Terri, I am a direct descendant of Sylvester Haight who was born October 6, 1809 in Mt. Pleasant,Ulster County,New York. He married Emaline/Emeline C. Unknown about 1828-1830 in Madison County,New York. They had three children- Augusta Haight, Helen Haight,and Hiram Haight. Sylvester Haight left New York in 1855 and went to Wyoming,Jones County,Iowa. He is on the 1856 Jones County,Iowa Census, and 1860 Census in Jones County,Iowa. Sylvester died June 26, 1869 in Jones County,Iowa and is buried at Cady's , Pleasant Ridge Cemetery with his son Hiram Haight. His headstone is moldy and difficult to read, but Joanne Wilken from the Jones County Historical Society took a picture of it and verified the information. I have documentation, and pictures of Sylvester's spouse, Emaline Unknown maiden name and daughter,Helen Haight-Crone, and obituaries for his spouse ,daughter Augusta Haight-Woodard,and Helen Haight-Crone.Please contact me if you would like any of this data. Thanks,Marian
