I am related to his son, Christopher John Doremus. He died 1851. He is living 1850 census Henry Co, Ohio. His father is Cornelis C. His father is Cornelis John. His father is Johannes, His father is Cornelius and believe his father is Hendrick?? John Martins father is buried in Morris Co, NJ. Most of my info comes from two books, The Doremus Family in America 1687-1987, Revised addition based on The Doremus Family History in America by William Nelson (1897. Gateway press inc, Baltimore Md. 1990 I found both books in the Denver Public Library. Not for interlibrary loan.

Randy and Shirley -- I am related to John Martain Doremus and his wife Catherine Amanda Higgins through their daughter Lydia Catherine Doremus. I have Christopher as her brother and also Orasmus -- although I don't know how reliable that information is. She also had a sister Harriet who was married to my g-grandfather first but died in childbirth -- they had a daughter Abby who survived to adulthood and had a family of her own. Do you think we are family? I have no information about the Doremus's prior to Lydia Catherine -- and little or nothing of here siblings...what I do have is information about Lydia's family with Jonas Hackett.

Randy -- do you have your ancestry done back to entry into the USA? As I said -- I have very little information about Lydia Catherine's parents other than their names and the siblings I listed in Indiana.

Hi Randy

I'am related to John and Deborah Doremus through their son Cornelius W. Cornelius was my gg grandfather. I have found alot in the book Doremus Family in America. If you can get a copy of this book, look on pg.184 #3016, John M. that is listed b.26 Jan. 1800 m. in Ohio, d. 25 Jan. 1851 in Defiance, Ohio. It also states that his wife also died there. That's all it states.
But if that is him for sure, his parents would have been Cornelis and Mary Speer Doremus. If you would like more info contact me at my email address.

My mother was a Doremus from Napoleon,OH. Her father was Frank Starr Doremus (d.1948 in Cinn.,OH) and I believe his father was John and his mother Elizabeth. Frank Starr was married twice, my mother was one of 4 children by his second wife Carrie Augenstein. I would appreciate any information that will help me track this side of my family.
