Hello Susan,

I am trying to place my ancestor Catharine Lounsbury (b 10 Jan 1762, Marbletown, Ulster Co, NY; d 5 Jan 1841 Hector, Tompkins Co, NY) who married James Stillwell (b 17 Aug 1755, Marbletown; d 14 Apr 1836, Hector) in the Lounsbury family. That information comes from "The History of Lieutenant Nicholas Stillwell Progenitor of the Stillwell Family in America (with some notices of the family in the kingdom of Great Britain)" by John E. Stillwell, M.D. [vols 1, 2, & 4, New York City, 1929]. No parents are given for Catharine. The statement of Mrs. Helen M. Sayles on Jim Jurista's website says of Edward Lounsbury (1738-1809) that: "The children by the first wife are John, Richard, Jacob, Edward, and Catherine who married a Stillwellville, near Ithaca, N.Y."

Any information you can provide on the following questions would be very much appreciated (please includes your sources).

1. Do you have any further information on Edward Lounsbury's daughter Catharine?

2. Various sources say that Edward married first either -- Warner or Elizabeth Keator and second Jannetje DuBois. Can you verify his first wife and do you know anything further about her?

3. Do you know which son of Richard Lounsbury and Elizabeth Pennoyer married Abigail Thomas? I have seen her as the wife of Richard2 (1672-1733) and of his brother John2 (1674-1731).

Thank you in advance for your time in these matters. I would be glad to share what information I have on the family of Catharine Lounsbury and James Stillwell.
