In Reply to: Losee, 1700's, New York by Ralph Nye of 235

My grandmother's family were Losee's from Dutchess County, New York. I have done some genealogical research regarding them and have uncovered references to a connection to the Harris family. My great, great, great grandfather was Harris Losee, b. 9/21/1809 & d. 9/14/1882 who was a farmer/drover in Mabettsville, New York. His father was William Losee, b. 1787 & d. 7/9/1854 who married Polly Mary Waterman b. 1787 & d. 7/9/1854. I believe the family came to Dutchess County in 1824. Subsequently, there is record of Harris Losee buying land from John Mabett in 1857. In Harris' obituary he is indicated as being named after his great grandfather; Captain Harris of Lagrange, New York who served in the Revolutionary War. A reference is made to an article in the History of Dutchess County; page 452. Dutchess County has an extensive genealogical segment of their website, you may want to view that site. Harris Losee is buried in the Nine Partners' Lane cemetery in Millbrook, New York. If you need any additional information please let me know. Chris
