Judy,
Will you please review this rather long message as your James may be related somehow. I am "jc" mentioned in the message.

________Some Sources of Nathan Weed Information________

Posting number 1094 on the Weed Family forum at genforum.genealogy.com by jc prompted me to try to learn more about the early Weeds in my wife's lineage. In posting number 1096 on the Weed Family forum at genforum.genealogy.com I transcribed from one of her inherited papers that her ancestors include Joseph Weed, born in 1767 in an unknown location. There is also a hint in another of her papers that Joseph was the son of Nathan Weed, a Revolutionary War soldier, with missing data back to Daniel Weed, died 1697, an inn keeper in Stamford and a legislator in Connecticut in 1694.

The information from Thurlow Weed's letter "Reminiscences of Catskill" in posting number 1090 on the Weed Family forum at genforum.genealogy.com by jc is that Joseph Weed had a younger brother, Joel Weed, who died in 1818 or 1819 (forty-six years before the March 29, 1865, date of the letter) in Onondaga and was the father of Thurlow. Also from posting number 1092 on the Weed Family forum at genforum.genealogy.com by jc we learn that Thurlow believed his grandfather was Nathan Weed, a Revolutionary War veteran, who took a large family from Connecticut after the war ended to Dutchess County, across the western border of Connecticut, and then to Greene County, across the Hudson River and a little upstream from Dutchess County, both in New York. Additional detail about Thurlow is in posting number 1102 on the Weed Family forum at genforum.genealogy.com by jc.

Posting number 140 on the Weed Family forum at genforum.genealogy.com by Walker Weed outlines the problem with the usual line given for the Weed ancestry of Thurlow Weed. Both Joel and Joseph are too old to be sons of Nathan Weed, born in 1760 in Stamford, Connecticut, married Mary Scofield 3 September 1787 in Darien, Connecticut, and died 20 October 1819 in Darien.

The Nathan Weed in posting number 1094 is a good candidate for the Nathan Weed who was the father of Joseph and Joel and grandfather of Thurlow Weed. According to Virginia White-Smith his tombstone says this Nathan died 24 May 1815 at age 83. She says the tombstone is in the David Jackson Cemetery, Greene, Chenango County, New York, 2 counties west of Greene County. In her message preserved at http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/read/NYGREENE/2005-09/1127526535 she says that the tombstone was found under an old washer in the cellar of a home in Greene and put back on its base in the David Jackson cemetery. She writes that 2 of his daughters, Rebecca Weed Hayes (wife of Nathaniel Hayes, Jr.) and Lydia Weed Phillips (wife of Isaac Phillips), were buried nearby.

In posting number 1095 by jc on the Weed Family forum at genforum.genealogy.com there is a suggestion from Naomi O. that a Nathan Weed, who may or may not have been the father of Joel and Joseph, was married to Lydia and also had a daughter Rebecca Weed. She believes that Rebecca married a Hays. Naomi O.'s ancestry includes a Polly Childs who married a Daniel Kellogg. She has been informed by a researcher that Polly Childs was a sister of Joel Weed, the father of Thurlow Weed.

Putting all these pieces of information together with other bits from the same sources results in the following sketch:

________Nathan Weed (1731?-1815)________

Nathan Weed, born in 1731 or 1732, married Lydia ? sometime before 1767. He may have served as a Revolutionary War soldier.

Nathan and Lydia had a son, Joseph Weed, born 17 March 1767, who married Ruth Ann Ludington, born 19 October 1768, on 3 March 1789. This couple had Hannah Weed, born 24 February 1791, and George Ludington Weed, born 30 January 1800, both in Catskill, Greene County, New York. Hannah married John Hall on 8 March 1807. George married Eliza Huntington Lathrop in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, on 4 April 1825. Joseph died 12 April 1817 and was buried in Catskill, New York, and Ruth Ann died 2 April 1855 at Ithaca, New York, but was buried at Caroline, Tompkins County, New York, beside Hannah, who died 4 June 1842, and her husband.

