Answer this Query:
Title: Adams, Yeomans, Fosgate, Herkimer Families
Description: I would like to correspond with anyone having information on the family history for Nathaniel and Clarissa (Yeomans) Adams, who resided in German Flatts from ~1810 to ~1850. Their marriage announcement in the 1803 Connecticut Centinel suggests Nathaniel was from Colchester and Clarissa from Lebanon, CT. Nathaniel Adams is listed in the 1810 to 1840 Herkimer County census records, but no other family records have been discovered. I understand that fires in Herkimer County vital records offices may have destroyed key family documents including birth records. Family members purchased part or all of the former Burnetsfield Patent lot #5 from the Herkimer family, but I do not have a copy of this grant deed. However family members sold parts and parcels of the former Lot 5 along the Erie Canal as shown in other Herkimer County grant deeds. Names cited in the grant deeds include, John Jost Petrie, Conrad Rickert, Preston Yeomans, Erastus Yeomans, Daniel Yeomans (Rev. War), Abiel and Lucy (Yeomans) Stark, and John and Sophronia (Adams) Fosgate. Nathaniel and Clarissa are buried alongside the Fosgates in Gouverneur, NY. Any insights into the Adams family of German Flatts and their association with the Herkimer family are appreciated.
