This is the fifth issue of American Ancestors Journal, the annual supplement
to the Register, designed to provide readers with genealogical content of national
scope, with an emphasis on New York State and out migrations from New
England. American Ancestors Journal is automatically included with NEHGS
The lead article is Margaret A. (Lester) (Chapman) (Glazier) Crandall of
Franklin County, New York and Her Family, by Judith C. Harbold and Cherry
Fletcher Bamberg. The authors amply demonstrate how much detail can be found
on the life of Margaret Lester (1836–1910) in upstate New York, especially in
newspapers available online. Margaret was widowed three times, having lost the
second husband in the Civil War and the third husband to suicide. Both her
daughters married and moved away from Franklin County, and both were later
hospitalized for mental illness. Margaret’s “story of endurance deserves to be
Muller Family Record: Netherlands, Island of St. Martin, New York City,
gives the vital events for a couple who came to New York City in or before 1809,
when they joined the New York Dutch Reformed Church and the husband filed a
declaration of intent to be naturalized. The list of vital events begins with the
husband’s birth in 1763 and ends with the death of his daughter-in-law in 1894.
We conclude Identifying Judith, Wife of John2 Armistead of Virginia,
with Hone and Aylmer Ancestry of Presidents William Henry and Benjamin
Harrison. In Part 1 author Patricia Law Hatcher had shown that Judith (Hone)
Armistead and Katherine (Hone) (Beverly) Robinson were daughters of
Theophilus1 Hone of Gloucester County, Virginia. In this part the author traces
the Aylmer ancestry of Judith (Aylmer) Hone, mother of Theophilus1 Hone, and
shows that Rev. Justinian1 Aylmer of Virginia was his younger first cousin. A
chart on page 377 shows (as does the text) that Rev. Justinian Aylmer married
Frances Armistead, whose brother married Judith (Hone) Armistead — so
siblings married cousins, a frequent occurrence.
