Re: Searching for Family in Broome CO. and sur. areas

Hi Jen,

I descend from the the McClures that settled the Sanford area in 1787, called McClure Settlement. William MacClure was the pioneer of much of Broome County and Tioga county, he was born 1725 in NH & married Sarah Farnham b. 1769 Preston, New London, Ct, she was the daughter of Eliab Farnham and Abigail Killam in Goshen, Orange, NY 1791. She died in 1807 at McClure Settlement, Broome, NY giving birth to the 9th child. William took for his second wife Lydia Austin b. 1759 Suffield, Hartford, Connecticut. She died 1834 at McClure Settlement, Broome, NY.

I of course know about your Nathan Austin, but I don't know if he is related to Lydia. Nathan's parents are Benjamin Austin and Susanna Burdick. And as far as I know Lydia is not a daughter of them. It is not certain, but Lydia is most likely the daughter of Calib Austin and Phebe King.

As for my Luscomb connection, A son of William (above) named Alexander b. 1805 in Sanford, Broome, NY d. 1887 in Barrington, Cook, ILL, and married Elizabeth Luscomb. We know she went to Ill with Alexander, and they got married in Sanford in 1834, so we know she is of the Sanford Luscombs, but don't know who her parents are. There are some Luscombs buried in the McClure Cemetery in McClure, and I assume they are connected, but no proof as yet.

I have lots more on the Farnhams, and more on the Austins, and very little on the Luscombs. If you want to contact me via e-mail we might pass on a new fact or two. Of course I have tons on the McClures.
