Charles Andrus/Andrews b 1782, son of Samuel ANDREWS and Annice MURRAY who at one time lived  in Stillwater.  Charles married a young Native American girl named Lucinda,  who we believe was daughter of a  John DAVIS.  Charles was baptised at age 16 at Christ Episcopal Church, Ballston, in 1798 as listed in the church records.  In 1801 or thereabouts he married Lucinda b.1786. They Christened  their first three children b.1802,04 and 06 at the same church (church records list her as Cynthia).  They had a total of 13 kids all of whom were named for themselves, Charles' parents and his siblings, except  for 1 son  named John Davis ANDRUS.

Their daughter Catherine married Michael AIDE around 1930. (I believe the marriage was annulled and that she  took back her maiden name, but I'm not sure). Immediate members of  the ASFOURY family included (my father) Edward, Jean and Fred. There  was a George ASFOURY, who I believe to be a brother to John and a  Nicholas ASFOURY who I believe was John's father. Nicholas was a tailor. John owned a greens grocery and they also owned the "Saratoga Arms" at 557 South Broadway. The ASFOURY's originally came from Tripoli, Lebanon. I am most  interested in finding out what happened to Catherine, George and  Nicholas - all seem to have disappeared. Sherrie (ASFOURY) Hardin

JACOX, Sarah. Seeking info regarding Sarah JACOX (died 1820) and her husband Henry UPTON (died 1812) who are supposedly both buried on the "Jacox Farm" in Wilton, Saratoga County, according to Upton genealogy notes. Need help with Sarah JACOX's date of birth, her parents names and birth dates of their children (Sarah, Polly, Eliza, James, Hannah and John) and what other relatives are buried in this cemetery.  I have no info on the JACOX family and am trying to find out their connection to the many Rochester, NY Uptons who descend from one of their sons-either JAMES or JOHN. Can share that info, but cannot find their connection to Wilton. My JAMES UPTON was supposedly born in 1808 and died in 1868 in the Rochester suburb of Greece. He married MARY MOULTON in Albany County in 1831 and they had nine children. Have much info on the descendants of this couple, but am unable to link them back to Wilton. Upton is related to the JOHN UPTON family of Salem Massachusetts, but I believe Henry to be the only one who went to Saratoga County.  Marie
