Hi Bill, Thanks for the response. I have a message from you dated 1999 regarding this topic, so we are both still searching. I have not much new to add.
Annie Ourie married Isaac Stocum (Stokem) about 1804 probably in NY.
The Stokems first appear in Delaware County NY in the 1800 Census. Isaac the father with sons Isaac Jr, Caleb and Noah.
Annie Ourie and Issac Stocum are married and in Hector, Seneca, NY in 1810. By 1820 they are in Henrietta, Ontario, NY; and in 1830 are in Southington, Trumball, OH. In 1840 they are in Nelson, Portage, OH and in 1850 the same. Birthplace is shown as NY for each of them.
As you point out there are many variations for a name that sounds like Ury, Ourie, Howery, Awrey, etc.
Since we both have the unusual Ourie I would presume that to be the correct spelling.
Let me know if you see anything interesting here.
