Wood lines in Sullivan County

Wood lines in Sullivan County

Surnames: Wood, Crissell, Polhemus
I'm looking for information on the first Wood's from different Wood lines in Sullivan County. Anyone know how many different lines there are?

Specifically, I'm looking to link James Wood m. Sarah Crissell to any of the lines. One record I have for him states he was born in Connecticut, but he seems to have ties to other Woods, and also the Jordan Crissell, Amy Polhemus family that come from Ulster and Dutchess counties.

Any info on the progenitors of the Wood lines would be welcome as well so I can start to focus my research and put the right Wood's in the right lines.

Thanks

Hi,
About when was James born? About when & where did he marry Sarah?

Hi Judy,
He was b abt 1814 (several records state he was born in CT). the earliest child I have record of was b abt 1841 but 1865 NY census lists her as having given birth to 9 children. 1840 census show he was married with 1 child under 5, si I'm guessing they were married around 1834. Sarah's birth year is all over the map and ranges from 1815 to 1828 in census records. My best guess is that she was born abt 1820

Hi,

All that I found was the 1840 Census that he lived in Fallsburgh, Sullivan, NY.

In New York state (except for NYC) all of the vital records before 1880 were originated & filed in the Town Clerk's office. Generally speaking they aren't on-line. Fallsburg New York Town Clerk, www.townoffallsburg.com/Pages/clerk.htm. He/she might have their marriage license.

The Sullivan County Historical Society, www.scnyhistory.org/index.php/department might have more info about them. Successful Searching!
