Williams and Church Families
Posted by: Charles McKelvey (ID *****0882) Date: November 11, 2008 at 21:27:00

I am searching for any information on the families of WILLIAMS and CHURCH of Onondaga County.
My 3rd g-grandfather, Hiram Church (ca. 1809-?) married Lorinda Williams (ca. 1805-1830). She died in childbirth January 1830, at the birth of Lorinda Church Somers(1830-1904). He then married Lorinda Williams' twin sister, Lucinda Church (ca. 1805-1842). Children of this marriage were: Lucinda Church (ca. 1831-1903), Ralph Church (ca. 1833-1903), and Sheldon Church (1841-1842). Hiram Church left Onondaga County and moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1849. Lorinda Williams Church, Lucinda Williams Church, and Sheldon Church are buried in the Messina Springs Cemetery. At one time there was a photo of Lorinda's headstone posted on the web, but it is no longer available.
According to a previous post (3-13-1999) on this forum Lorinda and Lucinda Williams are the daughters of Job Williams, but I have found nothing to corroborate this. Hiram Church is somehow connected to George Church (1786-1862) and Thomas Church (1773-1859), but again have not found anything to verify the connection.
Any help with these families is appreciated. If possible I would also like to get photos of any Church/Williams headstones in the Messina Springs Cemetery. Thank you in advance.
