    Editorial

    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 membership.

    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 told.”

    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.

    Additions and Corrections are to articles published between 2009 and 2012.
