Surnames: Dunbar, Hicks,
My ggggrandmother was Keziah Dunbar who married Ralph Russell...They were born in the l780s. I've recently learned that Keziah Dunbar and her children are buried in the Union Cemetery, North Creek, New York. I am making a trip to North Creek this May and will try to locate these graves and photograph.
Ralph Russell was the son of Jonathan Russell and Elizabeth Powers from Conn, however someplace I heard that these families originated in RI.

The trip to North Creek went very well. I was able to meet with the Town Historian and was able to take photos of the graves. I have one of Keziah (Dunbar) Russell's grave-which is holding up quite well. Keziah is buried at the Union Cemetery, North Creek, New York and several of her children surround her. I didn't have the time this trip to get over to Ralph Russells gravesite.
Also, someplace I discovered and wrote down Keziah's parents-Apollas Dunbar and Abigail Packard Dunbar.
I'm recently returned from the New York City Book Show and have not had time to look up some additional information--hopefully next week.
If you would like a photo email copy of Keziah's gravesite email me direct at tennake2@aol.com and I'd be happy to send it to you. I'm going to try searching the Dunbars in the Conn. historical records because my leg of the Russell/Dunbars may have started out at Lebanon, Conn.

I know there were DUNBARs in the greater Albany area in the 1800's and a John DUNBAR married Margaret TOMPKINS from there. Their first 2 children were born in NY. He was a teamster and must have met her there.

There are a ton of dunbars, some belong to the Robert/Rose DUNBARS in MA. Others migrated between MA, RI, and NY.

It's difficult to pin them down.

There's Moses (executed for treason during the Revolution) and his many descendents who lived in CT.

Say if I can help any.

Surnames: Dunbar, Waldron, Russell, Keith, Roblee
I've rec'd info and discover that my Dunbar line does go back to Robert Dunbar/Rose. Keziah's parents were Appolos and Abagail (Packard) Dunbar. Appolos born Easton, Bristol, Mass. His father was John Dunbar. Interestingly enough, via this information I find that Abagail Packard who was Keziah's mother is buried at the Union Cemetery at North Creek. I wish I had known when I was up there last month. My next trip to the North Country..early Fall I expect, I will attempt to locate the gravesite and photograph. My leg came from New Hampshire. Because of my research work while writing my novels, my concentration for years has been the Waldron Family and the Waldron men, without a doubt liked hardy, robust women and the Waldron ladies were attracted to that same Can-do spirit. When the Dunbars settled in the North Country (circa l800) they were in the wilds of one of the last frontiers of New York. I look forward to discovering more about them.
I am thinking that my Keziah was named in honor of her Aunt, Keziah b. l763? Appolos and she were children of John Dunbar and Mary Keith.
Sincerely,

Have you checked the Massahusett Dunbar line starting with Robert in Hingham, MA in 1655? Keziah, Appllos and Packards are family names in that line. There is a separate Connecticut Dunbar line that is not related to Robert's line and has often confused researchers.

Thank you for your reply.

I haven't found a link to the Hingham DUNBARs.

The total family migrated back and forth through MA, RI, and the general Albany area of NY.

Some of the family in CT descend from Robert including the "infamous" Moses.

I maintain two trees and a massive excel data sheet on the DUNBARs. One is called "Misc Dunbars" where I post gleanings from the many posts that are not known relatives.

George and Elizabeth's marriage is in "Arnold's Rendering. No parentage mentioned.

The RI Historical Society has had many written inquiries going back to 1943 regarding this couple. I will try the Newport Town officials, next.

As I've told others; if you can demonstrate a connectio, willing to share descendent info.

Thanx, again, Brus

Thanks for replying, Brus. A long time ago a reputable genealogist (Jacobus, I believe.) connected the Robert and Moses lines through Robert's son John. Later he retracted the connection and clarified the relationship in The American Genealogist (TAG), noting that the two families do not relate directly to each other. The problem continues because it was posted to the web and passed on as fact, despite the original authors retraction. The person that posted the information did not follow through on proving the relationship and completing the relationship.

There is a similar problem with a false connection that is often repeated where Robert of Hingham is stated to be the son of Ninian Dunbar of Scotland, thus solvong the problem of Robert's father and place of origin and birth. The problem is that if you look at Ninian's son Robert you find that he died in Scotland about 1667. Robert of Hingham died in Massachusetts in 1693.

The two problems were corected in AnnChaplin's genealogy Robert Dunbar of Hingham, Massachusetts.

Take care,
