Searching for information on ZELUFF family of Wayne Co./Cayuga Co. Zebediah and Daniel Zeluff lived in Savannah, Wayne Co., NY in 1820. Zebediah moved on to MI and Daniel stayed in NY and was buried in Mentz Church Cemetery in 1833. I believe Daniel's wife, Susan MORRIS/MORRISON, may have remarried Henry LEONARD after 1833. Also searching for Josephus W. Zeluff. He lived in Skaneateles, Onondaga Co., NY and moved to Orleans Co., NY then to Branch Co., MI.

Thank you for any information you can share with me.

I am looking for my Gr Gr grandfather who according to the 1950 census lived in the village of Newark in the town of Arcadia. He was married to Jane ? and was in early 20's. His name was DANIEL DONNELL and he was a Blacksmith. In the 1860 census it seems he was in Charlestown, Mass. with 5 children and the census indicates they were born in New York, I assume Arcadia? Children were Anna born abt 1851; Mary E. born abt 1853; Susan A. born abt 1856; William born abt 1858 and Daniel born abt 1859.

It is my belief that Daniel, the last child was born in Mass.in 1859 but I am not certain.

Are birth records available for years 1850-1860 in Wayne County that would help in my research?
