Storrier/Lewis Scotland>NY 1860-?
Posted by: Thomas Heinze (ID *****7552) Date: October 14, 2002 at 07:58:40
  of 1914

I have been collecting information about David Storrier descendants. They are connected with Robert Grey GILMORE who immigrated from Ireland to Rochester, NY in 1837. Margaret STORRIER was wife of David STORRIER and mother of Helen Storrier GILMORE, Robert Grey GILMORE's wife. Margaret STORRIER and two grandsons R.G. Gilmore and F. Storrier are buried in Mt. Hope cemetery in Rochester. The stone was erected by her sons.

Letters were sent to Helen Storrier Gilmore (living in Kansas)in the 1880's and 1890's by several nieces and a sister-in-law, Sarah Gilmore. (Should Sarah Gilmore be a Storrier?) Two of Helen's nephews, D.L. and J.F. STORRIER, owned Onondaga Lime Stone, a quarry in Onondaga Castle, NY. There were at least ten of Sarah Storrier's children mentioned in the letters, including David (D.L.) and John(J.F.)Storrier are assumed to be the two owning the quarry. Sarah STORRIER's children were Charlie and Lottie (twins), David (D.L.), John (J.F.), George, Margaret, Mary J. (Jennie) who married James LEWIS, Harriet (Hattie) who married a(?)JAMES(?), Helen who married Tom LEWIS and Tomie. The name of Sarah's husband, a son of Margaret and David Storrier is unknown. It could have been John STORRIER b. Sep. 1815 Dundee, County Angus, Scotland.

The STORRIER family was from Dundee, County Angus, Scotland and moved to Donaghadee, County Down, Ireland about 1821. When the STORRIERS immigrated to the U.S. and how many came is currently unknown. Margaret STORRIER and at least two STORRIER sons came.

Plot 85-1/2 was owned by Charlotte Ramsey. I wish I had birth dates on Polts 10 and 85-1/2.

If anyone can help me sort out the relationships between the STORRIER and LEWIS families and Charlotte RAMSEY,etc., I would sure appreciate their help.

Take Care,
Tom Heinze
