a. Note:   From: Lisa at (7/14/07) "Hi Lisa, I would be very happy to share info with you. What I have is the following: Info - I have a Mary Jane Iby who married Orange Westover. She died Aug 14, 1854 and was burried Aug 15, 1854. She was born USA and burried in the Noyan Cemetery. She and Orange had three children: Alexander b. 27 Jun 1824, bap. 22 Dec 1853 at St. Thomas Parish Methodist Chruch. He married Alma Griggs, Sep.26, 1848, they also had Emily Westover born 27 Nov, 1827; bap. 27 Mar 1827 St. Thomas Parish Meth. Church, Noyan, and they had Charlotte, b. 1835, bapt. 8 Nov 1871 at St. Thomas Parish, Noyan. from Lorna Rhicard <>" "Info - from Robyn Nesbitt <> I am pretty sure the Alexander you see whose mother was Mary Iby is Alexander Westover. His mother was Mary Iby and his father Orange Westover. I do have some info on this family from census and church records. There is some controversy over Orange's parents. One researcher says that many of the children listed for Silas Westover were actually children of one of his brothers. Some researchers list Silas' wife as Clarissa and others as Lucinda. Do you have any information on Orange's parents?? Where did you get the idea that Orange's wife was Mary Foss/Foas? I have info stating that Orange's older sister, Clarissa, married John Keith: Judy Antle, Archivist from the Missisquoi Historical Society in Stanbridge East Quebec, did find a marriage of a Clarissa Westover who married John Keith on 27 Feb 1815 in St. Armand East (Frelighsburg) Quebec and that it was witnessed by her father SILAS WESTOVER, but no mention of her mother. If Silas was born in 1772 he would be 43 at the time of this marriage. He also had several children before 1815." "I have seven children for Orange and Mary Jane Irby and three additional children for Orange and another unknown wife. These last three children are: James b. abt 1856; John born abt 1858 and Stephen b. abt 1859. I would really like to know if any of these are ones you might attribute to Mary Foas/Foss. --Carl Sheperd>" _____________________ Eileen Shaughnessy Downey <> Apr 15 (7 days ago) to me Hi Barbara, My mother (Nancy Westover Shaughnessy) wrote to you last week about Stephen Westover. She is on vacation this week, so she asked me to keep searching records and write back to you. Thanks for taking the time to look into our genealogy! We appreciate it! A few questions/comments: In the 1900 Census, Stephen's parents were listed as being from England, but he was from Can English. I found that in the 1910 Census, Stephen and Josephine and family were living out in Denver, Colorado. His nationality and both of his parents were listed as "Can English". I found a Stephen Westover, age 20, working as a farm laborer in Monkton, Addison, Vermont in the 1880 Census. He and both of his parents were from Canada. I also found Stephen Westover (boilermaker) and Thomas Westover (brakeman) both living at 451 Tenth St. in the Troy NY City Directory in 1887. It made me think that the two were brothers, although there no ages listed. Our Stephen was in the Troy NY area, because my great grandfather was born near there in 1885 or 1887. I also found a Thomas Westover, age 18, working in Burlington, VT in the 1880 Census. He was born in Canada, but says his father was from Ireland and his mother from Canada (so maybe not the right person?) Do you have any idea where Thomas Westover (brother of Stephen and son of Orange) ended up? I also just realized that our Stephen immigration year (1969) is soon after Orange Westover died (1868). Is it possible that his mother is Jane and that she still included him in the 1871 Canada Census even if he was working in VT or NY? (I realize that his birth year still isn't exact). Finally, Stephen and Josephine's oldest son Stephen was born in Vermont, so I am guessing that they may have been married in Vermont. It looks like doesn't have Vermont marriage records online for the 1800s. Is it possible to get these online or do we need to visit actual locations to get this information? Also, do marriage records from the 1870s/1880s generally include the bride and groom's parents names? Thanks for any thoughts you might have. We will be checking out your blog too.

I have 6 Stephens. Why I can't locate him and parents in the 1870 or 1880 census is a�mystery, since hey immigrated in 1869. I did find him in�the�NY State Census for 1892 in Oneonta. There is another child, The order of the family is: Steven, Josephine 2d Steven age 9, Thomas age 5, Mary age 3, Dela age 2 and Harry age 1. Another thing, it's interesting they were in Oneonta, a place where I visited to research an ancestor. I've over 112 family members from that area, and never put in a Westover, such as Stephen's father. That's another mystery, why don't they show up. Your ancestry tree�popped up as well. I saved your query with my Stephen�born 1959, even tho I know they aren't the same, since I have him in the 1871 Canadian census as son of Jane. Your Stephen would have been in the US. Regarding your Stephen, the 1900 says his parents were born in England, beyond the obvious, I wonder what that means. Since they wrote Canada Eng. for Steven, why didn't they do the same for them. I have at least a thousand people from Canada, and have never seen it written that way in censuses. If you want to pass another idea or thought about Stephen/Steven, please just drop a line. Good luck. Also, I have a genealogy blog. It's at�� there might be something of interest. See the right side, Surname: Westover.