Another son of Nathan and Lydia, Joel Weed, was born after 1767 and married Mary Ells. This couple had Thurlow Weed, born 15 or 17 November 1797 in Cairo, Greene County, New York; Orrin, who died in 1818; and Osborn, who died in 1851. Thurlow married Catherine Ostrander 26 April 1818 in Cooperstown, Otsego County, New York. Catherine was born about 1799. Joel died in 1818 or 1819 and Mary Ells Weed died in 1846. Thurlow described his parents as natives of Connecticut, so he may have believed they were born there.

Nathan and Lydia had a daughter, Lydia Weed, who married Isaac Phillips.

Nathan and Lydia had a daughter, Rebecca Weed, who married Nathaniel Hays, Jr.

Nathan and Lydia had a daughter who was Polly Childs when she was married in 1799 in Saratoga, New York, to Daniel Kellogg, born about 1773. This couple had Samuel Weed Kellog (Kellogg?), baptized in 1807, and Mary Weed Kellogg, born in 1816 in Gainsville, New York.

Nathan Weed died 24 May 1815 at age 83 and was buried in Greene, Chenango County, New York, in the David Jackson Cemetery.

Is this picture true? What additional evidence can be found to support or refute its details?

________Other Evidence________Nathan Weed

At the-red-thread.net there seem to be transcriptions of documents from the Church of Christ, South Salem, Westchester County, New York, with the members document containing a record of "Persons that renewed their Covenant" with a line "Aug 27, 1755 Jacob Wood & his wife" and on the next line with no date "Nathan Weed & his wife Lida[sic]." There is no entry for Nathan and Lida (Lydia?) marrying in this church in the records covering the period from its establishment in 1752 to 1806.

In the listing of "INFANTS BAPTIZED AT SOUTH SALEM CHURCH" there are records of "Nov 9, 1755 Benjamin, son of Nathan Weed;" "Mar 6, 1757 Lydia, daughter of Nathan & Lydia Weed;" "Dec 30, 1759 Abigal, daughter of Nathan Weed;" "Dec 27, 1761 Elizabeth, daughter of Nathan Weed;" "Dec 25, 1763 Rebeckah, daughter of Nathan Weed;" "June 22, 1765 Isabell, daughter of Nathan Weed;" "May 17, 1767 Joseph, son of Nathan Weed;" "Feb 19, 1769 Joannah, daughter of Nathan Weed;" and "Apr 29, 1770 Hannah, Daughter of Nathan Weed." This record covers the period 1752 to 1804 with no other Nathan Weed christenings.

In the listing of "SOUTH SALEM CHURCH DEATHS" that starts in 1767 there is an undated line in the "1769 Deaths" section "Nathan Weed's infant." The section is not in chronological order, with the line before dated "July 23, 1769" and the following line dated "Mar 22, 1769." This infant is probably Joannah Weed, christened "Feb 19, 1769." A line in the "1776 Deaths" section is "Apr 25, 1776 Nathan Weed's infant." Was this an infant not yet baptized or is the baptismal record missing? These documents suggest that Nathan Weed may have lived in Salem, Westchester County, from 1755 to 1776 at least.

There is no modern day Salem in Westchester County on my maps, although there is a Salem Center and a North Salem, both near the Connecticut border. The current Salem, New York, is in Washington County, up the Hudson River near the Vermont border. The early Westchester County does not seem to have extended up to the present day Salem. At persi.heritagequestonline.com there are a number of articles listed that promise documentation of births, marriages, and deaths in Salem, Westchester County, in the time period of interest, including some with titles including Church of Christ, Salem. None of these articles has been examined yet. The transcriptions at the-red-thread.net seem to be those same documents although they are titled from the Church of Christ, South Salem.

________Other Evidence________Benjamin, Lydia, Abigal, and Elisabeth Weed

At familysearch.org there is an individual record from the International Genealogical Index v5.0 that Benjamin Weed was christened "1755 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York" by his father Nathan Weed. There is another individual record that Lydia Weed was christened "06 MAR 1757 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York" by her father Nathan Weed and mother Lydia. There is another individual record that Abigal Weed was christened "30 DEC 1759 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York" by her father Nathan Weed. There is another individual record that Elisabeth Weed was christened "27 DEC 1761 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York" by her father Nathan Weed. There is no other information for any of these individuals. Except for the loss of the day and month of Benjamin's birthdate here these records seem to copy the transcriptions at the-red-thread.net.

