Dr. Sanford SMITH – Seth CHASE – OCD – Wallomsac Patent

Still don’t have the photo thing figured out. Now I have them on my webpage but don’t know how to find them. Still working on it.

Have been updating files on Dr. Sanford SMITH and his wife Priscilla (WHIPPO) SMITH of White Creek and later at Cayuga Co., NY. They used to live immediately across the street from Seth CHASE on Cobble Hill Road in White Creek and they are the direct ancestors of both Presidents George BUSH. This WHIPPO family also ties into the OCD through the LAWRENCE Family. Col. Bigelow LAWRENCE from Connecticut to Shaftsbury, Vermont and then to Marcellus, Onondaga Co., NY., had a very large family, mostly male and they mostly all served in the revolution or the war of 1812. Rufus LAWRENCE, a son, married Jane (WHIPPO) presumably a sister of James and Priscilla WHIPPO.

Received an extensive update of CHASE descendants from Nancy Ward of Syracuse. Will be posting the additional information on my website when I get time.

Have been working quite a bit on Goldsboro BANYAR and William BANYAR, and the Walloomsac Patent in Bennington, White Creek and Hoosick.

    I just came across your post. My father was Don Lawrence Jr. and my grandfather was Don Lawrence Sr., both direct descendents of Col. Bigelow Lawrence.
