REUBEN COVERT,

A native of Greenwood, Steuben Co., N.Y., was born June 9, 1843, and was a son of Smith and Mehitable (LUCE) COVERT, both of whom have long since passed. Nov. 12, 1864 at Greenwood, Erselia KING became his wife and the result of this union is five children born in the order named: Norman G., Dever, Mary C., Alice M. and A.J. His wife was born in Greenwood, N.Y., June 2, 1846; her parents long since passed away, were A.J. and Aurelia (CLARK) KING. COMRADE COVERT was but 17 years old when the late Civil strife began and was engaged in farming. May 28, 1861, he was enrolled from Scio, N.Y., as a private in Co. C, 67th N.Y.V.I., which was assigned to 1st Brig., 3d Div., 6th A.C.

His grandfather, David LUCE, served in the War of 1812; he had three brothers in service, John and David in 53d Pa. V.I. and Theodore in 4th NY.H.A. John was killed at the battle of Weldon R.R.

Unfortunatly no. The best information I have is from the 1860 census that shows Smith and Mehitable Covert lived in Greenwood, Steuben NY with their children Ruben (17), Theodore (13), Alice (11), and Elias (7). Their son David (22) looks like lived next door. I am a desendent of Theodore.

Do you have any information that could help me?

Thank you!

Good luck. I checked my file and I don't have anything on a Daniel. There seems to be a lot of Covert's in New York but unfortunatly they don't seem to be related, or at least not easily. I am having the worst time with my Covert's and I do not live in New York to use those resources. Plus New York seems to have the worst records. If I run across anything that looks like it might help you I'll let you know.

Thank you,
Wendy

Mehetable Luce, Reuben's mother,was a sister to my 3rd great grandfather, Eleazer Luce, who moved to Michigan in 1868. I have a photo of him if you'd like a copy. I have interesting info on his father and further generations back on the Luce line if you'd like it.