________Other Evidence________Rebecca Weed

At familysearch.org there is an individual record from the International Genealogical Index v5.0 that Rebeckah Weed was christened "25 DEC 1763 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York," by her father Nathan Weed. There is no other information for either individual. This record also seems to copy the transcription at the-red-thread.net.

Also at familysearch.org there is an individual record from the Ancestral File v4.19 for a Rebecca Weed born in "1762 <Canaan Parish, Norwalk, Ct>" and died in 1826 with her burial in "Jackson Cem., Broome, Ny." This record shows her marrying Nathaniel Hayes "Abt 1785." The Family Group Record for her in Ancestral File v4.19 shows that Nathaniel Hayes was born "26 Jun 1764" in "Canaan Parish, Norwalk, Ct." His parents were Nathaniel Hayes and Elizabeth Holmes. He died "20 Mar 1838 , Chenango Co., Ny," and was buried in "Jackson Cem., Greene, Chenango, Ny." Broome is not currently a town in New York on my maps, but is a county just south of present Chenango County and the town Greene. Is there a Jackson Cemetery in Broome County where Rebecca is buried that is separate from the David Jackson Cemetery in Greene, Chenango County, where Nathaniel is buried?

The same Family Group Record shows that Nathaniel and Rebecca had 2 sons: "Levi William Hayes" born "27 Oct 1801" in "Cairo, Greene Co., Ny" and "Nathaniel Hayes" born "7 Aug 1808," possibly in the same place as Levi. Levi is shown to have died "13 Jun 1881" in "Triangle, Broome Co., Ny" and been buried in "Sylvan Lawn Cem., Greene, Chenango Co." Nathaniel, the younger, is shown to have died "5 Aug 1883" and been buried in "Jackson Cem., Greene, Chenango, Ny."

________Other Evidence________Isabell, Joseph, Joannah, Hannah, and Joel Weed

At familysearch.org there is an individual record from the International Genealogical Index v5.0 that Isabell Weed was christened "About 22 JUN 1765 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York" by her father Nathan Weed. There is another individual record that Joseph Weed was christened "17 MAY 1767 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York" by his father Nathan Weed. There is an individual record that Joannah Weed was christened "19 FEB 1769 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York" by her father Nathan Weed. There is another individual record that Hannah Weed was christened "29 APR 1770 Church Of Christ, Salem, Westchester, New York" by her father Nathan Weed. There is no other information for any of these individuals. These records seem to copy the transcriptions at the-red-thread.net.

At familysearch.org there is an individual record from the International Genealogical Index v5.0 that Joel Weed was born "About 1776 Stamford, Fairfield, Connecticut," with Nathan Weed his father. Had Nathan Weed moved back to Stamford from Westchester County for reasons related to the Revolution?

________Other Evidence________John Hall and Hannah Weed

At familysearch.org there is a Family Group Record from the International Genealogical Index v5.0 for John Hall, born in "1781 , Chenango, New York," married in "1807 <, Chenango, New York>" to Hannah Weed, born in "1791 <, Chenango, New York>." No children are shown and John's death is given as 1847 and Hannah's is given as 1842.

________Other Evidence________Polly Weed

At familysearch.org there are 3 individual records from the Pedigree Resource File for a Polly Weed, born "abt 1778" or in 1 case "abt 1781." Only in the last record is the birthplace given as "Woodstock, Windham County, Conn cticut[sic]," at the eastern end of the state. In the other records it is just ", , , USA," or ",,,USA." There are another 12 records with no birth information at all. All 15 records agree that she married William Child on "5 Feb 1820." The record with specific birthplace supplies a location for the marriage, the same "Woodstock, Windham County, Conn cticut." A single record with no birth information supplies "Woodstock, Windham County, Connecticut," as a location for the marriage.

At familysearch.org there are 8 individual records from the International Genealogical Index v5.0 for Polly Weed with spouse William Child. There are birth years for Polly from 1777 to 1781 or blank and birth places ", , Usa;" ", Saratoga, New York;" "Canaan, Columbia, New York;" "Woodstock, Windham, Connecticut;" or blank. Canaan is a town on my modern map of Columbia County, New York, just west of the Massachusetts border and Pittsfield. One record has no date or location for the marriage; two records place the marriage in about 1800 in ", Saratoga, New York;" one places it in about 1802 in "Woodstock, Windham, Connecticut;" and the rest have "5 FEB 1820" in "<, , Usa>;" "Canaan, Columbia, New York;" ", , Connecticut;" or "Woodstock, Windham, Connecticut." Only one record with the marriage in 1800 has a Family Group record that lists a single child, Faber Child, born "About 1810 , Saratoga, New York."

