I am looking for the ancestry of John Orrent Romer of Mamakating, Sullivan Co, NY who married Cornelia, dau of Ira Terwilliger and Maria Tice. Cornelia's age is rather variable in the census records.
In 1850 he was 16 and living with Jucreose and Mary L. Bennet and family as a laborer
I do not find him in the 1860 census and have tried a bunch of spellings.
In 1870 he is 36 in Mamakating, a farmer. Wife is Cornelia, age 42. Children: Mary E (13), Chauncey (10), George V. (8), and Francis T (3)
In 1880 he is 44 in Mamakating. Wife is Cornelia, age 48. Children: Chauncy, George V and Frank
In 1900 I don't find him. However, Cornelia Terwilliger, age 70, is living alone, widowed and next door to Peter Terwilliger. In other census records Peter is living next door to Silas Terwilliger. I can't connect the Terwilligers.
I am interested in both the Romers' and Terwilligers' ancestry and/or familial connections.
