Kilmer

 

John KILMER

Born in Germany and was married to Elizabeth (UNKNOWN) date and location unknown. She was also born in Germany. They first appear in the 1820 US Census in Camillus, Onondaga County, New York, and do not appear again. I have found very little information on them, and most of that is from the death certificate of his son, Charles Elias Kilmer (the only known descendant at this time).

Elias Charles KILMER

Born in Onondaga County, New York on April 21, 1813. Appears in 1830 US Census in Salina, Onondaga County, New York. The 1830 Census lists a Nathan KILMER in Salina, and the 1840 Census shows a Nathan KILMER and an Abram KILMER in Salina on the same page. I will be searching for a possible connection through them in the future.

The US Army Register of Enlistments for 1835 to 1839 shows Elias C. Kilmer enlisting in Utica, NY on November 2nd, 1837.  The records show he was 24 years old, had grey eyes, brown hair, of fair complexion, stood 5 ft 8 3/4 in, born in Onondaga County New York.  He enlisted for 3 years and was assigned to Company G of the 1st Infantry Regiment serving at Fort Fanning, Florida during the latter part of the Seminole War.  He attaining the rank of Sergeant and was discharged on November 2nd, 1840 upon the expiration of his enlistment.

Elias Charles was on the move after 1840. He appears in the 1850 US Census in Dix, Chemung County, New York (under the surname is spelled KILLMORE), married to Mehitable BURGESS. Mehitable was born on October 15, 1822 in Junis, Seneca County, New York. She was the Daughter of Benjamin BURGESS and Delilah ..?.. The date of their marriage is unknown. The 1850 Census also shows they had two children (Mary Jane and Myron) at that time.

The 1860 US Census finds Charles Elias and family in West Almond, Allegany County, New York. They lived there until sometime prior to the 1875 New York State Census. In that Census they are enumerated with Mehitable's parents back in Dix, Chemung County, NY. The children were not with them as they were married and living their own lives in Allegany County by that time.

Charles and Mehitable returned to Allegany County around 1880 and lived in Bolivar until their deaths. Elias died on June 11, 1896 and Mehitable died on September 2, 1899. They are buried at Forest Hills Cemetery in Belmont, Allegany Co., NY.

Cyrus & Nancy (SMITH) CASTERLINE

The History of Allegany County, New York by John S. Minard, page 470 states "Cyrus Casterline, born in Seneca Co. (NY), married Nancy SMITH of Ithaca. Of their six children 2 are living: Cyrus, living in Michigan, and Lucinda (Mrs. Parish Morehouse).  Mr. Casterline settled in that part of Amity (Allegany Co., NY) later set off as Ward in 1818, and developed a farm out of the wilderness.  He died in 1856 , his wife in 1874."   The date of their marriage is assumed to be sometime in 1816 based on the birthdates of Nancy (1799) and their first child Elizabeth (Oct. 1817).

Squire CASTERLINE & Keszia YOUNG

Squire and Keszia are the parents of Cyrus according to research done by an uncle (now deceased) in the 1960's.  I have neither been able to substantiate nor deny his research. If anyone has any information either way on this, please contact me at the email address at the bottom of this page.  There are quite a few of us Casterline researchers looking for the substantiated parents of Cyrus Casterline.

On March 3, 1865 he was released and sent north. He was mustered out on  April 27, 1865.

John B. Lestner returned to Willing, Allegany County, NY after his discharge to take up farming.  On June 6, 1866 he married Deborah Jane Phillips, the daughter of Edwin and Olive (Covel) Phillips of Naples, Ontario County, NY.

John built a small barn on the property to stable his horses and a cow. He also built a hen house and did quite a bit of work on the house.  Until he died he did plowing, hauling and other jobs with his horse around Wellsville and the surrounding area.  On April 9, 1909 Deborah Jane died at home.  She was buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery, Wellsville, NY. 

On June 15, 1914 John married Mariah Perkins. They lived in the house on Hanover Street until his death on March 17, 1919.  He was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery next to Deborah Jane.

David WILSON & Diadama GRAY

Since both were from Hampshire County, Mass., and lived there until 1818, it is assumed the marriage took place there. The actual date and location is unknown. 

Diadama born July 11, 1769 in Pelham, Massachusetts and died on June 25, 1836 in Independence, Allegany County, New York.  She was the daughter of Dea. Matthew and Sarah (BARBER) GRAY.

David, Diadama, five sons, and two daughters began move to Independence, NY late in 1818.  They wintered in Yates and completed the move on March 26, 1819. A daughter and son remained in Massachusetts, but made the move two years later. (Childs Gazetteer, Pg 112).  According to Trask descendants the daughter and son remaining were Diadama and Matthew Wilson. 

According to the records in the Allegany County Historian's office, David & Diadama were buried at the Sherwood Cemetery, Independence, Allegany Co., NY. Those records also state the cemetery was plowed over sometime in the past, and no physical evidence of the cemetery remains.
