COLE - Cole, Tunis/Teunis - I am searching for any information at all on this family. Tunis was married to Rosanna Tompson, both from Columbia Co. they are the parents of my G-Grandfather, Adam Cole. I am wondering if Tunis and his wife came to Schoharie Co. with other family members, i.e. brothers, sisters, children, possibly parents.

DEAN - I am looking for information on the Dean family of Middleburg or Jonesville in Schoharie County. Hiram Larkin Dean is my ggg grandfather, his brother Thompson Dean, and sister Harriet Dean were born in Schoharie Co. Their father was married 2-3 times due to death of first wife FNU Thompson after child birth; second wife FNU Larkin after birth of Harriet Dean in 1820. There are two paternal relationships I seek to clarify is that of Moses Dean and Phinius H. Dean. The father of Moses Dean was a Quaker preacher at Middleburg, NY. There also may be a 1/2 sister Sabrina or Salina Dean but not much is know by the family of her and her mother's name is Sally Dean, nee LNU. Hiram Dean's maternal grandfather is said to be Jehiel Larkin of Sloansville. Some, if not all of the family moved to Aurora, Indiana some time in early 1840's. I am looking for other researchers on this family and sources of records in Schoharie that may enable me to round out background information on the family. Jack Hunt - posted 06-04

- Looking for information on this family who owned a Lumber/Saw Mill in Schoharie County and possibly another business (could of been a grocery or a hotel/tavern). My line consists of one JOHN DENNY born 24 August 1816 NY who married LUCRETTA MCNITT (b 15 Sep 1817 Ellisburgh, Jefferson Co. NY). John's parents are a "unknown", have had researchers in the Jefferson Co Historical Society hunt for his birth record - none is found in that county. Am certain that he was born elsewhere in NY and his family moved to Jefferson Co when he was a infant. John's wife Lucetta has family connections with the Lindsays of Sandy Creek, Oswego Co., and also the Goodenoughs and Wolavers.
I had access to a old photo book which showed a small black & white photo of a Timber Company. The Building had the name  "DENEY" painted on the roof in big letters - the photo looked as though it was taken from a high elevation looking down.  My grandfather said it was the family business but didn't remember who ran it ?(uncle, cousin, grandfather ? -just couldn't remember.)  On the back of the photo a badly mis-spelled Scholarie was written in pencil.  The photo is now lost with the photo book - probably got tossed because it was falling apart.
I really would appreciate any help in getting information on the Lumber Mill and any info on the Deney/Denny family of Horace's.  I did find that Horace Denny married to Eleanor Turk and they had a son named Cornelius Denny     Born: 12 OCT 1849 -   Marr: 1871 - Hannah Elizabeth VanVoris   Died: 21 MAR 1892 - Eminence/New York.  I know nothing more of this family.
My family is again   John Deney (aka Denny, Dany,etc)  married Luzetta McNitt in Ellisburgh, Jefferson Co. NY in 1832  and lived there until 1844 moving to Dundee, Kane Co., Illinois residing 5 years moving back to New York to Pierrepont Manor, Jefferson Co until 1861 and then moved to Outagamie area in Wisconsin.  In 1863 they removed to Morristown, Minnesota where they made their final home.   They had four children total - three boys :Chandler, Edgar, and Thomas/Edward? and one daughter Melissa.  The children spelt Deney, Denney and Denny - pronounced "De Ney".  So the original spelling is uncertain.  Ancestry was of French, Dutch and Scot'.
There is a possibility that a Abraham "DANA"/Denny that is listed in the 1825 Ellisburgh, Jefferson Co NY Census is the father of John Deney - as my John is found on the 1835 Census of same place listed also as "DANA" with the same size acreage.  This particular Abraham Denny would be age 46+plus in 1825 as to the info stat's.  He was the father of two or three boys and three girls also by stat' info.  I believe there was a Abraham Dana/Denny residing in the Schoharie County at one time from my research.  There was also a Solomon Deney residing in Ellisburgh for quite a time and is found in Census'.   Please if anyone has any common names with the ones I mention I really would appreciate your help.
I do now believe that Horace Deney who is listed in the "Gazetteer and Business Directory of Schoharie NY 1872-3" is related to my John Deney of Ellisburgh, Jefferson County NY. Horace Deney is listed twice in this book as follows:
Page 235 Saw Mills DENEY HORACE,. Eminence, Fulton
Page 168 Fulton (Post Office Addresses) DENEY HORACE,. (Eminence), Carpenter and Prop. Saw Mill
I have come across also one Horace Dana which is confusing me as our surname Deney has also been spelt "DANY" & "DANA" on two different census's. Since searching my John Deney has not turned up his parents or siblings I am speculating that indeed Horace Deney of Eminence, Schoharie NY is the one and same "lost relative" of my John Deney of which the photo of the "Saw Mill" my grandfather had... is the clue to my John Deney origins(lineage). I now need to know if the Horace Dana and the Horace Deney are of the same family or same person ?? I've been searching through the "Google Books" for some kind of link. I would appreciate any help or answer to my questions. Janice Deney - posted 07-01, updated 06-10
