M(a)cDOUGAL(L), COE - I am looking for any information on Rev. John H. McDougal b-late 1700's and was said to have lived somewhere in Connecticut. My guess is that it may have been in the southwest corner of the state as his parents were from NYC. His father was a bookbinder in NYC and is buried near St. Paul's Church in NYC. His mother bound him out to a drover when his father died and that may be how he ended up in or near Connecticut. He married Sarah Ann COE around 1800 and had their first child David b-9/10/1807, twins; Harry b-5/8/1808 and Harriet b-5/8/1808, Cyrus b-11/8/1810, and possibly one other son Samuel b-5/9/1824 d-7/11/1824(questionable). John and Sarah moved to Chemung County, N.Y. when the children were young, 1810's. Any information would be appreciated and will share what I have. Thanks in advance for any response. (posted 8/26/1997)

McDOUGAL or McDUGAL, COE, WELLER - I am researching a John McDOUGAL or McDUGAL who lived in Connecticut in the very late 1700's and moved from there around 1810 to the Town of Veteran, Chemung County, New York. He was originally from New York City, but his mother put him out, when he was still young, to a drover after his father died. His father was a bookbinder in New York City and was burried in a cemetery near St. Peter's Church in New York City. John married a Sarah COE or WELLER, possibly in Connecticut. They had several young children before they left. David McDOUGAL b 9/10/1807 was very young when they left. His twin brother and sister, Harry and Harriet may have also been born in Connecticut also. Other siblings were born, but likely after they left. There have been family beliefs that John and Sarah may have lived also in the New York Counties near New York City. John was known to have been a travelling preacher in Chemung County and possibly in Connecticut also. I do have much more that I would like to share with anyone that may be related. My webpage at has a password protected link to what I have. You can e-mail me from there or at to determine if we have a connection and request access.

NICHOLSON, Samuel B. was b. possibly in Litchfield Town, Litchfield Co., CT in 1792. He is found in Erie Co., NY in 1830. Spouse was Eunice CUMMINS. I'm searching for his parents, and wonder about a tie to an Ezra NICHOLSON, who also lived in Litchfield, CT and later in Erie Co., NY. Ezra died about 1844. Land records indicate his children may have been Samuel, Wilbur, James, Josiah and Joseph. I'm not sure about the females in Ezra's family.
