I'm not related to these families, but a descendant with no computer has asked me to locate additional information on the descendants of Peter Ostrander b. 14 May 1796, and his wife, Maria Lamoreau, b. about 1819 in Albany County, NY. They resided in the towns of Jewett and Lexington, Greene County, NY.