At familysearch.org there is an individual record from the Ancestral File v4.19 for a Polly Weed born "Abt 1777 Woodstock, Windham, Connecticut" and married to William Child on "5 Feb 1820 Woodstock, Windham, Connecticut." The Family Group Record for that couple shows that William was born "4 Jan 1777 Canaan, Colum, Cn," and died "31 Mar 1840" and shows William's parents to be Increase Child and Olive Pease. The Canaan in modern Connecticut is in Litchfield County, at the western end of the state, not Colum, which is not a county on the modern map. Possibly Canaan, Columbia County, New York, is the location intended. The record also lists 6 children, Jenette Child, born "Abt 1803;" William Child, born "Abt 1805;" Mary Ann Child, born "Abt. 1807;" George Child, born "Abt 1809;" John Child, born "Abt 1811;" and Faber Child, born "Abt 1813." All are born in "Woodstock, Windham, Connecticut," although Mary Ann has <> around this location to indicate some doubt and John and Faber show the birthplace only as "Woodstock, , Connecticut."

There is no hint of a connection between these people and Nathan Weed.

________Other Evidence________Polly Childs

At familysearch.org there is a Family Group Record from the International Genealogical Index v5.0 for Daniel Kellogg and Polly Childs that shows their marriage in "1799 Greenfield, Saratoga, New York." Her birth year is 1778 and his parents are Jonathan Kellogg and Susanna Chichester, but no other information is given.

At familysearch.org there are 3 individual records from the International Genealogical Index v5.0 for Daniel Kellogg that show his christening "21 FEB 1773 New Canaan, Fairfield, Connecticut," by his parents Jonathan Kellogg and Susanna Chichester. One record adds the name of his spouse as "Mary or Polly Childs" and has information about their family. The Family Group Record shows "Mary or Polly Childs" born "About 1777 Of, Greenfield, Saratoga, New York," and lists 5 children: Phebe Kellogg, born "About 1801;" Cynthia Kellogg, born "About 1803;" Mary Kellogg, born "About 1805;" Samuel Weed Kellogg, christened "07 APR 1807;" and Daniel Kellogg, born "About 1809," all the events in "Greenfield, Saratoga, New York."

At familysearch.org there are 5 individual records from the Pedigree Resource File for a Daniel Kellogg, christened "21 Feb 1773 New Canaan, , Fairfield, CT," with parents Jonathan Kellogg and Susanna Chichester and spouse "Mary or Polly Childs." These records have Daniel's death on "24 Oct 1833 Gainesville, , Wyoming, NY." I don't know what information the creators of these records indicate is missing after New Canaan or Gainesville with the double commas, but presumably some other political subdivisions of Fairfield or Wyoming counties.

At familysearch.org there are 5 individual records from the Pedigree Resource File for a Mary Kellogg, born "5 Dec 1816 Gainesville,,Wyoming,NY," with parents Daniel Kellogg and "Mary or Polly Childs" and spouse Amasa Edson Belden. Her marriage is given "1834 Gainesville,,Wyoming,NY," and her death is "16 Feb 1877 Malden,,Bureau,IL." There do not seem to be corresponding records for Phebe, Cynthia, Samuel Weed, or Daniel, children listed in the International Genealogical Index for what seems to be the same family.

________Census Records________

In posting number 1098 on the Weed Family forum at genforum.genealogy.com I detailed some of the information from the New York censuses that doesn't disagree with this picture and suggests where further evidence could be sought. Some of that information is repeated in the following because of its pertinence to the picture of Nathan Weed and new census information for possible descendants is added.

________1790 Census________

According to heritagequestonline.com the only household headed by a Nathan Weed in New York is in Frederickstown, Dutchess County. Nathan Weed has in his household 1 male over 15 (himself), 2 males under 16, and 4 females of all ages. Clearly this Nathan could have been born about 1732 and have his wife, Lydia, and any other surviving daughters still in his household. It is possible one of the under 16 males in Nathan's household was Joseph's younger brother, Joel, if he were the boy born in 1776 in Stamford.

