Re: Lewis P. VAN LIEW & Helen Jenny HAWLEY, Cayuga Co., NY then Blair, NE

In Reply to: Lewis P. VAN LIEW & Helen Jenny HAWLEY, Cayuga Co., NY then Blair, NE by PATRICIA WELTY of 58

According to this is Lewis Post Vanliew, son of Ethanon Vanliew and Eliza Wood of Seneca Co NY.

Lewis/Louis was carpenter. He appears in the 1850 & 1860 Seneca censuses with his parents, then the 1870 Cayuga census with a Groome family, and then in the 1880 Cayuga census with wife and child. (Lots of creative spelling of the names, but he is there.)

I found them in Blair, Washington Co NE in 1900 as L P & J E VANLORE with 3 children, Maud b Dec 1880 NY, May b Nov 1882 NE, and Ross b Jun 1884 NE.

In 1910 they are in Blair as Louis P & Jennie VANLON with only daughter Maude B.

From NEgenweb > Washington > Cemeteries:
Lewis P Van Liew 1846 - 1916
Jennie E Van Liew 1850 - 1913
Blair Cemetery, Block 86, Lot 6

From WWI Draft registraions:
Ross G Vanliew b 19 Jun 1884, Washington Co NE

From NE censuses:
Ross G Vanliew, wife Tressa, son Clyde

From 1930 CA census:
Maude B Vanliew b NY, working as housekeeper

From CA Death Index:
Maude B Vanliew b 16 Jan 1880 NY d 14 Oct 1960, mother's maiden name Hawley
Ross G Vanliew b 16 Jun 1884 NE d 22 Jan 1971
Tressa E Vanliew b 7 Oct 1885 NE d 12 Jun 1958, father's name Mehrens, mother Piper
Clyde R Vanliew b 7 Sep 1909 NE d 30 Jan 2000

This is not my family - I am researching John Vanliew, son of Daniel & Caroline Vanliew of Cayuga Co NY, for a friend. I suspect Daniel and Ethanon might be brothers.
