaron Frost born in Seneca County New York on 10 March 1812. I do not know his parents names. Also looking for the family of Phebe Letitia Primm born in Seneca County New York on 9 April 1812. I do not know her parents names. William and Phebe were married in Seneca County in 1832. Their daughter Sarah was born in Seneca County in 1834 and their daughter Eunice was also born in Seneca County on 5 June 1835. Sarah married Elias Border and Eunice married Peter Border. Elias and Peter are brothers. Eunice died 16 September 1911 in Iowa.
William and Phebe are my great great grandparents.
