I am so excited that we connected! I do not know if Daniel attended W. Point, but I have a paper of a "Daniel Hamilton" attending W. Point to show you.
I have Story family pix that start with Burrel's grandson Harry, which is Joseph's child.
I would love to know the actual birth and death dates for Laura. I have requested on gravefinder that someone take a pix of her headstone. Whoever transcribed the headstone had her dying in her early 30s, but I believe she was Joseph Story's mother, and I have her living much longer than that.
There is a journal called the Freeman's Journal in Cooperstown that is not scanned, so you have to actually thumb through it that might help us.
Also, do you see anything about the death of Burrel Story by chance? I suspect he was related to the famous Story family that was in Massachusetts and in Connecticut, as he was born in Connecticut, but I can't find his parents.
I have been told my historians that Chenango County could have information about the Laura and Burrel Story family, as well as Exeter County, since they are nearby each firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Story by birth and a Durian by marriage.
