James CONKLIN family arrived Owego 1820

Surnames: Conklin
I am still searching for the James Conklin family prior to 1820 when they
arrived in Owego, NY from Rockland County, NY. I have communicated with many
Conklin researchers in the past year (you know who you are) and we
collectively have not connected this Conklin line from Rockland County (part
of Orange County prior to 1798).

The Jacob Conklin (1st son of James) line has been published in the DAR
Magazine December 1984 (pg 786) - Jacob Conklin Bible. It does not indicate
who submitted the material. It may also,have been printed in the March 2000
issue of the DAR Magazine, page 174, but I do not have a copy.

Jacob Conklin married Johanna (AKA Joanna) Armstrong (b. Oct 25, 1796) on Sep
10, 1814 at Florida, Orange Co., NY. Ancestors of Johanna Armstrong can be
seen at the "Owen & Related Families" on the WorldConnect Project and Joanna
Armstrong can be seen at "The Joseph McCreery Clan" on WorldConnect Project.
This is the same Johanna/Joanna.

Following is an informal summary of the James Conklin Family. Anyone with
information about James Sr. in Orange/Rockland Co., NY and his family prior
to 1820 please help me break through this brick wall. Thanks.