The only household headed by an Isaac Phillips in New York in the heritagequestonline.com index is in Stephentown, Albany County. Modern Stephentown is just west of the Massachusetts border, in Rensselaer County, which was partitioned from Albany County in 1791. There is 1 male over 15 (himself) and 1 female of any age. It doesn't seem very likely that this childless married couple includes Lydia, daughter of Nathan Weed, turning 33 this year, especially since the 1800 census household has a number of children over 10.

The only household headed by a Joseph Weed in New York in the heritagequestonline.com index is also in Frederickstown, Dutchess County, and is only 2 lines below the Nathan Weed household on the census form. Joseph Weed has in his household 1 male over 15 (himself, 23 that year) and 1 female (his wife Ruth Ann, 22 that year), whom he had married the year before. His daughter, Hannah, is to be born the next year in Catskill, Greene County, west of the Hudson and upriver. Frederickstown was later renamed Kent and fell into Putnam County when that was carved out of Dutchess County.

There are no households in any state headed by Nathaniel Hayes, which is a little odd since he and Rebecca were married about 1785, so they could have had their own household, and his father, also Nathaniel Hayes, doesn't die until 1807, when he is buried in Chenango County, New York, according to the ancestry.com individual record in the International Genealogical Index v5.0.

________1800 Census________

According to heritagequestonline.com the only household headed by a Nathan Weed in New York is in Freehold, Greene County. This household has 1 male under 10, 1 male 16 to 25, and 1 male over 44 (probably Nathan, himself, if he were born before 1756), and 1 female over 44 (probably Lydia, if she were born before 1756). Did Nathan and his wife have another son after the 1790 census? This seems unlikely, since the Nathan Weed born about 1732 would have been 58 in 1790 and 68 in this census and the Lydia having her first child in 1755 would be unlikely to have another more than 35 years later. If Joel were 1 of the under 16 males in 1790 then he is now out in his own household in this census and should be under 26. The remaining under 26 male in this census could have been the other of the under 16 males in 1790 if he were over 5 then. Three females of any age present in the 1790 census are now gone and one could have been the Polly Childs who married Daniel Kellogg in 1799.

At heritagequestonline.com there is a household headed by Isaac Phillips in Northumberland, Saratoga County, New York, with 1 male 16 to 25, 1 male over 44, 2 females 10 to 15, and 1 female 26 to 44 (Lydia would be 43 this year).

According to heritagequestonline.com the only household headed by a Nathaniel Hayes in New York is in Freehold, Greene County, and is 4 lines above the Nathan Weed household on the census form. This household has 3 males under 10, 1 male 10 to 15, and 1 male 26 to 44 (Nathaniel, himself, 36 this year), 2 females under 10, and 1 female 26 to 44 (probably Rebecca, 37 or 38 this year).

According to heritagequestonline.com there are only 2 households in New York headed by a Joseph Weed and one is in Catskill, Greene County. The other is in Watervliet, Albany County, and will be ignored in this note. Joseph Weed has in his household a male under 10, who could be the newborn George, a male 26 to 44, who is himself (33 in 1800), a female under 10, who could be Hannah (9 in 1800), and a female 26 to 44, who could be Ruth Ann (32 in 1800).

According to heritagequestonline.com the only household headed by a Joel Weed in New York is in Catskill, Greene County, and is on the next census-form line after Joseph Weed's. Joel has in his household 2 males under 10, who could be Thurlow (3 in 1800) and a brother, a male 26 to 44, who is himself (if he were born between 1767, to be younger than Joseph, and 1774, to be 26), and a female 26 to 44, who could be Mary (if she were born in 1774 or earlier but after 1754.)

At heritagequestonline.com there is a household headed by Daniel Kellogg in Greenfield, Saratoga County, New York, with 1 male under 10, 1 male 26 to 44 (Daniel is 27 this year), and 1 female 16 to 25. This certainly could be the household of the couple married in 1799 with an infant son, and implies Polly Childs was born from 1774 to 1783. She would have been 6 to 15 in 1790 and could have been 1 of the 4 females in Nathan's household.

