Looking for Staples researcher who has researched early Staples in New York City/Westchester County. Have been trying to connect John Staples who lived in Westchester and moved to Manhattan around 1800. Died in 1807. Married Amelia Purdy and others ? Mother remarried, Elizabeth Ransom name when she died.
John was the father of William J Staples, developer of the Town of Stapleton on Staten Island. Unable to find John's father. Have found very little on the family in Westchester.
