Hi Cindy,
I have been doing research on Ontario County, NY for my portion of the Depew family and found this:
History of Ontario Co, NY, Conover & Aldrich, pub 1893, pg 58

DE PUE, Jno. (John), Hopewell, was born in Hopewell, on the farm he now owns, three miles east of Canandaigua. His father, Moses, was born in 1786 in Sussex county, NJ, where he resided many years. About 1806 he came to New York State and settled where subject now lives. The family descended from the French Huguenots. Three brothers, on account of persecutions, left France for Holland, thence to England and westward to America; settled near New York, one on the east side of the Hudson River, the others in New Jersey. They participated in the French and Indian war. One took part in the Revolution in 1776. Benjamin DE PUE lived and died in Sussex county. His wife, Ocee STUYVESANT, was a descendant of Peter STUYVESANT. These were the parents of Moses DE PUE, father of Jno. DE PUE.

This was not the Depew I needed. I am looking for a John Depew born in Ramapo town, Rockland, NY around 1799 and married to an Ann Coe. If you have anything on him I would appreciate it.
Thank you,
Darleena Ball
