Does someone have access to early birth & marriage records from Herkimer County?
My 2-great-grandfather was Philo McDonald son of William H. & Joannah AXFORD - and grandson of William R. McDONALD/Jane McCREA of Ohio, Herkimer.
Looks like there was an uncle by the name Philo F. McDONALD as well.
My Philo McD' was said to be son of Wm H. but his death record from Michigan (photocopy of original) shows his father as being Samuel McD'.
There was a Samuel McDonald who was hanged. I'd like to see if there is a copy of anything from 1820 probably Ohio, Herkimer Co., NY
There could be a marriage record for Philo McDonald and Lucinda SMITH. I am wondering if she were from the old Smith/Schmit family who had a woman by the name of Lucinda kidnapped by American Natives from Canada.
This Lucinda would have been born NY about 1818 but her parents were from Conneticut. firstname.lastname@example.org
