Arcadia, Butler, Galen, Lyons and Macedon

The typescript of the list of births that took place in Wayne County in 1849 was gratiously provided to us by the Wayne County Historian's Office. We hope this list provides clues to ancestral location and helps you better formulate questions when visiting the societies or ordering mail searches. We assume many of the couples and their children joined the migration out to Michigan and other points west. If you recognize anyone on this list, please drop us a line so it can be noted next to their listing.

As you scan the listings you'll see unusual spellings. They're not typos we've made but can be attributed to the original typist's interpretation of old handwriting, or assumptions made by the registrars of the births. If a spelling differs from that of your ancestral surname, or births didn't take place in the townships you thought your ancestors were from, don't pass them by. Jot them down...just in case. A date and location can be used to search in the 1850 census or the info may turn out useful to others searching your surnames.

During years 1847 - 1850 some New York State counties officially recorded information about births, marriages and deaths. Then they just stopped. Not all counties preserved this early information so each county must be taken on a case-by-case basis in making inquiries of societies. Required birth registration didn't start in New York State until 1880, over 30 years after the 1847 - 1850 events were recorded, and wasn't really enforced until 1900. New York State death registration wasn't required until just after 1900. Marriage certificates were issued in the 1860s but kept by the couple and written down by the person performing the marriage.

Listing from Arcadia Births 1849

"Henry H. Averill Sept. 13 Horace & Caroline Averill"

Hi, I found this while searching for family, Horace is my 2nd great grand father and I found them in the 1850 us census of Arcadia, and Henry H is listed as James H. & just Harison in 1856 Iowa census. I found them next door to his Father Asa & Mother Arathusa. I found a cemetery listing for Arathusa in the Old Marbletown cem. but nothing for Asa. Horace & Caroline then moved to Iowa, found in 1856 Iowa census.

Re: Buisch twins
From: Alice M. Pierce

There was a note in my father-in-law's papers that said that George and Dorothea Buisch had twins that did not survive. I was delighted to see a listing for George and Dorothy Bish for a female twin and a male twin born July 29, 1849 in your list of Lyons births 1849. I'm sure that is the right one: they went on to have 7 more children. Can you put in a note to indicate the alternate spelling? I was SO pleased to see that! My father-in-law left very good notes.

Re: Alexander Driscol July 14 Jeremiah & Nancy Driscol
From: Shellie

The Alexander Driscol born to Jeremiah and Nancy Driscol is my gggrandfather. Thank you so much for posting these as I wondered what day Alexander was born. Wish they had put down Nancy's maiden name, but just the same thank you. I have also been told that Jeremiah and family came from the Parish of Skull, Cork county, Ireland. I just found out from my genealogical source that Nancy's maiden name was McCarthy. This was Jeremiah's second marriage. Jeremiah and Anne aka. Nancy were married at The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary on October 8, 1834, in County Cork, Ireland. Nancy's mothers name was Ellen Brown. Apparently Jeremiah had 11 or so children with his first wife but at this time I do not know her name. Maybe with this info. I can help other people as I did not know that Jeremiah was married twice.Alexander was born in Wayne county, New York, Township Arcadia. Alexander Driscoll moved to St. Louis, Missouri, where he died in 1904. Then his body was taken back to Lyons, New York, where he is buried with his father, mother and siblings. He married Sarah Isabelle Young. Thanks again for posting the 1849 births.:)

Re: Wilber (female) Oct. ? Jefferson & Elizabeth Ann Wilbur
From: Ginni Morey

Her name was Elmira Eisenlord Wilbur born 10 October 1849. Jefferson & Ann moved to Illinois around 1850 then settled in Ponca Nebraska from 1860. Jefferson & Ann were my 3rd great grandparents.

Re: William Burch Aug. 9 Welston & Harriet M. Burch
From: Ginni Morey

The father's name is actually Wolston. Harriet's maiden name is Wilbur and is the sister of Jefferson. Wolston & Harriet moved to Michigan about 1855. Wolston died in 1871 from complication of heat stroke received during the Civil War. Harriet remarried Levi Galehouse and spent years trying to receive Wolston's pension. She died before receiving it.

Re: Elias Cost Rosecrants Dec. 19 Elias & Francis Rosecrants
From Elise Anderson

Just found a name on the Lyons 1849 birth that I believe might be my 2nd greatfather and his first wife. Elias Rosecrants moved on to Saginaw, Michigan area. He changed his name to Elias Rosencrants. His brother, Mark Rosecrants retained the original spelling. Two sisters, Margaret and Jane along with his father, James Rosecrants all ended up in Michigan.


I am delighted to claim one of the names on your list of births. In the year 1849, town of Lyons, my great great grandparents (John R. and Margrett Supple) gave birth on Oct 20 to my great great aunt, Margaret C. Supple. As an aside on the spelling of "Margaret," I have a piece of paper (containing a lock of HER mother's hair!) my gg grandmother signed "Margrett C. Supple" in 1860. Also, her maiden name was "Campbell."

A (hopefully) quick question; how do I go about finding this same birthdate information for my gg grandmother (Mary Elizabeth Supple) in Lyons in the year 1847? You mentioned the records were kept starting in 1847. Any chance that information is available somewhere online? [We were only provided with the 1849 records and that might be the year the towns started collecting birth records. You can email the Office of the County Historian to see if they do.]

Thank you for the wonderful service you provide... some days just finding a name and corresponding date that tally with your guesses and assumptions can make all the difference.

Best regards,

April Canaday
