Researching the parents of GILBERT BIRDSALL, born about 1784, Dutchess County, NY. GILBERT married OLIVE (SURNAME UNKNOWN, b.about 1785, Dutchess Co) about 1809. Their first three children were born in "NY", the next two in Putnam Co, followed by two in Litchfield Co, Connecticut, then one in Putnam Co, and the last (my great-grandfather, also named GILBERT)in Cayuga Co, NY, in 1832. By 1840, the family was in Michigan. Would also like to know OLIVE's maiden name and the names of her siblings and those of GILBERT (b.c.1784). Grateful for any information!

Do you have an Anna Birdsall (4 Mar. 1764-26 Mar. 1837 or 39) who married Samuel Taylor possibly in Ontario, Canada and was the mother of Rebecca, Hannah, Elizabeth, Anna, Samuel, and Ruth? Taylor was from the Philadelphia area, but his family, being Quakers, moved to Canada after the revolution where families from Dutchess Co. NY had also come. So I suppose that Anna Birdsall's family might also have come from Dutchess Co. Do you know anything about her?
Thank you. Jim Lossing

Do not have an Anna Birdsall in the info I have from Dutchess County, NY. Have a John Birdsall, born 1763 who's parents were John and Elizabeth (Tripp) Birdsall but have no listing of his sibblings.

The father John was born at Long Island 1727, died at Unadilla, NY 1815 / 16. Married 1) Elizabeth Tripp 2) Rebecca Elwell.

E-mail me if I can be of any help.

I don't have an Anna Birdsall but do have a Samuel Birdsall who was born in New Jersersy or Pennsylvania and moved to Ontario, Canada by 1781, his son was born in Canada but I suspect Samuel may have moved to Can. to be with
relatives during the Revolution. Our family suspects that early NY'ers may have been Quakers as well, moving from NJ,to NY to Penn. then to Canada. I am trying to track down siblings of Samuel or siblings of his father (Jacob Birdsall) maybe there is a connection there.
Have you tried "" the LDS Family History site? My Birdsall family is listed there because my mom's family are Mormon and did some research when she married my dad.
Good Luck and please let me know if you find anything- I'll do the same
