Title: Deforest Lineage
Description: Seeking: Deforest Lineage. Our great great grandmother was Mary Deforest (b. 1810 Newtown, Queens). She married William Wells and had one* child, John Augustus Wells (b. 1830 Newtown). Widowed? she remarried (John) Thomas McCoy and had four* children, Theodore Codington (b. 1837 NJ), William Thomas (b. 1840 NY), Martha A. (b. 1843 NY), Margaret (b. 1845 NY). Mary died in June 1864 in NYC and was buried in Union Cemetery in Brooklyn, and then reburied in Cedar Grove in Queens. (The saga of the fate of Union Cemetery's 30,000 souls can be found online.) Any information about the Deforests of Newtown, Queens would be much appreciated. Note: *There may have been another daughter, Sarah (Wells or McCoy) (b. 1834). Sue Abrahamsen, P.O.
