Much of what I have on Daniel Thurston (son of Job) it appears you already have, though
I have considerable data on the extended families of the children of Daniel and Mary
(Polly) Edson. I only have that Polly was d/o Nathan and Mary Hall Edson and would
appreciate knowing where she was born and more details on her parents. I have heard
that the Edson line has been published but never got around to searching for it - I believe a copy of this lineage is on record at the Oneida City Library.
Most of the data that I have on Thurstons (I have 212 enumerated in my database) and
Wheelers (150) came from the research of Stewart Hyland (1904-1971), s/o Bert E.
Hyland and Blanche Mary Davis. Bert was s/o Thomas McCann Hyland and Frances
Melissa Thurston, she the d/o Hiram, brother of your Melinda who married Hibbard
Wheeler (Sr.). Stewart and I are cousins through the Hyland clan. He passed away before having a chance to publish his research, I was fortunate in that his nephew inherited his notes and passed them on to me a few years ago.
Stewart had a double connection to Thurston as his mother was d/o of Samuel Hudson
Davis and Zoetta Thurston, she also the d/o Hiram (i.e. his parents were first cousins).
Though Stewart was not directly related to the Wheelers, he abstracted most of the
Madison County census data on that family as well.
His Davis family does not appear to connect to your David or John A. as Zoetta’s husband
Samuel Hudson Davis was son of Thomas and Mary Hudson Davis both born England
1808/1809 and 1818/1819 respectively.
I did, however, find in my database one John Andrew Davis b. 1861 who resided in
Stockbridge Valley, NY. He was s/o John H. and Maria Stisser Davis, John being the son
of Joseph and Anna Eva Adle Davis of Manheim, Herkimer County, NY. You did not
state the time periods for your David and John A. Davis so not sure this connects? I have collected this data because Adle is also one of my lines.
Re: Children of Hibbard and Susan: According to my records, they also adopted a
daughter Mercy D. born 1862/63 (d/o ???) and had a son Albert N. (Bertie) born Jul 1870,
died 24 Apr 1877. I’m sure you knew about Bert but didn’t know if you had the census
data (1865 State Census) on the adopted daughter.
I did not have any data on the parents or siblings of Hibbard Wheeler (Sr.) as Stewart had only abstracted Madison County census’. Thank you for posting the data.
My PAF database contains approximately 23000 individuals, mostly of Madison, Oneida,
Herkimer and Oswego Counties. If you have WinZip, I can compress it to less than 2Mb
and it would take much less time to e-mail. My notes are extensive and contain all of the
census abstracts mentioned above. Let me know if you would like me to send it along.
From which of the children of Hibbard and Susan do you descend?
Let me know if I can be of any further help.
Elk Grove, California (formerly of Sylvan Beach, Oneida Co., NY)