________1810 Census________

At heritagequestonline.com or ancestry.com there is no Nathan Weed as head of a household in 1810 in New York. Since the Nathan Weed who was buried in Chenango County in 1815 at age 83 is about 78 in this census, he is probably living as an old man in someone else's household, maybe in Chenango County.

According to heritagequestonline.com there is a household headed by an Isaac Phillips in Green[sic], Chenango County, New York. On the census form it is 14 households after the Nathaniel Hayes household below. This household has 1 male 16 to 25, 1 male over 44, 2 females 16 to 25, and 1 female over 44 (Lydia would be 53 this year).

According to heritagequestonline.com the only household headed by a Nathaniel Hayes in New York is in Green[sic], Chenango County. This household has 1 male under 10, 2 males 10 to 15, 1 male 16 to 25, 2 males over 44 (Nathaniel would be 46 this year but is the other Nathan Weed?), 1 female 16 to 25, and 1 female over 44 (Rebecca would be 47 or 48 this year). Missing from this household is anyone who could be the wife (Lydia?) of Nathan Weed, so one could look for her death after 1800 but before 1810 either in Freehold, Greene County, or in Greene, Chenango County.

According to heritagequestonline.com there are 3 households in New York headed by a Joseph Weed; those in Greenfield, Saratoga County, and Cicero, Onondaga County, will be ignored in this note. The household in Catskill, Greene County, shows 1 male 10 to 15 who could be George (10 this year), 1 male 26 to 45 who is Joseph (43 in 1810), and a female 26 to 44 who is likely Ruth Ann (42 in 1810.) According to our papers their daughter Hannah had married in 1807, so she is now out of the household. No one in this household is engaged in agriculture.

According to heritagequestonline.com there is a household in Oxford, Chenango County, New York, headed by a John Hall with 1 male under 10, 1 male 26 to 44 (John would be 29 this year), and 1 female 16 to 25 (Hannah would turn 19 this year).

According to heritagequestonline.com the only household headed by a Joel Weed in New York is in an unlisted township in Onondaga County. This household has 1 male under 10 (Thurlow's second brother?), 2 males 10 to 15 who could be the 2 males under 10 of the 1800 census (Thurlow and 1 of his brothers?) if they were 5 or younger in 1800, 1 male 26 to 44 who is Joel (if born between 1767 and 1784), 1 female under 10, and 1 female 26 to 44 who could again be Mary (if she were born between 1766 and 1784.)

At heritagequestonline.com there is a household headed by Daniel Kellogg in Greenfield, Saratoga County, New York, with 1 male under 10, 1 male 26 to 44 (Daniel is 37 this year), 1 female under 10, 1 female 10 to 15, and 1 female 26 to 45. This could be the Daniel Kellogg and Mary or Polly Childs couple, but they seem to have lost the male child from the 1800 census and replaced him with a female over 10 and had a son and daughter in the interim.

________1820 Census________

According to heritagequestonline.com the only household headed by a Nathaniel Hayes in New York is in Greene, Chenango County. This household has 2 males 16 to 25 (but none 16 to 18), 1 male over 44 (Nathaniel would be 56 this year), 1 female under 10, and 1 female over 44 (Rebecca would be 57 or 58 this year). Only 1 person is engaged in agriculture.

According to heritagequestonline.com there is a household in Oxford, Chenango County, New York, headed by a John Hall with 2 males under 10, 1 male 10 to 15, 1 male 16 to 25 (John would be 39 this year), 2 females under 10, 1 female 16 to 25 (Hannah would be 29 this year), and 1 female over 44. Are these errors in ages enough to discredit this household as the same one found 10 years earlier? Is Hannah's widowed mother, Ruth Ann (52 this year), living in the household? There is also 1 person engaged in agriculture.

At heritagequestonline.com there is a household headed by Daniel Kellogg in Gainsville, Genesee County, New York, with 1 male 10 to 15, 1 male over 44 (Daniel was 47 this year), 1 female under 10 (Mary was born in 1816), 1 female 10 to 15, and 1 female 26 to 44 (Polly Childs was 42 or 43 this year). The census shows that 2 persons were engaged in agriculture. The modern map shows a Gainsville in Wyoming County (just south of modern Genesee County) but indexes only Gainesville, so there is some variability in the name of this place.
